Ranking high in Google’s search results is the goal of every website owner.  High ranking can have a phenomenal impact on the success of your online business. With ethical SEO practices and sound content marketing strategy, you can drive targeted traffic to your website.

You can either engage the expertise of a SEO company, or if you have the time and passionate about content marketing and SEO, you too can grow your brand yourself.

Maximizing the benefits of a well optimized website will yield lots of earnings for the web business. However, optimizing your site might cost you thousands of dollars if you are not skilled in this area.

If you are passionate to learn SEO and Content Marketing and want to test your luck in this field, then you have to do two things;

  1. You have to learn basics of SEO and Content Marketing.
  2. Keep yourself up to date with the latest SEO and online marketing trends.

The easiest way to keep you update regarding new SEO and Content Marketing techniques is to follow the industry influencers on social media.

I have compiled the list of Top 60 SEO and Content Marketing Influencers that you should follow on Twitter. The list is not in any order or rank, it is random.
