    Hey guys,

    I'm curious. Is there a way to discover how much money a site brings in. It would be awesome to be able to see how much different sites were making so you could do something similar in the same market.

    I've never heard of a way to do this but if it exists you guys are the ones who would know.

    Thanks,
    Zozja

    if you are able to find the traffic to the site,you can make an estimate.If the site is using quantcast,you can find it easily.Do not depend on alexa.because i have seen sites with alexa=1 milllion make 100000 dollars per month.So it is a bad idea to derive conclusions through alexa rank.

    Just google how much is my site worth and go to a few sites and it gives estimates of daily ad revenue.

    Only estimates, but I promise that you wont ever get very close. There are too many factors. Unless you are involved with the exact same niche and you have had a steady flow of traffic and conversions, its hard to know what someone is making. Even if you know their traffic flow, there is still no way to tell how something is converting.

    As an estimate,just find out the daily traffic, and calculate about 1$ revenue/1000 visitors.

    There's no way to find out how much money a site really makes. And the sites providing estimates suck badly.

    Yeah.
    Talk to the guy that runs the site, and if you are nice enough he might tell you.
    Other than that - no way. There are sites that try to estimate this by estimating the traffic the site receives, but those are as accurate as a monkey with a crooked crossbow.
