5 Best Internet Marketing Blogs To Follow


If you want to learn internet marketing fast and keep your knowledge up to date, then you need to follow these 5 internet marketing blogs.

NeilPatel.com & QuickSprout.com

I put these two together because they are run by the same person – Neil Patel and the information on both blogs is rather similar. The posts are really long and go really in depth, it’s not your light read type of blog where you come to get a single tip or idea, you come here to get deep on a topic.

These blogs cover all kinds of internet marketing topics, but mostly it goes around content marketing. A recent series of posts covered how Neil built a $100,000 a month revenue generating blog in 12 months from scratch. Something you would like to achieve yourself?

Then give it a read it’s full of actionable tips and it’s very inspiring to see that there aren’t really any secrets just hard work to get to the top.

When you read Neil’s posts you can be sure that you are getting the current information and not some out of date advice that wasn’t even put to the test in the real world. Just by following Neil’s blogs you will have plenty to read throughout the week because the amount of content it’s produced here is massive. He also started a podcast recently that you should also check out.


I have been reading this blog almost from the very beginning. The charm of this blog is that it publishes complete tutorials that could be easily packaged as online courses and made money off, but here you get them for free.

For example, the Fiverr tutorial, which I used to start my own freelancing gigs on Fiverr and had pretty good success with them, I published a case study as a guest post there as well.

Then there’s this tutorial for starting your freelance writing career that I wanted to try out, but never found the time.

And then there’s this tutorial for how to build an internet marketing list at which I have failed miserably spending hundreds of dollars on solo ads. Dunno maybe I’m just unlucky with this.

And there are much more tutorials just like these that give you a plan from start to finish that if implemented can help you make money.

I really admire the transparency of Matthew. Every single month he publishes an income report where he details out what he has done for the month to grow the blog, he shares a little about his personal life, which I enjoy so you know there’s a real person behind this and he also shares all his traffic and income numbers.

Not only that, but he also publishes a round-up of income reports that currently covers 16 blogs that publish regular income reports. For me, they serve as motivation and they show what is possible to achieve.

SmartBlogger.com by Jon Morrow

I’m not that much of a fan of the blog, but I’m definitely a fan of Jon Morrow’s writing. What do I mean by that?

Well, smart blogger has plenty of guest posts and they are definitely top notch, back in the day when they were publicly accepting guest posts their requirements were sky high.

Back to Jon Morrow the first time I landed on one of his blog posts I felt like he really knows my struggles and knows where I’m at, funny kinda. I bookmarked the post for future reference.

Then I land on another post full of golden nugget information I was looking for. Bookmarked again.

And that just kept happening. I’m not sure if he is that good or I just found him at the right time, but I do believe every single blogger can benefit by reading his stuff. Jon also guest posts a lot so you can find him on other top blogs in the industry.

Backlinko.com by Brian Dean

You won’t find a lot of blog posts on this blog nor is it updated a lot, but what you find might change how you do SEO forever. The blog only has 33 posts published and is generating 150k visitors a month.

Brian is probably best known for coming up with the Skyscraper Technique which is used for ranking on the first page of Google. It’s not easy to pull it off, but if done right it can bring you those results.

You can also find other incredible blog posts like “Here’s What We Learned About SEO” where I guess his SEO team analysed 1 million search results to figure out what makes them rank on Google. It’s definitely not something an average blogger can pull off.

So, make sure to follow this blog, you won’t get a lot to read here, but when you do it’s going to be worth your time.


SumoMe firstly is a business that develops content marketing plugins for WordPress. They absolutely realise the power of content marketing and are putting it to practice without half-assing it.

Just take a look at their recent blog post about how they built a 50,000 following on Instagram in under 3 months. This guide is so massive they had to divide it into chapters.

I liked a series of posts that every author of the blog wrote how they would start a blog from scratch, which I think a lot of people want to learn. Here’s one example of that to read. There are many perspectives from different authors that you can find.

You will find a lot of case studies around here, it’s stuff that they tested out in their company and decided to share and it’s really fun to read because you can see the numbers behind everything.

Wrapping It Up

Even though the information on these blogs is top notch, you are still only getting a puzzle piece at a time with each blog post. Eventually, you will put those pieces together into a full system that works for you, but why wait? Check out Kingged’s internet marketing system that’s simple and brings results: Click here!


  1. Hi Liudas:

    RE:Backlinko.com by Brian Dean

    Can’t say enough good things about Backlink.com

    Great in depth info on link popularity. Another site with a similar focus is Alex Becker’s Source Wave at http://source-wave.com/tag/backlinking/

    The free video tutorials are excellent.

    The key with all of these sites which have deep levels of information and resources is to take one strategy or resource and expand on it through an extensive blog post.

    Always, give public credit (thru hyperlink) to the original source that inspired you.

