Top Travel Blogs for 2023

This list ranks over 1,400 of the world’s best travel blogs on the basis of algorithmic authority. It attempts to measure the authority of the website based on several popular SEO metrics.

As with all such lists, this is imperfect and only represents one way to look at the authority of a blog. Scroll down below the list to get a complete explanation of the metrics used, along with their strengths and weaknesses.

If you have a blog and would like it listed, please leave a comment with the URL of your travel blog.

If you don’t have a travel blog yet, read this guide for how to start a travel blog.

Rules For Inclusion on the List

  1. Your site must have travel as its main focus. If you primarily write about food, fashion, or something else, with a small travel section, it will not be listed.
  2. Your site must be hosted under its own domain. For example, Blogspot, Blogger, or sites can’t be listed.
  3. Sites must be owned by the content creator(s). Corporate own sites are not included.
  4. The site must primarily be a travel blog. If the majority of your content is user-generated, or some other travel-related non-blogging content, it will not be listed. Travel companies that have a section of their website with a blog are not eligible.
  5. The domain must be older than 1 year. I’ve been flooded with requests from brand new blogs. The turnover rate for these websites is incredibly high. Many of them never post anything or are completely offline within a year. For this reason, I’m only listing sites that have been around for at least one year going forward.

Overview of the Ranking Methodology

Figuring out the best travel blogs is an inherently flawed process. 20 people can look at it in 20 different ways. I do not claim that this list is the be-all and end-all when it comes to this subject.

This list attempts to be an objective look at website algorithmic authority. To do this, I take four publically available metrics which are all on a 100 point scale and take the average of the three to determine a site’s rank on the list. There is no subjectivity in the data or the results.

Why Authority? Other lists use traffic to rank sites. There is nothing wrong with that, but there are lots of ways to get traffic. Just publishing a lot of low-quality posts can build up overall traffic. Likewise, you could have an online forum that could inflate numbers, or you could just get a post that goes viral. Also, the only way to truly know traffic is to have voluntary participation with every single person on the list. Authority doesn’t tend to jump around a lot. Traffic can go up and down, but these metrics only have small fluctuations and take time to raise or lower.

What Are The Four Metrics? The four metrics that are used to rank the websites are:

  • Trust Flow by Majestic
  • Domain Authority by Moz
  • Domain Rating by AHREFS
  • Domain Score by SEMRush

Why These Four Metrics? To create a list like this, I needed metrics that were publically available and used a similar scale. I felt that these four metrics while having some overlap, were all different yet measured important aspects of website authority. Also, I am aware of the weaknesses of all the metrics, but they are weak in different ways, and I think they mostly cancel each other out when taken together.

Why Trust Flow? Trust Flow is a metric from It is probably the least well known of the four metrics I use, but it is also the most enlightening. It is a measure of the quality of links to a website. You will notice that the majority of websites only have a Trust Flow number in the teens or twenties, even though they have a Domain Authority much higher. This is because they don’t have many links beyond the blogosphere. A high Trust Flow number represents links from mainstream media outlets and other large websites, which is exactly the sort of authority which this list is trying to capture. (Note: I am using DOMAIN Trust Flow, not URL Trust Flow. They are different numbers.)

This video explains how Trust Flow works:

Why Domain Authority? Moz’s Domain Authority has become a staple metric for the industry, so using it made sense. It is on a 100 point scale like the other metrics. Sites that have been around longer, with more links tend to score higher. While it is possible to game it, you can only game it so far as it is on a logarithmic scale. It captures both link quantity and quality.

This video explains how Domain Authority works:

Why Domain Rating? The third metric is Domain Rating from AHREFS. Like the other metrics, they use their proprietary database of links and websites to calculate an overall profile for each domain based on the quantity and quality of backlinks.

Why Authority Score? The fourth metric is Authority Score from SEMrush. Unlike the other metrics, it actually takes into consideration the number of keywords a site ranks for and how much actual traffic it gets.

Why isn’t my site listed? Ask. Just leave a comment below and if it meets the rules I will add it.

