    Hey guys,

    Recently I start to research about Domain brandable and domain searching for sale. I found some really nice domain with valuable SEO and Brandable. I check them with several Appraisal sites like estibot and freevaluator, at the first, I got so different results.

    I want to know How much can I trust them? Some of my domains Value by estibot more than $500, Should I buy them?

    I will be so happy to read your idea and experience.
    Best

    Are you also running these domains through Semrush or AHREFs to see if they are clean ?

    What sort of traffic are they getting ?Think in your own minds eye, if you think the domain is brandable and worth the price.
    If you are wanting to sell a product, is the domain niche relevent or able to used as a brandable site url ?

    You can't put much weight in those calculation tools, at best they are an indicator. Do as @MisterF said and do your own evaluation.

    Even i am too in the similar situation. but i think domain name should be carefully chosen. I found domains which was showing at $700+ value in estibot but not sure if i should go for it or leave it.

    There are so many factors that affect the value of a domain.

    Tools like estibot have to make all kinds of assumptions when arriving at a figure, you can't put much faith in the final number.

    Estibot is for domain flipping and its not that accurate, i sold many domains which estibot estimated as worthless for thousand bucks.

    Thanks for all replies.

    They were nice questions for me, the domains I have are some expired old domain with backlinks and good niche names. When I see how much they are valued by Estibot I really got excited about them, maybe I smelled the money but I am not sure if it is not illusion :D
