Welcome to Blog Profiles! Each week, we select a topic and handful of blogs that do a great job contributing to the conversation. Do you have a blog that deserves recognition? Tweet our writers at @BeyondBylines.
A few weeks ago, I recognized a few of my favorite SEO blogs.
Since I follow so many of these sites for the latest news on search engines, social media, and digital marketing, I’m writing about four more this week.
Do you have another favorite SEO blog? Let us know in the comments.
Glenn Gabe is the founder of G-Squared Interactive, an online marketing consulting firm, and a digital marketing veteran with 20+ years of experience. The site’s blog, The Internet Marketing Driver, is full of helpful posts on the latest algorithm updates and best practices in digital marketing.
Gabe’s in-depth blog posts offer detailed analyses of the latest Google algorithm changes and include plenty of visuals, which I love.
He also uses his expertise to craft helpful coverage of advanced SEO topics, helping readers learn more about these tough-to-understand subjects.
Check out these interesting posts: Google’s Core Algorithm Updates and The Power of User Studies: How Real Feedback From Real People Can Help Site Owners Surface Website Quality Problems (And More); and NOT taking the (canonical) hint: How to estimate a low-quality indexing problem by page type using Google Analytics, Search Console, SEMrush, and Advanced Query Operators.

3. SEMrush Blog
Based in Boston, SEMrush is an SEO optimization platform popular among online marketers, bloggers, and small- and mid-size companies. Since its founding 11 years ago, SEMrush has grown to a user base of more than 4 million people.
