Content Marketing Today Hits #15 on the Junta42 Top Blogger List

Joe Pulizzi’s 8th Installment Reviews Record 353 Blogs to Select Content Marketing Thought Leaders

content marketing today--paris guide story lead Joe Pulizzi’s 8th Installment Reviews Record 353 Blogs to Select Content Marketing Thought Leaders

We are delighted to have earned another strong ranking among the content marketing blog elite. We are especially pleased because this is one tough crew of content marketing thought leaders.

The number of blogs reviewed by the Junta42 team has grown as dramatically as the move toward adoption of content marketing strategies among companies of all sizes.  They began in 2007 with just 81 blogs and now evaluate 353 which are chosen through nominations and known content marketing-related blogs.

How Content Marketing Blogs are Ranked.

    • The number of posts in last quarter that pertained to a content marketing topic. Those posting on 3 or more days per week received the highest number of points.
    • Substantiveness of Posts. Here we worked to weed out posts that fell short of adding value to the collective body of knowledge about content marketing. For example, blogs that simply linked to other blogs or articles without adding new information, perspectives or ideas to the commentary received lower scores than did blogs that consistently delivered unique ideas, thoughtful insights, deep coverage, rich media and the like – you know, high-value content – to the community.
    • Google PageRank. (All blogs were checked on the same day.)
