Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) July 26, 2006
Next Level Biz Tips Blog ranks #8 in the top 20 blogs with influential authority on the topic of "blog marketing" as reported in a recent analysis by Onalytica, a UK company that "identifies, measures and monitors who has influence on issues, markets and brands."
Denise Wakeman, author and owner of Next Level Biz Tips, says she was shocked at the announcement. "I come in ahead of some very big name blogs, such as Fast Company, Marketing Sherpa, and Gaping Void."
Next Level Biz Tips blog ( http://www.biztipsblog.com ) is about Internet marketing for professionals and small businesses and has been publishing continuously since September 2004. In that time, it has built up a loyal following of readers interested in learning how to grow their businesses using online tips and tools, such as blogs.
Onalytica explains that their ranking was done by counting influence more than popularity:
"When measuring influence we take one more variable into account: The influence of the endorser (linker)."
Denise also writes for AllBusiness.com at Your Project Partner (http://www.yourprojectpartner.com), which ranks #15 as an influential authority on "blog marketing."
This study shows that the measurement of influence combined with popularity has significant impact for small businesses and professionals who want to leverage the power of blogs for getting known and getting found on the Web.
"Blogs are truly powerful for people who want to be heard above the roar of big company PR and marketing, and this shows that influence and power can be in the hands of all professionals," concludes Wakeman.
Denise writes on seven different blogs and is a founding partner along with Patsi Krakoff, Psy. D., of The Blog Squad™.
