Top 25 Celebrity Blogs

By Daniel Scocco

It is time to cover another niche on our Top 25 series. Celebrity blogs are among the most popular on the Internet. People just love gossip. As a result, they tend to receive a lot of traffic, and to be very profitable.

I would guess that the lower blogs on our list earn at least $5,000 monthly, while the top ones should be over the $50,000 monthly figure.

Keep in mind that the Top 25 takes into consideration only objective factors. The maximum score is 40, and the details about our algorithm can be found below the list.

Google Pagerank (0 to 10): the actual Pagerank was used on the algorithm.

Alexa Rank (0 to 10): Ranges were determined based on the Alexa Rank (i.e., 150k and up, 150k-100k, 100k-75k, 75k-50k) and each range was assigned a number (1 to 10). To get an idea of Alexa Rank, now in 2016 celebrity trivia website Taddlr reportedly averages 1 million monthly visitors with an 80k Alexa Rank.

Bloglines Subscribers (0 to 10): Subscriber ranges were determined (i.e., 1-50, 50-100, 100-150, 150-200) and each range was assigned a number (1 to 10).

Technorati Authority (0 to 10): Ranges were determined based on Technorati’s Authority rank (i.e., 1-100, 100-200, 200-400,400-600) and each range was assigned a number (1 to 10).

    The list is quite different from expectation like digital inspiration ie labnol.org and pro blogger .
    Where these are in the listing position ?

  • Desmond – GradeMoney.com

    Nice list!

    Perez Hilton is always at the top

  • Daniel Scocco

    Suresh, I am not sure what you talking about.

    These are all celebrity blogs. Digital inspiration is a tech blog, while problogger is a “make money online” blog.

  • team ray

    celeb market blogs are tappped out

    perez hilton makes a killing with advertisement

  • Neill

    Yeah..Perez hilton maybe always not on top but no one knows when.

  • kaguvkov

    what do you mean not always on top?

  • Glen Allsopp

    There was also something similar recently in the finance niche: http://www.harringtonbrooks.co.uk/finances/top-21-finance-blogs/

  • Daniel Scocco

    @Glen Allsopp, looks like they copied my algorithm 🙂 .

  • AlexG

    why do you have technorati up there?

  • Jaan Kanellis

    Why not compare all of these blog through compete.com as well?

  • Daniel Scocco

    @Alex, because technorati is a measure of backlinks and link popularity.

    @Jaan, because Alexa is still the most reliable traffic metric out there. Compete behaves weirdly when you have non-us sites involved.

  • Jaan Kanellis

    Alexa is a reliable traffic measure? Hardly. Plenty of tools can create a false Alexa profile for any website.

  • Daniel Scocco

    @Jaan, still it is the best metric we have. Why do you think some advertising networks use it? They are putting money on the table, and using Alexa as a decision factor.

    I know it is not perfect, but it is what we got. After the change in the algorithm, most people recognized that the number got even closer to the real situation also.

  • Chris Jacobson

    It’s no surprise Perez is #1.. his site is a daily favourite of mine, along with TMZ.

  • Samuel

    Why is Valleywag on the list? That is not a celebrity blog – and even if it was classed as one, which it isn’t – Gawker should be above it…

  • Daniel Scocco

    @Samuel, Valleywag covers tech celebrities, so it goes on the list.

    As for Gawker being above, well, the ranking is based on objective factors, it is not our opinion.

  • Chris

    I don’t think people will ever get fed up with gossip and dirt. It’s what drives the media sales. I have heard people for years talk about the very same thing when it comes to the gossip you hear on TV and on the newsstands. But yet the TV show networks and magazine companies continue to thrive, and we all check them out once in, a while we are at home, or while standing in line at the local Wal-Mart. Why do we like it? I don’t know. Most of us lead average, normal lives, and maybe we are looking for a little excitement without the risk. We let others do it for us, that’s what celebrities are for. Haha. Thanks for the list and the insight into what can be used to make money on the internet. Celebrity sites!!

  • Tuni & G

    I agree maybe take a look at compete.com’s numbers and maybe try quantcast. Just a thought!

  • marina

    Perez Hilton is such a jerk — and he doesn’t have a problem with blatantly swiping other people’s materials while not giving them credit.

    Example: http://www.flickr.com/photos/andrewkendall/2235837052/

    Tacky, tacky, tacky!

  • designer

    the only time perez is a top…

  • Miguel Cangueiro

    I also visit perez, the truth is that we all love gossip, that’s the human nature

  • Biceps brachii (photos)

    Nice list. I am visiting some of those blogs.

    I need to work harder, so in few months one of my celeb’s blogs will be listed up there. 😉

  • StarLink

    Interesting. I’m surprised Perez Hilton is above TMZ. I figured TMZ was the king.

  • fui

    I like to suggest everyone a celebrity image gallery which is free, unique and really very good.
    Those who want to have a little bit of entertainment in between their work, can take a break and watch freeuniqueimages.com. Unique thing
    about this site is that…only full body decent images of more than 200 celebrities are there with full emphasis on great figure. There are
    RSS, forums, blogs & chat features also where you can connect with each others.

  • Nat

    I think the market is becoming saturated with these celebrity blogs but there will always be a demand.

    People love a bit of celeb gossip… I know I do!!! But it’s all about not taking it all too seriously. Focusing on our own lives so to speak!

    Very interesting list.

  • dee dee

    what about mediatakeout.com? that is the website that i visit faithfully. then again, it is the #1 visited black website in the world. we obviously don’t count.

  • lar

  • peoplemagazine lover

    Sorry to intervene. I wanted to ask, where can I find the top 500 list of celebrity blogs, if there is one. This 25 is ok, but can I find more sites? maybe eeven get the alexa and Technorati ranking too. Any ideas? (Thanks)

  • Hot Celebrity Wallpapers

  • Clive

    But Gawker has sub domain blogs in there e.g. ValleyWag and Defamer are just Gawker by another name and ‘look’ so why list them 3 times?

  • Psych Episodes

    wow these blogs are really great…. Now I’m thinking to have my own blog just like these hahaha.

  • Gossip Girl
