A reminder that the Top 25 Marketing & Social Media 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.
Slightly better week for the Top 25 with 5 blogs up, and two of them in the Top 5. Otherwise it was another downer. I'm beginning to wonder if this is part of a larger trend of people not posting to their blogs as much, and as a result traffic and links are falling? I know that Twitter alone is cutting into the number of blog posts I write each week. How are the rest of you faring? This is another reason why I think we all as individuals (especially those using our blogs as personal branding tools), need to spread the wealth in the social media space, and go where the people are. Agree? Disagree?
Otherwise there are no new blogs this week. Next update is next Wednesday.

The number of comments are definitely falling, as discussions are rerouted elsewhere, or at least not contained to blogs themselves.

Do you think they are falling on Daily Fix? I still see many posts that have well over 10 comments and some over 20 and 30.
I'm not sure, they might be down here, but I don't think it's by too much if they are. But I am definitely posting less than I used to. I Blame Twitter. ;)

I lost a bunch of links this past week. My posts are still very regular - daily - and getting better over time. It might be me thinking that, though, as I am seeing less comments overall ;-)
From feedback I receive otherwise, I know many are using my material in their work, so that's what really matters, and me growing together with my readers.

What we really need is a plug-in that works like a trackback for Twitter/Plurk conversations. Is this something CoComment can do?
We are mostly, simply shifting our conversation to somewhere more immediate.
