On this last day of the year, I thought I'd take a look at  BlogGrader  to find the posts that have generated the most discussion on the HubSpot Blog this year.

The list, posted below, surprised me.

I thought it would be all posts about social media and Twitter. It's not. It's actually a good balance of conversations about SEO, blogging and social media.

Still, there is one thread that runs through all of these articles: They're all about getting found by customers, not finding and interrupting customers.

That's a big deal. People aren't talking about finding customers with cold calling and direct mail. They're talking about creating content, optimizing it and sharing it so that customers find them.

They're talking about  inbound marketing .

Keep that in mind for 2009.
