Can you name a trustworthy source of SEO news and explain why any good SEO should read it?
Search Engine Land is ok at times, Dan Sullivan now works for Google so it might be a shill for them these days. I’m not sure.
Sadly, no. Because I’ve found, time and time again, that most people who talk about SEO don’t actually know what’s going on in 2019.
They lapse back into talking about LSI as if it really helps, and disregard social signalling because Google Said A Thing about it not working, yet then went on to say Google treats Twitter like any website it crawls…
I read up a lot on SEO, and besides the best practices, it’s all stuff I’ve read over the past 5 years and there are no actual major shifts in thinking.
I charted a random article to spot #3 on Google with no SEO work done, no keyword research, and only distribution and social media. Somehow, I’m told this is probably impossible (?)
If anyone finds any news sources by people talking The Realness about it, I want it too.
Just Google “SEO Blog”
Google pays special attention to SEO related keywords and which sites rank organically. Any of the top blogs are going to be putting out white hat information these days, period.
Search Engine Journal is one.
