Word Visualization on Search Marketing Blogs

Lists and ranking resources can be tough and controversial. A while back we ranked top blogs on the topic of search engine marketing (SEO and PPC) that publish their RSS subscriber counts via Google’s Feedburner.

With changes in the search marketing industry, one can logically wonder, “How many SEM blogs really still post about search marketing?” To help answer that question, we took a look at 10 of the top search marketing blogs by RSS subscriber counts using the Wordle “word cloud” tool:

Matt Cutts

Search Engine Land

Search Engine Watch

Search Engine Journal

Online Marketing Blog

Search Engine Guide

Marketing Pilgrim

What do you think? Interesting results.

Keep in mind of course, that these Wordle word cloud images are based on a single day snapshot of the home page, not the entire site. However, it’s still interesting to see the visualization.

    “Google” and “Web Content”

    also could be used as a demographic of what people talk about if you did it every day of the week and compared them against themselves.
