    Hi

    I remember reading (maybe here) that the value of a website is 1 months profit times 10

    is this correct?

    Generally speaking yes...but depends also on age and potential of the website. newer site will be less and older site, could get more.

    I would add that it depends largely on how long the website has been earning revenue.
    A website earning $300/month for 3 months,
    generally sells for less than a website earning $300/month for 12 months.

    You also have to consider how the website makes money.
    How much work is involved to keep current earnings stable.

    Could be more. I see sites going for 18 times monthly profit.

    This is generally true. Usually 8-12 months profit is what you will get at flippa.

    Most other places its 6-10 months of total profit. Of course the amount in that range is dependent upon your site, niche, age, and if its a evergreen niche.
