Top 100 Travel Blog Requirements

For you blog to start being tracked for consideration as a Top 100 Travel Site you need the following minimum scores in 4 out of the 6 categories: (please NOT 1 of 6, 2 of 6 or 3 of 6) ONLY 4 of 6 or better.

Great list, thanks for compiling. I’m getting there :)

Great list! I just started my travel blog in April, so I have a long ways to go in meeting your minimum criteria. At least now I know what steps I need to take :)

Wow! I didn’t even know there was a list – looks good. I’ve been travel blogging for almost 6 years and have written over 1,000 articles, hoping I can get on this someday!! Jonny (

Interesting, I’ve been up and down on Compete while my main traffic comes from all over Southeast Asia as I am area-specific. I do about 250-300k pvs a month but seems I need to improve the compete rankings..ugh. Will try I guess.

I’m an experienced travel writer but new to the world of blogging, so still have a while to go before I meet your criteria. I’ve enjoyed taking a look at your site and have found it very helpful and interesting. I’ll be back, as that famous Austrian once said.


Yeison July 29, 2013 at 7:11 pm

Almost there !


Naughty Nomad August 9, 2013 at 10:36 pm

Damn, my Alexa ranking is 136,000, but the others are not there yet.


Samuel Jeffery August 10, 2013 at 2:34 am

Ah, that’s good to know :) Let me know when you qualify in all three categories :)

Darn! Close, but no cigar! Domain: 94 (yay!) Authority: 44 (grr) Alexa: 3,601,841 (that one hurts) SEMrush: 196,986 (not the worst..) Not sure how to pump up those numbers, but I’ll keep trying! Thanks for all the links – nice to see where my blog stands.


Jamie October 29, 2014 at 3:18 pm

I’ll hit there eventually in the future.

Got to keep adding good content to make it :)
