Here’s today’s column, originally published in MediaPost where there are a number of comments, including a few disagreements and some new sites mentioned which I’m trying out. Feel free to share your own thoughts here or there. Whenever I’m talking to marketers about how to listen to their brands, blog search engines always come up […]
