It is official! As of today’s update StockTradingToGo is sitting high at #2 on the Money Crashers ranking list of top investing blogs. I was added in the system yesterday and STTG is #47 overall out of a few hundred blogs.
What makes the Money Crashers ranking unique is that it is not the classic (and lame) sorted by alexa only setup. Site owner Andrew tells me, “Our goal with this list was to make it very accurate by factoring in a variety of metrics into a single score rather than just ranking based on one metric like Alexa. It’s a lot more comprehensive that way. ”
The list factors in total RSS subscribers, total twitter followers, alexa score, compete ranking, technorati authority ranking, google pagerank, yahoo total inbound links, SEOmoz rank, and even SEMrush total Organic value to calculate a score out of a possible 100.
Now, being realistic, my #2 ranking for investing will only be relevant for so long. Let’s face it, if Barry Ritholtz, Calculated Risk, Kirk, Paul Kedrosky, Prieur, etc joined then I’d be falling down the ranking pretty quickly. But hey, I’ll gladly bask in the glory for now.
Thanks Andrew for including STTG, Money Crashers for the win 🙂
