Hi All, I know this may seem like a closely guarded secret - but - we all want to help each other, hence being on here in the first place? I need the help of seasoned analysts and domainers. What I would like to know (from as many people as possible) is the following: 1. How do you go about valuing a domain? (Please - if possible don't just say Estibot.com or GoDaddy valuations). 2. If not included above, what is your personal methodology - and what do you place the most value on? (e.g. syllables, length, hyphens, numbers, extension). 3. What data/databases do you use to help with your personal domain valuation? 4. Do grammatical issues/spelling mistakes deter you? Feel free to comment on this. 5. Anything I may have missed - general comments on domain valuation and appraisal that would help. Let me explain why I am doing this - my company has recently branched out into more virtual property investment etc. I have a background in software development etc for some time. I am wanting to create a valuation tool that is based on human learning to allow people to get very quick / very accurate domain valuation and appraisal based on the merits of each domain. I plan to make use of all manner of data and database to help with this, along with advanced data mining techniques. I want to help people find real treasure in the domaining industry. We have a few projects that we feel would really benefit domainers. These will be announced firstly on NamePros as I believe in this forum for the Domaining industry. Anyone who makes a significant contribution to this here (or via PM if you really feel you don't want to share your "secrets") will receive early beta access / future contributor access to the tool. Looking forward to reading everyone's contributions. Thanks in advance.
