Are you interested to learn more about search engine optimization (SEO)?

But don’t stop there.

SEO is such a big and giving community.

You will definitely learn something new every day from this list of top 10 SEO experts.

Why This top 10 only?

The term “SEO expert” is thrown around a lot these days.
Do a Google search for [seo experts to follow] and you’ll find plenty of lists.
Here’s the thing about most of these lists: they’re usually deeply flawed in one way or another.

Common, top SEO expert lists:
  • Are just a sneaky way for an unknown author to get himself or herself on a list filled with experts and look like a big-time SEO expert.
  • Are published by unknown SEO agencies or companies purely for the purposes of attracting links and shares.
  • Include people who, while brilliant in other areas of marketing (social media, content marketing, etc.), aren’t really SEO experts.
  • Include people who no longer are really involved in SEO (or never really were practitioners). For example, while Matt Cutts, the former distinguished engineer who was head of the webspam team at Google, might be great on a list if it were still 2013 – it’s no longer 2013.
  • Include popular “experts” who share bad information that give the industry a bad name. (We won’t name any names here.)
That’s why we began putting together this list of top authorities and experts you should be following or listening to if you want to learn about SEO today.

This is our first list we will share as many as possible.

How I build this top 10 SEO Expert list?

I am being active in the SEO industry since 2013 so I faced so many problems during my learning.
There are lots of who asking for money or something in return but here all are genuine people who help me and others.
The people on this list are all actively involved with SEO now – or they’re sharing SEO information, knowledge, and insights (either via social media, contributing to publications or blogs, or speaking at conferences).

The main idea of this post is to help you find interesting people who know a lot about SEO and are willing to share what they know.

This is just one way that i can able to direct you to SEO professionals who can help you improve at your job and advance your career.

While I love the idea that there are hundreds of SEO professionals doing great work who go unrecognized – and there truly are! – if they aren’t visible and sharing knowledge, it doesn’t matter in terms of the list you’re about to read.

Our goal with this list is to highlight people who are trying to help move the industry forward by sharing unique insights/knowledge/tips/ideas, etc.

Finally – there is no rankings order here from best to least best. Each person on this list has value in their own way.

Rather than go in alphabetical order by last name, we plugged our list into this list randomizer (though I did make a few minor adjustments) to give everyone a fair shot at where they appear.
