Top Indian Blogs to Follow in 2020
by Dibakar Bala
Blogging is a long term game. For a long time you have to keep putting out content without even a single visitor reading them.
Statistically, 99% of the Blogs on the world wide web never gets traffic throughout their time of existence.

Criteria we considered while creating this List
Below are the Criteria we took into consideration while selecting and ranking these Blogs.
One of the main criteria behind the chronological order of this list. Targeted and Quality Website Traffic was one of the major Criteria we took into consideration while ranking these blogs.
Awards & Media Mentions
Almost every Blog mentioned here have won some sort of an award or accolades in the past.
Many of the Bloggers were mentioned as Experts at various other Websites and were even a part of Expert Roundup posts.
These media mentions have helped us segregate the real authority blogs from the ones who are simply churn and burn in nature.
Once a Blog becomes an authority, it gets pitched by a lot of Brands from their own industry.
So, one of the easiest way to figure out the most Genuine Authority Blogs is to look at the Brands who have worked with them in the past.
Naturally, no Brand would want to associate themselves with a short lived anonymous Blog. Thus, it has helped us a lot to improve our list.
We looked at the number of Comments these blogs get on a regular basis.
Only a Blog with a loyal fan base would be attracting comments on every post they would publish.
Facebook and Instagram has been a life saver for us while verifying the authenticity of these Bloggers.
Most Bloggers on this list have 2000+ Social Media Fans & Followers including channels like Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and YouTube.
Not just the number of Likes & Follows, we even looked at the recommendations on their Facebook channel to ensure that these blogs have legit fans who really love reading their content on a regular basis.
Quality is ultimate when it comes to Blogging. Nobody wants to read a crappy article that was written with a lacklustre attitude.
Blogposts should always be penomenal or just doesn’t exists.
These Blogs mentioned underneath have some of the most consistently crafted great quality content as their article.
Some of them even have opportunity for you to write guest posts.
If you’re someone who wants to guest post on these High Authority Blogs, just pitch them a great content idea and let them know you’ve found them on my Blog 🙂
Everyone knows that Content is King, but I have my own Quote on this topic which I always share wherever I visit for speaking gigs.
Content is King. But, Consistency is Everything.Dibakar Bala, Founder, DibakarBala.com
As I’ve mentioned in the beginning. Blogging in the initial days is a really painful job.
You need to put up content after content before you finally realize how things actually work.
These Bloggers are phenomenally doing well with their Content. Thus, they’ve been featured on our list of top indian blogs to follow in 2020.
Domain Authority & Rating
Domain Authority and Domain Ratings were 2 other extremely significant criterias which has helped us come up with this list of Top Indian Blogs to follow in 2020.
Both of these scores are an excellent scale to measure a Website’s potential of acquiring Search Engine Rankings.
Domain Age & Existence
Don’t worry. We are not talking about some shady blackhat SEO trick where people used to buy Expired Domain names to make their blogs look older.
I have actually used websites like wayback machine to go through the historical data on these blogs and ensured that they were not any acquired expired domains.
All of these Blogs have been in existence for quite a long time on the internet. Thereby, earning a lot of trust in the eyes of Google’s Bot : RankBrain.
Enough about the criterias. Let’s now jump into the original list of Blogs which have won the pretigious mention of being one of India’s Top Blog to be followed in 2020.
