BIGLIST Search Marketing Blogs 113009

Lee Odden     BIGLIST SEM Blogs


Absence makes the heart grow fonder and we know online marketers already like the BIGLIST of online marketing blogs reviews. This new update that is decidedly focused on search engine optimization should start your week off right.

The Search Agents

While we have a good looking group this week, the Search Agents was the winner for the best looking Search Marketing blog. Not only does it offer a clever theme, but content and usability to boot. There are more contributors listed than most SEM agencies have in their employ. Content is balanced between SEO and SEM followed by everybody’s friend, Social Media. The Search Agents is the official corporate blog of The Search Agency, an integrated online marketing firm headquartered in Santa Monica, CA.

Let’s get to it with the last BIGLIST class of November 2009:

  • Actionable Insights – Covario isn’t just a leading San Diego company in the interactive marketing analytics space, it’s full of Covarians. What do those Covarians do when they’re not using their clever software to automate and analyze SEO and PPC? Why, they’re writing about industry news and updates, indepth analyses, strategic and tactical advice on a blog good enough to make it on the BIGLIST.
  • SEO Contrarian – What are the chances of another SEO having been a Combat Engineer in the Army? Except my stint was long, long ago. Ari Ozick has his opinions and even a Manifesto, which makes for interesting blogging, especially when mixed with skill and first hand experience. Don’t let the SEO Scum category scare you, just read.
  • Shark SEO – Dave Peiris works for iCrossing in London and besides playing with search engines all the live long day, he likes coffee, jaffa cakes, napping and designing clever linkbait. The good kind.  The blog has a very cool design but reading what’s on a good SEO’s mind is even better. And no sharks to be seen.
  • Best SEO Blog – With an awfully literal name, (oh wait, we do that too) this blog by Michael Martinez, Nicholas Ramirez and Gene Tapang from Visible Technologies puts out “the latest in search engine marketing tactics, the tried and true techniques.”  With posts back to 2007 there’s plenty of SEO insight to gain, which is a good thing in a world currently dominated by social media content.
  • SimpleFuzz – Jeremy Martin admits to his vices: webaholicism. Which of course, is a good thing when you blog, since that openness means the opportunity to exchange ideas. Say, on the topics of seo, social media, ppc, blogging or web design. This blog is a great resource for small businesses in Utah, where it’s written and beyond.
  • Holistic Search Marketing – Like TopRank’s BIGLIST, Peter Young (Head of SEO at Mediavest in Manchester) has his own list called TSMR (Top Search Marketing Resources) that you may want to get on. I can’t tell you how here, you’ll just have to visit his blog and find out. While you’re there, check out all the fine SEO and Google focused blog posts too.

Made the BIGLIST did you? Well then don’t forget to wear this impressive badge.
