21 - Marketing Roadmaps - 219,471 (LW - 20)(-12,081)
22 - Logic + Emotion - 224,788 (LW - 23)(+29,167)

24 - WonderBranding - 254,050 (LW - 24)(+16,403)
25 - B2Blog - 266,750 (LW - UR)


The big story seems to be the drops the women bloggers had, especially at the top. Kathy Sierra's CPU had a suprising slide down to #4, giving Gaping Void its highest finish so far in the history of the Top 25, at #2. HorsePigCow also stubbed its toe down a spot to #6, and BL became the 3rd female blogger to fall in the Top 10 as What's Next dipped a notch. The Viral Garden had another strong week to debut in the Top 10 at #8.

Want a perfect example of just how competitive the Top 25 has become? Diva Marketing was #16 in the very first Top 25 list back in April. 3 months later, the Alexa ranking for DM has moved up 40K spots, but Toby's still at #16. A score of 430K would have put you at #25 in the first Top 25 list, now you need a score of 265K to qualify.

Past the Top 10, the biggest moves came from Logic + Emotion, and WonderBranding, which both had nice jumps. And B2Blog re-enters the Top 25 at #25.

As always, next update is next Monday.

Mack,

A Big, Gi-normous congrats on busting into the top 10—and in style of course (coming in at #8).

Amazing. This blog is a case study in mobilizing the community to create brand affinity. In this case, the brand just happens to be you.

Keep up the wonderful work here (and everywhere else you pop up.) I hope the marketing community is learning from all of this.

:)

Mack - thanks for your work in putting this together and maintaining it. It's an honor to be included at any # with this group of talented bloggers.

Thanks guys. The celebration will be put on hold till the rest of the Viral Community makes the Top 25, then we can have one big blow-out bash ;) Chris at Movie Marketing Madness keeps finishing like #26 or #27, and Karl Long did the same thing on the Top 25 Ad blogs.

Toby its my pleasure, and of course being in the company of Diva Marketing and other great marketing blogs only makes me look better ;)
