Multiplying traffic and CPMs, 24/7 Wall Street came up with a list of the 20-five most valuable blogs.

They did the same thing last year.

This year, 24/7 pegged Gawker Media to the top, figuring Nick Denton’s collection of sites are worth $170 million at an 8x operating income valuation.

Nick tells us 24/7 underestimates Gawker’s traffic and overestimates its CPMs.

But this is all a game anyway, right?

Here’s the rest of the list. Make sure to click through to see how they did the maths:

  1. Gawker Properties — $170 million.
