Autoblog is an American internet-based automotive news website owned and operated by AOL Inc. through their Weblogs, Inc. subsidiary.[2] AOL reports 2.4 million visitors to the Autoblog website each month.[2] Major media outlets such as U.S. News & World Report and Business Week use Autoblog research in their publications.[3][4][5] Autoblog also licenses its images to media outlets such as CNN Money.[6] Despite its name, Autoblog is not a traditional weblog run by an individual.
