Keeping up to date with what’s happening in the SEO world can be a daunting task. Not only do you have to monitor your websites and respond to fluctuations in traffics/conversions quickly, you have to listen out for changes in algorithm or new indicators in what will help you rank in Google; the latter two can be done quite easily by subscribing to and reading blogs.
