Top 100 Travel Blogs Volume XI February, 2014

Welcome to Volume XI of the Top 100 Travel blogs! I can’t believe it but the Top 100 has just turned two!

Like any two year old this ‘list’ has matured quite a bit over the past couple of years.

Two updates ago, the format only included three categories:  Alexa, Domain Authority and Page Authority.

On the previous update it expanded to four:  Alexa, Domain Authority, Page Authority and SEMRush.  On this latest update I’m now including a whopping 6 categories:   Alexa, Domain Authority, Page Authority, SEMRush Compete and SimilarWeb.

Over the span of only a few months the metric system for the Top 100 Travel Blogs has now doubled! Why the change in format? I always felt a bit uneasy with only using two independent sources to calculate the Top 100:  Alexa and Moz (DA and PA)

By shifting the format to 5 independent sources of tracking, I strongly feel the list now better represents the top travel blogs in the industry.  Any inadequacy or flaw in a particular category is now further negated by only accounting for 16.6% of the ranking system as opposed to 33.3%.

The downside (if I can be selfish for a moment) is that this list now takes twice as long for me to put together given the increase (double) in statistics I’m now tracking; however, I feel this is small price for me to pay in order to improve the list. One this particular update there were 180 blogs tracked over six categories with a maximum amount of 1080 potential points.
