Which are the Most Popular Blogs ?

Have you ever wondered which out of all the blogs in the blogosphere is the fairest blog of all and which blogss make money? Well I have, and so I asked my magic mirror. Well my mirror didn't tell me anything I don't already know, i.e. I'm way too old, but fortunately somebody must have heard my request because eBizMBA has just very kindly caclulated which are the 30 most popular blogs around.

According to eBizMBA the existing blog popularity-ranking services rely on just one piece of data to calculate their rankings. This can be based on either RSS feeds or a traffic-ranking service. eBizMBA decided therefore that to obtain a more accurate picture they would need to combine data from several sources.

So they used a combination of Inbound Links from Yahoo Site Explore, Alexa Rank, and Compete and Quantcast U.S. Unique Monthly visitor data. They also decided to exclude blogs that form part of a larger non-Blog site, such as Google Blogs (that may explain why your blog is not in the list - or mine :-) ).

I am surprised, however, not to see big names such as Problogger or John Chow on the list. The blog ranked number 30 is www.dumblittleman.com, which I'd never heard of before and which has an Alexa ranking of 24,227 (which is not a high as either Problogger or John Chow) and has 31,846 inbound links, although according to Blogjuice calculator - both Problogger and John Chow have more links than DLM. So eBizMBA's top 30 still seems a bit arbitrary.

An interesting list nevertheless and if you want to have a top-ranking blog all you've got to do is have a good look at the thirty blogs, pick one you like and do likewise !

  2. Hi Rita,
    How strange, I was just looking at your site then I discovered you'd been looking at mine ! I guess the post you were looking at was this one on one of my other blogs - http://buyingpropertyonline.blogspot.com/2007/06/property-in-poland-is-sound-investment.html -
    Thanks for the reference in your post, - your blog looks really excellent, I should really change to Wordpress it looks so much better than blogger.
    I tried to leave a comment on your blog but it asked me for my password which I couldn't find.
    Seattle looks like a nice place I trust your British husband is not missing our wonderful weather.
    Thanks for dropping by. Vic
