How to Start a Two-Bit Operation: Small Business Tips

From start to small business. Learn and live vicariously.

I recently learned about LeapFish, a site which offers estimates on the value of any given domain name. For each domain they calculate a CVS (Combined Value Score), which is composed of a number of factors, including whether it’s a .com/.org/.net, how similarly it matches a dictionary word, and the number of search results on Google, Yahoo and MSN there are for the name.

Ads by AdGenta.com

Here are the values for some domains that I tried:

  • AOL.com: $981,722
  • Microsoft.com: $1,644,314
  • Google.com: $2,840,064
  • Yahoo.com: $1,393,944
  • twobitoperation.com: $14,406

Based on the value for this site, it’s obvious LeapFish has some significant errors with undervaluation. :D  Still, the attributes that they use to make their valuations seem pretty reasonable – I’ll definitely use their site when choosing the next domain name to register.  Let us know what your site’s worth!
