Title: Unique Copyscape Passed Article Content
Description: With the increase in demand for unique articles, I have set up this blog post so that the regular buyers of my articles can get an update of what all articles I have available for sale.
Sample articles: http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Jimmy_Thakkar
Format: Below you will find the title / niche along with the price. Contact me to purchase the article pack of your choice. The articles that have been sold will be marked as “[SOLD]“.
I have two issues with Flippa.
The fees have gone up and the types of buyers and sellers on the site have gone worse.
1. I listed my site on flippa for sale and not only was I not able to sell the site or get a single bid; I hardly got any views on that auction.
My total listing views was 22. So if we calculate that my listing fee being $29 and I got 22 views out of it, the total amount I paid to flippa was $1.3 per view.
I am not saying that flippa is bad or anything but they should have a system where they can let a site re-list for no extra cost if that listing gets such pathetic views. They should also have a lower listing fee for smaller niche site.
I asked for a refund and I got the responder type message saying that cannot guarantee a sale and they cannot refund the amount.
Again, I have posted bad sites with worse headlines but never have I got that amount of views.
2. My second issue at flippa is that the buyers seem to get dumber and the sellers are getting smarter.
A) I have seen many listings which state they have made couple of thousand dollars in 2 weeks selling SEO and internet marketing services. What the seller would do is make a PayPal screenshot(fake) showing the earnings and the buyer would just fall for it and buy the website. Yes right. It is so very easy to earn thousands of dollars per week on the internet. This is past now as such listings have reduced on the website auction site.
B) This is towards 1 particular seller who just registers an expired domain puts up fake content on the site and starts selling a ridiculous site stating that it is a gold mine. Let me explain.
The seller would find a deleted domain online and register it. The seller would then make a back dated blog post on that site. This seems just stupid. It is like I register a domain today on 22nd October 2012 and then post on my that website an article on the site showing the date 22nd June 2009.
That is not all. The content that the seller is posting on the site is 100% copied from article sites but the post is made in a tactical way which would fool copyscape. Hence the seller can state that the site is unique and copyscape passed.
Fooling copyscape and posting content on site can be smart and blackhat and it is ok but posting on your auction listing that the articles are written by article writers from Canada and USA is just fooling the potential buyer.
When I happened to post in the comments area about this my comments were deleted. (Obviously if I was the seller I would do the same, but it is flippa’s moderator’s duty to undelete those comments).
NOTHING WAS DONE!
I then reported the auction to Flippa:
“What do you mean you are working with the seller ?
The seller is just fooling everyone and you are still allowing this ?
https://flippa.com/28…. (Link removed because I don’t hate the seller nor do I have anything personal against him) - See here, all my comments are also deleted by the seller. I showed everyone that the seller is just lying by saying he has paid article writers for the content when all content on the site is 100% copied.
I proved it in the comment and all the seller did was just delete my comment and then posted a copyscape image showing that content is unique and all that.
How many times are you get the seller get away with this ?
If it is cool with flippa to allow the seller to lie to their buyers then even i can start selling websites like this…“
Ok. I hoped that either the seller might be temporarily banned or my comments would be undeleted.
AGAIN NOTHING WAS DONE!
I waited for response from the “Flippa Customer Support” but nothing happened there.
A few days later my request was closed without any answer and all I could see was “You have no open requests”.
Seems like flippa is supporting the seller because they are earning through him. I hope that is not true because i reported a few listings in the past and they have taken care of that auction by rectifying false claims or by temporarily banning the seller.
Well, I just hope the buyers over there get smarter.
BLOG POST UPDATE – NOV 1, 2012
After i posted this entry i got an email from Flippa’s operation manager. You can read about our convo below. Not only did i get a credit so i can re-list my site, i also got advice on how i can get more views. It shows they care !
My reply below in bold.From: Flippa(hidden)Sent: Wednesday, October 24, 2012 11:11 AMTo: Me(hidden)Subject: Re: Follow up to concerns outlined at http://www.jimmythakkar.com/blog/is-flippa-getting-worseThanks Ashish.Responses below. Hope that helps. Do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or are not satisfied with the outcome.Regards,AndrewOn 23/10/2012, at 6:20 PM, Ashish H Thakkar (JVW) wrote:1. Auction that did not get views: (hidden)Competition for attracting buyer to start-up sites is becoming increasingly competitive. To this end, its worth ensuring you’ve done all you can with your title and domain to attract potential buyers to your listing page (and get that views number up!).Two ideas that spring to mind if you were to relist:1. Camel-case your domain so users know what it means to say. ie (hidden)2. Make your listing title highlight your core value proposition eg (hidden)I’ve added 15 credits to your account so you can relist at no cost to see if these changes make a difference.Thank you for this. I will re-list using the tips you have given me and see what difference it makes. Do you think the heading is the only reason I got such low views?2a. Listing where my comments were deleted: (hidden)The seller has left your comments with concerns about the content uniqueness and responded to them. While he did remove some of your subsequent posts, potential buyers are sufficiently informed if that is a problem for them. More concerning is the claims around the domain age (ie higher risk of PR drop) and the extrapolated monthly traffic claims off a limited time-window. We’ve since removed the latter from the seller’s remaining listings: (hidden)I do not understand your comment. People are paying for such sites because of valuable content on the site. This is what the seller commented “I personally did not write the articles.
