Top Bloggers in Pakistan Ranking 2012

Blogs are internet media channels that have a profound effect on the way information is shared over internet.

Recalling the early days, there used to be a time when Blogging was something unknown among Pakistani internet surfers but thanks to social media websites, cards seem to have reversed now.

Blogging ain’t something fishy, indeed its an art and how could Pakistani’s lag behind someone else when it comes to creativity.

It won’t be surprising to know that many of the giant blogs today on the planet internet lay their origins from Pakistan.

Pakistan is a land swamped with enormous talent in all walks of life so hunting down a top 10 list was a pretty much daunting task. Anyways I have poured in my endeavors to compile a list of 10 Bloggers in Pakistan whom according to me deserve International Recognition and Exposure for their marvelous work and that’s the only reason why I have written this post.

1- Syed Balkhi

syed balkhi

Syed Balkhi is a 22 years old passionate blogger who started making several web properties in the year 2006 and back than who would have imagined him becoming one of the most acclaimed professional bloggers on international scene. Today his publications enjoy being an eye candy for many enthusiastic geeks including myself. The journey was not as smooth as it feels rather it contains some serious efforts on Balkhi’s part. Being active and social, Balkhi does not confine his knowledge and experiences to himself rather speaks on latest issues while attending various conferences, events and meetups.

He created WpBeginner.com that gradually turned out to be one of the biggest internet resource for WordPress related issues gaining Google PR7 without intentional link building efforts. That’s not all he owns many micro niche blogs and reviewing his other projects my eyes would definitely stick upon List25.Com another great internet resource.

Historically WpBeginner.com has been one of the most favorite publishers in the eyes of Google supported by the fact, this resource has never suffered a decline in website traffic. The only reason for this kindness by Google is “Never Create Content for Search Engines” rather always create content for the potential audience. This guy sets out an example of natural link building through offering high quality content that we all must follow as Professional Bloggers.

Having a quick look at his personal life, Syed Balkhi was born in Karachi Pakistan but his family moved to the USA where he currently resides. Academically he graduated from University of Florida and currently works on his online projects that make him enough money.

Through his determination and out of the box approach SYED BALKHI has earned the bragging rights to be called as the “Best Blogger in Pakistan for Year 2012″.

If I comment for this man, he is the one who created something on internet that was never done before, hence I would love giving him a thumbs up for his excellence and sharp mind.

2- Taimur Asad

Academically this person is a Graduate in Software Engineering from Bahria University Karachi and apart from Blogging he is proficient in programming languages like C++ and Java.

    Nice list Abdul Rahman. Seems the list is based on people you know. No doubt the bloggers you listed are talented and got famous blogs but there are many others which are mentioned here. (They should be in Top 10).

      Hey Waheed…! Man first of all I welcome you to the website. The only criteria for creating this list was “Quality Content” the more unique and quality content a Blog publishes higher exist chances for getting listed here. I know there are many others but a majority of the bloggers listed here have been blogging since 2004-2008 so they have made a name for themselves. I considered many others but they missed out somewhere when we say “innovation and out of box approach”. I wish all upcoming and other bloggers best of luck for their projects.
