Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Forum Moderators: phranque
Need your help here if possible. I have recently been offered to buy a hosting forum.
On the plus side:
- Looks like it has 15200 indexed pages (indexed by googlebot)
- pr5 home, some pr4 inside, a lot of pr3 inside
- i have a few link buyers already
On the minus side:
- on the average just 300 uniques a day
- just 18 active members
But more importantly, what do you think would be a fair price to buy a site like that?
I do hope I am not violating the forum rules as, believe me I am not trying to promote this site. Most SEO forums that I partcipate in were of little of zero use so WebmasterWorld is probably my last stop...
Your advice would be very much appreciated.

p= current-potential-value * 10 years
q= expenses * 10 years
r= potential - expenses
This is base value. May be additional counting is required. (Brand e.t.c.)
for example (all numbers and values is fictious) :
18 members * 30$ yearly = 540$
540$ * amortize to 10 years =5400$
Yearly expenses: 300$
300$ * expenses in 10 years =3000$
5400 - 3000 = 2400$
300 visitors a day at $0.02 per visitor (which might be high) = $6 per day or $180 per month
$180 per month for 36 months is $6480.
I think that would probably be a fair price. It should be relatively easy to monetize the current visitors at that price, and I think there could be quite a bit more potential if you could grow the user and visitor base.
