On the 5th of every month, Wikio.com publishes its updated ranking of blogs, in various categories, including business blogs.\u00a0 This month they gave us a sneak peek at the new rankings for the Business Blog category. For blog rankings, Wikio takes into account the number of tweets and the weight and number of other sites linking to the blogs,\u00a0 among other things.\u00a0 As a result,\u00a0Wikio generates an up-to-date blog\u00a0ranking and the Wikio Blog Ranking makes it a place to find blogs to scope out. Thanks to you, dear readers, we were delighted to see that Small Business Trends experienced a nice leap forward in the Wikio Rankings for business blogs and now stands in the top 15 business blogs. It is an honor to be in the company of sites like GigaOm, Techdirt, Freakonomics, BusinessInsider War Room and others.

While you're at it, you might also want to explore the rest of Wikio.\u00a0 From the name it sounds like it might have started out life as a wiki site -- but it's not really a wiki site.\u00a0 And it's more than just a blog ranking service. The main focus of the site is a news search engine that aggregates news articles and original interesting blog posts. In other words, Wikio is a place to find the latest news.\u00a0 Wikio gets its information from various sources such as news pages, blogs, consumer websites, merchant pages and Wikio members.\u00a0 So you'll find more varied news sources at Wikio.com than you might find in something like Google News, which tends to focus on information culled from the major media outlets and press release services.
