Let's look at Buzzfeed.

The details are hard to find but the last reported number of employees is about 1,200.

If you wanted to create the same site, you would have to nearly match that size and have about 100 programmers to pull it off along with others curating content.

The same looks to be true with the other two sites. These are companies with over one thousand employees each. I guess you wanted to read where a lone programmer could make such a site.

Cost To create web site

When you are creating a website than you need three types of people one is programmer second is designer and third is the content writer these people are very important in making the websites but this is not yet done. you need three developers each to cost $10000 and likely $7000 to content writer and $8000 to one designer than it probably cost you to minimum 25,000$.

I think that's too low for the sites that were asked about.

The sites asked about are on the very large size so I'll write your estimate of 5 employees is most likely what you would use to build a PROTOTYPE in order to secure funding.

Also, there's a lot going on with AI.
