Our 50 Favorite Search Marketing Blogs for SEO, PPC, Social Media and Everything In-Between


At WordStream, we're all pretty avid blog readers. We read a variety of search marketing blogs and subscribe to dozens of different RSS feeds.

So I thought it would be interesting to ask everyone at WordStream for a list of their favorite SEO, PPC, Internet marketing and social media blogs, and put together a master compilation of our 50 favorites.

Think of this list as the “recommended” section from the staff at your local Blockbuster. Actually, are there even any Blockbusters left?

Anyway, here’s the extensive list I’ve compiled of our 50 favorite search marketing blogs. It's a good mix of industry standards and hopefully some little known, but great blogs you haven't heard of yet that you can add to your own Google reader feed.
