Need Help....Domain Search Guru..who can find out anything!

Hello,

Looking for member's help....doing my "due diligence".

Here is Problem:

Maybe I am overlooking something or missing..not 100% comfortable.

I am looking to make purchase of a domain that gets 6,000 uniques per day...most traffic comes from Brazil.

The site is 2 years old...parked for 1 year...so all traffic and links come from 1st year alive.

I find approx. 70 plus backlinks...1 indexed page at Google.

Owner installed Google Analytics for last few days for me to test and see traffic.

I have seen host stats for 6-7 months ...all steady.

I imagine the site was in Spanish...majority of Analytics language is en-span.

Majority of traffic comes from Brazil.

Is that why I am missing stuff? In Spanish when it was originally launched?

The click thru rate is very low...at a parked site....so with shear volume does well...6,000 per day.

Can someone verify the domain and dig up stuff in Spanish or Brazil? I am open to paying for report and help.

I will only divulge the domain name thru pm and then only to qualified individuals.

If sale goes thru I will be more forthcoming and will be happy to discuss.

Thanks,
Paul

It sounds like you need to check and see how the site looked when it was up and running. Go to Archive.org and use the wayback machine to take a look.

-Also, If I am not mistaken. Portuguese is the native language of Brazil.

Hey Clotho,

Yes, I did check wayback......site was in English.....had stock quotes/news/conversion.

I just don't get it.

If it was quality generic term...got type-in etc....that may explain some stuff and uniques.....but it isn't.

Thanks for suggestion.

An old ASCII play. Manufactured traffic. Worthless.

Re: Need Help....Domain Search Guru..who can find out anything!

Thanks everyone for help and pms.

I knew in my heart that the traffic was bad and redirected but the daily $$$ bling was hard to ignore.

Lots of warning signs....I guess it is simple equation....if something doesn't make sense:

1) Site is 2 years old, original English website....general news/info
2) 1st year and only one year was there a website on it.
3) 2nd full year it was parked after drop pickup.
4) Now, it gets 6000 uniques per day from Brazil/South America.
5) WTF ?

Money....Blinded me and made me waste time and energy over shit.

Thanks again everyone.

Paul

PS: I will pm the name of site if anyone is interested.