Why is my site data out of date? If you have a new site, data can change dramatically over a few months. If you would like a manual review of your site, please mention it in the comments.

What are the weaknesses of this list? Each of the individual metrics has weaknesses that are well known. This list also only captures the algorithmic authority of the website and no other real-world authority. If you appear on TV, have a popular YouTube channel, podcast or Instagram account, that will not be reflected on this list.

Does the list have a bias? Yes. It tends to be biassed towards sites that have been around a while. I have no problem with this bias as time and experience are important parts of what constitutes authority. The longer you’ve been around, the more likely to get high-quality links and build a social media following. I have recently added domain age to the list. This is taken from the date the domain was first registered. For non dot com domains for which this information isn’t available, I took the first day it appeared on the Internet Wayback Machine at In the rare event, it is a brand new site which isn’t listed in the Internet Wayback Machine AND it isn’t a .com domain, I set 30-days before it was added to the list as the creation date.

What are the strengths of this list? It is hard to game all four of these metrics. The sites near the top of the list have been around for the better part of a decade. I don’t see how someone could jump into the top 10 after blogging for a year unless they were a celebrity when they started. The youngest sites near the top of the list have been around for at least 5-years.

Each one of these three metrics attempts to predict how a site will perform in search results. By using all three metrics, it serves as a double and triple check against any one metric. As all the metrics attempt to measure the same thing and are all using the same scale, I just take the average of the three, even though each metric has different median values.

How often will this list be updated? Periodically. A least once a quarter, but possibly more. All three of these companies have gotten better at updating their database and their metrics. That being said, you usually don’t see large swings in any of these numbers, so there is little need to constantly be updating.

What are the average values? The median values for the 4 metrics which are using in making up the list are below. Half of all sites will be above or below these values:

  • Majestic Trust Flow: 11
  • Moz Domain Authority: 34
  • AHREFS Domain Rating: 22
  • SemRush Authority Score: 29

If you have a value that is above or below these numbers, you are doing above or below average.

  1. Hey Gary,

    If you are still updating this post, I would love to be added to the list. My site is


  2. Hello! I’ve been working on my blog for a couple of years now and would love to be included in your list if possible? thank you, Gary!

  3. It looks like my blogs numbers have not been updated in some time. I know that DA and DR are significantly higher. Don’t know about Semrush. Do you ever update the list?

    • Updated. I only update when people request it as I have to do everything by hand. with over 1500 entries it is too much to update on a regular basis.

  4. Hi Gary! I’d love it if you could update my travel blog’s stats on your list – they’ve changed quite a bit. It’s Thanks so much!

  5. Hi Gary,

    You’ve amassed the best list of travel blogs anywhere! Thanks for compiling and sharing this list with the community. I’ve been following your travels for more than 10 years and appreciate the inspiration you’ve given all of us travelers out there.

    Would you add to your list?

    Thanks so much!

  6. Hi Gary, Great list! Please could you add my Australian Travel Blog

    Kind Regards,


  7. Hi Gary, thank you for creating this list. Obviously, you put a lot of time into maintaining this.
    I read through your comments for the last couple of years, and appreciate your protectiveness of travel bloggers through the pandemic. It has been tough for sure.

    My blog is My sole focus is on travel, and strive to present travel in a way that encourages others to travel. I would love to be included in this list!

  8. Hi Gary,

    Not sure when the last time the list was updated, but my numbers are way off for Dine Dream Discover.


  9. Gary, love that you’ve put this together. We’ve just hit the one year mark and would love to be added to the list.

    Thanks so much!

  10. Hi Gary,
    is there a similar list for travel companies’ blogs?
    We are a small boutique Italian tour company and we are interested in travel blogs where we can share guest posts “not commercial”.
    It will be guest posts where it is possible to give suggestions and information about our destinations.

