As you know, social share volume fluctuates daily, and rankings obviously will as well. Below are blogs we feel are valuable HR resources that deserve mention, or were very close achieving top 25 status.
We started with a list of 110 blogs related to Human Resources gathered from internet searches. Next, Shared Count was used to collect and analyze social shares on each of the blog home pages. Social share metrics gathered include; Facebook likes, Facebook Shares, Facebook comments, Tweets, +1’s, Pins, LinkedIn shares, Delicious, and Reddit.
Then one by one, we reviewed the top 50 blogs to confirm that they were addressing human resource professionals. Wanting to focus on HR in general, we filtered out any sites dedicated to only one aspect of HR, such as recruiting. Finally the social share metrics were tallied up and sorted by their totals. The top 25 progressed to the next phase, of data collection.
One by one, each blog was visited and the URL's of each individual blog post for a three-month period (June, July, and August) were collected. Again we used Shared Count to collect and analyze social shares on the individual blog posts for each blog. Each social share metric was totaled for each blog site and then totaled according to the aggregate. The end result is the table shown above.
If you feel the hankering to analyze the raw data yourself, you can download it here.
