Determining The Top Education Blogs
Determining The Top Education Blogs

As promised, today I’m sharing the results of some recent research I conducted into the top education blogs on the web. As an experiment, both for a client and for a recent presentation on finding relevant bloggers, I decided to cast a wider net that actually needed and share the results with everyone. Before I dive into the methodology or the list, allow me to caveat this research with a couple of notes.

First, because no automated method or service exists to collect the top blogs in a given category, the list I compiled was done so manually. The possibility then, for human error, oversight and just plain not finding all of the blogs that can be considered is there. While I can attest I was thorough in my collection of blogs for consideration, I may have missed a few. If so, let us know in the comments.

Also, to disclose and explain why I was digging around looking for education blogs, the National Center for Family Literacy, one of Doe-Anderson’s favorite social media clients, announced the results of some fairly significant research last week. In order to include top education bloggers interested in early childhood education and literacy issues in the dissemination of the research results, we conducted the research to find relevant bloggers. Because we were focused on early childhood education and literacy as a specific topic, our targeted list isn’t necessarily reflected in the results for the top education blogs. (Hint to PR folks: Don’t just find education blogs. Find education blogs that write about the topic you’re pitching.)

As indicated in my Not All Blogs Are Created Equal post and presentation from last week, I gathered blogs for consideration by doing a couple of searches. When Googling “Top Education Blogs” I found a couple of lists here and here that gave me a good start. I did searches in Technorati and Google Blog Search as well as Bloglines to collect and add to the list. At this point I had just over 100 blogs. I then parsed through Alltop’s education listing to ensure I didn’t miss any listed there. Interestingly enough, several of the blogs listed on Alltop weren’t on my list already. This makes me question Alltop’s requirements for adding blogs. Perhaps they don’t have any. Nonetheless, I was happy to have more blogs to consider. Finally, a quick check of the tags “education” and “blogs” in combination on Delicious.com gave me a list of around 150 total blogs for consideration. Seeing many of them in multiple places, I was fairly confident I had most if not all of the top blogs.

I subscribed to all of them and organized them in a folder in Google Reader, exported my feeds as an OPML file and then stripped out everything but the Education blogs in a text editor. (This is a little technical. For screen shots and explanations, see Marshall Kirkpatrick’s “How To Build A Social Media Cheat Sheet” on ReadWriteWeb. Ironically enough, Marshall also used education blogs as his example. His project ended with an OPML file you can subscribe to of top educations blogs most relevant posts using Postrank, which I used too. His results weren’t a list of blogs, but an RSS feed of the top posts from a list of blogs.) For those of you not hip to what I’m talking about here, an OPML file is essentially a list of all your RSS feeds used mainly to allow you to export all your feeds from one reader and import them to another. I edited my OPML file listing all my feeds so that the only ones in it were the education blogs, allowing me to work with just those 150 or so blogs I collected.

As a favor, the fine folks at Postrank took my file and applied their analysis to each blog to come up with an engagement score for comparison. This numeric value is determined by analyzing comments, trackbacks, Diggs, bookmarks and so on. The different metrics are weighed m ore or less depending upon how much engagement each demonstrates. For more detail, click here. Based on each metric’s value for each post added up over a specific period of time (this analysis is for the last 30 days), you get an engagement score.

So, thanks to Postrank, here are the top 50 education blogs based on engagement over the last 30 days:

Since I don’t really know a great deal about education blogs or bloggers, I will refrain from commenting. Congratulations to those on the list. Keep in mind this is engagement over the past 30 days and just under 150 blogs were evaluated as part of our experiment, all manually found and selected by yours truly.

If you’d like to download the OPML file of all the blogs considered, click here and save the file to your computer. You should be able to then import it into your favorite feed reader and have a subscription to all the education blogs we analyzed.

As always, I’m interested in your thoughts. Was there anything in the methodology that is suspect other than the blogs were selected by one guy doing research? Did we miss any that might have made the top 50? As always, the comments are yours.

  • Thanks for the info. I updated.

  • dps

    nice blog…you are providing good information.now i want to see some new informational post by you. it has been old.

