I have a question? I am new to this board, and very interested in your opinions.
What is it worth ....money wise...to be ranked number 1 on any given yahoo page? relevant to WHATEVER your busines is,
to be in the top 10?
is it worth more
when there are a lot of entrys for instance over a million?
which has most value?
What if I told you, someone told me they know exactly how to get Yahoo to rank you number 1,in less than 60 days....
is that believable?
Thanks in advance for your help.

I would assume that the value of being number 1 in any search engine depends upon the the popularity of the keyword/phrase.
If you are competing with 10,000 other sides with the same keywords your number 1 position would have to be worth more than just competing with 100-200 other sites.

Thank you kindly for responding.
Lets say the keywords or phrases were up against 1 million or MORE entrys.
I NEED to know what's the DOLLAR VALUE of that.
also the dollar value of being top 10 against
1 hundred thousand or more entrys.
I MEAN SERIOUS CORPORATE COMPETION AND I AM MOVING THEM OUT OF THE WAY:}
I HAVE A MEETING IN THE MORNING!!!
HELP ME PLEASE.....
I need to know DOLLAR VALUES, I dont want to undersell myself.
Thanks again in advance....big hug too. yes I am female...

It all depends on how many people buy whatever it is, how many people use that search engine to find whatever it is, and how much the thing costs when you do buy it.

You can calculate your $$$ Value in two ways:
Method # 1
Cost of getting to reach to the top: No of Man Hours * per hour cost
You can add 100% of the total to get you profit.
Method # 2
Assuming you reach to the top:
Predicted Clicks: Predicted Clicks (Monthly) ( No of clicks predicted being at #1)
Your conversion rate: Conversion Rate ( No of visits required to make one sale e.g 1/73 > out of every 73 visitors, one visitor buys your product)
Average Profit: Calculate average profit on each buy.
So Your $$$ value can be calculated as follows:
$$$ = Predicted Clicks (Monthly) * Conversion Rate * Average Profit * 12
You typically charge 10-20% (If there is an affiliate program, 50% of the affiliate charges) of this as your annual fee and 10% as your maintenance fee.
You cannot generalize this $$$ value because, profit margins for each industry differs.
My 2 cents for your Hug!!!
