GeekyTraveller.com For Sale

Darren Barefoot is thinking of selling GeekyTraveller.com according to his post it has the following stats

Google PageRank: 6
Incoming Links (according to Google): 1410
Technorati Rank: 98, 860
Visitors in 2006: 16, 314
Current average daily visitors: 65

I did comment over on his blog but my comments rarely appear over there so thought I would comment here. My advice to Darren was to get in touch with The Krug. David has experience of blog sales from both sides of the table. In website sale negotiations experience counts, as does a fair evaluation. He might buy it himself. If I had the cash I would be tempted.

Recall my earlier post about snapping up blogs in need of a bit of TLC? This could well be one of them! Right now based purely on a multiple of earnings this blog will sell for not much more than the value of the domain. I can see a greater value, I am sure Darren does too, but it will be the buyer who ultimately sets the price.

Someone is going to get a bargain. The travel niche is well served with affiliate offers, and geeks + travel makes for both an interesting AND lucrative topic. Darren has done the hard work, you just would need to give it the attention it deserves and monetize it.

If I was Darren I would put some time into some Andy Hagans style monetization makeovering to raise its sale price. Having said that, if I was ready to buy a blog I would be snapping this baby up before he had a chance!

  1. Thanks for the linkage and the advice. I’m a total noob at this, so every little bit helps.

  3. No worries Darren, I hope you get a good buyer for it. I mean what I say, if I had the spare cash I would buy it myself ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Someone is going to get a belting travel blog – I’ve been a reader of GT for a little while, after starting my own travel blog in 2006.

    Darren, rather than selling up, how about a joint partnership? I love travelling, Im a self confessed geek, and I can help you make some money with the contacts I have.

    Chris, are you the Performancing blogger? I visited the site alot until the Metrics went ๐Ÿ™ Great blog BTW!
