A ridiculous business week article claims that sources claim that Digg is worth $200m. Digg is a news site, supported by thousands of members. So how does it stack up to a 2 man operation, the Drudge Report? Here is the Alexa graph
The uptick in Digg’s numbers came when the Firefox for Alexa plugin was released and installed on a large number of browsers. If you halve that impact, Drudge and Digg are more or less in the same ballpark. Drudge hasn’t shown much growth over the past, say, 2 years, but can Digg maintain its growth pattern? Judging by the lack if interesting links on the main page, and the impossible to shed uber-geek lineage, we doubt it. Alexa numbers are close to useless unless you’re comparing two similar sites, and by this graph I’d say Business Week needs to do a story on how Matt Drudge is worth $120m.
