I just recently purchased this site on Flippa based upon the brandability of the domain and the traffic/revenue statistics that were being reported. I think it's a great niche and my initial strategy is to give it a redesign and develop an awesome content section to attract Google rankings.
The seller has been mostly responsive in transferring everything over to me albeit a bit slow but the more I think about it the more I'm starting to get concerned. I am wondering if it is possible to falsify the numbers that the seller is claiming and if so what is the way to tell? The site is ranking for a few long tail keyterms which I guess is good.
I'm wondering if anyone familiar with this stuff could take a look at the listing and let me know your thoughts, and/or if there any specific questions I should ask the seller to help determine if I've possibly been scammed.
I have another 14 days to dispute the sale with Paypal and perhaps I'm just being paranoid, but I just know that there are a lot of scams on Flippa. Except for the design, the site seems to have a lot of promise.
Your thoughts are much appreciated. Thanks!
