Darth Godin tightened his deathgrip on the Top 25 this week, moving his Alexa score under 5,000 for the first time. But not to be outdone, Duct Tape Marketing and Gaping Void both dipped under 17,000, to mark the first time we've had four blogs with an Alexa ranking under 17,000. Past the Top 4, Daily Fix, New School, and Converstations all had big weeks.
Past the Top 10, L+E, Jaffe Juice and Diva Marketing all had nice weeks. John continues his winning streak as Make Marketing History has another nice move.

As Marketers we too often set our own work aside for the betterment of our clients. As a result our blog is a well kept secret.
Thanks for helping to pull us out of the grass and show a little light on Mark's unique style.

I suppose that I should point out that the MSCO blog is actually titled, Unconventional Thinking.
However, most people know Mark Stevens from his books, Your Marketing Sucks, and Your Management Sucks.

Great idea! Thanks for continuing to look for ways to make all of us better. I've added to the cause as well!

Issue me a late pass, but can you school me on what a Z-lister is, and what your ranking criteria is for the top 25? Great blog!