  • A number of blogs listed I would not classify as early childhood. And at least one I would list as school related humor not education blogging. But an interesting exercise. I’ use PostRank’s current lists for up to date lists though. I do better there. :-)

  • Oh, I’m seeing now that this is a pretty old post – maybe it needs updating since it is going back around the blogosphere.

  • Some of the links aren’t working! Check Joanne’s for example. Will you check those? Thank you for including on the list.

    Also, if someone syndicates through RSS all their content vs. someone who does partial syndication – I think this affects postrank and is why many don’t syndicate full content. For me, I want people to read wherever they are. So, for every metric there is a cavaet. I also hope that those in education will follow many not on this list. If we all follow and read the same thing there is a big risk of group think, I think. There must be room for the different voices in any conversation.

  • Thanks for the list and for doing the study. No educational blog list is complete without a satirical one though:

    Actually published last week (February 13, 2011), this unique teacher's journal shows a different look at what happens in the schoolhouse … by a rookie teacher who loves his work and his students, but he expresses his thoughts and observations in a hugely different way than Mrs. Munroe. Sure, there are some intense moments, even some good cussing, too … but mostly it's world-class hilarious, heartwarming … like reading a good book. It’s the teacher’s blog we’ve been waiting for. It's simply mesmerizing.

  • 3 Achieve your goal in college life

    It is not only convenient to get anything from a math degree to a psychology degree online, but it can also be less costly than traditional college or universities, too. Often, since online schools do not have a physical campus, they do not need to charge as much for attendance. Things like housing, campus building upkeep and cafeteria facilities are not typically offered, and so the cost of attendance is just tuition and books. In addition, most online education programs offer some form of financial aid.

    Online Graduate Degree

    These days, it can be so hard to go back to school. Whether you are straight out of high school with a good job, or a parent juggling childcare responsibilities and employment, sometimes returning to college to get your degree can be daunting. Besides the issue of just having enough time in the day, there are other concerns, such as cost and the amount of time it will take to get a certain degree or certification. If any of these concerns apply to you, perhaps you should consider an online graduate degree, or an online doctoral degree……

    Interesting research and article. It is obviously very difficult to quantify the the most popular blogs. As a periodic blog reader and teacher, I found many other good blogs not listed in the results. I also found some good article based sites with educational information. One such new site I liked can be found at http://www.legalflip.com/ It offers legal information in a simple to understand way with a graphical userface.

  • Online Bachelors Degree

    First, know exactly why you want to earn your degree online. Do you want to get a promotion with your current employer, but s/he is only looking at coworkers with degrees? Are you seeing positions posted online or in the newspapers that you know you can do, but you need a degree to apply? Is there a part of your background that could be filled out with some online courses, so that you could present yourself as a complete solution to an employer? Do you have a bachelors degree, but realize you need a masters to keep up with the competition? Or do you just want to be rewarded for your own long-term investment in your own personal and professional development…………………

    Achieve your goal in college life

    It is not only convenient to get anything from a math degree to a psychology degree online, but it can also be less costly than traditional college or universities, too. Often, since online schools do not have a physical campus, they do not need to charge as much for attendance. Things like housing, campus building upkeep and cafeteria facilities are not typically offered, and so the cost of attendance is just tuition and books. In addition, most online education programs offer some form of financial aid. And the cost of online degrees earned from an accredited institution can often be offset with federal financial aid as well…………..

  • We hope all those bloggers – and all who care about education — will help spread the word of a new nonprofit website that helps provide classrooms the resources they need for children to thrive. In short, teachers visit http://ClassWish.org to create Wish Lists of the items they need. Parents, businesses, churches and others see exactly what's needed and how their tax-deductible contributions can help.

    I have made a short video of my university class at Indiana State University using social media in the classroom, not as a gimmick, but as a daily application. The change in the class is amazing and the productivity has increased significantly from the traditional approach used before. It may be of interest to some and is only 10 minutes long.

    Enjoy!

    Excellent Opportunity to Study

    Creativity is a blessing from nature but we can develop it by careful planning through education. This is all the more important in a country like USA where we accept even the mediocre to contribute their best and create something new.
    Hence, it is necessary that parents and teachers provide healthy conditions at home and the school. This would enable children to express themselves and contribute something new for the society, which may be termed as creativity……….

