Understanding Domain Appraisal Tools

These tools are basically a smart way for your site valuation and help you figure out the accurate estimation of an Internet domain name. The domain appraisal tools look at different factors for a particular domain name, some value the site traffic, search engine listing or age. These tools can be very helpful for those people who are willing to buy domain names or to those who want to consider a site for ad-placement!

How the Domain Appraisal Tools work

The domain name valuation done by the appraisers is based on the follow key factors.

  • Age of the Domain Name: This is the top factors which the domain appraisers consider while weighing a domain.
  • Memorability: An easy to remember domain gets more value, appraisers also analyze the meanings, number of the words and the pronunciation of the domain.
  • Top Level Domain: The “dot com” are always considered as the top level domain names. But this doesn’t always come into play, so don’t worry!
  • Recent Traffic: Alexa traffic is also considered by the appraisers while valuation.
  • SEO and Popularity: This is one of the key factors that can even sometimes beat all the factors that are mentioned above, there are some of the domain names having funny names that don’t have any specific meanings i.e having a site value of $53,703 USD.

If you are a publisher, these are the tools which you must consider for optimizing your site!

    I use Estibot all the time but was not aware of the other sites you mention. I will try them soon. And I just wanted to mention that there is some domain name appraisal scams going on that people need to be aware of. Do some searches and you should find many reports about it. The main thing you need to remember is that anyone selling a domain should NEVER, EVER pay for an appraisal because some seller says they are going to pay you thousands of dollars and all you need to do is get an appraisal first. If they tell you that, it is always a scam. Please tell others about this as there are many people that are losing money from this scam. Thanks!
