9 Quality Blogs to Help Learn SEO

“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.” – Walt Disney

I began working with SEO.com just before Christmas so I’m pretty new to the SEO game. I’ve basically learned that the only way to start grasping SEO is to jump right in to it. So I have put together a list of blogs that are serving as valuable teaching tools. My hope is that anyone new to SEO can benefit from this list just like I have.

1. The SEOmoz Blog

Featuring Rand Fishkin as the lead contributor, the SEOmoz blog is beneficial to readers with any level of knowledge. It has a basic,  informative guide to learning SEO, and also manages to stay on the cutting edge of the industry. This site also features Rand’s famous White Board Friday series. White Board Friday is video blog that addresses current issues with SEO each week.


2. Marketing Pilgrim Blog

    Thanks for the list! I have been subscribing to most of these for some time. There was one on there that I hadn’t heard of (Pilgrim) but I will be sure to follow from now on.

    A few more that are in my feed list are:

    http://www.johnfdoherty.com/ – Excellent stuff
    http://searchenginewatch.com/ – Surprised this one didn’t make the list.

    And of course http://darklit.net .

    Well, that last one is mine. It’s not updated enough to be super useful to most :( But hey, if you want to follow it…

    The other three though I HIGHLY recommend :)
