Digital Marketing Blogs I Love: Psychology, SEO, Data, UX and Other Smart Cookies
Some of my favourite Digital Marketing Blogs
Whilst this list is just a collection of some of my favourite (mostly) work related blogs I hope some of you will find new reading material to peruse whilst supping at your favourite caffeinated beverages.
I’d also love you to recommended me more smart blogs I should add to Pulse.
There’s quite a range here, though my faves tend to be Psychology or Data focussed.
Fantastic, in-depth, resourceful posts (usually with great stats and examples) that give actionable recommendations for improving conversions.

Analytics & Data Analysis Blogs
Mine That Data – Kevin Hillstrom
A real strong focus on Catalog Marketers & eCommerce, but so much to learn for everybody else from this blog. Understand your target audience segments. Please.

MagiC Bean Lab – Mat Morrison
Super smart social media data analysis and usually pretty charts to accompany insights that aren’t always what you’d expect.

Digital Marketing Blogs
He doesn’t just understand Social Media ROI. He wrote THE book on Social Media ROI. Not just all unicorns and rainbows, Olivier can help you understand how to embed social as part of your business.
- The Brandbuilder Blog | RSS | Follow @thebrandbuilder
A social science take on social media. A lot of brain food comes out of this blog whether you agree or not, it gets you thinking. I like that.
- Brian Solis’ Site | RSS | Follow @briansolis
Some of the best digital marketing advice I ever got, I got from here. Smart Insights and Dave Chaffey got me through my uni course with flying colours. Thanks. :)
- Smart Insights Blog |RSS | Follow @SmartInsights
Almost too much great content comes out of SEOMoz, all very “whitehat” and actionable. Whilst it may not always give you the whole picture (spammers are still winning) I love the time saving hacks and community.
- SEOMoz Site | RSS | Follow @SEOMoz
One of the strongest linkbuilders I know. Busts his balls to share amazing content, regularly and consistently manages to surprise me with new ways of doing things. Great guy to boot.
- John Doherty’s SEO Blog | RSS | Follow @dohertyjf
Another SEO company that regularly generates great content with actionable tips and downloads. Learnt a lot about Excel and myself because of this blog. Highly recommended.

Writings That Make Me Think About The World Differently
Now for something completey different. Paul gets under the skin of public sector data, websites and mobile technology. His writing makes me think about the web in a myriad of different ways. Often political too. Very interesting.

In Over Your Head
I’ve only really come across this blog recently, but several posts have made me question how much more transparent and engaging I could be online.
- In Over Your Head | RSS | Follow @julien
James shares and discusses; mobile, comic, film and above all else how tech integrates with real life. I always look forward to his Five Things on Friday too. A must-follow.

User Experience & Web Design
The UX Booth
UX Booth for me seems to be leading the way in understanding User Experience and their perspective in design. A great community producing a wealth of ‘mazing content.
- UXBooth Site | RSS | Follow @UXBooth
Often written in a more personable/fun manner than most of the other UX/Designer blogs I look at. UXmag have great visuals and back up the majoirty of points with great case examples. Awesome.
- UX Magazine Site | RSS | Follow @UXmag
Personally I love smashing mag for its typography and usability sections. But there is so much awesome there you can’t dismiss much of their stuff (although for me responsive needs to shush for a bit).
- Smashing Mag Site | RSS | Follow @smashingmag
Has loads of resources and actionable tips for people who need to cheat at design (yup, I shouldn’t be allowed crayons – let alone photoshop).
