Adage Power 150

The Adage Power 150 is a collection of the top blogs in the social media, PR and marketing space. What started off as a ramshackle group of 150 blogs (hence the name) has now expanded to include 1038, and features some of the most well known bloggers in this space.

To get onto the list, you have to pass certain criteria, including having a high enough Alexa ranking, having loads of inbound links etc – this was made all the more tricky when a PostRank score was thrown into the pre-evaluation mix, raising the minimum objective point total 50, which until a few months ago was actually 20.

I’ve applied twice and i’m not quite there yet.. here’s how I scored on the two occassions I submitted this blog:

November 2008

Yahoo InLinks (1 to 30): 1
Technorati Ranking (1 to 20): 1
Technorati Authority (1 to 20): 1
Technorati InLinks (1 to 20): 1
Alexa Points (1 to 15): 1
Bloglines Subscribers (1 to 10): 1
Google PageRank (0 to 10): 0
Collective Intellect (0 to 10): 0
TOTAL: 6

March 2009

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
TOTAL: 11

And here’s my most recent (last week) entry:

June 2009

PostRank (1 to 50): 7
Yahoo InLinks (1 to 20): 1
Technorati Authority (1 to 10): 5
Technorati InLinks (1 to 10): 7
Alexa Points (1 to 15): 8
Bloglines Subscribers (1 to 10): 1
Google PageRank (0 to 10): 3
Collective Intellect (0 to 10): 0
TOTAL: 32

As you can see, that’s quite a jump between now and March, and under the old points system of needing 20, i’d be in. Alas (!) now the rules have changed a bit, i’m 18 points away from getting on that list, rather than being 12 over!

I have no reason to want to be Included, other than the ability to compare this blog with others at a glance; I don’t fancy collating all their stats thanks very much!

This is not for self-gratification, it’s purely to see where I am so I can work on ways to make this better for readers (oh hai) and to try and build a community, no matter how small or large, around it.
