Conversion Rate Optimization

optimizely_logo_blue

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.

 

Keyword Research

semrush

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

Mozbar (Free) – Overlays DA, PA, and number of links onto your SERP results.  Effective for quick analysis of competition.

 

PBN Backlinks

Diggity Links Logo

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.

 

Rank Tracking

prt

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 logo

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.

Social Signals

butler

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

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.

 

Spinning Software

spr

Spin Rewriter – Gets the best result.  Even the simple spin option always gets me copyscape-passed documents.  Easy to use.
