    Just ran across this article. A site Cyberwyre can estimate the value of a web site. They listed MacRumors as a net worth of over $2 Million. Good job Arn!

    Looky

    Make that 2 - I luves me mojitos.

    Now, back to that $2 million - let's split based on number of posts - but all members with fewer than 500 posts are excluded!

    They're valuing sites based on hits/ratings and ad revenue.

    I don't know your business, but if it's just a site selling your services then it won't be valued very highly by this system. No matter how much your business away from the internet is worth.

    Not surprising really. Ad revenue is £0 per annum.

    So how much of that $2 million is due to the Jew's post rate?

    Exactly. Their rating is only rating the worth of the website itself as a means of generating revenue. MacRumours doesn't offer anything tangible, and yet it's safe to assume Arn makes a bit of $$$$

    It says my not-even-complete web site is worth $58.

    I'd say this "evaluator" is full of it.

    My blog was worth 58$. But ESPN was only worth 169$.

    but then Mad Jew gets almost all of it and the rest of us just get a few cents.
