[img_assist|nid=32|title=The best, or?|desc=|link=node|align=left|width=100|height=25] eDrugSearch.com, a commericial online pharmacy, and free source of drug information for consumers, has come up with an ingenious marketing plan - it has come up with a list of the world's Top 100 Medical blogs. Even if you don't trust dot.com sites, or like the drugsite's motivation behind this list, you have to admit it garners attention.
eDrugSearch's list ranks medical blogs using Google Pagerank, data from technorati.com and Bloglines, and its own qualitative score from 1-10. As bloggers tried to find themselves on the list yesterday, the medical blogosphere was abuzz about the rankings - but little critical evaluation about how the list was derived in the first place.
That said, OM blog got an honourable mention as a top 200 blog. As a new blog here at Open Medicine, we have a long-term growth plan. My involvement in OM marks an important turn in the history of medical publishing in that I am collaborating with some of the best minds in medicine - medical librarians take note, this is our future. My goal is a long-term one to deliver content of value to readers, especially physicians and medical librarians, but also to get our mission right through collaboration.
I hope you can help me in that regard by telling me what you think of this blog. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
