Trying to improve your website’s search engine optimization (SEO) is a very important element that bloggers need to know about to bring traffic to their blog.
“Reading and learning is the key to learning SEO and as SEO is a fast-paced
occupation it is well worth staying informed.” – Learnimtactics.com
For example, take a look at the quote at the top of this blog post (below the title) from Learnimtactics.com that explains the importance that reading and learning is paramount to learning about SEO. Feedspot compiled a list of their favorite SEO Blogs to follow in 2021 and I cursory went through their list of Top 100 SEO Blogs, updated as of August 21, 2021.
This post may contain affiliate links, I’ll make a commission at no extra cost
to you should you click through and make a purchase.
Most of them I haven’t recognized but that’s soon going to be changed as both of us get to know some of the top 50 SEO bloggers to follow for improving your websites SEO performance. I’ve rearranged the order for the blogs that I’ve personally visited and recommend.
Part of the rationale for putting the different top 50 blogs on this list were: the amount of blog posts that were posted and were they recent, do they continue to write SEO blog posts, do they have a nice layout, is there anything worthwhile that you could benefit from by their site, and overall web design.
At the bottom of this post, I’ve captured the Domain Authority Score for each of the blogs in descending sequence with the highest DA score at the top of the list.
In reviewing the different SEO blogs that were mentioned on Feedspot, I looked to see whether or not they were providing SEO blogs or were SEO companies (a few of the ones didn’t have a blog and were purely SEO companies that didn’t even have a blog). I didn’t list them because the intent of this list is that you can go to their blog and subscribe to their e-mail list so you can get to learn more about improving your own SEO. I have left the frequency of how often they write a post and would recommend that the ones that write at least once per week over the others that write a blog post less frequently. The frequencies provided were the ones reported from Feedspot (if applicable). Especially for a blog post that is proclaiming to have the word SEO as part of their blog’s title.
Improving the world by helping Pinterest users to start a blog, grow their blog, monetize it, and providing general information for the Social platform of Pinterest and SEO Tips. Frequency 2 – 3 posts / week.

At ClickMinded you’re pretty much guaranteed to find something useful to you to improve your SEO. There’s a ton of useful information. For example, look at this list of random blog posts that I selected:
SEO Blogs by Domain Authority Score
Don’t use the DA Score as an indicator whether you should visit the site or not. But realize that they (ones with a higher score) have a better understanding of how to use SEO (or have been blogging longer) and have improved their site with their use of keywords and SEO strategies (i.e. backlinks, etc.).
