First, an explanation. You now see that we have the blog name, then the number of links that blog has. The next number you see, (in parentheses) is how many links the blog gained or lost since last week. The final stat, the LW number, is where the blog ranked in last week's Top 25. Again with Technorati, higher number is better, since we are ranking the countdown based on number of links.
Now that the FAQ is out of the way, notice that Seth leapfrogged Creating Passionate Users to regain the #1 spot. I'm sure there will be a flurry of incoming links when/if Kathy ever posts again, but Seth could build a comfortable lead if that doesn't happen soon. Also interesting is that 23 of the 25 blogs saw their link counts increase. I think this will pretty much be the norm every week. And there weren't any really huge moves up or down. Converstations and Drew's Marketing Minute had big weeks, as did Duct Tape Marketing, which rejoined the Top 10.
No new blogs this week, but Marketing Nirvana and Biz Solutions Plus just missed the cut.
Next update is next Wednesday.
The Viral Garden, Marketing, Top 25 Marketing Blogs
In many ways, rankings self-perpetuate themselves, as the third-party marketing and buzz created ensure higher rankings. It is one of the pitfalls of placing too much importance on lists, as they serve to market those who first appear on them, creating a somewhat false picture.
Not to demean anyone on the lists: They are there because they earned it. My point is that they may stay there because they now are there.
It's kind of like when a new coffee shop opens next to Starbucks. The name recognition of the former gives the latter little room to grow.
Lewis I hear what you are saying, but IMO if someone on the Top 25 isn't producing good content, then they won't stay. IOW they can't 'survive' on just links from being on the Top 25 list.
While you might have changed a while ago - you know me, better late than never - I dig the new look Mack
