          the website im searching for has been up for couple of years now
          the problem is is that i just dont know what to click on or how to get to the next page or something.
          i even registred.
          i put the address in the box at the top but i gave me nothing.

                  Put it in the address bar top middle of the page.. and then click check it

                  It sometimes takes a few seconds to give you the results

                    thanks a lot
                    i was putting the addressa and clicking "enter"
                    but
                    the right way to do this is to "click" on "check it"

                      now if you want ot know how much you can make from your site as far as revenue,
                      putting ads on your site. how do you figure that out.
                      obviously each site is diffrent when it comes to how much they charge advertisers to put banners, ads on theire website, does dnscoop tell you that info?

                  Here's an idea that would surely tell you what your site is really worth.

                  1. Write a sales letter for it.

                  2. Expose all the financials, traffic, and leads.

                  3. Advertise it on Ebay and start the bidding at $1.

                  4. Set a hidden reserve at whatever price you'd be OVERJOYED to sell it at.

                  5. Start promoting the auction to your list, WSO, PPC, etc., basically scream with a MEGAPHONE... "My site is for sale".

                  6. Let the auction play out and see what someone is willing to pay. You won't be obligated to give up the site unless they hit the "hidden reserve" (which is the amount you specify is the least amount you'll take)

                  You can try and get your site appraised but I wouldn't believe any of them. I'd test it out in the real world and let the buyers tell you how much your site is worth. By selling with a hidden reserve, you'll get a really good idea what you are up against.

                  It'll cost you a few bucks, and some time but you'll get a "REAL ANSWER", not an appraisel.

                  Anyhow, that's just what popped into my head. I have no experience selling websites on Ebay, but I reckon it couldn't be that hard.

                  Best of luck.

                    very true Jason! Either that or compare it to some of the sites for sale on sitepoint.com's marketplace
