View Full Version : Serebii.net is worth $1,268,904

I own multiple websites, and I know a thing or two about the internet industry. I just want to let everyone know that Serebii.net (the domain name) could be worth around $1,268,904 (or more). Check this out to see what I mean: http://leapfish.com/domain_name_appraisal.php?url=serebii.net. Serebii is into the money now, but I'm sure he generates a ton of revenue from Google AdSense considering all the traffic Serebii.net gets ;)

Is that accurate?

If it is...woah. That's a fair bit of money...

Haris
28th January 2007, 5:44 PM
Yes, if Serebii.net was sold it would probably fetch $xxx,xxx figures. Not that Serebii would want to sell it, since he's probably making $xxx every day from Google AdSense.

I just typed in a few other sites. It's worth more than Nick.com, Neopets.com, CartoonNetwork.com, Nintendo.com, Whitehouse.org, NationalGeographic.com, and about 95 X MORE than Pokemon.com

definately, it is worth more than that, i typed in zewrzertsdftaaw4w4a5t.com on that thing and it said that it is worth $14 o_O

Edit: I typed it again and now it says $0.00.
this place on that link is loco O_o

But Serebii, you must generate some nice revenue from AdSense daily, correct? Maybe in the region of $xxx a day ;)?

Actually this second site is a bit strange.

Take the youtube example. When you type:

But, yes if I were Serebii I would've sold the site by now.

Over 1 million dollars! Oh my!

Firstly, I think it would be better in the long run if Joe didn't sell Serebii.net and all of it's content. This is largely due to the $xxx advertising money from Google he probably earns every day.

Estimated monthly income from Serebii.net:

85*31=$2635 [My average monthly income for one of my sites from Google AdSense]

Serebii.net gets around 10 times more traffic than my site daily. So, it follows that,

2635*10=$26350 a month
26350*12=$316200 a year

Estimated yearly income from Serebii.net = $316200

Why sell it when he can get a steady flow of income every year?

I was thinking that too. If he were too quit Uni he would have a load more time to make the site even better, for example, updating pages such as the DP section like the 3rd to 4th transferring page and changing all the mistakes that keep cropping up.

However, I stop myself from being self-centred and let Joe have a life. I could think of plenty of good reasons to stay in Uni such as if he does eventually quit the site (hopes this never happens) he is able to get a job. I would do the same.

DONT SELL AND DONT QUIT!!!

Also, that site you listed Haris states that Google is only worth $10,000,000. Very innacurate. Serebii is not worth more than $100,000 in my opinion.

Luckily, your opinion doesn't matter to the companies that buy and sell domains

And don't forget...this is just the domain not the contents so more than likely the google domain alone is worth that much

I think that you people should calm down. Sure, it's a lot of money, but it's not that much money. A normal sized company makes a couple million a year. Selling serebii.net would be a bad decision in the long run for many different reasons, and the continual interjections are rather immature.

It could be due to the fact that you do not have true domains, but rather are hosted off a main server that gives you a subdomain. However, if I'm incorrect, than that's good too....

My website apparently is worth $610. Ever since I learned how inaccurate SPP was on some info (Mystery Dungeon anyone?), I was suppose to study out info myself, but then quit the site altogether....

You don't earn money by owning a website unless you have some sort of paying subscription. What the numbers with the dollar symbol in front of them means that if Serebii were to sell the site right now that is how much he would get.

He would also have to pay taxes if he wanted to sell it, plus many other things. The grand total wouldn't be as high as $1,268,904 once you deduct all expenses, taxes, etc.

But still that is a lot of money. I doubt Joe will sell it though :)...... Unless he gave me some....... Hey Joe, if you sell the site can I have $100,000? Please?

Of course, the loyal members (i.e. us) should all get a cut.

Works out at $52.14745407471335223770188632721 per member. What's that in pounds sterling?

This whole thing isn't quite so impressive when you consider that Google.com is worth $10,875,620.00


Three nickles, a button and some belly button lint.

And a book voucher that expired in 1956.

That probaly because the website has Runescape.com without no /'s on the different parts of the website and there is a lot of third party software out there for RS so less visit the actual site.

Anyway, thats amazing. Serebii is probaly the most expensive Pokemon website ever(wheres Guiness World Record people when you need them?). My website got 40 dollars XD.
