More of the Best Website Marketing Tools To Increase Your Clicks

Larry Chase at WDFM recently published his "Top 10 Marketing Sites for 2006." (Somehow he overlooked WebMarketCentral, but he's probably saving that for the 2007 list.) Here are the best tools from his list plus a few featured here previously that belong in any "top" tools list.

Type in any search phrase, and SpyFu will show you:
- The top organic and paid search results
- The number of advertisers who have purchased that term
- Other terms also bought by these advertisers
- Clicks per day and cost per click

Keyword Cloud
A useful keyword density tool that provides a visual display of the most prominent keywords for any site, along with a keyword frequency and density table. Note that this tool works much better with IE than with FireFox.

Google AdWords: Keyword Tool
Enter a search phrase, and this Google tool will display related keywords along with advertiser competition and search volume; average cost per click and ad position by bid amount; and global search volume trends over time.

Check Rankings
A subscription-based service (free registration required) that provides daily reports of your site's ranking for keywords you choose across all the major search engines. A great tool for monitoring the results of your SEO efforts. For one-off or periodic checks, I still like the search engine rankings tool from Mike's Marketing Tools.

Finally, Backflip is still my favorite tool for organizing marketing research, and Free Essential Tools for Blogger Blogs from Quick Online Tips is a must-have list of tools for business blogging.

AHREFS tops the marketing blunder list of 2018

It’s Early in 2018 and AHREFS tops the marketing blunder list It’s only the first week in February and you are reading about the Metrics/Data supplier that has provided us with fodder by creating a huge marketing blunder, Ahrefs.

Ahrefs is world's biggest third-party database of search queries with refined monthly search volume and research metrics.  Their data is used by untold numbers of digital marketers across the world.  Arguably they are the industry leader in this type of data.  The only thing that they changed was how a tiny item in their metrics was being calculated. 
About a week prior to the effective date of the change, Ahrefs notified users that a change was coming to how they calculated a domain rating or DR.  They also stated that many sites would see their rankings drop.  I agree that a need for change was warranted.  What I don’t agree with how they calculated the change and its ramifications for roughly 75% of all websites.  

This past Friday evening around 11 P.…

Tip #3 to improve your digital marketing

Do Your Research You may have ideas for what is going to work best for your audience based on past experience with your ads, but taking the time to conduct thorough research and have data to support your actions is important. You may anticipate that your customers will behave a certain way, when in fact they go in a completely different direction. It’s essential to be prepared for this ahead of time and use the information you collect from research to planning your marketing strategy. Elliot Simmonds explains this concept below:

“ A lot of people use sponsored posts and other paid advertising, and it seems that many are happy to simply pay the money and watch the views and clicks roll in - even if some of those clicks are from individuals tangential to the product or service they're promoting.
