Aaaaaat ten it's Called to the bar. Down two places in ninth position is Woolpack Dave and his beer & stuff. The Bitten Bullet moves up two to eighth place and Tandleman sits in seventh. A poor month for The Pub Curmudgeon dropping two places to pick up sixth. Boak and Bailey are huge movers, climbing a massive eight places to take fifth. The Brew Dog boys are down one in fourth as we hit the top three .... Beer Nut does well to steal third and it's as you were with Pencil & Spoon in second and Pete Brown on top.

Woo!

And, at last, a more sensible ranking for Boak & Bailey.

Not that these things really matter, of course. At least not to you, the little people in positions four and down...

Interesting that Woolpack Dave starts blogging again but manages to drop two places. Makes me wonder how out of date the data used to generate the list is.

Congratulations on going top 3. Your opinion is now relevant.

I always think that when I'm drinking.

congrats The beer nut and boak and bailey.

i noticed the brewdog blog has fallen a place too...interesting stuff.

Tandleman said...

Well my position keeps slipping. May was my highest month for six months or so in terms of number - and I thought - quality of posts, but down I go. Oddly enough the May total of visits to my site was one of my highest ever.

I have noted my serious doubts about these rankings before and while it would be sensible to ignore them, it is insidiously difficult to do so and the perplxing element of trying to understand them is frustrating.

I'm hurting here!

Hi all,

The rankings are based on backlinks and have nothing to do with traffic - unless of course the two have a relation to one another but that's another discussion.

There are several features in place to make them as fair as possible. Backlinks in the body of an article are counted and the more recent the better. If it's from a site that links to you on a regular basis it is worth a little less, if it's from a site that is linking to a load of other sites in the same blog post it is worth a bit less as well.

You can check out all your links on our Wikio Labs service.

Hope that's helpful and congrats to those in the Top 20 there.

Regards

I asked to be removed; instead, my ranking goes up. Classy.
