How Much Is Hubpages Worth?

    If a company like Google wanted to buy Hubpages, how much money would they have to pay for a fantastic site like this? I just wondered but I would expect it would in the millions of dollars/pounds but I could see why they might like the idea.

    There are not may sites like this out there particularly with such a great community, great, easy to use and create webpages and to make quite large amounts of money.  The site also has loads of Hubs and a massive amount of traffic and also backlinks.

    So hypothetically speaking how much would it cost to buy Hubpages and I am just interested in the answers!  And no I don't want them to sell!

    According to this post http://www.siliconvalleywatcher.com/mt/ … a_diff.php

    The second largest privately held web site next to the Huffington Post is San Francisco based HubPages-- 42 million unique visitors every month.

    The Huffington Post, the ground-breaking online news and opinion site founded by Arianna Huffington on a shoestring budget, is to be bought for $315m by AOL--117m unique visitors a month in the US and 270m around the world.

    So I would say its getting pretty close to being worth $100 million in the very near future. $52 million right now if you look at traffic to price

    I would say somewhere between $80m - $120m based upon the sale of Associated Content for $100m (similar size in terms of traffic).

    The idea that Hubpages is without doubt one of the companies being very closely watched by the big guys does scare me a little, particularly the potential for a change in terms of service, so I cross my fingers that it remains one of the largest privately held businesses for another few years yet smile

    The one thing constant is change.

    And that gets disconcerting after awhile. smile

    Wow but it makes sense it is worth so much but as you say, it is also a little scary!  I just hope they don't sell and the big guys stay away from Hubpages. smile

    In the interest of Hubpages remaining a small friendly and close knit community rather than some mega corporation I am writing some of the worst content on the internet.  If that doesn't reduce the value I don't know what else I can do.

    As the old saying goes that's why you don't put all of your eggs in one basket I guess.I could see some jack azz buying it then just doing like many of the big sites and making back door deals with big media to turn us into whores for them and make it against the rules to try and promote yourself.

    In the light of the Google algorithm change I wonder if the value of Hubpages has dropped in the last 24 hours?
