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?

Top 10 SEO Bloggers To Follow For Tips Tricks And SEO Strategies

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.

1. Neil Patel

Blog: http://www.quicksprout.com/blog/
Twitter: @neilpatel
Google+: https://plus.google.com/112759904453577892472/

I already posted about him in my earlier post about top entrepreneurs to follow. But, I wanted to make sure I mention about Neil’s blog when we talk about SEO strategies, powerful traffic generation tactics  — because what he does makes him one of the best in this arena.

He certainly deserves another mention in this post when we are talking about the experts in the world of SEO.

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

2. Matt Cutts

Blog: http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/
Twitter: @mattcutts
Google+: https://plus.google.com/+MattCutts/

In case you don’t know Matt Cutts yet, he is currently the head of Google’s Webspam team. Matt shares what’s happening in the Google’s world with respect to SEO, answers questions and advises what’s good and what’s not so good SEO practice.

Once in a while, Matt’s blog updates create a lot of buzz in the SEO world and he is somebody you should definitely follow if you would like to keep up with Google and search engine optimization in general on a regular basis.

Now, I am not going to publish “all-time hits” from his blog for the nature of his blog. But, here are recent two posts from Matt that you want to see:

3. Rand Fishkin

Blog: http://moz.com/rand/
Twitter: @randfish
Google+: https://plus.google.com/+RandFishkin/

Rand Fishkin calls himself as the Wizard of Moz as he writes in his bio. And now you probably know that he is one of the co-founders of Moz. Moz started up in 2004 as an SEO consulting company and is now looked up to as one of the most reputed names in the SEO industry.

Well, Rand blogs as Moz and engages with his readers. He shares a log of great information in his posts and I want to share some I liked the most. So, here are my favorites from Rand:

4. Jon Morrow

Blog: http://boostblogtraffic.com/
Twitter: @JonMorrow
Google+: https://plus.google.com/u/0/+JonMorrow/

Jon Morrow is one of my favorite bloggers and true to his fame, he delivers some incredible content in his unique style. Well, first of all, I am his admirer for the sheer amount of inspiration he is for me and a lot of people through his life. Learn more about him and his challenges to get inspired.

Jon is not an SEO services person, but he is an incredible coach for building a blog online, building your influence online and making it happen. Here are a couple of posts from Jon’s treasure for your reference:

5. Bruce Clay

Blog: http://www.bruceclay.com/blog
Twitter: @BruceClayInc
Google+: https://plus.google.com/108709924006660387529/

Bruce Clay is founder and president of Bruce Clay, Inc. (BCI), a global Internet marketing optimization firm.  BCI has its own set of SEO tools and they also do training. As an industry thought leader, Bruce is an accomplished speaker, author and educator.

On the blog, there are multiple authors and you can connect any of them, although I only refer to Bruce since he is the founder.

A couple of interesting posts from Bruce Clay’s website that I enjoyed going through, I would like to share with you as a reference as well:

6. Anna Hoffman

Blog: http://www.trafficgenerationcafe.com
Twitter: @AnaTrafficCafe
Google+: https://plus.google.com/+AnaHoffman/posts

Anna Hoffman is a well-respected brand name when we talk about traffic generation. She shares very unique insights into all aspects of online business development and especially in SEO strategies. I have picked up so many great tips from Anna and implemented and enjoyed the rewards.

If you want to take your website’s traffic to the next level, you do want to follow Anna and her sage  advice. You will be amazed how much progress you can make with the education you get through her.

And now, it’s a difficult task for me to choose two from her all incredible posts. So, here is my attempt:

7. Bill Slawski

Blog: http://www.seobythesea.com
Twitter: @bill_slawski
Google+: https://plus.google.com/+BillSlawski/

Bill Slawski is the president of SEO by the Sea, an SEO services company. Bill has been engaged in professional SEO and internet marketing consulting for more than a decade and shares some very interesting information with regard to search marketing at this blog.

Yes, I do have a couple of blog posts to share with you from Bill’s SEO by the Sea blog as well. So, here you go:

8. Nick Eubanks

Blog: http://www.seonick.net/seo
Twitter: @nick_eubanks
Google+: https://plus.google.com/+NickEubanks/

Nick Eubanks has an interesting story. He comes from a financial background, but turned around his career to build a business around SEO which has thrived over the years.

Although Nick has helped companies of all sizes, including Thomson Reuters, Morgan Stanley, IBM, and Comcast etc., he shares a few great tips and tricks about search engine optimization, traffic techniques and all sort of things about online marketing.

