7 Resources for SEO News

I’m a bit of a SEO news junkie. Too much so sometimes. I find myself checking these sites nearly daily. Nothing beats actually you know, building a site, and learning SEO through practice, but these sites are good for keeping up on trends in the industry.

I thought I’d share my list with you in case you’re a fellow SEO news junkie!

What I check nearly daily:


Link: http://inbound.org

It’s like reddit or hacker news, but for digital marketers. Lots of great SEO stories. I’m not a huge fan of the whole ‘inbound’ branded movement, I think the name is meh…but the content here can be good.

SEO Category @ AllTop

link: http://seo.alltop.com/

You’ll get a mix of PPC & Social Media posts here as well, but for the most part any quality SEO posts seems to rise to the top here.

SEO Topic @ Quora

Link: http://www.quora.com/Search-Engine-Optimization-SEO

Followed by over 11,000 people, the SEO topic on quora.com is worth subscribing too. It is often flooded with more beginner’ish SEO questions, but even those get very quality answers.

If you haven’t joined Quora yet, I’d highly recommend it. You can follow me here: http://www.quora.com/Scott-Krager

Search Engine Land

Link: http://searchengineland.com/

While you’ll find their top posts all over twitter most days, I still like to visit the site to see other stories that maybe didn’t make it big. SEL breaks big stories from time to time and editor in chief Danny Sullivan is an SEO legend.

Hacker News

Link: http://news.ycombinator.com/

While not really an SEO focused aggregator, it’s one place you can catch Matt Cutts replying to comments pretty often. It’s also a great source for any breaking Google news. It’s not an SEO friendly place for the most part, but a suprising number of SEOs are very active there including Rand Fishkin of SEOmoz (randfish) and Patrick McKenzie (patio11) of BingoCardCreator SEO fame.

Where I checkin weekly:

Webmaster World – Google Forum

Link: http://www.webmasterworld.com/google/

One of the older webmaster forums around, the Google forum on WMW is still very, very active. Alot of it is, “OMG, the sky is falling, Google killed my site!” but there is some quality signals you can pickup here. Always a good spot to check if you suspect a Google algorithm update might not just be you.

New: shitbound.org

Link: http://shitbound.org/

OK, so this is a semi-parody site that rips on the (often) ridiculous posts that the SEO world generates. It’s good for a laugh, and really, when Aaron Wall drops content like this in a AMA….it’s worth checking in on.

What do you read to stay current?

I’d love to know what you read to stay ahead of SEO trends! What did I miss?
