Hi Brain, I am a young business owner who has had 4 different websites in last 2 years but none of them were successful as I would have liked due to lack of SEO. Now I am in process of starting another business and I felt it was time for me to learn about SEO myself. I must say the information you have provided is invaluable and extremely helpful!! I am learning on the go and you are my biggest contributor. Thank you Sir!
With all the talk about the future of marketing, we sometimes forget about the changes happening right here, right now. Like voice search, which is already affecting search results. Here’s how to capitalize on it with the right optimization techniques. more
Sure, Scrapebox might get a bad wrap for many of the “black hat” things it can do. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t use some of the functionality to help automate tasks you don’t want to do manually. A good example of how you can use Scrapebox for broken link building is to see Ryan Stewart’s post on how to do this.
Thus, the only well-written description is a hand written one, and if you’re thinking of auto-generating the meta description, you might as well not do anything and let the search engine control the snippet… If you don’t use the meta description, the search engine will find the keyword searched for in your document, and automatically pick a string around that, which gives you a bolded word or two in the results page.
All too often, B2B and industrial companies dive into search engine marketing without a coherent strategy. Don’t fall into this trap. Get off on the right foot by thoroughly defining your target audience(s), identifying their needs and motivations and highlighting how your products can serve these needs. Next, review your company’s position in the marketplace. Identify your top competitors and your company’s competitive advantage. Finally, identify specific goals and benchmarks, such as search rankings, Website traffic increases, sales lead volume and other ROI metrics, to allow you to measure the success of your search engine marketing campaign. This strategy will form the foundation of your campaign and put you on the path to search engine marketing success.
If you are into fancy charts, they are there. If you just want the data for export, you can do that too. I usually just want the data for my own purposes – and the Backlink Profiler Tool is probably my favourite. The Common Backlinks Tool is pretty useful too. I should say the tools are REALLY easy to use as well. Link Research Tools connects with the other well-known search engine optimisation tools on the market so you can grab a lot of data for lots of pages. The more data, the better.
There is one more thing I need to ask… most of the tools you have suggested for different purpose, I have gathered. Except the scrapperbox and social media tools… Can you suggest any social media Desktop application… which will let me manage all the social medias together making tear 2 links and RSS feeds and with auto post scheduling. And best if it will be free or low cost.
Google Images is a variation of Google Search, only they return image URLs instead of web page URLs. In terms of Search Engine Optimization, Google Images can provide a huge amount of relevant traffic to your website if you follow five basic rules:
The Site Auditor is a workhorse, it looks at every single element of a web page and reports what it finds (or doesn’t). Successful SEO campaigns are the sum of many working parts, optimizing your pages to their full potential is paramount in today’s competitive landscape. If you want a tool to thoroughly audit your web pages and return the results in an easy-to-read format, consider Raven’s Site Auditor.
Authority Labs is a rather handy tool, thanks to it’s ability to track and graph the keywords for your site. Performing daily check of the keywords you’ve highlighted, then turning the findings into a weekly report.
While there is also interest in spending on mobile ads as the figures from eMarketer show, Google will soon take a more crucial role in delivering content to mobile users, starting with app store optimization.
It helps you find out how the website appears to Google when opened on mobile devices. It also provides a deeper insight into the possible mobile usability problems faced by the site including smaller font size or the use of flash. Above all, it is easy to use. All you need to do is enter the URL you want to test, and it will provide an in-depth report once done.
3. uReview.me – A tool that tactfully asks and reminds clients’ customers for feedback about their experience, guides them through the online review process. It also gives clients a chance to reach dissatisfied customers before they write a negative review online.
41. Do you need an SEO? – Google explains what clients should ask when looking to hire an SEO. The article will give you good insights on your responsibilities and obligations as an optimizer, and perhaps guide you towards learning areas you wouldn’t have thought about adding to your education.
Having a few 404 errors will not ruin your rankings completely, but they can lower your user experience, which ultimately can affect your SEO performance. There are several WordPress plugins that can help you detect 404 pages on your website. My favorite one is called Permalink Finder. This plugin detects when a user lands on a 404 page on your website. It automatically searches through your database and tries to redirect the user to a page that contains the words the user was searching.
With the SEMrush workflow, identifying opportunities to increase brand awareness and reacting to them right away is easy. The whole team has access to the platform, so execution is streamlined because everyone is on the same page. Insights are translated seamlessly, keeping everyone up to date.
What I really like about you Brian and I know a lot of people have already mentioned it, is – you always provide quality content and these kind of tactics you could simply keep to yourself but you don’t. You genuinely want to go out of your way to help others and I really respect you for that. GOOD WORK!!!

8. Track your progress with a web analytics program. There are lots of options to use; Google Analytics in particular is easy to use, versatile, and it’s free. Web analytics can tell you a great deal about how people interact with your site and how much traffic the search engines are sending you.
Again, Google and Bing search engines are useful for all things SEO. In terms of link building, they useful for scouting out new outreach and link prospects. A word of caution however, the road ahead is a difficult one that will require time, patience, and relationship building.
To compete with SEO, it’s essential to have the best tools at your fingertips enabling you to find new opportunities, save time and keep track of how your SEO can be boosted. We think that harnessing the insight available from tools isn’t just important for SEO specialists, but essential whether you’re Director of Search for a multi-national business, digital marketing manager, working as an account manager in digital marketing agency, owner of an SME, even if you run your own blog
