Examining the Top 40 Blogs

Ads on Blogs has started a top 40 search results for the word “blog” as part of a study of the sites and search references that include the word “blog”.

You can see the full list there, but the top 10 are:

  • blog site
  • radio blog
  • sex blog
  • free blog
  • celebrity baby blog
  • sky blog
  • blog advertising
  • blog quiz
  • blog host
  • wrestling blog

Now, what conclusions can be drawn by this list is really vague. Top keywords and search results are a measure of how popular the combination of words are. Sex, free, celebrity, even advertising, are all fairly common words, as are radio, host and wrestling. Since “blog” is one of the hottest words around, it is highly likely that it will get used by those trying to grab search engines’ attentions.

I think the real test should be to see how many of these area legit and are there really more radio blogs and interest in radio blogs than in, say, business blogs.

Still, it’s information. What value do you think such a list offers?
