“SEO is not something you do anymore. It’s what happens when you do everything else right.” — Chad Pollitt

In a third part of our Marketing Tools series, we will exclusively cover SEO tools.

There is a lot of said and written about SEO and yet it is still some sort of a black magic for most. According to Wikipedia Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of affecting the visibility of a website or a web page in a search engine’s unpaid results – often referred to as “natural,” “organic,” or “earned” results. In general, the earlier (or higher ranked on the search results page), and more frequently a site appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine’s users.

Since there are hundreds websites offering free and paid SEO tools to help you get to the top of the search results, I have combined a not-so-comprehensive list that will get you on the track but will not overwhelm.

  • Moz tools – really great comprehensive set of paid and free tools, also a blog to teach you what to do and how
