So, here is what I know. Seo can make or break you. Easy enough, right? But how do you go about implementing an seo strategy?
Well, two options for you are seo software or do it yourself. Now, I know some people who don’t even bother with keyword research, density or even bolding any keywords. They just write quality stuff and the backlinks flow freely to them. So, you have 2 ways to get in Google’s good graces….seo and links. In my opinion, building quality links takes awhile, while a hot seo plan can put you on the first page in a week. Yes, it can….I have done it.
I can tell you this, any of the seo software I have used didn’t do anything more for me then what I could do myself. Now that could be the result of the quality of the product. Many times, I tested out free products to review them for you and they sucked. But there are great seo softwares out there; seomoz for instance.
The dilemma for me is that I think software comes in handy for large ventures or people/businesses running many sites. A couple of blogs or sites and I think one could handle the seo on their own. Blog seo is a bit different from static site seo so you need to do your research. A little hard work won’t kill you.
I also know people who swear by their seo software and that’s great for them. It all comes down to personal choice. And I believe product. But in the end, if you can take your blog to the top with some research and choice placement of keywords, why wouldn’t you do so?
I want to hear your opinions on the matter and if you use seo software, which one do you use?
