Best innovation blogs 2020

Want to learn more about innovation

Easy to way to stay on the cutting edge of innovation is to start following some blogs. We wanted to save you some time by ranking the top innovation blogs. Instead of just basing the ranking in our opinion we wanted to be more systematic. Therefore we ranked the blogs according to their performance in the following 7 criteria

  • Organic keywords: the number of keywords the site of the blog ranks for in search (source: Ubersuggest)
  • Organic monthly traffic: the total estimated traffic the site of the blog gets considering its organic keywords (source: Ubersuggest)
  • Domain score: the overall strength of the site of the blog (source: Ubersuggest)
  • Backlinks: the number of incoming hyperlinks from other domains to the site of the blog (source: Ubersuggest)
  • Twitter authority: the retweet rate of users' last few hundred tweets and the recency of those tweets (source: Followerwonk)
  • Twitter followers: the number of followers the blog has in Twitter (source: Twitter)
  • Facebook authority: the number of Facebook shares and likes (source: SEO Review Tools)

Because it is more fun to have several winners we decided to name a winner for each of the above mentioned categories besides the overall winner. While collecting the data and browsing through the blogs we came up with two special categories too (this allowed us to name even more winners 😀!)

  • Engagement: how actively the blog author responds to comments
  • Fun: can innovation blog be fun? yes it can

If you want learn more about our methodology or have feedback about it, please feel free to contacts us.

But now on with the show: here are best innovation blogs 2020!!
