Yahoo’s purchase is a big buzz here at PCForum. Everyone wants to know how much – just as they did with Bloglines. I don’t have an exact figure, but my sources, which saw the deal but did not do the deal, say around $15-$17 million. I do not know if there is an earn out as well, there may well be.

  1. So how does Flickr, which is interesting, sell for 17$ million when Ask Jeeves, which is not interesting, sells for $1bn ?

    In regards to ‘how much’, Om Malik has posted “My sources tell me the price tag is close to $35 million”.

    AskJeeves is clearly the more valuable property among the two in terms of monetization and traffic, but I was surprised at the low price tag for Flickr. Even $35 million seems to be something of a bargain for such a big up&comer in the web world.
