How The Cricket Blogs Are Ranked

Ever heard of Cricket Blips?

I hadn't either, till Ankit of All Padded Up pointed me to it.

Cricket Blips is a type of blog aggregator. They've got all the latest cricket news and articles gathered from different websites and blogs collected in one space.

What Cricket Blips also does is rank cricket blogs - Here are the rankings.

It is no surprise that the King of Cricket Bloggers - Jrod of Cricket with Balls fame - is ranked number 1.

Well Pitched is ranked 2nd, while Homer, of "My two cents", is ranked 3rd.

The best part is that all 3 of us - Jrod, Homer, and I - are well ahead of Cricinfo, who are 4th.

Yeah baby!

BCC! is also there on number 5.

What is strange though is that the top tag for Cricket with Balls is Sachin Tendulkar. I don't think Jrod writes that much about Sachin. Does he?

Well Pitched's top tag is Kolkata Knight Riders. Maybe that has something to do with the Fake IPL Player.

Homer's is Jacob Oram! Really? Oram? Homer?

I'm not exactly sure how the blogs have been ranked and scored by Cricket Blips but it has something to do with linking. They explain it all here.

Is your blog there? If not, you can tell them to put it up. Check it out.

    Strange method of ranking i think cricinfo is the number choice of all cricket fans.

  12. Q said...

    Exactly Homer and uve overtaken me on the rankings - thanks to Oram ;-)

  13. Q said...

    Mahatru: Welcome to Well Pitched. I agree with you that Cricinfo is no doubt the #1 choice... but maybe their blogs section is not as popular as some of the other cricket blogs on the web. For news and everything else - Cricinfo, no doubt!

    Having said that, Im still not sure how these rankings work cos some of the more popular blogs are not there...

  14. Tejas said...

    I dont understand this type of rankings. But congrats to those guys who are topped.

  15. Q said...

    Tejas: Niether do we :-) .. and thanks!
