Hi everyone and happy holidays !! A brief introduction as I am a newbie here, I'm Stephen Rivera and I run a very busy Web Design company in Palm Beach Florida. For 20+ years before starting my company, I worked as a Software Engineer for many Fortune 500 companies including IBM, Office Depot, and Royal Caribbean, coding in Delphi, VB, .NET, Php frameworks.... Been doing some SEO and traditional marketing for my clients for the past two years or so and still trying to catch up to SEO best practices....

My main concern is the long time it takes to fully implement SEO and SEM effectively even for one client, and furthermore, the fact that this work requires the use of so many different sites and tools, just wondering if any of you have found tools such as Internet Business P..., WordPos..., etc... useful at all ? Are they worth it, will they save me time, are there any other programs like that which combine things like wordtracker and Google keywords tools into a good, integrated framework??

Any help will be greatly appreciated, I am all for cutting down the time it takes to deploy SEO for a client, and maybe there are no shortcuts, but it would be nice to have some of the work automated !! :cool:

Hi whitepage; with all due respect, I was expecting to hear from some of the long term, regular posters here(as you seem to have joined right after my post...), and hopefully someone who does SEO professionally. Yes, I have tested the free version of Webc...(Your reply link used a different product name, hmm), one of the many packages I've played around with...

HI Joseph;

I do use that one once in a while, looks like there are a number of SEO applications which are very similar(IPB, WebCeo, WebPosition, SEO Studio, SEO Administrator, etc...), I am curious to hear if any of the veteran SEO guys here use any of those or recommend one in particular, trying to bypass a long trial and error and perhaps purchasing the wrong package, especially if I don't need it, so far I have had good results just doing the research and deployment manually....

anybody tried IBP, internet business promoter ? ....just give it a try guys ...

Hey Stephen

I have tested a few automation tools over the years and, even though it can become incredibly tedious, I have more confidence doing stuff by hand. The most automated thing I use nowadays is Find and Replace. Then again, when I started in SEO I only had Windows 3.11 with Notepad and an early version of Photoshop.

Should be someone around who has some modern fandango SEO automation tools.

The forum's been fairly quiet throughout the holidays (hangovers and family visits I suspect):( so maybe hang out a bit and check up on your thread once in a while. g'luck.

more webdesigners should be aware of this new tool : ministatus.com, not only it returns most importat SEO and SMO data but also it does a real value estimation of the queried URL.

I used to combine using of seoelite and keyword elite. But now I do SEO jobs for my own sites mainly manually because search engines and other services have blocked such automatic scripts and thus it is hard to help in your jobs. :)

All the best,

I hear you, I wonder the same about the tools...

Not sure what to make of the previous post, suffice to say that reviews and search results like you mentioned are constantly "Gamed" by the tool developer themselves. many tie the so called "Review & Testimonial" site you find was built by the tool company, its all a complete sham, that is the main reason I join forums like these and hope I get sincere replies by real pros :-)

All the best,

I agreed with you, I do not use freeware or any other software when it comes to optimizing the page, sometimes your site can mark as a spammer or worst that google will intend to block your site. do it manually and as long as it is a white hat.

I agree - manual is the best.

Google dosen't like these automated systems.
If I use them every once in a while Google comes back and states there are automated searches running and denies me access to Google.

Rule of thumb - the simpler the better.
