Internet Marketing Sources
Inside AdWords Blog
Some news sources break AdWords developments so fast you’d think they were constantly hitting refresh on the official Inside AdWords blog. Obviously, the definitive place to get (officially sanctioned) news about new AdWords features, the AdWords blog is the news source for PPC marketers who need to know what’s going on as it happens. Remember, however, that when it comes to the juicier gossip about AdWords, you’ll have to look elsewhere…
Search Engine Land
If you’re in search, you’re probably already an avid reader of Search Engine Land. The publication also organizes and hosts the hotly anticipated Search Marketing Expo (SMX) conference every year. The industry’s go-to news source for both breaking headlines and comprehensive analysis, Search Engine Land should be in every search marketer’s RSS feed.
Search Engine Watch
Another must-read for search marketers, Search Engine Watch provides a wide range of coverage of everything that’s going on in digital marketing. Although SEW does offer breaking news and timely content, it also provides analysis of developing trends and actionable how-to articles that will help you become a better search marketer.
Search Engine Journal
Over the years, SEJ has grown from a small but dedicated blog into a diverse and reliable source of Internet marketing news with its finger on the pulse of everything search, social, SEO, and content. SEJ is also in the events business, running the impressive SEJ Summit, and also hosts the Marketing Nerds podcast, a series that’s as entertaining as it is informative.
The SEM Post, run by Jennifer Slegg, is always one of the first sites to break news stories about the industry’s biggest events, and I’m sure that even the “big boys” of Internet marketing news have been beaten to the punch by the SEM Post on at least a couple of occasions. If you want to stay up-to-date on what’s going on in search, be sure to subscribe to the SEM Post’s RSS feed and follow them on Twitter – they usually update several times per day, making it one of the best places to keep up with our rapidly changing industry.
I feel like every time I mention Moz here on the WordStream blog I end up gushing about how great they are, but it’s hard not to. One of the digital marketing industry’s best-known and most-loved companies, Moz also creates top-tier content about content, SEO, and wider digital marketing trends. From Rand’s Whiteboard Fridays to Dr. Pete’s in-depth analysis of search’s most mysterious enigmas, there’s always something worth reading (or watching) at Moz.
