How many SEO blogs actually write original content?
I am not talking about original words, but original ideas which can be based either on experience from experimentation or what I would describe as reasoned theory?
Experience based on following conventional wisdom just doesn’t count – you only need to read one SEO blog for accepted best practice, it doesn’t really matter which one of the mainstream SEO blogs you choose. You might choose a few more for industry news with differing opinion.
The kind of blogs I love to read are those with substance, even if I can’t fully understand all of them first time around.
Now with that said I am going to highlight a few choice articles.
WordPress SEO Goodness
I am not the only one working with WordPress SEO dynamic linking structures. Here are 2 great examples
Sebastian has recently (thank goodness) switched over to a new domain and a WordPress installation and it seems creating some customized WordPress linking structures.
I haven’t fully worked out the benefits and drawbacks of what he is doing, but it will certainly ensure all his content gets indexed.
Halfdeck discusses SEO for Fun, and in my experience he only writes useful unique content. He uses his blog as a testbed for linking structures and also provides a tool for linking structure analysis.
Dan Thies recently let the cat out of the bag about Google proxy hacking but I actually want to highlight his SEO ebook. It is full of solid information – it gives you a good grounding for some of my more geeky posts that discuss creating such structures with WordPress. (it is free)
It might be a little easier for some people to understand than Revenge of the Mininet (and the bonus dynamic linking ebook) which for the last 10 months I have been strongly recommending. (Also free)
Jaimie is also a SEO worth reading (though he has been taking some R&R due to illness) and wrote the code to fix the proxy hacking – hopefully he will have a WordPress plugin for those that need it soon.