You may enjoy a couple of these posts which I found very valuable:

9. Jason Acidre

Twitter: @kaiserthesage
Google+: https://plus.google.com/+JasonAcidre/

Jason Acidre is a Manila-based Search Strategist who blogs at KaiserTheSage and shares a lot of great information about SEO and online marketing related topics.

The blog is Jason’s personal journal as he shares. But, this journal can be a source of great information for you as a blogger, as an online marketer. Here are a couple of my favorite blog posts from Jason:

10. Andy Beal

Blog: http://www.marketingpilgrim.com/
Twitter: @AndyBeal
Google+: https://plus.google.com/+AndyBeal1/

    Hi Kumar,
    You’ve really done your homework here, and with a lot to look at. Note to self: Set aside time to read these links. ;)
    I thought I would compare your list to this one http://www.poweredbysearch.com/top-seo-tools-experts-use/
    and not surprising, they are all different. There are many, many SEO experts, and they all have their unique insights to share. This link I’ve provided should also pique your curiosity Kumar, as I know you are always interested in learning as much as possible.

    Have an awesome week!

      Hi Bill,

      Thanks for sharing that link. I think this list has a few names I am familiar with but never followed. Thus, I also write a note to self: Get to know these people and follow them.

      Yeah, we all are a work in progress and so are these experts. All we are trying to do is to learn from their experience and short cut the time it would otherwise take to experience the same thing personally to gain the same knowledge.

      Regards,

    Kumar,

    The folks you just mentioned here are quite great in what they do, no doubts. I have previosuly also had the pleasure of taking a look at their work and must agree that they are truly worthy of mention.

    However, I personally have come to the conviction also that knowledge gained via thorough experimentation serves the best purpose because the Internet has no one answer and situations are diverse in every niche…what works for them may never hold true for me…I therefore hardly bother with their advice.

    …So I will advice anyone who is interested in lasting in the blogosphere.

    Always,
    Terungwa

    • Twitter:
      That is true Akaahan. I agree that your situations and different from mine and/or these experts and so we need to pay attention to our own individual situations.

      Sure! But doesn’t that apply in every aspect of life? I mean you and me still went to schools and learnt math and science from our teachers even though that knowledge didn’t apply exactly the same way into our lives (and some of it didn’t ever get applied at all)?

      Personal experiments are good thing. But, I don’t want to make the same mistake Neil Patel made to find out that it is a mistake. My philosophy is, if somebody tells me there is a pothole there, I don’t want to try it myself and fall into it to gain experience :-)

      What do you say about that?

      Cheers!

        Most brilliant logic, I must say.

        However, your analogy is a bit faulty – at least in my estimation.

        We aren’t supposed to learn ‘general practice’ from these ‘gurus’ like we learnt in school. What they teach is specific…more like: “if you must be successful, you must be a lawyer!”

        Now, if my grade teacher had said that, I would have vehemently disagreed! Do you get my point?

        Always,
        Terungwa

        • Twitter:

          Actually, no :-)

          I am not sure why you would take your teacher’s guidence in a generic sense while anybody else’s teachings as a ‘specific’ instruction. That isn’t fair, is it?

          I don’t think these people are any less educated than most reachers in schools. They also know that your business and your situation is different than mine and theirs. I don’t think any of these leaders teach anything “specifically”. What they say is to be taken in a general sense and applied with common sense as I take it.

          I guess what I am suggesting to you is, unless you pay them money to be specific to your situation, even they know that they can’t give you exact instruction. So, I do not agree with you when you say that they tell you to do something you must do. Besides, don’t you and I write in our posts and use the word “must” many times? I think we all use that word in one or the othre way and so, we should be also apply the same logic when we see others use that word, right? :-)

    Hi Kumar,

    In the first instance I was surprised to see Matt Cutts on your list. He’s an insider :-) But then I re-read the title of the blog, and including him here makes sense. Why is Matt just No 2 is a mistery to me, but that’s not important :)

    I also noticed a name I was surprised to see here, but I won’t reveal the name. This part of the comment is a negative one.

    I wish I could add some more names, but SEO isn’t on my list since 2008 or ’09. Anyway, I was considering to add SEO back, so your post came at the right time. Thank you!

      Hi Adrian,

      One disclaimer that probably I should have made in the beginning somewhere is ,”This list isn’t an ordered list.”

      That means, who came to my mind first at the time of writing this, got the first spot. It doesn’t mean that are the greatest blogger :-)

      I think adding SEO will be a good thing. Now, does that mean I can look forward to hearing more from you on SEO in the near future?

