The truth about website valuations
There is a lot of spurious information about the valuation of websites. Many of
them are from so called authorities but offer largely misleading advice. Various
valuation tools on the internet provide inflated values that have no basis in
reality and are far removed from the prices sites achieve at real-life sales and auctions.
What do we do different?
Here, at eBizValuations, we monitor real sales at various locations. The data
from each sale - from earnings, unique visitors, members and subscribers to Page
Rank, age of site and business model are carefully analyzed and recorded. When
you type in a domain and other data, that's compared against all the accumulated
information to calculate the price it's most likely to sell at.
Who is behind this?
The owner of this site, an entrepreneur with extensive experience of buying and
selling sites, was originally commissioned by the world's largest site for sale
forums, Sitepoint, to put together a definitive report on site valuation. He was
joined by various experts, business groups who've spent tens of millions of
dollars buying sites, accountants specializing in the valuing of business
assets, business brokers and authors of books on business valuation and real
life buyers and sellers. Various models of valuing businesses were considered.
Traditional valuation methods and principles, from Discounted Cash Flow to
Pricing of Intangible Assets and Intellectual Property, were discussed at
The group of experts finally decided that the most accurate appraisals would
take into account not just standard business principles and online business
realities but also current market sentiment.
The net result of this project was a report called The Ultimate Guide to Valuing
Websites (see report on Sitepoint) and ... this eBizValuations site.
How do you calculate value?
Anybody can "value" sites but if they have neither the money nor inclination to
proceed with a purchase, their valuation is of limited use.
We take from you some basic information about the site you own (or are
interested in). We use that information to compare the target site against sites
in our database with the most relevant and pertinent matches to the
target site. We then use our proprietary formulae to calculate the price the
target site is likely to reach at auction.
Is that all you provide?
Actually, no. Run a site through our report engine and you'll get a report not just on
its value but the justification for that value, and a buying report that
discloses a lot of useful information about the site. Use it as a buying report,
an SEO report or a due diligence guide. You'll get the site's PR, various
traffic ranking reports, detailed analysis of the site's back links, and a lot
