    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder (and the pockets). The first one told be $3.4k for mine but I've already made $600 in the past five days so no way in hell would I let it go for $3.4k.

    Generally it depends on the age of the site as well. If it made $100/day for a month it's a bit different than if it made $100/day for a year. The first could easily be a fast ranking domain that is going to get banned/de-indexed/penalized/whatever - the second shows some staying power.

    Those sites are useless. All they are doing is using an algorithm that they defined, to value your site based on a number of criteria that attempts to determine daily revenu. They have no way of gauging a sites future earnings potential. This is especially true if you are sitting on a valuable parked domain, because of the lack of traffic, these valuation sites are blind to it. Site value calculator values wealth.com at 4,000. My valuation would be somewhere in the six figures.

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.
    Home Page:
    Some of my sites come in at 42K+ and are worth less and others come in at 10K plus and are worth over a million dollars.

    Those evaluations are a waste.

    99% of the time these calculators give a value that is COMPLETELY waaayyyyyyy off.
    It could be much much higher or much much lower.

    You would be better off getting an expert opinion of your website.


    case in point:
    I plugged one of my sites into both of your example valuation calculators, in one it showed as being worth $300, the other showed $2000, neither are close to my estimate.

    Useless they had set some parameters to get the valuation of any site if any site passed in it even it does not generate $$$ or not good it shows the value of it i don't like valuation estimator sites.

    Unfortunately it is not possible to calculate a website price %100 correct.
    But to give an idea about the worth of a domain/website you can use these kind of sites.
    I own siteprice.org, you can check any website estimated price. I have checked several websites and I believe its algorithm is not bad. Tyr it, I hope you like it.
    siteprice.org [h=3]domain worth[/h]/[h=3]website value calculator[/h] algorithm KPIs are based on;


    • estimated daily uniqueview(which is maybe the most important factor). Estimated daily unique visitors count is trying to be estimated with several sources like Alexa, Compete, Google Ad Planner etc... It is not %100 correct but with our tests it is very proximate for most of the websites.
    • appraisal daily pageview,
    • estimated daily advertisement income(which will help to indicate the logical price of the domain). Daily Advertisement Revenue calculation is based on Adsense income. Today most of the webmasters use Google Adsense. Our estimation is trying to emulate for a better adsense usage if this website uses 3 adsense ads on all pages. It is not easy to calculate for different keywords because adsense can show an ad not related only the page content, adsense can choose a specific ad for visitor.
    • alexa rank. Alexa is one of the most common website tracker. It measures sites traffic and compares all other websites traffic. Unfortunately it doesn't give always correct values because of manipulations. But it is still the most trustable tracker. And without alexa rank values it is hard to estimate a domain worth.
    • domain google pagerank. Google pagerank is one of the most determining factor for a website quality today. And getting a high PR value is not an easy task. It requires lots of quality work. So Google pagerank value is an important factor for site price worth calculation.
    • search engines google,yahoo and bing index status (Indexing is one of the hardest factor if you have a big website, so we believe that search engine visibility is very important calculating the website value).
    • domain age(which is very important ranking factor for search engines),
    • social media visibility, share count of your site on social media shows that your website has quality content(facebook, twitter, google+),
    • backlink count(google,yahoo,bing,alexa and total external backlink count. Low but quality backlinks are better than high but poor quality backlinks. So this value has a lower impact in our site price calculation algorithm. Backlinks are very related with Google pagerank so we believe that PR value is more important from backlink count.)
