Top 100 Most Influential UK and US Mummy Bloggers

by | Jun 13, 2018 | Influencer Lists,

Mummy bloggers continue to command dedicated followings in their millions, and the main reason for this is readers appreciate the honesty and authenticity of their posts. A real mother, blogging about family life and giving accounts of their life with children and all that entails makes for engaging conversation.

Mummy bloggers and their fans are among the most highly connected support networks of all accounts on social media and forums. For brands looking to promote their products or services Mummy bloggers are a popular, trustworthy way of spreading your message. This message will be perceived in an authentic way that is more effective than traditional advertising due to the power of personal recommendation.

We analysed all the posts by Mummy Bloggers from 12th June 2017 – 12th June 2018, looking at social influence as well as authority by analysing how much influencers are referenced on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Forums, Blogs, News and Tumblr content. These influencers were then identified and added to our Influencer Relationship Management software (IRM) to generate the influencer rankings and network map.

Here is a snapshot of some of their most popular keywords over the last 12 months:

When broken down further we noticed there were 10 topics or themes that kept appearing in their posts, those 10 most popular topics were Money Saving, Travel, Food, Parenting, Home and Interior, Babies, Education, Health and Wellness, Pregnancy and Mental Health.

At Onalytica we love building these lists and want to give back to our loyal readers as much as we can. If you’re interested in other topics (such as Virtual Reality, Digital HealthDigital Marketing) be sure to have a look on our blog or why not propose some topics to us on Twitter?

Effective influencer marketing starts with identifying relevant influencers for your brand. Onalytica’s new Discovery platform mines over 200 billion posts a year into a curated database of over 500K global social media influencers, including data from Twitter, Blogs, Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, LinkedIn Profile Links + Demographic Data. Our software enables you to identify influencers by topic, demographic or content and includes real-time tracking and measurement reporting to scale your influencer relations.


Disclaimer: As ever with these lists, it must be stressed that the ranking is by no means a definitive measurement of influence, as there is no such thing. The individuals and blogs listed here are undoubtedly influential when it comes to driving the online discussion.

The PageRank based methodology we use to extract influencers on a particular topic takes into account the number and quality of contextual references that a user receives. We looked at social topical influence as well as topical authority by analyzing both their social engagement on Twitter and how much influencers were referenced on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, Forums, Blogs, News and Tumblr content. These calculations also take in to account a user’s resonance (engagement) relevance (number of posts on topic) and reach (number of followers). If you want to learn more, please read our article that outlines How to identify your target influencers.
