Whether you’re a business owner looking to learn more about leveraging social media, blogging, and SEO to boost sales, or an aspiring inbound marketer like me, staying up-to-date with industry developments is mission critical. Google alone makes more than 400 changes to its ranking algorithm every year, and it seems like a new social media platform makes an appearance every day. The Internet provides a lot of opportunities for data-driven success, but if you want results, you need to keep up.
The list below includes blogs that I read on a daily basis via Google Reader. Some are more focused than others. Social Media Examiner primarily covers developments in the social media space, whereas copyblogger is an excellent resource for aspiring bloggers. That said, integration is the cornerstone of most successful marketing campaigns, so it’s worth your time to spend a few minutes at least scanning the headlines and reading pieces that pique your interest.
Well, enough small talk, let’s get right to it:
