AOL buys Huffington Post for $315 million

AOL buys Huffington Post for $315 million

This is the second blog network that AOL has bought in the last 6 months. They got the TechCrunch network back in September and now it’s the Huffington Post with a reported $315 million in cash.


Co-founder Arianna Huffington will remain as Editor-in-Chief of HuffPo under the AOL umbrella (attracting over 25 million unique visitors a month). The HuffPo sale is probably this biggest acquisition of a single blog in blogging history. This also makes AOL the biggest blog content producer today – they now own Engadget, TechCrunch and HuffPo and many more — the big names in the blogosphere.

Abe is the founder and Editor-in-Chief of YugaTech. You Can follow him on Twitter @abeolandres.

    It’s funny how spammers are getting smarter these days. Marunong na mag-Tagalog. Impostor pa! They could have been paid large sums to do all these efforts of collecting personal info like usernames, emails and website addresses.

    Or baka naman, binayaran tong mga to ng mga taong hindi napagbigyan ni yugatech, kaya sinasabotahe ang blog nya.

    Baka naman sir Abe meron kang chick na di pinagbigyan. O di kaya eh advertiser na hindi agree sa terms mo. Better watch your back! :D

    Hi guys! These spammers and impostors are taking a lot of my time while I moderate the comments. I will be making some slight changes in the commenting policy so comments don’t appear right away.

    Wow, Huffington Post really is very lucky…for hundred million wow!

  12. I think AOL is up for something bigger than this.
    My internet marketing instinct tells me that they’re just gathering ammos for now.
    Later, who knows…
