Top bloggers from the Philippines on Twitter

So that is the complete top 50 blogs from the Philippines. To help you stay informed on their activities, a Twitter list has been created to regroup their Twitter profiles (when available) together with some other top bloggers from the Philippines 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! 🙂

Philippines’ 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 the Philippines through a combination of well-established tools for digital marketing.

Domain authority and estimated monthly traffic

First, a shortlist of 70 blogs with recent updates was created by screening 130+ of the most prominent blogs in English and some in Tagalog through MOZ’s Domain Authority and SimilarWeb’s monthly estimated traffic as of September 2017. Only the blogs with high domain authority or estimated traffic were kept.

Total social media community

Then, the social media community on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter of each blog in the shortlist was recorded when they were above 1,000 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.

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.
