Please Define "Top" Without Blinking

The number of views do not define a great blog. Most of the time, those figures came from click-bait and refurbished viral or trending content.

There's a site using ASEAN as part of its domain name (but is it any way involved with the association?) and is sharing news about "top" blog sites but are only basing the recognition based on the views or site traffic.

Mocha gets a lot of views on her page but it doesn't mean she is among the "top" bloggers.

Duterte had 16 million votes, but he is definitely not a "top" personality.

Miriam Defensor-Santiago was "tough" but she was totally not among the "top" senators on my list because of her intermittent behavior.

Satire and fake news sites get more views, comments, shares and likes compared to the more credible sites. The trolls gobble up everything and spreads them like an infectious disease.

Go figure why!

If we wanted to get more views, we could have exerted effort to do the same strategies. But why follow the mob, when we are already doing well just with our little numbers alone.

There are smarter people out there who do their homework and has a better definition of "top"

There are just so many who follow the same old formula just to get the much sought after views even if it means dumbing the masses with their junk content.

I'm not saying all of the blogs on the list are not worthy, but there are better blogs that deserve a higher ranking (including those already on the said list) not because of their views but because of their content.

I used to write for an online publication, and all their concern is to increase their numbers however and whatever strategies to employ just to get them.

Ang akala ko noon everyone is just busy promoting themselves, but when I got into media, that includes blogging, I found out that many are also busy destroying others, especially their competitors. Nakakahiya na yun pang top at senior ang pasimuno sa siraan. They will do everything to maintain their standing even if it means fabricating or exaggerating issues against others.

Dirty deeds never go unpunished. Karma is real!

We also know that the more significant stuff are boring compared to the showbiz or controversial issues. Still, we believe our readers deserve better content than just the hyped "entertainment" that's too crappy to be included among the top blogs in the country.

About "" is the fastest growing and most awarded blog and social media community that has transcended beyond online media. It has successfully collaborated with all forms of media namely print, radio and television making it the most diverse multimedia organization. The numerous collaborations with hundreds of brands and organizations as online media partner and brand ambassador makes a truly successful advocate of everything about the Philippines, and even more since its support extends further to even international organizations including startups and SMEs that have made our country their second home.
