    Hey,

    Like the title says, what do you guys think is the best tool to estimate sites value? And on what data does it based on?

    Can you trust the outcome of those tools?

    I don't think you can trust any tool available for this kind of appraisal. There are far too many factors to consider. Get your site appraised by a broker. BHW user meathead1234 is a good person to contact. Here is his thread where he appraises sites:

    Yeah I know that there are brokers, but I meant, what is the best tool of the ones that are available.

    In my opinion, none. Their appraisals are completely irrelevant since they don't know enough about your site, nor do they have a list of ready buyers. There are so many factors that contribute to a site's value. i'm not going to list them all, but I've yet to see a an appraisal tool that accounts for them all.

    OP there is no real time appraisal tool that is worth a dollar, and all have zero credibility...

    So how can they evaluate a website!

    Yes, none can. A site can get 100 hits a day and make 100 dollars a day. No website appraisal site can know how much that site is making, it can only estimate traffic and base the revenue of CPM adverts.

    http://www.siteworthchecker.com/

    it estimates facebook.com at 2.9 billion :| worth checking out even if just for comparing results with other appraisals

    actually checked bhw's worth because of another thread on the forum... the tool says it's worth $4.04 million harvesting about $5.500 a day from ads

    I just tested that site by inputting a few of my own sites, and the data is terribly inaccurate.
