top 20 Youth Ministry Blogs

This is our third year of maintaining the indexes and rankings. (See 2010 list) The first year we looked purely at stats stats. (A composite of publicly available stats, like Alexa and Technorati.) The second year, we added to the formula a weighted influence rank worth 33% of the final results. Our top 50 bloggers statistically were ranked on influence in an online poll. Starting this year and going forward we have invited the previous years Top 20 to act as the pollsters in the influence ranking. So, the 2010 Top 20 were the influence pollsters for 2011 and so on.


Without further introduction, here is our list of the Top 20 Youth Ministry Blogs of 2011.
