We at Holistic Search, like many other search marketing professionals read a lot of online resources as part of the day to day learning process. With so many resources out there it can be difficult to know whats good and whats not. Introducing the TSMR page to Holistic Search, a page dedicated to the best of search marketing blogs out there.

This page will be updated on a regular basis by the team at Holistic Search and is open to any blog dedicated to search marketing, online pr and social media

How do you get on the Top Search Marketing Resources (TSMR) list?
I guess the first thing to say is let us know about it, if we don’t know about it we can’t add it. Link to the site, send us an email – how you do it is up to you.

In terms of what we look at for sites added to the list, we are looking for quality resources – offering valuable insight into the modern digital marketing landscape – not just any old blog to the list. However that said we are not just going to add blogs to the list for the sake of it. If it isn’t updated regularly or doubles up as your personal blog there is little chance of it getting in there
