  • The eDrugsearch list does have some problems. I think there should be a transparency/commercial influence score for each blog. How do you think your own site would do in that regard? Not very well, I’d suggest.

  • Dean,

    I welcome any suggestions for improving the ranking system. I know it’s not perfect, but we’re committed to making it as accurate a reflection of the medical blogosphere as possible.

    As for “transparency/commercial influence,” I’m not sure how we could be more transparent; please explain. And yes, we’re a commercial venture. We see no shame in that.

    Thanks for posting.

    You might consider two lists: 1) for information purposes only and 2) commercial ventures. Most health librarians, for example, would recommend MEDLINEplus due to a lack of advertising. Too many blogs are overcome with advertising and this takes away from readability, navigation and a neutral point of view.
