    Hi guys,

    I've been a lurker for quite a few months, but i decided to register on the
    forums today [​IMG] some of you guys are quite a friendly bunch (from surfing
    around earlier).

    I'm just a little curious (actually very, very intrigued) though. I was
    searching for a old thread i read some time back on the forum via google and
    i spotted that that this site** is worth *$15,303,960* from this url
    *************
    Seriously? that's pretty damn impressive in my books. Must be you guys
    posting everyday and contributing. anyway, just thought you guys might want
    to know... yes i heard web 2.0 and community is priceless but that's
    errrr... is seriously wild. I wonder if it was calculated like a dollar a
    post or something.

    ok i gotta fix my sig... so much for being tech stupid.

    regards,
    Jeb

    those sites are quite random, they evaluate domain names with random factors like the amount of results you get on google, the sites linking in, the global ranking, etc.
    but it's not realistic at all. so dont get your hopes up about getting a share of the $15M [​IMG]

    Wow... that's a lot. Apparently as of February, there was a huge amount of new people coming on the site.
    This site was rated 0 stars. I just gave it 5/5. Tempers, do the same.

    5/5 now [​IMG]

    I doubt the site is worth that much in reality though. Checked with another site and it was around 15,000$ [​IMG]

    Costello, do you make profit off this site? or just enough to pay the server?

    15 thousand or 15 million, that's still a lot.
    As of now, there are 6 5/5 ratings!! [​IMG]

    They needed ads a while back to pay for the server, so I don't think they're making much profit.
    I don't know how much the get from ShopTemp...

    Profits? Have you SEEN Costello's mansion?

    I mean, this website is worth $15 mil, but it's still not owned by CNet, and that's saying something!
