When I first got into SEO I signed up for a bunch of different newsletters and RSS feeds. The one thing I did know starting out was that I needed to stay up to date on all SEO news. At the time I was getting maybe 20 emails a day, now I get maybe 10. I weeded down the amount of email I got for two reasons:
- The content of the newsletter was already coming to me from another source
- In this case the duplicated news was coming a few hours after I already got it from the original source
- While I did find some neat tools, I tired of hearing about he same products packaged differently.
The second reason is the inspiration for this post. Now don’t get me wrong, I love online tools for SEOs. They can be very beneficial, great aids and provide good insight. But that’s the extent of their use.
