Top 20 UK tech blogs for August 2011

European search engine and news portal Wikio will be publishing its latest monthly ranking of the top 100 technology blogs in the UK shortly.

As usual, they’ve given me an advance look ahead of publication at the top 20 from the full list of the top 100 tech blogs.

Here are the top 20 for August 2011. Positions relative to last month are shown in parentheses:

  1. TechCrunch Europe (=)
  2. Geeky Gadgets (=)
  3. Electricpig.co.uk (=)
  4. Speckyboy Design Magazine (+1)
  5. Naked Security – Sophos (-1)
  6. Design Shack Blog (=)
  7. eWEEKeurope (+4)
  8. TechRadar (-1)
  9. Thoughts from the Sidelines (-1)
  10. All About Symbian (+3)
  11. Coolest Gadgets (+4)
  12. Econsultancy blog (-2)
  13. Tech Blog (-4)
  14. Photography Blog (+3)
  15. Blog.Spoon Graphics (+1)
  16. The Red Ferret Journal (+2)
  17. We Are Social (+3)
  18. markboulton.co.uk (-6)
  19. Twittercism (NEW)
  20. Coding Horror (-6)

TechCrunch Europe‘s ranking as the #1 technology blog in the UK looks impregnable with the site at this position during every month throughout the year so far. One new entry is Twittercism – now part of Mediabistro’s AllTwitter.com – at #19; a notable absence is the BBC’s dot.Rory which dropped out of the top 20 this month.

Both eWEEKeurope and Tech Blog rose four places compared to July while markboulton.co.uk and Coding Horror both fell six places. Other movements up and down are mostly a bit of jostling here and there with no dramatic shifts in positions compared to last month.
