    I've been running this site for about two years now:
    http://www.ford-forums.com

    Total Unique Sites 11942
    Total Unique URLs 112
    Total Unique Referrers 481
    Total Unique User Agents 1167

    I'm looking to sell it since I want to focus on about 5 projects instead of the 20 that I have....

    I was thinking it could be worth 10k, but what do you think I should be asking for an automotive forum with about 1650+ members.....?

    Offers excepted, but really targeting honest opinions on the value... :)

    seems a little steep to me Clasione. ~7,100 page views (of which many are likely to be bots) doesn't seem to come anywhere near that price tag. But, if you are a blue oval man (or woman) than maybe it is :)

    Looking for honest opinions.... I'm not worried about being told just what your saying.... The more opinions, the better I can feel about setting a pricetag.... I just don't want to undercut myself if I do sell.... ;)

    Honest opinion, 5 daily posts - Forum sounds like its pretty much dead. 42 pages indexed in google, not really any value to use in the Coop network. I would pay no more than $400.

    Yea, if it was coop-able, it would be worth much more.... I'm not even sure if ezboard data is exportable???

    Main good thing about the ezboard is that it keeps text links on a seperate IP block...

    Clasione, I hope you get 10k for it. I was just trying to say that the stats don't support that price tag...not even close. But, many things go for more than they should in this world. I wish you luck.

    Is there no ezboard/phpbb coversion, then you can use all the pages from the forum under the domain - should give approximately 30k weight? Might entice a few more bidders.

    If it was vBulletin, you might be able to get around $1000. If you had some strong earning figures, over the period of months, you might be able to get more based on earnings. For a sale in the five figure range, you should be prepared to prove earnings of at the bare minimum $500 a month.

    Yeh,
    I would say the type of forum lets it down.

    php or invision I would be interested.

    If you decide to keep it, I'd recommend you convert over to vBulletin. I bet that your forums would grow faster with vBulletin than with what you have now.
