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.

I think it's a bit interesting that three of the Top 10 blogs are down this week. Or could be nothing, but usually the Top 10 is stronger than the rest of the Top 25. Past the Top 10, three other blogs were down, but Jaffe Juice is obviously a Feedburner glitch. In fact that's why I didn't do the Top 25 last week, because about half the blogs' had totally wacky sub counts, I'm assuming due to bloggers moving their FB account to Google.

Spare Change re-enters the Top 25 at #25. 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. And if you redesign your blog, make sure to keep the FB chicklet on there, or I can't track you for the Top 25.




Next update is next Wednesday.

Hey Mack, hope all is well. I was wondering if you would consider my Personal Branding Blog on your list in the near future.

Thanks
