NOTE TO READERS: When this project lost substantial funding at the end of 2018, I lost the ability to continue publishing criteria-driven news story reviews and PR news release reviews - once the bread-and-butter of the site going back to 2006. The 3,200 archived reviews, while still educational, are getting old and difficult for me to technically maintain on the back end of the website. So I am announcing that I plan to remove these reviews from the site by April 1, 2021. The blog and the toolkit - two of the most popular features on the site - will remain. If you wish to peruse the reviews before they disappear, please do so by the end of March 2021. After that date you may still be able to access them via the Internet Archive Wayback Machine -

Well, it was ranked #9 by Wikio when this post first appeared.
Now, however, the logo reflects whatever the current ranking is.

Wikio’s ranking of this blog is highly suspicious. I say that now that the ranking has dropped. Maybe it was suspicious when the ranking was high.
But I do know that the Wikio site points to an old, dead, defunct blog of mine. And that’s what they’re actually ranking.
I’ve written them to stop ranking a dead blog and to add the new URL and the new name but I’ve received no response.
So my advice: take these rankings with a grain of salt – in good times or in bad – high rankings or low.
