Pagerank Tip 5: Sell Your Blog

I compiled a list of 5 things you can do with your new pagerank. Some agreed and apparently, some are scared to sell links. A lot of bloggers are unhappy with the pagerank system as it has really become irrelevant. Some brand new blogs are getting 5’s, while long established blogs and websites have taken significant hits.

So what’s the point?

Blog for Sale

Instead of debating the paid link dilemma, Matt of Blogging Fingers has followed step five of my list and has decided to sell his blog.

I’ve talking to Matt on several occasions, it will be interesting what kind of project he embarks on next.

In the first month he monetized the blog, it earned 400$. Now with a brand new PR3, that total can definitely increase.

When selling a blog or a website, the rule of thumb is usually 10 months income. If that holds true here the blog is worth about 4,000$ ($3800). I think that can be a great investment for anyone who can take a 4,000$ hit. Within a few months, that cost can definitely be re-couped.

Persons of Interest

So far it isn’t clear exactly HOW Matt will be selling his blog, but Kumiko has already jumped on board and is looking to make an offer. After this post maybe Matt will let me in on the inside story.

    I’m excited to wach the action unfold actually. I hope he post somewhere how much it sold for (or Kumiko how much she bought it for)…I wonder what Kumiko will do with it because her voice is so much different than his.

    I could see Kumiko flipping it. Cashquests is similar to blogging fingers, I dont think she needs it.

    Agree with JackBravo. Many read or subscribe to Blogging Fingers because it’s Matt Jone’s Blogging Fingers. In short, the blogger is the blog.

    I would die. I am so very infatuated with my blog… it would be like… like… I don’t know. I just wouldn’t be happy. Stories like this frighten me. My situation is a different one since I’m part of a network, but, it would be devastating to lose… me. kher Cheng Guan is right, the blogger IS the blog. I don’t want part of “me” to be sold! Sorry for the emotional response but, OMG! What a horrible thought!

    It’s not that frightening a thought, really. If you look at a variety of web properties, people put their heart and soul into them, no doubt. I’m sure the folks at MyBlogLog did, and so did the dudes at YouTube, and i could go on and on. Think of what can be accomplished with funding, which is what a load of money with a sale, would bring you.

    You build bigger and better next time. That is how i see it.
