Search Engine Journal: 140 Top SEO Experts You Should Be Following in 2019

Search Engine Journal, an online publication reporting on all things SEO, publishes an annual list of whom their esteemed panel of judges (including Loren Baker, Jenny Halasz, Alexandra Tachalova, and Purna Virji) deem as high-quality SEO experts. Inclusion on the list is contingent on criteria such as are these individuals currently writing and sharing SEO thought leadership…

  • At conferences
  • In publications
  • On social media

The goal of SEJ’s 140 Top SEO Experts You Should be Following in 2019 list is to help members of the SEO community learn from their colleagues, in order to help advance their individual careers, as well as, the industry as a whole.

The list (experts are featured in no particular order) highlights chosen individuals’ names, companies, titles, years in the industry, notable achievements from 2018 and social media links. Additionally, each expert shares what they love about SEO, as well as, a recommendation to an insightful piece of SEO content they authored.
