Top 100 Analyst Blogs from Technobabble
Posted on July 29th 2008
I recently came across this list through Jason English at iTKO of the Top 100 analyst blogs from Technobabble. The author comments many analyst companies are unsure whether to give away their IP in this format. But he writes, “nevertheless, some people and striving ahead in this field as their readership soars and the number of people linking to their blogs increases.” This list of the top 100 analyst blogs was determined by “PageRank, subscribers, recent inbound links, frequency and focus of posts as well as the number of comments.”
Charlene Li was one of the first analyst to start a blog and she is number 4 on the list which is topped by another Forrester analyst, Jeremiah Owyang. I praised Charlene at the time and think that any analyst that blogs is making a smart decision. I believe that you have to give a little to gain credibility. I did not do an exact count but I have about a dozen of them on my list of interesting blogs. I will not repeat it here as you can find them on Technobabble. It is a good list.
Tomorrow, I will provide my list of the top twenty web 2.0 blogs by Technorati ratings, blog reactions and Google inbound links. I collected this list a few months ago. None of the analyst blogs are in my top twenty web 2.0 bloggers (by the numbers). Jeremiah is the closest at number 22.
