This is a list of the tools that we use to optimize, communicate and analyse as part of our Digital Marketing activities.  This list is updated constantly.

Last Updated March 2020

SEO Tools

SEMrush

SEMrush is an online service that helps companies execute digital marketing methods, such as SEO campaigns. This all-in-one digital marketing program that helps you run SEO, pay per click (PPC), social networks (SMM) and content marketing campaigns.

With SEMrush, you can identify trends that occur within your industry niche. Audit your SEO on the page and help you improve your pages. This allows you to better understand your page and optimize it for SEO for better lead generation.

They have a number of free elements that can be upgraded:

Rank Tracker

Rank Tracker is the most customizable position monitoring tool you can get. Whether you need to track your positions on Google globally, or locally, on any of the more than 400 supported search engines, check the first 50 results or 1,000, do it once a week or three times a day, Check Universal, Maps results and monitor those of your competitors … Rank Tracker does it all.

And the best part is that all checks are unlimited, including any number of websites, search engines and keywords.

Website Auditor

Like search engine bots, WebSite Auditor tracks your entire website to find and audit all resources, both internal and external: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Flash, images, videos and much more.

The tool also allows you to track your site in the same way that Google, Bing, or Yahoo does, following the instructions in your robots.txt file, so you can view and analyze your pages in the same way that a search engine does. search.

SEO Spyglass

Find all links to any domain with the most updated index on the Web, SEO PowerSuite Link Explorer, exclusive to SEO SpyGlass.

To ensure that your list of links is as complete as possible, the tool also allows you to import your links directly from Google Analytics and Google Search Console, an integration that you won’t find in any other link checking tool.

Keyword Finder

Kwfinder is not a new tool, but when I tried it before it didn’t seem so interesting. Partly because I didn’t need it, I had gotten used to using the keyword planner, it had my system, and it was free. I tried KWFinder again when the Google planner started grouping keyword variants, and then stop showing the exact search volume.

Hosting

The hosting you choose will determine the overall consistency of the experience that your organic visitors (and all in general) will have when accessing the website. If you want to avoid server errors and page timeouts and prevent users from returning to Google to search again then you need a solid web server that you can trust. Ultimately, you will want a hosting provider that supports your organic efforts, rather than preventing them. Let’s look at five key features that define an SEO-compatible hosting company.  We don’t recommend lightly here:

Siteground

SiteGround is a hosting that started operating in 2004. Since then they have not stopped growing and now have more than 400 employees and host about 2 million domains.

They are one of the few providers that offer availability guarantees on their servers (uptime). On their website they ensure that the support team is available 24 hours a day during every day of the year. Also, it seems that they care a lot about the loading speed.

Bluehost

Bluehost is the star of the Endurance group, a conglomerate that brings together similar services such as HostGator or iPage. Note this is a giant leap away fro HostGator. It is a huge hosting, with figures that impress. For example, they have more than 750 employees and host more than two million websites.  This web hosting is great if you need a lot of space or do not want to have a limit on the monthly data transfer. Another positive aspect is that they include the domain name and pre-integrate a connection with the CloudFlare CDN.

Elementor PRO

Elementor is the page builder we use in many of our websites. Page Builders are very difficult to recommend.  You need to balance adaptability with overall speed (see hosting below) and some of the Page Bilfers put there WILL slow both the front end and back end of your WordPress installation.

Elementor brings together both aspects of your design – control of headers and footers without penalizing your site in Google!
