What's the methodology, here? Who are the experts creating the ranking?

Not to burst your bubble, but these listings are proliferating...most of them are just ways to gain link-backs.

Hi Pharmagossip and Chris,

I just saw this posting and the comments here. I am with the Strategist News team.

Let me introduce our website and this ranking. We got together as a group of business professionals (mostly strategy consultants, i-bankers and brand managers), and decided to establish a website to share good business writing that we all enjoy.

We wanted to start that with building a ranking of blogs that we enjoy reading the most.

Pharmagossip made our cut, because a lot of our members enjoy it. There really is no other methodology than that - we tried to make that clear in our original posting on our website.

However, if I might add my personal point of view - I feel that there are not many high quality business blogs out there. Many so-called business blogs really have nothing to do about business and aren't relevant to business professionals.

Similarly, there aren't many good rankings of business blogs. (Try googling, I think you will agree with me). So even though we are hoping for some backlinks with this list, we were hoping to fill a real need.

We are looking to get any feedback we can get and we hope to come up with a better ranking in the new year. You can reach me at

Hope to keep in touch.
