Doing SEO today requires more than some know how of best practices and a website to work on. It requires amazing tools to help manage everything from technical analysis to project management. When you think about the fact that there are over 200 variables that affect search rankings, and thousands of pages competing with you for every single keyword, you are talking about so many different things to consider when making seo decisions. This is why toolsets like Drive By Rank Above, and Conductor and Brightedge and other SEO platforms are so popular…
But the truth is… doing SEO today goes way beyond technical analysis done by SEO platforms, it requires clever link prospecting tools, and fancy tools that guess email addresses for webmasters based on the data you give it.
The bottom line is that the SEO world is cranking out tools to simplify their own and your life, and they are doing it at an amazing rate. More importantly, they are publishing them for free. Well, maybe not for free, they are hoping for links and citations from blogs and websites that benefit from their tools.
But more importantly, the comments lists hundreds more.
They are listed with bite sized snippets describing each tool… Just reading through it should surface new incredible ideas for your SEO and inbound marketing efforts.
This is a nifty list you should definitely bookmark and probably hide from your competitors. It reminds me of the excellent toolbox posts on mashable back in the day.
