Experiments in Disconnect

I’m currently away from the office for a couple of weeks – primarily for a few meetings and speaking engagements in the USA. In an effort to get a few projects that have been sitting on my to-do and would-like-to lists completed, I am trying something I’ve never done before… .. disconnecting from the grid.

Top 50 Australian Marketing Blogs

Julian Cole over at Adspace Pioneers has published his second edition of the Top 50 Australian Marketing Blogs, which had also been included in the newly redesigned BandT Magazine(see pages 35-38).

And PreneurMarketing.com made the list on Julians’ site at 24, but 22 in the mag (Not sure how that works, but I’ll take it.)

The methodology for the Top 50 Marketing Blogs is rated in terms of how many people read the blog (Alexa Ranking 20%), how well it rates on Google (Google Page Rank 20%), how many people are linking to their content (Technorati 40%), and a subjective score of how relevant the content is to Australian marketing, which is rated by Julian Cole (Pioneer Rating 20%).

A BIG THANKS to Julian for the hard work and well done to all the bloggers who have been included in the Top 50 Marketing Blogs.
