Lee Odden has supplied the search community with an awesome list of search marketing blogs. Over 250 in fact! As great as the list is, I was a little bewildered as where best to start – there are the usual household names, but also heaps of cool new ones.
You could load them all into your favourite RSS reader, use a social bookmarking site or even create a custom search engine to plough through all the news. A custom search engine, isn’t that what Google does anyway you might ask?
Well sort of, although I think it holds value as the list has been filtered (customised) under the careful eye of Lee & co. Plus acronyms such as SEM, SMM & SMO are not that well represented for search marketing in search engines, eeek!
Search All Search Marketing Blogs
Loren Baker over at Search Engine Journal has been taking votes for the best Search Marketing Blog in various categories. The votes are in and congratulations to all the winners! This gave me the idea to categorise Lee’s Search Marketing blogs into custom search engines using Google Co-op. So here goes:
Category list can be found here.
Blog Marketing & PR
Web Design & Analytics
Search (Engine) News
Miscellaneous Search Marketing
For simplicity I have limited each blog to only one category. Maybe I will expand it later on.
These categories are my interpretation of Lee’s descriptions and also some of my own judgments. With over 250 blogs and the quick nature that I put the search engines together, I am sure that a few blogs may have fallen into the wrong areas (or even worse, completely omitted).
So I apologise in advance if this is the case and to those that I have put into the miscellaneous list – they are all important, but time was the real issue!
Please let me know if I missed any blogs or if I am way off the mark and I will happily add or move them.
I hope this is of some use to someone, even if it’s just for a couple of playful minutes. As always, feedback welcomed.
