10 Great Finance Blogs Flying Under the Radar

Yesterday I posted my list of 40 Finance Blogs ranked by popularity. I compiled the list by running the 40 finance blogs I follow through Alexa and Technorati to determine their “popularity.”

I was surprised to discover which finance blogs were “popular” and “unpopular.” Many of the blogs I admire have Alexa’s over 2 million. While many of the blogs I find less-than-inspiring command extremely high readerships.

I decided to compile this list of diamonds-in-the-rough. All of the finance blogs listed below have an Alexa over 1,000,000. And I have no affiliation with any of them. There are some gems here, so check ’em out!

Bob Freedland does what every stock blog should do: thorough analysis of companies. Complete reports, week in and week out, since 2003. So many top-ranked Seeking Alpha contributors write pithy one paragraph blurbs about the iPhone, and so few take the time to do the kind of serious fundamental analysis Bob consistently churns out on new companies every single week. This is an impressive blog.

    Jon, thanks for the support.

    I don’t trust the Alexa rankings. My traffic has doubled since December and yet my Alexa ranking seems to keep falling.

  3. Jon says:

    Jim, good point. I have blogged about Alexa accuracy here. Alexa measures page views, which favors click-factories like MySpace. A blog has all its content displayed efficiently on one page, which equals only one page view. So I would imagine that most blogs underperform on Alexa.

    The alternative would be for me to use technorati as my yardstick for finance blogs. But I found that too many finance blogs aren’t even on technorati, whereas Alexa measures everyone (for better or for worse).
