When I first got into online marketing many moons ago, my main focus was on paid search (Google AdWords et al) and my job revolved around creating campaigns, bids, clicks, conversions etc however, although it wasn’t part of my job at that time, I found SEO equally as interesting and wanted to learn more. Without any on the job experiences to learn from I went looking online for websites that would help me, and they did. Since then SEO has become part of my job in a couple of positions and I can honestly say the following websites were a big reason why I knew enough about the subject to be able to work in that field.
Whether you are a complete beginner or you an SEO master, these sites have enough of a back catalogue and regular new information to keep you going for months!
