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.
As you've probably noticed, the Top 25 hasn't been updated in a few weeks. I think for the time being, I am going to switch from a weekly update, to just updating the Top 25 once a month. So since it's been a few weeks since I updated the list, there's plenty of moves. Chris Brogan finally caught and moved ahead of Jeremiah Owyang to take over the #4 spot. Logic+Emotion, Drew's Marketing Minute, Conversation Agent and Social Media Explorer all added big moves.
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 month.

Mack ... it's not that I didn't enjoy playing by posting FeedBurner stats, it's just in the revamping of the Brand Autopsy blog, Feedburner stats were cut out. Thus, I bid adieu do being listed. Have fun y'all.

No worries John, if you add the chicklet back, please email me and I'll put Brand Autopsy back on the list!
BTW like the new look!
