Top 100 Travel Blogs | SEOmoz + Alexa Rankings | Volume III | June, 2012

**(All data gathered for the latest update on June 12, 2012)**

Welcome to Volume III of the Top 100 Travel blogs!  I’m still blown away by the amount of interest the list is receiving.  I’m getting on average 20-30 new submissions in between every update and of those sites roughly half of them qualify to be tracked.

In this update I’ve changed the format slightly.  Now gone is MozRank.  I had been toying with removing this from the ranking system ever since I first created the list.  Now that it has been removed from the SEOmoz toolbar on Chrome it was the writing on the wall.  The problem with that category is that it was essentially measuring what Page Authority was already covering.  In essence, it was taking away from the importance of Domain Authority and skewing the results.

Thus, from this point onwards it will be Domain Authority, Page Authority and Alexa being tracked.  SEOmoz will make up 67% of the rankings (Domain Authority and Page Authority) whereas Alexa will make up 33%.

On this update I’ve tracked 155 sites meaning every category is now ranked out of a possible 155 points all the way down to 1.

Some top performers on this update include Green Global TravelGo Backpacking and Turkish Travel Blog.

Green Global Travel is no doubt one of the fastest growing travel sites out there.  They’ve been performing at a level that is going to ensure they continue to climb the rankings of this list in upcoming months.

Go Backpacking is a veteran travel blog that is not resting on its laurels.  Dave’s site has been improving constantly and moving up the rankings on recent updates.

Turkish Travel Blog is a new addition to the list.  I’m a big fan of Natalie’s site.
