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.
Here is the list of the Philippines’ Top 100 Popular Blogs from January to June 2011. If you want to announce to your readers your achievement, you may download and use the Top 100 Popular Blogs badge below and link it to this article.

Top 100 Most Popular Blogs in the Philippines (as of June 2011)
Top 10 Blogs with Most Unique Visitors (from January-June 2011)
- BatangasToday.com – 246,192 unique monthly visitors
- Rickey.org – 162,051 unique monthly visitors
- DailyContributor.com – 70,079 unique monthly visitors
- Mykiru.blogspot.com – 55,113 unique monthly visitors
- NursingCrib.com – 48,615 unique monthly visitors
- JunAuza.com – 42,393 unique monthly visitors
- JaypeeOnline.net – 38,886 unique monthly visitors
- ChuvaChienes.com – 37,587 unique monthly visitors
- PanlasangPinoy.com – 30,818 unique monthly visitors
- PhilBoxing.com – 29,503 unique monthly visitors
Unique Visitors refers to the number of visitors per month that registered a unique pageview. Of course, the higher the number of visitors, the higher the traffic to the site. However, high traffic alone does not automatically translate to popularity. This traffic must be of high-quality in order to produce quality interaction between the user and the site and, ultimately, effective advertisement to advertisers. This is the reason why, aside from Unique Visitors, three “User Engagement” metrics were also employed in this survey.
Top 10 Blogs with Highest Pageviews per User (from January-June 2011)
- Istorya.net – 15.20 pages viewed per user per visit
- StyleManila.com – 11.20 pages viewed per user per visit
- PinoyFitness.com – 7.90 pages viewed per user per visit
- PinoyAmbisyoso.com – 7.30 pages viewed per user per visit
- ForeclosurePhilippines.com – 7.00 pages viewed per user per visit
- TheFilipinoEntrepreneur.com – 7.00 pages viewed per user per visit
- MotorcyclePhilippines.com – 6.60 pages viewed per user per visit
- FinanceManila.net – 6.20 pages viewed per user per visit
- MattsCradle.com – 5.30 pages viewed per user per visit
- Lynxjuan.com – 5.10 pages viewed per user per visit
Higher Pageviews per User means a site visitor is browsing through several pages on the site, a sign that the blog is useful to the visitor.
Top 10 Blogs with Longest User Time on Site (from January-June 2011)
- StyleManila.com – 17.09 minutes per user
- Istorya.net – 17.05 minutes per user
- ForeclosurePhilippines.com – 15.24 minutes per user
- PinoyFitness.com – 14.43 minutes per user
- PinoyAmbisyoso.com – 12.34 minutes per user
- TheFilipinoEntrepreneur.com – 9.8 minutes per user
- MattsCradle.com – 9.16 minutes per user
- MotorcyclePhilippines.com – 8.61 minutes per user
- FinanceManila.net – 8.36 minutes per user
- GenSantos.com – 5.99 minutes per user
Longer Time on Site means longer interaction period between the site and the user, a sign of the blog’s usefulness to the visitor. Longer interaction could also lead to user loyalty and ad conversion.
Top 10 Blogs with Lowest Bounce Rate (from January-June 2011)
- Lynxjuan.com – 16.8% of visitors viewing only one page
- StyleManila.com – 25.3% of visitors viewing only one page
- Istorya.net – 26.8% of visitors viewing only one page
- ForeclosurePhilippines.com – 32.8% of visitors viewing only one page
- PinoyFitness.com – 32.9% of visitors viewing only one page
- FinanceManila.net – 34.8% of visitors viewing only one page
- TheFilipinoEntrepreneur.com – 35.3% of visitors viewing only one page
- MelvinBlog.com – 35.4% of visitors viewing only one page
- MotorcyclePhilippines.com – 39.6% of visitors viewing only one page
- PinoyAmbisyoso.com – 49.1% of visitors viewing only one page
Bounce Rate refers to the percentage of visits compared to the total number of visitors that viewed only one page on the site. A lower Bounce Rate suggests that the landing page (entry page) was effective and not a disappointment to the user.

