How much is my site? - Discover the 5 variables that give value to your website

Surely you've ever wondered what it's worth doing the work you are creating content for your website and struggling to attract traffic and customers.

This article aims to analyze the 5 variables that affect the value of a web, and at the same time, show you tools that can be helpful to quantify these variables.

What variables affect the value of a website?

Variables that affect the value of a site: the domain name, users of your website, market segments to which users belong, your database, your audience on social networks.

How much is a domain name?

A new domain

The market price of a new domain is between 5 € and 15 € a rule. It all depends on the domain extension you use (.com, .es, .cat, etc.). This year we have put on sale a lot of new extensions and each extension manager decides the price of the domain extension.

Search for a domain here CDmon.com the price for that domain with different extensions, if new.

Domains with words of great value

There are numerous markets where you can buy domains containing words of great value. If also the domain and the extension becomes a meaningful sentence, the value is even higher (in English call "domain hacks"). For example: www.aero.taxi is for sale at Sedo for $ 699.

Some of the major trading markets domains are:

Here you will find a tool that will search "domain hacks" related to what you want: Domain Hack

A domain with history

Typically your site already has a history, if your reputation is good, this is also payable.

To see the history of the domain, you can access: Archive.org

To know the reputation of a domain, look at: Majestic SEO

A domain with history and good reputation is worth at least 1,000 euros.

The value of your domain depend on the years you have and the Trustflow and Citationflow assign you Majestic.com

How users a website worth?

Visits to a website can make them profitable advertising and affiliate programs. To find the value of the advertising potential of your website calculates the following:

1) Number of visits. For example 100,000 visits per month.

2) Page views per user. For example 4 pages per visit (see your Google Analytics).

3) Monthly Pageviews. Current will tell you the your Google Analytics, but if what you want is to make a prediction, then multiplied visits you think you have, the pages visited per user.

With Adsense you can win 20 € per 100,000 page views (nothing fancy ... but that's how things)

With affiliate programs you'll find the Zanox (www.zanox.es), with 100,000 visits you can check about 750 € (calculated with conversion rate of 3%, 4 page views per user, and collection of 1 € per contact achieved).

So more or less, with a page of 25,000 users, generating 100,000 page views per month, you can check 770 €, per year this will be 9,240 €. The value of this type of website as this variable is calculated by multiplying 3 its annual turnover, so the page value would be: 27,720 €

The market segment they belong

If your users belong to a market segment that is appreciated by advertisers. For example, women aged 25 to 45 years interested in cosmetics. Then the price can increase dramatically advertising may reach 20 € per 1000 page views.

How much is a database?

Los datos de contacto de un grupo de usuarios se pagan entre 0,45€ y 0,60€ por registro, es decir, por nombre, apellidos, email, como mínimo. Súmale 0,7€ por cada criterio de segmentación que puedas ofrecer (edad, ciudad, idioma, IP, etc.). Si consigues sacarle provecho cada mes, multiplica el valor por 12 y luego, como en el caso de la facturación por publicidad, multiplica el resultado por 3 años (la teoría es que el comprador, sin hacer nada, debería poder sacarle el mismo rendimiento que tú, los próximos 3 años).

Remember that the Data Protection Act prohibits you from selling data from your users, so this is the value if signing over the company and the data were valued as assets. You have to monetize with advertising or sponsored messages.

How much does the audience on social networks?

This is easy to calculate because you can know if you approach it from the point of view of how much it costs you to advertise on social networks and get more followers.

Twitter and Facebook, a follower cost about 1 €. So if you have 1,000 followers, your network has a value of 1,000 €. Again, segmentation or a special public can make up this price.

With all this data, you can calculate the value of your website or so.

On the internet you will find a lot of websites that calculate the value of your website. checking that they normally have in Alexa position (and with that know about traffic you have) and on that basis calculate the advertising performance you could get. But they do not take into account other variables we have discussed here ... so I would not trust a lot of these tools.

Make your calculations and see the result.

