is a blog I bumped into today by a fella named Mack Collier. His Technorati profile describes it as "The new blog from 'the guy at Beyond Madison Avenue' where I ramble on about marketing, music, life, branding, whatever catches my eye that day."
What brought me there was the list he has developed & updates regularly of the Top 25 Marketing Blogs
. An admirable goal, and one he has achieved quite adequately. The only caveat I have with the whole endevour is that he uses each blog's Alexa ranking to order the list. I'm not a big fan of Alexa and their questionable spyware-like approach to life on the web. That said, you need someway of ranking these sites, I guess.
Check 'em out, and let me know which ones strike your fancy.
Mack Collier of Viral Garden has developed a list of the world's Top 25 Marketing Blogs based on each blog's Alexa ranking. Mr. Collier's goal was to create an "AP Top 25" for the global marketing community, a very smart move indeed: Now marketers everywhere will either check Mr. Collier's weekly rankings to see what everyone else is reading, or bust their tails to make the list -- promoting it when they do. Either way, there's plenty of PR and link candy to be accrued by Viral Garden.
According to Mr. Collier, "The rankings are according to Alexa, and if I think your blog focuses mainly on marketing, or marketing is at least half the content, then I added you (and the content couldn't be all news-related, like Marketing Vox). Judgment calls had to be made, like including Creating Passionate Users and What's Next, and not including Micro Persuasion and AdRants."