  • Excellent Opportunity to Study

    Original knowledge, once uncovered, is the clear awareness of your controlling desires and the content of your dominant aspirations. Consequent knowledge helps us identify the proper ways our dominant aspirations can be fanned into the flames of enthusiasm, ambition and accomplishment. It can also help us take the necessary steps to overcome the petty and self-limiting desires that yield the incomplete and unsatisfying outcomes we often experience throughout our lives…………

    Thank you for such a fantastic list! I am a current college student, but I would like to teach elementary education afterward. I am actually using a Ning blog right now for one of my courses to collaborate with fellow classmates. My first two years of classes we did not use any blogs at all. It appears as of late social networking is really taking off. I have used social networking sites such as Xanga, Myspace and Facebook to talk with friends for years, but never used them in an educational context until recently. I have now used educational blogs for 3 classes in the last year alone! I hope to browse some of the sites you listed in my future classroom as well as by myself to enhance the quality of my teaching. Thanks Again!!

    While my blog, Dr. Z Reflects, doesn't see quite as much traffic as these, I would like to suggest that you might want to visit it as well. I am an Instructional Technology professor at the University of Northern Iowa and I have been writing this blog for 4 years and it is where I share the latest apps, ideas and innovations in educational technology.

    You might also want to see my blog on Keyboarding Research at

    It is not quite as active but it is the leading keyboarding resource in the country. Google “keyboarding research” and it comes up first.

    Yo Scholars – Dr. Donohue's New Book on Improving Education is now On-line
    Submitted by Chuck St. Arnaud on Thu, 2009-09-17 15:32 Savannah Morning News
    I would like to announce my support for and endorsement of the amazing new educational publication “Yo Scholars” by accomplished educator Fran Donohue. Dr. Donohue's new website, http://www.ConnectionsEdu.com acts as a vehicle for both a blog and for distributing her “Yo Scholars” e-publication around the globe.

    Dr. Donohue is a retired educator, administrator, and consultant for some of this country's most prestigious and successful institutions. She has put her entire career into this work as well as collected information from outside resources and contributors. It truly is a collection of some of the finest teaching models available.

    “Yo Scholars” is meant for anyone who is invested in improving the quality of education today. It offers incredible real world examples and models that allow parents and teachers alike to reach children and students on a level at which many traditional approaches fall short.

    The website, http://www.ConnectionsEdu.com, offers a lot of free resources including a growing list of blog topics and a sample of the “Yo Scholars” coursebook. We encourage you to take a look and see the value for yourself.

  • It is exciting to be included on your list. I feel like my blog (The Power of Educational Technology) is on the edge of many “top” lists. Sometimes I make the cut and sometimes I don't. I don't know how long I will last on yours, but it is always nice be recognized for my blogging efforts.

    It is also interesting that I am pretty entrenched in the edublogosphere and yet haven't heard of several of the blogs at the top of your list. Of the 11 blogs I don't know of on your list (I subscribe to most of the rest), 4 are in the top four. And, some of the best known education bloggers, such as Will Richardson, David Warlick and Chris Lehmann are not there at all.

    I'm excited to discover new voices to add to my (already overflowing) aggregator.

  • First of all, I'm very surprised that Weblogg-ed isn't on the list and I'd love to see where he ranked. In terms of audience size, reach, #of comments per post and such, I'd imagine he ranks higher than just about anybody on that list. And he's definitely on some of those lists you brought in, so I'm perplexed why he wouldn't show up.

    Regardless, please let me know a few weeks before you re-rank the numbers. I'd like to make sure I put up a few more posts during that time span ;) 30 Days is a pretty darn short window.

  • Hi Stephen,

    2) Aggregated.

    3) No, we don't use Alexa. Yes, we use what Technorati does, but a lot more sources, too. (They only use trackbacks.) Our sources are listed here: http://www.postrank.com/postrank#how – and on our site you can see them when you mouse over PostRank scores as well.

    4) Given that you can game Google PageRank the same way if you really want to, I don't think there's an iron-clad defence for this at this point. And really, most dedicated publishers I know invest a fair bit of effort growing their audiences and communities, and don't focus so much on trying to game systems. Those who do… I'm thinkin' it probably shows in their content pretty quickly.

