    A price that many use when they're selling their websites is the revenue your site make in a year.

    So if your site makes $1,500 a month in revenue, a nice price for both parts, both seller and buyer, would be $18,000.

    But there is a lot of factors that decide the "actual" value of the site.

        I think it is difficult to sell a siet for its annual revenue. But it is doable. Sell the site for what you think it is worth. Never sell yourself short.

          It's not difficult, the majority of people are just cheap. You have to sort through all the cheap people to find the one that's not.

          I'm sure all of those sites on Flippa on sale for two months or even one month of their annual revenue are completely legit :rolleyes:

          I've found the best number to aim for when people are trying to sell a website, is 10 months of verifiable income. 12 months definitely is doable, but people feel like they're getting a huge deal (again the non-cheap people) when you save them 2 months off an annual earning quarter.

          A $1,000 earning website should go for $10,000
          A $2,000 earning website should go for $20,000

          Stay away from those ridiculous $300, $500 or $1,000 websites claiming to make that much a month. That's about the equivalent of hiring a web designer to build you websites for $50 or going to Fiverr for "quality backlinks".

    Hi, I thought it was 8x monthly revenue. You might want to check though. Website valuations are very dodgy lately with so many updates people are wary of valuations based on past performance. With all the Google updates it could take a slap tomorrow and be worthless. I'm not saying your site is like that but buyers are becoming wary. If it's an authority site that's popular it should be OK though. So in answer to your question I think it depends on what a potential buyer thinks it's worth. Nothing more.

      that's why it really depends on the stability of the income, the more stable ones are usually able to sell off at even 20x monthly revenue

      I think first you should monetize your site, and then post it into Flippa. As far as i know, nobody is paying more then a 200% of the anual revenew of the site. This means that if someone buys, he will expect to get a 50% minimum ROI per year...

      Never give up.
