From the talk I've heard the best selling/buying price for a TGP is however much it makes per month multiplied by 3 months. In this case I'd say $2000 is fair but I'd personally try to bargain it down.

what does it do in traffic daily?

3 months? I would think more like 10 months.

TGPs are too volatile to be worth 10 months profit. All buying one guarantees you is built traffic and gallery submitters, both of which arenít worth much and can disappear as fast as it came (especially if it's a site using a trade script). An established Pay Site with recurring members would be worth 10 months because you're guaranteed a return on investment.

I've also heard that the TGP is worth 3 X's its monthly earnings, but somehow I am sure this model only works on smaller sites.

$600 a month seems quite a good earning. IF I owned a TGP which brought in that or more, I certainly wouldn't want to sell it at $2000. But like Mech says, a TGP's traffic and earnings isn't stable and therefore you have to take that into account.

I am sure uh-oh and Asianthumbs wouldn't sell their site for 3 X monthly earnings, especially if they were raking in 10K plus a Month.

If the site is established and has a "brand", which alot of the Asian TGP's have, that is also worth a fair amount. If there is a drop in traffic for some reason, a well known site will pick up more quickly than a "new" site, and that to me is worth alot. Of cause, it also depends on the webmaster, and the amount of work he is willing to put in!

just my 2 euro cents worth!

Mech and Jah are right generally a sites worth what it makes in 3 months, but with a TGP things can change so fast, especially if it relies heavily on traffic trades. My TGP was doing a good chunk of daily traffic and I made some changes, took down blind links, stop trading with some sites, and basically cleaned it up, and my traffic went down about 50% in less then 1 month so that gives you an idea of how "volatile" a tgp can be :x So I would be careful and make sure you buy something half ass good or build your own 8)

Even though the traffic has gone down CrazyAl, I am sure it is better traffic. Getting rid of blind links, and or some traffic trades will hurt in the short term, but I am sure your visitors are more likely to bookmark, and hopefully sign up to a site.
This is probably why you did the cleanup anyway :wink:

Yep that's why I did it, in the long run I think clean is better. Also the site becomes way more stable.

uh-oh is worth one beeellion dollars......muh..muh ha ha ha.....muh ha ha ha!!!!!!!!!

just watched goldmember........

hey CrazyAL, it IS better cleaner. This week alone ever since i started giving quality galleries a higher up listing, I've been getting more quality submissions, and even comments from surfers saying the quality's gone up. There are still some kinks i gotta work out so the top of the list IS the cream of the crop, but once that's done it should be even better.

uh-oh is pretty stable in terms of traffic. has been for a while now..= ) busting out my calculator to see what I get for my 3 months...

also find out if the scripts are inclided in the purchase price. some scripts have an ownership transfer fee, basically meaning unless it is paid, if the script is updated, the person that bought the tgp running the script won't qualify for the upgrade.

also find out how traffic comes to the site, some people inflate the numbers of a tgp they wnat to sell by feeding it traffic from their own sources and after the sale the traffic is no longer there.

Yep I just got a new script so I am going to start giving out partner ids to the groovy webmasters with nice galleries :). Will also help with time because I get way to many posters right now.

what does it do in traffic daily?

I just stumbled across the site referred to. It does about 2200 uniques a day with
next to nothing for trades. (easy to build up)Half his income is from ezinebucks,
which in my opinion is way too overexposed.
He uses Autogallery SQL, which as far as I can remember is Non-transferable, so a new
license fee will have to be paid. I'd like to see the ezinebucks stats on a daily basis up to the minute I paid for the thing before I bought it. If they're dropping off due to overexposdure, there goes the site income.

I love uh-oh and Asian Thumbs.org! they dont play favorites if your galleries are quality. and if your a guy who wants free porn you got to love the fact that they dont redirect your clicks!
