Blogs and the Law of the Essential Few

By Bryan Eisenberg
May 15th, 2007

Imagine an alternate universe. . .where legislation is passed, taxing you on every blog or feed you read above three (you know, this doesn’t seem so far-fetched, actually*). If you could choose only three blogs, so that you could get the breadth and depth of knowledge you need every day, which would they be?

As you know, we’re monitoring over 3,000 interactive marketing blogs now–hence the Blog Buzz link on our site–and want to be sure we have the ones that matter to our readers. Our algorithm will be going through some tweaking before the end of the month, and we want to make sure the essential few that our audience care about are valued more than the other 3,000+ blogs.

Which 3 blogs would make up your essential few?

  1. Hmm. Tough question. I know how awful it is to place fourth (heck, even the bronze is out of reach then) so let me restrict myself even further by limiting it to just one blog(anyone can imagine herself/himself receiving silver and bronze then). I think I would have to keep Avinash’s blog in that scenario.

  2. Hmmm… Very difficult indeed. I would have to say The Grok, Marketing Pilgrim and why not some Perez Hilton as a little guilty pleasure

  3. very tough question, i doubt i could chose just 3

  4. Why not run all the sites through and see which one is the most effective from a marketing perspective?

    For example, GrokDotCom gets a website grade of 94 (which means it is more effective than 94% of the tens of thousands of other websites graded).
