Seth Godin’s Web 2.0 Traffic Watch List

My interest in social media has evolved substantially over the past year.

My love for social networking sites is not something new, but my appreciation for blogging and social bookmarking sites certainly are.

As I mentioned in my recent post, Social Networking Site Catalog, “I launched this blog to share my passion for online social networking and my experiences at social networking sites. I never intended to assemble a catalog. There are already too many good ones out there.”

One of the world’s top marketers and author of marketing books, Seth Godin, provides a catalog of 952 top social media sites, Seth Godin’s Web 2.0 Traffic Watch List. It can help you know what’s hot and what’s not.

Here are the top ten from Seth’s list as I write this:


Put content in the right places, and you will attract other users and search engines like a magnet. If you’re into marketing, that’s exactly what you want.

    If I may Larry… I’d like to add “right” in front of “content”. Unless, of course, you don’t mind the nasty google paper trail that follows you around!

    I see many people leaving spammy content or un-optimized (is that a word?) content on some really powerful sites and not getting the results they desire.

    I was giving my readers the benefit of the doubt, but you make a good point Malika.

    And, as long as we’re commenting on this post, let me add Ning Social Networking Sites to the list of social media sites. It looks to me like Ning is gaining momentum.

    I also have my list of top social bookmarking/article submission sites, although there may be hundreds of them, I only submit to 50 sites on a regular basis, and stay active on just 10 of them. This is because I prefer quality over quantity.

    Our new Safety Destination site is designed to encompass everything you associate with the word “Safety”. Whether a Safety Professional, a Concerned Parent, a Consumer concerned about Product Safety, or a general a Safety Citizen… all can be a part of growing this important online Safety Community.

    As time has gone by since this was initially published, I would put MySpace and Orkut considerably further down the list in 2011.

    Its interesting to review the list and eyeball some of the more obvious changes in the ranks in terms of who has gained more traction with users and who’s fallen back or disappeared.

    Seth Godin is one of my favorite marketing authors, one thing I went to point out though if you plan in using Wikipedia as a medium, you may just want to use your brand or website’s URL as a reference rather than creating a marketing spot within the site.
