    My website is just 3 months old.

    It does not have enough traffic. So do I need good traffic in order to sell my website?
    and how can i estimate the worth of my website and also what would be the best place where i can sell my website for good price?

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!!

    Focus on the traffic first, without the traffic site has no real value.. worth of website is usually decided by the profit it makes monthly and most of the sellers multiply monthly profit by 20x. To sell your website, you can look for flippa or empireflippers, both have good buyers.

    It all comes down to how potential the website is.

    No, that is not a good idea.

    Drive traffic to your site using SEO, Social Media, PPC Ads and you'll have a legitimate site to sell and not scam someone with fake traffic stats.

    I have an ecommerce website. It has many products of drop shipping. I thinnk it has potential to earn a lot but somehow i am not able to drive it in a proper way. if anyone spend a little money and time on marketting then he will earn a lot out of it.

    Some of the metrics that i think should be considered are earnings as well. How much your site is making? Traffic is second factor to consider.

    Flippa is full of these young sites. Most do not have organic traffic or meaningful content. Unless it's a great domain name, I fail to see why people would buy them (other than trying naivety).

    Building a site is like starting a business. It takes time and effort, it doesn't happen overnight.

    why would anyone buy site from you? Definitely for revenue.. and where will the revenue come from? Definitely from Traffic.. Now big question is where will the traffic come from.. well, there are tons of post here which you can study to get more info on how to drive organic traffic.

    good luck mate

    This would be fraud. It is ilegal in many countries.
