To put content marketing into perspective, you might want to revisit my post about Joe Pulizzi on Content Marketing. As Joe says, "we are content marketing publishers."
I proudly share with you the list of Top 42 Content Marketing Blogs and encourage you to visit each. First, in case you have specific questions about the Junta42 Top 42 Content Marketing Blogs, here is more information.
What is the Junta42 Top 42 Content Marketing Blog List?Here's the official description: "The Junta42 Top 42 Content Marketing Blogs list highlights the best bloggers on the web discussing content marketing. Each blog on the list has been rated by our expert staff in terms of content strength, depth, regularity and, to a very small extent, popularity."
How does Junta42 calculate the Junta42 Top 42?As Junta42 explains, "Content marketing is all about the creation of great, story-form content (delivered through any channel) that ultimately influences someone to buy your product, take an action, or believe in a cause."
Junta42 started tracking content marketing related blogs in 2007 with an initial 81 blogs. This list has definitely grown! For this latest ranking, Junta42 began with a list of over 350 blogs through nominations and known content marketing-related blogs and then rated each on the following factors, with a bias toward substance and relationship to content marketing:
1. The number of posts in last quarter that pertained to a content marketing topic.
2. Substantiveness of Posts.
3. Google PageRank. (All blogs were checked on the same day.)
4. Previous Ranking.
