About This Listing

This listing is for a 2-site Adsense and advertising business package created in October 2015 in the political news niche. The site delivers daily political news (7-10 articles) written by freelance writers and is monetized via ads (Adsense, Taboola, Facebook Audience Network, and Render) displayed throughout the site. Several Facebook pages with a total of about 4 million followers are the primary sources of traffic to the website.

The business includes two additional domains that were used for testing whether new domain names would affect traffic positively. They point to sites that are currently in maintenance modes so that duplicate content is not served.

* You must currently have an approved Adsense account before purchasing this business to assure a successful migration of the business. For more information on setting up an Adsense account, click here.
