I want to make sure I understand this correctly and would like to hear of any personal experiences on this. Please bear in mind I know very little about flipping so dumb questions will be the order of the day. My understanding of flipping is basically you buy the website/domain cheap and sell it higher, is that right? What I'd really like to know is a) how to spot a good one and b) what you need to do to add value to a site. I don't ask for much. I've heard stories of people buying sites that are practically worthless, with fake stats given, etc. How do you protect yourself from being conned like that? For example, how would you be able to find out if a site's banned by Google apart from just taking the owner's word for it that it's not? I know there has to be a certain degree of trust between any buyer and seller but I'd hate to get stuck with a pig in a poke. It's an idea I'm tossing around just now as something I perhaps should be looking at but I want to go into it with my eyes open. I haven't any particular site in mind or anything right now. Another thing...should you look in different places depending on whether you want a site or a domain? And if you do buy a site/domain, how does the owner actually transfer it to you? Thanks in advance.
