Several years back, we asked some of the smartest marketers in the industry what their most-read marketing blogs were. We then shared their responses here and ran a poll so readers could vote for their favorites too. As of 2022, we’ve collected 1,372 votes—so we thought it apt to bring you the industry’s top 10 marketing blogs, 13 Best Marketing plus three bonus (personal) favorites of ours to round things off. What better way to start the list than with a not-so-subtle plug of our own blog? We topped the poll with 793 votes, and the fact that you’re reading this means the Ahrefs team must be doing something right.
If you’re new here
Our blog is split into four categories: SEO, marketing. Data and studies, and product updates. Have a look-see, then settle in for the ride—you’re bound to learn. Something new, no matter your company data level of expertise. HubSpot is a powerful SaaS platform and the champion of inbound marketing. We mean it literally: Founders Brian Halligan and. Dharmesh Shah coined the term “inbound” and even published a book on the topic. Over on the HubSpot blog, you’ll find in-depth articles, free templates, and marketing reports that are backed by surveys and expert opinions. We also highly recommend subscribing to The Hustle, a popular newsletter that HubSpot acquired in early 2021. Its coverage of business and tech news is at once snappy and concise—an ideal point of reference for anyone who wants to get better at writing.
Seth Godin is one
The most forward-thinking marketers around. He is also most famed for his novel ideas and concepts. One of them is the purple cow, which means building a Student Mobile List product or service that’s so remarkable people will literally remark on it. (Yep, very meta.) You’d do well following his daily blog posts too, 13 Best Marketing which often feature pithy or memorable anecdotes on being a better marketer. Glen Allsopp runs two blogs: Gaps and also Detailed. And while they’re quite different in their areas of focus, we thought it best to combine them to avoid repetition. Gaps.com covers mostly business-focused content and case studies on profitable niches.
