Want to get bloggers “buzzing”? Sell your blog for big bucks. That’s what happened when John Wu sold his Bankaholic blog to Bankrate for a cool $15 Million.
Cath Lawson did the math and the 26 month old blog netted that blogger a cool $3348 per hour.
If you’ve been blogging for more than a few months, you may be wondering what makes the Bankaholic blog worth so much money. After all, the blog doesn’t get NEARLY the number of comments that Cath’s blog gets. There’s very little “community” on the blog – unlike on Cath’s blog, yet it’s raking in a record setting payday for the blog’s developer.
The key to the Bankaholic’s success is simple: KEYWORDS. The Bankaholic’s blog expertly targets the right keywords – the keywords a mega-site like Bankrate wants. If you’ve run a PPC campaign lately, you’ll see where the $15 Million dollar price tag for a blog that ranks well on highly sought after keywords might actually be considered a BARGAIN!
I love it when people “do the math”. SEO Diva did the math and showed how a $20,000 domain name can be a BARGAIN in the end.
The Bankaholic blog sale happened just as I was in the middle of doing a review for one of my 8 Week Power Blog Launch customers. Turns out, people want to fix their blogs in 30 minutes or less, not 8 weeks. (Mock Horror and Surprise!). So, as I was in the middle of creating this “Fast Blog Fix” report, the Bankaholic sale was announced. I put my 30 Minute system to the test and applied the principles to the Bankaholic blog. The results are revealed in “Fast Track to Blog Success”.
