How To Find Out What Is the Worth Of My Blog?

13 replies
Hi warriors

I was thinking to sell one of my blog and I wanted to know some facts that what are effecting on the value of blog. I know that PR, amount of traffic, alexa rank, how much blog is making money and so on. For example if you would check my blog called Affiliate Marketing For All, how much you would be ready to pay for this blog including domain name?

Best Regards,
Amir

      If you know that traffic and revenue are factors in determining blog value, you may want to provide those bits of data before asking for a valuation on your site.

      Those types of sites are notoriously inaccurate. They do not know actual traffic details and actual income statistics for the site. As such, they can not provide an accurate estimation as to their true worth.

      As an example, I just entered four of my sites. The least profitable of them was the one that it estimated as having the highest value. The most profitable site was estimated as having the second lowest value. And that was by quite a wide margin, I might add.

      I just tried another site, a small site of mine. It estimated its value at $21. I've made a lot more than that on the site in just the past couple weeks.

      Dan's content is irregularly read by handfuls of people. Join the elite few by reading his blog: dcrBlogs.com, following him on Twitter: dcrTweets.com or reading his fiction: dcrWrites.com but NOT by Clicking Here!

      Dan also writes content for hire, but you can't afford him anyway.

    There are no automated solutions to valuing a website that actually work. If your blog has good traffic and revenue, it should be worth something (approx 10 x monthly revenue). If not, probably not worth much unless there's something really unique and outstanding about it, which from what I can see, there is not.

    Yeah, please ignore any kind of automated valuation site - they are so far out it isn't even funny.

    Does it earn any revenue currently? I'm assuming not looking at the Alexa rank.

    The "value" largely depends on how you present it to buyers on Flippa, especially with sites that can't be valued by revenue multiples. If you can write good sales copy, you would get around $400-500 on Flippa in my opinion.

    Don't ask people what they would be willing to pay as that is too subjective. For example, I would pay $50, but someone else may be willing to pay $500. It all depends on the person, hence why it is best letting the market decide.

    Yep like someone already said 10x monthly revenue is a fair guesstimate, and pehaps as high as 14x's.

      You have to consider the revenue you are making (if any) from your Blog.

      You can expect between 5 - 10 times your income when selling your blog. For example, if you are making or have made $200, you can sell for $1000 - $2000. In other words you sell to the highest bidder who happen to fall between the above range. You can set your BIN figure as $1500 - the average between the $1000 and $2000.

        10-12 times the monthly revenue is what I've been taught.

    The best way to figure out how much your blog is worth is to multiply its revenue by 8 times ... then this number is what you could sell it for.

    Any questions just let me know
