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.

Happy New Year! The Top 25 took a few weeks off, and now is back to start 2009 with 3 weeks of results. Only 4 blogs were down, and that includes Conversation Agent, which was obviously a FB glitch. Being Peter Kim and Social Media Explorer both showed big gains and they could be making runs at the Top 10 in a few weeks if they keep growing at current rates.

Search Engine Guide re-entered the Top 25 after a FeedBurner hiccup knocked them out last time. Spare Change 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.

Mack, this is an excellent example of how semantics can drive expectations and results. I completely agree with this insight. It is our job to appropriately frame the medium so that results are aligned with expectations. Great post Mack!
