Internet marketing firm TMA E-Marketing has launched a new business blog directory, dubbed iblogbusiness.com. An alternative to Google Blog Search and Yahoo Search Blog, the directory is divided into 32 business categories, which one can click on to find related blogs and content. It is a new site, so there is still much work to be done. It is interesting, however, and points to the growing importance of businesses adding a blog to their site. Not only do blogs help business move up in organic search rankings, but they can also provide important information to browsers thinking of investing in a new product or service. Brand awareness is another important benefit to business blogs and now there is another portal for exposure.
Iblogbusiness.com continues to grow and will soon be adding a podcast search feature and RSS feeds. On the site, you can register your blog for consideration and inclusion in the directory - and why not? It can't hurt. While new and unrefined, it's a site worth checking out and keeping tabs on in the future.
