The Top100Bloggers.com staff has seen the largest turn out yet. We have had over 200 new signs ups and now have the community pushing over 400 members. With our new structure and system setup, we have seen over unique visitors shoot up to over 150,000 unique visitors last month alone. We already have over 75,000 unique hits this month and it’s only in the first week of the month. Our traffic has simply sky rocketed, resulting in the traffic to everyone’s blogs raising and the reader count increasing as well.

As many of you know, running a service like this and getting that many hits can cause bandwidth to go up. This community was founded on the basic principal that we wanted to create a place for bloggers to come and be ranked by their visitors. We wanted to create a unity between all bloggers. Our community isn’t restricted to just WordPress users, not just Movable Type users, not just Blogger users, but we are a welcoming community to all bloggers from around the world.

We are very thankful for all the support we have seen through our new user sign ups and the traffic that is being driven to all these blogs. We believe that the traffic cycling through out site has become an invaluable resource for bloggers and webmasters alike.

Top100Bloggers.com is currently looking for sponsors to help cover bandwidth costs and to help pay for the time and commitment that the staff spends on keeping the network quality to the site. We have a few sponsors right now, but we’re looking for some sponsors that are serious about the blogging community. If you are even slightly interested, please contact the management at support@top100bloggers.com.

We at Top100Bloggers.com would like to take this chance again to thank all of the community for accepting our service and helping us create what it is today. We wouldn’t be operating if it weren’t for all the bloggers abroad. We dearly appreciate the support that has been shown to us and all the feedback we have received. Thank you.

As a side note, we hope to be hosting or sponsoring a contest in the near future. We hope to be even more involved in the community than we already are, so stay tuned for news updates throughout the following months.

    I pull myself from Top100Bloggers.com because the rank is based on votes, not based on blog traffic. A site with 16,000 hits is No.4.

    I still prefer site like BlogOfTheDay.

    In my post: http://www.liewcf.com/blog/arc.....-bloggers/

    To let you know, it is based on votes, not traffic. This is because we want to show the users that vote for it, not purely a popularity contest like BlogsOftheDay.com is. BOTD is a good site, it just has a different foundation than we do.

    We rank based on vote to serve as a medium to show who has user interaction and not just hits. It’s easy to get hits, but who actually spends time to read the blog and then rank them accordingly.

    We are sorry to see you leave. We hope you choose to use our service again soon. We try to provide the best fitting resource and service as possible to all the bloggers.

    Didn’t know and had a look at this. IMO the #1 site at the moment on top100bloggers completely discredits the whole system.

  4. LcF (5 comments.) says:

    agree with Ozh.

    I’m not sure what either of you guys are talking about. The first place ranking seems to be in perfectly good order. The list resets weekly so all users have a fair chance.

    I think the site needs some easily accessible explanation. Clicking on the link in this post all I saw in this regard was the brief rules.

  8. Jonathan (83 comments.) says:

    Our site is always open to suggestions regarding how to make it better. If you can offer up some suggestions, feel free to contact us at support@top100bloggers.com. We are always happy to hear from people about how to make our service better.

    Thank you for spending the time to visit our site and we appreciate the support.

    The top blogs listed in the site are far from good. Went to each of their top 3 blogs and was desperately looking for something good in that.

    They should also have an faq/about section explaining what the site is all about and how stuff works.

    I left Top100 because it is turning into a popularity contest. Quite a few sites in the top 10-even the top 20 had me scratching my head as to why (and how) they were being voted on. I ran an experiment of sorts the last day with a few friends of mine-all on in different parts of the country, voting for my site. Needless to say the number of votes never changed.

    Sad to see you leave Beth. We try to accommodate for all users. If you have a suggestion about how we can better serve the community, then I’m all for it. Please, if you want to say something, shoot me an e-mail and I’ll take a vote on it or something of that regard. I don’t want to be losing members just because they aren’t happy with the way things are working out. I know I can’t fit everyone’s need, but I want to try to fit the majority of the members at best.
