This isn’t another run-of-the-mill roundup of the “best” SEO podcasts out there. I polled Twitter, then trawled through the recommendations to find quality ones that are still producing regular episodes.

Here’s an SEO podcast with a difference: Kate Toon labels each episode “newbie” or “techie,” making it easy to tailor your learning.

Looking for succinct SEO tips but short on time to trawl the web? Turn to Voices of Search.

This podcast focuses on SEO and content marketing, with near-daily episodes spanning 10–20 minutes. Given the low commitment required per sitting, it’s far easier to listen attentively as host Benjamin Shapiro tackles all the useful stuff, such as:

  • Optimizing how-to content. 
  • Identifying the best content formats for your audience. 
  • Mobile SEO changes.
  • How social media impacts SEO.

I like how clear-cut the conversations are. Notable guests include Dmitry Dragilev, founder of, and Bill King, founder and host of GTO Podcast (a show for growth marketers). 

Host: Aleyda Solis 
Topics: SEO, tech SEO, link building
Frequency: Monthly
Avg. episode time: 25 mins

This YouTube-to-podcast show is hosted by Aleyda Solis, whose strong following on Twitter speaks of her experience.

Apart from being the founder of digital marketing consultancy Orainti and remote work platform Remoters, Aleyda dedicates her time to making Crawling Mondays a podcast worth your while.

While episodes are infrequent, there’s plenty for you to dig into: SEO reviews, interviews, and related news. There are also how-to tips on building a winning SEO strategy, doing local SEO, and project management for agencies.

I particularly like the quality of guests who have come on the show, including Lisa Paasche, Areej AbuAli, and Marie Haynes. Here’s one featuring our very own Patrick Stox:

Occasionally, other experts weigh in—from scaling your SEO talent with Previsible’s Jordan Koene to stepping outside your comfort zone with B-Digital’s Rejoice Ojiaku.

Here’s one of my favorite episodes:

Together, they strike a fun and well-paced balance that’s easy for both entry-level and seasoned marketers to follow along.
