toptentopten.com is slowly working it's way up in the ranks of Top Ten websites. There are more than a few out there, but two far and away receive more traffic and viewership than the others, Listverse and TopTenz.
Listverse boasts "The List Universe serves over 4.5 million pages a month to more than 1.5 million readers. We are focused on lists that intrigue and educate, specializing in the bizarre or lesser-known trivia. Every day we present a new unique list in any one of our twenty-two categories, from art to travel." They have a lot of very random lists that are normally well written, eg Top 10 Failed McDonald’s Products, 10 Scandalous Facts About Historical Figures, or Top 10 Composers Who Died Unnatural or Odd Deaths. Their current rank on Alexa is 10,513. They have 965 lists.
TopTenz describes themselves "Welcome to TopTenz.net. We are a site featuring unique top 10 lists in a variety of categories, covering pop culture, movies, music, people and a host of other bizarre and strange top 10 lists." They like Lisverse also have a lot of unusual and creative lists like Top 10 Weirdest Political Parties, Top 10 Researchers who Experimented on Themselves, or Top 10 Botched Bank Robberies. Their current rank on Alexa is 41,419. They have 215 lists.
Now both of these sites are really blogs. Users can submit their list to the admin who decides whether or not to publish the list. TopTenz has featured writers as well. This is where we feel we have one of the biggest difference is that we allow any member to post a list at any time. And because of this feature of our site, although we are a much newer site, we already have over 6,000 lists! We do not discriminate, and the ranking of the lists themselves self select for the more popular or relevant lists. The other main feature that we have is the ability to vote on list items depending on your own individual opinion, the other sites do not.
So we aspire to have the type of readership that these other sites have and are working to improve the quality and functionality of our site, but we have a long way to go, our rank on Alexa is 225,776. Thank you to all who support us.
