Thank you for your question.
What the developer was paid is not relevant, what the site earns is a factor.
"The way a domain name value or website value is calculated depends on some specific factors. As a matter of fact a domain name value or website value is calculated by looking carefully into some important information which are available online and the most important factors are: Unique Daily Visitors, Page Views, Google Page Rank, Alexa Rank, Compete Rank, Quantcast, Backlinks, Social mentions on sites such as Twitter and Bookmarking on Delicious, Digg, StumbelUpon, Reddit etc…"
I hope this information is helpful.
Interesting. That site uses fewer factors than the one I linked to originally. These are both estimates, and a more solid valuation would have to come from a professional appraiser.
I disagree with that analysis. A sole proprietorship can still have a value for goodwill which can be estimated based on how much revenue is generated by the website both through the business it generates and the ad revenue it generates.
What is the purpose of the valuation?
Which State is this in?
I am sorry, I will have to opt out and ask the moderators to move this thread over to the Canada law experts.
