On this top 15 Indonesian video game journalism websites in June 2018, only a little change happen in top 10 lists. Duniaku.net is still going strong in the first place with Alexa rank 61 or one rank better from last month’s. In the second place, there is Jalantikus.com with Alexa rank 116 (last month was 125) and is followed by Duniagames.co.id with Alexa rank 198 (last month was 224).

Like last month, IDEA Network’s group website is still going strong in the top 5 list although the rank slightly decrease. GGWP.id still in 4th rank (Alexa rank 311) and Teknosaurus.com in 5th rank (Alexa rank 772).

Indonesian Game Journalists Form Association to Create Better Ecosystem for Gaming Industry

To create a better ecosystem for the gaming industry, some Indonesia's gaming media formed an association called Asosiasi Media Game Indonesia (AMGI, or Indonesian Gaming Media Association).

Definition of Video Game News Websites

Defining video game websites is not that simple. Every site has its own uniqueness and composition. There are sites that have wide-range of topics and cover topics outside gaming (like Duniaku.net, Jurnalotaku.com, etc). There are also sites that only focus on one game or one specific genre (like Revivaltv.id and Hasagi.gg). 

In this ranking, video game website is defined as:

  1. A site that covers game only
  2. A site that includes games in its top category, that has articles, videos, or images as contents.
  3. A site that was established in Indonesia and has nation-wide coverage.

This list is also limited only to games websites & blogs that have been tracked by Alexa site evaluators. Furthermore, sites that are included in this list have to be active, which means they must at least published one article in the past week before the data compiled.

How Accurate Is This?

Because it is based on prediction, the data shown is not 100% accurate. This data is taken from Alexa.com, based on their proprietary tools.

Even though it’s not 100% accurate, Alexa’s data is one of the most used data in industry benchmarking, thus, it has strong authority to quantify traffic from a site.

Alexa.com’s data is updated every day. The movement of the data can also be significant each day. Because of that, data shown here is more of a snapshot of Alexa rank in a day, June 6, 2018, to be precise.

Is This Ranking Comprehensive?

No. Alexa only provides the list of top 500 sites from Indonesia. Other than that, it is based on personal research.

So based on the definition above, these are top 15 game media in Indonesia according to Alexa ranking, June 2018 edition.