I pay a team of writers I have in US and Canada“But the content on the site is junk. I proved out there that they are not original articles. They are just copied articles from the web. Copyscape is not the only plagiarism checker out there you know.How can a seller be allowed to make false claims?Anyways I will keep reporting auctions which I feel are wrong.2b. Support request: (hidden)This was a major oversight on our part. We’re not in the business of simply shutting down tickets without a response and I apologise unreservedly for that outcome. I’ll be reminding the team on this again as a result of your experience here.Thank you for your time. Do I have the permission to copy paste content from the email on my blog?Regards,ThakkarFrom: Flippa(hidden)Sent: Tuesday, October 23, 2012 4:25 AMTo: Me(hidden)Subject: Follow up to concerns outlined at http://www.jimmythakkar.com/blog/is-flippa-getting-worseHi Jimmy.Sorry to hear your experience with Flippa was anything short of stellar. I’d love to get some more information to see what we can address the two key points you raised in your post at http://www.jimmythakkar.com/blog/is-flippa-getting-worseFirstly, are you able to let me know ID or URL of the auction that you felt did not receive sufficient exposure?On the second point, would you be able to send me the support ticket ID regarding the issues you raised (and maybe even the auction where you left the comment). I look after the support team and it sounds like we may have possibly missed a few things here.Any information you provide on this will be very helpful in addressing your concerns.Thanks,(hidden)

My name is Jimmy Thakkar and my friends both online and offline label me as search engine optimization guru.
I have worked in a search engine optimization company and on hundreds of sites over the years and have had clients from all over the world.
I have written this article up to teach my general audience and the Webmasters about the whole Search engine optimization process and the ways in which they can take care of their websites when it comes to optimizing their sites for the search engines.
In this article and on this blog site you will be able to learn many things about search engine optimization training, economical seo, various search engine optimization terms, how you can plan about your seo, search engine optimization marketing, seo ranking and much much more…
What’s more ?
In earlier days of the internet there was no search engine optimization. You just fill in your meta tags with your keywords and expect to find you site in the rankings. This is not the case now. With the growth in the online business and so many sites coming up daily the competition to get top rankings in the search engines has never been more.
It is essential that you optimize your site always keeping in mind the rankings you wish to obtain on search engines and the keyword(s) you would want your site to rank for.
Some people say optimizing for search engine rankings is highly over rated but i say how can anyone even say something like that :
With higher search engine rankings your chances of sales increase more because if your site is not ranking well then how will anyone visit your site and if anyone is not visiting your site how will your site sell ?
It is true that you should always optimize for the audience and your website visitors but you should always have search engines in your mind when designing a website or writing and article !
Where to rank ?
Rankings are important but do not run after rankings that you will never be able to achieve. For example if your site is about weight loss then it would be best if you target something like weight loss [your city name] or weight loss [your country here] rather than a very competitive word like ‘weight loss’.
Also do a bit of research on sites like word tracker as to what keywords you would like to target as targeting an exact keyword like ‘weight loss tips and ideas and techniques that will get you fit in 251 days’ will not help you much
It is very important that you work on your strategy for search engine optimization before you start doing any kind of search engine optimization for your site.
There are various factors you have to think about in your strategy for search engine optimization :
After it is over :
It is best to leave your search engine optimization to a professional. An expert in the field of search engine optimization knows his job top to bottom.
Why you should always hand your search engine optimization task to a professional :
1. He has done such a work in the past and would be able to help you better than a novice.
2. He knows the tricks of the trade to get your site optimized in a better way.
3. A professional knows how to get better ranking for you in the fastest possible time.
4. A professional will not leave you half way down the line if the original plan for your website ranking did not happen. He will help you get top ranking as discussed with you earlier.
5. Has his own search engine optimization products, tools , softwares and scripts to help you optimize your site in a better way.
6. Has his own staff to work on the websites.
7. A professional will work on your site in a systematic manner compared to a novice who will not do full justice to your site.
Professional search engine optimization process would include :
How do you define economical search engine optimization ?
