Getting $1.75-$3/day on a name on BODIS. How would you value such a traffic name?

    I recently bought a name mainly due to the fact that it was previously a large Asian drama streaming site. It's still kept a lot of its backlink profile (1.5 million links) and the full TLD alone is searched 1,000,000/month so I thought I'd park it. So far the stats are pretty good but I was wondering what kind of value it can get if I want to sell it. I might want to keep the name since it's making consistent money from type-in traffic but just want to see what people thought.

    The type-in traffic is very consistent and not going down anytime soon as there are thousands of "copy cat" sites from my domain which was the original with the same name on a different extension.

    I got the name on the 13th so here are the past few days, with today not yet complete (should be around $3 today). I'll update the thread later with just todays earnings so that you can see what an individual days traffic looks like.

    I'm expecting it to earn $800 to $1k per year in revenue with Bodis on this name alone. What multiple is normally used? Is it 12X monthly earnings or 24X?

    Its usually 12x but with something passive like this, I don't see why you shouldnt go for 24x

    I mostly sell my traffic domains for 12/13x because of some unexcepted situations (google updates etc). This CTR looks a bit too big. Update after month please ;).

    Hi

    you should keep the name at least 6 months, before even thinking of selling
    as, buyers of such names will want to see some historical data.

    imo...

    Here are the stats starting July 13th. Mind you I only got the name at around 7PM on the 13th so it should not be considered a full day. Also today is the 25th and there are still several hours left in the day. Current stats also will be shown for today (day isn't finished) should end at $2.50ish. As you can see from the referral statistics, almost all revenue is coming directly from type-in traffic. Discounting the 13th and the 25th as both days are incomplete, this domain is averaging closer to $2/day consistently.

    July 13-25th Revenue: [​IMG]


    July 13th to 25th Referral traffic: [​IMG]


    July 25th as of approximately 4:00am EST earnings: [​IMG]


    July 25th as of approximately 4:00am EST referrals: [​IMG]



    In terms of the CTR. There was a comment stating that it appeared too high, if you do research on the domain it was previously one of the largest Asian Drama streaming sites on the planet. There are thousands of copy cat sites so it makes sense if people are still looking for it and/or clicking the links to get directed to an alternative like Viki.com.

    The term "Drama Cool" has a Search Volume of 1,000,000/mo and a CPC of $1.08. It's still very popular due to all the copy cat sites of the same name.
