When I started Indexwp around nine months ago, I had some serious plans about the site and never thought that I will write this article about selling the site after nine months.
Though it is tough for me to let the site go, I can understand that priorities changes with time.
A lot of hard work gone towards making this site, and it did pay off in many aspects. The site created a name for itself in this short span of time, thanks to all our readers for their continuous support.
A tough one, for sure. I did approach a few guys I know in the WordPress community before putting it on Flippa for their opinion about my decision. 70% opinion was against selling the site 30% if I’m in real need.
I decided to stick to my decision, because few things changed on my personal front which will keep me occupied in the near future and I will not be able to give the site time it needs. Also, I have a few projects in mind which will need my time as well as some cash to execute those projects.
Indexwp Domain & Property
When we talk about a WordPress related website, generally we use WP with some related word which makes it easy to understand the expected content type from the site.
I’m sure Indexwp is one of the easiest to remember and brandable domain possible for WordPress content type. Also, the site contains more than 500 articles which are mostly about WordPress related news and resources.
The site has a steady traffic flow without any kind of paid source of traffic. We receive around 78% organic search traffic followed by direct, referral and social.
In the last three month the site received around 129k page views with 78k uniques and 95k sessions. The bounce rate is on a higher site currently as I was not taking any concrete step to reduce it.
Indexwp has a steady revenue stream through direct ad space and affiliate product links, the site is making slightly more than $2000 per month currently.
- Around $600-700 Direct Ad
- Around $1400 Affiliate
What’s in Store For The New Owner
- Full ownership of Indexwp
- Domain name
- Site content and files
- Twitter account
- Facebook page
- Affiliate Accounts
- Personal assistance from me until you are ready to take it ahead
Indexwp is a great WordPress property and it can do a great job if you have your own WordPress related products. I’m open to offline offers as well.
So if you have a serious amount in mind which will justify the brand value, revenue and the hard work gone towards the site do let me know.
Currently receiving huge number of offline messages on Flippa, I hope my time is justified 🙂
