Estimate Your Website Value

There’s a lot of free tools to check your website value. However, results are not always convincing. Try to appraise your site value here This is how we estimate website value: Value Based on Estimated Website Online Traffic Calculation (Current Keyword Volume Estimated Traffic X Average Keyword Cost Per Click / Current Keyword SERP Position) (30 days) – (Website Maintenance Cost) = Website Estimated Monthly Value (CKVET X AKCPC / CKSP) (30) – (WMC) = WEMV Value Based on Monthly Monetisation Revenue + Monthly Estimated Traffic Value Current Monthly Monetisation Revenue – Website Monthly Maintenance Cost + Website Estimated Monthly Value = Website Estimated Value CMMR – WMMC + METV = WEMV

First, you need to list all your current website keyword rankings and get the keywords volume. Determine each keyword cost per click (CPC) and multiply by its current estimated traffic then divide it through current keyword SERP position and multiply the results by 30 as the number of days for the whole month. Let’s say you ranked for the keyword “website optimisation”, the CPC cost for that keyword is 20.82 per click and the current estimated traffic volume based on Semrush is 50 then your current keyword SERP position is at 60 so your total estimated value for that keyword is 520.5.

Let us calculate: Value Based on Estimated Website Online Traffic Calculation: (50 * 20.82 / 60) * (30) = 520.5 Let’s assume; if you got a huge list of keyword rankings on SERP that have a high CPC value, then you have a much better chance to achieve your desired price from your buyer.