    Thank you

  11. Hi, Is this list still being updated? I ask as many of the blogs are no longer active – Eg. Wandering Trader, The Expeditioner, Travel With Bender, Legal Nomads, Travels of Adam, Wanderlust and Lipstick have all either stopped blogging or no longer cover travel. Just curious. Thanks :)

    • Given that we are still in the middle of a pandemic, there are a whole lot of sites that haven’t been covering travel lately. That has more to do with travel than with blogging. All of those sites you listed are still online and they are still generating significant amounts of traffic.

      The biggest problem is that I have to check every single number by hand. I don’t have a way to batch update anything. The time it would take for me to update every single website would be weeks, with absolutely no benefit to doing so. No one pays me to do this and no one contributes.

      If anything, I’ll probably delete the list before I have to invest that much time in updating the list.

    • Travel With Bender is still active and I’m still blogging – there are posts from 2022 on the home page.
      As Gary said, we’re in the middle of a pandemic when travel is not so easy. And the travel industry has taken a big hit – bloggers included. I was “stuck” in a country with closed borders for the majority of it. But I’m looking forward to easier travel in the days ahead. Wishing you the best for 2022.

  12. How often will this list be updated? Periodically. A least once a quarter, but possibly more. All three of these companies have gotten better at updating their database and their metrics. That being said, you usually don’t see large swings in any of these numbers, so there is little need to constantly be updating. How do I start a travel blog in 2021?

  13. Hi Gary!

    It would be great if you could add my site – to the list. I blog about slow, solo and sustainable travel mostly through the Indian subcontinent.

    • Doesn’t qualify. It is a tour company with a blog attached. Have to primarily be a travel blog to be listed.

  37. Great job on creating this table of data about blogs! Was wondering if you could make the header fields visible?
    Based on your explanatory notes, I took a guess at labelling each column heading:

    Rank BLOG DA Flow DR Auth Domain Age
    1 61 72 76 69 69.5 11 Y, 9 M

    Did I guess right?

  38. Hi Gary,

    I’d love to submit our site,, for the next time you update this list.

    Thanks so much!

    Please consider for your list. We focus on Florida outdoor recreation and authentic Florida travel experiences. We’ve been dishing up original content for 10 years. Our annual readership is 1.2 million with 5 million page views (Google Analytics). Thanks for your consideration. — Bob Rountree, co-publisher

  40. Hi Gary,

    I started blogging again this summer after like 10 years from the last blog post on my previous travel blog.
    On “Leave! The Dream” I write about the last years of my life working and traveling as a kitesurf instructor.
    I tell some funny stories, give some travel tips, share some travel hacks and, on top of all, interview cool people I met, who successfully managed to live their dream day by day.

    I’m now in the long and uphill phase of promoting it… and I was wondering how much have I to kick it to make it to your list? XD

    Would also be glad if you could pay a visit and give some feedback!


  41. Great blog post! I recently started my own at to which I’m adding (as fast as I can!) all my restaurant, bar, and travel recommendations for France, NYC and beyond! Feel free to take a look — I hope you like it and let me know if you have any suggestions.

  42. Would love to be added to this list: I am a brazilian travel blogger living in Vienna, Austria.

  43. Thank you so much for adding I just had a quick question about how you determine the age of the blog. I started the blog in 2009 but it states my blog is only 6+ years old. It was just Downshifting before then (no PRO at the end). Will this affect my ranking?

  44. Hi Gary
    Would love to be added to your list! Don’t really follow my stats (bad I know) so have no idea where I will be!!

  45. I would like to go update old posts and improve their SEO. My ranking states that I have 21 on keyword authority. Would I be able to figure out which posts need better SEO by reviewing the source of this metric? If yes, what is the link?

  46. Hey, I run The Hangry Backpacker, a blog focused primarily on solo travel and food. I’d love for it to be considered!

  47. Hi,
    You have a great page for us that like to travel, I know a travel blogger that is great, he has great narrations and photos of the places he has visited. Here’s the page
    I hope you can look at it and add it.

  48. Hi Gary

    We are a new blog starting out, focused on travel experiences in Australia. We would love to be included.

    Thanks for putting together this directory, it’s been interesting having a look through.

