Meghan Casserly and Jenna Goudreau of Forbes did a great job compiling their view of the Top 100 Websites for Women, however, this is simply a list. What about organizing these sites by their level of online influence? This directly relates to Paul Dyer’s recent call to action to brand managers, marketers, and communicators to organize their media lists on rank – who influences your brand the most?
We have taken Forbes’ list of the top websites for women and ranked the top 25 by level of influence online.
Mentioned previously in Sally Bage’s Top 10 Health Stories of 2009 story, WCG developed a simple algorithm to zero in on the top websites for women. The ranking, highlighted below, considers the total reach of the blog – taking into consideration things like how many other sites are linking to it and how many people are visiting it.
*Index: the measure that defines the relative impact of each article when compared with all of the articles collected from 2009; This is the final output from the algorithm described above.
Note: Because www.shine.yahoo.com is a combination of many blogs, it was not included in this list.
