    So here is what happened. A week ago I purchased a domain to use for a temporary website so I could post an ad to hire employees for my friends tax service, and direct them to the site to complete the application. Anyways, today I checked my email and there was a message from a domain appraisal service saying that my domain was worth like $70k. That was awesome, but a little unbelievable, so I went to the site and checked all 80 of my domains. Some of my domains were worth almost nothing according to the appraisal service, but others were worth quite a HUGE sum! Below is a list of the 14 worthy appraisals I had:

    Now the thing is, even though I found most of my domains to be pretty much worthless, I still find it hard to believe that maybe I am holding domains worth that much. If it is true, truth is (with everything I have been going through this year) I would be happy with a couple hundred thousand for all of them, but what should I do? Should I sell them all at once low, or should I sell them 1 at a time and try to sell 1 each month or something? Also, maybe someone else can check the accuracy of this domain appraisal service for me. It is http://domainestimator.com/

    Sorry to disappoint you,but such services are not accurate,
    not even 10% accurate.

    About 2 years ago I tried to sell one of my domain which had value 3k$ acc. to domain value estimator site and no one ever purchased it :p

    Sorry to burst your bubble, but no site estimator is accurate. plus the days of EMDs are gone content and good seo is more important than a good domain. You could post the ones you think are worth money on something like flippa but I doubt you'll get a lot without any traffic or earnings.

    Domains are only valuable if someone needs it for a particular reason and has no copyright claim to it. Other wise they are worth registration fee.

    There's only one way to find out........try to sell a couple of them and see how much you get, then you'll have a better idea wether they're worth anything.

    Easiest way to make domain appraisal tools more accurate, is to multiple the appraised value by 3, then subtract 10 million. (only subtract 5 million if there's a vowel in your domain)

    Really seems they got that value wrong too!

    Seems like they are after G asking for an appraisal so they can charge G for the valuation service!

    Did that same search but without the "www." part:
    Appraised Value: $84,411,516
    Wholesale Value: $63,308,657
    Monetized Value: $3,836,887 /day

    So it sees two different values for every site.


    P.S.: Oops, I see that dunhill has beaten me to that info. :)

    I usually try to estimate all my new domains, as soon as I purchase. I have see 1000s for many and 0 for a lot. But, those sites are damn asses for sure. I know even OP knows that IMO, being a donor. Isn't it OP?

    Looks like you can pick up twitter.com for $1k USD and with www. its $22k USD

    Looks like a cheap,poorly designed site. I used to check sites with valuate.com during my newbie days and even that is far from accurate.

    No online estimators are correct.

    The only correct value is how people perceive the domain. Apparently, from my point of view, your domain is at reg fee.
