danderma came up with this great initiative, ranking the top 100 blogs in kuwait almost on a monthly basis, following alexa ranking - while reading her march results, we wondered how the list would look like if it were segmented by language - we basically built on danderma's list and the findings were quite interesting.
- 20 of the top 50 blogs are purely in arabic
- 12 blogs are purely in english
- 18 blogs use both languages, depending on the post
this of course changes the rankings drastically - it places 248am as the most popular english blog in kuwait followed by danderma and bananaq8 becomes the most popular blog in the combo category followed by meenakon - q8ping remains number 1 in both arabic & all blogs categories followed by aboflan.
we believe ranking blogs should be segmented, just like it is done in other media channels, like newspapers - it gives a more comprehensive picture of the blogging universe.
