I want to be an SEO expert

What`s the best way to continue growing my SEO knowledge? I currently have about 4 clients and I am seeing an improvement in my SEO as well as theirs. I spend a lot of my free time watching videos on YouTube and reading about SEO but I was wondering if you guys had any suggestions!

  • Dave Elliott: I do this thing where i follow all the top seo people on twitter and set up a account which along with all the better bloggers feeds into an rss program and delivers me all the latest posts/news/blogs to my desktop. I find that very useful. 
  • Jann Grond: From the text and videos on your site, I don't think you are close to being ready to work for clients. C'mon in your videos you show videos of your keyword rankings where you are logged in to Google+. When I checked them you're not even close to the top. You overdue it way to hard with your keywords.

    This should not be against you but it's the truth and most likely one of the reasons that many people call SEO a "shady" business.
  • Elisabeth Bobeck (Liz): I'd follow the Moz guys, they have free video blogs and the main SEO dude, Rand Fishkin posts 30-40 times a week based on what he sees on the SEO front. The Moz Page Rank is here to stay and not going away. ;
  • Chase Reiner: what do you mean I overdue it with my keywords? The keyword density is too high? How do you think I should go about improving my skills? also, I don't think it's fair of you to tell me not to work with clients, it's a way for me to expand my knowledge on SEO and I am clearly getting traffic to my site (which are converting to leads) from certain keywords like SEO Santa Barbara, and I am helping them get traffic as well. furthermore, what's the point of constructive criticism if you're not going to offer a solution?
  • Jann Grond: Buy a good up-to-date book covering all the basics. And read blogs daily. I can't tell you which books/blogs as I'm from Switzerland and I read German stuff.

    But when I see your site, your just not far enough to take clients. Even if it helps you, it may have a bad end for your clients.

    It's the way you talk about things in general. And keyword density sounds so 2005'ish.

    I see though that you have a passion for SEO and that's great.
  • Chase Reiner: "Not far enough to take clients" can you elaborate? what are you currently ranking for?
  • No Bounds Digital: You can also follow brightlocal blog here: , or check their InsideLocal webinars that are free: . The last one is from June 15th, but we believe they'll continue with those with the new things pretty soon. So stay tuned.
