    I don't think this means a lot.

    Is it an active site? Which niche is it in?

    You can have a sucky PR3 site, which will sell for 10$ maybe.
    You can have an awesome PR1 site, which will sell for 500$ maybe.

    So you can't really base the price on the pagerank

    The amount I'm willing to pay would depend on:
    1 - Niche
    2 - Existing traffic
    3 - History of your traffic
    4 - Domain name
    5 - TDL
    6 - Proof not banned in Google

    Are you selling a site for us to check out?
    Cheers,
    James

    PR isn't really a good measure to sell a site. A PR3 site is worth around $25 and PR4 about $50. Form there revenue, content, design, programming, domain name, traffic are some of the more important factors to determine the sales price.

    Three most important factors in buying a website in my opinion are: Traffic volume, Revenue, How much time it takes to maintain the website (and what actually one has to do to maintain the website). I don't care about pagerank.

    I would by a website with 10K unique monthly visitors, even if the website would generate no revenue at all. Because in this case it would probably be poorly monetized. And that is easy to fix.

    I would also buy a website with low amount of unique visitors, but at least some revenue.

    Giving PR only, doesn't tell the buyer anything about the website. PR is pretty much meaningless.

    Tell us something else about the website. Traffic, Revenue, Niche, Website type, how much time is required to maintain the website, and everything else you can.

    The biggest factor is Unique Visitors / Pageviews, as these are where the actual money happens. How Google ranks you is important and everything, but you can always re-optimize a website for better SEO and build backlinks. But if you have a site already gaining 20k pageviews daily with a PR2, that's worth a lot more than a PR6 or PR7 site with 2000 daily pageviews

    The Unique Visitors / Pageviews is a big one. I think that the big three are the traffic, revenue and the site itself. Even a site with no traffic or revenue could have a good value due to the design and content.

    In general most sites can be sold at one month of gross revenues. For example if you make $5000 per year from ads or goods, then you can sell your site for $500.

    Or you have to be patience and wait a person that like very much your site and ready to buy it.

    Sites that have passive revenue from adsense usually sell at 10x the monthly revenue. So a site making $50 a month would sell for $500.
