Top 25 SEO Blogs

Daniel Scocco

I love rankings, what can I say. After I published the “Top 25 Blogs About Blogging” list I thought that someone would replicate it for the SEO sphere. But no one did, so here we go again.

This list was made using pretty much the same algorithm (only small modifications were made, mainly due to the fact that SEO blogs are more popular). Once again the list should be useful because it is based on objective factors. There are many “Top SEO Blogs” lists around the web, but most of them are based on the preferences of the author.

The Top 25 SEO Blogs list, instead, ranks the blogs according to their Google Pagerank, Alexa rank, number of Bloglines subscribers and Technorati authority. Each factor has a score from 0 to 10, and the maximum score for each blog is 40. Details about the algorithm can be found below the table.

#25 Small Business SEM 5 4 3 3 15

Blogs considered: the list considers only blogs that have a high percentage of SEO-related content. Topics might range from SEO news coverage to general SEO discussion and link building.

Google Pagerank (0 to 10): the actual Pagerank was used on the algorithm.

Alexa Rank (0 to 10): Ranges were determined based on the Alexa Rank (i.e., 100k and up, 80k-100k, 60k-80k, 40k-60k) and each range was assigned a number (1 to 10).

Bloglines Subscribers (0 to 10): Subscriber ranges were determined (i.e., 1-50, 50-100, 100-150, 150-300) and each range was assigned a number (1 to 10).

Technorati Authority (0 to 10): Ranges were determined based on Technorati’s Authority rank (i.e., 1-125, 125-250, 500-750,750-1000) and each range was assigned a number (1 to 10).

    Hi Daniel,

    This type of ranking is a great idea. However, it doesn’t take into account quality, frequency of posting, etc. Seomoz’s blog is buy far a better seo blog then seobook’s who rarely gives seo tips or advice anymore.

  • Jeremy @ Website Proposal Template

    Some huge SEO blogs you have listed there. And what’s up with Matt Cutts? His SEO tips are clouded in this mysterious, over-hyped perception that because he is 1 degree away from the Google founders, he somehow has answers (1st page, 1st position). Meh!

  • nick

    Nice ,thanks for sharing a great list.It is very difficult to cut a clear line on what is an SEO blog and what is not, so I just considered blogs that have a informative part of their content related to SEO and I will definitely take a look in these sites.

  • Eye Webmaster

    I really believe that SEO is one of the great tool for a website.

    There are many websites that need to be optimized but because of insufficient idea of proper optimization of a website they just let SEO as the last part of their needs in building up a website.

    Due to this some concerns theres a lot of websites that was was not in the search engine and we know that almost 500million searcher is using the search engine to search what they are looking for in the world wide web.

    Now if you want some SEO pro for your website we can help you with this..

    Thanks for this top 25 SEO Blog

There are a lot of high quality articles that can really be put to a good use. Another great blog I’m visiting on daily basis is SEO Moz. Definitely worth checking out.

    “Wouldn’t it have been easier to just do a google (msn, yahoo) search on ’seo’ or ’seo blog’? Wouldn’t that tell you who the best seo is? ”

    Dude has a point….ur either on 1st page or your nowhere…put differently, best to rank well in Google then all of the rest combined.
