SEO – a guide to the blogs

At some point during the search for knowledge regarding search engine optimization and online marketing, most website owners will start searching through the SEO blogs. This is a good idea to do right from the start.

SEO blogs often cover many more topics than just “SEO”. SEO blogs often reach into every aspect of online marketing, which is very fitting considering most SEO’s also play their hand on mediums of traffic on the internet other than organic search engine traffic.

What makes a good SEO blog?

The main ingredient is high quality, unique information. Interesting enough, these traits are also shared by good websites in general.

This list covers just about every truly SEO related blog that I is high enough quality for me to recommend. I sincerely apologize if I left off your relevant useful SEO related blog. Contact me, and I will add it if it is relevant. There are also a ton of other great online marketing blogs that don’t touch enough on SEO, for them to be on the list, so maybe another day for them.
