Top Market Research Blogs of 2011 – The 10 Finalists
It’s time to see what I predict will be the top 10 market research blogs for 2011!
As you may have guessed, I’ve used web rankings and analytics to determine who I think will be the top 10 market research blogs of 2011. I’ve decided on 4 main measures to predict the future success of these blogs in the market research community; Google PageRank, Alexa Rank, Yahoo Backlinks, and a custom measure of my own that I’ve decided to call “Focused Relevance”.
I hope you find this brief analysis (mostly charts and diagrams) as interesting as I did!
NOTE: Web traffic sample sizes are not shown or used in this analysis as they are not an accurate measurement when used alone to predict future website behavior. All measurements are from the main page of each blog. All measurements were taken on December 15, 2010.
Key findings of this research:

2. Alexa Rank (more info)
|NielsonWire, comScore Voices, Cvent Survey, The Forrester Blog, QuestionPro Blog, SurveyGizmo Blog, and Voice of Vovici Blog all have notable web rankings with Alexa.|

4. Focused Relevance (based on the number of relevant market research mentions by the density of those mentions when compared to all content on the blog)
|Quirk’s Blog, Conversition Blog, Zebra Research, GreenBook Market Research Blog, and Tom H.C. Anderson have the most relevant and focused blog content.|
So what does all this mean?! Well, I knew you would be wondering that, so of course I took the time to look at all of these findings to develop a simple list of the blogs that I predict will be the top 10 market research blogs in 2011:
