My Favorite SEO Analytic Tools
BEST ANALYTICS TOOLS FOR SEO
Search Engine Optimization or SEO is the process of improving website traffic, by using analytic tools. For this developers and optimizers are constantly on the look-out for the best SEO analytic tools. The reality is, that for a lot of websites higher rankings equals more revenue. So any edge over the competition can have a big impact. This is true for many industries and verticals across online businesses. All it takes to see this is a look at popular search engine results pages (SERPs) for competitive keyword searches. If we peer into the world of online dating you will see companies jostling for the top spots on searches like “best dating spot.” The competition is especially fierce in niches where paid advertising opportunities are limited such as with gambling, adult content, or escorts and adult service providers. For example, take one of the largest escort sites skipthegames.app. The SERP for their name “skipthegames” has vast competition simply due to the overall volume of search inquiries. Thus, it should take no further convincing that if you are interested in improving your SEO game, it is worth using some of the best SEO analytic tools.
Some of my favorite SEO analytic tools which I use on a daily basis are:
- Mozbar: This powerful Tool is able to generate an instant report on any website being viewed. To be armed with this Tool when one is on a SEO mission is to have an ace up one’s sleeve. The Mozbar button is located conveniently in the browser toolbar. Mozbar can be located as desired, on top or on the bottom of the browsing window at all times. This toolbar has three main classes of Data: Page attributes, Link Data, and Page Elements. Page Attributes show internal onsite features of optimization, such as robots and load time. The page link data can also be extracted. Next, the Link Data has important data like links and ranking factor. Page Elements opens up the basic data on the on-page SEO. The title, description, H1 and other tags are all displayed. But in order to use Mozbar to its true potential, Users must join as member and pay the regular subscription. Only then the inner data will be made available to the User, and fully assist SEO efforts.
- SEOWorkers Analysis Tool: This is an unbelievably handy Tool, which can be plugged into a website URL to generate a report. This can be any website, even if it doesn’t belong to the User. It does not dig out any new information, but it saves a lot of analysis time. The speed report is also quite detailed. Some are even of a category that Users normally don’t think of checking, like the HTTP Headers Check. Helpful icons are also provided to rate the User’s efforts at analysis.
- WooRank: This Analytic Tool can generate a report literally in seconds. It is not just another free analyzer, but can provide significant insights that are not normally accessed. The geodata is particularly insightful. Social shareability also vies for attention. WooRank has an extraordinary ability to aggregate the maximum social network data in a single place. Even more outstanding is the mobile section, which provides a surprisingly high level of data and perspective. While it sometimes presents inaccurate data, it has a high level of data collection, and works with extreme ease. Its mobile optimization overview makes it an essential tool in today’s market.
- Ubersuggest: Ubersuggest is an all-rounder. It can intuitively guess what the objective of the User is and how it should be approached. It lets the User know what the User’s competitors are doing and how the User needs to adjust tactics to take advantages of Market weaknesses and opportunities. Starting with Ubersuggest is quite easy, and gives the User instant access to the User’s target domain or keyword. It is a great alternative to the more well known Google Keyword Planner, which is now beginning to age. The User needs to first run a search for a primary keyword. Next the User must click ‘Keyword Ideas’ which is located on the left sidebar. This will take the User to a comprehensive report. As the results start coming in, a long list of Keywords, related to the ‘Seed’ Keyword, are provided. The following data is also provided here: Volume, Average CPC (Cost Per Click), PD or Estimation of the Competition in Paid Search, and the Estimated Competition in Organic Search. By going through a few more steps, this Tool actually searches keywords and creates content marketing samples. This may be the ultimate tool for SEO Analytics.
- Google Analytics: Google Analytics is the original SEO Analytics Tool, and nothing can be achieved in this field without it. Known for its high quality and detailed information, Google Analytics is the most powerful SEO Analytics Tools of all. All other Analytic Tools have been derived from Google Analytics.
- Google Search Console: The focus of this Tool has to do with ‘Search’ and ‘Optimization’. Some of the best insights are available on the Dashboard itself. It is with this Dashboard on the Console, that the SEOs and Marketers must keep constant touch with on a regular basis. The Data may be the same or very similar to Google Analytics, but it is presented in a manner (on a Dashboard) that renders it extremely simple and easy to use. While it somewhat reduces the scope of manipulation, it also makes the User’s job more positively active and simple. The Link Data is one of the most important data sets. As a defensive action, Users need to stay up-to-date with toxic Backlinks. It is obvious that Google Search Console is indispensable. The data, the tools and the power are all essential.
