Big-ListLee Odden over at Top Rank has a running “Big List” of SEM blogs which is a veritable who’s who of search marketing blogs. Literally, every blog I personally read is on the list and it’s a very useful resource. Over 350 blogs relating to search marketing, blogging, social media, and new media public relations are recommended. Thanks to Top Rank for including aimClear Search Marketing Blog on the Big List.

Hard to Make the Cut
There is no site-submission or review-request process to get on the Big List. Odden says up front that inclusion is “totally subjective and not an attempt to be a comprehensive resource, but one we’ve found to be useful at TopRank.” Still the Big List is very well respected in the trade and is an important benchmark of any search marketing blog’s credibility.

Some of my favorite blogs on the Big List are: Bill Hartzer, Bruce Clay Blog, Cartoon Barry, Copyblogger, DaggleGraywolf’s SEO Blog, High Rankings Advisor Archives, Jim Boykin Internet Marketing Blog, Market Position, Matt Cutts, Occam’s Razor, Pronet Advertising, Search Engine Land, Search Marketing Standard Blog, and SEO by the SEA.

    Thanks for mentioning my blog. I’ve actually been using that big list for a while now–to keep up with what’s really going on the SEM industry. It’s very helpful, especially if you’re a search marketer.

    Congrats and glad you are enjoying my blog.

    My blog was very young when the list was first produced, and I was almost unheard of in the SEO community. I actually linkbaited my way onto the list by creating a Google Toolbar Button that combined the list with the megite meme, which for me is daily reading, and Alister Cameron’s SEO Search.
