The New Year is here, and we got some top SEO blogs for you to read.
This past year we saw new features in AdWords, updates to Google+ and authorship, and the increased importance of semantic SEO.
Ideally, what you want to see in a SEO blog is the blogger’s potential to analyze news in addition to delivering them.
Here are some of the top blogs that we recommend you should follow.
Google’s Official Blog
Google’s blog never gets old. It’s always updated, and it’s always correct, and it’s always something you should be reading.
However, this blog is purely for the latest news from Google. You won’t find them giving tips on subjects you want to learn more about. For that, you have to read the others.
Search Engine Land
Arguably the most popular SEO blog around, this blog is always the first to break news, and you’ll find that they have several articles on one subject, so all your questions can be answered right on the blog. You’ll find that most of thew riters are the same each day, but the topics definitely have good variety.
Search Engine Watch
This is also one of the main blogs out there on the web for SEO. It’s one of the best sites to navigate and one of the best designs.
While Search Engine Land is typically the first to break news and get it out there, Search Engine Watch still covers the news and always seems to publish just a little bit more frequently and add just a bit more information.
Moz has been in the SEO game since 2004, publishing some of the best guides available for beginners.
They also publish quite a bit of advanced material and keep things very detailed, so just about any small business can benefit.

The best thing about this blog is the way it’s written. All of the articles have a conversational tone and have a done good job humanizing the content to make it easy to understand.
The Marketing Blog is where you’re going to find the most SEO advice, but HubSpot also has blogs covering other topics—such as sales, academy, and web design—that are worth checking out.
