We shall discuss the top blogs and bloggers in Cameroon which you should follow in 2020: Featuring Tech, Business, Entertainment and News Blogs.
Today we shall discuss the top blogs and bloggers in Cameroon which you should follow in 2020. This is mainly a good topic of interest as blogging has been on the rise in Cameroon. There have been several reasons attributed to that.
A few reasons implicated include the decrease in internet fare, the increase of social media, fame, unemployment, competition, the rise of start-ups amongst others. Gone are the days when university graduates will queue up with professional CVs just to get into the job market.
Many avenues such as affiliate marketing, blogging and digital marketing have made it possible to take up a career online. Hence, without any doubt in my mind, blogging remains an ever booming industry in Cameroon and will continue to increase in subsequent years.
What is a Blog?
According to Wikipedia, a blog (which is a truncation of "weblog") is an informational or discussion website which is published on the World Wide Web consisting of a discrete, and often informal diary-style text entries (posts).
These posts are usually displayed in reverse order of chronology, so that the most recent article appears as the first, at the top of the web page.
It should not be confused with a website, though in reality, a blog is a type of website. Chronology of the way posts are displayed is what tends to set them apart.
Reasons to Start a Blog
Blogging, mainly when combined with social media presence, is a reliable way to promote your business online in Cameroon. There are still a lot of small business owners that are hesitant to make the leap and begin a business blog, but they're missing out on a huge opportunity.
Away from businesses, blogs are usually operated or run by single individuals and tend to have a focused niche to set them aside from the competition and write unique content.
Note that, the reasons to start a website might be arguably similar, but it is vital to understand all blogs can be a part of a website or a website, but not all websites can be blogs.
Who is a Blogger?
- A blogger is somebody who blogs or writes content for a blog.
- Blogging can be defined as the act of writing a post for a blog.
A Word About DreamPoinTech
The blog dubbed DreamPoinTech was officially founded in 2019 by Melvin Temo, MD. I say formally established because groundworks for the site was already laid down by 2014. However, it was only till 2019 that original content found its way to the site at regular intervals.
The website was coded and developed from scratch by him and still continues to be the case to this day. So far, he has blogged or written more than 200 articles and plans to achieve the 1000 mark in a few years. Based on his hobbies, content on DreamPoinTech focuses on Tech, Business and Health.
Other diverse content might be added with time and as we get more authors. You might be wondering, who is Dr Melvin Temo? Well, that's me, the writer of this article.

What are The Top Blogs and Bloggers in Cameroon to Follow
Yep, we are finally on the subject matter: Classifying the top blogs and bloggers in Cameroon has been attempted severally by other bloggers. However, it has always been a mixed bag as blogs in Cameroon are in different niches.
It is not unusual to find articles on the web talking of the top 10 blogs in Cameroon without reference to the category of these blogs. I will say I find this ambiguous as the ranking of a particular blog should be done with emphasis to its niche.
Also, some rankings have blogs which do no longer exists (dead links). Hence, we need to clear the clutter.
Modalities for Ranking The Top Blogs and Bloggers in Cameroon
That being said, we will attempt to classify these blogs according to the following criteria:
- Niche: Blog ranks will be done in 4 Categories: Tech Blogs, Business Blogs, Entertainment Blogs and News Blogs.
- Domain Authority and Page Rankings: These have long been debated but play a huge role in SEO and site authority. Hence, we will consider this modality. Where applicable, we will list relevant values as well as Alexa Page ranking info.
- Perceived Social Signals: Followers from Social Media Sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc. will be taken into account. We're aware that this is one of the significant ways to drive traffic to a website and to give an idea of how influential a blog is.
- Website Organization: Designing and categorizing a website is key to the best user experience. Website speeds, on-page ads, content completeness/uniqueness, presence on Google My Business, as well as best SEO practices, are elements that will be considered. These factors may or may not be stated under each class but keep in mind that they are being considered.
- The Top 3 Websites will be listed in each category only. It takes a lot of work to rank according to the above metrics, so we will limit the rankings to 3 in each niche, making it 12 top sites in total.
- For the purposes of this review and to reduce bias (hoping the p-value is less than 1, lol), DreamPoinTech will not be mentioned in any category.
Good! It's time to go to the rankings. We will follow the order as categorized under the niches above viz:
- Tech Blogs
- Business Blogs
- Entertainment Blogs
- News Blogs
Now, let's get to the details:
The Top Tech Blogs and Bloggers in Cameroon to Follow in 2020
Tech blogs in Cameroon still appear to be at their infant stages. I say this because Cameroon does not have dedicated tech blogs to review gadgets and cool tech stuff. Dreampointech will continue in that direction to bridge the gap.
