As we’re getting into the New Year, I decided to have a look back through the archives of the SEO Geeks newsletter and round up some of the best posts (to me) from the past year. And let me tell you, it was quite the undertaking. I must go through hundreds of RSS reader each week and after nearly 40 weeks, there is a TON of goodiness to go around.

Let it be noted that these aren’t really THE BEST posts, but more in-line with what I felt were the most noteworthy, entertaining or otherwise valuable from the past year. It is not always about the most popular posts that hold the test of time. There are a few nuggets from the more unknown in here as well as people you already know. I wanted to give you a collection that will, in most cases, hold value into 2010.

The best of SEO Posts of 2009

There is no science… it doesn’t have to be comprehensive, merely important. For this first instalment we’re looking at what I felt were the best or most noteworthy posts from 2009. We will then look at some specifics, (such as Local, Social, Tools and more). They are in no particular order… mostly chronological.

Without further adieu, here’s some reading that is a MUST in case you’ve missed them;

@RP - lol... well, I think one of the first things to do is start with a topic area. Take Geo-local, Semantic Analysis, Temporal...whateva'. And then read a bunch of papers/patents from that topic area. This makes things more manageable and easier to actually get something from it all. At least that's how I tend to do things these days... As for the posts, these are just some good readin to supplement the geekier stuff.

@Seb... awww man, ya know I can't wrap up a year without my fav ranting white coat search geek!! I look forward to more goodiness from ya and maybe hangin out on Skype a little more this year!!

Many thanks for the inclusion - I'm flattered. Perhaps even flattered enough to start blogging regularly again.
