Brilliant to see Copyranter in the Top 10. He's a god, isn't he? An angry god.

An ↑ means a blog's traffic has gone up by 15% or more in the past month, and a ↓ means it's gone down 15%.

Top 10 UK Ad Blogs (world

2   (4)Adliterate621,484

8   (new)Serendipity Book1.4m
9   (10)TV's Worst Adverts1.5m
10   (8)Living Brands1.5m

New in at No.8 this month is the wonderful Serendipity Book by Lee McEwan. Well worth clicking on over.

UK means UK-based. Ad blog means ad blogs not marketing blogs, so that excludes Gapingvoid. Paul Colman doesn't class Life In The Middle as an ad blog and Russell Davies no longer blogs about advertising. Much. Also, I'm only counting English language blogs.

If I've missed anyone out, please tell me and I'll put them in next month.

Where would I be if I did? I can never work it out (not that I care, or anything).

With an Alexa ranking of 133,847, you would be No.1 in the UK and No.8 in the world.

I'm told it's an error in how Alexa measures blogs, typepad ones in particular.

Oh well - was nice while it lasted.

Yes, apparently Alexa is far from 100% accurate. But it's easy and i'm lazy.

I don't need to ask Alexa if my Dad reads it, and that's what matters.
