Coming back to the German Blogs Study 2007 I quoted some days back, there is some more interesting information on blogs.
What kind of blogs get the highest credibility?
- The Study shows that the least credible are the corporate blogs (26,4% do not trust their content)
- Only 12,1% do not trust the content of privat blogs
- Media- and journalists` blogs are highly credible (from 4 to 7% blog-useres do not trust them)
- But the top-credibility prise goes to the expert-blogs (only 2.1% do not trust them!)
Unfortunately the Study does not differentiate privat blogs with adSence and without, I am sure there will be some difference in Ranking.
To sum it up, I would say that obviously blogging keeps its individual character and is generally a trustworthy media.
I am convinced that the success of blogs lays in the heart and good will people put in it. That is what makes them trustworthy.
However as soon as there is some money-making interest, the spirit of blogging dyes away…
Don`t you think?
