What's your blog worth?

My blog is worth $24,839.76.
How much is your blog worth?

Can you see the image over to the right? Cute, isn't it? It says my main site is worth $24,000.00 but that's ridiculous on several levels. It's not intended to be entirely realistic, of course, but let's pretend it has some value as a tool.

First, this is based entirely on Technorati links. Many sites ignore Technorati entirely. I have nearly a thousand inbound links to aplawrence.com according to Google. And why should a link have any value anyway? Yes, it's some measure of popularity, but popularity doesn't necessarily equate to value, and if it does, the conversion is different for different sites. I wouldn't sell aplawrence.com for anything less than several million dollars, because it is the source of most of my consultant income. But it isn't worth even $10,000 to anyone else.

But this is cute, and interesting, and if nothing else is a different way to watch your Technorati status. As to what your blog is really worth, well, this isn't the method to figure that out.
