It immediately demonstrates the relative weakness of this measuring method, because the first 3 mentioned here are on Blogspot which is a site with millions of blogs….There are many more Travel Blogs on Blogspot. So when you go further with this without something else to measure you will end up with hundreds of Travel blogs ranking #8…..
I’ve added the category Internet Graveyard to this post as frothy passed away.

Very interesting ranking system…
Just shows what crap Alexa still is and always has been. It can also be manipulated. My site has addresses in languages other than English (Chinese, German etc.) but Alexa measures all these as separate sites, doesn’t aggregate them – seemingly the reverse of Blogger.
Yes, it seems somewhat dubious to consider the Antarctica Research Adventure, while I’m sure a riveting read, to be the 8th most popular site on the Internet.
if they have they blogspot rank of #8 then they actually have no rank because they are not viewed as to have enough to traffic to be seperate from the main blogspot domain.
plus this list misses, vagabondish, my site, and everything everywhere- all sites with an alexa below 100,000
Not to knock the fact that Happy Hotelier made the list, but Alexa IS a silly ranking system indeed. No one should take it seriously. Way too many great blogs were missed in this case…
I do believe there is not one all encompassing ranking system. The technorati ranking I have used for some time has its failures as well.
Hiya, well completely agree that there are no ideal ranking solutions, but they can all be used as a benchmark. Congratulations on doing so well though 🙂
Well, it appears that those of us who read your blog agree that you’ve earned a top ranking! Congratulations! (Howya been, by the way?)
