The coolest guy on the planet must still be Seth Godin because his blog bounced back to the top of The Viral Gardens top 25 Marketing blogs.
Every few months I like to see what's happening on the traffic front for other marketing blogs.
In May Mack Collier decided to change how he rated the top 25 marketing blogs on his The Viral Gardens blog.
Instead of using Alexa rankings he's now changed to a, possibly easier to understand, rating of the number of links into a blog.
That's meant quite a few changes in the table, as you can see below. Quite a few blogs have dropped out and others have joined.
The new entries in our June 2007 dip into the Viral Gardens latest top 25 are shown in red.
There are 7 blogs in the top 25 which weren't there in March 2007 (shown as ??).

The following blogs dropped out between October 2006 and April 2007: HorsePigCow, Emergence Marketing, Brains on Fire, Marketallica,
When I last blogged about the top 25 marketing blogs I did wonder about combining a Technorati rating with the Alexa rating to see if the top 25 would change.
The only issue I have with using links is that you could see blogs encouraging more people to link into them to get into the top 25. Or maybe I've a few sour grapes!? Because I've only got a few links coming in and probably about 500 less than the lowest blog in the top 25.
