During the first six months of 2011, we assessed the performance of more than 200 blogs using four (4) measures related to Website Traffic and User Engagement. The result: a list of the Top 100 Popular Blogs in the Philippines.
As we’ve explained before, high traffic alone does not make a site popular. A truly popular site has HIGH-QUALITY TRAFFIC, which is a combination of high number of visitors and high level of interaction between the user and the site. A detailed explanation of these metrics can be found in our post 100 Most Popular Blogs in the Philippines in 2010.

As promised, here now is our list of the 100 Most Popular Philippine Blog Sites of 2010, a complement to our previous post on the 50 Top-Ranked Blogs in the Philippines.
Our original 50 Top-Ranked Blogs survey utilized Alexa traffic rank. For this new list, we measured “blog popularity” using two key factors: Traffic and Engagement.

Yes, we know, the Alexa system has its weaknesses. But still its objective data — which is based on site visits, user pageviews, time on site, and search traffic stats, among others — can provide blog owners with an idea of how well their blogs fare with other blogs.
Without further ado, we present below the Top 50 Philippine Blogs in 2010, based on their 3-month Alexa traffic rank.

With Facebook.com easily becoming one of the most-visited websites on the web, it pays to have your blog connected to Facebook too. Using Facebook’s Share and Like buttons, a reader can forward your post to his or her friends or simply announce to the Wall that he/she likes your blog post. Through this word of mouth scheme, you can advertise your content with no additional cost.
We searched the net for the best, easy-to-use Facebook Like and Share plugins for WordPress blogs. Here are our selected picks.

I tried to automatically upgrade our blog today using the Upgrade link in the WordPress Dashboard, but it failed because of an error:
Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate … in /wp-includes/http.php on line 1358
The “fatal error” might be a bit scary to see, but don’t worry because the solution is going to be easy.

Up until last week, if you searched the hotly-coveted keywords “Make Money Online” in Google, you’ll see that one of the top-ranked results is the blog Moneymakerinfo.blogspot.com.
Now, if you go visit the site, you’ll see a Blogger.com’s announcement saying “The blog you were looking for was not found.”
It appears this top “make money online” blog has been deleted by Blogspot/Blogger, a blog platform owned by Google.

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.
(See also: 50 Top Blog Sites in the Philippines 2010)
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.

Last week, I received an email from the Blogbank team that they have already deposited my earnings from them. I checked and it was indeed credited to my bank account already.
This explains why the title of this post ends with an exclamation point (Paid by Blogbank!), as opposed to my other Blogbank article which asked, Got paid by Blogbank? Apparently, I was wrong to ask that question before because I was already paid and I just didn’t check my account!

It feels weird making a new blog post after almost three weeks of resting. Yes, it’s been almost three weeks since I made my last post (see Free magazines for Filipinos posted on November 15).
This posting hiatus happened for two reasons. One, I went to Singapore and Indonesia from November 17 to 23 and didn’t have the time to make any new blog post while I was away.
The second and more important reason is that the posting break was actually an experiment of mine. I was trying to check if blogging can indeed give passive income, and this I did by comparing my Google Adsense income before and after my last blog post.
Here are the results of this experiment.
