Occasionally, I like to give my mind a treat, and visit some of those sites that claim to be able to value domains. I made reference to one, StrategicFirst back in my post of May last year, Your Website Archive on the WayBack Machine, which valued my site at $5000!
Last time I checked StrategicFirst was no longer with us, but there are some more, which I thought I would share.
Firstly we have the the valuation service at err, $timator.Com. This values the domain name at a whopping $35,692 at the time of writing.
Not to be outdone, TweetValue.com values it at an eye-watering $140,951!
Suspiciously similar is the valuation at domainvalue.congland.com, which quotes the value as $5,413.
Perhaps slightly more realistic is the valuation at estibot.com, which estimates the worth as $380.
dnScoop attempts to ruin my fun by valuing it at a paltry $27!
That’s more like it! CubeStat.com cheers me up a little with a valuation of $1,721.34.
Meanwhile, URLAppraisal.net estimates $19,650.15.
I’m getting bored now, but time for one final estimate. According to WebArtiter.com, JamesWiseman.com is worth $7391.25.
I stopped on page 2 of a Google search for “domain value” (unquoted). Looking at pages 3 onwards there would appear to be many more. This seems to me like a perfect opportunity for some sort of aggregation utility.
In reality I’m never going to sell this site unless I get a really good offer. Regardless of how much it is worth to someone else, its worth a lot to me, and represents a lot of my time invested.
