I have been recently thinking about those webmasters who buy someone else�s blog, and continue this person�s work. I know that some bloggers are thinking about selling their website, although there is a large group of people who are not even considering it. I must admit that it sounds very tempting to buy a blog even though the price of it might be high, but there are also some problems. There are a lot of factors that have to be taken into consideration. It definitely takes a lot of time to obtain high rankings and a large number of visitors. That is because marketing will be required, as well as investing a lot of your time. That is why some argue that it would be great to buy a blog with already existing traffic. However, setting up a successful blog from the scratch has its advantages, as and often gives more satisfaction in the long run. You will also be able to shape in from the beginning, so it might be easier to achieve what you have in mind, as you will have total control over it. How do you know if the current visitors will actually keep visiting the site once they discover you are not the founder of the blog?
