Top 40 Automated Testing Blogs - Nov 2008

Top 40 Automated Testing Blogs - Nov 2008

At the end of October 2008 I invited my readers to send me their favorite Automated Software Testing blogs.

I would like to thank those readers who shared most interesting and useful blogs.
Great job, dear colleagues! :)

As a result, I'm glad to introduce the final list of Top 40 Automated Testing Blogs.

I sorted these blogs on the basis of:
  • PageRank (PR) - Google's view of the importance of a pag. The bigger, the better.
  • AlexaRank (AR) - Alexa's range of a site based on a traffic.The lower, the better.
  • TechnoratiRank (TR) - position of the blog among all Technorati blogs. The lower, the better.
  • Comments (Cmts) - number of comments for all articles posted during previous 3 months (Aug, Sep, Oct 2008). The bigger, the better.
  • Incoming links (Links) - number calculated by Yahoo Site Explorer. The bigger, the better.

I know for sure - authors of these blogs did an excellent job. Thank you very much!

Note: I understand that nothing is constant. And this list of Automated Testing Blogs should be updated periodically. Also I'm sure that some cool blogs are not present on this list.

That's why I need to know your opinions. Do you have something to add? Please share.

Dear reader, do you have interesting ideas for such future lists, surveys, actions? What posts would you like to see here? Let me know please.

@Anonymous (Recruiter),

Actually, it's not easy to assess skills of QTP consultants. There aren't such 'magic' numbers :)

This is like the BCS of Test Automation, but I will stop short of calling for a playoff system.

I found some interesting new blogs from the rankings. Thanks for putting this together.
