A reminder that the Top 25 Marketing Blogs are ranked according to the number of sites/blogs linking to each, according to Technorati. The number you see after the blog name is how many sites/blogs Technorati claims have linked to the blog in the last 6 months. After that number is a positive or negative number, and this represents how many links the blog gained or lost from last week's Top 25. The final stat tells you what position the blog held in the Top 25 Last Week (LW).
As for this week, it was fairly timid, with 17 blogs down, and 9 of the Top 10. Past the Top 10, Influential Marketing continues its methodical march up, moving up another notch this week. A sizable gap has developed between #18 and the rest of the Top 25. The final 7 spots are pretty tight though, with only 42 links separating the rest of the countdown. For the record, all of the Top 25 is ranked as being within the top 8,000 blogs on the internet, again according to Technorati.
Congrats to Conversation Agent and Biz Solutions Plus for both breaking into the Top 25 for the first time. Community Guy, Marketing Roadmaps, Marketing Hipster, Greg Verdino's Marketing Blog, Tell Ten Friends, Marketing Nirvana and Shotgun Marketing are all on the verge of joining them.
Next update is next Wednesday.

Although precariously situated, I am honored to break through into the Top 25 and be among bloggers who I respect and read.

Congrats Lewis and congrats Valeria. You two are already top with so many and now you get to pop some bubbly and celebrate ;-).
And thanks to all you fine marketers who teach me so much every single day. I honestly wonder how I got along all these years without your smarts and support.
- At 11:39 AM, Valeria Maltoni said...
This was actually my second time ;-) Both saw my debut at #23. Maybe I should play the number. As good as the first one.
Especially good to see Lewis make the list. Now we're talking!
- At 11:46 AM, Valeria Maltoni said...
One more to add -- together, we all contribute to the prominence of the Daily Fix under the expert hand of Ann Handley.
That's something to be proud of.

Amen Valeria, 13 of the Top 25 Marketing Blogs feature bloggers that also write for Daily Fix. And that's not including DF itself.

I'm seeing massive exodus of links that came from the week after Christmas when I had time to spend on the internet, blogging and commenting... I also think that's when the Z list and the 2000 bloggers memes were really hot! Will be interesting to see the effect that 6 months later has to the ranking of Branding & Marketing in the coming weeks.
Again, thanks for all your efforts. What do you attribute your +94 links this week to? That's a BIG jump!

"What do you attribute your +94 links this week to? That's a BIG jump!"
I think it's a Technorati hiccup. I unexpectedly lost 80 links last week, and I think this was TRati just adding them back, plus a few more I picked up in that time.

Congrats to Valeria and Lewis ... it is great to see them both on the list!
