You might say – yet another list of top blogs. It is but it’s quite well done and based on potential advertising value and not only on number of hits per months.
While the author admits that it’s actually not possible to value the largest blogs appropriately, he nevertheless comes up with an interesting valuing approach – the amount a buyer might be willing to pay.
