What Is This Blog Worth?


My blog is worth $155,813.04.
How much is your blog worth?

There has been a fascinating discussion today in the blogosphere about the value of law professor blogs.  Daniel J. Solove (George Washington) at Concurring Opinion discussed the calculator at Business Opportunities Weblog, which computes the value of blogs based on AOL's recent purchase of Weblogs, Inc. The valuation is based on the number of links to a blog, not on the amount of traffic the blog generates.  This methodology results in these valuations of some popular law professor blogs:

Business Opportunities Weblog values TaxProf Blog at $155,813.04.  Please contact me if you would like to acquire this blog -- I would be happy to close the deal by year-end!

Here are the values of other tax blogs using this methodology:

I think I speak for the other tax bloggers in saying that we would be happy to give a discount to anyone wanting to acquire the entire tax blogosphere!
