Ever wondered how much your website is really worth? Well here are five fun tools that attempts to figure that out :
Glurk : Glurk bases your valuation on factors such as value of the domain name, Google Page Rank, Alexa Traffic Rank, Number of Incoming Links, Monthly Uniques, Monthly Pages, Years in Existence, Monthly Income etc. However, unlike most other tools in this list it doesn’t automatically pull in this data. You have to enter all the data yourself.
Sootle Website Worth : This is a rather simple tool. Just enter your website’s url and Sootle will give you an estimated value for your website. The result is merely based on the number of backlinks returned by Yahoo!.
dnScoop : dnScoop uses a number of parameters like Alexa Traffic Rank, Yahoo! backlinks, Google Page Rank and domain age to guess the value of a website. It even suggests a link value for services such as Text Link Ads.
Cubestat : Cubestat is probably the most comprehensive when it comes to analysing your website’s traffic. It makes uses of traffic data provided by Alexa, Compete and Quantcast. It also takes into account other factors like Google Page Rank and Number of Backlinks. It returns the estimated worth of the website as well as daily pageviews.
WebsiteValued : WebsiteValued uses Compete’s metrics for judging your website’s popularity. Unlike other services you have the option to enter Advertising Revenue, Sales Revenue, number of Active Subscribers and Operating Costs to help WebsiteValued make a better estimate. Unlike other services WebsiteValued doesn’t offer an exact value. Instead it returns an Upper Estimate and a Lower Estimate.
Valuation of a website is a fairly complexÂ thing and can’t be done accurately by any automated script. Hence, do take the valuations provided by these tools with a grain of salt. If you serious about appraising a website check out this article.
