There's currently a site listed on Flippa.com I'm interested in. However, I'm not sure how he got the site ranked so well in only 3 months. I had a conversation with the seller, but his english is poor. I asked him about how he achieved the google rankings and amount of traffic in a short time period, he gets almost 10k pageviews a month after only 3 months. He was vague and basically said that he reveals his strategies and seo tactics to the person who will buy the site.
What do you guys think? Is it safe to buy this site or did he boost his seo with the other sites that he currently owns, and remove the links after I purchased it so the site will derank and be worth basically nothing?
I've heard several stories about people buying a young well ranking website that was boosted by pbn link building. Links were removed after purchase and traffic decreased to almost 0 within a month. I'm afraid that's also going to happen to me, but as I said I only know the basics of seo and want advice from internet marketers.
