Aren’t SEO, website traffic, engagement and conversion one of the major ongoing battles for every website owner? Aren’t these things important to you?
I know these are an important aspect of online marketing to me. And, if these things are important to you also, you need to learn from the best and continue to learn today, and every day.
The rules of the game keep changing. What worked last year, doesn’t work this year. SEO is an ever evolving field and that is why I always want to keep up with the pros in this field.
A Few I Came To Admire Made It Into This List
In the sea of experts in the search engine marketing field, either you can follow anybody who claims to know all about SEO, or you can look for the fruit on their tree and then make your call.
People who have made it into this list are the people I admire, I follow and know that they know their stuff. You look at their Google Rank, their following on social media and activity levels and you know that these are real experts with real knowledge.
These people actively engage on Twitter and Google+ at least if not on every single social network.
These SEO Experts Are Bloggers (People), Not Companies
There are many great SEO blogs such as MOZ, Search Engine Journal, SEO Book etc. Those are great resources for learning SEO too. But that wasn’t my intention behind this post.
People who have made it into this list, are the people who run their blogs and personally engage on social media. While they may have a team supporting them, they take time to share their knowledge and represent their brand name.
The List Of Top 10 SEO Experts And Their Blogs
Okay, let’s get now with this list of top 10 SEO bloggers I think you should follow to learn SEO tips and tricks you can benefit from.

Neil always posts something of value. But, here are a few awesome SEO guides you might benefit from:
