I just noticed that Online Marketing Blog was included in the 9rules Network. So far there have been three, 24-hour submission rounds with hundreds of blogs trying to get in, but only a few make it, like Neil and Cameron’s Pronet Advertising Blog. In fact, although I’d met Neil at conferences before, I didn’t discover his blog until I found it on 9rules along with another favorite, Experience Curve.
Inclusion criteria are here, but basically include: passion for the subject, quantity and quality of writing, topics and design.
The benefits of being part of 9rules include the exposure on the site, in the communities and featured sections as well as participation with a private member forum. After looking at this blog’s server log for the past few hours, I can already see some nice traffic benefits.
