        SUPERHIT
        Still two words, super meaning good - hit meaning in your case, a movie or a song.

        Combining them would make a 'good' song or movie.

        Two words. :p

    nice job.....
    i see flippa is also some luck involved. the right person seeing your site. but you did you homework and did it right. i just listed a $4000 site and did not get one bid. i know the site is worth alot of money but no bids.
    again, i think some luck is involved.
    congrats

    That's pretty amazing.

    I am not used to flippa, but how does the bid go from $51 to $1500 on the 2nd bid? Maybe I'm just familiar with ebay on how they do their auction structure, but great job man!

    Thats pretty amazing, good find.


    also to butzazi:

    hes not saying that the beginning bid was $50, hes saying thats how much he spent in acquiring the domain and listing it.

      I'm looking at the flippa listing and it says 2 bids. First bid was $51 and 2nd bid was $1500.

      I was asking since I am unsure if flippa does "Max bids" or something like that, cause if it did wouldn't the website be sold for $75 or something? Again, I have no idea how flippa works.

    Congrats Mahol! Put this case study into a WSO and also try it again for added proof or a bonus, but use Camtasia to record your screen then sell it!

      If Flippa had a Breathalyzer requirement it would put quite a damper on sales there.

    Any sites I can buy on Flippa that you would recommend? Im a bit skeptic about websites that are a month or two old and already makes adsense income. Who says the flippa seller just didn't send a link over an email list and asked people to click on the ads?
