Top 40 SEO Blogs to Read in 2014

by Marvin Russell on January 3, 2014
 
Best SEO Blogs

These are the top 40 SEO blogs you should read in 2014. I spent over 10 hours researching, reading, and interviewing people in the SEO industry to narrow down the best SEO blogs. I was actually a little surprised to see that quality SEO blogs are very rare. Much of what I came across was pure crap that contained overly optimized articles that were written for the quantity of content, rather than the quality.

The top 40 SEO blogs aren’t solely based on my personal opinion. In fact, part of the reason I wrote this post was to find more and better resources. Here are some of the criteria I used when deciding whether or not to include the blog in this top 40 list.

  • Popularity (# of subscribers and overall brand recognition)
  • # of Twitter followers
  • Google Rank (for popular terms like “best SEO blog”, “top SEO blog”, “SEO blog”)
  • Time since last post
  • Quality of posts (case studies, visuals, how to’s)
  • Average # of article shares (Twitter, FB, Google+)

    Ahref and Open Site Explorer are the great tools which I used to check the
    backlinks of my competitors. No doubt all the tools which you mentioned in this post are pretty helpful for analyzing your backlinks, monitoring traffic as
    well as take measures for successful SEO. In 2014, it should be your priority
    to focus on quality rather than quantity because if you will ignore quality
    then it is most probably that your website will be treated as spam. So focus on contents and use white hat method for approaching on top.Check here

    Pretty nice list Marvin. I found a few new SEO sites to add to my Feedly. Congrats on connecting MySiteAuditor to Moz.

    You might want to pop over to OrbitMedia and consider adding Andy’s site to your compendium, although that might be a little to close to home?

    I like your “How to Sell SEO Like a Boss” piece you did on B2C and the Infographic wasn’t too bad either!

    • http://mysiteauditor.com/ Marvin Russell

      Hi Neil,

      Thanks for the comment and feedback. I know OrbitMedia. They are doing great things here in Chicago! Maybe I will connect with them in the future.

      I use feedly too!

      I’m glad you liked my “How to Sell SEO Like a Boss” post. Thats my main focus is selling digital marketing. After all, that’s what MySiteAuditor is all about :)

  • http://www.birdbrain.com.au Sukhpreet Kaur

    Great list, I follow some of them http://www.birdbrain.com.au/blog/6-awesome-seo-blogs-worth-reading/ and these are good enough to stay on top of the search results. Thanks Marvin :)

  • neha

    Yuppp………. i agree with you Sukhpreet….. This is a huge list. But the fact is by following these links we can only visit these blogs, which is not enough.
    Then what about the knowlegde of SEO, these blogs cannot provide us the training regarding SEO. So to get training in php, i am suggesting a SEO company (web9cloud), the best SEO company provides training. O r you guys can visit the website also as (web9cloud).

  • Neetu Lohia
