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.
Another solid week for the Top 25, with 22 of the 25 blogs gaining subscribers last week. The Top 10 was particularly impressive, with 9 blogs gaining, and those 9 all gaining more than 50 subscribers. Past the Top 10, Conversation Agent, Social Media Explorer, and Greg Verdino's Blog all had strong moves upward, with SME's move pushing it into the Top 20.
Servant of Chaos and Customers Rock! just missed the cut this week. 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.

Do these kinds of list serve much purpose? Does a competitive nature serve the blogosphere well? I'm just asking

Allan, these lists do serve a purpose - a very important one in my opinion. It is a resource for marketing and social media blogs that some may not be aware of otherwise. You may agree or disagree with the order of the list, but it subjective way to discover great content that you may not find via the top listings in the search engines.

Ranking lists aka Top of the Charts sound good indeed. Would we go in for Top Ranking ATP STYLE too?? Letz see who the Federer of Blogging is gonna be, with big moneys at stake?.
The fear is that these huge 'readerships" or follower lists would make this mode of communication equivalent to traditional mainline media.
I'm blogging in from India.
Wonder why the Land of a Billion does not feature any on the Top 25?
