Just in case you were pining for yet another Top Blogs list – Bloglines today announced their one the Bloglines Top 1000 (they used to have a Top 200). They report that at the heart of the metric is how many ‘active’ subscribers that a blog has (with some other secret herbs and spices).
One of the nice features with this Top list is that they present a little graph (a “sparkline” – thanks Jorge of the feed (tiny and not really that specific – but handy at spotting a trend) and show it it’s been trending up or down.
Keep in mind that this is just tracking those who use Bloglines to read feeds. This does mean things are ordered a little different to other Top Blog lists.
Interestingly for me the Top 1000 list puts my blog Digital Photography School at #250 on the list – ahead of ProBlogger at #304 – despite ProBlogger having 4000 or so more subscribers. Obviously ProBlogger readers use Bloglines less than other methods.
Anyway – it’s an interesting metric (well for 10 or 15 minutes anyway).
