Top 100 Personal Finance Blog Rankings: A New Wise Bread Feature
Looking for more great personal finance blogs? Find the best ones with our new Top 100 Personal Finance Blog Rankings!
Feature 1: Personal Finance Blogs Ranked By Popular Statistics
By default the chart will rank the blogs based on traffic. But you can click on the column headings to sort the blogs by:
- Technorati Rank
- RSS subscribers
- Compete Score
- Twitter followers
- Number of inbound links
Each of these statistical categories can tell you different things about the blogs. For example, blogs with many Twitter followers usually interact a lot more with their readers. On the other hand, bogs with excellent Technorati Rankings have received a lot of mentions by other top blogs, which means they are well-respected by other bloggers.
Feature 2: Profile Page For Each Blog
Each blog listed also has its own profile page, which shows more stats and background information on the people behind the blogs. To see the profile page, click on the numbers in the first column of the chart. Some of the information available in the profile include:
- General stats overview
- Whois data
- Most popular posts
- Latest posts
- Latest Tweets
For example, here's a screenshot of Digerati Life's profile:
We’re just getting started. Here are features that will be released in the upcoming weeks:
- Allow you to vote for your favorite blogs
- Allow bloggers to edit their own profile page and add photos
- Keyword tagging and search of blogs -- For example, you’ll be able to find blogs tagged “credit card” or “frugal eating”
- An aggregator showing the latest headlines from the most popular blogs
- Develop a similar ranking system for Deals & Coupon websites
Why Develop New Tools?
Mrs. Micah explained it best:
Hands-down, the best way to keep up with something is to join a group of other people doing it. Working out with my husband keeps me working out. Dieters join weight-watchers. Writers join writing groups. One of the best ways to keep up with your financial goals is by joining a personal finance forum.
We hope these tools will help you find other like-minded folks who blog about topics you care about. While the list is currently focused on popularity, eventually we want to build a rich database that will help you find the exact type of personal finance blog/community that's right for you.
We Need Your Feedback
This system is still in beta and we need your help to make it better. If you have any suggestions or comments please drop us a note in this forum thread. Feel free to suggest a blog for inclusion, especially your own. We plan on expanding this list indefinitely, so we’re not limiting ourselves to just 100 blogs.
