What is the best SEO management tool?
I am interesting in hearing people's recommendations for SEO management tools that will help with keyword rank tracking, backlink analysis and other SEO tools. I know some options are moz, woorank, positionly, cognitiveSEO, but I'm not that familiar with them yet and want to get started with the right tool. Thanks.
Talking about the SEO tools, it is an important device that helps you in better understanding of the website.
It also helps you in understanding the potential of your web page and how you can rank them.
Without SEO tools it would be very difficult for us to plan our strategies and find any kind of weakness on your website.
Imagine yourself, doing keyword research, and finding out the effective backlinks, and also keeping track of your competitor without SEO tools.
Wouldn't it be difficult for you ??
These are when your SEO tools are important and play their part.

Above mentioned are the Top 5 Best SEO Tools.
Moz is all time higher ranking tool but apart from that SEMrush is one of the best tool for SEO search purpose such as Keywords, Competitors etc...
It all depends, overall, the best tools to use are the Google ones, and they're free. But to execute a truly successful SEO strategy, you'll need as much insight as you can get. The tools I can't do without are Ahrefs, Moz and Semrush. They each have their areas of expertise, but I prefer to use Semrush, it's great for keyword identification and monitoring, but Ahrefs is the best backlink checker and website analysis tool. Aside from Google Webmaster.
I hope it helps.
Did you know that was have created a service that check your website positions and analyze your competitors in popular search engines? Real-time check of hundreds of keywords in multiple search engines including local search by countries and cities allows you to estimate your standings. This site is rankinity.com
As mentioned Arshish, experience is the best tool. Tool have to be used only for data extraction, comparizon, analysis, reports generation.
But no tool will replace human analysis and experience sharing.
When we answer to a RFP, experience is what we highlight first.
I have to vote for Moz. Their new tool is quite fascinating.
Those are all good tools. I would suggest doing a few trials with a couple campaigns and see what functions are best for what your doing and ease of "your" use of them.
I think MOZ is the best tool on the market, their new MOZ local tool is also a great way to ensure all of your local listings are updated and consistent. If you haven't tried MOZ yet, you should. I believe they have a free trial too.
Moz is good to start with. Though no tool is perfect and can't be considered as perfect SEO management tool. In-fact there is no such which you can call 'SEO Management'
These tools just help your analyse your backlinks, keywords, meta data, etc. but the information they provide may be or may not be relied upon
I second (twenty-second) mentioning Moz, in addition to Webmaster Tools. Definitely a powerful combo. I have been playing around with a tool called Rank Ranger. They popped on my radar on LinkedIn and I have actually been impressed with their features. Don't love the name, but the tool is fairly well developed :-) Not cheap, but worth exploring.
Moz is the best (and great value) tool-set we've come across... As Chris Romero mentions below, complement with SEM Rush (or searchmetrics) and possibly Spyfu and you're away ;-)
I prefer to go with google webmaster tools, which is a best way to track the keywords and backlinks. Other than that you can try seo moz which is a limited access to check keywords and competitors and for backlink - backlinkwatch is one of the best backlink tool where you can see upto 1000 backlinks.
Thanks for all of the great advice. There are a lot of recommendations for moz, which is reaffirming since I have heard great things about it. There are also a lot of other great recommendations that I am going to look into. Thanks again for the terrific advice!
Hi Mary-Alice! I suggest that you should try all these tools that you have mentioned first using their FREE versions, because we have different strategies, reports, etc. when comes to SEO. By doing so will give you a clear vision on what is the best tool that fits for your company. And please don't forget these tools also, Majestic SEO and BuzzStream.
I been using Google Adwords and social media marketing but still online video marketing serve as an SEO management tool because people are able to watched and get to know your deals in just a minute. =)
