The Top 5 “Top 50 Lists of Prepper Web Sites”

Rise Of The Lists

I was catching up on news on my iPhone while waiting somewhere, when I ran across an article titled “Rise Of The Preppers: 50 Of The Best Prepper Websites And Blogs On The Internet“.

“That looks interesting” I thought to myself. I’ll have to check that out later, when I have more time.

When I went to look for it later, but couldn’t remember where it was, so I looked it up in Google.

I searched for “top 50 prepper web sites“.

Wow. To my surprise, there were pages and pages of results for top 50 prepper web sites.

As I looked through them, I saw that most were just linked to the original list, but I found some others that were original.

Why wasn’t there a “Top 40″, I thought to myself, or even a “Top 10″?

What’s up with 50?

Anyway, after I read through them all, I put together this Top 5 “Top 50 Lists of Prepper Web Sites”.

There is some overlap, but there are some unique ones also.

The Top 5 Top 50 Lists of Prepper Web Sites

Here are The Top 5 “Top 50 Lists of Prepper Web Sites”:

1. Survival Top 50: Maybe this is where they got the idea for 50. This list is based on Google Page Rank and Alexa rankings. Not sure that’s the best way to define them, but it works.

2. Self Reliance News:
Says it’s updated daily and it includes thumbnails of the web sites themselves, so you can tell if they suck before you go there.

3. SHTFplan:
The original article that everyone linked to and got my attention to beginning this journey into lists.

4. Rethink Survival:
RSS feeds for all of the sites are listed on this one. The titles of the last 5 posts from each site are displayed and linked to the original posts. They say the list of sites is based on the Survival Top 50, but it was last updated on Sept. 23, 2012. Interesting to get the titles and links from the RSS feeds. I like it.

5. SHTFplan:
OK. I lied. This one only has the top 20, PLUS it’s really just a long involved comment on the Survival Top 50 list. Interesting to hear this guy’s take on the list though.

6. BONUS LIST! Survival Top 50 Runners Up:
These are the wannabes that didn’t rank in the top 50. It looks like there are another 95 sites listed here. Missed it by that much. Suckers! Of course, after I submit my site to their list, I’ll be somewhere, halfway down on the runner up list. Sigh…

Top 10 Prepper Web Sites

Because every “list” post needs a top 10, here’s mine. It’s based on my own personal bias and ignorance.

Please leave a comment and tell my why I’m wrong and which ones you would put in the top 10.

  2. American Preppers Network
  3. Survival Blog
  4. Off Grid Survival
  6. The Survival Podcast
  7. Urban Survival
  8. The Survivalist Blog
  9. The Survival & Emergency Preparedness Blog
  10. Doom And Bloom

The Top 261 Prepper Web Sites

(Note: Tell us who you read and recommend in the comments below.)

Being the tech geek that I am, I had to compile one master list of all of the prepper web sites on all of the lists.

This should be a list of all of the best, (or at least ALL of the), prepper web sites IN THE UNIVERSE!

Some of these really need to be on the runner up list and I’m not even sure that I want to list them here.

I personally don’t endorse the whacko, the weird, or the absurd.

9 thoughts on “The Top 5 “Top 50 Lists of Prepper Web Sites”

  1. Who knew there were so many of them! There’s a lot of gleening available to us, thanks to you! I learn so much on this site, and from the people who write of their own experiences. I’m sure people say “been there, done that, but no matter if you think you’ve heard it all, think again. I always learn something new! Keep up the great work!

  2. Now go back and see how many actually have experience and that list will shrink dramatically. Most are band wagon johnny come latelies. Be very wary of the agenda directions many steer you towards as well

    1. I wasnt sure if the comment was directed at me or the industry in general.
      I only started the site about 9 months ago, but started prepping over 2 years ago, prior to that Marine Corps and Blackwater Iraq/Afghanistan.

      I do agree with you in part, in that there are a lot of johnny come latelies however i would distinguish between people who have just discovered prepping and want to share their experience vs a “Buy my 46 Items to hoard before the apocalypse” type site…

      Anyways I hope maybe my credentials might get you to visit the site, i dont try to push an agenda, however if you think im full of it and i do have an agenda let me know!

  3. Every prepper has their own survival / prepping website – it’s kind of ridicules. 99% have absolutely no credentials or background and they’re trying to tell you how to survive a major breakdown of the current system.

    Stick with the folks that have proven knowledge and a track record – such as books published by independent publishers, reviews and articles published in major magazines, actual training etc…

    I stick with – – and The Survival Podcast.

  4. This lists are based off of ranking data, none of which are based on actual value like their content. Shit, most of the ones on the list are nothing more than link and rss farms syndicating others content while not being operated by vets, survivalists, operators and etc. kind of a joke but the more the marrier I guess.

  5. Nice list and thank you for compiling this!

    At the risk of offending Matt in Oklahoma or Mike I would like to submit our own blog at If you feel it is worthy of inclusion I would appreciate it. As far as experience I am ex-military, but nothing hard-core like Special Forces and have been prepping for over 5 years.

    I won’t try to sell you my 10-point plan on how to be a better vegetable or anything like that.

  6. Hey I’m on that list, thank you!

    I hope that people are able to take something useful away from my blog. I’m not Special Forces or anything fancy like that, just a normal guy who enjoys trying to live a more Prepared and self reliant life.

    If someone dosn’t like my blog, then don’t read. If you do like it then please keep coming back.

    Thanks for the link and take care.
