As Search Engine Optimisation is an important part of what we do here at Receptional, we have decided to bring you a countdown of, in our opinion the Top 50 SEO Bloggers from around the world. We have decided to rank the bloggers in terms of their Klout score, a simple measure of how influential they are across social networks.
Klout is a much better measurement of how influential you are in your space than say, your follower count. We rejected measuring blog traffic stats or links too, as these can favour someone who has put more time into their own SEO than others, thus making their blog appear more influential than it really is. The scores, along with links were collated on the 4th November 2011.
So let’s get straight into it, Receptional are proud to present the first part of the countdown, positions 50 to 41. Enjoy!
