We, here at The Chrysalis Books, Reviews, and Everything Written (BREW) Project, are utterly committed to searching for the best creators and their content. Once we’ve found the excellent ones, spreading the word about our finds is what comes next on our to-do list.

Earlier this week, we’ve written about what makes blogs great. We’ve also given you a run-through of the best blogs so far based on Feedspot’s list.

Also in that post, we cited that one of the bases for determining the best blog listing is Detailed.com’s number of mentions data. Now, with this post, we’re going to expound on that.

What is Detailed.com’s Best Blog List’s Basis

The list started as an internal quest of Detailed.com’s founder to determine his own site’s ranking among other sites. That site no longer exists now, and the parameters he used then no longer apply now. (PageRank is no longer being used because Google has come up with a different algorithm. Alexa.com has also announced that it’s retiring the site in May 2022.) However, the premise still remains – that there are other means for determining a site’s rank other than the number of social media followers.

There are 2 main factors that Detailed.com’s best blog list takes into account – the results of its 8-bit crawler’s findings and the use of Twitter’s API in determining a brand’s number of mentions. Unrelated mentions are not included in the 7-day rolling period data that’s updated every 24 hours.

With the method, aged domains don’t have the sole monopoly in the lists. Meanwhile, newer sites can still rank high on the list if they keep on being relevant to their target audiences.

As a caterpillar goes out of its dark cocoon, grows its wings, and flies high up in the sky, I acknowledge my role in the entire process of the written word's metamorphosis through The Chrysalis BREW Project. I believe that beauty and goodness exist in everything and everyone - may we let that emerge and shine in each word we read, concoct, write, or share.
