Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. (1 Tim. 6:17-18)

Money Crashers Top Personal Finance Blogs

A new personal finance blog listing

Just a few days ago, announced a new listing of personal finance blogs that they have put together. To see the list, click on the following link:

Money Crashers' Top Personal Finance Blogs


The Money Crashers' list is a compilation of 368 personal finance blogs. Basically, it's the ultimate ranked list of the best personal finance blogs. Money Crashers formulated a unique algorithm that factors in statistics such as:
  • FeedBurner subscribers
  • Twitter followers
  • Alexa rank
  • Compete rank
  • Technorati authority
  • Google PageRank
  • Yahoo number of inbound links
  • SEOmoz rank
  • SEMRush organic search value

Money Crashers' unique algorithm then calculates a weighted score based on all of the data. By accounting for all of these various factors, the list is a very accurate in ranking all of these top blogs.

Another great feature, which I believe is unique to this list only, is that you can look at all of the rankings by category, which include the following:
How does Rich Christian, Poor Christian rate?

The current listing for comes in at #291 in the total ranking of all 386 blogs that are listed. Although I would obviously love to see this blog listed higher, considering all of the factors, I consider this to be very encouraging.

If you rank only Christian personal finance blogs, Rich Christian comes in at #10 of 18 CPF blogs. Again, I would like to see this ranking a little higher, but overall I am extremely pleased with the results. The blog has room for growth.

In Conclusion

Money Crashers has really put together a great listing of finance blogs. They have used hard data to rank the various blogs. The one awesome feature I really like is that you can view the blogs by their various categories. All personal finance blogs are not created equal. Each one has its own unique voice and emphasis, and I enjoy following many of these blogs for this reason.

Way to go Money Crashers. Keep up the great work!
