While I was doing my daily blog surfing and social networking routine, I came across my friend Leland’s tweet regarding the Top 32 Best WordPress Related Blogs based on two popular metrics – Google PageRank and Alexa. This list was created by Arthur Kim of The WP Ninja.
As an avid fan and advocate of WordPress, it immediately caught my attention and I clicked on the link to check out the list. I wasn’t surprised to see the likes of Lorelle, Darren Hoyt, WP Tavern, WP Engineer, Justin Tadlock, WP Recipes, WP Hacks and a few others, but I was definitely surprised to see JaypeeOnline on the list. Another pleasant surprise was finding out that my blog’s Google Pagerank is now back to 4. I was aware of the recent Google PR updates but I wasn’t expecting mine to increase.
Anyways, here’s a screenshot I took of the Best WordPress Related Blogs list from WP Ninja.
I’m not sure how often this list is updated but from what I can see, it uses a script to automatically check and fetch the Google PR and Alexa ranking for each blog/URL. Btw, aside from Pagerank and Alexa, you can also sort the list according to the number of Feedburner subscribers. I wonder why my blog along with a few others aren’t displaying anything except a N/A. To see the list for yourself, go to 70+ Best “Blogs About WordPress” To Follow & Read.
There are a few other WordPress related blogs that aren’t included on the list yet and one of those is my friend Leland’s blog – ThemeLab. Oh yeah, I wonder why Weblog Tools Collection and Yoast aren’t on the list? Maybe the author hasn’t updated the list yet. Overall, I’m just happy and honored that JaypeeOnline is listed alongside the best WordPress related blogs in the blogosphere. Anyways, if you want to keep track of the recent WordPress news and developments, this list is a good place to start with.
Do you know of any other WordPress related blog or blogs that aren’t on the list? If you do, please do share it with us or contact the author about it.
This is a great list…I wonder when will my site be included. :)
@Thomas – My Pagerank was 4 about two years ago and I saw it go down to zero. It was only last year that it improved to a 3 and found out it got back to 4 when I saw this list. Don’t worry, it will get back to 4. Just make sure that you adhere to Google’s rules. ;)
Ah I am super jealous. Your page rank went up to a 4 mine dropped from a 3 to a zero for some reason?
@rllqph – Hindi ko lang alam pero yon author ng list na to WordPress lang ang meron sya. Siguro meron ibang lists according to blogging platform na gawa ng ibang bloggers. Thanks! :)

@dimaks – Hehe..yeah, I was surprised not only to be on the list but also to be on that spot. The list has since been updated and more big blogs have been added so now I’m down to 19th. But I’m not complaining, just being in the list is already an honor.
wow you’re on the 15th! gratz! i see that your alexa is having a really good progress. keep it up Jayp!
@Leland – Thanks man! Yeah, I guess I got in coz I blog about WordPress a lot. :D
I’ve contacted the author, suggested blogs like WLTC, Yoast and yours and I’ve seen that he’s updated it already. You definitely deserve to be on the list. :)
Hey Jaypee, congrats on being on the list. I think you deserve it since you post about WordPress frequently.
I too wonder about some of the notable omissions like WLTC, Yoast, and of course my own blog, Theme Lab.
I suppose it wouldn’t be too difficult for Artur to add/remove blogs from the list if he wanted to.
@Dragon Blogger – Thank you! If you feel like you deserve to be on the list, just contact the author. He’s already added some blogs after I posted this. :)
Congrats to making the list, (HEY, why am I not on here:)
@Archon Digital – Yeah, the author has updated it and almost all the big blogs on WordPress are on there now and it is an honor to be listed among them. Thank you!
That’s a pretty elite list you have there, congratulations on getting your blog on that.
@Gem – Thank you! It does feel good but it wouldn’t have been possible without the help and support of friends and loyal readers like you. Also, I use these things to keep me motivated and make me do my best.
Wow! Congrats! You rock! You keep on getting one achievement after another. That must feel sooo good!
@Latief – Thanks for the kind words and the encouragement! :D
Congrats bro, you deserve to be on the list for your effort. Keep the good job :)
