    Enjoy the 100 Without the Hard Work

    We do all of the hard work, researching 1000s of music sites to pinpoint the top 100 in the world. Anyone who has carried out music influencer research knows just how time consuming the process is, especially when many music sites are not up to scratch.

    Who's Included?

    The SOS 100 includes online music sites whose main activity is to provide music reportage. We’ve excluded sites that are an extension of print magazines, newspapers, radio stations, forums and online boards. We’ve also used editorial discretion to omit sites that are of poor quality.

    Are these the Most Influential?

    Influence is subjective, but the SOS 100 is the best measure of global music influence to date. For this index, we measured the Klout scores for 1000s of music sites in 2014 to create an index of the 100 most influential.
