What are we talking about? Part III.

A week ago I published the results of tag analysis of the blogs in the PR Friendly Index, and then looked at the frequencies of usage of those tags.

So, let’s now look at who is talking – or, at least, tagging – about what, exactly. Click the blog link to go to the blog, or the tag links to see what else is tagged with that on Technorati.

Please note that I’ve updated the tags for Don’t eat the shrimp and Online Marketing Blog. They seemed to have problems with their tags, and commented as such on the original post. So I’ve tagged them with a combination of what they say they are, complemented with what Google Adwords says. Meanwhile, I guess this isn’t a bad thing for them as they’re getting extra links via this explanation…! It also means the social network diagram and tag lists are a bit different, so I’ve republished them.

Also, please take a look at the original tagging post to see what data scrubbing I performed. In short, there were numerous examples where people had tagged posts ‘pr’, ‘public relations’, ‘publicrelations’, ‘public-relations’, ‘public_relations’, and so on – sometimes even on the same blog! In all these cases I standardised them to just ‘pr’. Same for many other tags, especially social media.

  1. One could say these are the blogs which really talk – or at least tag what they’re saying – about topics that are at the heart of the PR blogosphere.

  2. Interesting post Brendan. Looking at this post, I realize that my tags are mostly generic (i.e. socialmedia.) I should add some more specific tags to make it easier for people looking for specific sub topics. Thanks for triggering the insight.

  3. Thanks for the link Brendan. If anyone has a question about the “tax” tag I used it’s because I had just received a letter asking for me to pay taxes on property my business had bought last year. Didn’t I pay sales tax when I bought it?
