9 Quality Blogs to Help Learn SEO

Feb 8, 2012 / by Andy Eliason

"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.
