This makes Duniagames.co.id closer to Duniaku.net in the second place with Alexa rank 123, or 23 ranks higher than last month.

Meanwhile, nothing has changed in the top 5. But in the top 10, there are several websites who successfully climbed the rank. Jagatplay.com, Jurnalotaku.com, and Kotakgame.com each climbed one place higher than last month.

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, April 16, 2019, 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, April 2019 edition.
