We wondered about this question and thought can some tool really place a monetary value on our sites? How reliable are their algorithms? Most of the tool sites would note that a value is gathered based on some of these factors: BackLinks, Traffic (based on Alexa), age of the domain, Technorati, PageRank, site category, domain keyword popularity, and overall occurrences of the domain name on the web.
This is the first time we are testing our site for such and we are very curious to know if we could perhaps sell our website and retire to Hawaii early! LOL.
We know better of course. We’re 3 months shy to our anniversary and we know how the age of a domain hugely affects value (the older the site is, the higher the value) regardless of PageRank and backlinks. Just for kicks we searched for websites available that shows us how much our site is worth.
According to Dane Carlson, the creator who first started it all by asking “How much is your blog worth?” Blogs That Follow site has a laughable $0.00. This is based on Technorati data “which computes and displays your blog’s worth using the same link to dollar ratio as the AOL-Weblogs Inc. deal,” says the site. That means all our efforts since we started 9 months ago are pretty much worthless if we are to believe what it revealed.
