I often check Estibot.com and Valuate.com which is powered by Estibot in order to research domain name appraisal. Its features such as exact match search, cost per click, ad competition and other factors are worthy of consideration. Most of the Domainers take clue from such appraisal tools and adjust their domain prices accordingly.
Well, it happened today. I checked Bitcoin.com Domain appraisal at Estibot.com and I was surprised to get this result as shown in this screen shot.
Certainly, no one will ever agree with this sort of valuation for a killer domain like Bitcoin.com. A Domain which is worth more than a million dollar doesn’t deserve such a bad rating.
On the other hand, FreeValuator.com appraises Bitcoin.com at $42,456.56 which is much better than Estibot but still too low compare to its market value. We know that couple of months ago HeritageAuction.com was involved in Brokering Bitcoins.com and were expecting $750K in sale. If Bitcoins.com was expected to bring $750k then certainly the Bitcoin.com domain is worth more than bitcoins.com name.
Sometime it happens Estibot doesn’t properly recognizes the word or combination of words. I’ve a domain Howtobuild.org and Estibot reads it wrongly as “Howto build” and shows an exact match 26 searches only where as the Google keyword tool shows more than 1800 searches.
So, I thought Estibot tool may not be reading the word Bitcoin properly and I checked the other details as follows:
Average Monthly Search Stats – Exact Match – [bitcoin]
Cost Per Click:$1.18 USD
All data seems is OK above. But, still how come $130 valuation for a domain with 300,000+ searches and CPC above $1?
