Hi Folks,

 

This is my first post here on the forums.

 

I'm currently planning/developing an SEO toolset for personal use that I will eventually release to the community and I had a few questions for you guys if you would be so kind as to answer them for me.

  1. What tools would you expect to see as standard in an SEO toolset?
  2. What tools do you consider an essential part of your day to day SEO activities?
  3. What tasks would you love to be able to fully or partially automate?
  4. What tools would you like to see that are currently not available?

I would really love to hear your opinions and ideas for a varied set of SEO and marketing tools.

 

Thanks in advance folks.

In reality there are only two 'tools' that are necessary.

 

1: A functioning brain.

 

2: A lot of commonsense.

 

 

Everything else is only as good as the person who devised the 'tool', if they were a clueless "expert" you would be MUCH better off NOT using it.

Not really sure how useful this comment is mate. The purpose of the tool/tools is to improve workflow and increase productivity, as well as automate tasks were possible.

 

There are many tools out there which professional SEO's use everyday, suc as ahrefs, SEOMoz suite, Search Metrics, MajesticSEO, Google Analytics, Excell, Screaming Frog, Market Samurai and so on.

 

While I agree that the tool is only as good as the person creating it, that is true of any piece of software, so that's pretty irrelevant.

 

If all you use is your brain and a lot of common sense, then it must take you ages to get anything done. Tools are here to make our lives easier.

To me the question is, is there a need for another tool beyond those you mentioned? For your purposes, I'd say you have to look at what those tools are missing (if anything) and fill that niche. But I'm not sure if there is anything left that hasn't already been done.

I must admit I did leave two things out.

 

 

Your server access logs, and a profit and loss  sheet for the same periods.

 

Those will tell you FAR MORE about how your marketing and "optimising" are doing that any so-called 'SEO Tool'

Profit and loss I agree with entirely. Too many people confuse what "optimise" means. It means "optimal", and to isolate it to a single SERP misses that the optimal BUSINESS strategy may be to, I dunno, do your taxes!

 

Marginal value of an action is the key to business, and one should spend the next period of time, be it a minute or a day, in the most productive manner.

  4. What tools would you like to see that are currently not available?

 

1. Rank tracking, backlink checkers, on page SEO analyzer.

2. Rank trackers.

3. Backlink checking.

4. A tool to help me get to the top of the SERPs without lifting a finger. Lol, just kidding, If there is a tool to help manage the link building process, it would be nice.

Please, dear deity-of-your-choice, not yet another rank checker. Absolutely the last thing the SEO world needs, IMO.
