The Tots100 is the UK’s largest community of active British Mummy and Daddy bloggers. Every month, we rank all the bloggers in our community using a unique scoring algorithm that reflects a blog’s popularity, influence and engagement.
If you write an independent UK parent blog then we’d love to welcome you to our community. As a Tots100 blogger, we’ll share your blog and posts with our community, increasing your readership and introducing you to brilliant new blogs.
Tots100 bloggers can also enjoy regular blogging tutorials, webinars, social events and free blogging workshops, at our BlogCamp events around the UK.
If you’re interested in working with brands, the Tots100 runs a blogger-brand messaging platform. Tell us about your family and interests in your Tots100 profile, and PR agencies and brands will be able to contact you directly with event invitations, review opportunities and advertising offers. We have more than 100 brands and PR agencies who use the Tots100 to contact bloggers, so it’s a great way to get involved in reviews and brand events. But if you decide at any time you no longer want to receive messages, just log-in and change your preferences in your profile.
To join the Tots100, simply fill in the registration form and once your blog is approved, you will be issued a user ID and password that will give you access to the members-only content on our website. You’ll also be able to download a personalised Tots100 badge, which will display your Tots100 ranking on your blog each month.
If you are interested in working with the UK’s most popular and influential parent blogs, then the Tots100 can help. We provide a range of services to brands from ambassador programmes to strategic consulting, sponsored posts and advertising opportunities, as well as providing companies with fast access to the complete Tots100 database and our opt-in brand to blogger messaging service.
The Tots100 ranks over 4,000 blogs every single month using eight different metrics designed to measure a blog’s popularity, influence and engagement. We score blogs using Google links, Yahoo Inlinks, Postrank, Google Reader subscriber numbers, Klout scores and Technorati Authority.
If you would like to know more about how the Tots100 is calculated, the video below offers an explanation that’s suitable for even non-techies! There is also a Tots100 primer which explains our calculations in more detail.
We are always interested in talking to bloggers about joining our team. Find out more about our team and how you can get involved with the UK’s biggest and most exciting network of parent blogs.
Because our index relies on other people’s software and websites, sometimes problems can occur – if this happens, let us know and we’ll do our best to fix it as soon as possible. You can also log-in to your account at any time to see a complete breakdown of your scores.
If you have a problem registering with us, or using the Tots100, then please contact us and we’ll do our very best to help.
Absolutely. If you’re the site owner and you would prefer we don’t list your blog, we’re happy to remove you, no questions asked.
The Tots100 was devised in March 2009 by freelance journalist and blogger Sally Whittle, and was previously published at Who’s the Mummy. The index is now published by Flea Enterprises Ltd, which is also responsible for organising the MAD Blog Awards for British parent bloggers.
