Top SEO Resources I use and Why

I felt like writing a helpful blog post here so here's my opinion on some great SEO blogs I read and why:
1. SEORoundtable. Why? If there's one SEO blog/website I recommend reading on a daily basis, it's SEORoundTable. Barry Schwartz covers everything that's happening in the SEO community on a daily basis. His articles link to interesting SEO forums, threads and news articles across the web. It's also refreshing reading articles from someone who clearly knows his way around the industry. I also like reading the comments section for big stories.
2. SearchEngineLand.com. Why? Best search engine news site bar none. I check this site on a daily basis along with seoroundtable. I enjoy reading most of the news and analysis stories on this site. Sometimes the articles are a little long and OTT but I have so much respect for Sullivan and the team in terms of his commitment to news. I think he's a little bit biased to Google and too "smug white-hat" for my liking but he still does an excellent job of covering industry news before anyone else.
3. SEOMoz.org Blog. Why? I don't read every article, but occassionally there are some really interesting blogs that you can learn from. Whiteboard Friday with Randy Fishkin is quite entertaining and definitely worth watching. I usually check out the blog once or twice a week for interesting articles or videos. You don't have to pay a subscription fee to view the blog or anything.
4. WebmasterWorld Forums. Why? I don't really respect any of the SEO people on this forum (they mostly seem like idiots who only run eCommerce sites and don't know too much about SEO) but it is a great place to look out for the latest algorithm updates and ranking movements.
5. TrafficPlanet Forums. Why? A lot of the Blackhat stuff, arguments and experiments that go on in these forums is pretty interesting imo. Sometimes I learn quite a lot about SEO just by studying what works/doesnt work for these guys.
7. WebProNews.com. Why? I don't consider this an SEO resource, but it does occassionally have interesting feature stories surrounding Google, Facebook and Bing.
8. SearchEngineWatch. Not really that good. Occasionally has interesting articles but I only check it out a couple of times per month.
9. SEOBook.com. Not worth reading in my opinion. Not updated much and I don't really like Aaron Wall's views on anything tbh.
