AdAge Unveils “Power 150″ Marketing Blogs

Posted By Robert Gorell On August 7, 2007 @ 4:55 pm In Blog Buzz,Blogs | 5 Comments

The A(n)dAge list [1]Today, AdvertisingAge unveiled its “Power 150″ list of top media and marketing blogs [1]. Originally developed by Todd And (born Todd Andrlik), the list has become a hot topic among marketers since And announced [2] his partnership with AdAge last month.

At the moment, GrokDotCom weighs in at #45 on the list, which uses a point system to tally a blog’s Technorati rank, Google PageRank, Bloglines subscribers, and Todd And’s personal 1-15 score (or “Todd Points”). And’s score, an admittedly subjective [3] one, promises to value “frequent, relevant, creative [4] and high-quality content” and that the “use of audio [5], video [6] and graphics is also heavily weighted in the Todd Points.”

Currently, we’re scoring about a “C” on Todd Points (read: 12 out of 15), but we’re not sure how often Todd reads Grok, whether he uses Blog Buzz [7] to follow top marketing stories, or if he listens to our daily podcast [8] at WebmasterRadio.fm. Still, if our recent Technorati score is any indication, we’re sure to climb the charts [9]. ;)


Any way you slice it, #45′s not bad for a blog that emerged from a newsletter in February of 2007.

Thanks for reading, everyone. You grok [10]!
