Probably you have met different views which has been mentioning ways of pricing your website. Conventionally standards for valuing your website depends on items such as website traffic, Alexa rank, Google rank, monthly income, website age, domain value. All these items are significant for pricing your website undoubtedly.
All these are called fundamental analysis based on historical datas in stock markets that is a pricing approach and the fact is a bit unfashioned. There is phrase in stock markets: Expectations are bought, realisations are sold. That expectations about the future of markets. We can’t ignore in platforms which works according to free market rules such as Siterobot.com. Sure enough, we need historical datas for pricing a website. If you can include expectations into factors which pricing a website for the future by supporting datas.
I can hear you are asking how you gonna do this? I am not saying it is easy but possible. First of all, you need historical datas basing on past as early as possible. How much earlier your data is, you can make better estimations. For example, a website which has traffic that is going up steady, is likely to get more traffic in the future. It is possible that using the same method for income estimations or others. It is necessary to consider the conditions of every data type. to give another example you have a website that has 100,000 Alexa rank, it is easier to upgrade the websites Alexa rank to 90,000 than upgrading from 20,000 to 10,000 even both upgrading makes 10,000 website difference. Another benchmark is development expectations on the industry which your website’s activating in for estimations. For example if you have game marketing website, you should evaluate the expectations on game industry, or it is an e-trade website, you had better to research trends on e-trade industry. What is the estimation period fort he future? In capital markets projections can go up to five years. As internet industry is so dynamic and open to fast changes, restricting estimation period to two year is advisable..
Everytime you need to prove the datas you declare. Unreliable data which is not supported by proofs reduces your listings effect.
