Best Of B2B Search Marketing 2009
Articles and blog postings on B2B search marketing are often hard to find. At Search Engine Land, we’re fortunate to have a stable of experts who regularly contribute great content and make the Strictly Business column a success. But during the year, I’ve found a lot of other great content, too. I chose 30 of my favorite B2B search and internet marketing posts from 2009. To that I added three of my own articles that were especially popular or helpful to people. I know I’ve missed some great content. If you know of others, please add them via comments.
Just as the search landscape has changed greatly in 2009, so has the economic landscape. There are a lot of people hurting out there, many who never dreamed they would be in situation they are now. If you’ve been blessed this year, be thankful. And if you sense somebody in need, pay it forward.
