Great post and excellent comments.

According to Quantcast, MarketingHeadhunter.com gets >6000 uniques per month. And because I know how to write for search engines, this traffic is pretty well targeted. Between 85-90% of traffic comes from Google.

IMHO, blogs are an unbeatable lead gen tool. Fine with me if other recruiters don't get it. If there's a recession later this year, they'll wish they'd spent more time becoming findable.

blogs are a good place for spammers to fight their poor online image.

Interesting post, that’s for sure. But I think answering the question if they are useful or not is rhetorical. They apparently fulfill a deep human desire to express and be heard. No I’m not really following any particularly blogs because posts of value ripple over the internet like a tsunami….
Still in my own Research work I do find a lot of clues in my filtered blog results. There are positions I would not have filled without them. So my stand is not useless and something like the seasons “ they just are”

I respect the source of the comment but not the comment. AmyBeth, we discussed this at length, and I can only say that careers are made by the personal brand factor of blogs, passive talent research has benefited from blog searches, and above all else, to assume that all available information is done, that history has ended so to speak is either arrogant or wholly naive. We learn day. I learn from you, from all my peers in the recruitosphere and I learn from my toddler who educates me on sharing on compassion. If learning or value in worth has limits I would only admit it when my flesh is blue and cold.

I agree! I have a personal blog and a now work blog and I love reading way too may blogs. I learn more from reading and listening than I could have ever imagined I would!

Many people are reading blogs without knowing it, based on search results. I get a lot of first-time visitors from Google, and most of them aren't looking for blogs, they're looking for information. It just happens that they find it on a blog.

So, blogs matter to readers, whether they realize it or not. And blogs matter to bloggers, because people will find us, whether they're looking for us or not.

Well stated! I read ALOT of blogs, all recruitment/business related but I am recharged each day by listening to others stories.
