Top 10 Best Sources To Learn SEO From
If you are a newbie SEO specialist here on seoclerk.com, you will probably want to stay up to that with the latest happenings in the SEO community.
It took me a long time to accept the fact that I continuously need to follow new developments, news and read case studies written by people much smarter than me and much more connected to everything SEO compared to me. There is no shame in being a nice and even less shame in wanted to improve yourself continuously.
Keep in mind SEO is a vast topic and in essence, nobody can know it all or practice it all. I believe there is no secret tips or success advice somebody can teach you about SEO; it is all hard work and tedious learning.
I've written this post because a lot of you here had asked me for SEO tips, SEO learning platforms and best places for SEO news and case studies. So here is my list:
1. Moz - The website. If you are a beginner, probably the best SEO guide around is available on Moz: https://moz.com/beginners-guide-to-seo
This is a complete, well written, updated piece of substantial content that should basically become the Bible of every beginner SEO specialist out there.
Moz also offers some of the best SEO tools around, most of them being free and probably the cornerstones in the industry like the open site explorer, Moz keyword explorer, and Mozbar.
2. Backlinko - Brain Dead is a fantastic SEO with excellent results! If you want to learn about link building and how to make it on youtube, this is your guy! Aswome case studies that are indeed valuable and provide insights on this you can't really learn without testing them yourself. Backlinko mostly saves you from all that trouble giving straight answers and tips.
3. Quicksprout - Neil Patel. I personally don't like this guy. He sometimes goes over the top, and it is too "commercialized" for my taste, sometimes I like taking Neil's claims with a little grain of salt. But yeah, overall Quicksprout is an excellent resource for learning new things about SEO and reading big and complete pieces of content and tutorials!
4. Google Webmaster Central Blog - It doesn't get more official than this. This is Google official blog about indexing, crawling, and SEO. Follow it! Read It! Don't ignore it.
5. Moz Blog - Again with Moz. But yeah. They really have a great blog with lots of case studies, tutorials, and news! The best pieces of content are Rand Fishkin's White Board Friday. In fact, I don't know why I placed this blog in the fifth position. It should be in the second place right after Moz general.
6. Search Engine Round Table - Barry Schwartz is one of the biggest veterans in SEO. The man is a legend and has been around ever since SEO was born. He knows it all and is probably the best place for inside news stories about SEO. Make sure you don't miss reading this guy on a daily basis!
7. Search Engine Watch - Lots of articles by many popular SEO specialists. They publish constructive posts and tutorials, high-quality SEO content that you shouldn't miss.
8. Other Blogs to follow: Not everyone deserves their own special place on this lists. Here are some of the not so famous SEO blogs out there hut yet still highly important to read and follow: Ahref Blog, SemRush Blog, Kissmetrics Blog, Search Engine Land and Search Engine Jurnal.
9. Twitter profiles to follow: Rand Fishkin, Barry Schwartz, Danny Sullivan, Neil Patel, Julie Joyce, Matt Cutts and John Mueller.
10. Google. That is right. What about Google? What about googling your problem? You should try it, it works wonders!
