When I first started Online Marketing Blog in Dec 2003, it was mostly a reblog. I would post links to articles I found interesting on the web. I would also add comments to those links. When I transferred the blog away from blogspot.com hosting to it’s own domain name and WordPress, I also stopped posting news links for the most part and moved those sorts of posts to a blog I was using to develop article ideas. I’ve had Thomas update the layout of that blog and it is now called Search Marketing News.
I often get pitched by PR firms, company product and brand managers, bloggers as well as peruse an aggregate of over 200 RSS feeds, all of which cull some great news items but sometimes not enough to write a full post on. That, or I just don’t have time. I am running a SEO business you know. The Search Marketing News Blog is updated pretty much every day and culls a collection of search marketing news, product updates and information.