    Natalie & Steve – Curious Campers

  49. Hi Gary,

    Jamie and Claire here from, we are exclusively a travel website. Jamie and I have been tour guides to the Mediterranean since the 1990’s – Turkey, Israel, Egypt and Europe. Now we help travelers to PLAN, STAY, DO, EAT & DRINK and GROW! We are working back in time and forward as we travel each month around the world. Please add us to your directory. We launched in June 2019 and have a three trajectory with our resources to be a premier travel planning site for anywhere in the world. AHREFS ranks us low as you would expect but we have followers in the 1000s – see our profile on the front page of the website.

  50. Hi Gary, fantastic resource. Can you please consider I am the owner and I wrote all the contents. Most of the contents are about traveling to Warsaw and Krakow. Thanks!

    PS: is not a tour company, I just get a small commission on the sales.

  51. Love this list! Thanks for doing the work for us so we can get the best & most informative information from the most innovative blogs out there! I run a site called Anxious & Abroad that specializes in giving advice, tips & recommendations to first-time or nervous travelers who are on the fence about travel.

    Ultimately, I want to give anyone who may be thinking about travel, but is too scared or intimidated, the resources and the pep talk to get them going, because I think travel is for everyone, and is life-changingly beneficial. I’d love to be featured on this directory and potentially collaborate if you like what you see! Thanks & keep up the good work!

  52. Hi Gary, I saw your FB post, and I can follow instructions!
    My blog is new, but I’d love to be included: Thanks for putting this together!

  53. Hi Gary! Thanks for putting all this together—I’ve been looking for a list like this :) My blog is and helps bakers find adventure. Pretty new setup but growing.

    Hope to see you at Travelcon New Orleans!

  54. Cool list! Lots of great websites listed here. I’d be honored to have my site listed if it’s possible. Thanks for everything!

  55. How often will this list be updated? Periodically. A least once a quarter, but possibly more. All three of these companies have gotten better at updating their database and their metrics. That being said, you usually don’t see large swings in any of these numbers, so there is little need to constantly be updating.

  56. Hi Gary: We’re delighted to be on your list! The list is a great service to everyone, and the metrics are very solid. I assume you have no problem with us linking back to the list and to your page in general. Please let us know if you invite guest bloggers as well.

    best regards


  57. Hi Gary! We are a couple that loves to travel and loves to share our experiences. Would you consider adding our website to your list of Travel Blogs for 2019? Here is the link to our site.

    Thank you for your consideration!
    Thomas and Clay

  59. Hi Gary, I heard about your list on the Passport Travel Marketing & PR podcast. Please could you add my blog Thanks!

  60. Hi Gary
    I’d love if you checked out my travel blog.
    Hope I get added.

  61. Hi Gary!
    I just checked and you’ve added my blog,
    Thank you very very much, really appreciated :)

    • I cannot list sites without their own domain name because everything involves domain metrics. It clearly states that I can’t list sites from or wordpress.scom

  62. That list is impressive! It would be great to be included as well. This is our website: Thanks a lot Gary!

  63. Hi Gary!
    Amazing list and interesting metrics you choose now.
    Is there any chance you can add my blog to the list? is in Spanish and used to be 100% travel, now it’s 80% travel with a little of digital marketing, entrepreneurship, minimalism, digital nomad lifestyle in general.
    Hope to appear in the next update, thank you!!

  64. Hi, I’ve had a travel blog awhile, but still have a lot to learn. Could you add
    Best regards,

  65. Can you please check the Trust Factor for 2foodtrippers? I think it’s 10 points higher than what’s currently listed. Thanks!

    • It is updated periodically. If there are major changes between updates, you have to request it as it is all done by hand.

  66. Hi Gary, thanks for including us in the list, it’s a fabulous resource but would it be possible to update my site from the http to the https address? I changed it quite a while back and think that is why many of the stats are missing and others are very out of date. The address is Thank you.

    • Domain metrics have nothing to do with http or https. They are based on the root domain.

      I updated your stats, but there wasn’t much of a change.