However, here are a few Tech Blogs that stand out:
Lemobileaukamer has been around for more than 6 years. Founded by Minette, a female tech blogger, I will say this is quite impressive. Though she no longer blogs very frequently on the blog, she writes on Networks in Cameroon and Mobile Tutorials.
A quick Twitter check of her revealed she also runs a music blog. Lemobileaukamer bags a decent score of 21 on the Moz authority scale and 436k on Alexa Ranking.
Launched in 2019, Hippotechgroup is founded by Saitu A. Cheng. He is a Teacher, Blogger and ploughs his expertise in the area of ICT, Tech Info, Health and Business.
His on-page scores are tremendous, and he currently uses structured data to make his content understandable by Google and other Search Engine bots. Lastly, his site has an excellent mobile score index as he runs on Accelerated Media Pages (AMP), a feature DreamPoinTech also fully supports. Connect with Mr Cheng.
Placing a Blogger hosted blog is always going to raise a few eyebrows, but this one is worth it. Mobiprox is run by Mr Tayoh. He specializes in VPN Tricks, Modem Unlocks, Software downloads and Network Settings.
Furthermore, a google search of his site revealed a featured snippet for Google My Business (GMB), corresponding to his business registered in Dschang, Cameroon. This is one of the few tech blogs registered on GMB.
For the cons, we noticed a lot of ads on his blog after we bypassed the ad blocker sign. We hope he improves on this. Shout out to Mobiprox!
The Top Business Blogs and Bloggers in Cameroon to Follow in 2020
Here are the top 3 business Blogs and Bloggers in Cameroon:
Before I proceed, I will say this is one of the most professional Cameroonian Bloggers, I know. However, it is shocking to see that he is virtually anonymous in the Cameroonian online space. A testament to this is the fact that I only got to know him a few weeks ago when researching and answering questions on Quora and other reputable SEO websites.
I immediately got to his site, read a few blog posts, subscribed to his channels and reached out to him on WhatsApp as soon as I could, given my busy schedule. I was happy, he responded, and we had a great chat.
N/B: Before I forget, he has an excellent guide on how to succeed in affiliate marketing.
Hehehe, I just realized we spent the last minutes giving all credit to this guy, but it is due, lol. That being said, Enstine Muki is a full-time blogger, coach, Certified Cryptocurrency Expert and Digital Entrepreneur with over 10-year experience working online and helping businesses worldwide develop a substantial online presence.
His site scores an impressive 42 on a scale of 100 with a 2 per cent spam score. Given that he is an SEO expert, this comes as no surprise.
A few people may categorize Ransbiz as the English version of Lemobileaukamer. However, there's more to that. Ransbiz is owned by Angu Ransom.
Founded in 2014, he has since shifted a bit from his blogging on networks and tech in Cameroon but instead focuses a lot more on Digital Marketing, Entrepreneurship and Cryptocurrency. He is also an inspiration to me.
A search of how to make money online in Cameroon pops up Mr Kum Eric Nso. This dude is the founder of Moneymastertutorials. He is quite active in the field of Digital Marketing, Search engine Optimization and Affiliate Marketing. He is one of the prospects to watch out for. Below is a sample of one of his money-making stuns.
The Top Entertainment Blogs and Bloggers in Cameroon to Follow in 2020
Here are the top 3 Entertainment Blogs and Bloggers in Cameroon:
237Showbiz is among the first 2000 websites in Cameroon, Their content is 100% focused on Entertainment. They have unique content. As Neil Patel says, Content is King, and this is the deciding factor for keeping them up the list.
With regards to engagement, they are among the first 700000 sites in the world and have an impressive 100000 followers on Facebook.
The Hot Jem is among the first 15000 Websites in Cameroon. However, given their domain age, we expected them to be among the top websites in Cameroon. They made it to the second position of this ranking because of their Moz ranking (21 out of 100) and content.
Iyunade Blog is among the first 8000 Websites in Cameroon. The blog offers unique contents, and they are on point. I expect Iyunade Blog to quickly become the first blog in English Cameroon.
The Top News Blogs and Bloggers in Cameroon to Follow in 2020
The top 3 News Blogs and Bloggers in Cameroon are:
Le Journal du Cameroun is arguably the best site in this category. Bagging a domain authority of over 65 on a scale on 100 in Moz Domain authority tool, they are a force to reckon with. They cover various news articles in Cameroon including politics, sports, business, culture and health.
Cameroonweb is a bilingual blog. It is currently the 36th website in Cameroon. They have one of the highest Moz ranking in this category(43). The blog has content about News, Entertainment, Sports and Business.
