Are Blogs the Only Way to Discover News?
Over at SEOcritique.com Tom Schmitz asked a few search marketers to reveal some the alternative ways they discover news and tips.
Asking bloggers to share their tips, is a great way to put together a post that will attract others, and Tom does well to get feedback from Danny Sullivan, Rand Fishkin, Neil Patel, Todd Malicoat, Barry Schwartz and myself.
Here’s a couple that I shared…
- I monitor the job classifieds sites to understand whoâ€™s hiring. This often gives good clues about new products or services and works well with large companies such as Google.
- I also track a lot of industry keywords in different search engines. For example, if Technorati finds a new blog post that matches the phrase â€œsearch engineâ€, Iâ€™ll know about it.
How do you find your news, outside of blogs?
