Adage Power 150

The Adage Power 150 is a collection of the best advertising, marketing, SEO and PR blogs worldwide, in one place. The list is updated regularly and it is widely seen as an industry bible for top blogs.

As of this morning the top ten were:

1. Seth’s Blog
2. Search Engine Land
3. Chris Brogan
4. Micro Persuasion
5. Search Engine Journal
6. Problogger
7. I Believe in Advertising
8. Ads of the world
10.SEOMoz Blog

So, how do you actually go about getting onto the list?

Above the list there is a submit your blog button. Click on that and you will be taken through to a page where you get to fill in various details including your name, the name of your blog and it’s URL.

However, before you get excited, there are minimum requirements for getting your blog listed. You must hit a 20 point minimum score before you’ll be considered. This is worked out through how your blog is ranked on a series of different services. The scores below are how I fared.

Yahoo InLinks (1 to 30): N/A
Technorati Ranking (1 to 20): 2
Technorati Authority (1 to 20): 1
Technorati InLinks (1 to 20): 1
Alexa Points (1 to 15): 5
Bloglines Subscribers (1 to 10): 1
Google PageRank (0 to 10): 0
Collective Intellect (0 to 10): 0

Not bad for a 6 month old blog, but not good enough to get on the list. You can see more information about the Adage minimum requirements here.

It’s a great way for you to see just where your blog stands in the grand scheme of things. it’s demonstrated to me that I need to try and get some Yahoo Inlinks and build my bloglines subscriber base. Why have I picked these two out of all of the options? Because these are two rankings which I think can be affected more easily than the others.

Of course, being in the 150 isn’t the e all and end all, it’d be nice though!
