Got one offer from a hubber if i want to sell my account.just want to know is it possible sell/transfer the account ?
My account with 65 hubs and 15 followers any one have any idea how much these accounts worth ??
That's how much you'd have to pay me to take this account off your hands.
Darkside is right. After taking a squiz, your account couldn't be used for backlinks (you're still below the no follow threshold.) Your articles appear low quality and spun, with no extras (think videos, pictures, links etc).
Since I wrote about 25 quality hubs the other week alone, I wouldn't pay much for what you've got!
And followers are almost meaningless. Many people follow just for the hell of it and there are also many people who spam follow. Unless you get a follower who will backlink or promote your work, followers don't make you money.
If you're getting lots of google views, that's what you should advertise.
The general consensus seems to be - Yes.
Read this forum post for more information:
I have no idea about values however.
If you kept it, you could technically earn thousands if you chose the right keyword. So what price would you put on residual income?
its all spun crap and your account is no follow
tell us what terms you rank for and your daily income and maybe we will make offers
What are you offering it for?
my account has 16 followers
here you can check it here ..
i did not make much money with my hubs .. My last month earnings from ad sense is $5. if you want will show you the proof .
I am open to any kind of offer . just tell me your offer price because i have no idea to the estimate value of it.
I have looked at your 'hubs' and on behalf of the BumbleTown Dump (the Re-Cycling-wordless-items Dept.) I would like to make you an exclusive offer!
I'm sorry that your mis-spelt enterprise has been described as 'Crap' by earlier posters here
I like your spirit mate and clearly as an smart expert, you know that 'smart' sem saying about there always being money in crap!
But of course as there are various degrees of crap.. Values will also vary. In your case; I believe you must be open to any offer above 3xfish and a curry sandwich!
Out of respect for money... it may be prudent to Not discuss the true worth of your busssiness online!
Consider the long term benefits of this:
Don't be too hasty in selling your bussiness now! Maybe a direct link to the marketing dept. of the BumbleTown Dump, will give you better earning power over time... if you donate your 'hubs' to the BumbleTown scavengers scabbie research team. If so; I'm sure you will immediately gain interesting results from scratch!
So.... the BumbleTown Dump (the Re-Cycling-wordless-items Dept.) would like you to be a sponsor! In that way you will get the appropriate recognition and perhaps with the help of our seagulls; greater deposits in your bank and on the statue of your 'smartness' that we would like to erect in testohnomony of your greatness!
Sleep on it mate.... there are alot of birds here who will be hoping that you take advantage of this wonderful opportunity..
I know... Thank you UW..
I think it is really important that people who write know where they stand (from a marketing perspective of course )
There are many 'special' deals that are available throughout the world if they know where to look!
It's sometimes just a matter of rummaging through the ever increasing piles of disposible nappies, to find a truely golden opportunity
And I'd like to thank the OP for sending me the email below:
I will shortly email you a direct link to this party, as soon as I've cleared it with the BumbleTown Re-Cycling of Wordless Items Manager.
I like your comment made on my thread here :
can you please give me the detail information about how to donate my hubs and how bumble town would be my sponsor and increase my earnings .
I offered to buy a hubbers account but never received a reply. He might have been a one hit wonder but I really wanted the account.
How much for, ask them to make an offer. If its any good take the paypal payment then send the user name and password and start again.
Usually when you sell stuff like this on the internet it is monthly income times ten as a guide.
Monthly income times 10?
Why on earth would anyone do that?
Yearly income times 10, sure, maybe. But monthly?
I could see that if the niche is very topical, but sheesh, things don't have to be all that evergreen to keep on earning for at least a few years.
Personally, I wouldn't even think about selling at 10 times yearly, but my site brings in much more than just ad and affilate income, so that is a bit different.
Smartsem, you were posting this thread telling us you got an offer. Now you cannot hold an auction here on the forum.
Like I said above, its worth $50 - maybe. If you really want to sell it, go to digital point forum and sell it there. You will probably find a buyer quite quickly. Hubpage accounts sell well.
note to self:
If a user puts Search engine marketing as part of their user name, 9 times out of 10 they will show up on the forum begging for advice or try and sell their account.

damn - that was supposed to go in my privare files, oh well .. too late now, ho hum
So if you can sell your hubpages account, what effect does that have on the adsense account? Or, generally, is that not included - I thought adsense id was not transferable?
