If you have any side projects that you've built and that you no longer have time for, list them here and let's see if others want to buy it from you.
How long did it take you do build this?
Generates around $8k per year in Adsense and slowly rising. Plenty of potential to actually do something with it.
I wouldn't even think of selling it for less than $60k as it's an asset returning 13% on that amount.
People will say, "Yeah, but that's a ridiculous amount to ask." I agree, but where am I going to invest the proceeds that will return me that amount. This is a site that's consistently increased revenue for the past 7 years with close to zero hours of work.
If you offered me $40k tomorrow I'd say no. Because I'll make that in four years, and still have more to go.
Is Yelp not in those countries yet?
However, keep in mind that for $60k, a person can get a site doing $30k-$60k per year with as much work. That should be encouraging to you because it means there is an equivalent place to invest the proceeds of the sale of your site even though it also means you won't get $60k for an $8k per year website.
Also browsing through it I don't even see your ads?
http://onebucketlist.com/ - born out of a Startup Weekend India version - In50Hrs.
Twirl (http://www.twirlapp.com/) - It's a bookmarklet that gives you a recommended list of your contacts that may be interested in seeing the page you're currently on. I'm in the midst of improving the recommendation piece but I've been using it to share links with my friends. Django/Bootstrap/jQuery/MySQL
Gems of Craigslist (http://gemsofcl.com/) - The goal here is to scrape the Craigslist furniture listings and create a "Hot or Not" to find the best stuff. The scraper is out of date but should be pretty easy to update and also get other cities/categories. Django/Bootstrap/jQuery/MySQL
Wordsio (http://www.wordsio.com/ and http://words.io) - Just a way to play various word games to improve vocabulary. I've been meaning to do something else with this but just don't have that much time. The domain names might be more valuable than the site itself. Django/Bootstrap/jQuery/MySQL
Yet Another HN Reader (http://yahnr.com/) - This scrapes HN every 15 minutes and shows the top stories by points from the past 24 hours. The motivation was to be able to catch up on stories I may have missed and it's a simple Python script that writes to a static site on S3.
(Consists out of web app, iOS- and Android app.)
Or, better yet, charge lawyers, REO brokers, etc where there is a large pool of customers that will not be phased to pay you a reasonable amount monthly and give it away to schools for free.
Definitely come up with a better name. I'm not sure how it's supposed to be pronounced, which makes memorization and spelling even more difficult. Good Luck!
You can read about the project in an interview I did here:
I've been taking offers since the site was closed down. Nothing has been serious. A lot want me to partner with them and re-boot the site, but I'm not interested in that. A few are affiliate marketeers that want to split revenue etc... I'd rather just pass on the project to someone else now.
I guess what you'd be buying would be the brand, the domain name and all of the design assets. There is no real 'tech' to sell because the system was a one-off bootstapped bespoke build that would need a major re-factor but all the source code is there sitting on the server for anyone to acquire.
Right now it is configured to work only with the local government, and nothing more. There can be more done, for example, extending it to __other__ countries with a governmental firewall, but I have no time for it (since I'm running my own startup), etc. Send me an email if you are interested to know more. Email is in my profile.
I'm also thinking of selling this to companies like Grooveshark, Spotify, or a lyrics website. I really like the website myself and use it a lot, but it doesn't get a lot of traffic. It has some potential though, I'm quite sure of that, and if I ever continue serious development there'll also be an app. And yes, I know the design isn't very great, but it works for me for now.
If you have any interest, contact methods are on the website (see the "about" link at the bottom).
I'm wondering what the algorithm for this is - "Reddit" got me a rickroll, "4chan" got me a Pokemon/Belair mashup, "Hacker News" got me Lil Wayne.
...actually, you gave me an idea.
I never tested it with things like reddit, 4chan or HN. It's meant for lyrics, and I'm kind of like "random things are to be expected when you enter random things". It'll always have to be looked up on Youtube though, so it's not like you'll never see extreme things.
Lots of room for growth and expansion but I don't have the time to put into it. A few hundred questions have been asked over the last year and it's had a couple of traffic spikes but nothing serious.
If not interested in purchasing then I am looking for someone to work with me on the marketing/traffic building side of things and would happily offer a 50:50 split on ad revenues (or some other monetization strategy). I don't have any idea how to generate traffic for it so would be happy to work with someone.
Reply below if interested in either option.
I think this would be useful information for all the sellers to include, as many people reading here will be programmers.
I'm very interested in oneqstn.com - I'm in a position to dedicate effort to boost traffic/marketing. I have some experience in the survey/questionnaire field which would help and I have a suggestion for monetization that could improve upon ads. Let me know if interested, my email is in my profile.
E-mail me if you're interested, but keep in mind I've invested a good bit of time and capital in this thing. Offering me $100 isn't going to cut it.
In good times I made ~2.5k EUR/year with ads (mostly text links to boost other site's pagerank), but I lack the time and motivation to market it right now. It's zero maintenance.
I'm on the second page when you Google Crossword Puzzle Maker, but that only brings in about 10 visitors/day. Getting to the first page could bring some decent traffic.
The site works, but its features right now are pretty minimal.
With both businesses, the business name is the phone number and is also the website URL.
1-855-ZEN-MAIL currently has subscribers and a prospecting/lead gen strategy. They both come with pre-written sales scripts.
Roughly 30k active users, about 1 qps of live stream foursquare data. Not sure what to do with it, I'm not currently storing any of it.
The backend (in C) is pretty fast and stable (current uptime 384 days) and it can be used for other types of images (i.e. not icons but photos, covers, etc.).

