as a former web developer (if you guys wanna hate check out www.hardrow.com ) i can tell you that this site is EXPENSIVE to run, and really not worth all that much.
Why? A massive amount of content with seemingly no limit. This all has to be hosted and paid for (along with domain name, upkeep, etc) Also, it lacks basic web design. I mean, the (any) page is SO fucking cluttered(where are you supposed to look?). and the interface is straight shit...dear god. anyway,
point is, the domain name is worth more than the site itself. I would say $50,000 to buy the whole damn thing
Those valuations are for the actual domain name newschoolers.com and are based on traffic metrics, they have nothing to do with the underlying business, and are probably overinflated (domain names are not as relevant now anyway).
Any business entity can have a valuation, not just public companies (which you can use market cap as a valuation proxy).
The value of newschoolers is partly the ad revenue, but moreso the value of the community demographics and any data collected on users. Who knows how well they do this (not as well as Facebook obviously), but it's out there in forum posts, comments etc. This could be valuable to advertisers if used properly. Anyone buying would probably do a valuation based on those intangibles, but yeah, I doubt very much.
This is true. I would probably buy about 100 shares. NYSE, meet NS.
Another side note:
How many shares would you need to buy to recieve a red name?
