the world's smartest travel social network
I'd like to get my travel blog listed and ranked to show potential advertisers.
Where I rank 55th!

Does anyone know of others?
Great to connect with you here. I'm keen to meet and help other travel bloggers - say hi @Getinthehotspot on Twitter if that sounds good:)

If you want to be taken seriously, you will not refer potential advertisers to these sites. They are subjective lists without any meaningful basis. Sure, it's nice to be on the list (and I am) but it's just a giant clique and you do yourself a disservice by pointing to them.
Here's what advertisers care about (some will place more reliance on one thing than the other, but I'll list them all for your consideration):
Any of these can be gamed, but they are widely recognized by the industry as substantial. Top 100 lists by private parties are not.
Hi Mary Jo,
Loved the feedback. it's interesting as I have all those things listed on my media kit apart from the last two: Compare rank and Quantcast statistics so I'll add those.
But the one thing one client hangs onto more than anything is the Invesp Rank. I guess for the non-techie it's easy to understand but I agree, there are drawbacks as not all sites are listed.
Great to meet you here, I checked out Travels with MJ:)
I agree and...
It's great to be listed on any of these sites, but it shouldn't be your only strategy (in my opinion), on getting ad buyers.
You could have a small site, with a small, active following - but very influential in that space e.g. You write about travel for families in southern china. A narrow topic like that probably wouldn't make a top blogging list, but you could be the only expert on that topic on the planet! That is attractive for a media rep.
I'd also think of ways to leverage your blog beyond selling ads to earn revenue. I have a few ads that I sell to cover hosting costs, but also operate an online store where I sell goods, do some (small) Social Media Consulting work on the side and am scheming some other side projects.
Are you going to the Travel Bloggers Show next week? We can chat more then.
Another one is... http://www.travelpod.com/travel-blog-sites
The lists have helped me - once you get listed that is:) Great to meet you here. I checked out The Travel Beat:)
I tried ti get into the site this morning but no success; must either very busy or down for repairs.
PS. I tried again and got in this time...thanks
Hi, I don't know about blog listings but I did see that you have a travel blog and that you love to read. If you would be interested in reading my novel Cruise Quarters - A Novel About Casinos and Cruise Ships I would appreciate it. It is the #1 Cruise Ship Novel on Amazon and usually the #1 or #2 casino novel. If you could please e-mail me at carabertoia@yahoo,com. I could send you a copy.
I can also link your blog to my blog The Best Travel Novels.
Thanks Cara B
