    I am planning to buy over a domain that has been around for 22 months and PR 0. I was wondering how you guys recommend regarding

    1) What tools or website to evaluate the value of a domain?
    2) What criteria are the most important to consider beside traffic, PR, website age?
    3) What tools or website is the most accurate at telling you how much traffic a website is getting? Alexa is a joke in my book.

    This is my first attempt at buying a website and any advice from experienced BHW members will be very useful. Cheers.

    Hi,

    A domain is worth what someone is prepared to pay for it ...

    ... and more helpfully ...

    The one I follow is 18 months net profit.
    You can then add premiums for traffic, if the domain is "hot" right now, have you collected emails/customer list etc ...

    Hope this helps,
