What are the Best Hyperlocal Blogs in the U.S.?
by Matt McGee on Oct 8, 2008 in Industry
That’s the question outside.in is trying to answer recently. They’ve been doing a series of posts on the company blog called “Department of Blogiology,” which takes one city at a time and features the best blogs and most active blogging neighborhoods in the city.
It’s really terrific material, and a great way to learn about some new local blogs in other parts of the country. Here are the cities they’ve covered so far:
outside.in even describes the methods used for ranking these hyperlocal blogs:
Our rankings track local buzz by analyzing a mix of variables including: total number of posts, location of posts, links from other sites in the community, and feedback from Outside.in members.
My hometown is way too small to ever get featured in a series like this, but I’m sure Seattle has more than enough local blogs to make the cut. My guess is that Seattle will get featured soon.
