Business Blog Rankings From Wikio – Sneak Peek!

Wikio newsOn the 5th of every month, publishes its updated ranking of blogs, in various categories, including business blogs.  This month they gave us a sneak peek at the new rankings for the Business Blog category.

For blog rankings, Wikio takes into account the number of tweets and the weight and number of other sites linking to the blogs,  among other things.  As a result, Wikio generates an up-to-date blog ranking and the Wikio Blog Ranking makes it a place to find blogs to scope out.

Thanks to you, dear readers, we were delighted to see that Small Business Trends experienced a nice leap forward in the Wikio Rankings for business blogs and now stands in the top 15 business blogs. It is an honor to be in the company of sites like GigaOm, Techdirt, Freakonomics, BusinessInsider War Room and others.

Ranking from Wikio

One reason we like to share listings is that it’s a good place to discover other quality blogs, or remind yourself about ones you already know of.  So please check out the entire Blog Ranking section at Wikio.

While you’re at it, you might also want to explore the rest of Wikio.  From the name it sounds like it might have started out life as a wiki site — but it’s not really a wiki site.  And it’s more than just a blog ranking service.

The main focus of the site is a news search engine that aggregates news articles and original interesting blog posts. In other words, Wikio is a place to find the latest news.  Wikio gets its information from various sources such as news pages, blogs, consumer websites, merchant pages and Wikio members.  So you’ll find more varied news sources at than you might find in something like Google News, which tends to focus on information culled from the major media outlets and press release services.
