This one is for the new beginners who are interested in SEO and looking to get an edge, and for the experienced ones who want a reference point for the best Guides to SEO out there.
When I got into SEO, I had a difficult time starting. It was not as much as the content, but where to find it and which one is worth reading. There are bunch of “definitive” “essential” “step-by-step” or “basic” guides to SEO on the internet, and quite honestly not all of them are just as good. To spare you the trial and error and your time, this here is a list of the best Guides to SEO out there.

Level of depth & breadth of the content
Expertise and authority of the author in the field of SEO
Readability of the text and use of visuals
Structure of the guide
