Welcome to the second quarterly update of the top Asian and Black couple websites for 2016, second quarter – see all of the previous Asian and Black website rankings here. In the second quarter of 2016, we continue to see the number of Asian and Black couple websites exploding – see the ABC full list of Asian and Black couple related websites here. In this set of rankings, all of our #1 websites from the 6 categories we track kept their #1 rankings, but there were other changes in the top 10 rankings by category.

As a reminder, for ranking purposes, we sort Asian and Black couple websites into 6 categories:

  • Online Groups
  • Meet Up Groups
  • YouTube Channels
  • Instagram Sites
  • Facebook Pages
  • Blogs

In order to be eligible for these rankings, the website has to be either primarily or partially devoted to Asian and Black couples or relationships – either BMAW or AMBW. The website can discuss other topics such as lifestyle, fashion, general race relations, etc., but there needs to be a part of the site that focuses on Asian and Black relationships. In this quarter’s rankings in the website category, we are also including websites which focus on the Black experience in Asian countries or the Asian experience in African countries. These websites are a great resource for many Black and Asian couples and naturally cover Black and Asian relationships as well.

As always, we exclude any websites or groups that have a heavy sex related theme, and we also exclude websites which have not had meaningful activity in the last 12 months, even if they used to be really popular before the most recent 12 months. Websites come and go all the time. Obviously, if we missed any websites that you believe belong in these rankings, please bring them to our attention for review.

In the rankings below, websites that primarily focus on AMBW couples will be shown in this green color. Websites that focus on BMAW couples or general Blasian couple topics will be shown in the standard black color. However keep in mind that AMBW oriented websites will occasionally cover BMAW topics and likewise, many BMAW oriented websites will occasionally cover AMBW topics. Also for the quarterly update, websites moving up or down in the rankings are noted and websites that stayed the same in the ranking are not noted. Now let’s get to the rankings!

With over 1 billion websites globally right now, any global ranking less than 10 million is actually pretty good, and a global ranking in the top 1 million sites is really excellent. Many of the websites that cover Asian and Black relationships in one way or another also cover the Black experience in Asia, or the Asian experience in Africa, so starting with this ranking we are expanding our website coverage to include websites that cover the Black experience in Asia or the Asian experience in Africa, as well as websites that more strictly cover Asian and Black couple relationships.

Jennifer Gabriel continues to produce the #1 Asian and Black relationship blog right now called Western Girl Eastern Boy (WGEB) and it’s ranked in the top 500,000 websites globally which is superb. WGEB has shifted their focus somewhat to the Black experience in Korea which is also very helpful for Asian and Black couples. Dom & Hyo maintains the #2 spot also ranking in the top 1 million sites worldwide.  The newly updated Love Life Of An Asian Guy site jumps back to the #3 spot, while the ABC websites (yours truly) lost a little ground in the last quarter. We are also pleased to add some great websites to the top 10 listing. At #7, the really well done site, Black in Korea covers the Black experience in Korea. At #8, Loco in Yokohama covers the Black experience in Japan. The #9 site, Africans In China, covers the African experience in China, and the #10 site, The Chinafrica Project, covers the Chinese experience in Africa. All four of the new sites have global website rankings in the top 3 million sites.

Summary

Kudos to all of the websites on all of the rankings above. If you know of any websites that should be on these lists, please drop us a line so we can update the listings over time. Educating the world about Asian and Black couples and creating safe spaces for Blasian couples to have intelligent and meaningful dialogue is a labor of love for many. However this collective work is making a difference, and helping to eliminate old and tired stereotypes for both Asians and Blacks. We hear more and more positive reviews of Asian and Black couples from people of all races which is very encouraging.

Best wishes to everyone!
