A First-Ever Look At The Top Blogger.com WordPress.com & Typepad.com Blogs?
A First-Ever Look At The Top Blogger.com WordPress.com & Typepad.com Blogs?
by

My friends at Postrank unveiled yet another cool public tool this week. Postrank Labs now allows you to compare and contrast three separate websites based on their engagement scores. Consider it kind of a Compete.com view of a given blog or website’s engagement rather than traffic.

Something I noticed about Labs was that it also delineated out five subdomains within each website and scored their respective engagement score. This was the first I’d ever seen someone have the ability to determine differences between subdomains. Certainly, the information is there and accessible somehow (otherwise Postrank wouldn’t have it), but I’d not seen it yet.

I’m sure some techy is going to make fun of me for not tapping into publicly available API data and cross-grid hexing some morpheous node to flip on the sphincter, but I don’t know how to do that, so put a sock in it and get back to your World of Warcraft, dork.

The division and comparison of subdomains is interesting, even exciting, because it gives public relations professionals, marketers and anyone else trying to determine which blogs are more important, impactful or influential the ability to do so within WordPress.com, Blogspot.com (Blogger.com) and Typepad.com blogs. If a blog is run from one of those services and is “hosted” or contained within the WordPress.com servers, for example, it appears as blogname.wordpress.com. When you typically run traffic or engagement reports on the domain, you get results for everything on WordPress.com which is essentially useless.

Being the general pain in the ass I can be, I asked Carol Leaman, Postrank’s lovely (and patient) CEO, if I might get my hands on the sub-domain data for the three services mentioned. She gave me that and then some. (So much so that I can’t possibly cover it in this post. Hint.)

Without further ado, here’s a listing of the top 10 blogs, based on cumulative Postrank engagement scores (look here to learn what that encompasses) for the last three months, of each of the three major blogging subdomains. To access more of the lists, you or your developer (provided they aren’t tied up with Lord of the Rings … heh) can apply for and access that data through Postrank’s API.

    I partially agree with your points. Yeah, it may be possible that WordPress have some downsides but still it is considered as utmost platform for blogging. No doubt, that Google’s Blogger is also an exceptional blogging platform and a toughest competitor of WordPress but due to added flexibility, powerful plugins, and SEO friendliness, WordPress is more widely used through the world. By the way, Kudos to you guys for developing such intuitive tool.

  • Susan Gosselin

    I don’t know how I managed to miss this post.  Just stumbled upon it today.  These results really give me pause.  Seth Godin’s the only person in the social media sphere to break into this list? Portugese education?  The top 10? I find these results mystifying.  No Slate, Huffpost, major publication blogs?  Are those blogs even counted, because they are attached to a major website? 

    If I’m making a PR list to contact bloggers, this isn’t particularly helpful.  I’ve been doing a lot of this lately, BTW.  The major pr list generation engines have started adding bloggers into their results.  And that’s helpful.  But it absolutely no substitute for footwork.  You have to actually visit each and every one of those sites, check out the content they’re covering, see what their narrative is, their audience, and so on.  They may be nuts.  Sure, they may be covering your category, but they may be getting an audience talking about why every business in your category sucks.  Their traffic is important, to be sure.  But I would almost rather work with a sane blogger with great content and a small audience than a blowhard with a big audience.  These tools are, at best, an interesting piece of introductory information.

    Frankly, these results raise serious questions for me.  I’ve been messing with a lot of measurement tools lately, and I’ve been perplexed by a lot of the results I’m seeing. I know they’re missing a lot.  I feel like it’s only getting about 70 percent of the true results.

    Honestly, if you want to get the real truth, I think you have to hire NetBase or KD Paine or something.  What the heck.

    • Keep in mind, Susan, these are not only rankings from a couple years ago, but are rankings of each platform’s hosted blogs. HuffPo, etc., are self-hosted, therefore would not be in the rankings. These are just rankings of the most popular blogs within the WordPress.com or Blogger.com or TypePad.com domains. Anyone hosting their site on software outside the free offerings of these platforms isn’t listed.

