Reader Poll: Best SEM Email Discussion Lists

reader poll

Threaded email discussion lists are a bit old school communications in contrast to the rise in popularity of blogs and RSS. However, there are several of these channels that serve as a sort of digital watering hole for some of the most experienced search marketers who dispel invaluable insights.

For large segments of the internet community, email remains a preferred discussion tool. The platforms most often used for such lists these days seem to be Google Groups and Yahoo Groups.

One of the best known and now out of commission lists was the I-Search Discussion List, which I’ve written about before. In fact, there are remnants of the I-Search list in at least three of the discussion lists in this week’s poll, which hopes to both find out what lists OMB readers prefer as well as draw attention to some great sources of search marketing information.

Which is the most useful online marketing discussion list?

  • LED Digest (83%, 54 Votes)
  • Google's Discussion Group For Webmasters (6%, 4 Votes)
  • Search Return (5%, 3 Votes)
  • Some blackhat thread we don't know about (5%, 3 Votes)
  • SEM 2.0 (2%, 1 Votes)
  • Online Advertising Digest (0%, 0 Votes)

Total Voters: 65

As always, the list above only includes the lists I am aware of and use, so be sure to mention your favorite SEM/PPC discussion list in the comments if not mentioned here.
