Marketing, SEO & Blogging Related Blogs That I Read

November 12, 2008 by  

The number of blogs that I subscribe to changes all the time as new ones being added and old ones are removed as I continue to discover better ones that serve my needs better.

Undoubtedly, there are many other excellent blogs that I have not included in my list. That said, I’m trying to minimize the number of blog that I subscribe to, to the bare minimum.  IMHO, there’s no point in subscribing to hundreds and hundreds of blog feeds if the end result is information overload.

Besides, I just don’t have the time to keep up with all of them anyway. While it’s important to read blogs to keep yourself informed of the latest happenings and developments, it’s more important to practice what you’ve read.

Now here are some of the blogs that I’ve been a subscriber for a while.


Google AdSense

  • Inside AdSense
    There’s no better place to keep track with the latest development with AdSense than from the official AdSense blog

  • JenSense
    Here’s another good source for independent opinions and news for contextual advertising such as AdSense and YPM, although, it appears that this blog has not been updated for a while.



  • Inside AdWords
    Google’s official blog for news, information and tips on AdWords. If you are spending money on Google AdWords, this blog is one that you can’t afford to ignore.


Affiliate Programs

  • Affiliate Blog By Shawn Collins
    I’ve been reading articles written by Shawn since late 1999. In addition to the normal affiliate marketing industry news, Shawn gives away some useful tips and guides to help people make money from affiliate marketing.

  • CPA Affiliates
    Another good source for tips and techniques in affiliate marketing. Then again, this blog has not been updated since late August.

    This is actually one of the better affiliate marketing blogs out there but it appears it’s going through a hiatus since on Nov 13 2007.

    If you want to learn how a super affiliate makes money from PPC & affiliate marketing this is the blog for you. For starters, check out how Zac made over US800K in profit in 4 months.

  • Reve News
    Contributed by several authors who discuss about online advertising, CPA, SEO and affiliate marketing.

  • Super Affiliate Mindset
    Amit Metha is the super affiliate behind this blog. What I like the most about his blog is the practical advice he shares that you can use in your own marketing effort. He often talks about how you need to change your mindset first in order to move closer to you goals. Sadly, moving forward, Amit decided to write fewer posts in order to set aside more of his time to helping PPC Classroom 2.0 students.



    Almost everything you need to know about blogging and making money from your blog.

  • The Blog Herald
    Blog news, features, interviews, podcasts and the whole enchilada


Google News


Internet Marketing

  • Besting AdWords
    The short posts help me scan through the content quickly and find news that really matters. While you won’t find the blog breaking new ground anytime soon, I find it quite insightful to read the writer’s personal experience on certain issues.

  • Dosh Dosh
    Articles about marketing on the Internet and social media. Good blog, but be prepared to read some long articles.

    I read JC to keep me motivated about making money from blogging.

  • MindValley Labs
    Besides Internet marketing tips and tricks, this blog is also a good place to find some AdWords tactics. was mentioned in one of their posts once

  • ShoeMoney
    This is a good site to get you inspired. You’ll also find some killer marketing ideas sprinkled throughout the blogs.


Search Engine Optimization (SEO)


I subscribe to several other blogs besides those above but for the time being this list should keep you busy for a while.

That is an impressive list, way more than I am comfortable subscribing too. With a list that size I would be hard pressed to read them all daily, as well as scouring the web for new and upcoming blogs.

I can’t believe you listed the black hat blog :p Anyway, its good to know all techniques. I recently found out that I am ranked no 2 in Yahoo but ranked lower in Google. Seems like Yahoo prefers keyword more.

Hi Gaman, I’m regularly struggling with the information overload you mention. Have you developed any tricks that helps you avoid getting into that “overload” feeling? Even though you’re just following a few blogs they can still hold incredible amounts of information.

I used to follow quite a lot of blogs in the past, not to mention forum threads and posts. But they were quite the time sink. Spent more time reading than actually doing anything. 🙂 Now, I favor just one or two blogs that I find really informative.

yahoo does seem to give a preference to keywords as opposed to Google,But,as google loves frsh content so much,would a news widget,e.g.BBC or CNN,keep providing Google with fresh content as news is regularly updated?

2009-09-16 16:19:03

Your blogs list is very inspiring. I have used to read some of repeatedly. Keep up the good list and keep on posting.
