Any idea of a valuation for FruitCakeRecipe.co.uk?
It has 18.1k global and 5.4 local exacts
Traffic is important but so are commercial viability and ultimately an end user... Some think I’ll reg that stick”A” up as it’s the generic or emd etc sell a few items via affiliate etc
But when broken down associated items commissions and conversion rates, product “A” being low value, not a natural web product etc... Even if you had them all its unlikely to cover hosting and registration development time etc Just means there not worth the transfer fees… ok to play with learn about seo, hosting, affiliate etc just no real world value..
Agree it's difficult -
There are advertisers on Google
In order to rank on the first few pages, you are up against authentic, longstanding authority sites like bbc, bbcgoodfood, channel 4, deliaonline & you tube videos. Thats got to be some good competition for any niche?
I'm working on a similar domain at the moment - SalsaRecipe.co.uk
This has 8,400 locals / 74,000 globals
I'm on page one but namealot is 100% - why would an end user pick SalsaRecipe.co.uk over Delia or BBC Good Food?
I've worked very hard on meta description to make it as tantalizing as possible and I'm on page one, but with 10,000 searches, only 200 visits.
My mexican recipes site is #3 in google and in 10,000 searches, I have 1,000 visits.
With your site at #1 with a good meta description, expect around 40% CTR.
I recently ranked cheesesauce.co.uk to be #1 in the UK and States and at it's peak, it earned around £25 per month.
Value wise for your domain - I'd say £xx, a ranked site that's earning £20-30 per month - maybe £300...
Thanks for that PoshTiger, I'll bear it in mind when I start site building.
Which part of Nottm are you from, I lived there for about 30 years and have lots of friends and family there.
