Top 50 Philippine blogs in 4Q 2008

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.

The Philippines’ Top 50 Blogs in the 4th Quarter of 2008
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.

Former #2, however, dropped 10 places this time to settle at #12.

But before we come to that, let’s congratulate first all bloggers who made it to this quarter’s Top 50 list!

Kudos to all of you!

  1. Oooh, I’m declining! Awesome. πŸ˜› LOL. I guess that’s what happens when you only blog 8 entries in 2008. And so far, just one in 2009. Still not bad for a Blog Slacker.

  2. @joey, just work on increasing traffic to your blog para next time, masama ka na sa list πŸ˜‰

    @randomdetox, congrats on being #33!

    @fruityoaty, just 8 entries in 2008 and 1 in 2009 and yet you’re still #42? That’s quite a feat! That probably means your previous posts still appeal to certain groups of people who are looking for those information. Good job for a “blog slacker”! Hehe…

    @Boy, congrats on being one of the top gainers in this ranking!

  3. Ang layo ko. I bet I’m out of this in the next update. Lalo na ngayon na super busy being a fourth year graduating student na mejo alanganin sa Math:p hehe XD

    @marhgil, I’m sure next time mauunahan mo na ako πŸ˜‰

    @jehz, sinimulan ko i-monitor ito nung April 2008 kaya sa April 2009 yung 1st year report. From the looks of it, mukhang isa ka, kung nde ikaw mismo, yung biggest gainer in 1 year. From 102,719 in April 2008 to 48,835 rank a year later. Astig!
