    Hello

    I think that's a good forum on this question.

    How do you think?
    How much is my directory worth EuropeShops.net?

    Domain is 7 years old.
    Script is pro version.
    Great domain name.

    This is my statistic:

    [​IMG]

    This site show me $1200.
    This site show me $538.


    How do you think?

    Thank you for replies.

    Even though the domain is that age, the domain has not been a directory for that long, also looks like the domain maybe wasn't used for 2 or 3 years?

    Theres only 42 listings in it, the visits amount is not especially high.

    I wouldn't trust any "how much is this site worth" types of sites, they are meant for entertainment purposes only, otherwise we would all be minted. ;)

    In the current directory business situation, i dunno, maybe a $100 - $200, maybe less as its cheaper to just buy a new domain and script.

    If it was a directory for the whole age of the domain then i think that would be a different story.

    Does this mean only shops or only european shops?

    No significant traffic and no database means it worth absolutely nothing considering the market is flooded with directory scripts with no databases or traffic.

    ^^ What he said.

    Someone could go make a directory like that themselves easily. Less than $100 value.

    About the only thing to add to what Stoner said is that personally I would create a directory myself before purchasing this one for any amount because I would not put up a serious directory on a .net domain.... Just my opinion.

    Agreed. If you had an income stream with the directory, then thats different.

    Your directory is worth 1 month's income x 12 months.

    - Websites are typically valued at Monthly Earnings x 10, so that is what you should expect your Directory to be worth.

    I do maintain a network of directories with different scripts and they do require lot of time to keep the directories clean and regular approval to make directory worth

    TLD matters to me and many of the people I chat with privately. But I can see you may value other things more or differently. That is your prerogative.

    Regardless, You did quote where I said just my opinion. :rolleyes:

    I quoted the part I didn't agree with.
    I understand that's your opinion that's why I was just asking for explanation.
    2 of the top directories dmoz.org and botw.org do use the .org tld even though they have the .com
    google and yahoo directories are even hosted in subdomains, ...
    So what I mean is the URL does not matter to judge the quality of a directory.

    www.EuropeShops.net estimated worth $ 3.011,25 by hiberya.com

    there are alot of web sites and diffrent values about web site worth on the internet, you can search "How much is my web site worth?" from google, I have an web site about web site worth http://www.hiberya.com
    I'm working on web site values like pagerank, daily unique visitors, adsense clicks, site content, I need to other web site values, I want to find real values for web sites,

    I think this is not impossible on the internet
