50 Websites Every SEO Should Know

My freelance website, PPC For Hire, recently received some love on Search Engine Journal for the Free SEO tools available on the site (you can read the full article here: 5 Free Search Engine Optimization Tools).

In honor of that mention, I have not only decided to blog about it, but pass along an even more comprehensive list that should be well known to anyone working in seo / web design for 2008.
