The top sites that made this list are ranked according to Alexa (33.3%), Domain Authority (33.3%), Page Authority (33.3%) indicators. The list doesn’t involve our personal opinion in any way.

The ranking is updated once every year with new blogs and up-to-dated scores. The data was collected in December 2020 for the current list.

SCORING SYSTEM

In order to evaluate every blog in an objective way we use indicators that measure the web traffic and the authority of the site on the internet.

The total score that every blog receive is based on 3 key indicators: Alexa Score, Page Authority and Domain Authority. For full details on what these indicators mean and how to improve them, we recommend you to read this page on NomadicSamuel.com that explains everything in an easy way to understand.

All the blogs get ranked on these 3 categories and they receive a score (points) according to their rank on each category. The sum of those 3 scores is the blog’s total score.
