Top 100 Travel Blog Posts of 2015

Welcome to the Top 100 Travel Blog Posts published during 2015 as shared on Social Media!

As a follow-up to the Top 100 Travel Blog Posts of 2014 by Social Media Shares, I wanted to curate a list of travel blog posts that did well during 2015. I canvassed as many travel bloggers as I could reach via email, Facebook, and Twitter — I even wrote a post soliciting submissions. With over 500 entries received ranging from lists to photo essays to food to long reads, I tabled the results using Share Tally to come up with the Top 100.

How is this list different?

There are a few sites that maintain regular lists of Top Travel Blogs, but this is the first list devoted to social sharing performance of individual travel blog articles.

How are the Top 100 Travel Blog Posts by Social Shares measured?

This list uses Share Tally to determine the social popularity of each post. Metrics used include Facebook (Likes, Shares, and Comments), Pinterest , Google+, StumbleUpon (Stumbles, Likes, and Lists), LinkedIn, and Buffer. (Note: Twitter results were not included since Twitter removed share count capability from its API. Reddit was removed from the final chart tally since few of the Top 100 Travel Blog posts had any shares on Reddit.)

All social media numbers were pulled from Share Tally over a 24-hour period on February 9th & 10th, 2016.

Note that this list does not include page views from Google Analytics as a factor.

Consideration for inclusion was by voluntary opt-in using a Google Form during the submission period from July 30 to August 15, 2015.

If you are a travel blogger who did not get a chance to submit an article for consideration for the Top 100 Travel Blog Posts of 2015, there will be another list of Top 100 Travel Blog Posts of  2016 which will be launched in January 2017. Add your name to this form if you are interested, and you’ll receive an email reminder when submissions open.

What is excluded from this list?

  • Non-independent travel site articles (e.g. Huffington Post, CNN, BBC, Lonely Planet, Daily Mail, LifeHacker, corporate blogs, etc.)
  • Articles covering topics pertaining to digital nomadism, blogging, and social media.

  1. So happy my post about Ireland made the list and am loving all the other posts. What a great way to find quality blog content to read – it’s going to take me weeks to get through but I will enjoy finding out how to wrote shareable content. Thanks again for all your hard work on this post.

  2. Awesome collection of great posts! I’m loving all the SE Asia posts… I’m headed back this year and need some help narrowing down where to go in Philippines and Indonesia! I think I’ll get a few suggestions here 🙂

  3. Love this list! Gives me a lot of things to read for the rest of the weekend! Also makes me wish I didn’t second guess myself on submitting some of my articles! Thanks for putting this together!

  4. This is really the saddest indictment of travel blog readers I’ve ever encountered. With all the wonderful possibilities of the internet and opportunities to learn about other cultures, all people want are top tens and more bucket lists. The dull commercial offerings of printed travel media have been replaced by something even less inspiring, with just a handful of notable exceptions on the list

  5. This made my day, I’ve never come first in anything before! Its interesting to see the type of articles that have done well over the year and to find a lot of other blogs to check out for later.