    5) Splogs are pretty much what you just described there when content is just re-posted. And if a fairly mainstream site does it and gets noticed, there are legal repercussions. When content is only somewhat re-posted… well, frankly, that happens all the time. Big stories get picked up by lots of people, often with very little variation in the content. Those who get more engagement on their version tend to just be those with bigger/more engaged audiences. Just being first doesn't necessarily mean the content's going to be the best.

    6) Correct. It's something we've discussed and may implement in the future. No ETA at the moment, though.

    7) No, we don't do engagement authority, nor do we have any plans to. Too subjective and variable. An audience member from one demographic might have a much more valid opinion to one publisher than to another, or one comment I publish might be eloquent and insightful, whereas another might just be, “Awesome!”, etc.

    Any other questions, please let us know. :)

    4) Given that you can game Google PageRank the same way if you really want to, I don't think there's an iron-clad defence for this at this point. And really, most dedicated publishers I know invest a fair bit of effort growing their audiences and communities, and don't focus so much on trying to game systems. Those who do… I'm thinkin' it probably shows in their content pretty quickly.

    5) Splogs are pretty much what you just described there when content is just re-posted. And if a fairly mainstream site does it and gets noticed, there are legal repercussions. When content is only somewhat re-posted… well, frankly, that happens all the time. Big stories get picked up by lots of people, often with very little variation in the content. Those who get more engagement on their version tend to just be those with bigger/more engaged audiences. Just being first doesn't necessarily mean the content's going to be the best.

    6) Correct. It's something we've discussed and may implement in the future. No ETA at the moment, though.

    7) No, we don't do engagement authority, nor do we have any plans to. Too subjective and variable. An audience member from one demographic might have a much more valid opinion to one publisher than to another, or one comment I publish might be eloquent and insightful, whereas another might just be, “Awesome!”, etc.

  • Jason's correct — Engagement analysis isn't a public product yet. You can see it at work on the postrank.com homepage with a random assortment of sites from our system.

    Engagement scores, however, are based on the analysis you can see on our website or in Google Reader — the engagement metrics when you mouse over a PostRank score on the website, and the PostRank scores themselves. We just don't run the additional analysis to come up with a final score.

    As Jason also noted, you can use what we call thematic PostRank, which compares your content to whatever complement of other content you choose by saving all the sites to the same Google Reader folder, installing our Google Reader extension, then viewing in folder view. That form of analysis compares apples to oranges, as it were, and ranks each site's content compared to the other sites you've selected. As I noted earlier, those, most of our analysis just focuses on your own site's content, so thematic PostRank isn't available in all formats.

    As Jason also noted, you can use what we call thematic PostRank, which compares your content to whatever complement of other content you choose by saving all the sites to the same Google Reader folder, installing our Google Reader extension, then viewing in folder view. That form of analysis compares apples to oranges, as it were, and ranks each site's content compared to the other sites you've selected. As I noted earlier, those, most of our analysis just focuses on your own site's content, so thematic PostRank isn't available in all formats.

    1 – Never intended this to be a comprehensive list. It was an experiment conducted while I was researching Education blogs for a client.
    2 – Probably a question more for Postrank to answer but I believe their specific methodology is covered at http://www.postrank.com/postrank/.
    3 – Again, they should answer this, but I can attest that I use Postrank daily in my feed reader and find their ratings to be reliable in pointing me to more trafficked, bookmarked and engaging posts which is what they're shooting for with the main focus of their tool. They are also the best tool I've found with which to compare a variety of different factors of a blog post to see how it compares with others. No, they don't have a perfect science down and no, they don't have an easy way to compare blog to blog instead of post to post (I had to ask nicely and hope they weren't too busy) but of what's out there, this is one of the better ways to draw comparisons if trying to prioritize blogs you want to reach out to (the original point of the experiment).
    4 – I see what you're getting at but 50 comments on a post is generally going to indicate a better engagement level than 15 comments. And if I'm not mistaken, they take into account length of comments, etc., in their metrics. Again a question for them to address. Hopefully Melanie will come back and offer insight.
    5 – Similar to No. 4, I see where you're going but it depends on how you measure engagement. If I reblog something you originally posted but have more comments and interaction on my post, by many counts I'm more engaging. You are simply more original. But you have a point. Keep in mind, though, that Postrank is an automated tool, not a human analysis engine. Context is impossible for a machine to determine.
    6 – I'm not sure why email metrics come into gauging a blog's engagement level unless you have an email marketing effort for your blog. I get emails from readers sometimes, but wouldn't ever count those in a metric report for my blog. Comments, in-bound links, bookmarks … all the metrics Postrank uses are those I would recommend to a blogger to determine the relative engagement levels and success of their site.
    7 – I disagree wholeheartedly with this. If the site is focused on grade 6 students, and they have more comments and interaction than the site aimed at university presidents and directors, then the grade 6 site has a better engagement level. However, from a PR perspective, you have to analyze the audience you are trying to reach. If you're shooting for presidents and directors, then you don't reach out to the grade 6 blog at all.

