    - Is going local the intra-cardiac adrenalin injection to reverse the death rattle of domaining? It could be, if you play the game right. But there are some pitfalls to watch out for, and some "elegant" tactics that might still work until the big G catches up with you.

    - Websites were bought and sold BF (before Flippa) all the time, but we often forget that such a time existed. This thread harkens back to yesteryear with solid tips and information that stand the test of time. If you want to find the good sites, you need to look for them. Find them before they hit the open market and before your competitors drive up the price.

    Very first questions to ask when buying a site? First considerations?

    - Lao-tzu, founder of Taoism and possibly the world's first website buyer (he hated website flippers by the way), said it best when he said "The longest journey begins with a single step". So what is that first step when it comes to buying a site? This thread discusses the first questions you need to ask a seller, and more importantly yourself, before buying a site.

    Flippa Deadbeat Bidders: How to Sell Second Time (VIP Lounge)
    - http://experienced-people.net/forums...hread.php/5282
    - Flippa, the land of lollipops and rainbows, where civility and professionalism reign and buyers never back out of deals. OK, let's get real here, buyers pull out more often than teenagers on prom night. So what happens when they do? What recourse do you have? How do you turn that frown upside down? Read this thread for tips on how to do that Charlie Brown.

    Where's the best place to outsource article writing?
    - http://experienced-people.net/forums...hread.php/5269
    - The 4 hour work week? Pretty fantastic according to Tim Ferris (Bueller? Bueller?), and pretty unachievable for most of us but maybe we can knock the 50 hour work week down to a more manageable 20 or so through the use of outsourcing. This thread discusses the best place to outsource article writing and some of the pitfalls therein.

    Now too many Ads get you penalized by Google

    - "You bring your knees in tight. But it's the pelvic thrust that really drives you insane. Let's do the time-warp again. Let's do the time-warp again." Keep on dancing to Google's constantly changing version of what is good and what is bad. Google recently announced a change that would punish sites that have too many ads above the fold (except for Google itself of course).

    Is buying a business simply buying a job?
    - http://experienced-people.net/forums...hread.php/4762
    - Discussion on whether buying a business is the equivalent of buying a job and whether that is a good thing or a bad thing. Richard Parker himself drops by to give the boss man Clinton a good beat-down about a few statements that he makes. The WWE ain't got nothing on EP.

    FYI

    The post count for access to the VIP Lounge was temporarily lowered from 50 to increase participation. If you had access once but don't anymore, you've probably dropped below the minimum post threshold. This has been raised from 20 to 30, and will be moving back to 50, to restrict this material to genuine community members rather than those who lurk. If your post count is currently below 50, you may want to participate with useful posts to keep access to the goodies behind the curtain.
