Listing Details

This listing is for an Amazon Associates business created in October 2016 in the outdoors niche. The Wordpress site features articles and reviews relating to a range of outdoor activities including fishing, kayaking, and camping. The site earns affiliate commissions from Amazon US, UK, and CA. There is a good traffic split between top posts and since taking over the business, the Seller has enjoyed steady traffic and earnings, with minimal work required.
The business has over 400 pieces of content on the site. The site releases an average of 7 new pieces of content each month. All content is outsourced to a content agency which provides high-quality edited content. A VA publishes these articles on Wordpress, including graphics and images. The VA looks forward to continuing with the new owner.
The Seller has purchased around 10-15 links from individuals within various Facebook groups and a link package of 30 links from an individual who the Seller believes is no longer selling links. The business also has a few links from link exchanges. The Seller has built around 30 scholarship links, though only some are still active as many universities remove scholarship links after a certain amount of time.
One opportunity for the Buyer to pursue is to upgrade the existing content to rank higher. There are hundreds of articles that are currently on the second page of Google. With proper page optimization and link building, it's possible that some of these pages could move to the first page of Google. This niche has some seasonality with higher revenue in the summer and lower revenue in the winter. Expanding the reviews to include more winter products is another option for the Buyer.
*In May 2018 the site received a penalty related to the use of the Yoast plugin. This penalty affected many site owners using this plugin. After recognizing the issue, the Seller de-indexed the unimportant links, and the site returned to its normal position within a few weeks.
*There are some gaps in traffic that are due to tracking codes missing for Google Analytics, and not from actual falls in traffic. This was due to site updates where the tracking code was removed from the site and not replaced immediately, so Google Analytics could not properly track the traffic.
*We’ve decided to use a 9-month average of net profit for the valuation because we felt that a 12-month average did not accurately represent the current state of the business.
