Long Overdue Blogroll Updates

I noticed yesterday that my blog had been added to Frank Schilling's Seven Mile blogroll (yes, the Frank Schilling recently mentioned in Business 2.0):

Frank Schilling's Blogroll
This made my day. It also reminded me that I needed to update my blogroll. A link from a blogroll is, in a sense, a vote of confidence. This is more important than the SEO benefits of a link, IMHO. So, today, I've completely revamped my blogroll to include more sections and more sites. I subscribe to many more blog feeds via NetVibes but wanted to highlight some of the blogs I "vote" for. Do check them out.

First, I renamed the "Blog Trackers" blogroll section "Blog / Meme Trackers" as these sites track more than just blogs. Existing sites included BlogsNow and Techmeme. I added Threadwatch. It's now a daily stop for me.

To the "AdWords Help Blogs" section, I added (Brad Geddes) and (Shuman Ghosemajumder). Shuman is a fellow MIT grad and works at Google on click fraud issues. Maybe once he's solved the click fraud problem, he'll tackle distribution fraud on the Google AdWords PPC advertising network(s).

I added a handful of blogs to the "Search Engine Marketing Blogs" list: Tropical SEO, SEO Refugee, SEO Book (way beyond SEO), Small Business SEM, Marketing Pilgrim, Traffick, Search Marketing Standard (also subscribe to their SEM magazine).

There's a brand new blogroll section "Domainer Blogs" which lists some of the domain industry blogs I've recently started reading: Seven Mile, Domain Editorial, Conceptualist, Domain Tools, Domain Name Wire, Whizzbang, The Key (Paul Sloan of Business 2.0).

Last, but certainly not least, I've created a "9rules Blogs" section for the blogroll. Since joining the 9rules network last year, I've found some terrific blogs on a wide variety of topics. In the blogroll, I'm including a few that might be relevant for readers of this blog: 9rules Blog,, MindValley Labs, Andrew Wee, ExperienceCurve, Emergence Media, Influential Interactive Marketing. Visit the 9rules Business and Marketing communities for more great blogs.

Well, perhaps I'll make somebody else's day today. Enjoy these blogs. ;-)

No problem, Frank. I hope you'll continue posting to Domain Editorial now that your startup, Shared Reviews, has launched.
