If you read the first two articles in this series, you understand why website investing is one of the most important things you can do to ensure your financial future. And you also understand that investing in websites is one of the truly passive income streams available today.
But if you’re like most people, you have heard of the website investing scams that some people have fallen for. While it’s true that some shady people take advantage of people who want to jump on this opportunity, it’s also true that with a little due diligence, you can avoid those types of scams.
Here’s what you need to know.
Your Website Needs to Be Aged
Remember, when you invest in websites, your goal is to buy a website that has already been indexed with Google Why? Imagine these two scenarios:
Scenario #1: You purchase a URL that has been parked for a few years because the owner didn’t know what to do with it. Once you own the URL, you will have to jump through all kinds of hoops to get Google to know it’s alive. You’ll spend a lot of money and time doing this.
Scenario #2: You purchase a website that has been aged. That means the backend stuff has already happened and the site is on Google’s radar. All you have to do now is add fresh content to it on a regular basis to hold the search engine spider’s attention.
Why type of website would you rather buy?
One of the best ways to avoid web investing scams is to purchase websites that have already been aged.
Only Buy .Com Extensions
Another technique used by web investment scammers is that they try to sell you URLs with extensions other than .coms. The truth is that nothing performs like a .com — no matter how cleverly worded it is. Just think: when is the last time you visited a website with a .biz or .food extension? If you’re like most people, the answer is never.
Only deal with website investment professionals who sell.com websites. Anyone who tries to sell you other extensions is looking out for themselves and not your best interests.
You Need Affiliate Links
If someone tries you sell you a turnkey website investing package without the affiliate programs already in place, you should think twice. Without affiliate programs in place, you won’t be able to earn any income from the site.
And while it’s true that you can set them up yourself, it takes hours, if not days, to find the right ones.
That’s why our premium aged websites are already set up with profitable affiliates. But don’t worry—if you want to add your own, you can.