      Thus, it’s not a reliable list if you’re segmenting by topic.

    PageRank is probably one of the most important algorithms ever developed for the Web. PageRank is not simply based upon the total number of inbound links. The basic approach of PageRank is that a document is in fact considered the more important the more other documents link to it, but those inbound links do not count equally.good points here about Trust now being a major factor in search engine results, that goes with what Rand and others have been saying too. this also settles for me the value of a natural approach to gaining backlinks and not getting a huge bunch of them, or a large # of high pr backlinks in a short period of time – it rather undermines the Trust factor.
    I do wonder what you think of bing and how Trust does/will play a role in their results. it seems to me from a rather preliminary and cursory look at some results and comparing those to over at google and yahoo, that bing ofter relies more on the keyword/s being the actual url,

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
    Why American men should boycott American women

    http://boycottamericanwomen.bl…/

    I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

    American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

    This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

    BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

  • really interesting list you've got!!!

  • There are too many great host of blog that available such as TypePad, Live Journal and Blog. but most of people use Blogger and WordPress as their blog engine and host. I am currently using wordpress and typepad for my blogs..I think these are the best platform out there to reach audience as well as search engines.

  • What a shock to see my blogspot blog (http://stacievaughansblog.blogspot.com) to be listed here!!! I actually switched to my own domain on WordPress less than 2 weeks ago. I figured it was about time I got my own domain! Thanks for sharing this!

  • QuantCast lets you see stats by subdomain (but obviously you have to type them all in manually)

  • I'm curious why some bloggers choose to stay on these platforms. I started on blogger but moved on to my own domain a long time ago. I still keep those blogs live just to redirect people to the new URL. There's a lot of advantages to using your own domain.

    • Good question, Sandra. I think for most it's just a matter of convenience
      and less hassle. While you and I might be comfortable with the tech, most
      people aren't. FTP is something most people think is a package delivery
      service (come to think of it, it kinda is … heh). But at the same time, I
      agree that self-hosted is much more versatile. Still, these folks are doing
      something right and on a hosted platform.

      • I wouldn't mind not having to deal with bugs every time WordPress gets updated!

    • Sandra, I'm surprised at the caliber of the sites that are still on these platforms too. Like Jason says, it's probably just for convenience. Plus, having it hosted on a platform like this means they don't have to deal with constant updates and the threat of their blogs getting hacked. Still, I would suggest to them to get their own domains as that often helps out a lot with SEO. Then again, I don't get hundreds of retweets for anything I write, so maybe they're on to something. :)

      For at least a few,  it’s the belief that Google can survive a DDOS better than anything they can afford to run themselves.  I know that’s true for Shakesville which got DDOS’ed off their own server back to blogger.

    • sandra i am agree with Brandon.. plus maybe for many is just the start and after the way they develop will have a private domain ..

  • ahestan.wordpress.com is for “Omid hosaini” not “hope hosaini”. correct that please.

    • Corrected. Thank you!

  • Does this include WordPress, Typepad or Blogger blogs that use a custom domain name (myblog.com) versus the hosted subdomain one (myblog.wordpress.com)?

    • To my knowledge, no. It's an analysis of subdomains only, but I'll leave
      that up to Postrank to confirm.

    • This only includes platform-hosted domains, so not myblog.com that happens to use WordPress behind the scenes, for example. That said, Ilya was in contact with Matt Mullenweg and we may be getting a hold of those custom domain sites on the WordPress platform, which would be some pretty cool data to slice and dice. Stay tuned!

  • Very interesting. No surprise that porn, politics, and pop culture are in the top ten. No surprise about Google's rank either. I AM intrigued by those bloggers who have kept their names private. I'll have to check those out.

    Look forward to more info in the (hint) future.

    Posting a link from my blog in tomorrow's post.
