The Top 25 Marketing & Social Media Blogs are ranked by 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.
Apparently Valeria was slightly pissed off at FB for under-reporting her subscriber numbers last week, as Conversation Agent bounces back to gain over 1,700 subscribers, and vaults her blog up to #12. Not to be out-done, Social Media Explorer and Being Peter Kim both padded their totals and have all but caught the pack in front of them. I am assuming that it's John Jantsch's turn in the FB doghouse this week, as Duct Tape Marketing mysteriously shed half its subscribers.
No new blogs this week, and 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.

Yeah, Feedburner is having issues counting subscribers from BlogRovR so our stats are actually way down too.

Great list and reminds me of all the blogs I should be reading! FWIW, I've got over 3,500 readers via Feedburner. Click my name and you'll see the chicklet on my blog.

Debbie if you'll add that FB chicklet to your blog's homepage, I can add you to the Top 25. Thanks!

Wow... this is an awesome list. I'm going to be sure to check out all of them. I'll also definitely add that Feedburner chicklet. You have some great stuff here.
