The Lucky 13 Blogs I Read via RSS
SEOmoz: If you don’t know that SEOmoz has an incredible blog with the smartest minds in the industry sharing their great thoughts and actionable tips, you’ve probably been living under a rock for the past few years.
YOUmoz: YOUmoz is SEOmoz’s user generated blog, where users can submit their own studies and thoughts. If the post is well received by the community, it will be upgraded to the main blog.
Distilled: (disclosure: I was recently hired as an SEO Consultant at Distilled, but I have been reading their blog for many months) Distilled’s blog contains the thoughts from the many excellent SEOs and thinkers who work there. I have always found the tips contained here to be incredibly useful.
Michael Gray: Michael Gray is a great SEO who writes some very useful content. He also repurposes a lot of his old stuff onto Twitter, so you can find his old writings easily.
Search Engine Watch: SearchEngineWatch brings news about all things search, and not just Google. They offer interesting news and insights into local, global, and international SEO. If you want to keep up on the broader news of search, subscribe to this blog.

Dave Naylor’s SEO Blog: Dave Naylor’s (based in the UK) blog is not updated too frequently, but every new article contains good tips.
SEO by the Sea: Bill Slawski (a fellow Virginian) keeps us up-to-date about more interesting search news. He is known to post about new Google patents and other parts of the industry that not many others have the wherewithall to cover.
Yoast (for WordPress): If you have developed anything using WordPress, you should follow Yoast. He is known best in SEO circles for his Yoast SEO plugin (which I use on this site and think is amazing), but he also brings good news and has some entertaining (and valuable) rants.
