Latest Wikio Rankings Exclusively Announced

On about the third time of trying to arrange it, the very nice Wikio Blog Rating people and me have finally managed to sort out me hosting the latest blog rankings for the Wine and Beer category.

So I can reveal that the table for October is as follows:

Pete Brown's Blog (=)
Brew Dog Blog ()
Pencil & Spoon (-1)
Tandleman's Beer Blog (+2)
Spittoon (-2)
Stonch's Beer Blog (-2)
Brew Wales (-2)
Woolpack Dave's beer and stuff blog (+6)
The Beer Nut (-2)
The Pub Curmudgeon (+13)
Bibendum Wine (-3)
The Bitten Bullet (+12)
Boak and Bailey's Beer Blog (+5)
Jamie goode's wine blog (-5)
The Wine Conversation (-5)
Called to the bar (-3)
`It's just the beer talking` ? Jeff Pickthall's Blog (-2)
Pubology (-6)
Impy Malting (-8)
The Good Stuff (+6)

Ranking by Wikio

Naturally I am pleased that I have crept up two places to fourth, so I'll need to change my badge as soon as it is available on line.  Thanks to everyone who reads my blog, links to it and comments on it.  I'm now breathing down the neck of the leaders, but this is a fickle game, so who knows next month?  Pete Brown still leads the field - well done Pete - and a surprise entry to me at least is Brew Dog, who have shot straight in at number two.Congratulations to all my fellow bloggers that have done well this month, particularly Woolpack Dave, the Bitten Bullet and Curmudgeon, who have shot up the rankings.

Given that beers blogs occupy the vast majority of the top 20, maybe Wikio should rename the category Beer and Wine?

I think the badges change automatically, actually.

Tandleman said...

Dunno. I only downloaded mine last time.

Congrats on finally deposing Biffo and his pile of self serving shite.

I am very angered by this. APRK set out from the beginning to provide cutting edge beer journalism, with tasteful nudes on Friday being the cherry on top. For what? To be ridiculed by the bastard Wikio and not even showing up in their top 20!! Looks like tasteful nudes and outdated beer literature(Pattinson) are finding common ground! That poor bastard didn't rank either!! Haaaahaa!!

It's ok Herr'man. I've gotten use to your stoic and apathetic delivery towards the arts. I've shifted my rage to whom I see as being the real problem. Beer Video Reviewers. Avery gets a pass because he's actually unique in what he does. The rest can go fucking hang.

Congratulations on making the grade, you burly, Scotch bastard.
Take total, blessed care, from the West Coast!

"stoic and apathetic delivery towards the arts"

That's one way of looking at it! TTABCY.

Barry M said...

Bloody hell, I'm shocked to be in the top 20 even! :D

Professor Pie-Tin said...

Congratulations on your two-place rise and more power to your elbow, so to speak.
You see - I do read you I

I can't work out how this beauty parade is judged, but congratulations Tandleman.

Knut Albert said...

How do you qualify for this? I'd like to be somewhere in the top 50 as well. If Irish expats can be in, so should a Norwegioan anglophile!

Tandleman said...

Just send them your details Knut.

ooh - sneaked in there!
