    I found this interesting site, which gives you a price number as to what they believe your site is worth.

    here's mine:
    The following domain name appraisal is an estimate on the domain worth of virtualpetlist.com. This is only an estimate, and actual site worth on the open domain or website marketplace may vary significantly. While each appraisal represents a snapshot of the domain value on a given day, it is only that, a snapshot, so be sure to check back frequently to see if your sites value goes up or down over time.

    Worth: $13,745.4
    Take the test here http://www.urlappraisal.net/

    It's very inaccurate my site(thepokertalk.com) is worth $12,232.79 according to that site.

    I have no idea what metrics they're using to come up with those numbers, but there's no way the sites would sell for that much. It's showing my cooking site going for almost $6k and that's just impossible.

    They just base the results on things like pr, number of backlinks, pages indexed ect ect.

    Good for a bit of fun, but in no means useful :)

    It's only useless if your site doesn't make any revenue, has no links, its an alright figure though I would say.

    Mine has a revenue and it's still not worth anywhere near $5k in my opinion. Even with good rankings, there's just no way someone would pay that right now.

    It's kind of like looking at coin collecting value books... They'll quote a high price, but it doesn't mean jack if there's no one out there actually willing to pay that high.

    Ha, ya I suppose to some extent. :)
    Some of those sites will actually give you some decent info on your domain, age, top links, dmoz listed etc etc..

    but there are more factors in valuing a site then just an algorithm based on the url.

    Your domain is a top of the line really. Especially with "Reality tv", check this data out:
    Google adwords search:

    Reality tv receives about 450k searches monthly.
    That's a really good keyword ;)