    Thank you, so much, for the thoughtful comments. I'll see if Melanie can come back and address some of your questions, too. Very much appreciated.

And if I'm not mistaken, they take into account length of comments, etc., in their metrics. Again a question for them to address. Hopefully Melanie will come back and offer insight.
    5 – Similar to No. 4, I see where you're going but it depends on how you measure engagement. If I reblog something you originally posted but have more comments and interaction on my post, by many counts I'm more engaging. You are simply more original. But you have a point. Keep in mind, though, that Postrank is an automated tool, not a human analysis engine. Context is impossible for a machine to determine.
    6 – I'm not sure why email metrics come into gauging a blog's engagement level unless you have an email marketing effort for your blog. I get emails from readers sometimes, but wouldn't ever count those in a metric report for my blog. Comments, in-bound links, bookmarks … all the metrics Postrank uses are those I would recommend to a blogger to determine the relative engagement levels and success of their site.
    7 – I disagree wholeheartedly with this. If the site is focused on grade 6 students, and they have more comments and interaction than the site aimed at university presidents and directors, then the grade 6 site has a better engagement level. However, from a PR perspective, you have to analyze the audience you are trying to reach. If you're shooting for presidents and directors, then you don't reach out to the grade 6 blog at all.

    Thank you, so much, for the thoughtful comments. I'll see if Melanie can come back and address some of your questions, too. Very much appreciated.

    1 – Never intended this to be a comprehensive list. It was an experiment conducted while I was researching Education blogs for a client.
    2 – Probably a question more for Postrank to answer but I believe their specific methodology is covered at http://www.postrank.com/postrank/.
    3 – Again, they should answer this, but I can attest that I use Postrank daily in my feed reader and find their ratings to be reliable in pointing me to more trafficked, bookmarked and engaging posts which is what they're shooting for with the main focus of their tool. They are also the best tool I've found with which to compare a variety of different factors of a blog post to see how it compares with others.

  • Please do, Laurent, and please share with us. I know there are a lot more out there. I just tried to whittle it down the top 150 or so figuring I could then produce a top 50 with relatively few errors. The manual nature of it all lends itself to oversights, but I'm fairly comfortable we hit the main ones. Please do share yours, however, I'd love to see it and compare.

  • Gary, the Postrank tool you can use in Google Reader only compares posts, not blogs. Postrank compared these blogs as a favor in helping me produce the list. I hear they might be working on a similar tool for public consumption but can't confirm that. What you can do with their tool, however, is compare your posts to other blogs in your niche by putting all the feeds into one folder, then viewing the folder. Your Postrank numbers will show up relative to all the other posts in that folder. That way you can compare each post to other posts in similar blogs.

I hear they might be working on a similar tool for public consumption but can't confirm that. What you can do with their tool, however, is compare your posts to other blogs in your niche by putting all the feeds into one folder, then viewing the folder.

  • I'm starting to get some feedback on some inconsistencies. First of all, there was originally a typo in the link for No. 9 – Learning. That has been fixed. It no longer goes to what appears to be an earlier version of the blog with one post.

