$3,387.24 please

My blog is worth $3,387.24.
How much is your blog worth?

Hot on the heels of news that AOL has bought Weblogs Inc for an estimated $25 million, Dane Carlson has produced a nifty applet that calculates how much any given blog is worth. The sum is based on figures extrapolated by Tristan Louis from the monetary value of the Weblogs Inc sale against the linkage and internet network value of individual blogs in the Weblogs stable. This non-monetary value comes from Technorati, a company that indexes and tracks the content of blogs; it ranks every blog not by traffic but by the number of links it has tracking back to it. Put simply, there are now $$$ attached to the Technorati ranking chart. For those who are curious, the Arbiter stands at 350, 359 out of all the blogs in the whole world.

Come on and buy us, AOL! We're cheap! The RCA is the internet's foremost purveyor of unfiltered content about old boxes, church posters and things found in/that should be taken to charity shops. Inc.

What you can buy for $3,387.24:

  • a Dior Park Lane trench coat
  • 113 Furbies
  • 338 single use Lomo cameras for the ensuing art project
