  10. 10. Copyright Boomylabs 2011-2013 Methodology Analyse the last 25 blog posts for 22 top blogs (we made a lists of each) We manually tag 550 posts We tag each post on the list based on it containing video, audio, slides, lists, graphic and documents Double counting is intentional - ie some posts can include a slides, videos, lists etc The total count for each media type was multiplied by 4 to give a %age. The %ages are not additive across media Videos, slides, audio and documents are easy to categorize (no explanation required) Graphics include infographic and memes or just analysis or metric (generally not just screenshots of photos) Lists include any form of content that is broken out as a number or unnumbered list. Generally this was list of three items or more. It did not require the list to be mentioned in the blog post title. Tuesday, 30 July, 13