    Next, I'm getting some emails from folks who were left off the list for analysis. I anticipated this. Please forward the links to any blogs that are not in the OPML file (see link in story) and, after a few weeks, I'll ask Postrank to re-run the numbers. I don't intend to keep the list up to date as this was an experiment in comparing blogs. But I'm happy to periodically re-run or compare again if the need warrants it.

    I'll respond to more of your comments soon. (I do have a real job. Heh.)

    • First of all, I'm very surprised that Weblogg-ed isn't on the list and I'd love to see where he ranked. In terms of audience size, reach, #of comments per post and such, I'd imagine he ranks higher than just about anybody on that list. And he's definitely on some of those lists you brought in, so I'm perplexed why he wouldn't show up.

      Regardless, please let me know a few weeks before you re-rank the numbers. I'd like to make sure I put up a few more posts during that time span ;) 30 Days is a pretty darn short window.

  • First of all, here's a rather more comprehensive list of education blogs:
    http://www.downes.ca/edurss/feeds.htm

    Second, I am wondering about the correlation between the evaluation of a blog, and the evaluation of a blog post. Are the scores aggregated? Averaged? Normalized?

    Third, what can be said about the sources used by Postrank. For example, Technorati 'authority' information is notoriously suspect. And there's no reliable measure of traffic or readership – surely they don't use Alexa?

    Fourth, the measures used by Postrank are cumulative measures. Counting links and comments, for example. However, this does not take into account (a) diversity – whether the same person links or comments over and over, or whether all the responses come from the same demographiuc community or from around the world, and (b) the propensity of a certain community to give each other 'link love' or 'comment love' .

    Fifth, it's not clear that Postrank takes priority into account. That is to say, something may be blogged by one person, then reblogged by another, where the second person gets more links and responses. So who is more engaging, the second or the first? Giving the cedit to the second simply rewards rebloggers – especially pernicious when the reblogger does not credit the original source (the same thing is a problem on Digg).

    Sixth, there appears to be no method available to Postrank to examine email followers, email conversations, or even mailing list traffic.

    Seventh, one wonders what could be said about the quality of audience. It's one thing to get a bunch of comments from a class of grade 6 students, quite another to get the same number of comments from university presidents and directors.

    Third, what can be said about the sources used by Postrank. For example, Technorati 'authority' information is notoriously suspect. And there's no reliable measure of traffic or readership – surely they don't use Alexa?

    Fourth, the measures used by Postrank are cumulative measures. Counting links and comments, for example. However, this does not take into account (a) diversity – whether the same person links or comments over and over, or whether all the responses come from the same demographiuc community or from around the world, and (b) the propensity of a certain community to give each other 'link love' or 'comment love' .

    Fifth, it's not clear that Postrank takes priority into account. That is to say, something may be blogged by one person, then reblogged by another, where the second person gets more links and responses. So who is more engaging, the second or the first? Giving the cedit to the second simply rewards rebloggers – especially pernicious when the reblogger does not credit the original source (the same thing is a problem on Digg).

    Sixth, there appears to be no method available to Postrank to examine email followers, email conversations, or even mailing list traffic.

    Seventh, one wonders what could be said about the quality of audience. It's one thing to get a bunch of comments from a class of grade 6 students, quite another to get the same number of comments from university presidents and directors.

    • Thank you for the link to your list, Stephen.

