Top 100 Travel Blogs and Top 100 Travel Sites

Introduction

Welcome to the top 100 travel blogs (single author, couples and family sites) as ranked by Alexa, SEMRush, Domain Authority,  Page Authority, Compete and SimilarWeb indicators.  This list was compiled tracking hundreds of independent travel sites.  The top travel sites that made this list are ranked according to Alexa (16.6%), SEMRush (16.6%), Domain Authority (16.6%), Page Authority (16.6%), Compete (16.6%) and SimilarWeb (16.6%) indicators in an attempt to highlight some of the best travel blogs.  In total, six different metrics are used in the equation from five different independent sources.

My list is done entirely by ranking numbers and does not involve my personal opinion in any way, shape or form.

The list specifically measures the external link profile of sites using Domain Authority & Page Authority along with Alexa, Compete, SimilarWeb and SEMRush to determine levels of traffic, popularity, engagement and results in the search engines.

(If your travel blog does not qualify for the list or to be tracked, this article will definitely help you eventually get there.)

The Top 100 Travel Sites will be updated roughly every 8-16 weeks.

What this list is/isn’t

This list is current.  Most of the other best travel sites lists do not accept new entries & accordingly aren’t relevant.

The Top Travel Blogs will ALWAYS include a process of accepting travel sites that meet the criteria of the ranking system.

This list is purely a ranking system based on numbers crunched, ranked and scored objectively.  There are no subjective measurements.

The Best Travel Blogs is inherently flawed.

Observations Regarding This Latest Update:

**(All data gathered for the latest update on September 13, 2014)**

Welcome to Volume XII of the Top 100 Travel blogs!

It’s been ages since I’ve updated this list.  I apologize for that.  Ideally, I’d like this list to be updated 4-6 times per year; however, this year has been exceptionally hectic for me (the busiest year of my life) and each update takes longer than ever given the amount of blogs I’m now tracking.

Since the last update, many blogs have soared up the charts and you’ll notice this particular snapshot of the list looks quite different.

Travel blogging certainly isn’t static and those really pushing with their sites have shown tremendous growth in the past 6-8 months.

There have been 15 new sites added to the mix and to actually be in the Top 100 portion of this list is becoming harder and harder with each update.

One this particular update there were 194 blogs tracked over six categories with a maximum amount of 1164 potential points.

If you would like your travel blog to be included on the next update it has to qualify for FOUR out of the SIX metrics: (email:  nomadicsamuel at gmail dot com)

Alexa Score:  250,000 or lower

SEMRush:  1,600,000 or lower

Page Authority:  50 or higher

Domain Authority:  42 or higher

Compete:  1,300,000 or lower

Similar Web:   1,200,000 or lower
