We've created a list of top SEO podcasts, ranging from those for beginners to ones where you can boost your expertise.

Why Listen to SEO Podcasts?

SEO podcasts are a fantastic resource for both beginners and SEO professionals of any level for several reasons:

  • Expert Insights. As a famous saying goes, "It's always better to learn from other's mistakes." By listening to industry experts, you can gain knowledge you wouldn't have learned elsewhere and get inspiration for your project.
  • Convenience. With so many online podcast platforms, you can listen to SEO podcasts on the go, making it easy to stay informed. You can put it on during your morning commute or while running errands — kill the two birds with one stone. 
  • Up-to-date Information. By making listening to podcasts your habit, you stay current with the latest SEO news, updates, and strategies. It's easy to miss important information in the constant поток of news online, and usually, the podcast host filters the unnecessary out, leaving only the best info. 
  • Diverse Perspectives. If you choose multiple podcasts, you will hear from various experts and get different viewpoints on SEO topics. As many things can be opinionated, it's better to always look at something from different POVs.
  • Practical Tips. By listening to experienced professionals and their cases, you will learn many actionable advice you can implement immediately. Once again, it's better to learn from others' mistakes🙂
  • Inspiration. Learning about top SEO strategies from experts will help you get inspired by real-life examples and generate your own ideas.
