My 5 Favorite SEO Newsletters
Ecommerce merchants know the value of organic search for traffic and conversions. The five newsletters below will help you keep up to date with search engine optimization and learn new tactics quickly and succinctly.
Moz Top 10
Frequency: twice a month.
The free “Moz Top 10” newsletter contains a curated list of quality SEO guides, tutorials, and other information from around the web and from Moz itself. If you don’t have time to search for useful content, this newsletter is a good choice.
There are never more than 10 links per newsletter, making it a good choice for busy business owners.
Subscribe to Marie Haynes’ “Search News You Can Use” newsletter if you want to follow Google’s algorithm updates.
Each issue contains information about the most recent updates and the impact of previous ones.
Haynes also covers:
- Basic update observations – losers and winners and the causes,
- Recovery Stories and Case Studies,
- Links to useful articles and resources.
The basic newsletter is free; the premium version costs $18 per month. The latter is much more detailed, especially suitable for SEO practitioners.
Data Driven SEO
“Data Driven SEO” is a free, actionable newsletter from SEOProfy founder, Victor Karpenko. It’s for search professionals and website owners, with new tactics to improve rankings.
Each issue focuses on one topic and contains a detailed tutorial with steps and screenshots. The appearance is clutter-free.
Round table on search engines
Search Engine Roundtable is my ultimate source for SEO news. Its free daily newsletter is a digest of the best articles, tweets and threads from reputable practitioners, bloggers and publishers – and official announcements from Google. Owner and publisher Barry Schwartz has been practicing SEO for 18 years.
The summary is a time saver, ridding SEO professionals of the need to check blogs and forums daily. However, the sheer volume of content can overwhelm small business teams.
“SEO Notebook” is a free tactical newsletter from former FreshBooks SEO strategist Steve Toth.
Toth’s emails often contain useful downloads, such as spreadsheets and templates, to help you organize your SEO tasks and reports. His approach to SEO often takes a different perspective on popular tactics, making for refreshing reading. He also writes from personal experience and shares case studies.
