» Top 150 marketing blogs in U.S. from The Publicity Hound's Blog
One of the best ways to generate publicity is to create a Top 10 list. But if you want to start a real buzz online, make the list a lot longer. For example, how about choosing the best bloggers in your area of expertise? PR/marketing ... [Read More]

Nice posting. Do you have any tips on how I can improve my blog rankings? Unfortunately, I'm new to blogging. I'm not looking to have the number one blog. However, I'd like to have a more respectable ranking.

Todd Andrlik

Thanks, David, for all the kind words. It means a lot coming from a blogger who helped me get my start in blogging. Looking forward to the new book!

Mike Sigers

Wow ! What a great resource Todd created.

I hope to get added to that list next time myself.

Marketrman:

Some things that I would suggest based on checking out your blog:

> Create original posts. While it is nice to point to things you see on other blogs and YouTube and whatnot - what do YOU think. What's your take on the marketing world?
> It's not just about tricks like link sharing. It is about great content.
> Why do you call yourself "MarketRMan" rather than your real name? People read blogs from real people.
>Tell us who you are and why you are blogging. Your "about me" page doesn't say much. People read blogs from real people. If you don't have much about yourself in your profile, people may think you don't care or are hiding something.
> Consider making your blog a specialist in a defined niche rather than the broad field of Marketing.
> The huge ad you have for the Katrina fund, while thoughtful, has nothing at all to do with your blog. Yes it is a nice community thing, but it doesn't help your blog drive traffic. When I first linked to your blog I thought you were writing a hurricane blog.

Good luck, David

Marketrman

Thanks for the feedback. I'll make sure to implement those suggestions. By the way, Marketrman since I currently work for a market research company. Marketrman is short for Market Research Man.

Joan Stewart, The Publicity Hound

Thanks, David, for pointing out this "Top 150" list which I didn't know about until I visited your blog.

I checked it out and, much to my surprise, my blog is on the list, at Number 104.

Here's hoping I can surpass you next year! (Isn't this fun?)
