Top CAD Blogs of 2015

Welcome, and wazzup! As has been my custom for the past 4 years, on basically the last day of the year I post the Top CAD Blogs of the year. Once again, I’m at it. Let’s see who ranked where.

As I explain each year: I ranked the top CAD blogs according to Alexa’s Global Traffic Rank. Alexa explains that their traffic rank is a measure of a site’s popularity. The rank is calculated using a combination of average daily visitors and page views over the past 3 months. The site with the highest combination of visitors and page views is ranked #1.

The websites that qualified for consideration were website that were:

  1. Structured primarily as a CAD blog.
  2. Active.
  3. Not highly commercial.
Top CAD Blogs of 2015

This year I considered about 80 blogs, but only 73 made it to my larger list. This is because a number of blogs didn’t have data for consecutive years, so I dropped them. My larger list is in table format below.

Here are two charts displaying the top 25 blogs.

Here’s the pie chart of the top 25.


Here’s the bar chart of the top 25.

In tabular form, the Alexa Global Traffic Ranks for the 73 blogs are:

    Congratulation to Edwin, Shaan and Maciej. Can you also include my Blog? Because of written in German the traffic rank could be low.

    Regards Jürgen
