    I am selling one of my sites, www.SoapForum.co.uk

    This is a relist and the site was sold at the BIN to three people, two didnt have the money available and I have waited over 3 weeks to hear back from the other winner.

    Please do NOT bid unless you have the money available when the auction ends or at the BIN.

    This is a forum for UK soaps, for example eastenders, coronoation street, Emmerdale etc. as well as general TV.

    The stats are currently:
    Our members have made a total of 33,543 posts
    We have 1,544 registered members

    Traffic stats: Http://www.soapforum.co.uk/temp/soapforum.gif
    Referral stats: Http://www.soapforum.co.uk/temp/soapforum1.gif

    Take a look at the referral stats, the traffic is great quality and you can see for yourself there is a very high % of traffic from search engines.

    I have not paid for advertising ANYWHERE so all traffic is natural.

    Included in the sale:
    Unique design
    Complete site files and databases
    IPB License (Still not 100% on this, I have to get the login information but you can see from the site that there is an IPB license registered for the site)
    Domain name

    The only thing I have done is place adsense in a few places, never really integrated it well.
    Income is $63 since October.
    I'm sure anyone that knows about advertising knows a lot more could be made from this site, some options I would recommend for the new owner would be popup ads - These tend to work a lot better on entertainment related sites.
    Because of the genre of this site I think affiliate links would also work very well - Maybe chitika?

    Other info:

    The site has great links with the entertainment industry and I am often contacted by TV stations, studios and concert organisers and offered tickets, passes etc. but I never take advantage of this because I don't live in England where most of the studios, concerts etc. are.

    Reason for sale:
    I would like to free up a little bit of cash for a quick break next month with my other half so the extra money would come in nicely.

    Payment can be made through paypal or UK bank transfer (I have an Alliance & Leicester account).

    Price: Current Offer $1400
    BIN: $2500 (This was reached by 3 people before so I think its a good level for a site this size).

    End Date: One week from today or open to offers for BIN

    Do you not have vbcode enabled?

    I am actually going away this month and I had to sell another site last week which covered a lot of what I needed but I still need some more.

    I run quite a few sites and I'm trying to focus on three now.

    No John,
    vbcode not enabled To discourage spammers who just want to exploit this forum for free links :)

    You could disable just the URL code ;)

    If you want a hand doing it just let me know, or you could even disable URL just for users with less than x posts.