  67. Hi! I’m Thomas from Nice, France. I run a travel blog about the French Riviera, Monaco and Provence. Is it possible to add my website to your list? Would be great :).
    The address is: https://FrenchRiviera.Travel

    Thank you and best regards from France!

  68. Hi, I’m Marion and pretty new in the travel blogger community – my blog’s just running for a few months.
    I’d love to get it added on your list…here’s my URL:
    I’ll certainly start out at the very bottom, but I’ll take it as challenge for the next years!

  69. Hi Gary, I seem to have disappeared from your list. Please could you add me back in?

    Trust is 18
    DA 39
    Ahrefs – don’t know
    Age 8 years (31/3/2011)


  70. Hi Gary, Thanks so much for putting this together, I can imagine it’s a lot of hard work. I’m utterly, utterly thrilled to be in the top 100. Please let me know when you come to France, I’d love to toast you with a glass of wine and say thank you. Best wishes, Janine

  71. Hi Gary,

    Did you just update the DA? Since last year, my trust flow and domain rating went up, but right now, it’s still the old data on the spreadsheet.


    • Yes, I just updated everyone’s DA. I didn’t update any other metrics.

      I just did a manual update of your TF and DR.

  72. Hi,

    Perhaps you like my Blog? I would very much appreciate if you would add it to your Links of your excellent website!

    My Travel Blog:
    Text: Rolandomio Travel Blog – it’s the Journey that counts not the destination

    Thanks a lot for your consideration.

    Cheers, Roland

  73. Hi Gary, could you add me?

    Thanks for putting together such a comprehensive list. Very interested by the latest DA changes. Seems to be for the best generally in that it recognizes the value of legit content producers (most travel bloggers) over spammers.


  74. Hey! Wonderful article. Would love for my new(ish) travel blog to be added to the list! Appreciate your attention to detail!

  75. Hi Gary, thanks for this extensive list of travel blogs! I used to read your posts religiously on Travel Blog Success FB group back then. Learned a lot about photography and blogging. But, interestingly never stumbled upon this extensive list of travel blogs.

    Please take a look at my travel blog and I would appreciate if you can add it to the list. I have been blogging for over 3 years now. I primarily write about traveling on visas, targeting travelers from developing countries. Thanks, Gary!

  76. Hi,

    Greetings from India!

    Not sure if our blog is already in the list. If not pls take a look at details.

    Best regards,
    Poorna & Brinda

  77. Hi, Gary, great job on the list.

    My website is with a DA of 30 and 3.5 years old –

    I’d appreciate if you consider adding it. Thank you!

    PS: It was a pleasure meeting you in TBEX Jerusalem in 2017. :)

  78. Wow what an impressive list of blogs! Our blog is about New Zealand & worldwide travels – I wonder if it can be added? So keen to see what place can we score :)

  79. Hi Gary,

    Do you mind looking on my site It’s only about travel but it’s small.


  80. Hi Gary, great list! Would be thrilled to be considered. My blog should fit the criteria.

  81. Hi Gary—Happy New Year!

    I swear Have Baby Will Travel used to be on here. Is it possible to re-add?


  82. Hi Gary! I would love if you could add the Trekaroo blog. Our blog’s homepage is . We are far from corporate. Just a few parents dedicated to sharing our love for family travel with our readers. We are celebrating year 9 of our blog’s existence.

    • I responded to your husband back in June.

      Most of your site is not a blog. Most of it is user-generated content with a blog attached. Because these are all domain metrics, I can’t isolate just your blog. Most of your site is closer to being TripAdvisor than a regular travel blog.

  83. Love reading these lists.
    I also have a travel blog:
    Would you be able to add me to the list?

  84. Hi Gary,
    Thanks for sharing this amazing list.
    Could you add my blog to the list? I would love to know how I rank.

