Top 50 Canadian Personal Finance Websites

Top 50 Personal Finance Websites

There are a lot of good top personal finance blog lists out there so we decided to take it one step further and collect key performance data to rank these websites by the numbers. 

The list includes benchmarks such as the Alexa score and Moz Domain Authority, social metrics such as the content author’s Klout score, Twitter followers, Facebook Page likes, Google Plus views and the website’s most shared piece of content (as per Buzzsumo). We decided to rank the websites by Moz Domain Authority however by no means is that an end-all metric to accurately determine authority or popularity.

Please note this list is not conclusive of all personal finance websites in Canada. If you think we may have missed a website that could be added please email us at [email protected] or leave a comment below so we can include it on a future release.

Please note: These stats were last updated on April 21, 2015. We update the numbers on a yearly basis so we apologize if the current stats don’t match up exactly. Thank you for your understanding.
