Reader Poll: Best SEO Podcasts

reader poll

Along with other forms of media coverage on the topics of search and online marketing, internet radio has been a great source of content for listening live or via podcast. Some SEO podcasts and online radio are basic and others are very professionally produced. The content varies greatly as well from industry gossip to practical tactics.

Earlier this week I ran an informal poll with about 40 respected search marketers and almost half admitted they didn’t listen to podcasts much, if at all. In fact, some were publishers of podcasts that didn’t listen to other podcasts. Is is it the case that these people were so busy with clients, speaking, writing, testing that they didn’t have time?

One respondent pointed out having to dedicate time to a podcast while multi tasking simply wasn’t productive. The return on time spent wasn’t enough to justify it. Still others, provided 2-5 favorite podcasts along with their urls in a few seconds. Maybe they are the people with long commutes? 🙂

WebmasterRadio.FM (TopRank OMB interview with Daron Babin here) is the largest single source of online radio and podcasts on the topic of search marketing that I can tell, so their shows are well represented in the following poll:

For reference, here are links to each show page, feed and a list of everyone involved.

This is not a comprehensive list, but is a list that represents the podcasts and shows suggested when I polled 40 different search marketers on what their favorite search marketing shows were as well as a few others. Additional suggestions in the comments are welcome, although they will not be added to this poll.
