Just Saying

I know some people don't hold much truck with blog ranking sites but novembers's wikio rankings have just been published and I'm now 2nd. (I've also moved from 1244 to 152 out of all blogs on wikio). I expect this to fall back a long way next month the boost being mainly due to hosting the session.*

Of course this does not necessarily mean much as some blogegrs aren't indexed on wikio and others do not employ Twitter to the same extent. Nonetheless I'm pretty pleased that people think my blog is worthy of their time.

I'd like to say thank you to everyone that reads/comments on my blog and hope that you continue to do so. Those of you who retweet my blog posts or link from their own posts are also much appreciated.

That is all. Cheers!

*And indeed Reuben @TaleofAle (who hosted it last month) has fallen from 15 back to #42

#1 Pencil and Spoon  
#2 Beers I've known
#3 Are you Tasting the Pith
#4 Beer Reviews
#5 Shut up About Barclay Perkins


  1. For the life of me, I can't get wikio to rank my blog. I've done eveything I'm supposed to, yet they foresake me.

    *You can't see me but I'm shaking my fist in the air*

  2. I submitted it and had to wait about three months fo rit to be listed i think. Did you submit it to wikio uk or .com as they're two different sites though I've seen some US blogs in the UK ranking.

  3. Damn you Steve, you stole my wikio! I expect recompense in the form of beer this weekend.

  4. sent it packing you mean ;) and no fear on the beer front, see pic a few posts back...

  5. A moment to savour! Well done and regardless of the Session boost, yuor blog is up there with the best of them.

    Craig, Wikio have cast me out into the wilderness..I had fun while it lasted...one day I may return.

  6. While I don't wish at all to rain on your parade, I confess myself bemused at Wikio's claim that your blog - currently rated number 25,377,367 by Alexa, and with only 59 links in - comes so far ahead of, eg, Adnams Beer News, ranked 410,519 by Alexa and with 1,171 sites linking in.

  7. Well for a start, wikio only lists those blogs that are submitted to it and Adnams would not qualify being an industry blog (brewdog was removed from the ranking). Wikio is just one of many indicators that may be used to monitor performance, its not so much the absolute ranking but the change in ranking since I was first listed that I am pleased about. Of course, I expect to drop down again next month as I mentioned above.
