SEO is a study that changes every day. I make my living as an SEO practitioner with Cardinal Path’s Search Engine Optimization consulting services, but I invest a minimum of daily time on keeping myself updated. It is a must.
There are several sources of information I like to keep an eye on but RSS feeds and Twitter make up the bulk of it, and I follow people across both.
I don’t, however, follow the same people across different channels, largely for two reasons: first to avoid information redundancy; and second because the fact someone has a great blog does not necessarily make their tweets interesting and the other way round. So I pick the people/channel most relevant to me. Maybe you, disagree but this is how it goes at “Casa Lopez”.
In the time between having breakfast with my wife and daughter and heading to the office I like to have and decent espresso while taking a look at my feeds to guess what is going on in SEO world. Around 55 to 75 new articles are popping up daily, quick scan of the tiles to end up reading the 3 to 7 of them that catch my attention.
Besides the 50 SEO feeds listed here I follow around 30 more for topics like Web Analytics, Usability, Link building, Information Architecture or any other SEO related discipline. Not counting the ones I read in Spanish. I should be writing a post on who is who in Search and Analytics space in Spain, we have really good people there.
This list has no particular order, I understand titles like “Best 10 SEO feeds ever” would attract more visits but I dislike the approach of “top X whatever”. Most of my favourite guitar players would never hit ‘100 Greatest Rock Guitarists list’ but they are not worse than the popular, just different, you know what I mean.
Some are sites with daily updates on search market and some other with more “once in a while insightful hardcore” SEO articles (my favorites).
