10 Brilliant SEO Tools That Will Help You Use SEO Like A Pro

10 Brilliant SEO Tools That Will Help You Use SEO Like A Pro

The SEO score of a single website depends on many different factors. It usually comprises of on-page elements, inbound links and social relevance as demonstrated on-page. As such, this score cannot be said to have a direct and undeniable impact on your rankings. If you have a better SEO score than your first competitor, it does not necessarily mean that you will be ranked higher.

Google has a very complex way of determining who is to be ranked where. It’s not infallible, of course, but it’s difficult to simplify and explain in detail. It relies on quality and relevance scores, deriving from different data.

When we are talking about the SEO score, which can be measured using different tools, its importance primarily lies in the fact that it can show you what you are doing wrong. It can show you which ranking factors you are missing out on and how you can improve your website so that it is ranked better in search engine results pages (SERPs). Below, you will find a list of useful SEO tools that every webmaster should have in order to define the obstacles and overcome them. This will help to rank their website higher in search engines.

                  Alexa Rank is an important parameter of your website rating. The scale is defined by the total number of domains on the web. The lower the number, the better the rating – for example, Wikipedia is rated as the sixth best website in the world, while lifehack.org holds the 3,058th place.

                  Schema Creator
                  schemacreator

                    Schema Creator is a tool used to interpret your text content for web crawlers. By using microdata in HTML, you can clarify the context of your content and optimize your pages for search engines. For example, the word “Apple” can be both interpreted as a fruit or as technological company known worldwide. This tool is recommended to be used for online branding.

                    Virante Author Rank
                    viranteauthorrank

                      This tool will greatly help any blog admin. If you are running a website with a great number of contributors, instead of wasting time on conducting deep research on them, you can just use the link to their Google+ profile and evaluate their authorship. The scale ranks from 1 to 10 – this is a logarithmic scale meaning that you can easily scale up from 1 to 4 but from that point on it gets much harder to go higher. The higher the author rank of your contributors is, the better you will scale in search engines and you will not have to worry about content plagiarism as much.

                      SEO Score – Should I Be Worried If It’s Not Good Enough?

                      “Good enough” is a relative notion in this case, because even if there is a numerical score for your website produced by the tool you are currently using or testing, it is not 100% reliable. What you should pay attention to are the individual constituents of this numerical value.

                      Namely, improving everything that gets evaluated as “not good enough” or “there’s room for improvement” will influence the different scores Google uses in ranking, and ultimately improve your website’s position.

                      So, what you need to do is stop worrying and get down to business!

                      8 Replacements for Google Notebook

                      8 Replacements for Google Notebook

                      Exploring alternatives to Google Notebook? There are more than a few ‘notebooks’ available online these days, although choosing the right one will likely depend on just what you use Google Notebook for.

                      1. Zoho Notebook
                        If you want to stick with something as close to Google Notebook as possible, Zoho Notebook may just be your best bet. The user interface has some significant changes, but in general, Zoho Notebook has pretty similar features. There is even a Firefox plugin that allows you to highlight content and drop it into your Notebook. You can go a bit further, though, dropping in any spreadsheets or documents you have in Zoho, as well as some applications and all websites — to the point that you can control a desktop remotely if you pare it with something like Zoho Meeting.
                      2. Evernote
                        The features that Evernote brings to the table are pretty great. In addition to allowing you to capture parts of a website, Evernote has a desktop search tool mobil versions (iPhone and Windows Mobile). It even has an API, if you’ve got any features in mind not currently available. Evernote offers 40 MB for free accounts — if you’ll need more, the premium version is priced at $5 per month or $45 per year. Encryption, size and whether you’ll see ads seem to be the main differences between the free and premium versions.
                      3. Net Notes
                        If the major allure for Google Notebooks lays in the Firefox extension, Net Notes might be a good alternative. It’s a Firefox extension that allows you to save notes on websites in your bookmarks. You can toggle the Net Notes sidebar and access your notes as you browse. You can also tag websites. Net Notes works with Mozilla Weave if you need to access your notes from multiple computers.
                      4. i-Lighter
                        You can highlight and save information from any website while you’re browsing with i-Lighter. You can also add notes to your i-Lighted information, as well as email it or send the information to be posted to your blog or Twitter account. Your notes are saved in a notebook on your computer — but they’re also synchronized to the iLighter website. You can log in to the site from any computer.
                      5. Clipmarks
                        For those browsers interested in sharing what they find with others, Clipmarks provides a tool to select clips of text, images and video and share them with friends. You can easily syndicate your finds to a whole list of sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Digg. You can also easily review your past clips and use them as references through Clipmarks’ website.
                      6. UberNote
                        If you can think of a way to send notes to UberNote, it can handle it. You can clip material while browsing, email, IM, text message or even visit the UberNote sites to add notes to the information you have saved. You can organize your notes, tag them and even add checkboxes if you want to turn a note into some sort of task list. You can drag and drop information between notes in order to manage them.
                      7. iLeonardo
                        iLeonardo treats research as a social concern. You can create a notebook on iLeonardo on a particular topic, collecting information online. You can also access other people’s notebooks. It may not necessarily take the place of Google Notebook — I’m pretty sure my notes on some subjects are cryptic — but it’s a pretty cool tool. You can keep notebooks private if you like the interface but don’t want to share a particular project. iLeonardo does allow you to follow fellow notetakers and receive the information they find on a particular topic.
                      8. Zotero
                        Another Firefox extension, Zotero started life as a citation management tool targeted towards academic researchers. However, it offers notetaking tools, as well as a way to save files to your notebook. If you do a lot of writing in Microsoft Word or Open Office, Zotero might be the tool for you — it’s integrated with both word processing software to allow you to easily move your notes over, as well as several blogging options. Zotero’s interface is also available in more than 30 languages.

                      I’ve been relying on Google Notebook as a catch-all for blog post ideas — being able to just highlight information and save it is a great tool for a blogger.

                      Advertising

                      In replacing it, though, I’m starting to lean towards Evernote. I’ve found it handles pretty much everything I want, especially with the voice recording feature. I’m planning to keep trying things out for a while yet — I’m sticking with Google Notebook until the Firefox extension quits working — and if you have any recommendations that I missed when I put together this list, I’d love to hear them — just leave a comment!
