    interested in a valuation

    hi guys,

    This is my first post so please forgive me :-)

    I was just wondering what you think my site might be worth:

    The domain is fxtradingguide.com
    It makes about $80/month with adsense

    the domain is over 4 years old, it has a google PR of 3
    traffic is not very high, average about 75 visits per day, 75% of those from google, the rest direct or referring sites

    it is number 1 for "forex trading guide" and "Forex Trading Tutorials" and in the top 10 for forex tutorials and some other keywords.

    I'm not sure if i want to sell it at this point, I'm just considering it.

    I'd be grateful for any opinions.

    Thanks,

    pete

    Here's my brain dump on it...

    I value the $80/month adsense at 5x = $400

    I suck at valuing domains so I won't even try...

    The SEO value is very little because using http://freekeywords.wordtracker.com
    shows that their is less then 7 searches per day for the terms you rank for. So I'd
    say maybe add on another $100 for the SEO value.

    My valuation is about $500

    I bet he'd get at least double that with a regular listing in the marketplace. Your methodology for valuating sites is pretty whacked MpyreDzirez.

    agreed, probably could get $800-$1000 because of the SEO on keywordsand age of domain n ame and site
