Blog Ranking: Leadership top 20

Hi everybody. I have been geeking around today and created a formula for blog rankings in order to make a top list of leadership blogs. This is just a test so far and I have included 20 randomly selected blogs. I am not going to reveal the formula, but it includes Alexa Ranking, Google PR, Search results, and presence in social media. These selected rankings make foundation for a calculation and are fact based on numbers easily found on the net. I have included 2 more criterias as well, these are a personal opinion about design and quality of the blog. Usability is a factor, easy to follow, easy to read. And do I think the content is great. The personal factors do not affect as much as the stone hard facts but I wanted it in there. I am therefore honored to introduce a top 20 test result.

I want to make a top 100 before September. I just need to search and register into my database. If you have a blog please comment and I will include it. Enjoy and congratulations to Gretchen Rubin for taking the lead.

I almost forgot: As I add new blogs, the results may change as there is an internal link that might change scores for already registered blogs.
