I got an email for domain estimator about my best performing blog. It states the site value as:
1. Appraised Value - $37,083
2. Wholesale Value - $27,813
3. Monetized Value - $1,686 per day
Can someone explain what this all means? Does it mean I can sell my blog for the above mentioned $$s?

Some people might call that email a sales ploy. Others might even consider it spam.
Just ask yourself a simple question: does your site actually make $1,686 per day in advertising revenue?
If the answer is yes, then maybe this domain estimator (one of hundreds that essentially just makes a guess based on incloncusive information such as Alexa rank) really does know the market value of your site and what someone would be willing to pay for it. Congratulations. This would probably be the only time in history that a domain estimator actually got it right.
If the answer is no, then I think you can judge for yourself how realistic these figures are.
By the way, you can't technically sell a site you don't own. Blogspot.com is owned by google, you just have an account with them called caroleeskitchen. That should also give you a clue as to the reliability of this domain estimator.
In case anyone is interested in buying tussin.hubpages.com (which I actually can't legally sell), here is what my subdomain is worth according to this domain estimator:
Appraised value: $$108,138
Wholesale value: $$81,803
Monetized value: $$4915/day
Wowee, who knew I was sitting on such a gold mine.

lol lol, now I asked for explanation because I thought that maybe I was missing something. I knew I could not sell blogspot, that is why I thought maybe I was seeing things and the figures did not mean actual money.
I launched a website two days ago and is now valued at $28, page rank 1, which is crazy.
Why can't you sell your account? You transfer username and password upon payment.
Can't sell a blogspot account. I know I can sell my own domain.
Why can you not sell the username and password? I know many individuals that sell gamer accounts as a full time income. You remove any affiliate codes and transfer the log in information, same as Hubpages.
The problem with these domain value calculators is that they give different values. You may check another and will give something less or high
I had no idea this was going on. I have never seen it before, hence my naivety.
But I think the best which can give you a real value is flippa.com and that if you want to sell your domain
It is meaningless. You can't actually sell it for that value. IMHO sites are worth what they earn or what they can be sold for and that is all.
Hey Cardisa, one of mine is actually worth about Appraised Value: $221,162, Wholesale Value: $165,871, and Monetized Value: $10,053 /day.
Now that is insane, because I earn nothing off of it, and get very little traffic if anything. I have no clue what all this means in real life, but if anyone is looking to buy my domain for that much. Yikes I will jump to the occasion LOL.
I hovered over each keyword there for "Appraised", "Wholesale", and "Monetized Value" and it tells us what each truly means, in terms of how they have come up with each value approximation, and it is basically based on similar keywords that exist on and within your domain I do believe. Go back and try it, if you haven't yet Cardisa.
Wow, the appraised value of my hubpages subdomain is $522k, wholesale value of $391k and daily monetised value of $24k per day. Which utterly ridiculous.
As others have said, the value of a site is what a buyer would be willing to pay for it (and you have to be able to sell it anyway). One of the standard valuation methods however is income multiple. Reasonable income multiples are anywhere between 1 and 10 times annual profits. So if you get advertising revenue of say $500 per month, that is $6,000 per year, which values your site at anything from $6k to $60k. But you've still got to find a willing buyer, which in the online world may be difficult unless it is a very big site.

I'd be really interested to hear if you have any experience using this site. It seems really easy to use but is WIX a good long term solution for a small operation? I need a shopping cart.Thanks in advance!
