SEO Tools/Products: How to choose?

JillO asked 1 year ago
I’ve taken on a side project and need some help in the SEO department on my own. I’m familiar with SEOmoz and Raven’s Tools- they’re both actually really great. I just want to make sure that I’m not missing any must-have SEO products/tools.

Is there anything out there that I absolutely should be working with?

Do not do any artificial work. Do not buy any paid link with your KW. Rather write unique content regularly and offer usefull information on your site. Google will do the rest…

Excellent advice… Hence “Content is King”

What else do you think are the biggest “must-haves” for your SEO Plan?

Well Meta Description, Meta Keywords and Anchor Text are too pretty much important as far as SEO concern.

Absolutely… however, do you have any tools or solutions that help you manage these?

Meta keywords aren’t important at all…

Interesting… I’ve heard both directions on this. Why do air on the side that they are not important?

Yea, that is changing. My understanding on that one is Title and Discription and still a factor, but the keyword tags are pretty much either out or on their way out. I, however will continue to do all 3 including my keyword tags. I mean, how much effert is involved in putting them in there so why chance it. It’s kindda like bacon and eggs, but in the day they were good for you, then they wernt, now I read they may not be as bad as once thought and in moderation they can be good for you. Not sure on my analogy, but thats what came to my mind.

Speaking of keywords, I have noticed the keywords on the bottom of my pages (Home Page) are being picked up more than in the past. I dont know if I am just noticing it more, or if the SE’s are picking them up more. In either case I am going to try it out on a few more pages.

That’s not 100% true. In regards to Google, you are correct. But Yahoo/Bing still uses keywords so why throw that traffic away by not adding them?

I just had a look over the 2011 tools and I’m wondering if anyone has used SE Nuke and your thoughts on it. Also wondering if it works on Macs Thanks
