    All replies will be random speculations, you would need exact numbers of visitors, ctr to ads, revenue from ads, revenue from subscriptions, revenue from marketplace threads (very low probably). Then there are partnerships and events like UnGagged. I don't think revenue is big enough to value it in millions range.

    Uh no it definitely is worth multiple millions. Any site with 700k+ page views a day is.

    You obviously have no idea what you are talking about, any site with 700k page views is worth millions? Please explain me that.

    BHW is a internet marketing forum, most of it's revenue is probably coming from ads, and guess what, marketers are aware of ads and are not falling for them, high percentage is blind to them or has adblock, which makes ctr to ads low. Minimal revenue is coming from JrVip subs and marketplace threads, probably just enough to cover costs of running a forum.

    Obviously I can't be sure, but I think that it's revenue isn't that big so that worth would be in millions range.

    The "worth" of a website is pure speculation. It has the potential to generate millions just like any site does. Potential is worthless if not exploited.

    "Worth" is also whatever someone else is ready to pay to buy the business.

    Is it doing making millions? I don't know... I don't have access to their books and neither do most of you.

    I agree with everything else you said, it's speculation. But it's like $500 a year for a marketplace thread a year, there's A LOT of market place threads, that would add up.

    700k page views a day doesn't mean a site is earning a ton of revenue. Not only are people using adblockers these days but for a site like BHW there are many persons from countries where the cpm and cpc rates are very low.
