Is this site worth it?

I have an opportunity to buy a fansite for $50. (I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post the url here or not so I won't) The average hits per day is about 475 and when you search on google for this certain celebrities fansites it is the first site to come up. Do you think I would be able to earn a substantial amount of money with this site or should I just forget it?

Buy, buy, buy!

Seriously, any site with any kind of traffic will make that money back on Adsense or similar in little time.

Wait a minute.

Go check other sites like yours, and try to find what kind of ads are being served. Do they look like a good match for your proposed aquisition?

$50 is awfully cheap. What's wrong with the deal?

Yep the ads are a pretty good match. I'm actually the webmaster of the site, I just don't own it so I can't put my own ads up. I'm thinking the owner is just giving it to me for cheap because I already run the site and she's never sold a site before so maybe she doesn't really know what it's worth?

LOL well if somebody else thinks it'll bring in some money then maybe I should take it.

In my opinion, with about 500 pageviews a day for a fansite you should be able to bring at least USD 500 a year with adsense, if the site and ads are correctly optimized.

I had once a site about a film project.

I stoped the page, nearly no income.

Only 8% of the eCPM what is average on my sites.

I'd say forget it, and then send me the contacts of the person you were dealing with :)

hits matter but not all the time. you're the webmaster of the site so you must know the estimated cpc of the ads you're getting on that fansite. say you get 500 hits a day and a fair amount of clicks, everything will depend upon the price of ads you're getting. i suggest you buy the site anyways coz 50 bucks is never a big money and you can improve the site a lot to earn more from it later.
best of luck.
