    Let's say you have a chat forum that stands alone. It's not just one facet of a multi-faceted site. Does the asking price of a site like that reflect how many active users there are? I have seen forum owners register tons of users just to get their registration count up, but does that actually work in raising the value of the forum? Or is it more to do with the amount of active users that are registered?

    I've never given this much thought, but I would assume that the value would be dependent on the actual activity not just numbers. Doesn't analytics tell you all these things like how many people visited the forum daily and how long they stayed, and even which pages they interacted with most?