Did you ever have an interest in djing?
Unfortunately my addiction to vinyl rules me out of what would likely be an expensive purchase. Best of kick with your sale.
My intent was to make it free to play, but given significant advantages to those willing to make a minimal $5 donation per month.
I've always wanted to finish it, but I never found enough volunteers to help.
SC solves 2 problems:
1- Saving time: When you search on Google/Yahoo, it gives lots of link. You gotta click one by one or pick one based on your intuition. It takes lots of time. Now Imagine you get same search result page but this time you get a hint by your friend to read it or NOT to read it. So if a search page has 10 unknown results, it makes you to spend time on 1/10 duration.
2- Trusted result: You are already getting quality links based on recommendation of friends/professional colleagues you trust hence increase chance of viewing something that pertain more to you.
Fun/silly website for Valentine's Day. Tells you who you love on Twitter. Gets about 500k pageviews/mth 100k visits/mth and spikes on Valentine's Day with coverage from the likes of Huffington Post and TNW.
50-70% of traffic is from Saudi Arabia, which is interesting.
Gets a tonne of tweets a day if you search for #twitamore
I figure it would make a good marketing campaign for a company on Valentine's Day 2014 if they wanted to theme it.
Devoired currently has very little activity due to lack of marketing. Let me know if you're interested!
Who would go near this as a business? Certainly unethical, possibly illegal?
The differentiating factor here is that we do not limit ourselves to just essays, and we crowdsource help rather than doing the work ourselves. There is also a fairly specific Terms of Service in place that puts the burden on the user.
It's a tech blog that was well maintained up until a year back but then I got focused on other projects and didn't get much time and energy to maintain it well.
It has good potential with a decent community vibe (one post itself has got more than 600 comments) if someone can keep it up with some good content. It generates a few thousand dollars a year in ads even though (a lot) more can be done to amp up that revenue in multitudes.
If someone is willing to take on a couple years old site with nice page ranks and keep up with it I'm open to sell it.
The developer base is growing, ~200 awesome rails developers have registered. Few companies have posted job offers, so it's also generating some revenue, but I'm loosing interest due to the less no of job offers - so basically I'm failing at marketing it to companies/startups.
The biggest problem right now is that there's little incentive to actually pay you, so it's essentially a directory. You're already telling me these developers are pre-approved, so I can assume they're pretty good. As they have personal websites and Github profiles links on most users, what's to prevent me from just going through and finding some I like, then reaching out to them to discuss?
If you want to make money, you may need to change the method a bit. Charge of access or make it hard to contact users on your own or have an explicit policy against this like Elance. $100 isn't much to people looking for Rails devs but there has to be at least $100 of perceived value in your service.
Then a couple domains:
Create android native mobile apps from your web browser instantly. (No HTML apps 100% native).
From prototyping (drag n drop) to a 100% working app
It's up for sale :)
Looking at your game on iTunes, it strikes me that you have a lot of bad reviews, so perhaps there are things to work on in your gameplay, before you start worrying if your competitors are cheating.
Also, looks to me like your game was downloaded by a lot of South Americans. Maybe if your game was more fun, or marketed better, in Europe and the US, there would have been more in-app-purchases. 250K downloads is worth different amounts in different places.
Not to say making an indie game isn't a hard journey, but to say you failed because everyone else cheats is self-defeating. You probably fail because you perceive no way to succeed.
Presentation deck about it, with most important info: https://speakerdeck.com/gargron/artists-and-clients-deck-may...
It's a marketplace for custom artwork. It has a lot of potential that I feel I don't have the time and business skills to realize.

