I came across this site (http://bizinformation.org/uk/)today which tells you how much your website is worth depending on external links, visits per day etc. I wouldn't take it too seriously but it's worth a look for a laugh! Mine's only worth about $2,000, how about yours?! Shall we see who's sitting on the biggest internet fortune in the Crafts Forum!!?

That's a random page to come across! Mine is 1,168.27! But how bizarre the image on the right is of my 1st attempt at my site it doesn't look anything like that now!

Nevermind girls maybe next year we will be on the front page!x

3,176.4 for mine. The other information e.g. hits per day etc are of interest though

MMMM, that is about as much use as a chocolate teapot!

Doesn't give very accurate visitor listings, it says we have less than 10 a day, when we get more orders a day than that?

Fun though:)

Edited to add: Sorry, I sound like a wet blanket, when it's just a bit of fun.
I looked up my site on Alexa recently, and that wasn't very accurate either.

I shall rain on your parade!! My website is a lowly one page holding station (www.kryshees.com (http://www.kryshees.com)) and came to a value of......

1,134.07!!! How???

But worth a giggle!:)

What a hoot!! I looked up our first website that has been around since 2000 and has masses of hits/links etc. and it was valued at 1200, our second launched three years ago with slightly fewer hits/links was worth 4500, a third domain name that we own but have never used was valued at 1400 and the blogspot which was only started last year and gets no traffic by comparison is apparently worth 22,000!!!!!

I don't think so.........where do they get their information? :confused:

OMG I'm a millionaire!!!!!!!!!
Is this make impoverished grannies happy week?
My Annie the Pedlar site comes in at 3,770,000.
No wonder I'm upset about Little Chile, It's only 1,354.42. Don't you just love the 42 pence?
And much the same for Class History and the Tudor Market. Pathetic!
What's Annie got that the others haven't and if I'm so rich where's the money? :D

My website (very much still in the 'under construction stage) is apparenlty worth 1,372.08 and my blog is $2,126.6 (which, at today's rate, is roughly the same as my website).

Oh well, back to the drawing board to raise them up a few more dollars/pounds.

My website's worth 3888.60 - apparently.:confused:

If anyone would like to buy it, I'll let you have it for the knock-down price of 3800. A bargain, surely?;)

By the way, the related stats are completely to pot.

As a completely non techie, bemused, ponderer it seems to me the worth goes up with each year your website has been 'up'. Obviously it's counting visits but also obviously you'll have more visists the more years your site has been there. No?

I've been completely uninterested in the stats for my sites because what really matters is am I getting orders in or helping people find what they are looking for but your comment that these stats are skew wify has ignited my curiosity. What's an easy way (this one was good, I can manage just typing in website addresses) of finding out the truth?
There's a Google thingy, isn't there?

AnnieAnna

I find looking at my stats can help with marketing, where the visits are coming from, which search keywords are used etc.

Google analytics are pretty good

Hi Jane,
Google Analytics asks me to sign up. What would I be signing up for?

AnnieAnna
who won't sign up for nottin' unless she knows what the catch is.

Enfys

If you sign up for Google and use their Webmaster tools, they give you all sorts of info about your site that will help you get better Google ratings.

And its all free!

AnnieAnna
08-03-2010, 11:30 AM
FREE!
I'm sold.

Ah...free at the cost of frying my brains with their terms and conditions.
If ever there was a case for the Plain English Campaign that is it.

OK I've done it but it wasn't as easy as the skew wiffy website in the first post. I think I must be HTML phobic. Is there a society for that? ;)

Will I be able to analyse my analytics?

AnnieAnna
Repeating this matra to myself. I'm an intelligent woman. I have a ology in Art. I can do this.

I don't understand this at all...

My shop is worth 1,331.71
My magazine website is worth 1,153.41 (and I have no idea how thats less than featherleft)
And my professional website is worth 1164.63

I even checked them on their various web addresses and it came up the same! The only things that changed were the stats stuff and I have no idea what that meant!

p.s. google analytics - i'm signed up and it tells me noones visited my site even though i know they have! I just don't understand!

Have you verified your site with analytics? You have to paste hmtl code in a certain place on your site, it will tell you on analytics when your site has been verified correctly. Until then it wont show you any stats

Apparantly my site is worth 14,185.51! Not bad considering it's only been running for 2 weeks. I'd accept any offers over 13,000......

Another plus side you can compare it to your comeptitors sites. Mine was worth 3k more - Yay!

AnnieAnna

Hi Katie, I've got the same thing with one of my sites. At first I was so depressed - all that work and nobody looking - then someone complimented me on it so I'm assuming she looked first :) and it's still showing as no visits.

They say my site is worth 6,842.27. Mind you I have checked on various international valuation sites and it varies between about 50p an 1500.00 so I never know what to believe. As I am in an optimistic mood this week I'll give it the benefit of the doubt.

I wonder if this can be called a taxable asset by the tax man. I really hope not, thinking about that gets me all hot and bothered......:mf:

They wouldnt even value my URL (I cant state it yet on here!!!) but my shop on EBAY gets 2.4 million pages views per annum so perhaps when I get the website finished and get the customers to use it instead of EBAY I'll be worth a couple of hundred dollars!

quite fun, shame the visitor listings aren't more accurate as it would be great to know exactly what competitors sites are like!

number of external links is very useful though

26-02-2011, 05:29 PM
My jewellery website is apparently worth 1289.48. Yet our guinea pig care website, that we don't really promote, is worth 1341.32!
