SEO Experts to Follow on Twitter
SEO is both an art and a science! Without knowing every ingredient within the secret sauce that is the search engine ranking algorithm, the challenge of what to do and how to do it can be fraught with frustration on the path to success.
However, by listening to smart advice from Search Engine Optimization experts and authority sites, choosing the right path can reward every webmaster with much more effective results.
There are literally thousands of SEO blogs and online resources (such as SimpleSEOTips) available on the web which provide advice for webmasters to help them approach their SEO campaigns in specific ways. In conjunction with the information you find on this site, here are 10 top SEO experts (in no particular order) who I would encourage you to follow and learn from.
1. Problogger (Darren Rowse)
Darren started blogging in 2002 and since become an authority figure in online marketing and website monetization. The posts he publishes through his main online marketing blog are incredibly informative to marketers of any level.
2. SEOMOZ Blog
The SEOmoz daily SEO blog provides tips, tricks and advice for optimizing websites and getting better search engine rankings. Numerous authors contribute to the blog giving it a very varied and balanced view for a range of search optimization techniques. Keep an eye out for some of the best posts from the SEOMOZ blog CEO, Rand Fishkin.
SEOmofo webmaster, Darren Slater, claims his middle name is “World’s Greatest SEO”! Cocky, abrasive and extremely funny are three terms which I would chose to describe him. His confrontational posts are not for everyone but there is no denying that he is an extremely talented SEO expert. Shame he doesn’t blog more as it’s a fantastically enjoyable resource.
