Spieglein, Spieglein an der Wand, wer ist der teuerste Blog im ganzen Land? Nachdem wir nun wissen, wie viel Marktwert die Top Blogs in Deutschland haben, setzen die Werte der großen US Blogs wieder einmal die Benchmarks in Bezug auf ihren monetären Wert. Zumindest versuchen die Analysten von 247wallst.com in regelmäßigen Abständen den Wert der großen US Blogs zu bestimmen.
Douglas A. McIntyre gibt einen Einblick welche Kennzahlen bei der Ermittlung dieser Werte zu Grunde liegen:

To determine value, 24/7 Wall St. looked at unique visitor and pageviews information from several public sources including Alexa, Quantcast, Compete, and comScore. These services are often criticized for estimating website traffic too low and we have taken that into account to the extent possible. We also looked at audience measurements provided by the blogs themselves when it seemed credible. Our estimated CPMs for ads are based on the current display and text ad environment, the quality of ads at each blog, and the number of ads that it runs on the average pages. The CPM value assigned to each blog is based on all of the ads it runs on its typical pages. To determine margins, 24/7 looked at headcount when available, and estimated costs of operating and maintaining websites. More complex content platforms where assigned higher monthly costs. Current audience growth rates were taken into account. A site which has traffic doubling year-over-year was given a higher multiple than one which is losing traffic. Because not all blogs make money, multiples of revenue and operating income were used to assess value.