Although entrepreneurial advice and eBusiness specialist teacher.

  1. A website is worth what you are willing to sell to you charge for. You have to start thinking: if I pay 1,000 € I sell it? No. If I pay € 10,000 I sell it? Maybe. If I pay 100,000 me sell it? Yes. Well wing, you have a price range. Refines and find the value you give to your website.
  2. A web worth what someone is willing to pay for it. The willingness to buy from people and businesses is not always rational. So although calculated as we have done in this article value is one, someone may be willing to pay more for it. Or less ... given the case.

The final value of your website which will consider 3 things: the asset value, the value you give it, and the value that gives a prospective buyer. I hope this article has been helpful.

Changes in the algorithm of Google - Adsense Farm Update

Adsense Farm UpdateThis week Google has surprised us with drastic changes in its algorithm.

Some changes in its algorithm, on a regular basis is something that Google has accustomed us. Every month, Google seeks to keep improving search results and will neutralize "shortcuts" that take some SEO, and refine the results. But this time, the change has been dramatic and as Google itself, affects 12% of the results of the search pages.

The purpose of the change is to lower the positioning of pages devoted to copy or add mass content of others, without contributing anything new, then include in your site a large number of ads Google or other affiliate programs.

The truth is that the network began to be flooded with pages whose sole purpose was to show ads (which on the other hand, the vast majority were from Google itself). In many cases these pages, original content, and riddled with advertising, appeared in the top of the searches because their creators, aware of all SEO techniques, had managed to make it so. In English this kind of page is called "Adsense farm". Hence this is the algorithm update has popularly dubbed the "Adsense Farm Update”.

According to Google, its engineers have been working for over a year to find a way to neutralize the strength of these web pages, and it seems that with the new algorithm lon has achieved ... The question that arises now is how exactly has been modified the algorithm and what Google is taking into account when determining whether a site has original content or not.

Compare indexes created from scanning pages is already what he was doing at the moment when discern what was considered duplicate content (and punishable) and what not. But when one copy only part of a page, he included in his, and fill the rest with ads, is something that is not detectable from the simple comparison of indices simply why the word list that includes the page is different and original about that you copied. So Google has had to find another way to do it.

By reading forums SEO parece que el resto de profesionales están también preguntándose qué es lo que ha cambiado exactamente, y aunque especulan sobre diversas posibilidades, ninguna parece concluyente. En algunos casos, incluso ha cundido el pánico entre gente que practicaba el Adsense Farming y algunos indican que han perdido un 40% de su tráfico.

Desde mi punto de vista, lo más lógico sería que el cambio consistiese en que ahora Google es capaz de reconocer párrafos enteros (no palabras sueltas) que han sido publicados en otros sitios, y puede conocer qué contenido fue indexado primero. También me parece lógico pensar que Google sabe perfectamente cómo reconocer el código fuente de páginas web que son granjas de Adwords (precisamente porqué el código es suyo) y por lo tanto puede hacer énfasis en el control del contenido de este tipo de páginas.

In any case, we are not doing these practices can be calm because this change should not adversely affect, if not the opposite. Our websites should gain positions on the search results pages.

Hopefully a few days, see if someone manages to decipher the change and discovered exactly what it is.

The official announcement of the change in the Google algorithm we can read in your blog notifications: Adsense Farm Update.

Adwords and Adsense Google now also on the mobile phone

I just read that Google is testing AdSense for mobile applications, designed to be read from iPhones and from phones that use Android.

Until now, you could only hire Adwords searches on Google from mobile devices, but not Adsense (Google ads on web pages that belong to the Google content network). It seems that this will change.

In the video I show below these lines we can see one of the developers of software for advanced mobile phone, talking about how wonderful it will be able to insert ads into their applications.

The truth is that I feel a little divided about it. On the one hand, I am delighted that software developers and content for mobile phones will have a good way to monetize their applications, which hopefully result in offering free content to the user community. On the other hand, I feel bad that mobile browsing becomes an obstacle to try to move avoiding advertising ...
