Buying Your First Website: A Case Study

Notice: This is a discussion thread for comments about the SitePoint article, Buying Your First Website: A Case Study.

nice post, was thinking about buying a site yesterday. This makes it nice and clear how to go about checking the potential popularity.

Pretty weak article… So you looked at a site… and… looked at keywords…? More next time?

I know you are trying to promote Filppa and milk the readers but you need more then that…

Content is King. Not keywords. Keywords help promote a site with good, unique content.

If I were looking at a website to purchase, I’d look at the content provided and traffic trends. Alexa (although inaccurate) would be a place to start.

Now, if you already had a similar site and was looking to purchase to integrate/combine another similar site, that might be more appropriate for keywords/SEO research to help boost or optimize your own search rankings.
