Top 10 Blogs on pfblogs.org by Total Clicks

This article was written by in Uncategorized. 5 comments.

As of Wednesday night, here are the top 10 blogs on pfblogs.org, when sorted by the highest number of clickthroughs since the aggregator’s humble beginnings in February 2006. I wouldn’t call this a “fair” list, as it does favor blogs that have been listed longer and that post more often. Later, I’ll present the top 10 blogs sorted by clicks per post.

10. Consumerism Commentary with 2,948 clicks! <elvis>Thankyouverymuch.</elvis>
9. It’s Just Money with 3,129 clicks.
8. MyMoneyForest with 3,225 clicks.
7. AllFinancialMatters with 3,807 clicks.
6. Detached Trader with 4,496 clicks.
5. The Housing Bubble with 4,833 clicks.
4. Boston Gal’s Open Wallet with 4,854 clicks.
3. Free Money Finance with 5,815 clicks.
2. Consumerist with 7,443 clicks.
1. Seeking Alpha with 13,271 clicks!

Seeking Alpha is an aggregator of a number of blogs, and I would imagine their large click count is driven by a massive number of posts. Next we’ll look at the top ten blogs by clicks per post, which may be a better indicator. While it may only indicate who writes the catchiest titles, it’s still fun to work out the statistics.

Looking forward to the list of clicks per post blogs. It will be interesting to see how much catchy a title can be (maybe a rank of most clicked posts can tell us more about that or at least it will show what people are interested in).

Of course it is not fair; the webmaster himself is on #10 !:) But you still managed to beat MyMoneyBlog and Blueprint For Financial Prosperity, the two blogs I was expecting to see in the list so that pretty good :)

Very impressive stats on pfblorgs.org. I am sure the clicks per post stat will be interesting to see as well.

One factor that may effect number of clicks is the time of post, since certain hours are busier than others. But who knows?

It would be great to see a regular weekly or monthly posting about the most about clicks per post in the last week/month. I think that it would allow bloggers to test what works from week to week or month to month.