      Thanks,

        Nope, not in the near future. Within the next month I can read tons of SEO articles, but that won’t make me already a good SEO-er. You know, usually I don’t write articles about topics I don’t know very well. Well, at least this is what I think LOL

  4. Hi Kumar,

    SEO is an ever changing concept. And I must admit that I’m not a master, when it comes to SEO. So, keeping this in mind, I make it a point to follow some influential bloggers, who are well versed in SEO and its related aspects.

    As I went through your list, I came upon some familiar names and some new ones. I see my favorite 3 bloggers mentioned here. They are- Neil Patel, Jon Morrow and Rand Fishkin. They all are authoritative figures in SEO field.

    They consistently churn out top quality content that teaches me something new each time! Talking about the new names that I came upon here, I’ll sure start following them too!

    Thanks for providing links to their sites and social profiles. :)

    Hi Kumar,

    That’s a wonderful list indeed of all the SEO gurus :)

    Honestly speaking, I’ve yet to buy any software and apply the real SEO techniques as I hardly know much of all that, except the little I do, thanks to Google’s free tool. And I’m glad that SEO has changed over time and there’s more of variation and writing naturally that’s taking shape now – better for us I’d say.

    I know most of the bloggers you mentioned like Jon, Ana, Neil and a few others, though the rest I’d surely be checking out. Always good to pick up from those who are experts in their field, isn’t it?

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice week ahead :)

    I know that maybe I should pay closer attention to SEO, but I don’t – I am so busy focusing on my writing that there never seems to be enough hours in my day – But if I were to start to focus on it, I would be following your examples!

    I only am familiar with four of the people on this list although I don’t follow them on a regular basis. I do visit some of their blogs but not consistently and I certainly don’t do it to learn SEO as you probably already know. LOL!!! Traffic, now that’s what I’m talking about.

    I will admit though that I should give SEO more thought and probably will in the coming months so I’m going to bookmark this post and come back when I have more time to check out these links. I know that when I need to start learning more about this is when this post is really going to come in handy.

    Thank you for sharing with us though who you follow and that right there means I should pay more attention to what they share.

  27. Hey Kumar,

    This was well researched I tell you. I believe the reason why I’m following Neil Patel is because of one of your earlier blog posts. I have read some of Matt Cutts work and I met Ana Hoffman about 4 years ago when I first started doing online marketing. I believe she was just getting her feet wet too because she invited me to one of her blogging facebook groups. At the time I couldn’t keep up with her LOL. But I’ll definitely keep my eye open for the rest of the people you mentioned here! Thanks for sharing the list!

      As long as we are not in business to please Google only, we shouldn’t worry what Google changes because fundamentals do not change.

      • Kumar, those multinationals were punished by Google and lost their page rank when Google decided to crack down on SEO strategies they didn’t like.

        This post gives advice about SEO. To quote you:” The rules of the game keep changing. What worked last year, doesn’t work this year. SEO is an ever evolving field”.

        Far too many bloggers write for SEO and Google doesn’t like that. So on and off they decide to stop SEO tactics. Have personally never written for SEO and hence have nothing to fear from Google. Actually undetstand that it annoys Google how blogs try to con them by coming up with new, smart SEO strategies to give them a better page rank.

          That is exactly right Cateina. That is why I do not treat SEO the way you perceive it.

          I am not sure what you are trying to suggest here though. I am just a but confused as to whether you are questioning these strategies I have shared here or are you supporting them?

          I don’t think Google (or any search engine) penalizes people for doing the right thing and that is the whole point of this discussion.

          Besides, this post is not about discussing advance SEO techniques. The strategies that perhaps you are talking about, are not even discussed here because this post is for people who think SEO means spending money to please Google, which is an incorrect perception as I see it.

          So, anyways, what is that you are suggesting?

      Hello Dr. Diana,

      Amit Agrawal is also an awesome blogger. I have heard about him through many people as well. But I did not see him specifically writing about SEO. So, I didn’t include him in this list.

      Or, have I miscalculated his focus?

      Regards,

    Hello Mr. Kumar,

    There is of course no doubt these are great guys in this blogosphere but if I may add my own voice to this, I

    think it will be prudent for us to build our own experience instead of just following whatever these guys say!

    When it comes to web hosting for instance, many were making lot of noise about Hostgator but at the end, they weren’t worth the hype. I have now built my own experience with Ipage and it is simply awesome!

      Hi Emmanuel,

      Following someone doesn’t mean becoming a sheep and becoming dumb.

      The idea is to be like an ant. Pickup what you think is good for you and leave what you don’t like. Smart people do not wait to learn from their own experience for everything because they understand the value of time. Instead, they learn for others, apply some common sense and decide what’s good for them to move on.

      That is the intent. Not to become a blind follower.

      Cheers!
      Kumar
