Some of these SEO software recommendations are affiliate links – however all these tools I use in class and for my clients – they are the best internet marketing software choices in our opinion.
SEMRush – You can see where you rank, where your competitors rank, if your competition is doing Paid or Organic SEO and so much more!
Market Samurai – I use the SEO Competition section specifically.
KeywordSpy – I like this one for seeing the text that your competitors are using in paid search
Whitespark Local Citation Finder – What website mention your company? Good for Local Search
Moz.com Tools – You get 30 Days Free to their full suite of tools
Constant Contact – YES to Email Marketing! It is still the best ROI for small businesses. Maybe you don’t have the budget to do a full-blown SEO plan, but starting with $20 per month you can get world-class support from my friends at Constant Contact and start reaching out to your best network – referrals from people you already know.

One of the most frequent questions I get in class is – what tools do YOU use for SEO? The SEO software tools above are best in class. Some carry a bit of a price tag with them, and there are others that I use – but these will help your drill down to the most important aspects of doing an SEO audit of your site (or your competitor’s site).
