Top 150 Social Media Marketing Blogs – Apr 09

Here is the new ranking as of April 20th.

Few observations on the trends:

  • The top of the list is very stable with J Owyang still leading the pack.
  • Clay Shirky made the most significant gain (+99), mainly thanks to his brilliant post on the future of newspapers (888 comments and counting !). It’s amazing that this article does not comply to best practices in blogging etc:  it’s too long, has no images nor video… but it’s a such a great article with deep content. Clay only posts once a month but it’s always brillant !
  • “Search” blogs seem to be on the rise in the social media landscape (see lines 51, 66, 96).

Any feedback on the relevance of this list is warmly welcome as an opportunity to progress:  eCairn team.

And should you need to develop social media marketing services (branding,  intelligence, research, outreach, advertising, social media optimization) where relevance is key, we’re always happy to do an 1/2 hour free  demo !
