Global Venture Capital (VC) Blog Directory – Ranked By Monthly Uniques

Posted in Technology, Venture Capital by larrycheng on January 13, 2010

It’s exciting times these days after we launched Volition Capital on Monday (01/11/10).  Commensurate with that launch, we also launched the Ask Volition blog – which is a Q&A blog that is authored by various folks at Volition.  The first post on the blog is: Why did you choose the name Volition Capital? 

Despite all that’s going on, I decided to publish the 3rd version of the Global VC Blog Directory (v1: May 2009, v2: Sept 2009).  The past two versions have been based on Google Reader subscribers.  Some requests came in to do a ranking via monthly uniques to better show current readership – so this edition is ranked by monthly uniques according to Compete.  The specific number is the average monthly uniques in Q409 [(Oct+Nov+Dec)/3].  While Compete does have data for well trafficked subdomains (e.g. blogname.wordpress.com), approximately 50% of the lesser trafficked blogs on subdomains did not register unfortunately.  I also couldn’t isolate traffic statistics for blogs embedded into a broader site (e.g. www.firmname.com/blog).  Blogs without traffic stats are on a separate list below.  Apologies to those I couldn’t get data for.  Interestingly, lesser trafficked blogs with their own distinct domains did seem to get picked up more reliably.  Give me feedback on whether you prefer the ranking on subscribers or monthly uniques – I’m not fully committed to either yet.  Expect version 4 of this directory in April 2010 based on Q110 data.  As always, if I’m missing any new or existing VC/PE blogs, please leave it in the comment field.
