    Are you interested most ...

    in the traffic? What part of the awstats would you want to see the most?

    The domain age?

    How long it has been established?
    SEMrush
    The Pagerank associated with it?

    Please post what interests you most when making a decision to buy a website and why.

    I like to know about the traffic, unique hits and return visitors. Also important is where the visitors are coming from.

    probably, the visitors, the income it brings in, and the domain age.

    Thanks for your input guys!

    Is there a way to generate a link so visitors can come and look at your awstats without a password? Anybody know how?

    Besides how good the name is itself...

    How brandable is the name?
    What traffic, if any? Unique visitors.
    Age of the domain - check my sig for age seo.
    Some site metrics such as PR, alexa, and backlinks are helpful.

    metrics tool

    I would look for the content - is the content unique. Then i would look for the backlinks of the site -> how many different sites are linking to it, how many are related sites and how many of those links have PR. Then i would look at the current serps position, for which keywords the site is getting traffic. Based on this i would buy a site.

    would see:
    1. Domain shouldnt be dropped ever.
    2. Age of the website
    3. Backlinks it has.
    4. Content, is it unique or not.
    5. it shouldnt be blacklisted , banned or sandboxed by google.
    6. reputation of the owner.

    What I want to see are:

    1. Keyword rich domain name.
    2. Contents must be unique.
    3. How many unique visitors does the website get daily.
    4. Any income yet or not.
    5. Already have PR is an added value.

    Yes, I've bought a few websites in the past. The reason I'm asking is because I'm about to sell a few. I wanted to see what stats people most wanted to see.

    Voomhosting says to post a screenshot to awstats. I was hoping people would tell me the exact parts of the awstats they wanted to see most, like the referrers, or how many links were coming from google, keywords that landed people on the site, that kind of stuff.

    And thanks to everyone for their input.
