In every industry there are a few people who are unarguably outstanding at what they do. In addition to that, they are typically charismatic, energetic, and creative. In an effort to find some of these people Ron Hudson, of Immediate Influence, asked his twitter friends to nominate people who they thought were some of the most powerful and influential women in Social Media. It was no surprise that they quickly and enthusiastically responded with the list of ladies below.

While you will undoubtedly notice that some of the ladies have a large amount of sites linked to their blogs or websites, the determining factor was ranking. Why? Ranking depicts how much traffic their blogs/websites receive over a certain period.

    A quick question about the rank: was that derived from Technorati’s ranking system, or from another system? I’m always curious as to where social media numbers come from 🙂

    Seems like the most influential women are all related to technology and marketing… Cool 😀
