Basic facts, one of my sites gets 8,000 uniques a day, 4 page views a visit and earnings from various sources are (this figure is example only) $300 a day. Earnings figures go back 5 years, regularly increasing year on year to the current figure. Make me an offer for my site and I bet it's less than $200,000. Why less than that? Normal business rules value a standard business at 8 times annual earnings. My site requires no regular updates and the content will remain up to date for years ahead.
What are the rules for valuing a website, where do you go to buy or sell one?

I don't quite get your math. If your earnings are $ 300.00 a day that would give you a valuation of well over the 200,000.00 figure at 8 times annual earnings. Unless you are talking about net earnings, which you didn't state.KF

but why would you want to sell your site if, as you say, you don't need to update it or touch it, your revenue is at $300 a day and steadily increasing? Seems like, from what you're saying, you just sit back and watch it make money without actually doing anything. Seems stupid to sell when you could make more by just keeping it...
