Monitoring the Social State of Home, Tile & Design

Social Flooring Index: Flooring Blogs November 2011

Posted by Christine B. Whittemore on Sun, Nov 06, 2011

This is a 26 minute read.

Social Flooring IndexI've gotten several inquiries in the past few days asking when the Social Flooring Index would next be updated. Great news! Here it is for November 2011.

[The last update was released in April 2011. See Social Flooring Index - April 2011 for links and more information. In case you are new to the Social Flooring Index, it monitors the social state of the flooring industry.]

The November Social Flooring Index includes 190 blogs - a good increase over the 168 included in April 2011. In addition to adding approximately 50 blogs, I removed inactive ones [~10 to 15]. I am actively searching for flooring related blogs and add them to my online flooring community database as I come across good candidates. I welcome your suggestions!

I compile the ranking using eCairn Conversation™, a social media monitoring, analysis and targeting platform, to map out the online flooring community, identify influencers and conversations, and monitor results. The ranking is based on relevance within the community [a function of traffic data, interaction with the community, followers and relevance to flooring].

New additions to the Social Flooring Index tend to appear toward the bottom of the ranking - unless they've been particularly active interacting with other blogs in the online flooring community. Example: Bathroom Blogfest 2012.

Over the next few days, I will address - as I did for the April 2011 update - how well connected this online community is, observations about geography and social networks, and the nature of the conversations taking place.

The table below details all 190 blogs included in this latest Social Flooring Index. Going forward, I will limit the listing to the first 150 blogs.

Please let me know of any questions.

By the way, congratulations to all those whose blogs are listed here! It is exciting to witness increased commitment to social media marketing in flooring.
