The 4 SEO Tools You Need to Know

seo toolsSEO can be very time intensive. At 2theTop Design, we use several SEO tools to increase efficiency and deliver results for our clients. Join the Nashville SEO Group on Feb 28 to learn about 4 tools that can help improve your web presence.

While there are many, many tools that can help you to manage an Internet Marketing Campaign, there are a small number that we use regularly and can recommend.

These tools are simple enough to help a beginner and they’re powerful enough that most professional SEO’s use them.

Join the Nashville Internet Marketing Group on February 28 and learn how these SEO Tools can help you. We’ll be meeting on campus at Belmont University in McWhorter Hall, Room 114 at 6:30pm. It’s free to attend our monthly gathering. Come to learn and to network with us on the last Thursday night of the month.

The right SEO tools can help you identify SEO problems, find new opportunities, and even keep an eye on your competition. These tools can help you answer questions like:

  • Why doesn’t my website show up in Google?
  • How can I improve my SEO?
  • Where can I link my blog?
  • Why does another website come up #1 on Google?

While these tools alone can’t take the place of a qualified Inbound Marketing Consultant, they can help any website improve their SEO.

At this month’s Meetup, we will discuss these four SEO tools and how they can help your website’s visibility.

Raven Tools

Raven (based in Nashville) is a paid service that pulls together over 30 online marketing tools to help you with SEO, PPC, social media, and content.

Raven is capable of linking with Google Analytics and creating customized reports to give you a truly unique view into what is happening with your web presence.

Jeremy Rivera of Raven will be a guest presenter at the Feb 28 Nashville SEO Group meeting. You’ll get to hear more about Raven direct from the source!


SEOmoz provides a free service as well as paid SEO tools that can analyze important SEO metrics for a website. Even if you don’t use their tools, check out their fantastic blog. They also maintain the best Beginners Guide to SEO online. If you’re just starting to understand SEO, this Guide is required reading.


SEMRush is a paid service used by tens of thousands of SEO/SEM/PPC professionals. Even if you’re not a professional SEO, SEMRush can quickly give you insight that’s just about impossible to find with free SEO tools.  SEMRush collect SERP data for over 95 million keywords and 45 million domains. This massive amount of data gives you a valuable persepctive when targeting organic SEO or building your PPC campaigns.

Screaming Frog

The Screaming Frog SEO Spider Tool is a free desktop program that you can you use to spider (or crawl) a website to see its links, images, CSS, script, and apps from an SEO perspective. All of this data is presented in a spreadsheet format which can be easily exported into Excel. For larger websites, this tool will save you hours of looking through pages upon pages for titles, descriptions, headings, redirects, duplicate content, etc.

The free Screaming Frog spider tool lets you investigate up to 500 pages on a site. For larger sites, it’s worth the price to pay for a full version that removes the limit and gives you a few extra options.

Just like you wouldn’t use only a hammer to build an entire house, there is no single SEO tool to handle all tasks. Each of these tools stands out in its own right and should become part of your arsenal for improving your website.

Join us for the Meetup Thursday, Feb 28, 2013 at 6:30pm to take a deeper look at these SEO tools and how they can improve your SEO.
