The Viral Garden's Top 25 Marketing Blogs - Week 19
Wednesday, August 30, 2006
Yes, this one's for real.
Alexa finally updated today, so I thought that we'd all suffered enough, so I'm going to go ahead and post the updated rankings for everyone now, and we'll start again as normal next week.
1 - Seth's Blog - 5,074 (LW - 1)(+385)
2 - Gaping Void - 17,497 (LW - 2)(-382)
3 - Duct Tape Marketing - 18,390 (LW - 4)(-195)
4 - Creating Passionate Users - 20,879 (LW - 3)(-3,098)
5 - Marketing Shift - 45,885 (LW - 5)(+230)
6 - HorsePigCow - 53,115 (LW - 6)(-1,464)
7 - Church of the Customer - 59,947 (LW - 9)(+15,474)

18 - Experience Curve - 147,951 (LW - 24)(+109,451)
19 - Marketing Nirvana - 161,257 (LW - UR)
20 - Marketallica - 171,194 (LW - 19)(+35,045)
21 - Beyond Madison Avenue - 184,054 (LW - 15)(-53,849)
22 - Pro Hip-Hip - Hip-Hop Marketing - 198,642 (LW- 18)(+4,709)
23 - What's Your Brand Mantra? - 249,880 (LW - 20)(-36,797)
24 - Brains on Fire - 258,775 (LW - UR)
25 - Movie Marketing Madness - 259,637 (LW - 23)(-17,900)
First, I wanted to offer a bit of a disclaimer. Remember that these averages haven't been updated in over a month, so there's no shortage of huge moves in both directions. The biggest moves in the Top 10 go to Church of the Customer, that bounded up to #7, and as predicted, Daily Fix rocketed up 13 spots to splash down at #9. Outside the Top 10, Logic + Emotion and Experience Curve both had huge moves.
2 new entries in the Top 25, that will both be very familiar to The Viral Community. Brains on Fire touches down at #24, and Mario's Marketing Nirvana makes one of the biggest debuts ever, coming in at #19. The 'Missed it by THAT much' award goes to Studio UES.
As always, next update is next Monday...hopefully.

Wow, David can no longer claim to be a "nobody" :-)
- At 5:59 PM, Ann Handley said...
David at a loss for words...NEVER thought I'd see THAT!!!
Mack: Wow. Thanks. Your efforts here should be recognized, too....thanks so much for putting this list together.
p.s. For the record, I asked Spike to blog for the Daily Fix *before* he landed in the top 25 today, 'k?

Thanks for maintaining these rankings. It is such a great motivation for all of us marketing bloggers.
Keep up the great work, Viral Gardener...

Wow - good to see my blogging friends recognized by our community! Congrats esp. to David, Ann and Mario!
- At 8:17 PM, Spike Jones said...
I hope they believe you, Ann!

This is exactly why I wanted to start the Top 25, to give exposure to some of the blogs that were 'flying under the radar', and to let people know that they were just as good, if not better than the A-Listers ;)

Mack, that's a most useful list. I have two very well visited blogs on Internet Marketing but unfortunately they don't have their own Alexa ratings. From the associated Alexa ratings and Sitemeter data, I would think they should be within the top 25.
The two blogs are:
The Other Bloke's Blog
Hope you agree. :)

The really weird thing is, that as of today Alexa has reverted to the pre-update (i.e. stuck for a month) numbers again.
And of course no word from Alexa on what's going on :(

Dang, MMM is about to drop back out. Better get back to work.

Congrats! to all moving on up. I better find some innovative stuff to blog about if I want to play around with y'all.
