Changing the world. One blog(ger) at a time.

Introducing… the Search Engine Marketing Search Engine!

Like many of us in the SEO/SEM/SMO game, I thought it was great when Lee Odden of TopRank recently released his OPML file of SEM blogs to the public. Yeah sure, I had a lot of the same feeds already, but the point was it really helped to round out the list of blogs in my newsreader, as well as introduce me to some great new blogs as well. Man, there are some talented and prolific bloggers out there doing search engine marketing!

Thinking further about how this list could help me most, I realised that as good as RSS feeds were, I also wanted to search these blogs, as well as the rest of the content of these sites, given that many of the blogs listed are a part of a much bigger site with laods more cool content (take seomoz, for example).

So what I really wanted, as a complement to the RSS feeds, was a search engine. And well, I went and built one (with a little help from our friends at Google). So now I can search the blogs and other site content of all the search engine marketing experts listed on Lee’s list… and so can you!

Have a go!

Enter a search term below to search Lee’s exclusive list of the top 260+ Search Engine Marketing blogs:

Add SEM Search to your site too!

SEM Search is powered by Google and if you know how to copy and page HTML code, you’ve got what it takes to add SEM Search to your own site. Simply copy and paste the exact code below (in its entirety) onto your page:

(If you see a P tag, it shouldn’t be there. WordPress keeps adding it in, and I’m not sure how to get rid of it at this moment…)

What sites does SEM Search include in its search results?

That’s Lee Odden’s decision, and his alone. All I am doing is maintaining the list of included sites to stay up-to-date with Lee’s list. (To the degree that until Lee decides he likes my own site, I’ve not even included that. So don’t come asking me to get included!)

So you’ll be keeping the search engine in sync with Lee’s list?

You betcha. Be sure to bookmark the SEM Search homepage, and if new HTML code is released, that’s where you’ll find it.

Enjoy!

    Hey Alister, that’s a pretty cool search engine! BTW, I update our list of blogs every Friday so watch the home page of toprankblog.com for that.

    Otherwise, the OPML file is updated daily.

    Oh, and BTW Alister, you’re in the queue for the next update. :)

    S.E.M. search is a good tool. You have an excellent SEO site. You might want to tell your subscribers about this great new SEO tool from Google. It is called Google Website Optimizer and can be found here at https://www.google.com/analytics/siteopt/exptlist?account=21700762
