This listing is for an affiliate business created in September 2015 in the home niche. The Wordpress site features first-hand reviews of a specific type of furniture and other accessories for the bedroom. The site earns from a variety of affiliates. This business has a good history, an overall year on year growth, ranks well for many organic keywords, and requires minimal work hours from the Seller.
Around 55% of the traffic is organic from Google with around 40% coming directly through giveaways and coupons. Some traffic comes from Adwords ads paid for by the largest affiliate. SEO work has included page optimization, a site audit, link audits, link building via guest post purchasing, a content plan around keyword ranking, and more. Content is created and published often by a full-time VA. She knows about the sale and looks forward to continuing with the new owner.
Thanks to the giveaways which provide new followers and opt-ins, the email list has around 5000 subscribers. This is an opportunity for the Buyer to monetize as it is not currently being used at all. Facebook, Pinterest, and YouTube contribute a bit to traffic, and YouTube is especially helpful for video reviews.
*The site received a manual link penalty in December 2015. The Seller believes it was a negative SEO campaign, as others in the industry were hit with the same penalty on the same day, and the Seller does not use any 'black-hat' links. The penalty was removed 3 weeks later after the suspicious links were disavowed.
