Surprisingly strong week for the Top 25. From what I recall of last year, the last week of 2005 was fairly slow, seems like most of the blogs in the Top 25 had a good week. Perhaps the biggest news is that the 'Z-List' has reached the Top 25, as Drew's Marketing Minute becomes the first member of the 'Z-List' meme to crack the Top 25. Several other members of the meme have seen huge jumps and could make a move toward the Top 25 in the coming weeks.

Notice that an Alexa ranking of 200K will no longer qualify your blog for the Top 25. Yikes. And what is up with Church of the Customer being #25 and on the verge of falling out of the Top 25? Isn't that a sign of the blogging apocalypse?

As always, next update is next Wednesday.

UPDATE: Ben explains in the comments that Church of the Customer has changed it's URL. Yep that's it.

Mack,

I'm absolutely ecstatic at the growth my blog has had over the last six months. I hate to ask, but I am curious how I'm not in the Top 25.

I've had consistent growth, just topping 100k on Alexa's 3 month and I'm now in the top 12k on Technorati... this is some huge growth and exceeding quite a few of the fine blogs listed here.

The Z-lists has really helped, but so has many, many hours of work!

Like I said, I'm inclined not to ask... but I had to! :)

Congrats, Drew! That's fantastic!

Mack -- thanks for the time and effort you put into creating this list. And for giving me something to shoot for when I started blogging.

I'm honored to be on any list with this caliber of thinkers and writers.

Without a doubt, your z-list helped me introduce myself and my blog to many new readers. Now I have the awesome task of staying readworthy.

Ann -- it really is fantastic, isn't it? Thanks so much!

Drew

I don't think it's the apocalypse. Probably has more to do with us changing our blog URL to www.churchofthecustomer.com.

Doug, let me check it out. Thanks to the 'Z-List', I now have MANY new blogs to check out, I'm trying to wade through them as fast as I can ;)

Ben that was it. I knew that something was up with CoC's ranking dropping. I changed the URL in the post.

Hi, Mack!

Wondering if you might consider putting One Degree, the Canadian marketing blog, on your to-watch list! Some great marketing talent and insight writing there (inlcuding me :-)
