WhiskyMetrics: Whisky Blog League Table December 2015

Firstly many thanks for all the support, criticism and commentary on our Top 20 post WhiskyMetrics: Top 20 Whisky Blogs – November 2015

The most common theme for commentators was where am I? I suppose it is natural for most to be curious about where they are in life (!) or possibly just in relation to friends or competitors. I have compiled a more complete list – mostly thanks to Sku whose complete list of Whisky Blogs was my go to reference list of active whisky blogs.

Much has been commented on the accuracy of the Alexa metrics and despite all the drawbacks it remains my only independent assessment, sadly not all had enough traffic to make it onto the system but over 200 blogs did, presented here as both a league table (for those that like that sort of thing) and an alphabetical list (for those that don’t and to make it easier to find your site should it be listed). I will probably not go to the lengths again to list every one as many are reasonably volatile or active in terms of changes in their estimated ranking. I’ll just leave it to say that there is a wonderful diversity out there and any of these blogs are worthy of your time and attention so please check them out and see what you like. Again this ranking is by an estimation of traffic (i.e. popularity/visitors) and in no way reflects the time or passion committed to each. As this is a more complete list we have sadly bumped down to our rightful place at #38 – still something we are very proud of 😀

Thanks for reading!

If you are on Sku’s list but not this one then I was unable to determine your metric.

If you are on neither then please feel free to get in touch 🙂

  1. Criticism was unfair – really interesting metric and listing Barry, fascinating to see how we are all doing. Appreciate your labour of love for whisky and whisky blogging in putting this together fella. G

  2. You seem to have left out Sku himself.

    As someone who has no plans to make any money off their blog, I’m not really sure why I have any interest in rankings/traffic but I look from time to time. I am never sure what to make of Alexa’s rankings or the Google Analytics numbers that some people post publicly. I am often ranked higher on Alexa than a number of people who post Google Analytics data that show that their monthly traffic is twice or thrice what WordPress shows me as mine.
