The Top 100 Most Socially-Shared Leadership Blogs of 2014

Top Leadership Blogs 2014

The Research

2013 Results
2012 Results

Last year we compiled a list of The Top 100 Most Socially-Shared Leadership Blogs of 2013. We took our list of candidates from 2013 and added other blogs that we came across or that others submitted to us throughout the year.

Our method from there was to review each blog to make sure each candidate blog was/is relevant to business leadership. We filtered out any blogs that didn’t meet this criteria. This process narrowed the list down to 196 blogs.

The Data

We then did the tedious job of compiling a spread sheet with each blog and its posts published from January 1, 2014 through December 31, 2014. With this list of blog post URLs we used a tool to help us get all of the social shares data for each post. Each blog post has it’s own social share count, so we added up all the social shares across each blog’s posts and came up with a total social-share count. The total social shares is what determined the Top 100. You can see the results below.
