I Think I Would Sell For This Price

My blog is worth $430,744.02.
How much is your blog worth?

The last time I check the Business Opportunities Weblog calculator, it said my blog was worth $6,209.94. It looks like I’ve gone up quite a bit since then.

How did the Business Opportunities Weblog came up with that figure? It was inspired by Tristan Louisโ€™s research into the value of each link to Weblogs Inc.

Business Opportunities Weblog created this little applet using Technoratiโ€™s API which computes and displays your blogโ€™s worth using the same link to dollar ratio as the AOL-Weblogs Inc deal. According to Technorati, my blog has 1,540 links from 769 blogs. The more blogs linking to you, the higher your worth.

How much is your blog worth? And would you sell it for that price? If anyone wants to offer me $430,744.02 for JohnChow.com, you can have it! However, I must be allowed to start another personal blog after selling you mine. ๐Ÿ™‚

    No one is going to pay you almost a half a million for your blog, you noob…lol

    …unless they were also John Chow and liked to ramble about being a Dot Com mogul.

  2. HMTKSteve says:

    That’s the price for a blog that is not banned from Digg.


  3. Josh Kaufman says:

    It says my blog is worth $564 and according to Technorati, only one person links to it. It seems a inaccurate that a blog that is linked to by one person is worth $564.

  4. HMTKSteve says:

    My blog is close to $20K now! woot for me!

    You know… john, you could do a lot of damage to the Technorati system if you went on some mad dash of linking to lesser know blogs!

  5. Rex says:

    I’ve got 20 bucks, can I start an installment plan?

  6. Mayo says:

    Now what interests me is for how much would you sell the TTZ property??

  7. Gdog says:

    My blog is worth $16,371.66…who loves kimchi? I do!

  8. Michael says:

    I wonder how often they update it, because I know that Beyond the Rhetoric am linked to by at least a couple of blogs listed through Technorati, though my value comes up as a big fat goose egg.

    Ed, however, has only been around for a month and ededition.com is worth more than $2k. Am I jealous?

  9. Steve says:

    That’s why those calculators fail when it comes to personal blogs.

    Nobody is going to read JohnChow.com if it’s not written by John Chow!

  10. Matt says:

    They fail when it comes to everything. You can’t value a site based on these little tools, there’s just way too much more that comes into play.

  11. Kenric says:

    Mine new URL is worth $562!!! and I just changed URL’s last night. Maybe I’ll start a new blog everyday! It says my old one is worth $13,000.

  12. TOFUmonkey says:


    just checking, where’s a good place to check out the price of your own domain? I would sell mine for $20,000 if there’s any takers! ๐Ÿ˜€


  13. hmm, reminds me of the “house values” on zillow.com. they’re fun to look at and wonder, but not reality. as my realtor friend tells me, “zillow doesn’t look at the condition of the house next door, the condition of the house in question, and other factors…”

    but hey, I would definitely sell if I could. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  14. Nomar says:

    Your blog, kingnomar.com, is worth $1,129.08

    hehe i would sell it for this price!!

  15. Eliza says:

    $11,290.80, now I’d just like to see myself pull that much in. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Here’s a question for ya John, what do you think about those blogrolls? Are they good or bad? I ask because I’m new at this and have heard both opinions. I know you get more links that way.

  16. Ajay D'Souza says:

    My blog is worth $1,112,143.80

    If someone gives me even half of that I would sell!

  17. A valuation commonly used by people who actually buy websites is 10x-20x monthly revenue. This may seem like a small amount of money to pay, but in the age of the internet many things are uncertain. If google decides to ban you from adsense or from their search results, your earnings are screwed. There are many other pitfalls which could throw your earnings out of whack. For an established site with good search engine rankings and a stable revenue track record, you can get more money. For a site which could be easily copied, no great search engine rankings, and 3 months of revenue history, you are going to get the lower end of the range if someone will buy it.

  18. Mine jumped from $60 to $4,000 in a month. Thanks for the write up, interesting tool.

  19. Dan says:

    About 20% increase in about 5 weeks thats impressive.