      1 – Never intended this to be a comprehensive list. It was an experiment conducted while I was researching Education blogs for a client.
      2 – Probably a question more for Postrank to answer but I believe their specific methodology is covered at http://www.postrank.com/postrank/.
      3 – Again, they should answer this, but I can attest that I use Postrank daily in my feed reader and find their ratings to be reliable in pointing me to more trafficked, bookmarked and engaging posts which is what they're shooting for with the main focus of their tool. They are also the best tool I've found with which to compare a variety of different factors of a blog post to see how it compares with others. No, they don't have a perfect science down and no, they don't have an easy way to compare blog to blog instead of post to post (I had to ask nicely and hope they weren't too busy) but of what's out there, this is one of the better ways to draw comparisons if trying to prioritize blogs you want to reach out to (the original point of the experiment).
      4 – I see what you're getting at but 50 comments on a post is generally going to indicate a better engagement level than 15 comments. And if I'm not mistaken, they take into account length of comments, etc., in their metrics. Again a question for them to address. Hopefully Melanie will come back and offer insight.
      5 – Similar to No. 4, I see where you're going but it depends on how you measure engagement. If I reblog something you originally posted but have more comments and interaction on my post, by many counts I'm more engaging. You are simply more original. But you have a point. Keep in mind, though, that Postrank is an automated tool, not a human analysis engine. Context is impossible for a machine to determine.
      6 – I'm not sure why email metrics come into gauging a blog's engagement level unless you have an email marketing effort for your blog. I get emails from readers sometimes, but wouldn't ever count those in a metric report for my blog. Comments, in-bound links, bookmarks … all the metrics Postrank uses are those I would recommend to a blogger to determine the relative engagement levels and success of their site.
      7 – I disagree wholeheartedly with this. If the site is focused on grade 6 students, and they have more comments and interaction than the site aimed at university presidents and directors, then the grade 6 site has a better engagement level. However, from a PR perspective, you have to analyze the audience you are trying to reach. If you're shooting for presidents and directors, then you don't reach out to the grade 6 blog at all.

      Thank you, so much, for the thoughtful comments. I'll see if Melanie can come back and address some of your questions, too. Very much appreciated.

    • Hi Stephen,

      2) Aggregated.

      3) No, we don't use Alexa. Yes, we use what Technorati does, but a lot more sources, too. (They only use trackbacks.) Our sources are listed here: http://www.postrank.com/postrank#how – and on our site you can see them when you mouse over PostRank scores as well.

      4) Given that you can game Google PageRank the same way if you really want to, I don't think there's an iron-clad defence for this at this point. And really, most dedicated publishers I know invest a fair bit of effort growing their audiences and communities, and don't focus so much on trying to game systems. Those who do… I'm thinkin' it probably shows in their content pretty quickly.

      5) Splogs are pretty much what you just described there when content is just re-posted. And if a fairly mainstream site does it and gets noticed, there are legal repercussions. When content is only somewhat re-posted… well, frankly, that happens all the time. Big stories get picked up by lots of people, often with very little variation in the content. Those who get more engagement on their version tend to just be those with bigger/more engaged audiences. Just being first doesn't necessarily mean the content's going to be the best.

      6) Correct. It's something we've discussed and may implement in the future. No ETA at the moment, though.

      7) No, we don't do engagement authority, nor do we have any plans to. Too subjective and variable. An audience member from one demographic might have a much more valid opinion to one publisher than to another, or one comment I publish might be eloquent and insightful, whereas another might just be, “Awesome!”, etc.

      Any other questions, please let us know. :)

  • Jason,
    Great list! I'm convinced there're more than 150 blogs on edu ;-)
    In general, when there's a community of bloggers (networked, active and so on), on such a popular topic, you'll find 500+ blogs.
    I agree that you've got to compile such list manually. i've done it but I use our application in which i can mix search (semi automated), bookmarking and scrapping, thus I'm able to create list of 100s in day. For example just created one on computer security with 700+ blogs. Then we have an algo to rank them so I know which one are the top.
    May be, time permitting, I'll take your opml, find 500 edu blogs and rank them, then see if we get similar results.

    • Please do, Laurent, and please share with us. I know there are a lot more out there. I just tried to whittle it down the top 150 or so figuring I could then produce a top 50 with relatively few errors. The manual nature of it all lends itself to oversights, but I'm fairly comfortable we hit the main ones. Please do share yours, however, I'd love to see it and compare.

  • Wow, nice list! I've been trying to find blogs that offered more than just the regular fluff. And (partly) succeeded, I've found a few really good ones including yours.

    It's education that's one of the most important parts of my daily life. Not formal education but the right education, you know education that teaches me something I'm actually interested in.
    I think it's important that we get opinions and read the right material. Reading your blog(a long with a few others) has increased a bit of my knowledge on social media. And I think that's why we need feed readers. Not for the news, or latest gossip but to learn from other people out there. I downloaded the xml file and I'm going to for sure import it into my feed reader.

    Jason, thanks for sharing this with us.

