lmao no If you calculate the cost of the servers and the minimal ad revenue produced by this shitty site since everyone uses adblockers, as with the income from 4chan passes, you're probably looking at most ~$600k
They judge worth on irrelevant stats like traffic and users.
4chan's value is significantly lower because, despite the amount of traffic and users, it has very few ways to monetize those users. Most advertisers wouldn't touch 4chan with a ten foot pole, and most 4chan users are tech-literate and therefore adblock anyways.
In terms of cultural impact, 4chan may be worth $220m. In terms of actual ability to generate revenue, it's way, way, way, way, way less.
>>52391586 Bots that post pro-Microsoft, pro-Apple or pro-Google opinions make 95% of the revenue of the site. The chan audience is one of the hardest to get to because they're not as gullible as average people, so pretending to be one of them and then convincing them we make amazing products is very valuable to us. We deploy enough bots to have a constant discussion going 24/7, the idea is that if we engage in enough discussion about it, not only will our products become more popular, but people will actually be more likely to buy our products. This has so far shown very promising results, promising enough to justify the costs of around 100 billion dollar a year we invest in project BotNet. We are excited to keep improving the customer experience in upcoming years, as we will be introducing more sensible arguments and enhanced provocation. Thank you for being part of us!
