Top Church of Christ Blogs (July 2009)

Helped by this? Tell a Friend! ---->

Thanks to Jay Guin for updating the list. It is a lot of work and hadn’t been done since January. I kept this blog out of the running on the original list. I don’t like to post something if I have a horse in the race. But Jay insisted I included my blog in the list. If my memory is right my ranking didn’t change if I had been in the previous list. So here are the results:

    1. Thanks, Wes. I didn’t realize you had found my blog on alexa before I did this morning. I should have read the comments before I tried to find it myself.

      Also, thanks Matt for adding my blog to your list.:)

  1. I’m staggered at being #23 and looking at the other names — I guess I’d better get writing — I didn’t realize I had more than about 5 readers!

    1. Les,

      I am not sure how to get alexa to recognize it. I would recommend installing the alexa toolbar for a start. Then when you visit your blog, maybe that will help it see you are out there with a little more frequency? Not sure other than that. Alexa is seeing you have incoming links.

  2. Hey just found this post. Looks like I’m a donkey among stallions 🙂 Actually I’m honored to just make the list.

    I’ve found that Alexa is a good program for checking my blog’s rankings when it comes to page views (or clicks), but it doesn’t pick up your readers, feedburner readers or email readers such as feedblitz. That means that it’s pretty tough to get a real picture of actual readers from Alexa.

    I’ve looked, I’m not sure there’s actually a program that checks all those things. Do you know?

    1. Feed readers do nothing for your traffic unless the person reading clicks a link into your blog. Feed readers use bots to scan for new content that don’t show up as visits. They take the data and show it to subscribers via email or web interfaces like bloglines or google reader. So you can have 1000+ readers via feedreaders and still make #30 on the list. It isn’t likely because if your blog is really read by that many subscribers, you would almost certainly get tons of traffic due to click ins, etc.

      So there is no one way to quantify all of it. In an ideal world people would submit to me their average traffic for a month defined by average daily visitors (which wordpress doesn’t even give in their stats) along with the number of subscribers (email + bloglines + google reader, etc). Then we could come up with a system to weight it all and try to quantify it into a better, more accurate list.

  3. That’s an excellent explanation. I’d been told the same thing by my “internet guru.” Although Alexa doesn’t give a true view of actual “readers” of a blog, it’s still fun to look at 🙂
