Can’t get enough SEO news and tips? These 8 blogs are the giants of SEO: just about everyone reads them, and for good reason. If you’re starting out in SEO, they’ll help you hit the ground running. If you’re an SEO expert, these blogs will tell you about the most important changes in the industry as soon as they happen.
Search Engine Land

One of the most popular SEO blogs on the Internet, probably the most popular. No surprise, either: it was founded by Danny Sullivan in 2006, after he left the ultra-successful Search Engine Watch… which he also founded. Search Engine Land is big enough to have their own conference, Search Marketing Expo (SMX). They’re jam-packed with general industry news, with a special nod to neophytes. Unlike most blogs, Search Engine Land does an excellent job of categorizing their posts. If you just want to read their “How To SEO” articles, put on a fresh round of coffee and click the link at the top. As one of the big players, don’t expect any little known secrets here. (Doesn’t matter whether it was secret before… if it hits Search Engine Land, it’s not secret anymore.) However, you will get really solid advice that applies anywhere.

Also really well ranked. More of a traditional blog than Search Engine Land’s magazine style. True to their name, SEOBook specializes in long form posts. Sometimes really long. They don’t bother with general search engine news, either. SEOBook is strictly SEO industry. Expect interviews with top industry figures and fascinating case studies. Another blog whose archives will keep you reading all night long.

SEOMoz is one of the Internet’s best known SEO sites. Run by a software company, it’s been around since 2004. They’re known as much for their ‘Toolbox’ as they are for their blog. Their collection of online SEO tools is worth a bookmark alone. While you’re there, soak up the relaxed tone of the place — SEOMoz’s CEO once crowd-sourced his facial hair, having readers vote on how he should shave it before heading off to a conference. (He showed up bristly and unshaven, in keeping with the results of the vote.)

Matt Cutts’ blog is not like the others. There’s no team of writers here, just one guy. There’s also very little SEO advice. So, why is it on the list? Matt Cutts does a great job of pointing out not ways to boost your rankings, but ways to avoid dropping out of them. That’s Cutts’ specialty — he’s head of Google’s Webspam team. His job title alone is enough to get Cutts’ blog into the RSS readers of the entire SEO industry.
Search Engine Watch
Website Link : http://searchenginewatch.com/
The granddaddy of SEO blogs, this newspaper-styled site has been around since 1996. When the SEO industry was born, they were there reporting live on the scene. Search Engine Watch was founded by the same man who went on to do Search Engine Land, Danny Sullivan. Despite a few changes of ownership (they’re now part of Incisive Media), they’re still the SEO industry’s reference source. Even Matt Cutts calls them “a must read.”
Search Engine Roundtable

Search Engine Roundtable‘s specialty is reporting on the most interesting threads in SEO forums. They’ve been around since 2003, when they were founded by former Search Engine Watch writer Barry Schwartz. Their focus on forum news means Search Engine Roundtable is the place to pick up news that nobody else has spotted yet… and in plenty of technical — sometimes excruciatingly so — detail.
Search Engine Journal

Search Engine Journal is a little less known as the rest, though they still have a rock-solid reputation. Founded by Loren Baker in 2003, Search Engine Journal’s selling point is their writers: not professional reporters, but SEO professionals from around the industry. Expect to find details here that the pro blogs overlook.

TopRank – Online Marketing Blog is a digital marketing agency’s way of attracting customers. Judging by their tremendous popularity, they must be doing something right. TopRank has a mix of basic tips and industry-wide views. They’re oriented towards professional marketers, including those working in-house at companies. Their coverage of search and social media conferences is particularly good.