Do you think economical SEO is something which can be termed as cheap seo ? I certainly do not think so. Nowadays there are many Search engine optimization experts coming from nowhere who promise you economical search engine optimization but what they really mean is that we shall provide you cheap search engine optimization service. Economical search engine optimization is something which is made up of a combination of factors :
Some top companies that offer economical Search engine optimization services are :
(See Google.com or Bing.com for more results)
Places where you can get Economical search engine optimization services are :
1. Forums : Many experts offer their services through forum sites. You can pick an expert which is well reputed in the seo field and has good feedback given to him by other forum members.
2. Freelance sites : Make sure you pick a company or a freelancer which has done similar work in the past and has good reviews and ratings for the work done.
Many people get confused when the gurus/professional mix up their words on the website. The general public get confused between Seo, SEM, Seo marketing, SEO promotion.
Then they come up with a question saying how can I do seo optimization for my site ?
Please note that Search engine promotion would include Search engine optimization(SEO) which is generally “on page” and search engine marketing(SEM) which is generally “off page” + Pay per click advertising.
We have already discussed search engine optimization(SEO) on previous pages so we will see here what exactly is search engine marketing :
Search engine marketing is the next step in search engine promotion after the search engine optimization is done.
Search engine marketing involves many things some of which are :
1. Website submission – Submission of your website to major search engines and other small search engines.
2. Blog and rss submission – Promotion of your blog by submitting comments on related blog sites and rss directories.
3. Forum promotion – Marketing on forum, offering services and products on forum is a good idea. You can get link value also through signatures in some of the forums.
4. Pay per click – Pay per click or PPC is a quick way to get traffic. Popular players in this category are Google Adwords and Exactseek.
5. Email marketing – The oldest way of marketing online is email marketing. Make sure you do that properly and to your list or you might get blacklisted by spam blocking sites.
6. Directory submission – This is a very popular method which will help you get good link value. Getting listed on Dmoz and Yahoo directory is the best thing when it comes to directory submission.
7. Article marketing – Article writing and submitting to article directories. Make sure you use your signature well. Popular website to submit your article is to ezinearticles.com.
Proper Search engine optimization training is essential before you work on any of your sites or any of your client’s site. Without Search engine optimization training you will not be confident enough to work on optimizing the websites alone.
There are many sites that offer search engine optimization and training along with search engine optimization certification nowadays. Some of these companies are :
How to go about search engine optimization training ?
You can choose any of the below for getting trained for SEO :
1. Choose a mentor – This is very easy. Just search and choose for yourself a mentor. You can find one on a forum. Follow what he has to teach to you. Check every post that he makes about search engine optimization along with his blog and articles he write. Asking your mentor intelligent questions about search engine optimization is a good thing but do not just keep him busy with your 100 questions daily or there are chance you might end up on his block list
2. Please check the above links for the institute(s). These sites will train you thoroughly like a proper institute and then give you a certification at the end of it on the basis of how well you did the course.
3. By Yourself – Though this might not be the best way to learn search engine optimization but the abundance of knowledge and information available on the seo sites can give you a good head start. You then have to dig deeper on various information portals, forums and other places. There is a high possibility that your problem or question on search engine optimization is already been asked somewhere and been solved by someone on some forum or info portal site. You can also take the help of sites like Yahoo Answers to find more information.
This is an essential aspect of search engine optimization. Many people do the search engine optimization reports after they have finished with the search engine optimization. This is not correct. You should start doing the search engine optimization reporting from the beginning itself.
The report of the site will include :
With help of reports you can check which efforts of yours have been fruitful so that you can repeat those things on other pages or other sites of yours or your friends/client’s site. Make sure when you make the search engine optimization reports it is not just for 1 search engine that is Google. Check your performance on other search engines as well because it might happen that you are getting higher on one of the search engines but loosing your rankings on other major search engines.
Why Seo reports ?
1. Reports show the status of your work done. If you gained popularity then you should continue with your seo efforts and if you keep falling down in popularity then it is best that you stop or change your seo practice for which the traffic is going down.
2. Reports are also important in holding the Seo team accountable.
3. For analysts – If you are looking for Joint ventures, Venture capitalists or wish to sell the site even then the reports with come in handy. Here however stats from Google analytics and awstats will be more important.
4. If you run an SEO firm then it is mandatory to have such reports which you can show to client on a weekly or monthly basis as decided by both the parties at the start of the contract.

What is a domain name?
A domain name tells computers where to find your webpage on the internet. Each domain name is assigned to a numerical IP (internet protocol) address by your host provider. A domain name translates this number into words.
How do I register a domain name?
The first step is to find out if the domain name you want to use is available. The best way to do this is by using a “whois” utility feature that can be found on any domain registrars website. (Go to whois.sc to check out a domain name you are considering.)
Once you have decided on a domain name that is available, the next step is to register it. I personally recommend using the Godaddy or Name.com websites for registering your domain name. They make the process very simple — just fill in the form with your information and submit it and you are finished.
