Website Global Alexa Ranking
This year’s winner by a long way, Technode is the go-to site for all things tech in China. It also carries Chinese versions of its English language articles. Great job and congratulations!
China Briefing 159,664
Your favorite website, recently redesigned, up one place to second this year. Thanks!
The highest ranked Chamber of Commerce website in China, and taking third place in this year’s poll, the first time a chamber website has appeared in the top three. A very active chamber and well representative for European businesses in China. Congratulations!
Marketing To China 242,183
A well maintained and useful website, designed to provide fresh insights and a deeper understanding of the Chinese market.
China Internet Watch 301,638
Monitoring Chinese research and online shopping – and as China’s e-commerce sales continue to explode its a great resource.
Quality Inspection 317,099
A perennial favorite and must-view for all buyers involved in China.
Amcham China 361,637
The American Chamber of Commerce is members-only but very active, and widely deserving of its high ranking.
China Check Up 427,231
A due diligence site, providing information and verification concerning Chinese companies and infrastructure.
China Law Blog 507,302
Has tended to become somewhat repetitive in terms of content, but still a great resource for students and US based legal counsel involved with Chinese law from the American perspective.
A members-only organization, but important China intelligence for Hong Kong-based businesses.
A rather odd hybrid of the CBBC and the British Chamber of Commerce in China. Both are members-only organizations. Unfortunately, the merger doesn’t seem to be working – rankings have reduced considerably over the past two years and a fresh editorial approach is needed.
Silk Road Briefing 918,463
A newcomer, and thus far the only consistently published website dedicated to China’s Belt & Road Initiative.
Bill Bishop’s well-known newsletter. The subscription fee probably keeps the ranking lower than it deserves.
China Recruiting Blog 4,509,706
Professional matters relating to recruitment in China.
China Solved 11,871,354
Andrew Hupert’s website about negotiating with Chinese companies.
Managing The Dragon No Ranking
Jack Perkowski’s website dealing mainly with the auto industry in China.
Websites and blogs inevitably come and go, and new technologies emerge. What counts in terms of achieving high rankings are a regular series of relevant and valuable articles.
It is of note that Technode, a technical website, has taken this year’s first place, and with a very high ranking, is going to be hard to beat. Our own China Briefing is about to celebrate its 20th anniversary, yet has managed to remain relevant.
Other websites involved in digital marketing, market intelligence, and QC have also moved into sustainable positions, while institutional websites such as Eurocham and Amcham have also gotten their act together and are adept at providing digital content.
Congratulations to all concerned!
