Chinese novel rankings Qidian part 2

Hey, Aran here. Some of you have looked at my previous list and said it was incomplete – it’s missing genres, it only shows the top 10, you can’t get a true sense of how each novel compares to each other across genres etc. (I mainly focused on Xuanhuan and Xianxia previously). You can find the previous lists here And this criticism was true, because it would be too much of a bother typing out everything otherwise xD

But since there’s been a call for me to rectify this, I will. So I will do the top 50, all time for the recommended rankings and the click rankings as I feel these are the categories that are most relevant.  I think these rankings will give a better picture of exactly how popular each of these web novels were. Please note that newer series will not do as well as older series in these all time rankings, so it is HEAVILY BIASED towards old series. I cannot stress that enough. If you want to have an idea of what the current popular series are on qidian, look at my previous lists.


 

书友点击排行榜 (Click ranking)

Exactly what it sounds like. The highest in this ranking has the most clicks in that period of time – there were more people reading this novel.

推荐排行榜 (Recommendation ranking)

Users of qidian have certain ‘votes’ that they can use to support a novel if they choose. This measures which novel has the most votes in that period of time.

So hopefully this has given you a better understanding of how each genres rank when placed against each other. You’ll notice that there’s a lot of novels that were not the lists that I placed last time because they were in other genres (Wuxia, virtual gaming etc). I also hope that this has made you check out some of the lesser known series on this list ^.^ I’m working on another similar type of post, this time for the site Zongheng so look out for that in the future!

Please leave comments and criticism if you have any issues or enjoyed browsing through this!
