Search Marketing is constantly changing, with search engines updating their strategies and working to deliver the most relevant results to their users. For a search marketer or SEO specialist it’s important to stay on top of search news and updates, to ensure the best possible rankings when potential customers are searching for information.

Here’s a list of the blogs that I read, which will help you stay ahead of the game with your marketing efforts:

1. Moz Blog

I’m a huge fan of Rand Fishkin, (aka the ‘Wizard of Moz’) and truly appreciate his knowledge and passion for SEO, content and social marketing. The Moz blog focuses on advanced SEO industry news, case-studies, and highlights the informative weekly ‘Whiteboard Fridays’. It allows content from the YouMoz Community users, and is an overall great resource for SEO.

2. Search Engine Land

A news and information site covering search engine marketing, social media marketing and search engine news. They have very knowledgeable, experienced writers who are always up with the latest within the search industry.

3. Search Engine Watch

This blog helps site owners to improve their ability to be found by the search engines. The Search Engine Watch content is advanced, addresses specific situations and covers a wide variety of search marketing issues.

4. Search Engine Journal

The search engine journal blog highlights the important search trends, news, strategies and personalities in the industry.

5. Quick Sprout

Neil Patel is the founder of the Quick Sprout blog and provides consultancy to increase your blog traffic. He is a recognised and respected entrepreneur, and helps companies in growing sales and revenue.

6.  Social Media Examiner

The world’s largest online social media magazine helps businesses master social media marketing to find leads, increase sales, improve branding and drive traffic.

These 6 blogs are always on my top hit list, and there are plenty more out there that provide fantastic SEO advice (as well as being a great read). Which SEO blogs do you follow?
