    As some of you know I have quite a few geo/service/product domains (getting on for 200 and all almost live !! :D ) and are a long term investment and for a regular monthly income.

    Questions are - Has anyone sold a mini site on this type of domain and how much did it go for.?

    If a site is developed and is on page 1 of G for say 5 top keyword phrases amoungst other things e.g. below... What would you expect to pay for or buy it for?

    • LeedsCycles.co.uk
    • Earns on average - £0.30 to £.80 per day from Adsense
    • On page one for e.g. "leeds cycle shops", "Bike shops in Leeds", "Leeds cycles", "Kids bikes in Leeds"
    • 1 year old and has 100 pages indexed in Google

    I'd never sell mine in the next 2 years but just a pondering thought i.e. 200 x £??????? ;)

    Cheers

    GDG

    The general yardstick for value based on earnings that seems to be accepted (at the minute & in the current climate) is 24-48 months earnings, without taking the domain name's inherent value into account.

    So a site on a "reg fee" domain making £0.50 per day would be valued at £360 - £720 using this method - and £1 a day earnings would be circa £700 to £1400. Obviously if the domain has a higher inherent generic value this would need to be factored in as well.

    I'm not saying I necessarily agree with the above btw, but this seems to be one accepted valuation among the larger resellers.

    What do you mean? The domain is only worth a regg fee or it's just been registered as I wouldn't say GEO/service domains are just worth £6.

    Thanks for the reply ;)

    I mean that the revenue would be added to the generic value of the domain (in an ideal world).

    By a "reg fee" domain I mean one without an obviously domain only value over the reg fee - like JohnnysBikes.co.uk.

    I don't honest know enough about Geo+Service domains in the UK to be able to hazard any meaningful guess to the value of the domain name alone, but if significant numbers of people are looking for it then it's obviously not "reg fee".

    Overall I mean:
    value of domain with revenue = inherent domain value + 24-48 times revenue.

    So Mortgages.co.uk earning £5 a day is not going to be the same as JohnnysBikes.co.uk earning £5 per day.

    I've got nothing against newly regged domains - I do it all the time myself!

    Ty means that if the domain is worth more than reg fee then the site would worth "domain value" + "x earnings"

    Although if it is on, eg wordpress, then most of those pages would be tags?

    Yes thats right but many searches and click throughs are from "tag" pages I've found on a lot of mine. Thats why I said 100 pages as they are still indexed pages by Google.

    It's just like any other WP install mini site and was just an example spec. ;)

    Just trying to put a value on such domains/mini sites, because if you have 200 all performing it would be an idea to put a low ball mark price on them for an overall value.
