Google to buy Digg for $200 Million

According to a report by TechCrunch, it appears Google is set to purchase Digg.com for $200 Million.

Google has scooped up sites like this before, such as YouTube and FeedBurner and I’m sure they’ll be looking at many more in the future.

How can you cash-in by selling your website?

You may not have a website that Google is interested in, but you may have one that someone else may want to buy.

If you are to create a site, your number one goal should be the intention to sell your website in the future. Of course not all websites are going to be worth $200 Million, but there are many people creating websites and then selling them for nice profits. Others buy websites from others, fix them up and then flip them for a profit. Some sell for a few thousand dollars, while others may sell for tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars.

What your website is worth will depend on a number of factors. How much it makes per month? How old is the website? What is the page rank? How much traffic does your website get? Is your domain easy to remember? Is your domain a .com, .net or another TLD. .COM domain names tend to be worth more. These and other factors can determine how much your website and domain name is worth.

You can make money by creating and selling websites or buying and selling websites if you put the effort into it.

    I think that is a great result for the owners of digg. But has google monetized any of its purchases. I am still waiting to see a profitable youtube.

    Tom, YouTube has been serving Google ads for quite some time. As for how profitable it’s been, I don’t know, but it should be bringing in a good deal of revenue.

    As for the Digg deal, as I just posted it fell through.

    Its also not usable. Unless you want to read his whole pitch I can’t find anything. I’ve looked twice for the demo and still can’t find it.

    In any case, we’ve been round the houses on this one before. During the last “Google buys Digg” inflammation.
