Top Asian and Black Couple Websites for 2016, First Quarter

0
1467

Welcome to the first quarterly update of the top Asian and Black couple websites for 2016, first quarter – see the inaugural rankings from 2015 Q4 here and see all of the Asian and Black website rankings here. In the first 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 the last quarter, all of our #1 websites from the 6 categories we track kept their #1 rankings, with many of them adding significantly to their lead over other websites in the same 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. 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!

In the YouTube category, we now rank channels by number of views as opposed to number of subscribers. Number of views is really what matters for YouTubers once they get past the first 1,000 subs or so. We will show both number of views and number of subs, but the ranking is now based on number of views. The LaVigne Life channel continues to dominate this category no matter which metric is used, and they added over 8 million views and 33,000 subs in the last quarter alone. To put things in perspective, their quarterly increase in views and subs is higher than the lifetime views and subs of any other YouTuber on this list. In the #2 spot at 7.4 million views, Lily Lee’s Blasian Family Channel rebranded as Lily Petals World, broadening her focus out beyond just strictly Blasian couple topics which we think is a smart move. Three channels moved up in the new rankings: MazeLee moved up 1 spot, Loser Laowai moved up an impressive 6 spots, and GS350JPN moved up 3 spots. We also welcome, Primrose Panglea to the list in the number 9 spot, a channel created by an Indian and Zimbabwean couple based in the UK.

Lovely Mimi, Vietnamese, continues to dominate the Instagram category with 739,000 followers, up 208,000 followers since last quarter. Her quarterly increase in Instagram followers is more than the total followers of all of the other top 10 Instagrammers combined which is impressive. Maze of MazeLee moved up one spot on the list, and we welcome two new Instagrammers to the list, Styves Extantus (from an East Indian and Black couple), and wawa sas (from a Thai and Black couple). The Instagram category continues to be the toughest category to keep up with and we now track 82 different Asian and Black Instagram accounts with likely even more Asian and Black Instagram accounts that we do not even know about yet. Drop us a line if know of Asian and Black Instagram pages which we should keep an eye on.

This category only considers Facebook pages, not Facebook groups which are included in the online groups category above. Ranier Maningding, Filipino, the creator of Love Live of an Asian Guy (LLAG), continues to be the king of this category. LLAG, currently with over 73,000 likes, added an impressive 46,000 likes in the last quarter. The top eight Asian and Black Facebook pages all stayed in their same relative positions since last quarter. Also two new pages made the list: ABC Facebook (yours truly) and MazeLee Facebook, both of which saw nice increases in their page likes.

//lifebehindthewall.wordpress.com/

With about 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. Jennifer Gabriel continues to produce the #1 Asian and Black Couple blog right now called Western Girl Eastern Boy (WGEB) and it’s ranked in the top 400,000 websites globally which is superb. WGEB lost a little ground since last quarter likely due to the site redesign, but is still doing great in the #1 spot. Dom & Hyo maintains the #2 spot also ranking in the top 1 million sites worldwide, and we are very pleased to report that the ABC main website also broke the top 1 million sites globally for the first time to capture the #3 spot.  We are also pleased to report that our friends at Asian Women Black Man Tumblr jumped up 3 spots to the #4 spot on the list, and the ABC Tumblr site clocked in at #5 making this list for the first time. Finally, we also welcome, Jo Gan, African American expat in China, who produces Life Behind The Wall, to the top 10 Asian and Black couple websites.

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.

Finally, as we have discussed before, the Asian and Black couple space is a fast growing and dynamic space, with new websites being added every day. One thing that is becoming more and more clear, Asian and Black couples are not nearly as rare now as they have been in the past. The possibilities for Asian and Black couples are indeed quite endless. It will be exciting to see this all play out over time!

Best wishes to everyone!
