    Can anyone give me some tips on finding out the value of a forum before you put it up for sale.

    I'm aware of site valuing sites such as http://www.siteprice.org but 'm not sure I trust those.

    Or would you just auction it or what?

    Have you got anything to suggest a value? Adsense revenue? Subscriptions being bought by members? Affiliates?

    Forum monthly revenue x 12 = Good Site Value

    Surely that might be the annual site value?

    But then if I am not monetizing to it's full potential, what the current revenue is would not have a realistic bearing on its actual value.

    Why are you not monetizing it to its potential? Do you want to sell to a corporation who's going to fill it with ads and ruin usability?

    Mostly because I don't have the time, it's more of a hobby and fun (or was fun) for me so that was never a priority.

    My research says it's very dependent on your niche, market of buyers, and your time online.

    Worthofweb.com has a calculator but this could be significantly more or less.
