I know I have been negative toward flippa especially when it comes to selling websites.
But the more I look at the site I do think more people are using the site both players and spammers so there are some good sites on the site to buy if you know where to look.
I came across this website for sale on flippa: twitterfollowers.com. The price right now is $42,000 (you can see the auction here). Why is the price so high? This is a really good exact match domain.
Exact match means the domain is an exact phrase people are going to search for on Google. Google seems to give preference in their rankings if you have a domain that matches exactly what the person searched. And with the rising popularity of Twitter this domain has a lot of earning potential over the long term.
I don’t usually buy websites just for the domain unless it is a good exact match. I am usually more interested in the websites age, how many links it has and if it currently has any rankings. But a good exact match domain can be a quick way into a competitive industry and with this domain for sale (twitterfollowers.com) People would automatically recognize it as an authority because of the domain.
Now I personally have no interest in running a website like this but I thought I would share it with you so you can see an example of what is out on the website flipping market right now.
