London Cyclist has published their Top 50 Cycling Blogs list for 2010. Topping the list is Richard Masoner’s always excellent Cyclelicious, followed by Bike Portland and BikeSnob NYC. No surprises there. What is surprising was seeing EcoVelo at 14th position. Thanks Andreas; we’re honored and pleased. Here’s a bit about the criteria used to rank the sites:
I visit every single cycling blog I’ve ever heard of and I note down certain things such as the number of comments in the last 5 posts (excluding most recent post), Alexa rank and Google inlinks.
Then each of the attributes gets a score, it is normalised and an average is calculated. It basically involves a lot of Excel formulas and plenty of data checking!
I also have a few criteria’s such as: the blogs have to be active and not aimed solely at selling stuff.
