Segmentation is an issue. There really needs to be a way to group (circle) or tag people so you can have lists. It's also time for IG to add app functionality to the web if it's going to become convenient for brands to use.

10 months ago on Link Building Techniques That STILL WORK!
@markwschaefer You crack me up Mark :) Sure, this post says link building, but we know better.
This is about creating content experiences that inspire actions. Linking is just one of those actions. SEOs can chase the links and that's fine. There's no tricking that I can see.
The intentional creation of information and media experiences like these examples based on target audience insight is the win. The result extends far beyond links and social shares.
I'm so glad to have met you Shonal and I love that you shared your story and such sage advice to "just do it".

1 year, 8 months ago on Nine take-a-ways from Lee Odden’s Optimize
I've been included and excluded from many, many blog lists over the past 8 years - interpretation and discussion are a very good thing when it comes to such lists because they are so subjective whether scored by people or software.
When I'm not happy with a list I make one of my own as I did when ClickZ posted a list of social media rockstars with very few women included. I responded with "25 Women Who Rock Social Media", two years running (we're due for another) and those posts have been some of the most popular we've ever published.
One thing in the post above that made me do a double take, was this: "...technically folks like Chris Brogan, Lee Odden (Online Marketing Blog), Jason Falls’ Social Media Explorer and Jason Keath’s Social Fresh don’t cover PR or marketing"
Chris, Jason and Jason can speak for themselves, but for Online Marketing Blog, marketing with a PR slant is exactly what we cover - for 8 years. Maybe the sky is pink and sugar is sour too :)
I actually did an analysis of referring keyword traffic to the top 10 of Cision's list to see how the most powerful list on the web "Google" perceived these blogs. The word clouds speak for themselves: http://tprk.us/Rjj1bw with a huge "MARKETING" in the Online Marketing Blog word cloud.
That keyword data is only from the past 180 days or so, but we've been covering a mix of marketing, PR, social and search longer than the vast majority of blogs in the category today. For another view, I found that "PR" or "Public Relations" are terms included in over 2,400 posts. "marketing" is included in over 3,300 posts. I'm just not seeing the same thing as you are Arik, nor is Google. Search for "online PR" or "online marketing" for example.
Calling Online Marketing Blog a site that doesn't really cover marketing or PR is simply a mis-characterization.
