Conversion Rate Optimization
Optimizely – A/B testing made simple and easy. Sign up for the free trial. If you’re not running a huge amount of testing campaigns, the free trial can last you up to three months.
SEMRush – Instead of breaking out Google Keyword Planner and spending a day brainstorming keywords and variations, I simply reverse engineer my competitors and find out exactly what they’re already ranking for.
Mozbar (Free) – Overlays DA, PA, and number of links onto your SERP results. Effective for quick analysis of competition.
Diggity Links – Naturally. But being serious, I stand by my product and can say with confidence that we’re at least a year ahead of the competition when it comes to link juice, quality, and security. If you haven’t already heard about Diggity Links, check the testimonials.
ProRankTracker – Best prices and best features. They’re constantly updating their features and have great support as well. Not so accurate for local, geotargetted search though.
SERPwoo – Allows you to monitor the entire SERP placement for each of your keywords. Invaluable for keeping tabs on your competition as well as figureing out what happened after a critical update.
PBN Butler – 100% real social signals. These are great for sending to client sites as well as simulating a viral effect for either getting out of the sandbox or justfying a high volume of incoming links.
FCS Networker – Great for sustained social signals. If you’re regularly backlinking to a site, then social signals are a natural and expected occurance (read more). FCS allows you to have very fine control over the generation of social accounts and rate they’re posted to.
Spin Rewriter – Gets the best result. Even the simple spin option always gets me copyscape-passed documents. Easy to use.
