    I note two higher Australian entries - chessexpress at #17 and Mato Jelic's Chess School at #25.

    I can't really say how reliable it is. It is worthwhile clicking on "About this link and ranking" to see what criteria it employs. Some of these are dubious and may prioritise obscure blogs with high activity, relatively inactive blogs by sites with high social media followings and so on. I wouldn't classify some of the top sites in the list as blogs.

    Not to mention that ''buying clicks'' is quite easy these days...and cheap . So some may have got into ''top 10'' through various marketing ploys.

    I hope you do not include Gardiner Chess in this category of "buying-a-click crowd" You are talking about a formidable and respectable organization holding
    tournaments involving thousands of kids in their school competitions as well as many other chess activities. They wouldn't need such deplorable methods.