  85. Hello Gary, thanks for the list, interesting! If you consider foreign language blogs as well (mine has limited English content, mostly Hungarian), I blog since 1996 (!), current domain is from Dec 2010, DA 29, this Majestic Trust Flow figure is 20, total social following (all organic) 35K. I freelance for Natgeo online in Hungary, and lots of prints: Forbes, Geo and several other magazines (all in Hungarian). Visited 124 countries and 473 UNESCO sights (I also collect them, like you:-) Regards, Eva (

  86. Thank you so much for including me on this list. Making the top 100, I can tell you I’m doing cartwheels in my little pigsty in France (it’s my makeshift office and the pig’s not here!). Feeling totally inspired by this. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from a happy travel writer in the middle of nowhere France!

  87. What a fascinating list, so many amazing travel blogs to research now. Would it be possible to include our blog in your list? We are only small and have been running for a little over 3 and a half years. Not sure if we are popular enough to be listed.

  88. Hey Gary,

    I’m the owner of, I share my travel guides and itinerary, plus photos and travel films about destinations are around the world and I was wondering if you could add my site to the list. I’m not sure how the qualification here works but here are some ranking info that you might find useful:

    Majestic: 21
    Moz: 34
    Ahref: 61

    Let me know if this info are enough to be considered to be on the list.

  89. Good Afternoon,

    Really like the site, a ton of great content. Just wanted to reach out to see if you may want to include our website. We are the top independent travel website in South Carolina and thought maybe your readers would enjoy some reading. Our site is . Take a look and maybe we could be a useful resource for your website. Thank You

  90. Hi Gary,

    Hope you can include my travel blog – B.L.A.S.T. – Benjie Layug: Adventures of a Savvy Traveler. At 60, I’m probably one of the oldest travel bloggers around. I’m a late bloomer when it comes to traveling but, once I got into it, the travel bug has never left me. Written 5 travel books on Philippine travel too.



  91. Would love to be listed somewhere please Gary.
    Even if its in the oldies ?
    We did have a quick chat at Tbex Manila a couple of years ago but you probably wont remember.

  92. Hi! It would be amazing if you could add my blog Temples and Treehouses to this list? It’s so interesting to see, thank you!

  93. Hi, Gary:
    Thanks again for including my post, Highlights of Cuba, as a guest post on your site. I loved your panel talk with The Planet D at Travel Con and thought your comment on the open position for “wife and fellow blogger” pretty humorous.

    I would love it if you would include my blog on this list,
    Thank you,

  94. Hi Gary, For some reason the links I left in the TBEX Facebook group were faulty. The sites are up. I fixed the links. Here’s the message repaired: Although I thought it was in there, perhaps as the original domain. Thank you also, Gary. Very generous.

  95. Wow great list Gary, very interesting stats you present here.
    Here’s one to watch, it’s still very new but some nice articles in it

    Will be nice to monitor and see how the stats improve over time.
    Thanks for doing this for all of us travel bloggers.
    Best regards John

  96. THANKS
    This is great list. This is not crap, am glad you did manually check them all before dropping the list.
    Am happy, I can use them to build quality backlinks to my new site.

  97. Hello! My husband and I run A Couple for the Road – Cultural Travel Blog celebrating international art, history, architecture, music, language and culinary traditions. We are based in South Florida, U.S., and would love to be added to the list. MOZ DA26. Thanks!

  98. Hi Gary,

  100. Hey Gary..Great list..I would be super glad if you can add my website as well. :)


  101. Hey Gary! You explained the methodology used for this list (Trust flow, DA, Domain Rating, Domain age…), and that’s very clear. But you didn’t explain how you measured/found/calculated the SEO score?

  102. Hi, and thanks for the great list.
    I would love to have my site Self Arranged Journeys added if possible

  103. Hi! We are a tour and activities directory website, but we recently launch our blog to help traveller to know more about destinations, experiences and interesting in regards to travelling. It would be nice to be listed here.

    Thanks a lot.

  104. Great list with useful details about fellow bloggers and their blogs. Certainly keeps newbies like me motivated to keep up the, hopefully, good work.

    It would be awesome if my travel blog Iva Says is featured in the list in the future. I’d be really happy to see it here.

    All the best,

  105. I’m just starting out as a travel blogger and would appreciate being added to you list of travel blogs.
