I feel like a simple google search wouldn't point me in the right direction. Just because they are ranked high doesn't necessarily mean they are honest or helpful.

I know of SEO Blog and Moz Blog - SEO and Inbound Marketing Blog. Are those good? Anymore?

    The mainstream so called SEO blogs provide very little value.

    Give me something I can use, not some regurgitated crap 1 billion SEOs have.

    I didn't look at the list of sites satrap posted but I totally agree with him when it comes to useful SEO tips, listen to the smaller guys that don't hold back on info, forget the live conference ticket selling sales pitch hype sites that the masses follow.

    If you want to follow the late night infomercial hype, look into buying a ShamWow, you'll get more bang for your buck.

    Also, If you can't be bothered to test, research, & learn things on your own, SEO probably isn't a good career.

      Yap, those "Big and well-known" SEO blogs are either providing their dreamy white hat kind of SEO strategies (build it and they will come) or just giving tips and strategies that for most niches (read real life) won't work.

      Although, I still do keep an eye on them. I mean, you can still learn a lot. But as far as actionable stuff goes, I would stick with smaller guys (especially one man show kind of blogs) where they share tips and strategies that you and I (average guys who don't have big company budgets) can actually use in almost any niche and not just the SEO niche.

      And Yukon is absolutely right, testing for yourself is something that will teach you way more than reading thousands of SEO blog could. I found that the hard and long way. But when I finally stated testing things out, I was able to learn stuff that helped me rank sites much better and easier.

      But I know testing and experimenting can be hard especially when you are just starting, you don't have extra money to spend on experiments, you don't yet have the motivation because you haven't had any success yet etc. But even small tests can give you enormous info.

      No matter how willing and nice other people are about sharing their tips and experiences, they are bound to leave things out (Sometimes small things that could actually play a huge rule in your SEO success) either by accident thinking since its common sense and a known fact in SEO world they don't have to mention it, or they may not want to give away the real secret . So, you won't get the whole picture.


      @Yukon
      Check them out when you get a chance. Between them they have lots of great tips and strategies.

      I love their case studies where they use real life examples (read small sites) and not some 500 fortune company who can get links from anywhere they want.

      SearchEngineJournal is really a good blog, I get emails from search engine journal when any new post is there and they are really helpful to keep yourself updated with the changes happening in SEO.

    SEO... well, personally I prefer to follow/listen to people who can either:

    a) test hardcore seo
    b) share strategies for business

    In the end SEO is a mix of both hardcore NON-TESTED techniques (to be ahead of search engine algos) and business social strategies. You can get HUGE results with both of them, but you can't win in competitive niches without both of them - business socialize (befriends with people in that business, share them, they share your side, mutual promotion, etc etc) and some underground techniques (that you keep to yourself, your own team, your company, etc).

    Lot's of industries are doing this right now, I am particulary involved with one of them, and till a couple years ago no one wanted to push in same direction - but now people doing marketing for that industry finally understood the goal and things are moving forward. There are also good companies doing marketing for that niche, and that also matters.

    So yeah, I would advice to follow hardcore testers (some says they are BH..., I prefer to call them creative testers) and recognized people/brands from that particular industry.

    Not usual, but works for us and our clients. Plus, we meet new people and build strong relations who help us almost everyday.

    Search Engine Journal many of you mention here is indeed popular but it's started publishing lots of crap lately. Might not be the best place to seek SEO knowledge. And it's the problem with many places? inbound.org also mentioned here is a social network where people promote their posts, so it sounds like a procrastination place to me. You'll lose time and lose nothing.

    What are the great ones then you ask? I'm not a regular reader to any of those. Luckily, I have friends who are and they would sometimes point me to great contributions. Normally it depends on the author, not the place, so it's quite random.

        I mean blogs like SEJ are places where you spend too much time if you take them seriously. You spend hours on reading posts on SEOs instead of doing SEO. That's procrastination.
