I have been meaning to compile an ordered list of blogs that I am most likely to read in more detail. By that I mean, blogs I read in my RSS reader (Bloglines) that I am most likely to click through, from the RSS reader, to the blog itself to read. Rand pushed me to write this based on his ranked list. Here is the ordered list of blogs I am most likely to click-through on.

I list all the blogs I read currently in my link farm section of this site. I have pulled out the 76 SEM blogs in the current list. This is an ordered list of which blogs I am most likely to click over to from my RSS reader (this is not based on actual metrics, since I don’t have those numbers, would be cool to have that Bloglines, wink wink): Oh, of course, I left Search Engine Roundtable off the list, and I probably should of left Search Engine Watch off the list, either way, here it is.

    Nice list. My SEO blog opened for biz just prior to this year’s SES San Jose. Reading through some of the above blogs is going to keep me busy …

  2. Mike Valentine

    Barry, I saw you a half dozen times at SES (several in the press room) but failed to introduce myself (we were both always typing like madmen). I was there covering the show for WebProNews and compiled all that coverage on my own blog at RealitySEO. My favorite SEO blog is SERoundtable without a doubt. You do a great job and deserve that big Marketing Sherpa “Best Blog 2006” win. Congrats! Drop by and take a look at RealitySEO once in awhile. I awarded you top honors as best SEO blog there on March 8 – before Marketing Sherpa. 😉

  3. Hawaii SEO

    Great list! I thought I read a lot of blogs.

    Is there any way that you could expand this to include the top 500 SEO Blogs so that I might have a better chance of showing up on the radar? ;^)

  4. searchenginefeeds

    It’s so hard to put all the ‘good’ blogs on one list. With so many niches related to SEO and Online marketing it makes it difficult to sort and rank the very best ones. I noticed on my own list I left many out that are a good read. Seems like it is the same with Rand’s and yours.

    Either way, thanks for another great list of search engine, SEO, Online marketing and linking blogs!

    Check out mine at: Search Engine Feeds

    I will throw my newly formed blog into the mix:

    While the blog is relatively new, I have been in the Internet space from the beginning, and recently left the comforts of full-time employ to give the consulting gig a try “full-time”. Any comments are appreciated.

    How do you read all those blog? I mean even if you speed 5 minute per blog, you will have to spend 6 hours per day for all these reading.

    And 5 minutes is not even long enough for you to type the url and talk a good peek at the details of those blog.

  7. Barry Schwartz

    There is no way I spend close to 5 minutes per blog.

    >> And 5 minutes is not even long enough for you to type the url and talk a good peek at the details of those blog.

    York, did you hear of RSS? That is the only way I can possibly scan all them each day.

  8. IrishWonder

    Hey Barry,

    Now that I’m back to blogging more or less regularly again, any chance you will read me? Seeing a few BH blogs on your list… hint hint 😉
