How do you get on the list?

We don’t take requests to add blogs to the BIGLIST, but we do find new blogs to add in the course of covering the industry. Blogs that we include must primarily cover marketing topics and post 4-5 times per month or more. Other considerations include, blog design, usability, writing style and quality.

Making Changes

Our goal is to provide a useful and accurate list of active blogs about marketing. Managing such a large list over time means we may not catch every change. Common changes include changing domain names, writer changes and topics covered. If you have changes that need to be made in your BIGLIST entry, then contact TopRank using the web form.
