Top 50 Blogs from Indonesia 2018

Top 50 Blogs from Indonesia 2018

With the largest digital population is Southeast Asia, Indonesia gathers a vibrant community of local and foreign bloggers in diverse themes. The following Top 50 blogs from Indonesia regroups the most popular blogs from thought-leaders and trendsetters in Indonesia, both in Indonesian and English.

In the same manner as for broader business in Indonesia, digital users in Indonesia must primarily be engaged in Indonesian language to reach the country’s larger audiences.  In opposition to other countries of the region which primarily use English, many of the most popular blogs are published in Indonesian, with some blogs in English from expats or English-speaking Indonesian.

Whatever the language, the array of themes of popular blogs are very diverse. The usual successful themes of travel, food, beauty, fashion, tech and business/money are obviously well represented, but certain Indonesian specificity also manifest in a few popular blogs, such as motorcycles or singing birds.

For those who would like to go further and plan to expand their blog or business through Internet, consider buying our spreadsheet of 400 top blogs of ASEAN-5 to easily find partners for influencer marketing and SEO.

List of the Top 50 blogs from Indonesia

After carefully combing more than 130 blogs from various themes and industries with the method detailed below, here are the results of the most popular blogs from Indonesia. They are primarily blogs from single authors, but the most popular ones often have multiple others.

Whether in Indonesian or English, or both, they collect personal opinions and/or tips for a unique or multiple themes, with a niche focus or targeted to mass audiences. The obvious dichotomy is that blogs in Indonesian are almost entirely targeted to Indonesian people, while those in English aim at other markets as well as the local expat and English-speaking community.

Each blog’s main themes have been added to make the list more user-friendly and help you learn about blogs that correspond to your interests… or the product or service you might want these influencers to talk about.

Top bloggers from Indonesia on Twitter

So here is the complete lsit of top 50 blogs from Indonesia. To help you stay informed on their activities, we created a Twitter list to regroup their Twitter profiles (when available) together with some other top bloggers from Indonesia active on Twitter.

You can check what they are up to and follow the whole list to keep in touch with them all at once. Of course, don’t forget to follow @ASEANUP too! 🙂

Indonesia’s top blogs selection criteria

Though the highest ranking blogs and websites in many “top” lists are often legitimate, when a single tool is used to rank these websites the middle and lower ranking ones are often not the most relevant, because of the inherent characteristics of the tool used. That’s why the previous list has been created by carefully selecting the 50 most influential blogs from Indonesia through a combination of well-established tools for digital marketing.

Note that a few popular Indonesian blogs have been left out because they talk about political or religious topics which are not relevant to business.

Domain authority and estimated monthly traffic

First, a shortlist of 130 blogs with recent updates was created by screening 250+ of the most prominent blogs in Indonesian and English through MOZ’s Domain Authority and SimilarWeb’s monthly estimated traffic as of March 2018.

Only blogs with high domain authority or estimated traffic were generally kept, but several blogs, especially in Indonesian, do not have a reliable Domain Authority or traffic estimation, so these results were mitigated with the total social media community.

Total social media community

The social media community on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter of each blog in the shortlist was recorded when they were above 1,000 followers, and Youtube when it was above 5,000 followers. These communities were added to create a “total social media community” for each blog and indicate the general popularity of the blog/blogger on social media.

This was important to rank blogs the middle and end of the list, as some of their estimated traffic scores were unavailable, even though they often gather large online communities of tens of thousands.

Final ranking 

Finally by combining SimilarWeb’s estimated monthly traffic (weighed 2) and the total social media community (weighed 1) for each blog, the shortlist was ordered from the most to least influential. The top 50 blogs obtained through these aggregated criteria were finally retained to ensure the most relevant references and measure blogs through their relative influence in one useful list.

    1. Hi,
      Do you mean the criteria for selection and ranking?
      It is detailed in the last part of the article “Indonesia’s top blogs selection criteria”.
      Cheers

  1. Thank you so much for including me in the top 50! I’m soooo proud and happy.

    I have further information about my blog:

    My facebook page is: facebook.com/ndofans and it 3,514 followers.
    I have personal facebook account too: facebook.com/dzofar and it has 6319 followers.

    1. Hi,
      Congratulations to you!
      We made the choice to only refer to Facebook pages, no personal accounts. However, we could not include your Facebook page because access seems to be restricted and we cannot see it.
      Is it only allowed for people in Indonesia?
      Cheers

  2. Dear aseanup,

    Zenius Blog is probably one of the highest traffic blog in Indonesia.
    https://www.zenius.net/blog
    by April 2018 it has :
    2,500,000++ pageviews
    2,100,000++ unique sessions.
    997,000++ social media community

    However, the blog was part of the main web which is zenius.net. You can contact me for more info about zenius.

    Regards,

    Glenn Ardi
    Zenius Blog Editor

  3. Could we know what the evaluation criteria are like? The problem is, in my opinion, that there are still many other blogs with high traffic, but they may not be highlighted here.

    1. Hi,
      You may find details about the selection in the bottom section “Indonesia’s top blogs selection criteria”.
      Cheers
