Top 50 Public Relations Blogs

share your story in wood typeGuest post by manager of electronic media Beth Blanchard and supervisor of Internet media Stone Hansard.

Brands and public relations firms may be diverting more of their budgets to content marketing these days (indeed, Cision recently launched its own Content Marketing Suite), but there’s still plenty of clout in PR’s bread and butter, earned media. While similar to last year’s Top 50 PR & Marketing Blogs, this year we zero in on blogs rooted in traditional PR industry issues, from best practices and ethics to emerging trends and industry news. The list is ranked by user views per month and inbound links, using data from Cision’s media database. Take a look, these are the blogs that have earned it.

    Spin Sucks is great, but so is Ronn Torossian blog. Was Odwyers removed on purpose? There is no doubt Edelman deserved number 1. Great list.

    Basically i am really confused about these things that people write about there personal relations and mostly bloggers think that viewers like to read these sort of Blogs but in actual that’s not the same!
