How do you know an industry is maturing?

It gets its own trade magazine.

Such is the case with the Search Engine Marketing Industry, which this year is getting its very own “Search Engine Marketing Standard” magazine which will be published on a quarterly basis.

Right now, residents of the USA can get a free 1-year subscription through International subscriptions are only $20 USD/year.

The first issue is being published in May. I’m looking forward to reading it.

Matt is the co-founder of SitePoint, 99designs and Flippa. He lives in Vancouver, Canada.

    Subscribed to this a while ago. It’s another project of the same guys that sell the AdWatcher ROI tracker / fraud monitoring software.

    is it worthwhile to subscribe? since I’m not in US, I’ll have to pay for it. so is it worth the buck or just another one of those idiotic search engine marketing bulletins?

  • Dan Grossman

    Won’t know til they start publishing it. I’m not very hopeful considering the commercial nature of other things these guys have written (they try to push their own product a lot). I subscribed because it’s free.

  • asp_funda

    yeah, free subscription is always taken up!! ;) I guess I’ll just wait & see what they come up with their first issue!! :)

    Why look forward to it? Search google for ‘search marketing magazine’ and they’re nowhere to be seen – so what makes these guys such experts? :P


    are you getting this magazine? what do you think? is it worth $15/year? are there other better resources for same or less?

    how does it compare to say, revenue which includes some stuff about seo. really, what’s your (and anyone’s) honest opinion now that it’s not free and they should have a few issues under their belts.
