What happened? Other blogs with higher UH went up the Top 50 list, and even though those already on the list gained in terms of UH, it still wasn't enough to keep up with the newer blogs. The following are the seventeen blogs that were on the PTB Top 50 from June 2006 to June 2007:
Basang Panaginip and Kiven both entered the Top 50 in July 2006 on the strength of one post, and managed to stay on the list by giving their readers more of the same. The former, however, started pretty much at the top and has now worked its way to the middle, while the latter started in the middle and is now consistently in the Top 10. Oh, and the latter's owner has a degree in library and information science, which reflects the fact that many librarians aren't just working with books anymore =)
The last blog is Pinoy Cook, which was on the Top 50 list for 12 months from June 2006 to May 2007, but was voluntarily removed by its owner in June 2007. This highlights the reality that not all Pinoy blogs are on PTB. For instance, the most likely reason the blog by Michelle Malkin is not on the list is that she did not opt in, never mind that she probably doesn't consider herself Pinoy. Another reason other popular Pinoy blogs are not on the list is that Abe Olandres, PTB's owner, probably suspended them for one reason or another. It's also possible that their owners opted in but the blogs don't have enough readers to make it into the Top 50.
Finally, if you've been following my monthly PTB posts, I should tell you that there will be no more monthly posts. I will just finish this series on the 2006-2007 figures, and retire—voluntarily—from PTB.
