Would You Pay $234,706 For This Blog?

One of my New Year’s Resolutions was to downsize as far my websites and blogs are concerned. You probably guested alredy, Go Beyond MLS will be for sale soon, maybe days from now. To be honest I have never sold a website before, so this list of online website value estimators was rather handy to help me write this post. As you can see bellow the estimate range from over $200,000 to $103 (some of the widgets bellow may change by the time I publish this post though). So here are some of the estimates along with my thoughts on some of them…

Markosweb.com estimate www.go-beyond-mls.com at over $200,000
Yes I am with you. I could not believe what I saw either. Sure I would like to think this blog is worth that much, but most likely it is not worth that much. One never knows, however.

When I showed this to my wife, I told her that I am willing to give my car to any one who might be willing to make this offer. She said she would give hers as well. So if you decide to make this offer you will receive a bonus, two sedans in “as is” condition! :)

Dane Carlson’s widget estimates the worth of this blog at about $25,000.


My blog is worth $24,839.76.
How much is your blog worth?

Dane Carlson’s blog value estimator has been around for some time now.

I remember coming across this widget about 4 years ago and as many other bloggers would check it out to satisfy my ego and dream of the time my websites would make me filthy-rich. :)

Not sure how correct this estimation is, I would however seriously consider an offer of this amount.

But my guts are telling me that when I list this website for sale and bids will not likely to reach this amount. Only time will show.

No cars as a bonus with will be given to any one who offers this amount, sorry.

Good folks at Websitevaluecalculator.com think this blog is worth only $103?


My site is worth $103.
How much is yours worth?

Come on guys, give me a break! Really???

Considering the yearly cost of domain, plus the web hosting costs your guesstimate is laughable at best. I do want to recover some of that.

Besides if I made the estimate considering ad/affiliate revenue along it would be worth much more than that.

In fact, I believe that the link from this post to your not so cool website value “guesstimator” is probably worth more than that!

Seriously guys, give me a brake.

Initially I wanted to comment on every estimate in this post, however most of these estimators rely on a third part tools and are not always accurate. Most of them are designed for no other purpose than “link-bait”. Neither would I recommend that you would use these tools if you ever decide to sell your blog or website.

I am sure you can find all the tools I mentioned so far and the ones bellow amusing and entertaining. The truth is I will rely on none of them to determine the amount I think this blog is worth.

If you are interested in purchasing this blog, or just be a spectator of an interesting auction (most likely via eBay) you should do one of the following: subscribe to this blog, follow this blog on Twitter or become fan on Facebook.

There probably dozen of other similar website “valuation” tools I could have used, but I seriously see no purpose of doing so. At the end the value of this website will be determined by the highest bid/offer. Admittedly, I am very excited about the entire process. If you are interested as well, stay tuned to hear more news on the subject soon.

    They say that the average customer costs around $70 just to get on site (forget selling to them). In which case your feed count of 738 would value your audience at $51,660.

  2. Matt,

    The 738 number is deceiving due to FriendFeed “inflation” if you know what I mean.

  3. Friendfeed inflation varies widely. My techie blog subscribers nearly doubled when Friendfeed first came out, even the dormant sites. Out of the web nerd arena, Friendfeed causes very little subscriber inflation.

  4. Elizabeth,
    I agree. The readership of this blog is inflated by about 600 thanks to Friendfeed.

  5. Vlad, it is nearly impossible to put a figure on a blog’s value. Likely, it comes down to one thing and one thing only: what a buyer would be willing to pay for it.

    If you find a solid formula, let us know. I have a site I plan on selling, but its valuation remains a mystery for me.

  6. Put this baby on eBay and let the common people battle it out!!!

  7. Kevin,

    Thar is/was my plan. I am not sure thought if 10 day auction listing will attract needed attention. At this I am not willing to spend more than $200 to publicize the sale. I am also getting lots of e-mails from friends telling me it’s a mistake to sell it. Originally I hoped to have it auctioned by now. The biggest downside to this website that I never made much of an effort for it to make money from ads/affiliate sales.

    Best of luck. I sure hope you are able to get what you deserve. The highest amount I got for a domain + website (content) was $4,000 and I was happy with that. Getting $100K+ would be amazing.

  9. [...] rather lengthy deliberation on how to price this website for sale, I have decided to list it today at $15,000 on eBay as 10 day [...]

    Just to add testimonial, though I found that you haven’t got $234,706 for this Blog,but since last 2 years I have found really good content on your blog. Though it seems like this blog might not worth much, but even you haven’t updated this site for around 6 months now, I suppose, it is doing relatively well.
