  1. Thanks for including MarketingBlurb in your list!

  2. Thanks. We appreciate the recognition and are clearly in great company on this list.

    Best,

    Derrick

    Branding Strategy Insider

  3. Now that’s an impressive collection of bloggers. Thanks for sorting and shifting them into categories for us!

    Best,

    Drew

  4. I find this type of list really useful and it always helps to point me at blogs I haven’t experienced or remind how long its been since I paid a visit to some that are great.

    Just a shame that my Business Coaching blog is going to be too general even though there is a lot of marketing content for small businesses.

  5. Thanks Susan, Derrick, Drew and Paul for your comments.
    If anyone has any feedback regarding how the format could be tweaked in any shape / form, please let me know. Or anything else.

  6. Hi, Eamon ..
    Thanks for the inclusion of both OneDegree.ca and MyNameIsKate.ca! Amazing company to be in. And I love the grouping – very helpful!

    Cheers .. Kate

  7. Good list – although it would be good to get more new names and small blogs on the list..there’s only a couple of names I don’t already know/read/subscribe to. And I’d suspect most marketing people are aware of Seth Godin, Joseph Jaffe etc…

  8. Kate and Dan. Thanks for commenting.
    Dan: I will be fine-tuning this list, and adding other (lists).

  9. I am outraged we didn’t make the branding section…

    http://www.brandidentityguru.com/wordpress

    Maybe not outraged, just sad…very, very sad. I’m officially crying directly in my hands as I type.

  10. Big Kahuna.
    Thanks for your comment.
    Please be aware that this list is not set in stone. It will be reviewed regularly.

  11. This is such an outstanding list, it’s a keeper and a passer-oner (if that’s a word). I know a lot of these blogs, but not all. It’s heartening to see Toby Bloomberg’s blog, Diva Marketing, included.

    One little error – not going deep enough, to some really fab niche blogs on marketing and word of mouth: where’s Customer Evangelists? And Lip-sticking? And, Wonder Branding?

    Actually, you can’t include every great blog, every time. I am eager to explore the blogs I don’t know — thanks for highlighting the best of the best. Great sharing content.

  12. Yvonne. Thanks. Will be providing other lists, too. For the moment, just focusing on this one (for general readership).

  13. Thanks for the eternal fame of ViralBlog.com
    We like your whole list as well ;-)

    Cheers

    Igor Beuker

  14. Thanks Igor. Find interesting / useful / enjoy your blog, in particular Viral Friday!

  15. Thanks for a great list (and thanks for including ConverStations:-))

  16. Can I suggest for the Itlian people our blog: http://www.ninjamarketing.it ?

  17. Mike and Alex. Thank you for your comments.

    Alex. I’m afraid English-language blogs only:
    1) The list is a worldwide list (of benefit / interest to people from different countries who speak English)
    2) We evaluate each blog using different criteria. In particular, quality of content (which we can only read in English).
    Apologies. Hope you understand.

    • Regarding non-English blogs…, translate.google.com is an excellent platform for translating an entire web-page, or a snippet of text, from/to nearly sixty languages. It will even detect the webpage language if you are not sure what it is. Maybe using the translate function a future/specialty list could be provided of other language websites that are of the same quality as these English-language ones.

  18. Thanks for the inclusion on this stellar list!

  19. Many thanks for including our blog about marketing to the older market. A great list of UK marketing and ideas blogs.

  20. Robert and Dick. Thanks for your comment. Glad to include your sites.

  21. Great list!

    I’d be remiss not to mention incomplete without a PR/SEO blog listed in the AdAge Power 150 and the Technorati 100 favorites lists that is not on the list above:

    TopRank’s Online Marketing Blog http://www.toprankblog.com

    Hopefully you’ll consider in your next update.

    Cheers!

  22. Great content. I really found it useful.

  23. Thank you for including Customers Rock! on your list of Top 100 blogs. I love the way you describe my blog: focusing on happy customers. My new elevator pitch! :)

    Could you be so kind as to update my blog address, as it recently moved from customersrock.wordpress.com to http://www.customersrock.net.

    Thanks again!

  24. Lee, Christian and Becky – thanks for comments.
    Lee: –> Digital marketing category
    Becky: updated URL (tag line sounds good I think ..).

  25. Hi Eamon,

    Fantastic list; bookmarked.

    Please consider adding Real Fresh TV for a UK corporate perspective on Social Media.

    We are publishing the UK’s first study into social media usage amongst FTSE 100 companies…one blog post at a time.

    http://www.realfresh.tv/introduction-to-study-on-social-media-usage-amongst-ftse-100-companies/

    The idea is to create a resource for brand managers and account planners who are currently starved for UK specific case studies…

    Thanks!

  26. Could you change the link for The Inspiration Room to its new home at http://theinspirationroom.com/daily/ ?
    Thanks

  27. Interesting list. Will be referring to it in the future.

  28. GREAT! Thanks so much for this list – Hope I get there more information…

  30. This is a very resourceful list of reputable blogs. It can aid greatly in information dissemination about important digital marketing issues.

  31. I have a marketing blog too , named

  32. Thanks for your comments

    The top 100 Blogs cover all the leading blogs from the in advertising, marketing, media & PR from around the world. Selection is based on many criteria, including: popularity on major blog search / bookmark sites, the amount / type of comments, as well as other factors. There are many great blogs out there would love to include in list but haven’t been able to (because there are many more than just 100 great blogs ..).
