First of all, thanks for this wonderful thread.

After reading (correct my newbie opinion if itls wrong), it seems like there are two valuation methods for domain/site value.
1. Based on current revenue/traffic.
2. Subject to importancy of the domain name to the buyer.

The first method is 'relatively' easy to measure.

But the second one is very subjective. And, after 33 replies and QDOS case, I still don't know how to properly put price for (subjective) unique domain name.

And you will never know. If you had ipads-com it would be worth maybe 10k tops. The day Apple wanted to name their latest gadget ipad the value went by a factor of 100. Among other things, you have to judge:
How bad do you need the sale
How bad do they need the name
What value does it have for them

If you query a search engine like so:

value domain name [bing.com]

site:webmasterworld.com (plus any other search phrase)

you will find many threads discussing the topic.

You can also search this forum's "Library" -> link at upper left.
