Note: I have an SEO twitter list set up to make it easier for you to view and follow everyone.

Email Subscriptions

Most SEO blogs are going to have email subscriptions, so for the sake of not repeating myself, I’m going to list ones that consistently have recent and valuable information.

Subscribe, and at the end of each business day, we’ll email you a summary of what happened in search that day.

Point Blank SEO: Link Building Newsletter
A great newsletter for link building techniques. Jon covers new trends and methods for acquiring links. This is the only newsletter I know of that is dedicated to link building strategies. Also, it should be noted that none of the information ins the newsletter is repetitive from the blog! It’s all fresh content.


Lastly, I just want to give a huge thanks to Rachel Alton for helping me put together this list and always correcting my terrible grammar. If it wasn’t for her, your eyes would bleed trying to read my gibberish!

3 Mentions? It must be my lucky day!

But this actually sets up nicely for the mention I’ll be giving you tomorrow (coincidence of course!) :)


Peter Attia March 30, 2012 at 6:16 pm

haha! You were completely worthy of being mentioned 3 times. Each of your profiles has different content than the others!


Jason Acidre March 30, 2012 at 8:40 am

Great list. I would suggest adding’s Twitter profile to this list :)


Peter Attia March 30, 2012 at 6:17 pm

I considered it, but I always see their posts after I’ve seen then somewhere else.


Sean April 2, 2012 at 10:58 pm

Dude, I’m not sure how I’ve deserved to be on this list let alone so high up on it (if it’s been added in error you are more than welcome to leave it!)

Cheers for the twitter list, now subscribed! :)


Peter Attia April 2, 2012 at 11:06 pm

Hah! The list is in no particular order, so don’t go getting a big head on me :) However, you totally deserve to be on the list man! Always enjoy your posts!


Nick Eubanks May 1, 2012 at 3:43 pm

Didn’t even realize I was on here until looking at my referrer analytics… Thanks Pete!


Peter Attia May 1, 2012 at 3:50 pm

Sure thing man!

You can’t do this every day without getting burned out. Meta tag stuffing involves repeating keywords
in the Meta tags, and using meta keywords that are
unrelated to the site’s content. Benefits of Local SEO There
are numerous advantages of opting for local
SEO, especially for entrepreneurs.
