One of the first changes you'll note is that Guy Kawasaki's blog is no longer in the Top 25. As I said when I started the Top 25, the main criteria was that a significant portion of the blog's posts had to cover marketing. And I feel that Guy's content hasn't included much marketing discussion lately. I'm still a fan of his blog, and will continue to track it and may add it back in the future if he begins to focus more on marketing.
Also, if your blog deals with SEO, Google pageranks, and the like, it will only be listed here if it ALSO devotes a significant portion of the posts to marketing topics. I don't consider such blogs marketing blogs, but rather, SEO blogs.
As for this week, the big suprise continues to be the tear that Coolzor is on. The Belgian marketing blog jumps up 3 more notches this week. Church of the Customer and Jaffe Juice also had nice jumps. The Viral Garden had the biggest jump in Alexa rankings, and FutureLab's blog had the biggest jump in poll spots. Congrats to Michelle Miller for having WonderBranding finally break through to enter the Top 25 after spending the last 2 weeks just missing the cut. Decker Marketing also re-enters the Top 25 at #25.
Ageless Marketing and Movie Marketing Madness (never heard of it...) both had big weeks and just missed the Top 25. Don't be shocked if one or both aren't in the poll next week. Also, Own Your Brand, Michael Wagner's blog that suddenly has everyone talking, looked strong and could be a few weeks away from joining as well.
As always, next update is next Monday.
