Top Blogs in the Philippines – 2009
Finally, we bring you our listing of the Top 50 Blogs in the Philippines for the year 2009, ranked based on each blog’s 3-month Alexa.com traffic rank.
We started monitoring blogs in 2008 (see our 2008 Top 50 Philippine Blogs list) and, in 2009, we see a diverse collection of old and new blogs alike.

In this list, 19 blogs or 20% of the Top 50 entered the list for the first time in 2009. They either became popular or started only in 2009. This means the length of time a person has been blogging does not necessarily translate to higher traffic rank.
The complete Top 50 blogs list below.

We recognize that the Alexa ranking system is not perfect, however, it still provides objective information about the popularity of a website that’s why we are using it for this list.
Some blogs tracked on the list are not one exclusive blog alone. On the same domain may be some more sub-blogs or sub-sites, which may affect the rank of that domain.
Our list of the Philippines’ Top Blogs ranks only blogs that are “Filipino-made” or “made primarily for the Philippine market.” The blogs were primarily taken from the list in Topblogs.com.ph and Ratified.org. We excluded blogs with no new posts in the last 3 months and also whose majority of posts:
- feature nude or sexy pictures or videos of people;
- offer free streaming or download of copyrighted music, videos, movies and other media;
- offer downloads or provide links to downloads of themes, layouts, games, software, etc.;
- promote sex, violence, terrorism, or discrimination; or
- are mere aggregate of other blogs and sites
Corporate blogs and subdomain blogs which cannot be separately ranked are also excluded from the list.
If you know a blog that should be included here, please contact us so we can include it in the next update.
