Pinoy Top Blogs

This page will serve as an ad-hoc blog for the Pinoy Top Blogs Project .

What do we hope to accomplish with all these?

Well this is a two-pronged project and I hope most of the pinoy bloggers would agree with me on these points.

For Individual Bloggers:

  • Provide an independent public metric system to compare blog traffic among fellow pinoy bloggers.
  • Enable a feedback system independent of the individual blogs.
  • Promotion and additional exposure.
  • Independently verified bragging rights. :D

For the Blogging Community:

  • We can show everyone that the pinoy blogging community has the numbers and traffic.
  • Enable us to collect verifiable metrics to profile the average pinoy blogger.
  • Provides an avenue for commercial exposure and potential local revenue for bloggers. (under study)

What you need to do to be included and tracked by the system?

You need to register first, then add your sites. You can have as many as 10 blogs as entries to the system. Generate the HTML code to paste in your blog. Remember, that only pages that have the code will be tracked so it is possible that your own stats will differ with our published stats.

On the technical side, here are some explanations about the rankings.

  • Rankings are based on unique hits or visitors. This is tracked by the system using the IP and the cookie. The same goes for voting or ranking a blog.
  • Rankings are refreshed back to zero on midnight at the end of each month. This will allow potentially popular blogs that have only been included later have the chance to get on top of the list. Thus, the time you joined the system will not be a factor in your rating.
  • Rankings will monitor all blogs but will only display the rankings of the Top 100.
  • Ranking cycle at the moment is set monthly. Once the number grows, we can reduce it down to a weekly reset.
  • All blogs are allowed a banner of 234 x 30 pixels to be displayed along with the listing. Maximum file size is 30 KB.

What do these stats mean?

Votes – number of votes made by the public by clicking the PinoyTopBlogs button from your blog. This is refreshed monthly.
Total Votes – total number of votes made by the public by clicking the PinoyTopBlogs button from your blog.

Unique Hits Today – number of unique visitors on your blog for the month cycle.
Hits Today – number of (non-unique) visits on your blog for the month cycle.
Total Hits – total number of (non-unique) visits on your blog for the month cycle.
Total Unique Hits – total number of unique visitors on your blog since start of tracking.

Out – referrals from PinoyTopBlogs to your blog. Refreshed monthly.
Total Out – total referrals from PinoyTopBlogs to your blog.

Rating – blog rating made by the public on your blog.

    This is for all suspended blogs in PinoyTopBlogs: What IS valid traffic?

  7. Avatar for talksmart talksmart says:

    Hi. Just wondering why traffic exchange is not allowed here. Isn’t it a dream of every blogger to gain traffic to the site, at least on its first weeks of launching? I think this has to be resolved because lots of members are in fact into traffic exchange.

    My plan is to stop this traffic exchange (you know how troublesome it is to surf sites to gain credits) once i gain regular audience from other bloggers.

    To remove your site, just delete the HTML codes from your blog and the system will automatically detect it and delist you on the next round.

  22. Avatar for snow snow says:

    how do i remove my site from the list?

  23. Avatar for Abe Olandres Abe Olandres says:

    This is just a temp formula. I realized that for low-traffic sites, unique hits are a better gauge but for hi-traffic sites (like the Top 10), total page hits are a better measure of site stickiness and repeat-readership.

    I am still undecided as to what and how the rankings should finally be measured with though i have been always leaning towards unique hits.

  24. Avatar for vonjobi vonjobi says:

    i just noticed that ranking is being done on the basis of “hits today” instead of “unique hits.” was this always the case? wouldn’t “unique hits” be a better gauge of number of visitors?

  25. Avatar for Abe Olandres Abe Olandres says:

    Bugs have been fixed from the latest upgrade I did last night. Rankings will show for the Top100 now.

    Please leave a comment if you experience any more problems.

  26. Avatar for anonymous anonymous says:

    Thanks for returning the rank on the button, but they’re only up to 50 now, not the old 100. Will that be the case now, only the top 50 will have the rank on their buttons?

    Some bug in the system. Still finding a way to get it back.

  31. Avatar for anonymous anonymous says:

    What happened to the rank that used to appear on the button of our blogs? Used to be if you were in the top 100, the rank would be there. That was the primary reason I joined, I liked the idea of having the rank appear on our blos… but now it’s gone… could you put it back please!

