Do you think SEO isn’t a necessity for your website? Do you think it’s easy to rank high on search engines without it? Do you think your website trumps those of your competition by a mile? If you have a nicer website and better content, then you probably might not have to work too hard when it comes to SEO technology, right?
Sadly, this isn’t how things work because search engines simply aren’t that smart. If you want to get more traffic, you will need more than just a nice website – and this might be harder than you think. In fact, you might need to use SEO technology to get things done.
Fortunately, there are a lot of different online approaches that you can look into nowadays, but one approach that you should definitely avoid would be black hat techniques.
While doing your research, you might come across black hat offers for your website. However, as positive as the results of these techniques may seem, you have to steer clear of them at all costs – remember that.
The good news is that there are a lot of other technology approaches that you can look into in order to get positive results from search engines. One great tool, for example, would be the website analysis tool.
In a nutshell, webpage analysis refers to a toolbar or another kind of add-on that can analyze your competitors’ websites. It considers certain things, such as keyword density and the keywords themselves, the amount of incoming links that you get and their sources, site map information and Alexa ranking.
Once you figure out what works best for your competitors, you can start putting other things to use, as well, such as tools for webpage content evaluation, inbound links and keyword density. You can also get some help tracking and organizing your overall efforts.
Believe it or not, the organizational tools of SEO technology can be extremely helpful since using SEO in itself can be quite complicated. With a good system, though, you should have no trouble with overloading or making mistakes. In fact, provided you have the right tools and software, you shouldn’t have any trouble whatsoever tracking your methods and putting them into practice.
Aside from keyword tools, the best kind of SEO technology out there should be able to create and track inbound links for your site through various ways, as needed. It can submit links for you, for example, or create automatic accounts. It can also automate submissions to link directories and article directories, if needed.
Also, since the amount of inbound links can improve your website’s quality overall, relevant websites can significantly impact your ranking overall and help make your link-building process more effective.

With respect to onsite SEO, I absolutely love Traffic Travis and SEOPressor and Yoast for WordPress.
These scripts make it easy to get your onsite SEO in order, which then requires less off-site SEO on the back end…;)

Toolbars are old school, hand in hand with them there are SEO plugins, addons, extensions etc. for Firefox and WP – I’m sure Chrome will undergo the same development if not already.

Seo is the the soul of e-commerce and Google Analytics is tool to monitor your traffic from each corner of the world ,bounce rate and many other factors.

The point you made here are totally worthy but I was looking for some more as well like the tols for doing competitor analysis and other tools as well. Can you suggest some tools of this kind which can make the task bit easy?
September 29, 2011 at 10:03 pm
Not very specific advice, I agree. In my experience, Traffic Travis (I’m using the free edition) tool proved worth the time and effort. Also loving SEORush. Hope this helps:)

How do you define blackhat?
I would definitely put this in my definition: Aside from keyword tools, the best kind of SEO technology out there should be able to create and track inbound links for your site through various ways, as needed. It can submit links for you, for example, or create automatic accounts. It can also automate submissions to link directories and article directories, if needed.
BTW that is an exact quote from your post.

SEO tools are quite helpful when it comes to get ranks quick. You can automate any SEO process. I use ZENOposter , that’s a tool that allows you to create BOTS to do anything you want like : Forum posts , Directory submissions , HI PR profiles , Social Bookmarks , … really anything.
The downside of this kind of tool is that is using the browser to automate the task so for 100 directory submissions you may wait even 2 hours till it’s ready.
You can also use MASS spamming tools like Scrapebox or Xrumer or Bookmarking Deamon. This tools can create 1000 links in 10 minutes but this kind of strategies are not working so good anymore after the PANDA update.
You can use a Sniper tool like Zeno poster to create good links but not that many , and blast this links with a tool like Xrumer or Bookmarking deamon.

Nice article. Now seo has changed a lot and hence the role of tools. I prefer to use tools to get more specific and niche-oriented data for making my efforts go in right direction.
