It’s no surprise that we dig what PostRank is doing with their analytics around blog engagement. They let blog publishers know how readers are interacting with blog content, from commenting to bookmarking to writing a blog post in response. This is valuable information for getting to know what your audience likes and can help you to create better content.
These kind of stats are right up our alley. In fact, we use a piece of their data to show our publishers what posts readers are especially enjoying. You can see for yourself by clicking on the ‘Readers’ tab within your Lijit stats…
So, when we heard that PostRank was coming out with a 2009 Best of Blog list, culled from the data they collect, we were excited. PostRank did all the hard work of analyzing over two billion engagement activities on twenty different social services to rank blogs in fourteen vertical categories, everything from art to religion to technology. And to keep the rankings fair, the PostRank team decided to award bloggers in three areas of accomplishment: Most Engagement, Most Influential and Biggest Movers & Shakers.
Imagine our pleasant surprise when we saw the number of Lijit publishers who were in the top spots. Nicely done folks!
