An Alternative to BlogStreet India

A recent issue of BusinessWorld (dated 21st Nov) published a list of the Top 10 Indian blogs. They had sourced the information from BlogStreet India. I’m not quite convinced with the methodology used by BlogStreet India. Non-existent blogs and unrelated blogs figure in the BlogStreet India Top 100. One such example is Jivha’s blog. International Blogs like Boing Boing, InstaPundit, Kottke and Joel on Software also figure in the BlogStreet India Top 100. If they don’t fine tune these glitches, we might seed the emergence of a competing service.


  • You and I know more, right?

  • All the best for your proposed new venture of rating Indiblogs.. When are you planning to start?? :-) :-)

  • Yes, Blogstreet India is seldom updated. They simply stack new blogs at the bottom. It's time we had an indigenous solution. Maybe Sunsuna can come up with something?

  • Blogstreet India's methodology is not good. They rate a blog based on the number of links from other bloggers. Even if a blogger stops blogging, those who blog rolled him are not gonna remove him/her from their list.

  • I too was wondering abt the credibility of blogstreet. I couldnt quite figure out what their 'neighorhood' funda is. Some linking blogs are listed, while many aren't. And yes, its crazy to see two year dead blogs in there.

  • @Thennavan,

    Why are you pulling my leg?

    IndianBloggers.com seems to be doing something in this direction

    I have no clue how to add more people to the neighbourhood. I guess it is some algorithm run by BlogStreet itself

    You have captured the defects of BlogStreet India

    I'm also equally clueless
