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.
Domain Authority: A score of at least 42 or higher. (please inform me of your score by email)
Page Authority: A score of 50 or higher. (please inform me of your score by email)
Alexa: A score of less than 250,000 (please inform me of your score by email)

Compete: A score of less than 1,300,000 (please inform me of your score by email)
SimilarWeb: A score of less than 1,200,000 (please inform me of your score by email)
*please note: obtaining 4 out of 6 minimum scores qualifies your blog to be tracked but it will take something better than these results to break into the top 100*

Please send me an email if you meet the above criteria with your Domain Authority, Page Authority, SEMRush and Alexa scores:
I’ll hit there eventually in the future.
Got to keep adding good content to make it 🙂
As a new blogger, I need be patient to creat a great score like this. Great Idea, hope much I can reach a good score like yours.
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.
Damn, my Alexa ranking is 136,000, but the others are not there yet.
Ah, that’s good to know 🙂 Let me know when you qualify in all three categories 🙂
Almost there !
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.
Thank you for the list..now I only nead to read and read!
Looks like we’ve got some way to go yet! Still, getting closer day by day! Thanks for the tips!
Not there yet 🙁
29, 39, 1,000,000+
I will keep working on mine and get to the list by the end of this year 😉
Would love to see you on there soon 🙂
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.
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 (http://dontstopliving.net)
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 🙂
Great list, thanks for compiling. I’m getting there 🙂
I will look at these Stats and let you know soon.
I am almost there, at least will be reaching min requirements in a month.