Edit: Added direct link and e-mail.
The core of Proxy are it's filters and modifiers. Filters give you the ability to select specific requests/response pairs from the list of all of them, and modifiers make it possible to change the behavior and data a request/response pair carries. Modifiers are implemented in only a few lines and the idea was that they could be done in almost any language (read: ruby and other lightweight stuff), so the low-memory footprint along with simple, extensible filters would make a powerful developer tool – or the most configurable ad blocker that there is.
Umbrella.co.uk - domain
Wallet.co.uk - domain
Towel.co.uk - domain
If you're interested in any of these email me via my contact details at jetbootlabs.com and please demonstrate in your email that you're a serious buyer to get a reply.
Time has shown the majority of enquiries are domainer lowballers so I'm inclined to ignore most interested parties unless I'm convinced early on you're serious.
Then I receive responses saying, "Sorry I was looking for £10,000".
It really does help if people give an idea of the figure they're searching, even if just a lower-bound.
nodejs / backbone and lots of goodness
I also own www.tripoptimizer.com domain.
Let me know if interested.
Chefmixer is an online marketplace to find cooking classes, chefs, events and venues. We monetize by processing payments for event and class tickets.
Drop us a line if you have interest.
Like most of my side projects, I didn't have the time or the marketing skill to make it work.
E-mail is in my profile.
Technically it's a Ruby app I had deployed on Heroku; still own the domain and SSL certs for a year.

If you're still in school, like to teach CS concepts and have some time on your hand, you'll be able to grow the site and complement it with more modules while leveraging the already existent user base. Plus an opportunity to make some ad $ on the side.
Uses websockets for real time design review collaboration. I've spent the past 6 months working on it and got it in a very releasable state, unfortunately I don't have the time/expertise to get it out there.
Contact via email.
A platform for web shops build with Java and MongoDB. The frontend is Spanish but the backend is easily translatable (German already done) and multi-currency. I would sell the site or pair with somebody who knows how to market it.
Domain only: pushp.in - I have an offer for this so you'd need to be quick.
Recently finished, wasn't built to make money (affiliates seem like a good fit to monetize it). Am now moving on to other things.
Seeing as tho it doesn't make any money I'm willing to entertain all offers.

Think Bit.ly for bitcoin - although you can administer your Coinhandle address if your Bitcoin address ever changes.

It works like a charm but I don't have time to work on it.
BTW, I'm sure Marco Arment will have projects to sell if you ask him :P
I created the same thing a year ago. I underestimated the CPU load and number of pages on many sites (especially e-commerce sites). It doesn't take many crawls to quickly fill a db.

Heard of pegleg.it? Same idea, but the content is not crowd sourced.
