Top 50 Philippine blogs in 4Q 2008

James Ryan Jonas

Our last ranking of top Filipino blogs based on Alexa rank was made in August, third quarter of 2008. After that post, we decided not to monitor the ranking of blogs every month because we didn’t think it would provide a lot of value. Instead, we opted to simply track the Alexa ranking of Filipino blogs every quarter.

And so we bring you the listing of the Top 50 Philippine Blogs in the 4th Quarter of 2008 based on their 3-month Alexa rank.

Ranked by Alexa’s 3-month traffic rank


The blogs were identified from listings in,, and If you have or know a blog that should have been included here, please contact us so we can include it in the next update.

Do note, though, that the blogs we rank exclude those whose majority of posts:

  • feature nude or sexy pictures or videos of celebrities and other people;
  • offer free streaming or download of copyrighted music, videos, movies and other media;
  • provide links to free 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.

The Alexa ranking system may not be perfect but we use it because it still provides objective information about the apparent reach and popularity of Filipino blogs.

Who’s Hot? Who’s Not?, and are still the leading Pinoy blogs today. They have been occupying the top spots ever since we started the ranking last year.
