LinkedIn's 2nd PR hire. These are my thoughts on products, public relations, and startups.

Top 10 Corporate Blogs (Technorati Ranked)

Quick Update: In related news, Nicholas Carr from Rough Type blog, just wrote an article in Business Week on Lessons in Corporate Blogging, taking a page from Dell’s recent blog-launch. Nicholas is an unbiased expert in the field and I greatly value his professional insight. This article is a case in point.

What do 3 Search Engines, 2 Software manufacturers, 2 Online Media learning companies, the World’s largest automaker, a Management Consultancy, and a British Tailor on Saville Row — have in common?

Source: The New PR Wiki (conceptualized by Neville Hobson, which I discovered via Steve Rubel). Corporate Blog listings on the wiki currently maintained by Constantin Basturea. Thanks to Neville and Constantin for creating an invaluable resource for the blogosphere.

Also, a HUGE thanks to Jason Calacanis for the encouragement, to Eric Kintz for the inspiration and to my Viral Community for the support.

Methodology: I utilized the Corporate Blog listings on the NewPR Wiki and created a Google spreadsheet with the Top 100 Corporate Blogs. I then sorted them based on their Technorati rankings.

Request: If any of you are interested in volunteering to help maintain these lists (monthly), feel free to email me at vjmario@yahoo.com. This project consumed my whole week-end!

Also, watch-out for the Top 10 CEO Blogs (Technorati Powered) on Marketing Nirvāna, culled from the same source. Coming soon!

    Hi Easton,
    Thanks for dropping and for your constructive thoughts on how to improve further the Top 10 blog listings I recently started.

    My goal has been to provide the service of ranking the Top 10 corporate and CEO blogs (w/ the PRWiki as the source) per their current monthly status.

    It’d be great for the 2 of us to take this conversation further to discuss how better we can further add value to this process.

    Talk to you soon.

    I think the increase in corporate blogging is creating a greater sense of transparency between companies and their publics. People want to hear what the “big guys” say and there is no surprise that large corporations such as Google are seeing high success rates from their corporate blogging. People want to know how to be successful or be relevant, so consequently, they want to hear what the powerful are saying. I think this is a trend that will continue to draw people connected to the social media world. Influence could be even more heightened in these corporate big dogs if they play their cards right.

      @Cadence,

      It absolutely is. I also think it’s important to learn how to do it right. Besides having regular content, I think companies in the Top 10 know how to integrate content into the right distribution channels (including twitter). Will continue exploring these themes and sharing them on this blog.
