I understand that valuations are a tricky business and it all really "depends". But if one were to value a website purely for its authority status in google and nothing else .. what would that fair value be in today's market.

Just to put it in different words. If some one is selling a website which has a google authority status and no revenue .. is there an absolute min he can expect to get.

I think that would be the same as buying highly volatile Internet stocks. :)

While the sites "status" within the search engines is a top factor in determining value, it cannot be the only one. As soon as that domain changes hands and the "meaning" of the site changes, there may be issues for the buyer. There are all sorts of variables at play here. I've seen instances (reported here at WebmasterWorld) that as soon as the WhoIs changed, performance of the property purchased suffered. I don't know if that is a given, but I surely wouldn't purchase a website based on its Google status alone. That's one BIG EGG!

I understand that there are lots of factors at play and value is more in the eyes of the beholder than any thing else ..

Put it yet another way .. what premium can a google authority site expect in percentage terms over another website which is not an authority. A range if not a number.
