In my previous blogs, I have gone through some basic SEO tips and also steps to be followed while hiring a Search Engine Optimization company. We know that Search Engines are essential for your website getting noticed. It is really a great challenge to optimize your website if you don’t have the necessary tools.
Google Webmaster Tools:
Webmaster tools help in improving your target keywords by providing indexing issues, keyword visibility, impressions, average position of search items and the click through rate. You may have a look on our previous blogs on Webmaster guidelines.
Google Insights for Search:
Another amazing too from Google is their Insights. This allows you to input any keyword and see the distribution of that keyword. It gives a wide range of information from the globe to a small city. Insights also provide a list of other relevant terms that brings traffic to your website.
URI Valet is a major weapon for SEO. This tool performs technical audits and gives the user statistics on server headers, the time it takes to download, internal links, external links, object details, as well as a text to HTML ratio.
Xenu’s Link Sleuth is also a great tool for website audits. This gets directly downloaded to your desktop. This tool analyzes your website and gives report on broken links. Moreover Link verification is done on “normal” links, images, frames, plug-ins, backgrounds, local image maps, style sheets, scripts and java applets. It displays a continuously updated list of URLs which can be sorted on different criteria.
When you want to check multiple rankings and have little time, the Rank Checker tool offers a quick and easy interface that allows you to check where a site ranks on Google. In fact This tool runs directly off your browser, which can cause a couple problems. Localization of search results can affect true search results and if you are signed into a personal browser account, it will use your previous browsing history and tendencies.
SEO Toolbar from SEOmoz and Shared Count:
These are other tools for doing SEO. Among this, Shared Count is a slightly different SEO tool which has some social side also. It fives the number of Facebook likes, Tweets, Stumbles etc. With these amazing tools and some practice, you can start building awareness through optimizing your current webpage.
