    A few weeks ago I was looking into buying a domain from a competitor that had closed up shop. On the surface it looked great–a ton of inbound links and a well-trusted website. But when I started digging I realized they had actually blown up a large portion of their site (including the blog) which amounted in thousands of 404 errors. What’s worse is a huge chunk of the site had also been deindexed. In the end I had to pass because it just was going to be too much work to reap any value from that domain.

    Great overview! would have like to see how you see site structure, a clients site is getting hit and their structure is bad and I would like to see visually the link structure. Your post was very informative.
    Thanks.

    Thanks Eric,

    I’m on the flip side and getting ready to sell a major affiliate marketing destination site I’ve owned for over 10 years. This gave me food for thought about the types of things I need to cover in the info I’m putting together to sell it. Good stuff!

    I would include looking up the domain name history (how many changes have been made over the years, who owned it) and how long until it expires.

    Linda – great point. Alternatively the title could be “How to Maximize the Sale Price of Your Website”… ie cover these things. Good checklist here.
