Top 30 Financial Blogs

Are you reading the right stuff?

Alexa.com is a web information resource that -- among other things -- ranks websites by their traffic data.

Below is the May 2007 Alexa rankings I compiled of 30 popular financial blogs. The ranking is measured against all US websites in the Alexa universe, blogs or otherwise.

For this list, I excluded the huge financial behemoths, and to make the cut, each blog had to be ranked in the top 1,000,000 most popular US websites. Links to most of these blogs are included further down on this page, under Links.

This list is fascinating evidence that quality content virally finds its own audience. Congrats to all the winners, and happy reading.

Thanks for flagging this, dk. I had no idea.

If good writing is the key, then The dk Report should be gracing that list soon...

You forgot barry ritholtz at 28,000 and maoxian at 265,000.

dk said...

Hi anon...forget Ritholtz? Impossible. He's "The Big Picture" at #2. Yes, maoxian is a very good blog, along with at least a dozen more that aren't on the list. It was hard making those choices.

Steven...Value Blog Review is actually in a class by itself and deserves a well-earned exception. You provide a great service with your sharp-eyed commentary. Thanks for all the times I've visted VBR.

Alexa is bullshit and I hope they file bankruptcy, within the week.

My bullshit blog pulls in more traffic than 75% of those retards.

However, unlike everyone else, I have a ban on all readers over the age of 47 1/2.
