Nowadays everybody is an online-guru which makes it a bit harder to find informational sources to trust online. www.entrepreneur.com came up with a handy list of 50 Favorite Online-Marketing Influencers of 2014.

When it comes to determining the “top 50” of anything, there are any number of variables that can come into play. Some of the ones I considered for this list included:

  • Usefulness and reliability of blog and social-media posts
  • Advanced knowledge in one or more areas of online marketing
  • Size of audience
  • Level of engagement on their blog or social media
  • Ability to create and sustain a sense of community with their audience
  • Awards received
  • Books written

he following are my 50 favorite online-marketing influencers of 2014:

1. Neil Patel is a web analytics and conversion expert, and founder of Crazy Egg, Kissmetrics and Quick Sprout.

2. Matt Cutts doesn’t normally make it onto these lists, but there’s no doubt he’s near the top in terms of online influence. He’s the star of Google’s Webmaster videos and current head of Google’s Webspam team.

3. John Rampton is president at Adogy, editor at large of Search Engine Journal and a frequent contributor to Entrepreneur.com and Huffington Post.
