Just about two months ago 24/7 Wall Street included ARS Technica in their 25 most valuable blogs list and set the price market price at $15 million. If today’s reports of ARS Technica’s sale to Conde Nast are true the price was actually $25 million. That’s a 66% increase over 24/7’s valuation. Does that mean Gawker Media which topped the list at $150 million is really closer to $250 million?
Does that make the Huffington Post worth $116 million =?
One thing it certainly does is make everyone else on that list very happy today. It should make every other serious new media content creator happy as well.
