    I just checked for fun a few of my domains on estibot. it says my domain cmg24.com is worth $2,900 USD. Is this really true?

    Estibot and any domain valuing software is terrible for working out the value of domains. That domain is not worth that much unless you build a website on it or sell to a very rich end user.

    Dude, I sold social media profile & a site that made no money but had value to *the right person for 5k. If I would have listened to one of those estimated sites I would have sold it for $1000 because that's what it was "worth". Don't trust any of those tools. There are obviously metrics people will use to figure out the worth of a site but in my opinion all of those automated estimation systems are crap.

    Here we go again . Your domain is worth nothing unless it gets traffic .

    That's not completely true. His domain name may be worth nothing, but I have purchased just a domain name and it was worth something - without traffic. Each situation is different. Depends on the buyer.
