Top 50 Blogs from Thailand 2018

top-50-blogs-from-thailand-2018

Thailand is often referred to as a digital center of Southeast Asia, regrouping many local and foreign bloggers relating their activities online. The following Top 50 blogs from Thailand gathers the most popular blogs from thought-leaders based in Thailand, both in Thai for the local market and English for the international one.

Just like for broader business in Thailand,  the Thai digital users must primarily be engaged in Thai language to reach large audiences. Contrary to other countries of the region, it is therefore no surprise that many of the best blogs are published in Thai. However, Thailand is also the country of adoption for many foreign expats who engage in blogging and digital activities, so many of the most popular blogs are written in English.

Whatever the language, since Thailand is a very touristic country, the importance of travel blogs is more marked than in other countries of Southeast Asia. Though several local blogs do succeed very well, especially from Thai pretties leveraging massive social media communities, the travel theme in and out of Thailand is a popular one both for local and foreign bloggers.

List of the Top 50 blogs from Thailand

After carefully combing more than 130 blogs from various themes and industries with the method detailed below, here are the results of the most popular blogs from Thailand. They are primarily blogs from single authors, but sometimes do have multiple ones.

Whether in Thai or English, or both, they collect personal opinions and/or tips for a unique or multiple themes, with a niche focus or targeted to mass audiences. The obvious dichotomy is that blogs in Thai are almost entirely targeted to Thai people, while those in English aim at other markets and sometimes the local English-speaking community too.

Each blog’s main themes have been added to make the list more user-friendly and help you learn about blogs that correspond to your interests… or the product or service you might want these influencers to talk about.

Top bloggers from Thailand on Twitter

List of top blogs from Thailand on TwitterSo that is the complete top 50 blogs from Thailand. To help you stay informed on their activities, we created a Twitter list to regroup their Twitter profiles (when available) together with some other top bloggers from Thailand active on Twitter.

You can check what they are up to and follow the whole list to keep in touch with them all at once. Of course, don’t forget to follow @ASEANUP too! 🙂

Thailand’s top blogs selection criteria

Though the highest ranking blogs and websites in many “top” lists are often legitimate, when a single tool is used to rank these websites the middle and lower ranking ones are often not the most relevant, because of the inherent characteristics of the tool used. That’s why the previous list has been created by carefully selecting the 50 most influential blogs from Thailand through a combination of well-established tools for digital marketing.

Note that a few popular blogs from Thailand have been left out because of inappropriate contents.

Domain authority and estimated monthly traffic

First, a shortlist of 130 blogs with recent updates was created by screening 250 of the most prominent blogs in English and Thai through MOZ’s Domain Authority and SimilarWeb’s monthly estimated traffic as of February 2018.

Only blogs with high domain authority or estimated traffic were generally kept, but several blogs, especially in Thai, do not have a reliable Domain Authority or traffic estimation (probably due to limitation of language comprehension by their algorithms), so these results were mitigated with the total social media community.

Total social media community

The social media community on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter of each blog in the shortlist was recorded when they were above 1,000 followers, and Youtube when it was above 5,000 followers. These communities were added to create a “total social media community” for each blog and indicate the general popularity of the blog/blogger on social media.

This was important to rank blogs the middle and end of the list, as their estimated traffic score were often unavailable, even though they often gather large online communities of tens of thousands.

Final ranking 

Finally by combining SimilarWeb’s estimated monthly traffic (weighed 2) and the total social media community (weighed 1) for each blog, the shortlist was ordered from the most to least influential. The top 50 blogs obtained through these aggregated criteria were finally retained to ensure the most relevant references and measure blogs through their relative influence in one useful list.
