Website Broker Analysis
The number of content site listings across the brokerages last month was at an all-time high, and so were the multiples.
As you may expect, Empire Flippers had the most deals at ~ 40 live listings for a total price of ~ $60M in websites, with an average listing multiple of ~ 43x. Investors Club was second with ~ 35 listings and over $3M in deals, with a significantly lower average listing multiple of 34x. And Motion Invest was third with ~ 15 listings, ~ $800K in total website deals, and an average multiple of ~ 35x.
In aggregate there were ~ 100 websites for sale with the brokers with the average multiple being ~ 38x monthly profit. That’s up from the 34x average content site multiple that Empire Flippers reported in its State of the Industry Report 2021 edition.

Understandably, a content site owner’s greatest fear is receiving a manual or algorithmic penalty that immediately hits your site’s traffic or revenue. To work out how your portfolio can withstand such an event, it may be prudent to model what happens to overall revenue when one or more sites decrease over time. Can you and your team withstand such an event?
