The Top 100 Most Socially-Shared Leadership Blogs of 2013

The Top 100 Most Socially-Shared Leadership Blogs of 2013

2012 Results

The Research

Last year we compiled a list of the Top 30 Socially-Shared Leadership Blogs. This year we decided to make it a Top 100 list. We started out with our list of candidates from last year and added to it many other leadership blogs that we found as well as blogs that others had submitted to us for review. The starting list size was 225 Leadership blogs.

From there we reviewed each blog, one by one, to confirm that it was relevant to business leadership. Wanting to focus on leadership in general, we filtered out any sites that didn’t meet this criteria. This process narrowed the list down to 165 blogs.

The Data

We then compiled a list of every blog post each blog published from January 1, 2013 through November 30, 2013. With this list of blog post URLs we ran them through a tool to help us get all of the social shares data for each post. The tool we used was Social Tally. The social shares data were pulled on December 10th. Each blog post has it’s own social share count. We then summed up all the social shares across all blog posts for each blog. The total social shares is what determined the Top 100. You can see the results below.
