SethGate has spilled over to the Top 25 Marketing Blogs list a bit, as I've had a few people mention that if Seth doesn't have a blog, that he shouldn't be ranked. If I were doing this list solely for myself, I might agree. But as I've always said, this is a project for The Viral Garden's community, and since I am a part of that community, I'm not going to pull Seth. I still think he's a very smart guy, as do most people. And many bloggers have zero problem with anything that happened this weekend, or with him not allowing comments. So there's no need to change anything. To be perfectly honest, I have much more important things to concentrate on than Seth's blog/website/online brochure.
As for the rest of the Top 25, there seems to be a rift developing between the Top 14 and the rest of the Top 25. That could change next week as we wait to see what type of bounce Diva Marketing gets from being featured as Typepad's 'blog of the day' for yesterday, and as FutureLab continues their hot streak. Ageless Marketing finally cracks the Top 25, after barely missing the last 3 weeks, so congrats to David.
As always, next update is next Monday.

Any way to get an OPML snapshot of the top 25?

I'll see what I can do Andy.

Does http://www.mlmblog.typepad.com qualify as a marketing blog?

The top 25 list is getting better from the bottom---first list had #25 ranked in the 400k level, and now #25 is in the 300k level.
So the rankings of the whole group are getting higher...

I'm highly critical of Seth but I just want to say I agree with your decision not to boot him.
- At 10:29 PM, Mack Collier said...
Kim, you're exactly right. The Advertising Top 25 has moved up as well, #25 in the first list was around a million, now it's under 700K.

I guess the move up from the bottom has a few reasons:
1. everybody starts looking at each other :) visitors of this blog are starting to look at all those other 24 blogs, pushing their numbers up
2. The trailing 3 months of Alexa. For instance, it looks as if Futurelab is having 'a streak' as Mack put it, while in actual fact our day-to-day ranking on Alexa has been pretty stable around 75k for the past month. But as we have only been around for three months, and Alexa bases its numbers on the three months averages, it looks as if we're moving up the ranks like mad every week.
The same effect will affect (oh, didnt you always wish to use those two words in one sentence like that?) several of the other blogs.
But its a good thing all in all :)
