Top 100 Travel Blogs Volume X December, 2013

Welcome to Volume X of the Top 100 Travel blogs! It’s hard to believe this is the 10th edition already.  Each update takes me 10-14 hours to complete (dependent upon how many new blogs are added to the mix) and I can now officially say I’ve put in well over 100 hours just on updates alone. There have been lots of changes to the list since the previous update.

Firstly, there are now close to 15 new blogs who are now in the mix.  I’ve also taken the time to remove a few dormant and inactive blogs that have fizzled out in recent months.

Secondly, it’s been a bullish period of time for travel bloggers in terms of improved metrics.  There are now 50 blogs with a sub Alexa 100K score (which I believe is a record) and DA and PA is up across the board generally speaking.  I’ve also noticed SEMRush improvements on this particular update. Some new blogs are really emerging fast and furiously.

Congratulations to E TrampingAlex In Wanderland and Around The World in 80 Jobs for ranking highly on this latest update.  Expert Vagabond has really skyrocketed up the list. New blogs being tracked on this update include: Francis TaponCheapest Destinations BlogAlex In WanderlandWomen On The RoadButterfly Diary,Just One Way TicketGoats On The RoadThe GypsyNester, Bitten By The Travel Bug, GRRRL TravelerDream Euro Trip and Bucket List Publications.

I’d ramble on a little bit longer but I’ve just arrived back in Chiang Mai, Thailand after a hectic 2 months of solid travels in the Middle East.  I’m running out the door now for Pad Thai and Mango Sticky Rice :) One this particular update there were 182 blogs tracked over four categories with a maximum amount of 728 points.
