Traffic is worthless if it doesn't convert.
Does the owner give any ideas of how much the site earns?

yes, I just received an email with his exact traffic stats and earnings. he mentioned he earned much more through Google Adsense, but i am a bit worried that he may have been banned by Google Adsense since no ads from Google appeared for the past 9 months.
his other earnings varied from $15/day - $50/day and also had several spikes of $200-$300/day.

i can tell you the exact value:
something is worth what someone else will pay for it ... therefore as you mention in another thread that you paid a couple of thousand dollars, then that's what it is worth!

That was how much it was worth to me. But if I were to sell the domain with his traffic stats, I would have asked for more hence why I asked the question.
I wanted to get a rough estimate of what people pay or have paid for sites with such traffic and stats.
My payment and transaction is still pending and I think it will take 1-2 days before the name is completely transferred. He had listed the domain for $4500. I offered and paid $3500 and I think im happy about it. ;) - dont know yet if I got a good deal or not.

using his lowest earnings per day, you should be break even after 8 month (if it is all organic traffic).
Since you already offer similar content on other sites, you could capture these visitors (email signups etc) to consume even more content (and products/adclicks) from you.
Pricing (IMHO) of a domain always depends on the potential someone sees in developing it

One main problem is the DOS attack he mentioned again yesterday. A group is trying to shut down his website. He manages his own server but mentioned that there are hosting companies that prevent DOS attacks and Server shut downs.

I'm making over $20/day and hoping to make much more. The advertising companies said it will take about a week for their algorithm to pick up the website's content and serve related ads. Ill have to be patient until then!

Also, the traffic is much more than what he had listed!
I think I finally got a good deal! :)

i always think there's only one way to get on in business - put your money where your mouth is! you win some and you lose some ... glad this one is a winner!

First of all congrats that the site is earning what it is supposed to.

Would be interesting to see an update in about a month to evaluate if the 'related ads' turned out to be more profitable.
Good luck with the site
