I know that watching websites plummet in the search engines can make the prospect of buying and selling very scary. As with all things there are risks to this business. (and remember, for every site that fell out of the results another replaced it)
I just wanted to write a quick post and let you know that I am still both buying and selling websites. Things are always going to change, you just have to be able to adapt with them.
For example, link building has to be done much differently now than it did a year ago. Doing it wrong can kill your rankings but doing it right will still get you to the top of Google.
I am in the process of selling 2 websites that I bought recently (less than 5 months ago), and as soon as the deal goes through I will post the results here. I will tell you that we are making a nice profit.
There is money to be made in the world of website flipping.
In conclusion, don’t get discouraged and don’t panic. Flipping websites is still a viable business.
