    The average number of backlins from major search engines:
    integralighting.com www.integralighting.com
    849 Backlinks 1,036



    Do you think alot of that is from your website being in your description.

    I really do not have any clue as to how they calculate the value or the effect that having your URL link in your signature line here would help. It surely cannot hurt.

    I attach a url link to my site on all emails, and pretty much anywhere I have the opportunity. It only makes sense that if you have a website you might as well get it looked at.

    Also, make sure you sign up and allow google analytics to process your site stats. It used to be really easy, now you have to embed a bunch of html code into each page of your site. I had my webmaster do this so that I could make full use of adwords etc.

    "This value is represents the approximate value of the website entered. Of course, this value does NOT include the worth of the company behind the website but rather is an estimated value of the website itself. Some of these valuation factors include: PageRank, traffic, backlinks, age of the domain, directory listings, and other items not shown in the summary above."



    I've had my domain name since 1999. Probably a big factor.

    So, maybe one lesson is to pick your domain name carefully and stick with it.

    It is pretty much a hit and link based formula with a dollar value tied to each.

    This may be an interesting calculator, but it is pretty useless - especially since their valuations seem so whacky.

    The true value of your website can be estimated if you track the revenue that it generates - both directly and indirectly, both in the short term and long term. More on this later.