    Thanks for your post.

  2. Hey Ludas:

    Great post! I would say all those blogs are outstanding Ludas, I don’t know if they are the “5 Best” I basically look at Sumome more or less as a product.And they definitely are doing a great job because it seems like there’s an email from them in the inbox every week.

    I am subscribed to both Quicksprout and Matthew Woodward’s blogs and they both do a phenomenal job in their chosen expertise, content and Seo.

    I have checked out Jon Morrow’s blog but as you mentioned he has a lot of guest bloggers. Let me suggest two of my favorites who are “knocking it out the park” Ileane Smith’s Basicblogtips and Ramsay’s Blogtyrant each have thorough detailed tutorials and step by step guides. Of course everybody has their favorites in the blogosphere.

    Thanks for sharing that valuable post and have a great day.

  3. Hey Liudas,

    I agree with you that these marketing blogs can help increase knowledge and skill for the Internet marketers. The owners of these blogs regularly provide real life practical tips that can be easily implemented. If you ask me, I will add Jeff Bullas, CopyBlogger, and Search Engine Journal!

  4. Hi Liudas,

    This is a short but helpful list. At least, for those of us who are still learning the ropes of Internet marketing, these blogs would keep us motivated from time to time! Thanks for sharing this!

  5. Like with anything “best” is subjective and like you said, it all depends on what resonates with you.

    I like Ilene from Basic Blog Tips, Kim Roach, Andrew Hansen, Ryan Deiss, and Frank Kern.

    I’ve read blog posts on all the sites you mentioned except Smart Blogger. Out of the list, I like Backlinko and Neil Patel the best although sometimes you have to take what Neil says with a grain of salt sometimes.

    But everyone has their critics and at the end of the day you have to ask yourself if you’re given value by these blogs. If not move on to the next one.

    Good post Liudas!

  6. Hi Luidas

    Its informative knowing more about these Internet marketing blogs. Indeed, they can help bloggers gain direction on the basics of blogging.

    Personally, I follow Brian Dean, Tom Ewer, Tom Ferris, Neil Patel, Jon Morrow, John Chow, Guy Kawasaki, and some others who may not come readily on my mind now.

    These are bloggers that have proven over time that one can succeed online if a defined process and quality of purpose are perfected in a blog!

  7. Hi Liudas,

    As far as I’m concerned, Neil Patel is the best internet marketer alive. The other guys are also doing great stuff but they still come behind Neil.

    He publishes highly valuable content on his blogs on a daily basis. He also publishes guest posts regularly on sites like Huffington Post, Entrepreneur and Forbes.

    Me charges $5000 for an hour of consultation and $25000 for speaking engagement. Can you beat that?

    This guy sure knows what he’s doing.

  8. These are some great websites to follow because they are always coming out with some great new FREE information in their blogs.

    You can really learn alot just from following the blogs and not buying any of the products. But eventually, it would get pretty tempting to see what their products can do for you. Knowledge can help you grow your website to new heights, and I think thees websites can provide someone with that kind of info.

    Thanks for sharing!

  9. Hi Liudas,

    This is a post full of information, not only in the post but the blog links you have provided. This will be of great interest to me going forward, I love learning and now I have huge new information sources thanks to your post.

    “Knowledge is power. Information is power”. (Robin Morgan)

    I particularly like the look of Matthew Woodwards blog, I will spend some time looking over this today.

    Have a great day.

  10. Hi Liudas,

    Excellent post. I especially appreciate the way you present your valuable blog.

    The web is filled with Internet marketing bloggers – some of them great and some of them recycled and don`t provide real value. However I found this particularly interesting because I need to learn from the well-know experts in internet marketing.

    Thanks so much.

  11. Hi Ludas,

    Thank you for your recommendations and I will be sure to check them out. I also want to check out the blogs that Darrell recommend in his comment on this article.

    I am starting a blog so the recommended post about starting a blog from scratch definitely looks interesting. I will be sure to check that one out first.

    Take care and have a great week!


  12. Hi Liudus
    I like lists that keep to short numbers; 5 in this case, so thanks for that. I’m familiar with 3 of those blogs you mentioned, especially Mathew Woodward. I believe that to be successful with the email building tutorial he had as a guest post you would need to throw a lot of money at it before you got enough subscribers to start geting a return.

    Certainly copying or at least taking ideas from succesful people makes an awful loy of sense and eases the journey to IM success.

    Thanks for sharing

  13. I just thought I would add a blog to your list. It’s run by a guy in New Zealand and his posts are full and informative and are also often like tutorials. It’s called http://www.onlinedimes.com/

    Another one is http://jenssteyaert.com/. He’s gone off at a tangent trying to start his own crypto currency but his older blog posts were also complete and read like tutorials.
