Presenting the Top 200 Australian Blogs

Published by at 10:43 pm under Australian Blogs,Top Australian Blogs

As you know, each fortnight I plough through a list of Aussie blogs to determine the top 100. Usually, I run a minimum of 150 or so blogs each fortnight – ones that I have flagged as being close to the top. Some blogs move exceptionally quickly though.

Today I ran through a list of over 300. I actually have a much bigger list of 3,300 (with many duplications) that I just haven’t got around to culling (the duplications). I have not checked on these sites, which I normally do when a blog qualifies for the top list.

Remember to be eligible for the list you need to have claimed your blog on Technorati. If I notice that a blog hasn’t posted for over a month, then I generally take it off the list. A month is a long time in the blogosphere πŸ˜‰

Of course the index is a total formula, but as a rough guide, if your Technorati rank is under 400,000 and your Alexa rank under 1,000,000 (unless you have a blog which ranks less than 20, as this is the default Blogspot rank), and you’re an active Australian blogger, then I’d like to get your blog URL (either by a comment on this post or email meg at this domain). Please remember, I’m just one person trying to do my best with this list. If you think your blog might be eligible please let me know. For more information see “about the index“.

Also, please keep in mind the excellent resource we have for Australian blogs listed in my blogroll to the left under “Australian Blog Resources”.

My regular fortnightly update will be tomorrow, with the new additions to the top 100 list.

Anyway, while the following list is definitely not inclusive, I thought I’d include it, so the people on the list can get an idea of where they are ranking in relation to the top 100 list. Especially some of my favourite blogs :) The following are blogs that I have ranked 101-200.

    Hey! I’m in that middle of the road list – which has now been the highlight of my evening. πŸ˜‰ Good news!

  2. Megon 29 Nov 2007 at 11:12 pm


    140 but who’s counting πŸ˜‰ Couldn’t get the *^%# list to start at 101. As I said, a lot of my favourite blogs are there πŸ˜€

    Lots of good blogs there on the fringes of getting to the top 100. Think i will have to spend some extra time reading some of them :-)

    Thanks for the list.

    Thanks for the listing Meg! :)

    Greg – yes there certainly are!

    CB – what a pessimist πŸ˜‰ Very close…

    Scott – you’re welcome.

    It’s great to see 101-200 bloggers recognised! It’s sad that a lot of the new “Top 100” lists I see around the blogosphere start off with great (relatively unknown) blogs but are then slowly pushed out of the top 100 by the older, more popular blogs that own every list they are on. :(

    I think that puts Lifehacker AU at 121, yay!
    Thanks for the list Meg. :)

  9. Teresaon 30 Nov 2007 at 1:22 pm

    I’m on the list!
    Thanks for the work you put into this Meg:)
    I’m going to visit all of them.

  10. Gregon 30 Nov 2007 at 2:09 pm

    I forgot to say last night in my comment – Thank you for your hard work presenting the list too!

  11. Lighteningon 30 Nov 2007 at 3:06 pm

    Hey Meg,
    Any idea what number I am? Have I made it into the top 3000 yet? LOL.

    Thanks for that list, I’m going to have fun browsing some new blogs (well, I already read some of them but many I’ve never heard of). :-)

  12. Megon 30 Nov 2007 at 3:24 pm

    Greg – thanks mate :)

    Lightening – LOL Yes # 250 πŸ˜€

  13. Megon 30 Nov 2007 at 4:12 pm

    Sarah – you’re getting close :)

    Teresa – LOL, don’t forget to take a break πŸ˜‰

    WOW!!! That has totally blown my mind! I need to sit down cause I spent the last 10 minutes running around the house squealing.

    Doesn’t take much to please me :)

    But I had no idea I would juuuuuust scrape it in to the top 200!

    Thanks Meg for the stellar job. Must have been a labour of love babe.

  15. Megon 30 Nov 2007 at 10:05 pm

    LOL πŸ˜€ I was pleased to see you there. “Labour of love”? I’d nearly rather give birth again πŸ˜‰

    Na, it’s nice to see people get a buzz!
