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). If you see this; (LW - UR), it means the blog wasn't ranked last week.
Best week for the Top 25 in months as 18 blogs were up, with only 5 blogs down (including this one). Search Engine Guide had a big move and I assume a 'Technorati-correction' was at least partially responsible for The Engaging Brand pole-vaulting up to #8 by adding 312 links to its total. It will be interesting to see if the Top 25's improvement is the start of a trend, or a one-week blip.
A lone new entry as Chaos Scenario debuts at #25
Next update is next Wednesday.

I'm so very happy that Chaos Scenario is on the list (way to go Cam & Co.!).
Thanks for doing this every week, Mack. You are a prince.

Dumb question: Is there a definition of a Marketing Blog somewhere, so we know what we're looking at? I see quite a sea of stuff here, and I wouldn't necessarily lump them all together, but you have, so I'm curious how/why you're doing so.
Thanks for listening.

Phil in general I look for blogs that cover traditional marketing and branding topics as well as social media/networking/sites. I tend not to include blogs that focus on SEO, SEM, link-farming/baiting, etc. There's some judgment calls, for example I include Search Engine Guide, but they feature a ton of great social media articles. I also prefer to only include blogs that allow comments, but include Seth's Blog since he has solid content.

Thanks for explaining Mack. I appreciate it very much. I just thought I'd ask. Do you have an about this on your blog somewhere? Besides your articles, it's the coolest thing on your blog :)