Well you would delete out your publisher ID before selling, give the buyer the password. They would change the password, change the email address associated with the account, and insert their own AdSense ID.
You can have my Hubpages account for $50,000 (that is actually the very minimum that I would consider selling out for, and I would probably still begin building again immediately!).
Yes, of course! Just wondering how that would effect the ads, some of us customise, and surely that would have knock on effect to clicks - which, in turn, has an effect on revenue, which then has an effect on how much the account is worth.
Most of us don't customize though :p
Well, I assume that we don't. I never bother blocking ads, maybe I am missing the trick here?
You mean.... I, I... should be a millionare
I dont know what you are on today Ryan, but can I have some?
p.s. love your additional comment above - talking of clever little tricks eh? heehhe;
You can have my Hubpages account for $50,000 lol (that is actually the very minimum that I would consider selling out for, and I would probably still begin building again immediately!)
I don't block ads, I heard that Adsense only shows low paying ads when high paying ads aren't available and if you block the low paying ones PSA's are put in their place.
I'm not sure what moderators are going to respond about selling hubs or account. But you can always remove Adsense id field or other affiliate id fields from affiliate settings if you want. You don't need to transfer adsense id in order to sell or transfer account. Squidoo has feature of selling lenses on their forums. They have one option in dashboard for lens transfer to another account.
I would love to be able to sell individual hubs on here, I would probably strip back my portfolio to around 300. There are hubs that I would sell for $5-$10.
There is one hub which I would not sell for any less than $10,000! (Actually true).
Well, we all know that Misha has one which he probably wouldn't take any less than $30,000 for!
From what I've experienced there's a good market for hubs that have top 5 rankings in competitive keywords or emerging niches. If you need fast cash to make a mortgage payment or something important, it's not a bad alternative. It's easier to sell Squidoo lenses with high rankings. Here you have to sell the entire account. (Maybe one reason to have lots of accounts.)
I've made a ton of money selling niche websites over the years. Little 10 page wonders that sit on top of the SERPs for 100 or 200 keywords. But they aren't cheap. That's why people sell them.
Fast money. Or if you live in a state that Amazon doesn't allow, your Amazon hubs become useless to you. Or if you are thrown out of the ebay or adsense program, your hubs then become useless.
If Massachusetts establishes an internet sales tax, I've got several identities that would go up for sale.
I would guess that an account would be worth about what it makes in a year.
It depends on the terms and conditions. Usually it's 10 times annual earnings. But this is a shared site with only 3 affiliate options - which will limit it. And if they buy the associated backlink strategy. And if there's a no compete clause for keywords and niches. The agreements can get complicated.
So 3x fish and a curry sandwich is a reasonable benchmark price for the OP?
What I love profoundly about HP forums lately?????

How Boring Success Is
Pleasant Dreams folks...
Hey, I laughed at it.
Though I did think the cost might still be too high, though I have no idea what a fish and curry sandwich is.
Hands one over to Pcunix - take a bite, it is only a few days old! lol
I don't think so, but thank you for your kind offer. I'm not big on fish (except salmon) and curry spice gives me a headache.
Ten times annual sounds far too high to me. No profit for ten years (assuming it even remains profitable)? I would never ask more than 5xannual for a website, and usually one or two--unless I thought the buyer was a sucker.
Never having sold an HP account, I don't really know.
But I sold a bunch of real estate niche sites geared at different US regions about a year before the whole thing crashed for annual earnings x 10. (Kept a few for a long-term investment, that sector will come back some day.)Depends on the feeding frenzy.
If I offered you a 10% return on your money, would you take it?
That is what buying something at ten times earnings is, assuming the earnings will stand up, of course.
Just ran some of your hubs through google and copyscape and it's copied and quite definitely duplicate stuff, so I'd say the account won't be worth a penny, now go and write some original hubs and stop talking out your botty!
Buyers care about revenues generated and not traffic - it's possible to get tons of traffic and not make a lot of money if a hub or site isn't designed and merchandized properly.
Although if you rank in the top 5 for terms and you're the competition they might just buy you out to control the SERPs. But that's infrequent.
I have never heard of this, it's such a strange idea
I think Mark Knowles'account would be awesome but it would cost alot! Maybe if he is dying he could leave it someone or sell it (not)
Yeeks! Hmm Eeek!
[Is it trick or treat time? Cuz this sounds dat a trick!! ]
You can try to sell a link on your profile if your score above 75..Just a suggestion
