What is PAGES SEO Magazine?


Want more out of search? PAGES was created to help.

No part of a business works alone. Each department has a role that supports the others. Understanding the important role search engine optimization (SEO) can play in marketing your business can be the key that unlocks its potential.

PAGES isn’t your typical SEO read. You won’t find dense tutorials or detailed instructions for implementing SEO tactics inside.

What you will find are stories about how SEO can benefit you, and strategic insights about what works when it comes to search. PAGES can help you leverage the value of search as a marketing channel. We source our stories, insights, and guides from SEO experts across the industry to help marketing managers understand what search can do for their organizations.


One of the most common questions we get about PAGES is, “Why did you decide to start a magazine?”

It seems a little counterintuitive: PAGES is a dead-tree (print magazine) published by a company whose bread-and-butter is digital.

PAGES was started because of a need: there’s no school for SEOs, but we all use the web, and there isn’t a marketer out there who doesn’t benefit from understanding SEO basics.

With all of the information on the web about digital marketing, it can sometimes be difficult to determine which opportunities are right for your business and where to begin when it comes to search.

Google is the #1 search engine in the world, making it the primary way people discover and access information. Understanding how Google processes and ranks the information on the web is arguably important for any web user who uses the search engine, and undeniably important for anyone who operates a website.

We found that there was a gap in content when it came to informative and appealing content for SEO beginners. PAGES was created to make SEO accessible to those that can benefit from learning about it. It’s an engaging resource for anyone interested in SEO.

PAGES helps marketers learn about how SEO can benefit their business or their clients’ businesses. All of the content within PAGES is curated to be easily digestible, and tie back to big-picture benefits that demonstrate the value of SEO. Having an understanding of web theory and SEO principles can also help marketers gain a more complete understanding of digital marketing strategy.

Just as a business’s operations should be optimized to be as efficient as possible, so should its marketing plan. Applying optimization principles to digital marketing strategy helps marketers get the most out of the work they put into their websites or their client’s sites.


PAGES was started by a team at Page One Power, an SEO agency based in Boise, Idaho.

PAGES is made possible by contributions from SEO experts from across the industry. 

The SEO industry has long relied on networks of industry professionals to share industry changes and news, SEO research, insights, advice, and basic education about SEO. PAGES leverages this model to deliver this information in a way that’s easily accessible for those who can benefit from learning SEO.

We accept contributions from anyone passionate about SEO who has proven expertise, from well-recognized voices from industry-leading SEO software tools, to promising emerging marketers who have important things to say about search.

PAGES is powered by its talented crew:

Managing Editor: Jan Schmidt

Art Director and Designer: A.J. Ogden

How do subscriptions work?

PAGES is best read in print and has a limited print run. We offer two subscription offerings–– paid and digital subscriptions.

ALL subscribers get immediate access to the digital archive of past issues. Each issue enters the digital archive upon its release.

What this means for subscribers: if you want to get your hands on an upcoming issue of PAGES, subscribe before its publishing date to be guaranteed a print copy. If you subscribe after the issue has launched, there’s a good chance you’ll have to wait until the next quarter to read the issue once it enters the digital archive.