    • Gary, the Postrank tool you can use in Google Reader only compares posts, not blogs. Postrank compared these blogs as a favor in helping me produce the list. I hear they might be working on a similar tool for public consumption but can't confirm that. What you can do with their tool, however, is compare your posts to other blogs in your niche by putting all the feeds into one folder, then viewing the folder. Your Postrank numbers will show up relative to all the other posts in that folder. That way you can compare each post to other posts in similar blogs.

    • Jason's correct — Engagement analysis isn't a public product yet. You can see it at work on the postrank.com homepage with a random assortment of sites from our system.

      Engagement scores, however, are based on the analysis you can see on our website or in Google Reader — the engagement metrics when you mouse over a PostRank score on the website, and the PostRank scores themselves. We just don't run the additional analysis to come up with a final score.

      As Jason also noted, you can use what we call thematic PostRank, which compares your content to whatever complement of other content you choose by saving all the sites to the same Google Reader folder, installing our Google Reader extension, then viewing in folder view. That form of analysis compares apples to oranges, as it were, and ranks each site's content compared to the other sites you've selected. As I noted earlier, those, most of our analysis just focuses on your own site's content, so thematic PostRank isn't available in all formats.

  • Thanks Gary. It's also good to visit sites in other niches to read a bit and learn a few things. It's amazing how much you can pick up just browsing. Thanks for the comment.

  • Mobile Technology in TAFE was on our list of blogs surveyed. I don't recall where they ranked as I stopped listing at 50. But as you say, there is the factor that the time of year may have skewed our numbers. Maybe we'll re-run them in the spring time. Thanks for the input.

  • Hi Gary,

    Engagement doesn't actually have anything to do with quantity or publishing volume. It relates to how much a site's readers engage with a site's posts regardless of how many there are. There's more info here: http://www.postrank.com/postrank/

    So a person who publishes once a week could end up with a higher engagement score than someone who publishes 10 times a day. It depends on which site's readers engage more with the posts — leaving comments, writing their own posts linking back, bookmarking, tweeting, etc.

    Additionally, sites are analyzed on their own past performance, not against other sites (until Jason sorted the numbers by rank, of course), so despite being on the same list ultimately, another site's higher or lower ranking than yours won't affect your ranking, since there is no comparison between your site and others in our analysis.

    Additionally, sites are analyzed on their own past performance, not against other sites (until Jason sorted the numbers by rank, of course), so despite being on the same list ultimately, another site's higher or lower ranking than yours won't affect your ranking, since there is no comparison between your site and others in our analysis.

  • How did you figure the engagement score? I looked at the JoanneJacobs blog in Post Rank, and she has 1,400 posts listed. I ran my blog and it showed 12, only a fraction of the total I have on my site.

    Looking at other sites, the Engagement score seems to be mostly a function of quantity, not quality. More posts = higher score.

  • So many sites offer tips with out any application. Even though I don't have an education site, it is nice so see some really examples, using real blogs, in a real niche. You can visit sites like this and look for yourself how you compare in certain metrics.

  • Interesting methodology – and, as Richard says, it's been a slack time for teachers. Don't forget that Southern Hemisphere teachers are still on their summer break (I'm in UK) – so it's good to see at least one Aussie blog in there (Mobile Technology in TAFE) not sure if there are others, as this survey has introduced me to quite a few new blogs, which is good, as often lists can get quite incestous. It's also good, in many ways, that you're not an Education Specialist, so less likely to be influenced by people who's views you agree with.

    • Mobile Technology in TAFE was on our list of blogs surveyed. I don't recall where they ranked as I stopped listing at 50. But as you say, there is the factor that the time of year may have skewed our numbers. Maybe we'll re-run them in the spring time. Thanks for the input.

  • I like the methodology that you used. One thing that might influence the rankings is that in the last 30 days, most teachers and education bloggers were on holiday break. Some of the education blogs that I follow decreased the content output during that 10-15 day period. Also during this time period many education blog readers were on vacation which in turn lead to decreased page views. If you ran the rankings at the end of January or March (months without significant holiday vacations) you might see quite different results.

    • The research was about 5-6 hours and then Postrank probably worked for 2-3 hours parsing and checking all the feeds to come up with the ranking. It was certainly well worth the time invested if the list proves useful.
