See below for the offer details, our price include domain + all its exclusive content with full and unlimited rights over it.
We've posted it in the "domain section" because the most relevant part of this offer is exactly the premium aged domain DIR.info

Our asking price was firstly of $50k then decreased to $35k , now we're at just $25k (negotiable)
Serious and reasonable offers would be considered.

We'd be also interested in exchanging it againt a LLL.com of your choice (you'd get all what we've described below incl. the additional free hosting).

Brokers are welcome too.

DIR.INFO - BIG PR5 SOCIAL SEARCHENGINE - DIRECT ACCESS TO UNLIMITED URLS, VIDEOS & IMAGES

DIR.info is a professional directory and "social searchengine" with over 4,200,000 indexed urls, 791,200 directories and many features to allow a direct interaction among its users.
It's a PR5 domain registered since August 2001 (never dropped since its first registration).
It has thousands of Google indexed pages and over 11,400 registered users.
Most of the content has been imported by free external directories few months ago while, actually, few dozens of new urls are added every day by its users.

Users can either search the database by entering a keyword or surfing directly through its big directory.
Users can also surf through billions of videos and images displayed directly on our pages, both the Youtube and Flickr APIs have been implemented.

Every time a query is submitted, a banner is displayed at the top of search results.
You can either use AdSense or display banners of your sponsor or affiliate programs.
There's also an adult filter: you can set an unlimited number of adult keywords that, if searched, will display a different banner or just no ad, it'sup to you.

All sections of the portal will show your banner, every time an user will submit a query, will look for images or videos.

The portal offers multiple monetization ways: you can display a banner at the top of all search results, add text ads to the email your users will get every time an url is approved, every time you reply to their inquiries and much more; for instance, a developer might easily implement a feature to allow bulk emailing (sending out newsletters) to all your registered users ... By studying carefully the portal and its features, you'll easily find many additional ways to make money by it.

It gets few thousands of monthly visitors but, considering we've never promoted nor followed this big portal, with a bit of promotion it might be easily turned into a big turnkey searchengine.

There're many other features that you can improve with the help of a developer (we can suggest many professional guys ready to do any requested change, at extremely low fees ($3/5 per hour) guaranteeing excellent and quick results.
Users can rate urls, report broken links, submit comments and much more ...

The portal is unique even if part of its content has been imported by multiple free external resources, this means you'll not find a similar searchengine actually online.
It's not using a CMS but much better, it's using a powerful user-friendly admin panel from whom you can edit/delete urls, approve/reject newly submitted urls, view/reply to your user feedbacks and requests directly online, view broken reports (every time someone will report a broken link by using the appropriate icon), view url comments (all comments your users will left to urls), administer search result ads, admin other minor settings (ie choosing if getting a notification by email every time new inquiries are submitted, new broken links reported etc ...).

Each user will get access to its own panel from where following the status of his submitted urls, change his personal details etc ...
There's also an admin demo panel so, if you should decide to hire someone to take care of your website, you can first show him the demo from where he can check all website features without doing any real change to the portal.

You can review all existing feature and studying some improvements, the website is actually a PR5 but it might easily upgrade to 6 and more if you'll work a bit on it with the assistance of a qualified developer.
There're other sections too: What's new (shows all newly approved urls), Most Popular (shows the most clicked urls) ...

RECAP: We're selling a big multi-functional social searchengine, you only need to work a bit on its promotion to see the first money to come into your pockets.
Anyone wishes to add its own url to a PR5 directory and this can be done for free here, all at your advantage: your portal will continue to grow in terms of content and popularity.

We've never promoted it but imagine the results once you'll start to announce it in all major social networks and forums ... add it to thousands of free directories and enjoy watching at a constantly growing ì number of daily visitors, active users and revenue.

So the question is: why are we selling it ?
We're domainers, our main activity is selling/buying/trading and renting quality domains, we've no real time/interest in starting new different ventures at this time but this portal has an huge potential so we'd like to sell it to someone who'll promote and keep it alive.

The asking price was originally of $50,000 then decreased to $35,000 while now we're at just $25,000 (a bit negotiable).

Should the portal be still unsold for the end of November, we're discussing a possible joint venture with an exterlal company who'll improve and take care of it on a rev-share basis.

Should you have any interest in making an offer, if a deal should happen, we'd use Escrow.com to setup the transaction (Escrow.com is the most reliable US authorized domain escrow service, fees at our own charge).

The whole portal will need to be hosted on a dedicated server (250/300Gb of web space will be enough).
We can either move it to your server (free of charge) or keeping it hosted on ours for few months or foverer (if requested).
The first 3 months of hosting would be an additional free gift after that we'd charge a very low fee to agree together.
