The Top 10 YouTube Video Bloggers

One of the most popular sites today is YouTube.com and one of the biggest reasons for its huge popularity is thanks to video bloggers. While there are plenty of ‘all-stars’ when it comes to video blogs, we wanted to see who the top were. With that said, we have put together a list of the Top 10 YouTube Video Bloggers.

With some of those on our list first starting way back when YouTube first launched, it is no wonder that they have exploded in popularity. While some may consider them only ‘online’ celebrities, many have used their online influence to land roles on Television shows as well as becoming ‘household’ names. From getting your news to having a few laughs, these video bloggers are the best at what they do.

For our list, we analyzed the video bloggers based on 4 categories: 1. YouTube Channel Views, 2. Subscribers,  3. the number of videos they have and 4. how many months they have had an active YouTube account.  All traffic statistics were drawn from YouTube.com and are current as of August 29, 2009.
