Great list !!

What was the criteria of Ranking ? I beleive its number of RSS readers . Correct !! , or are you seeing number of daily visitors ?

I write on Personal Finance and I read lots of above blogs 🙂


Good List…I do follow Ajay Shah, Deepak Shenoy and Rajesh Soni’s blog on a regular basis. Looking forward to read other blogs listed here in Top 15.

Great List, on http://www.marketcolorz.com, we have a good number of users, this list can be very useful for all the users to share news and Analysis.

what a shame…

you are putting Number 7, number 12, and number 14 among rest of the esteemed folks.

these three would not even qualify for top 50. (and it has been included in top 15).

who nominated or recommended them? friends?

hindustan yahin pe mar kha jata hai…

for others it is deservedly so.

I think Indian-share-tips.com should have had found a place in your list. Regards

Good job done on listing the top business blogs. Don’t go by statements of people like money penny who do not understand what good blogs are about. I think each and every blog listed rightly deserved to be in the list.

Would request you to please write similar post on the top 15 tech blogs in India.

@ Vishwas – may be you were one of their friends who recommended it. chor ki daddi mai tinka.

may be you should ask yourself what a good blog means:
number 7 – what is unique about it, stock tips, publishing widely available news again again ? you putting his crapy stuff with esteem folks like IIM professor (who writes original thoughts – not picked from somewhere else), and Prof Titus (again original writing).

at same goes with number 12 and 14. what is unique or significant about theri blog. same news and articles you will find spread on blogs or newpapers

if they are very good, go check their PRs or tell me how many time s their work is being referenced ?

go check your understanding of blog qualities and then come here to comment.

@money penny don’t overreact my friend. Number 7, 12 and 14 are as good my friends as you are…May be you are one of the bloggers who didn’t find his/her name in the list and trying to vent your frustation…better luck next time..please share your blog name and I will visit and see if you even fit enough to post a comment here…first of all you should have courage to comment with your real name instead of bogus names…lol…never mind ….and don’t take it by heart

@Money Penny

I would really like to knw about your blog and read it . You mentioned about 3 blogs which are “junk” as per your standards . I dont know about other 2 , but Number 14 is one of my favorites and the person is fantastic . He has clear understand of things and he shares his knowledge and views with everyone . And his posts and method is unique , you wont find it anywhere , Can you point me to some other blog which has anything similar to number 14 🙂

And dont worry dear , these people are not getting some awards from someone that you are feeling so jealous . Just try to see more positive in things … It will help you .

Best of luck , dont forget to mention your real name and blog (if you have) .

Interesting argument going here..so thought of adding my bit of spice : ) I am not sure of the blogs of 12 and timamo (14) but I do read others like Investment Guru (7), Rohit (5) and deepak(11). If I remember correctly, all these blogs have also featured in economic times as best blogs some time back (year or so). All these have huge readership which speaks for itself. nothing more to add…!!

@vishwas: I still do not think you understand. Why the heck are you taking my comments personal. did i say any of 7, 12, 14 are personally bad? did i comment on their personal characteristics?

I commented on technical aspects (originality, PR, content) and you don’t seem to understand the argument.

And you are going on personal attack. what a dumbo you are !!! That’s why I said, you do not understand how to argue a case…….

you are asking me to give real name, like you did “vishwas” and i believe there is only one “vishwas” in Inida….. vishwas bhai pahela vishwas karna seekho!!

@manish, I like your response and discussion on technical aspects. But in the end you also become personal (jealous.. come on my freind). And yes, i also understand listed folks are not getting anything. just a recognition…..

Unfortunately, you guys are not worth to discuss. I asked you specific questions (about content quality, orginiatliy), compare among others…. you telling me 7, 12, 14 are at par with esteem prof of IIMs…… have some sense my friends… compare on similar categories, not on freindship or not on becuae you read someones blog…. remove that bias and then evaluate…

@Geetika: my concern is only with inclusion of 7, 12, 14 on this list. Others are excellent one and very well deserved.

7, 12, 14 are not worth in this list. they may be ok and average like hunderds/thousands other blogs……………

@Money Wise

I also like your response 🙂 . But I dont understand with whom I got jealous , give me the news please .

I dont think the people i mentioned are at par with some IIM pro … Everyone has a differnet class and style , i was talking about that .

Regarding PR , i checked the PR for each of 7 , 12 and 14 , it was 3 , 1 and 3 . Not sure if that is repectable or not ?

My Blog itself has PR of 3 . Not sure it it deservers or not !! .

Regarding Content quality and comparision with others ,I think there should be some common rules and criteria’s for comparision , otherwise each one will have there own method and way of saying some thing is junk or great!! . Unless we have a common ground , Everyone is correct .

Personally I like 14 , 2 , 5 , 11 than anyone else … that my criteria and based on my liking . What about you ?

My sincere congratulations to all of the 15 folks listed here by the author of this post. Each of 15 blogs are good reads and have their own focus, their own perspective, and probably stand out in their domain. I think overall a good choice and good list.

As every coin as two sides, this post could have been presented in much better way. If the blog were personal views or individual perspective, I would have had no comments. Individuals are free to express their thoughts (that’s what the blogs are for).

However, this blog comes out (or seems like) a forum and not a personal blog. Therefore, my viewpoint is, “must read”, may be little too strong. Probably based on categorization or classification could have helped. OR at a minimum, the post could have been strengthened by listing the criteria used.

To Money Penny: You could have presented your case better, and in proper context. Your response seems distasteful (putting it mildly), in absence of any credible authority or background. You do not seem to have any blogging background and also commenting using pseudonym. Therefore, best is to ignore your comments. You need to bring some constructive argument to the table if you want folks to respond. I could have argued each of your points. I am not going to do that.

To Manish: PR as standalone is not enough. My viewpoint is steadily at PR3 for long is bad. But a site achieving PR3 in less than a 9 to 10months is good. Achieving PR3 is possible. PR3 is undergraduate of google’s ranking system. you know what I mean.

Great Job!

Good to see my competition listed out here. More than PR, Theme/Layout, RSS subscriber, etc I believe that a blog should be judged by the quality of posts and relevance to the topic.

Keep up the good work.

Nice list.
I have a trak on almost 10 blogs from the list.
My best blog is trak.in.

Dr. Debashish Sengupta

I personally follow Prof. Ray Titus’s Blog. I think he has a fantastic way of presenting his ideas which makes a lot of sense. His psychological analysis and his ability to link something very abstract yet profound to somethinh which is real-world type is fabulous.
