Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) January 24, 2008
Junta42, a "digg-like" social bookmarking site focusing on content marketing, custom publishing and branded content, celebrated its launch by announcing the "Junta42 Top 42 Content Marketing Blogs". The list, which was composed by comparing several blogs' relation to content marketing, their post length/depth, regularity/frequency, overall content value and Google page rank, includes some of the best known marketing blogs, as well as up-and-comers on the verge of being discovered by the marketing community.
Junta42's mission is to help businesses learn how to create better content, thus maximizing their overall communications initiatives. To do so, Junta42 has created a framework of content marketing articles, white papers, tutorials and case studies -- all of which it makes available via various modes of content marketing (video, podcasts, social media applications, etc). Junta42's Top Content Marketing Blogs list is a natural extension of its overarching goal of exposing great content.
"The Top 42 Content Marketing Blogs is an invaluable list for any marketing professional who needs to learn how their business can attract and retain customers by producing great content," stated Joe Pulizzi, founder and chief content officer for Junta42. "While some of the Top 42 do not focus entirely on content marketing or custom publishing, all of them, in some way, help teach marketers how to create, distribute and market content through diverse forms of media."
The top five blogs include:
1. Straight Talk with Nigel Hollis, Millward Brown's Chief Global Analyist
2. Web Ink Now from Successful Author and Speaker David Meerman Scott
3. Conversation Agent from Valeria Maltoni, a Leading Author and Marketing Thought Leader
4. Marketing Interactions from Ardath Albee, Founder of the Marketing Consultancy of the Same Name
5. Buzz Marketing for Technology from Paul Dunay, Director of Global Field and Interactive Marketing for BearingPoint
Other top blogs include Copyblogger by Brian Clark (#7), Seth Godin (#37) and Guy Kawasaki (#59).
