SEO Software Reviews
You don't need to spend money on SEO software to get high search engine rankings.
In fact, you don't need any software at all to be
a highly effective SEO expert.
However, the software I recommend can help you learn search engine
and it can speed up some of the tasks that you would normally do manually. That is why I decided to let you know what
search optimization software I believe is the best
and most cost effective for
beginners to use.
I have reviewed a lot of SEO software, and based on
my extensive research of SEO tools, I believe
that the following tools are extremely economical
and ideal for beginners.
IBP (Internet Business Promoter)
There is a lot of SEO software to choose from
that will check search engine rankings,
provide on-page optimization
tips, etc. However,
IBP is the most effective tool I have found for beginners.
One of the things I really like about
IBP is called "IBP Top 10 Optimizer".
analyzes the top 10 ranked
web pages for your keyword phrase on the search engine of
your choice and compares the top ten pages to your web site.
IBP creates an on-page optimization report
that tells you in a detailed and easy to
understand way how to optimize your web site for
the specific keyword phrase in the search engine you've
chosen. Running the "
Top 10 Optimizer" is
an excellent way for beginners to learn about
optimization, and to improve their
- It is very easy to use.
- Has customized ranking reports.
- Has detailed on page optimization advice.
- Offers free upgrades for life. (not including database upgrades)
has a search engine ranking reporter that creates high
quality reports in PDF, HTML, text or Microsoft® Word® format.
You can export the ranking results to .csv, .tab and .xls.
uses an invisible copy of Microsoft® Internet Explorer to query the search engines.
While I personally don't recommend the use of Ranking checkers,
IBP makes special efforts to place very little burden on search engines
by allowing you to customize user-like behavior and by querying
search engines for 100 results at a time.
IBP has a new feature that I really like called the "Link Popularity Improver ".
The "Link Popularity Improver" finds related websites that are ideal candidates
to exchange links with.
IBP also comes with a pay per click manager, a HTML validator,
keyword density analyzer, search engine submission software tool,
and a keyword generator. Go download
IBP's free trial version and take
it for a test drive.
Lastly, they have an excellent
SEO newsletter that I highly recommend, even if you aren't
interested in their software.
SEO Elite is a really excellent tool for finding
reciprocal link partners and checking to make sure
partners link to your site. There are many tools out
there for finding reciprocal
link partners. You can find
link partners without using these tools. However, if you
really want a cost effective
reciprocal link tool, I highly recommend
SEO Elite you can find out:
- Who links to a particular site.
- Number of backlinks each site has.
- Google PageRank® of each site.
- Anchor text used to link to the site.
- Average Google PageRank® of the sites linking to a particular site.
- Whois information for each site.
You also get free updates for life. Go check out the
SEO Elite demos on their website to get a better
idea all that
SEO Elite has to offer. It is really the
best off-page optimization software
you can find for an
can be really useful for beginners. However, I
recommend that you first read my article on
before using it because Wordtracker
leaves out vital information that you will want to hand check before making the final decision on which keywords to target.
That said, Wordtracker
is an amazingly useful tool for finding good keywords
to use on your website. You can use Wordtracker
to find good keywords by just typing in your main keyword, and
will find tons of related keywords for you. Then you choose
which of the related keywords you want to analyze. Wordtracker
will give you detailed reports and
even gives you reports on PPC (Pay Per Click) advertising.
can save you a lot of time and money when researching keywords.
The yearly membership fee is a bit steep for small businesses,
but for most websites you really only need a one day
or one week membership to do a detailed keyword analysis
for your site. Unless you are a website promotion consultant,
you don't really need to sign up for a month or yearly
membership to Wordtracker.
For beginners, the above three SEO tools
are the only ones I recommend at this time.
Most beginners don't even
need these tools, although the software above can speed
up the process of getting high search engine rankings.
