The Blog Tree: New Growth Includes Simple Marketing Blog!

The Blog Tree: New Growth Includes Simple Marketing Blog!
Joy! Simple Marketing Blog has been included in a magnificent visualization [aka infographic] titled The Blog Tree: New Growth created by Eloqua, and the brilliant JESS3 about business bloggers.

The infographic brilliantly simplifies how the ~70 blogs offer meaning and relate to one another. It's a brilliant combination for discovering fresh resources!

I invite you to visit the JESS3 blog article about The Blog Tree: New Growth.  It takes you through the various iterations that led to the final Blog Tree visualization.

Interestingly, Edelman’sBlogLevel measurement tool was used to identify, evaluate and spotlight "young blogs that stand out in a saturated blogosphere by consistently producing remarkable content." As I learned during a recent demonstration, BlogLevel paints a more holistic picture of influence or remarkableness because it examines frequency of posts, subscribers, SEO value and more, rather than only focusing on traffic and inbound links.

Per the press release,

"Like its predecessor, the New Growth edition of The Blog Tree explores the relationship between marketing, technology and data visualization bloggers, envisioning blogs as leaves on various branches and rooted by high traffic news and technology blogs. The new tree is made up of about 70 fresh blogs – those that were introduced after January 1, 2009 – to recognize their achievement in earning trust, influence and popularity in a mature and crowded market."

I can't describe how thrilled - and honored - I am that Simple Marketing Blog has been included.

At the same time, I'd like to call attention to the other blogs included. They represent brilliance and intense inspiration and include several wonderful online friends, too!

By the way, if you would like to have your blog considered for the next iteration of The Blog Tree, visit the Eloqua Facebook Page and tag yourself in the image.
