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.

Pretty flat week for the Top 25, with 10 blogs up, 12 down. Chris Brogan's blog, along with Influential Marketing and Damn! I Wish..., all had big weeks.

In an interesting twist, the folks at AideRSS have tried to measure the level of 'engagement' for the Top 25 Marketing & Social Media blogs. I asked Melanie Baker, AideRSS's community manager for a breakdown of what they look at. Melanie explained that they look at '5 Cs'; Creating, Critiquing, Chatting, Collecting and Clicking. She added that with creating, they believe if a blog post inspires someone to create their own content (such as another blog post), that that represents the highest level of engagement. Comments would fall under the 'critiquing' section and continue down to clicking, which doesn't require much interaction or engagement. You can see the results here.

No new blogs this week. Next update is next Wednesday.





Next update is next Wednesday.

Hi Mack. I wonder if you would consider including my blog in your list. I'm a marketing and strategy head for a big UK media owner and blog as Only Dead Fish about all things marketing, media and social media. My Technorati ranking is currently 555. Many thanks.
