Top 100 Travel Blogs | SEOmoz + Alexa Rankings | Volume I | February, 2012

This is the first ever edition of the top 100 travel blogs!  Data was collected in late February, 2012 for SEOmoz and Alexa indicators.

A few observations from this initial list have to do with the top 3 travel sites.  Everything Everywhere, Nomadic Matt and The Planet D are in a league of their own.  It’s like they’re Yoda, Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader in a lightsaber showdown.  You get to decide who is who 😛

When it comes to SEOmoz sites that have been around for while certainly have advantage.  This shouldn’t be a surprise since SEOmoz has a lot to do with the link profile of a site (quality and quantity of links) which are built over an extended period of time.  In terms of Alexa scores there are several sites really doing well and emerging fast.  It’s going to be interesting how this all plays out over the years with regards to the best travel sites.
