  • Alexa Rank
    Alexa’s traffic rankings are based on the usage patterns of Alexa Toolbar users and data collected from other, diverse sources over a rolling 3 month period. A site’s ranking is based on a combined measure of reach and pageviews. Reach is determined by the number of unique Alexa users who visit a site on a given day. Pageviews are the total number of Alexa user URL requests for a site. However, multiple requests for the same URL on the same day by the same user are counted as a single pageview. The site with the highest combination of users and pageviews is ranked #1.
  • Compete Visitors
    The number of unique visitors that visited the website in July 2009 according to Compete.
  • Google PageRank
    PageRank relies on the uniquely democratic nature of the web by using its vast link structure as an indicator of an individual page’s value. In essence, Google interprets a link from page A to page B as a vote, by page A, for page B. But, Google looks at more than the sheer volume of votes, or links a page receives; it also analyzes the page that casts the vote. Votes cast by pages that are themselves “important” weigh more heavily and help to make other pages “important.”
  • Google Reader Subscribers
    The number of Google Reader users that subscribe to each blog.
  • Technorati Authority
    Authority is determined by the number of unique blogs indexed by Technorati that have linked to that blog in the past 180 days.
  • Technorati InLinks
    The total number of links that a blog has received.

HOW THE LIST IS COMPUTED

  1. 181 well-known blogs are selected.
  2. Data is collected for each blog from all 6 measured criteria (i.e., Alexa Rank, Compte Visitors, Google PageRank, Google Reader Subscribers, Technorati Authority, and Technorati InLinks).
  3. For each of the 6 measured criteria, each blog is ranked in comparison to all other blogs being evaluated.
  4. A composite rank for each blog is determined by averaging each blogs ranking from the 6 measured criteria.
  5. The top 100 blogs are published.
