    Hello Friends,

    I have a web directory site from last 5+ years but I never give proper time on this site. So I am thinking to sell out this. But I need your valuable suggestions that should I sell out this site or not and how much money I should hope to get? Web directory details are as given below:

    URL: http://excellentwebdirectory.com/
    Domain Age: 5 Years, 8 Months
    Script: PHP Link Directory (link back retained) - $25
    Google Page Rank: 2
    Unique Visitors: 15,518 October 2013, according to AWSTATS
    SEMrush
    Please let me know if need more details.

    Thanks in advance.
    -Ajit

    Thanks Rofac for your response,

    Last year only 2 premium links, current year 1 link, Adsense earning is very low around $2-5 monthly, very low earning because I am not serious for this site.

    The value in a directory is the database and you don't really have one so the value is zero. A directory without a database is just a script and not really a directory.

    Thanks to all for your time.

    I wanted to let you know that my site data base have 2,777 active ( free) links links and approx 46,000 registered users, I am not sure how many are genuine/verified E-mail. The PHPLD scripts cots $25 also.

    anyway, I am not going to offer these things for free :)

    Thanks again to all of you.

    A good database runs 30 to 50+thousand quality human edited submissions, 2,777 is a joke! I don't open a directory unless it has at least 5,000 sites in it.

    If you will take your site a bit in serious and bring the adsense traffic to $50 per month you can get up to $600 for it.

    At this moment i can only recommend you to post ads in the action areas of the site (under or above submission forms). Try to copy the design of the buttons of the certain ads....to match with your website. I know is not fair regarding to users....but it's fair regarding to your pocket :)

    In the meantime try to get a higher authority of the site. Maybe you can get some premium links too.

    A tip for you....i will never submit a link to a directory which don't have a decent logo at-least or a somehow customized design.

    Hope it helps.

    Probably the first question people will ask is "How much have you made with the directory recently?". Then they will want proof of payments and traffic. Make sure you have a good answer. You can always try offering it on Flippa with a Reserve price.

    Do you approve links with out edited! In ( Computers_and_Internet/?p=20 page 2 )
    3 links same description and title ( complete guide for everyone )
    that's why part of directories are spam now and not giving good opportunity to pass the
    storm.
