Internet Marketing Blogs Ranked By Various Metrics

by Donna Fontenot November 11th, 2008 

Winning The Web has created a list of over 200 Internet Marketing and SEO/SEM blogs with each being ranked by using a variety of metrics. Site categories include affiliate marketing, blogging, copywriting, Internet marketing, link building, make money online, SEO / SEM, and social media.

The metrics used to rank the blogs include:

  • Feedburner RSS Subscribers
  • Alexa Rank
  • Compete Rank
  • Technorati Rank
  • Google PageRank
  • Yahoo Inbound Links
  • StumbleUpon Reviews
  • Votes
  • Links from Winning the Web
  • User Votes

The rankings will change (looks like weekly) based on the changes in the metrics. If this was nothing more than a simple list of ranked blogs, I'm not sure how news-worthy it would be, although it would still be worth checking out. But there's an extra feature that I'm looking forward to. You can subscribe to a newsletter that will get sent weekly and which will show an analysis of the top movers on the list. I'm not sure what that analysis will look like, but I'm interested to see it. Why? Because I think I could learn a few things about analyzing data such as this. I've got some thoughts about how I could use this type of data analysis, but I won't share them just yet. Anyway, I thought it was interesting enough to pass along, in case you wanted to check it out too.

Oh - SEO Scoop is currently ranked #28 (as evidenced by the badge below). Will be interesting to see how that changes over the coming weeks.

    If that's a 28… It says 6 on my side.

    I'm glad all of those metrics are used. Should give a pretty good idea of what's what when it comes to rankings.

  2. Tertius says:

    Now it says 27.

    That was weird, maybe a little glitch.

    Ah, the badge is dynamic and shows current number. Cool. Should've realized that. Just wasn't paying enough attention, I guess. :)

  4. Sorta off topic – was that a custom CakePHP app or an example of available plugin/module? Liked its 45n5'ish top 100 flavor.

  5. Congrats on the high ranking. Looks like the badge is showing your #27 right now.

    And I like how many metrics they are using because it gives a better indication of the overall value of each site to its users and readers.

  6. Your also in a 3-way tie for #152. I'm not surprised your ranked so high. Great job on saying consistent and maintaining high quality posts. 😀

    I like they way they organized the list. i also like the fact that they are relying on a variety of different metrics. While browsing the Internet i find only too often that a lot of well-established seo companies (and not) trust just a source or another. Having a lot of metrics is good because it gives you the real-whole of a website. This choice should also be adopeted by those companies which have to do with ads. For example text-link-ads just takes into account Alexa rank, which, as we all know, is not accutate AT ALL!

    Being very cautious with email, please update as to whether that's ALL they send.

    Hey Donna,
    Thanks for the plug! I'm still tweaking the algorithm so expect changes in ranking over the next week or so (hopefully improvements for you).

    As for the analysis, I'm still debating what I want to include but hopefully it'll be helpful insights for everyone!

    Thanks again.

    I am kind of wondering how they got the names on the list in the first place. I recognize most on the first page but after that they start to fall off. And most are into the social side of marketing….

    Not hating…just wondering how they built the list in the first place.
