The Top 25 Marketing & Social Media Blogs are ranked according to the number of subscribers, according to FeedBurner. The number you see after the blog name is how many subscribers accessed the blog's feed, according to FeedBurner. FeedBurner (and I had to look it up to make sure) tracks the number of times your blog's feed is accessed, and matches it against the IP address of the computer making the request, to approximate the number of subscribers that access your feed, and report this as the number used in the Top 25. After that number is a positive or negative number, and this represents how many readers 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.
Fourteen blogs up this week with 7 down. Compared to last week's 13 up and 8 down, that's a good sign. Also strength at the top, as only one blog in the Top 10 was down. It seems that the Top 8 positions are pretty much locked down for the near future, but #9-15 could see plenty of shuffling in the coming weeks.
Jaffe Juice cannonballs back into the Top 25 this week at #8, making Joseph the lone new entry. Shotgun Marketing, Biz Solutions Plus and Every Dot Connects just missed the cut. Remember if you want to have your blog be considered for inclusion in the Top 25, make sure you add the Feedburner feed count chicklet to your blog.
BTW posting here will be very lax the rest of this week, and next week. I'm knee-deep in preparing for SBMU, so that and client work is making Mack a very busy boy right now. But I will get back in the swing when I get back from SBMU, which of course will be amazing, and I hope I can meet some of you there!
Next update is next Wednesday.
