A final note in relation to blogs without rankings

There are a few reasons why some blogs don’t have a rank:

  • Newer blogs will not have an Alexa ranking
  • Low traffic
  • Livejournal: Alexa doesn’t support this blogging platform regardless of traffic. This affects three blogs: absolute ayanadoes my bomb look big in this and oh ayana. Which is a pity because, for example, noodlies reckons does my bomb look big in this is an established and popular blog .

Next update?

Noodlies intends to publish the next list on 1 December 2013 and then quarterly after that (resources depending, it’s a bit of work!).

Feedback?

  • Your Sydney food blog isn’t listed? Leave a comment and I’ll add for the next round.
  • Do you find this list and the ranking useful?
  • Any suggestions or feedback?

Share your feedback by leaving a comment :).

Until then, happy reading!

    This list makes me so happy! So many sydney food bloggers, I may well find myself sitting hours just clicking through the links to discover some lovely new blogs! Thank you so much, it is very useful indeed! And to think you’re going to make this an ongoing project and inviting new bloggers to join- you are the coolest! I’d love to be part of your next list!

  2. Alison@streetfood

    So much work to put this together. Just a question though – there was a considerable amount of movement (up and down) for so many blogs. What else changed between the last time you ran the Alexa rank? If there’s that much variation in just a few months, is this the best metric to use? Is there a combination of a few different ranks you could use, weighting each one?

    • Thang Ngo

      Hard to say why there’s been changes, speaking for my site, I’ve noticed significant increase in traffic in past six weeks – if I had to guess overall, seems like most blogs have had decent increase in traffic. An average of ranking system would be good but there’s no other comparable system – Urbanspoon for example is not a traffic ranking system and more importantly doesn’t include recipe sites :)

  3. GourmetGetaways

    Well done!!!
    I love your list, it looks like I need to stop by a few more blogs and say hi!
    There are some blogs I hadn’t even heard of yet. I would love my blog to be ranked but I am not based in Sydney. I do write about food in Sydney from time to time but I am a food a travel website (similar to Not Quite Nigella). Is there any chance of fitting into a future ranking down the track?

  4. Andy

    Hi Thang – awesome effort. We’d love it if you checked out paintingthebridge.com. it’s very local mostly just Newtown and it’s very personal but it is at least ostensibly a restaurant review blog
    Cheers
    Andy
