Rounding Up the Recaps

3 Feb

Are you afraid to miss that breaking news post or interesting discussion, but you don’t have the time to keep up with all the 246 feeds in your RSS reader? Don’t sign up for that Time Management training just yet, but try to follow everything through roundups in stead. There are lots of regular search industry related roundups (most of them are weekly ones) that will save you lots of time and make sure that you don’t miss anything at the same time…

Yellowhouse Hosting’s This Month in SEO (Recommended)
 What started as a weekly SEO roundup, turned into an in-depth monthly summary of everything what happened in the field of search. If even following just roundups is too much for you, I suggest reading only this one. The signal to noise ratio is excellent and Steven (aka VanGogh) describes almost every post for optimal readability.

If I missed one, please let me know…

    Thank you for this list (and for the mention) – I’m sure my NetNewsWire RSS feeder will become trimmer because of it!

    I would add to this, whenever there is a blogstorm related to SEO, wait for Lyndon to do a roundup of links.
