How to check the value of my website

Discussion in 'General Business' started by piosyd, Dec 23, 2013.

    Hi Guys,

    Not selling now just wondering how to establish reasonable value for my website.
    I run my website for over 2 year and I was wondering how much I can ask for it.
    I checked some websites like flippa and tried to find similar websites to mine so I could see the price they were sold. Unfortunately I could not find any, they are some similar website for sale but .... they are with no PR, no track of income and crap design.
    Any ideas what would be the best way to approach this issue?

    What is the daily traffic on it? Does your site offer anything of reasonable value?

    One thing you can look into is what's called website flipping, below is a listed a site that can give you a complete breakdown on how it works.

    Best of luck

    There are a variety of sites that value it for you or you could look up a formula you could use for a more accurate valuation. And if you do sell it in the future, I would suggest using a website broker to sell it, you will get much moe than on flippa. But the process is longer but worth it.

    I have an issue with ALL website worth checking sites. Here's why. They need to start using the same or similar algorithm to give a more precise estimate. Let me give you an example of why I think it is important.

    According to worthofweb.com Google is now $ 78,650,521,400. However howmuchwebsiteworth.com values it at $876,410,334. Say what??? We are talking billions vs. millions here.

    http://www.worthofweb.com/website-value/google.com

    http://howmuchwebsiteworth.com/show.php?url=google.com

    I think one is appealing to the sellers and the other to the buyers. Neither one estimate is good enough though. Otherwise the estimates would have been closer to each other.

    Learn on-line of one's site:
    Your website could be really worth hundreds of thousands... could you understand the idea? It is definitely necessary for a completely independent site agent to understand in the event that their web-site's earning likely is maximised. This specific application will certainly review your blog and will inform you simply how much the idea believes your blog is worth. It will give a few tips on how to monetise the idea through promoting, internet affiliate marketing as well as independent promoting.

    How does one value a site though? Shouldn't it be treated like a business, and use a multiple of gross income for a ballpark figure? If so, what is a rough range of multiples to use these days for this sector?

    The value will depend on how much money you are making from it each month.

    As a rule of thumb, you can expect to sell it for up to twelve months earnings.

    A good way to get an idea is to visit flippa.com

    this will help you.

    Have a look at what sites are selling for - this will help.

    Best Regards

    If you have real revenues and the online or offline business is profitable, I would say that 1x annual revenues would be a reasonable offer. It used to be 2-3x annual revenues for a profitable business, but economic conditions have changed. Some highly profitable businesses might use a higher multiple against profits (not revenues) but I think that this is less common these days, as well. Of course, if significant capital equipment or some other expensive asset is involved, that would change the math.

    It has been a fact of my career (spanning a couple of decades) that there is a "Golden Rule" of business that goes like this:

    "He or she with the Gold rules."

    Has always been the case in my experience and I see no sign of that changing any time soon.

    I think it depends on your niche, traffic source, revenue (stable preferred) etc.

    You can't use an online tool to appraise your web site. I have a pr1 web site with low traffic serving as an auto loan lead generator. This site produces easily over 15k per month for one of my dealers between a few sales. An online appraisal tool says this site makes 2 dollars a month and is worth 10 bucks. Right......

    It also depends on the business model. If it requires for constant labor and involvement you won't receive as high as a valuation. There's really a lot to it but you can expect 8x-12x monthly earnings typically.

    none of the estimation websites in my opinion tells you the truth. The actual value of the website is your traffic and this traffic can be monetized in several ways to realize the value as a multiple of that probably.

    That's not true. Perhaps if your site makes 10 bucks a month selling it for 80-120 dollars may make sense but if your site generates 120k a year I can't see anyone selling it for 80k. That's like receiving 50% interest on your investment in the first year. Then each year thereafter you have a XXX%+ return. Not the slightest bit realistic....

    The 8-12mo revenue evaluation is probably ideal only for web sites that have minimal profits.

    Ps. If anyone has a web site that makes over 100k a year and wants to sell it for less than one year of revenue contact me ASAP because I'll buy single one and even throw you a 5% lifetime share. Haha..
