  • Hard to see big names such as Neil Patel, Hiten Shah, John Doherty, David Mihm, Ian Lurie, Jon Cooper and many many more miss out on this list. Nevertheless a good effort to come up with a comprehensive list of SEOs and nice caricatures too.

  • Great list! With so many great SEO’s, it’s difficult to know who you can trust to teach you the ways of great optimization. I use SEOmoz and trust Rand, quite a bit. I am going to compile a Twitter list of these people now.

  • Oh God, I hate charicatures. Yes, let’s enunciate everyones flaws, that’s what we all want to see….

  • Great list of Who’s Who in SEO, but I would add one other, Joost de Valk aka @yoast. His WordPress plugin alone should qualify him .

  • Greg

    I can’t even read the names of these people on my iPod Touch, zooming in on it otherwise. Blurry. Out of focus. Wonder if it’s the same for an iPhone.

  • I can see I need to follow more people! I think that Danny Dover is also a good one to keep up with …. if you can 🙂

  • Dudley

    No Wil Reynolds?? Maybe I missed him…..

  • Hi

    A great information .
    thanks David Wallace
