    Here is a great site for website and blog owners. You can try to take a look on how much does your site costs. It will also give you a detailed view on what is the rank of your site and how much is your daily visit.

    That looks interesting. But I think it's not that correct as it only values in visitor statistics or traffic. It would be better if it would buy some of the websites/domains itself or make a trade system. But it's not so, it's a free service. I don't think so most of the people will agree in this kind of valuation.

    I think No. They're not valued upon visitors or website traffic. Check the worth price of my new launched site.

    I don't know how this site is valuing the price of other site?

    I checked for BAF on three sites and here are the results:
    Link:http://www.websiteoutlook.com/www.businessadviceforum.com
    Link:http://www.websitevaluecalculator.com/
    Link:http://www.urlappraisal.net/search.php?textSearch=www.businessadviceforum.com&searchSubmit=Appraise
    Now My question is who is right in this all, I think they are messed up in there stat and they do not have any rule how to estimate a site's price.

    Very different price measure. The amount of value of Business Advice Forum in bizinformation.org is different than yours,

    Hi Narci,

    I think non of this site can tell the exact amount because we are the owner of our sites and we only decide the price.

    This is all sites just give and Estimate as shown by DEADMAN, they also write that it might be wrong.

    So no one should be considered correct.:)

    Non of this sites are right

    few of them use alexa information and other's compete information

    i will give you one example of mine
    in one of my blogger blog which was just tree day old

    its estimated price was said to be $ 78

    even many websites show wrong data about your website

    so they cant be trusted and we cant believe non of them ....

    Personally I don't believe the values produced by those estimators. Most of them are gimmicks designed to generate back links, in my opinion. The value of a site, really comes down to what you could sell it for, in other words what someone is prepared to pay for it.

    I certainly hope that the $95 value for BAf is not correct :( I'd much prefer a valuation of $329,828.4, but to be perfectly honest I don't believe that either.

    I agree with you Fergal, they all are I think wrong and they show wrong states.
    The value of a site is never decided perfectly until it got sold.

    Well, different sites offers different types of estimations. But I really doubt that any of them is correct. Like what Fergal had said, it's impossible for a site to worth that much because of the traffic they are getting. How about the design and other aspects?

    Another nice site that provides valuation services is http://stimator.com/ I first came across it, when it was offered for sale a few months back. Again, I don't think the values it estimates are accurate.

    Yes, there design is good, the estimation of BAF there is USD - 6,346

    I think is also not correct, I think this type of sites should add one page telling that this measures are Approx. and they cannot guarantee in that. Because anybody can take some legal actions against them.

    I suggest that none of you get too excited about those online evaluations. I've taken one of my websites and submitted to several of them.

    Here are the results:

    bizinformation - 12,906
    dnscoop - 42
    stimator - 5,067
    websiteoutlook - 613
    sitevaluecheck - 730
    mywebsiteworth - 25
    u2ws - 1,717
    domainfreeappraisal - 260

    From $25 to $12,900?? Obviously, someone is crazy here...

    IMHO, the value of a website is not what the owner thinks it's worth, is not what these scripts determine, it is what the market is prepared to pay for it, as mentioned by Fergal.

    Good point, I was very surprised to see that Stimator does not include this type of warning. Bizinformation does include the statement below, to cover themselves.
    Bizinformation appear to give the highest valuation for any site checked. I'd presume they have a promotion strategy in place based around estimating the highest values. Users will feel happier when they are given a higher valuation, hence they will enjoy using the site more. Plus they are more likely to tell other people what Bizinformation valued their site at, if that value is high.

    A blog owner may not want to tell his readers that his blog has been valued at $100, but he will be delighted to tell them that the blog has been valued at $90,000 by Bizinformation.
