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.
Nice bounceback week as every blog gained subscribers. Blogs #11-15 and #20-24 are getting very competitive, and it's always interesting to see the joustling back and forth. Another interesting point is that I saw some bloggers question whether Chris Brogan would lose blog subscribers as a result of the controversy over his sponsored KMart post at Dad-o-matic. Given that his blog saw an almost 10% gain in subscribers, it doesn't seem to be hurting his numbers, and the solid gain could indicate that he instead picked up some new readers as a result of the added attention over this issue.
Search Engine Guide 'fell' out of the Top 25, but I'm pretty sure that was due to a FeedBurner hiccup (unless SEG suddenly lost 13K subscribers). Unfortunately, FB has been screwier recently, and that's resulted in a few blogs seeing their numbers unexpectedly dip.
Brand Autopsy recently added the FB count chicklet to its sidebar, and thusly rejoins the Top 25 at #7. Movie Marketing Madness and Customers Rock! 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.
Next update is next Wednesday.
