How much would you sell your blog for? A Malaysian blogger, Bob Jiwakacau, sold his 5 months old but good rankings blog “ ” for USD$10,000.
How good is the blog?
Blog Oh Blog is young (5 month old) and do not have high traffic (1000+ visitors/day), but it received good rankings such as PageRank 6, Technorati No.44, and Alexa 35,331.
How did the blog ranked so high?
One of the main reasons is because the blog received many incoming links from other blogs. Bob created some popular. Every blog that uses his theme will link to his blog in the theme footer.
My two cents
It is not easy to have a blog in Technorati Top 50. Bob did that by offering free high quality WordPress themes. He has received the fruit of his hard work now. However, I think USD10,000 for the blog is under priced.
According to Bob, the main reason of blog selling is commitment to his work, and he cannot write in English well. That’s too bad. He probably can sell the blog for a lot more at its 1-year old milestone.
