Well, I started to post what I found, then thought that might not be very considerate towards Todd.  I have a free membership (although I'm thinking of going Platinum just to be able to block *some* people) and even though it doesn't cost me any money, I'd really hate to lose my account by making the webmaster angry at me.  I'd rather lose my Facebook, IMDb or YouTube accounts than this one.

I won't post the sites, but anyone can find them;  just type "Website worth" into any search engine.  Wink

      I recently got my own domain name for my blog and wanted to see if it was still worth "something".  Before, it had been estimated by different sites to be worth a few hundred dollars to over a thousand.  I checked at one of the websites after I had checked this one and it said it was worth.....

      $1

      That's about right. <grin>

        Don't worry, those sites are just for show, and don't accurately reflect anything.  They are fun to look at if you have a hobby site, but that's about it.  For example, most of them value Google.com and Facebook.com at about $1 billion.  Does anyone really think either Google.com or Facebook.com are only worth $1 billion?  Heck, Mark Zuckerburg personally has much more than that just in Facebook stock.

        Those "website worth" sites don't look at the cost of buying a business -- just some value they assign to a website domain name based on wide assumptions of advertising revenue and traffic volume.  It's kind of silly.

          From what I understand sites worth are based on estimated ad revenue website rankings, amount of users per quarter and naming algorithms....Cheers

          You have been weighed, you have been measured, and you have been found wanting. In what world could you possibly beat me?Patriot

            There are sites that estimate a website's value;  I just checked three of them and the results were ...well, I won't reveal the estimated daily earnings, but you can find that easily enough. (they're estimates, and the only people who know how much this site really earns are Todd, whoever he has confided in and the  *&^%$#* IRS) I certainly can't speak for Todd, but if I owned this site and was offered ten million, I'd jump on in in a heartbeat.  I can't put a dollar value on its worth to me, but it's a valuable and reliable resource.

            My pathetic excuse for a blog isn't monetized, but the last time I checked,  it's worth from $100- 1,000 and a traffic rank of 8 million+.  I wouldn't sell it f/ a hundred bucks (it's a fairly cheap hobby for me), but if I was offered a thousand, I'd take it.

            I agree. We would not be privy to tax returns, licensing deals, advertising revenue, etc. so those websites are more toys than reality and are meaningless. But I would guess somewhere between $ 2.5 and $ 4.5 million...just a random guess.

              Exactly!  This site was valued at anywhere from 60k to over a million!  I also found estimates on daily earnings from 60+ bucks to over a thousand. Like I've always said about this sort of thing: it's nobody's business because it's not their business.

              Kind of silly, yes.  That's why I had posts in my blog about what it was worth and how much it varied.  I even had one of the "badges" some of them offer ; I put it in a column next to the posts column...it said "My website is worth $27" and I had a doofus come in and ask me what I was bragging about.  I told him to go look up "self-deprecating humor".

              As you say, there's lots more to a worth of a business.  If you were selling a brick and mortar store, the price usually wouldn't just be the cost of the building and inventory, not unless you were desperate to sell.  Loads of other factors, annual income, future income projection, location, customer base, potential for growth and the proverbial "blue sky".   All of that can be extrapolated to a website's worth.  I don't care what your site is worth, it's valuable to me and I wish you the best b/c I want to keep visiting and using it.  Thanks f/ the reply.
