Must-Read Monday: Top 5 SEO Blogs You Aren't Reading
Sure, everyone whose interested in SEO has heard of the Moz Blog and Search Engine Land, but there are a plethora of different SEO blogs out there to choose from beyond those in the mainstream. You may not have heard of the following blogs, and they may have a smaller regular readership than the bigger blogs in the SEO world, but they still have much insight to share. The following are my top 5 blogs:
1. More Visibility
From basic SEO and user experience all the way to more advanced tactics for onsite, offsite, technical, and mobile SEO, this blog covers a range of SEO-specific topics. The content is always up to date with industry changes and best practices, and the authors take the time to thoroughly explain their points, often using screen shots and other images to help explain more difficult points.
2. Search Engine Journal
This blog has a ton of content! It covers a wider array of topics than some other industry blogs do. In addition to SEO tips and best practices, Search Engine Journal shares information about the search engines themselves, as well as social media, content marketing, paid search tactics, WordPress, and more. Since all of these topics are closely related to SEO, this blog acts as a one-stop-shop when you’re looking for information.
If you are a fan of KISSmetrics or Crazy Egg, then QuickSprout is the blog for you. Run by Neil Patel, this blog is made up of Neil’s own tests and experiments to help provide insight into SEO and content marketing. What makes these posts so great is they are primarily data-driven, each with detailed explanations of his findings and experience to back up his suggestions.
4. Search Engine Roundtable
This blog is heavily focused on search engines and updates in SEO best practices. Since we all know how often these things change, it’s great to find blogs that you know will be timely. The content ranges from basic tips and tools, all the way to decoding possible crawl issues and penalties. For those looking for information on the latest search engine news and algorithm updates, look no further than Search Engine Roundtable!