  32. Avatar for Abe Olandres Abe Olandres says:

    @ jp

    You can login to the UserCP and you will find your Blog rank from there. Blog Traffic is really unpredictable. ;)

    @ perryv

    I will send email to everyone once we started tracking full blast. For now, a few random 5 minute runs is all I can do.

    @ michaeljosh

    We’ve temporarily disable blog tracking so the stats don’t show up. We do random 5 minute runs each day though so you might see them in a blip. :D

    @ vonjobi

    I checked your button image rank and it’s there. :)

  33. Avatar for jp jp says:

    I was sifting through the whole list. A month ago, I was in the mid-100s. Now, I couldn’t even find myself anywhere. Does that mean that traffic in my site is fluctuating like a person on a crash diet? :D

  34. Avatar for perryv perryv says:

    Would you announce to all of us via e-mail when the Pinoy Top Blogs is officially up?

  35. Avatar for michaeljosh michaeljosh says:

    Just wondering if you already resumed tracking and if you changed the way you do things this month. I’ve noticed that the stats don’t come up anymore next to the rankings.

  36. Avatar for vonjobi vonjobi says:

    good thinking! just wondering why no number appears in the logo on my blog? i thought that maybe it had fallen out of the top 100, but it turns out that’s not the case…

  37. Avatar for Abe Olandres Abe Olandres says:

    Hi Von Jobi.

    A veyr good question. The rankings were reset yesterday since it was the end of the month. I had to run the system for about 5 minutes at a time just to get a snapshot of the traffic.

    That’s the best way I could do to keep the rankings in almost the same order as it was last month.

  38. Avatar for vonjobi vonjobi says:

    if you’re not tracking now, why is it that the rankings are changing?

    anyway, keep up the good work! =)

  39. Avatar for Abe Olandres Abe Olandres says:

    I’ve temporarily suspended blog tracking while waiting for the final release of the top sites ranking script. CPU load was too heavy to effectively track all blogs.

    Blog registration is still open. Notice will be sent once we’ve upgraded and re-started tracking. Thanks!

    Hi, i have 3 blogs registered here. While one of them has risen astronomically since it was first registered, the last two haven’t moved at all despite the many hits the sites get (using my own site meter). I think i messed up with the codes because I have a weird feeling I may have used the same code for both. How can i possibly DELETE the two sites from the ranking so I can register them again?

    Thanks for the help!

    Hello, I’d just like to ask…

    … I’ve just registered and got the Pinoy Top Blog code to paste in my template. However, the picture just keeps showing up as a blank square x. What gives?

    We’re setting up our own little project and list as well for Cagayan de Oro blogging community. It’s at http://cdobloggers.caizine.com – More or less one and the same goal but on a smaller scale. This post is the basis of our “About” section.

    No Big deal really but I thought I’d let you know.

    @ KnOizKi

    Login to userCP, go to Manage Sites, click on delete button beside your blog list.

    @ E.J.

    It’s a factor inherent to the system. We’ll just assume that the net total effect of such factor is levelled down for each blog on the list.

    @ roni bats

    We’ll install the latest version of the script in two weeks.

    @ tania

    It’s a paging bug. Should be fixed in the next release.

    Thank you for this service but I need my site be de-linked. How would I do that?

    Thank you.

    Dude… Pinoy should Blog! Tnx for your site!

  51. Avatar for E.J. E.J. says:


    Potential glitch/loop-hole(?) : Dialup users (whose IPs change all the time & who have expired cookies) visiting their own website(s) have more chances to self-generate a higher ranking than broadband users (static IP). The same goes for authors who use different workstations to publish their blogs (ie. at public terminals).

    A couple of sites listed aren’t really “blogs”. Like PinoyBlog is good, but it’s a site made up of other blogs so does it count? Of course it gets tons of hits. Maybe rankings should be categorized then?

    Then there’s visiting other sites listed means giving them hits. So visit only those with a much lower ranking than your site?

    Maybe I am thinking too much. :) You have a potentially good thing going here. I hope it keeps improving.

    Hi Abe,

    There seems to be a problem. The second page of the bloglist starts at “1” again. Also, my PTB image on my site says “0”. What does this mean?

  55. Avatar for roni_bats roni_bats says:


    The HTML code you require owners to place in their respective sites is not valid mark-up. Would you mind fixing this? Thanks.

    Interesting! I think we Pinoy bloggers will benefit greatly from this idea… I’m signing up! I’ll refer my other blogger friends to do this as well.

    Onward, Pinoy bloggers!
