Marketing, SEO & Blogging Related Blogs That I Read
November 12, 2008 by Gaman
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.
- Inside AdSense
There’s no better place to keep track with the latest development with AdSense than from the official AdSense blog
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 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.
