Upcoming Interview with Johns Wu, creator of Bankaholic.com

bankaholic-logoNext week I will have the pleasure of having as a guest on Domain Names Podcast, Johns Wu the original owner / creator of www.Bankaholic.com. For those of you who have been living in a cave without internet for the past 9 months, Johns sold www.Bankaholic.com to www.BankRate.com for a reported US$15 Million dollars after only a few years of the site being created (in WordPress by the way). Nice going Johns!

If you have any questions you would like me to ask Johns in the interview then please email me ed(@)ozdomainer.com or make a comment on this post. Cheers Ed

    That will be a great interview I’m sure.

    I would like to ask Johns Wu what the most important factors are for adding value to a website. Is it targeted traffic, usability, sheer quantity of traffic, unique features, backlinks? What makes a site worth large sums of money?

    A couple of questions for Johns Wu:

    If you’re permitted to disclose the information – What multiple of existing gross revenue was used in the valuation?

    Did the buyer seek you out or were you actively seeking a purchaser?

    And congratulations Johns in achieving the great success with the blog.

    I’m looking forward to the interview.

    Questions for Johns:

    What revenue number did Bankaholic.com generate from credit card affiliate commissions on a monthly basis before the acquisition?

    And which credit card affiliate network was the easiest to work with? – Primarily in support!
