How to Find the Most Popular Blogs

by Contributor

There are millions of blogs on the Internet, covering every topic imaginable. How do you find the most popular blogs on any given subject? "Social bookmarking," or tagging by users, provides a means for ranking and clarifying blogs. Here are steps to find popular blogs.

Search for social bookmarking (tagging) sites. Enter any of the following terms in a search engine: del.icio.us, Digg or social bookmarking.

A "social bookmarking" search will turn up Web sites that specialize in rating other Web sites. The ratings are based on other users' "tags" on those sites, which help rate and classify them.

When you find a rating site you like, search on it for the type of blog you are looking for. For instance, if you want to find blogs on a particular film star, type in the name of the actor.

Tagging sites only work because of users like you who look at information on the Web and tag it for other users. So review the blogs you find and tag them if you like them.
