Search engine optimization helps you get your website noticed. Some people learn about it so they can manage SEO for their own site, while others need SEO knowledge to carry out their work. Whether you try to keep up with SEO for yourself or for your clients, staying up to date often feels like a never-ending task. Things can change rapidly and if you turn away for too long, you can come back to find that nothing is the same. Fortunately, in the online world, it’s not difficult to find plenty of information and opinion pieces. If there’s one problem, it’s wading through it all to find the valuable content. You can use a few methods to keep up with the latest SEO developments.

Join Communities

Online communities are an excellent way to engage with SEO because they allow for two-way conversations. You can just read about what other people have to say, or you could join in and make your own comments too. You can find online communities in a number of places, from Reddit to Quora, Growth Hackers, and Inbound. Of course, you don’t have to engage with only online communities. Although it gives you access to a wide range of opinions if you’re online, there are offline communities and events you might find interesting too. In larger cities and towns, you might find specific groups dedicated to SEO.

Seek Out the Experts

There are always voices of authority you can listen to when you want to seek out information on any subject. These people might be the first ones to hear about important news, or they could be the people offering insightful comments on best practice. When you’re looking for experts to follow, you might find Hubspot authors like Danny DeMichele who can offer expertise from running businesses involving SEO and digital marketing. Many industry experts have blogs you can follow, so you receive emails with their latest updates. You can look for them on social media and other platforms too, or even listen to them speak in person or on podcasts.

Browse Content Platforms

There are various content platforms that are useful to browse if you’re looking for the latest on SEO. Medium is often used by entrepreneurs and others who want to share interesting opinions, stories and case studies with a wide and varied audience. There’s also Panda, which provides different layouts for organizing the content you want to see. These platforms can be useful to help you discover new things, perhaps showing you content you didn’t know you needed to read.

Be Social Online

Don’t forget the value of being active on social media too. Following the right people and contributing your own voice is a fantastic way to keep up with what’s happening in SEO in real-time. You can be right there when interesting conversations take place, either by watching and learning or by joining in. In addition to following the right people, including useful Twitter lists, knowing which hashtags are useful is helpful too.

Stay up to date on all the latest goings on in SEO by seeking out the voices of authority. They will help you cut through the noise and know what to pay attention to.
