Wikio Rankings

Those nice people at Wikio have supplied Brew Wales with the latest monthly rankings for Wine and Beer Blogs for the UK and Ireland. Good to see that in top 20 more than half the blogs are beer related. When will the dead tree press give the same coverage to beer as they currently give to wine, as there is clearly a demand from readers for beer related news and reviews?

Wikio - Top Blogs - Wine and beer

Anyway a bit from Wikio on how the rankings are compiled:

The position of a blog in the Wikio ranking depends on the number and weight of the incoming links from other blogs. These links are dynamic, which means that they are backlinks or links found within articles.
Only links found in the RSS feed are included. Blogrolls are not taken into account, and the weight of any given link increases according to how recently it was published. We thus hope to provide a classification that is more representative of the current influence levels of the blogs therein.
Moreover, the weight of a link depends on the linking blog’s position in the Wikio ranking. With our algorithm, the weight of a link from a top blog is greater than that of a link from a blog that is less well ranked.
Our rankings are updated on a monthly basis and also include Top Blogs for several categories: Technology, Politics, etc. New categories will be added on a regular basis.
