Cashing In Your Blog

Cashing In Your Blog

February 4th, 2006  · stk

Want to sell your blog? The first step is to determine its value. This is where Dane Carlson can help. We present his applet, which helps determine price based on the AOL-Weblogs Oct-2005 sale. You might be surprised. (Of course, finding a buyer is another matter)...

Our Blog Selling Price: Ten Thousand Dollars

value

Last October, AOL announced they were buying Weblogs Inc. The deal was estimated to be valued at approximately $25 million dollars. (Launched in 2004, Weblogs operates 85 different blogging sites, covering a wide range of topics.)

As one of the first blog acquisitions, the AOL-Weblogs deal can be used to put a price tag on your own blog. In an analysis by Tristan Louis, he used Technorati site numbers for each blog at Weblogs, and computed a link-weighted value on each. Taking it one step further, he came up with a rough estimate for what AOL paid for each Weblog external link ($564.65).

Then, Dane Carlson came up with a blog-valuation calculator, based on Tristans' work.

According to the calculator, our own blog is worth $10,161.72! 88|

Two Quick Thoughts:

  1. See Dad? Our blog is an INVESTMENT.
  2. Perhaps we should SELL?

LOL ... Finding a buyer might prove tough.

Wow ... things are sure expensive down there in the "Show Me" State! LOL.

Wouldn't it be nice if it were that simple?
