Bloglines Launches Top 1000

By Daniel Scocco

Bloglines has launched the Top 1000 list, which ranks the most popular feeds within their system. The interesting thing is that, apart from the ranking itself, it also includes a direct link to the RSS feed and some information about the trends for each feed.

It reports, for instance, if the feed is moving up or down, how many positions it gained or lost, and what feeds are the top movers.

The ranking system is not completely clear. I manually checked the latest positions and the numbers were not perfectly ordered. It looks like you would need around 600 RSS subscribers to enter into the list.

Daily Blog Tips is in position 860 and has a very positive trend. Hooray!

    Sadly, I’ve got loads of subscribers but only 430 from Bloglines… one of these days I’ll make it into one of these lists…

    I don’t know if this Bloglines list will be the same, but I’ve noticed a disturbing trend with these types of lists. Whoever is displayed on the “top” list will get a surge of subscribers because of it, and those not on the list will continue to grow (or not) as normal. Kind of a rish-get-richer sort of thing, making me think that there will be little fluctuation in the actual list.

    Congratulations on making the top 1000 (no surprise considering a quality blog), and 860 is still an amazing achievement.

    My blog isn’t very new, and only has about 20 subscribers after 6 months, but has managed nearly 500,000 hits. (I think my reason is that I don’t have time to write full-blown posts, instead sharing cool thing I find across the web, which I absolutely love!)

    Anyway, good work, and keep up the awesome blog.

    @Egon, I don’t think this list will have a big impact for the top blogs mentioned.

    The ones that make the difference is the bundles that they offer to new subscribers.

    @Michael, thanks for the nice words.

    With Google taking a larger place in the feed reader world, maybe Bloglines is just telling everyone that they are still around by releasing a Top 1000 list.

    Amazing how quickly things have changed in the reader world over the past few years. Hardly hear anything anymore about Bloglines, Pluck, Feed Lounge, etc. It’s all been Google reader.

    Daniel, might be a good topic for a post to explore the different feed readers and their share of the market.

    How do you search that list? I don’t want to go down the list to look for my blogs.

  • Daniel

    Not sure if you can search for names Patrix.

    Just got to the page that has a somewhat similar count to your sites and Ctrl+F

  • Daniel

    The count is not linear though. Some blogs on the tenth page have 1,300 RSS subscriber via bloglines, which is by far more than what I have.

    Not sure how they are computing it.

    That’s no small feet Daniel. Congrats!

  • Joe

    That’s awesome Daniel! You definitely deserve it with all of the great tips that you give. There is one thing that I find that’s hard about bloglines. I find that it’s not always the first choice rss reader for a lot of people. On my sites, bloglines always has the least amount of subscribers. What do you suggest to fix that?

    Congrats again, and thanks for the news!

  • Daniel

    Joe, I wouldn’t worry about not having that many RSS subscribers in bloglines. As long as they are subscribing we should be happy :).

  • jakes

    ya,,i have the same opinion..those on the top of the list usually grow well with much readers and posts, while at bottom levels, people try hard to get enough comments from online users