iKUWADERNO.com is on the list! Thanks for the update! =D
salamat sa updates!
Do you need to submit your blog in order for it to be included on the list?
If it’s in Ratified.org or Topblogs.com.ph, it’s most probably already in our list. Better still, inform us of the blog URL so we can surely include it in the next update.
oopss nawala ako he he he 🙂 any better luck next time
Hi Dexter, your blog is at #114 in the list. Better improve your stats to be included in the Top 100 next time! 🙂
Siguradong pasok na Dexter ang techathand.net sa next update! 🙂
sikat nga sila wala naman pera. the dough is on the games and streaming. eztvstream, streampinoy and other site like those are racking dollars in big 4 G’s each months.
It depends on one’s purpose for blogging. But if bloggers do want to blog to make money, then you’re correct, bloggers should pursue income more than popularity. This list does not take into consideration the monetary value of the blog or the potential income derived from the blog.
COngratulations sa mga nasa top 100.. more power to pinoy blogs and bloggers
Thank you for the update, but we don’t believe we only had 10K+ UVs. It’s OK, no big deal.
Hi, that’s the average number of unique visitors per month during the last 6 months, based on Compete.com. Estimates provided by Alexa and Compete may indeed be different from actual site data but they provide standardized data for all websites that’s why they’re still useful.
Thanks for the reply James. Is it possible that you can put a column that shows the total points obtained, per site, so we can at least view your overall calculation and easily understand how you came up with the ranking?
Well, we use a “secret formula.” If we release that, then other sites can easily come up with their own version of our list. 🙂 Suffice it to say that we rank all Filipino blog sites we know based on the four factors identified above.
Hi James! I believe the data from Compete.com refers to the average unique visitors per month from US traffic only. I said this because I noticed that my blog’s quancast.com stats for traffic coming from the US is somewhat similar to that of compete.com. Maybe this would explain the discrepancy as mentioned by Coolbuster. 🙂
Confirmed, US traffic lang ang Compete.com, I checked my site’s Compete.com stats and the page said “US Data only”. Checkout
I just added my site, Audio Visual Junkie. Hope I make the list!
Noted. We’ll include your blog in the next update.
Congrats to those who made it to the top 100! I recognize some of them. Cool!
Noted. We’ll include your blog in the next update.
yes, http://www.bazics.net is no.18. congrats!
Congrats indeed! 🙂
You may check if this site qualifies. http://www.ppeso.com thank you
We’ll note your site in the next update, but based on a quick browse of your blog, live streaming posts comprise a majority of the articles posted. We do not include sites with live streaming, downloads, videos, etc. of copyrighted media.
hi james i hope would like to recommend this blog of a friend http://www.southcotabatonews.com i love his blog and the informations he’s been providing for all of us..
Good for them they have a very high traffic.
Hi! Been blogging on ederic@cyberspace (http://ederic.net) since 2001. 🙂
Noted. Your blog will be included in the blogs we will track for the January 2012 update.
This gives us added motivation and desire to strive for more.
Congratulations to all!
http://whatswithjeff.com – Life of a PC Enthusiast and Anime Fanatic V2.0 I hope it get’s in.
I’m a total newbie. How I wish one of my blogs will be included on those lists someday 🙂
Anyways, Congratulations IDOLS! 😀

Congrats sa mga nanalo.. daming “NEW”.
Wah cool! Wish ko lang masama rin blogs ko dito kung qualified.
it sure does take a lot of hardwork to be included in this list. But I’m sure hardwork will pay off!
Please do include http://coffeeafficionado.blogspot.com/ on your next list. Thanks!
I’d like to see my wife’s blog, http://www.unofficialcook.com considered for inclusion. In the rating period 1 Jan 2011 through 30 June 2011 she logged more than 63,000 unique visitors, and it’s a blog written by a Filipino who lives in the Philippines for Filipinos.
I’d like to see my blog, http://www.philfaqs.com considered for inclusion. In the 1 Jan 2011 though 30 Jun 2011 time period it has logged more than 75,000 unique visitors. More than half of those are from the Philippines. The owner/author is an American who lives full time in the Philippines and the subject matter is 100% about living in the Philippines.
I hope to see my blog (PinayMommyOnline.com) again for 2011. I made it last 2010. Hope to make it again this year.
Sorry to be nitpicking but it would be nice if the listed blogs are clickable 🙂
do you have now a new badge code for 2012? I want to apply for the 2012.. 😀
by the way admin, i hope you don’t mind I want to ask all pinoy bloggers to join the Pinoy Bloggers group in FB – https://www.facebook.com/groups/pinoyblog/ – this is for all pinoy bloggers to unite and share ideas, talk about blogging issues and let’s all help and find the best solution.
I’m happy to see Filipino blogs here. Congrats to all. BTW, isn’t Compete’s information on number of unique visitors only came from visitors in the US? I wonder why these blogs have very low UV per month. It would be great if the UV from the Philippines or globally will also be considered. Quantcast shows both US and global visitors. I think TopBlogs.com.ph also rank pinoy blogs according to visitors.
i hope to see my blog http://www.enurse-careplan.com for the next quarter of popular bloss in Phils
hope to see my blog on your next list
