Updated: August 8, 2022.

Here is the list of 40+ SEO podcasts I follow to stay ahead of the SEO game. 

If you’ve been following me for some time, you know that I’m a big fan of SEO podcasts. 

I honestly think that SEO podcasts are one of the best ways to learn useful tips, get updates, and deepen your SEO knowledge in general. 

You can listen to podcasts while running, cycling, or walking. You can listen at 1.25x or 1.5x speed to absorb SEO knowledge even faster. 

These podcasts are run by brilliant SEOs willing to share their expertise with others. Don’t you want to pick up their brains? 

I started listening to SEO podcasts because I was constantly lacking the time to read all the SEO news I was interested in and desperately wanted to learn new concepts, ideas, theories, tips, etc. 

I’ve recently run a poll on Twitter asking my followers how often they listen to podcasts. I was a bit surprised by the results. 

Even though the number of votes was small (83 votes), it’s easy to see a clear winner and a clear loser:

  • 50% of voters do not listen to SEO podcasts at all. 
  • 13% listen to SEO podcasts every day. 

My hope with this article is to inspire you to start listening to SEO podcasts because my decision to make SEO podcasts my daily habit was one of the best SEO decisions I’ve ever made.  

Okay, let me open Apple Podcasts on my phone and tell you what I have there!

A list of the best SEO podcasts 

Note that I find each and every SEO show that I subscribe to highly valuable, so they are in random order. 

The only sorting I applied is that the first 30 podcasts are publishing regularly while the last 10 have not published an episode in a few months/up to a year.

However, note that even these podcasts offer tremendous value and I encourage you to listen to older episodes too.

Final Thoughts On SEO Podcasts

I really hope that you liked my list of SEO shows. I really put a ton of work to compile it for you. If you think that some great SEO show is missing from this list, let me know. I will be happy to update the list. 

P.S. I will be starting my own SEO podcast later this year!
