The Top Bloggers and Blog Sites in Singapore

The Top Bloggers and Blog Sites in Singapore

Just who are the top bloggers and blog sites in Singapore?

Some other site recently published a list using data from alexa.com for comparisons, but the results are somewhat strange. I personally dislike using Alexa due to its reliance on data coming through the Alexa Toolbar on Firefox.

Firefox. Who uses Firefox nowadays? And how many people love installing punky toolbars on their web browsers?

I prefer using similarweb.com. SimilarWeb don’t rely on any single source of data and should be way more robust and accurate.

Here’s a quick list of top bloggers in Singapore, according to SimilarWeb:

Update 3.30pm 22/4/2015 : After publishing the initial list, TheSmartLocal contacted us with their Google Analytic verified traffic on similarweb, which now puts them firmly at the top position.

Update 8.29am 23/4/2015: Danielfooddiary contacted us with their Google Analytic verified traffic on similarweb which now puts them firmly as the number 2 food blogger, pushing Seth Lui down. Also added another two food blogs, Johor Kaki and Rubbish Eat Rubbish Grow at number 16. Added .sg and .com traffic for Xiaxue. 

1. The Smart Local – 1.9m

Featuring a mix of useful, shareable content on the best deals and most interesting sites in Singapore, The Smart Local is a treasure trove to find things to do. No wonder they are the top.

2. Ladyironchef – 690k

Singaporeans love food. No surprise that the number 2 spot in Singapore is taken by a food site, packed full of listicles and guides on where to get the best eats.

3. Danielfooddiary – 651k

The second food blog from the top. What’s unique about this site is that Daniel do not do food tasting, paying for all his own meals. He also has a strict guideline on not flooding his site with too much advertorials and advocate health and fitness on top of just enjoying good food.

14. Asia361.com – 107k

Haven’t heard of this site before? That’s because it’s only two months old! Asia 361 is an affiliate site of Alvinology.com and covers lifestyle, travel and entertainment content around Asia. The team is working hard to push the traffic. Not bad for a relatively new site.

15. Working with Grace – 95k

    Hi, I just checked similarweb.com and realised that Danielfooddiary.com should have a traffic of 651k instead of the 310k stated. He should be ranked 3rd instead of number 6th.

    Hey Alvin,

    Someone linked me your post. Just FYI, Similar web’s statistics on blogspot URLs are inaccurate.

    This is because, based on location, the URL changes from blogspot.sg (if in singapore), to whatever country you are in. For example, if I typed in xiaxue.blogspot.sg when I’m holidaying in Taiwan, the URL automatically becomes xiaxue.blogspot.tw.

    Therefore, the statistics you are posting represents only Singaporean visitors, not counting international ones, or even Singaporeans who are overseas. This puts all blogger.com blogs at a huge disadvantage when it comes to your ranking, since everybody else’s is based on views in totality, local or overseas.

    If you wish to put in accurate statistics for blogspot users, maybe you can do a sum of the following variations of their blogspot URL: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-GKFJD_Yp5Ns/VKRqEDXTNMI/AAAAAAAAhyQ/s1vbhdba_4U/s1600/smrt7.jpg

    There might actually be more than this list suggests.

    🙂

      Thanks for the clarification. Wei Kiat, our tech guy at http://originallyus.sg wrote the post. I will ask him to check. There were some bloggers, including those on blogspot who linked their Google Analytics to give better verified statistics.

      Hi Wendy,

      Many thanks for your comments.

      What you have pointed out is a valid concern, however –

      Blogspot uses a header 302 redirect, not just any javascript redirect and automatically insert an canonical tag to point to the base URL, so crawlers, search engines, etc all should (by right, lah) treat variations of the url (.tw, .sg, etc) as one website entity.

      Of course, this brings more complexity to the data, that’s why external sites can never tell the traffic 100%.

      We have updated your stats as a sum of both .com and .sg, but this in itself will introduce double counting.

    Awesome collection of premium wordpress responsive themes. I often suggest someone to not spent money on making changes after implementing free themes. But better thing is that purchase a premium theme and take benefits of well tested and nicely coded features. At the end when we compare free theme+changes v/s premium theme then both will have the same amount of money spent.
