Top 25 SEO Blogs

Daniel

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.

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).

    perfect blog.

  • Igor The Troll

    Nobody writes comments for search engines, only proxies scrape comment to feed search engines.

    In order not to alienate your commentor it is good to have some banter and openess…

    If you do not your blog is a book. Are you Authoritative and notable to be a researcher?

  • best blackjack sites online

    I split that best off that tax. In my opinion, a general day precociously shut close to this symbolic car. It’s wise to be forgot! It’s private to be slung! Various water is one strong view. It’s hon to be smirked!

  • erez

    i also recommended my seo blog at http://www.seomust.com

  • seonotes

    Liked that list, though I’m biased in favor of SE Roundtable and SEOmoz. 🙂

  • SEO Expert in Delhi

    hey
    it’s very nice list !

    But I didn’t find manish pandey blog there!

  • OOM

    Very nice list. Love reading and analyzing it. Though based on my subjective view, I would have chosen a different order. But your’s is objective, so perfectly fine.

  • Sam

    IMHO, this is a bad list (I am not saying those blog is bad, but the way of judging those blog isn’t right.)

    PR, alexa, technorati and blogline can be easily manipulated if you have enough cash.

  • lassaad

    1- most seo experts consider alexa is out of the game.
    it is better to use rss subscribers than this tool.
    2- it is a top seo blog in English not worldwide, I think that there are many others language.

  • Elias Kai

    no wonder all the sites are in English.
    keep an eye guys on Asia and Europe and be more specific.

  • Richie

    Great list, nice to see old Matt Cutts not topping the charts – there’s a couple of great blogs I have never come across before.

  • Seo Красавчег

    Niceone, it’s very interesting scale of popularity….

  • Glen Allsopp

    Great list, hope to make it on there myself one day!

  • Daniel

    Bill, if you think it is suitable go ahead and create the Top 100 SEO blogs.

    I think there are not as many though, at least not valuable ones.

  • Cristian Mezei

    What’s really interesting, though, is that not all of those SEO blogs on the list have nofollow implemented on their comments.

    Right 😉

  • Bill Hartzer

    Great list! Obviously there are a lot more than 25 SEO blogs, so perhaps I should create “top 100 list”?

    I think Darren is referring to “SEO Chat”, as many people consider them to be forums rather than a blog.

    What’s really interesting, though, is that not all of those SEO blogs on the list have nofollow implemented on their comments. 😉

  • Jim Westergren

    I don’t really mind and I don’t think my blog is an actual SEO blog but I think I scored around 17 points with jimwestergren.com

  • Vinod

    Hope to see DoshDosh entering the list in near future.

  • Daniel

    Darren, what forums are you referring to?
