Many of us that own websites always wonder what would be the value of our website if we were to sell them today. Some of us may also be seriously trying to establish the value of our websites to sell them either because we are unable to manage them or because we are in need of money. Whatever is the case, it is always a good thing to know what your website is worth.
Number of factors need to be taken into consideration when you try to establish the value of your website. Here are some important factors that go into your website’s value consideration.
One of the most important factors that needs to be considered is the number of visitors per day. If your website gets highest visitor traffic or if the daily visits per day is high, then the value of your website will be proportionately high. You may have invested thousands of dollars in creating a graphically stunning website but if its traffic level is very low, you cannot expect a high value for your website.
Secondly, the number of backlinks you have also matters a great deal. If you have been constantly working your website’s link building and acquired a lot of back links then your website’s online popularity will be high and so will be your website’s value.
Thirdly, your website’s Google PageRank is of another major factor for consideration. Google which is plays monopoly in the search industry ranks websites using its own trademark ranking algorithm called PageRank. Webmasters lose their night’s sleep on increasing their website’s page rank. It is not without reason that the entire SEO industry tries to spend so much of money and time on improving their page rank. The higher the PageRank, the greater the value of your website. Website’s with good PageRank tend to rank better in the search result’s page.
Yet another factor that is important is your website’s Alexa rank. Alexa ranks websites based on the number of page views or visitors a website receives. Websites with many years of history are more valuable than brand new sites. Added to this, your domain name has also a decisive role to play in establishing your website’s value. If you have a premium domain, then your website will be worth several thousand dollars.
If you think it is too much for you to handle, you can hire a professional company that will estimate the value of your website and provide you with a detailed report. However, you will have to pay huge fees to get your website’s value estimated.
