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.
A few blogs, such as Chris Brogan's, Influential Marketing Blog, Techno Marketer, and The Social Media Marketing Blog had bigger than normal drops, which were probably just FB glitches. Otherwise, it was a fairly decent week for the Top 25, with 13 blogs up, 9 down (including the 3 big droppers). Web Strategy by Jeremiah and Being Peter Kim are the new entries this week, with Techno Marketer and Shotgun Marketing Blog falling out. BTW I had to get nostalgic for a minute when I realized that Being Peter Kim entering the Top 25 means that four of the five original members of the Z-List have now made the countdown. Does my bloggin' heart good!
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.
Next update is next Wednesday.

Yes, the Z-List still shines! Thanks for having me as one of the original members; it made a huge difference to my blog. :)

Thanks for the add, Mack. I learned a lot from the Z-list and I'm still learning a lot about blogging daily!

Thanks Becky, you rock yourself!
Pete I had to chuckle, I went to your blog this morning to get your updated FB count for the Top 25, and noticed your newest post was about the ego trap and influencer lists ;)
