Dear PR People Still Using this List: Email me regarding a more relevant list in 2016. ;)
Toronto has a lot of bloggers that cover a wide array of topics. A lot of them get a ton of traffic, but were they popular in Canada? The reality is, many blogs get lots of traffic from places outside of Canada. Which poses a problem for any business looking to work with a blogger. Canadian companies want to deal with Canadian audiences. Brands want Toronto’s Top Bloggers, not New Dehli’s top bloggers. This list isn’t perfect, and while it will give you a good idea on the bloggers with the most reach, it does not guarantee the same kind of traffic to sponsored content.
Who Are Toronto’s Top Bloggers?
Most bloggers aren’t willing to be open about their traffic, so I used a website, regarded as a very accurate – Alexa. Over the last 14 days, I tracked the Country rank of 44 bloggers, though when I did my search I looked at over 300 Toronto based blogs! (If you’re on Tumblr, you’re sadly not counted.) I took the 14 ranks and averaged them for each blogger.
If I’ve missed anyone, please let me know and I’ll start tracking them and then add them to the list! Toronto’s Top Bloggers are the following, there are certainly others will smaller audiences or short term hits, but for all intents and purposes, these are the bloggers with the best traffic rankings.
It should be noted that while this was written back in 2011, Toronto’s top bloggers have changed significantly in that time, and while some familiar faces still grace the list from back then till now, there are naturally new folks on the list! If you are looking for more information on other bloggers, including contacts, social media accounts and more – get in touch, as I have been developing a large, detailed database of Canadian bloggers that may assist you in your campaigns. Not just Toronto’s Top Bloggers, but all over Canada.
