How Much Is Your Site Worth?
Have you ever wondered how much your web site is worth? Ann Smarty, author from Search Engine Journal and professional search engine optimization consultant, asked her readers just that, in an article titled, How Much Might Your Website Be Worth? The article provides some basic formulas and scenarios that can help you determine how much you should ask for your web site if one day you decide on selling it.
Regardless of the different formulas available, really the amount of money you can get for your web site is equal to the amount that someone is willing to pay. “The overall mathematician approach can be criticized as each website is unique and it can’t be evaluated by a simple formula.” Ann Smarty Said, and later continued, “My favorite method of determining how much a website it worth is the one by Yaro Starak.”
Yaro Starak is a young entrepreneur from Australia. Yaro has created, managed and sold several different Internet businesses since 1998. Yaro commonly says, “Your site is worth as much as someone is willing to give you for it.” which in my opinion makes sense. To me, it doesn’t matter how much a house appraises for, if the price isn’t right, or at an amount in which I feel it’s worth, I won’t buy it. The same would apply with a web site.
Twitter Attempts To Reduce Spam
In other news, it seems that Twitter is attempting to make an effort to better control spam by placing a limit on the number of people you can befriend. Brent Csutoras, author of a personal blog that provides information related to social media, Online marketing and search engine optimization, covered a story about the event. It seems that Twitter now limits following to 2000 people.
Brent Csutoras explains that he discovered this limit when doing some maintenance on his account, “I noticed this over the weekend when working on one of my accounts. I have had the account a long time and it has a high natural follower count, but found myself limited when I hit the 2,000 number of people I was following.” I think it is great that Twitter is making efforts towards preventing spam, but also too it would be great to see more efforts made towards the stability of their system. I can’t tell you how many times I have seen Twitter offline or have various program errors.
