Kent Shaffer’s Top 200 Blogs

church relevanceKent Shaffer periodically publishes a list of the Top 200 Christian blogs, regardless of denomination, in his blog “Church Relevance.”

He takes 5 easily available indicators of web traffic and averages them. shows up at 133, a little higher than the last time. Matt Dabbs’ “Kingdom Living” also makes the list.

I have to point out that Edward Fudge and Al Maxey don’t appear because their web sites aren’t blogs.

If you host a blog that has numbers similar to those shown on the list, you’ll want to let Kent know in the comments to his post, so he can include you in his next survey. Surely the hardest part of what he does is find the blogs to rank.

    I looked at the TOP 200 list but could not understand the last 5 (I believe). Can you tell me how to understand what the numbers there represent, or where to find the information. Maybe I really don’t need to know?

    Congratulation on making the list.

    There’s a “legend” at the bottom of the list where the terms are defined. Alexa measures the number of visits on a rolling three-month average. The Compete column (immediately to the right of Alexa) measures unique visitors per month. These are different numbers but strongly correlated.

    The other measures are not strongly correlated at all. You can find their definitions in the Legend.

    Thanks. I feel stupid for having asked. I sailed right over that and looked at the very bottom.
