    Just been playing around on Estibot, now i know you can't quite take their estimates as solid valuations but i am concerned that if you take for example collecting.co.uk is coming up at a value of only reg fee but collecting.org.uk is coming up at $2000.

    Also like people.co.uk is coming up at $360 now people.org.uk is coming up at a staggering $180,000 (180k) Erm :confused::confused::confused:

    Am i missing something or is Estibot just way out !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Estibot worked out on of my top domains which hits thousands of uniques a day, and million+ of page views each month at about $50-60 I can't remember what it was exactlly.

    About as accurate as USAF's bombing. Friendly Fire eh.

    Thought it would be a load of cr*p !
    I guess the only way for a true appraisal is to pay good money for one :?:

    I dont know if paying for one is worth while, yes maybe it could help with a sale, not something I have ever done. Has anyone here? Did it ever make a difference to a buyer??

    It may make you feel that someone else believes in your product, but one appraisal today could be different in a week/month!

    Hi Doodle bug

    Although Estibot is not perfect it does have its uses, I find their keyword parser excellent when needing to strip domains down to there keywords

    I think the problem you have experienced lies with a bug in the single appraisals section where it cannot distinguish between .org and .org.uk

    I ran them through the bulk appraisal and this was what came up


    Domain......................Appraisal
    people.co.uk...............$120,000
    people.org.uk..............$80
    people.org..................$180,000
    collecting.co.uk...........$1,700
    collecting.org.uk......... $0
    collecting.org..............$2,500


    Regards John

    It's so confusing :confused:
    Maybe work out the values yourself using DNJournal etc.
    Thanks for the replies.
    I think all popular one word generic .org.uks' can hit xxx at least.

    Any automated system dealing with objective data will be highly subjective - and for the most part highly inaccurate...
    Plus I don't think they know enough about the .uk market to plug-in figures that reflect the value of our domains!
