The true measure of a blog is the quality of its content, but the computers at Google have their own popularity measurement called PageRank. It’s not the only factor that determines how high your blog or website appears on web searches, but when yours increases it’s something to celebrate.
I’ve checked up the PageRank of some of the more popular D&D sites and blogs out there. This blog‘s PageRank is a respectable 4/10, where ten is the highest. You can check PageRank using the Google Toolbar.
Also at four are Chatty DM, Dungeon Mastering, Gnome Stew, Jeff’s Gameblog, Kobold Quarterly and Stupid Ranger. By internet terms, these are all fairly established sites.
At five are the long-time Roleplaying Tips and the 9rules network member Treasure Tables. At the lofty heights of 6 are community ENWorld and the Wizards of the Coast official D&D website.
PageRank is slow to index, so a few newer blogs have received no rating yet despite their popularity. This includes Critical Hits, Mike Mearls’ Keep on the Gaming Lands and RPG Bloggers.
All of the above sites come highly recommended. If you run a roleplaying games site or blog, how does yours fare?
