About the Owner
Hardip is an experienced blogger and owner of multiple blogging websites from Ahmedabad, India. As a part time endeavour he acts as the co-owner of a web designing agency, Loyal Web Solutions – a completely different industry to techbylws.com.
Hardip has a passion for writing and has been blogging and running profitable websites in different niches for the past 5 years.
Reason for Selling:
The owner wants to sell the site to raise funds to invest in his business Loyal Web Solutions.
The site was built from scratch on the WordPress platform in June 2017. The primary focus of the site is to provide informative how-to content based on technology topics. Since it has gone live the owner published over 450+ original posts that are rich in keywords and other optimization (meta descriptions, internal linking, images, etc.). Techbylws.com receives many sponsored post requests, but only quality content from authority websites are accepted (in the last 12 months only 2 sponsored posts have been accepted).
All backlinks are 100% naturally built and can certainly be improved under new ownership.
Hardip is the sole owner of the site and has built it to generate passive income through Google Adsense. He has recently started to monetize with Amazon, but it’s still in early stages and hasn’t earned anything yet. There are many marketing streams that are still untouched like social media and email subscriptions, making this an established site with great possibilities.
There have been no legal issues connected to this site.
Income and Monetisation
The primary source of income is mainly from Google Adsense. Total profit over the last 12 months is $3,646.21. March 2020 marked the most profitable month for Techbylws.com with a total profit of $1,076.95. This was because one article had a huge spike in traffic due to increased rankings.
There were 2 sponsored posts added to the site in the last 6 months. One in July, and the other in January, for $40-$45 each. This is something that can be easily ramped up to generate more income.
With Adsense being the main source of income, there are lots of other opportunities to diversify this income, like Affiliate promotions, sponsored posts or by simply upgrading to Ezoic to boost the existing Adsense revenue.
The Page RPM has come down quite a bit lately. In April, it was sitting at $46.27 and in July, it dropped to $24.04. The person to figure out why this has happened and turn it around can quickly improve the revenue.
Revenue for August 1st to 19th has been recorded in the Profit and Loss, and is predicted to make ~$150/m
Over the course of the other months, income is still profitable if a bit inconsistent. This is mainly due to the search engine ranking fluctuations as new articles get added. With March setting a standard, it is great to know the potential of high income when targeting the right topics.
Proof of all revenue sources can be found in the attachments of the listing (above the comments section)
Hosting: $2.50 p/month
Domain: $1.00 p/month
Content: The current owner created all the site’s content, the new owner can outsource content writing.
Other expenses including domain purchase, hosting, NS change, WordPress theme and other minor changes were all covered by the current owner at the beginning of the site.
With the expenses of this website being so low, it has proven to be a great opportunity for passive income.
Website Maintenance & Time Requirement
Currently, the owner spends 10-12 hours per week on the site. His responsibilities include:
Ensure hosting and domain is paid
Ideally, the current owners should have basic WordPress knowledge. Content can be outsourced.
Marketing and SEO
The current owner hasn’t invested in any Marketing or SEO strategies (apart from doing basic meta descriptions, internal linking and Keyword research), leaving an open untouched field for the new owner with great branding and advertising opportunities. It is clear that the established site can engage a greater audience when a bit more specialized focus is put on optimization.
Marketing on this site is a huge platform that has not yet been tapped into. If the new owner creates social media accounts, SEO strategies, and email advertising the site can generate even more traffic and income.
The niche is evergreen and not limited to seasons. Because tech products and apps are consistently evolving and growing, so does the site.
The main traffic sources are:
Organic (average of 4,336 p/month)
Referrers (average of 575 p/month)
Direct (average of 524 p/month)
Social (average of 212 p/month)
6%-8% of visitors are returning customers.
Top countries visiting the site are:
Drastic spikes in traffic occurred in March 2020 with a great jump from February’s 5,395 to an all time high of 14,690. This was due to an article ranking high and attracting much more visitors. Traffic is consistent throughout all other months. Other spikes and drops are usually because of topic trends and keyword rankings.
Guest access to the Google analytics can be given upon request via Private message.
Opportunities for Growth
There is a huge opportunity for further growth. If the new owner spends time in SEO optimization and marketing strategies, then income can improve drastically.
Apart from SEO optimization and marketing, here are a few other suggestions that can increase income and traffic to the site:

Re-design theme of site to be more appealing
