Tristan Louis has a nifty write-up on the AOL-Weblogs, Inc. deal. He works backwards from the deal value (reports range between $25M and $40M) and pro-rates the value of the various blog properties, using reported Technorati links as a metric. An interesting number that falls out is the value of a single Technorati link, which ranges from $565 to $903. Hmmm, that would imply that the humble blog you are now perusing is worth between $2.5M and $4.1M. Which is just silly, and it’s not for sale anyhow.
