Top UK Internet Marketing Blogs 2012

UK Internet Marketing Blogs

Update for 2013: What are your favourite UK based online marketing blogs? We’re taking nominations for our 2013 list to be published in February. Please share in the comments below!

Last year we ran a poll to identify the top Internet Marketing blogs in the UK which ended up getting a little spicy.  There were over 3,000 votes cast (both human and bot) plus a ton of lively discussion (60+ comments). Many long time online marketing folks know of our famous BIGLIST of SEO blogs and so there was a lot of awareness and interest in getting on the UK list.

A lot has changed in the past year so I think it’s worth revisiting that list.

Blogs continue to represent highly effective content hubs for integrated SEO, Social Media and Content Marketing programs for all kinds of companies and industries, not just internet marketing. I’ve traveled to the UK many times and between my discussions with practitioners at conferences and the clients TopRank has in London, it’s clear that while there are many amazingly talented internet marketers in the UK, many companies are not as progressive in their approach.

Blogs are a great way to draw attention to solving that disparity and I’d like to draw attention to these useful internet marketing blogs covering everything from SEO to Social to Analytics to the intersection with other marketing channels.

Here’s that list of 35 UK internet marketing blogs below, organized alphabetically, for your consideration and comment.

Are these still the top blogs on digital marketing topics for the UK? What would you add? Which would you take out? This post is also an open invite for the authors of these blogs to do a review of Optimize.

I will be in the UK again next week 4/18 at the ionSearch conference in Leeds, which has a great line up of speakers ranging from Matt Bush of Google to Kevin Gibbons of SEOptimise to Ralph Tegtmeier of, well, if you have to ask it’s better that maybe you don’t know 🙂

Dave Snyder from the U.S. will be there as well as Andy Atkins Kruger from WebCertain in York. There will be plenty of folks from Blueclaw Media, who is running the conference there as well.

At ionSearch I’ll be talking about the evolution of SEO in the form of Optimize (of course). I’d like to invite bloggers in the UK that are attending to do a review of Optimize.  We’ll feature any reviews on our book site with links and all.  To do  review of Optimize, just contact us at mail at optimizebook dot come for details.

  1. I’ll add 2d-code.co.uk/  Roger Smolski’s blog is arguably the top 2d (QR) code blog in the world.

  2. At the risk of self-promotion, rather than going and asking a friend to come and mention my site, I’d like to at least put forward thewayoftheweb.net

  3. I’ll do the review anyway Lee 😉

  4. Hi Lee

    Could I make an entirely self-serving suggestion? But, one I think you’ll find useful.

    You seem to have missed Wordtracker’s Academy – http://www.wordtracker.com/academy

    We publish on SEO, PPC and social. In the past few weeks we’ve published free introductory guides to:
    – SEO (100 pages) – http://bit.ly/free-seo-guide
    – Link building (100 pages) – http://bit.ly/link-building-guide
    – and next Tuesday, we’ll be publishing a new edition of our Keyword Research Guide (90 pages).

    We’ve also published articles and videos about Google+, LinkedIn, and conversion. 

    I hope that gives a flavor of what we do and you’ll consider us when next compiling your list.

    We’ll be at ionsearch, too, so please say hi!

    thankz for the sharing huge information with us list of sites that you have provided is quite well and informative very helpful for any digital marketing analyst in their seo campaign

  37. Hi, thanks for that list. I am looking for internet marketing blogs. I just want to ask, do you use SEO for your blog. People are now saying that it’s not necessary ? Always looking for a second opinion…

    • If a blog expects to attract readers through search, then SEO is a useful way to make sure you’re creating content that is in demand and that it’s easy to find.

  38. Hi Lee. Thanks for the great list of blogs. Really helpful and very valuable. I was really looking for such a huge list for learning new stuff and I found yours. I must appreciate your efforts on making this!
