Website Auditor Review – SEO PowerSuite

I’ve been involved in SEO for over 13 years now, which is a long time. It’s been an interesting road, looking back. I’ve seen a lot of crazy changes happen with Google, many SE’s disappear, and many start up.

In that time I’ve used a lot of tools, many I can’t even remember the name’s of. WebCEO used to be one of my favorites before I found out about SEO PowerSuite. I still use some tools like SEMRush, Majestic, Ahrefs and others, but when it comes to creating nice reports for customers, I still like SEO PowerSuite by LinkAssistant.

The fact that I can run reports that can be labeled with my company name, logo, etc – and easily sent to that customer/business makes it more than useful.

Why I use it

I like to use Website Auditor to create reports for customers that lets them see issues with their sites in detailed or summary views, depending on on the customer, of course. It allows me to show them all of the issues that were found with the site, add notes (if needed) and send it out via PDF or HTML (I prefer PDF).

I normally use PDF’s so they can open it up easier and have a copy of the issues on their machine. I don’t worry about them having the “issues” in front of them, because most people that are looking for a professional SEO are looking for someone else to do the work. Plus, most of these clients aren’t that savvy, so they wouldn’t be able to make these fixes anyway.

By running these simple reports on my own machine, I feel more in control. I haven’t tried Raven…well, I have, but I’ll admit that I didn’t take the time to really learn it. But I like having tools on my own machine. I always have the reports, even if I go on vacation and can’t find WiFi (been there).

As an SEO it’s important to have many different tools when you’re doing Website Audits, Link audits, etc.

What it Looks Like

Website Auditor provides you with a very detailed view of issues going on with your site, from internal and external links to missing pages, meta tags, etc. I love the simplicity of it.

* I also use Screaming Frog at times, but when it comes to reporting I always use Website Auditor.

The views are awesome.

As you can see, you can create summaries or detailed views for these reports, giving your customer an easy-to-access report that shows them exactly what’s going on with their site.

Most customers LOVE these reports, even when they’re clueless as to what they mean. I’ve actually given a report to a company who used it to fix some issues, but then hired me to finish out the larger issues that they didn’t feel comfortable with. While I didn’t get the “big” contract, I still got a client.

There’s also a other tools within this app, such as content analysis, domain strength, etc. — all valuable tools that can help you dig deeper into the clients’ website(s) when you have them under contract.

What version should you buy?

The issue with this app is that you really need to purchase the Enterprise version in order to unlock the branded reports. While this does cost a bit more, you can do a lot more with this version compared to the professional version.

The Enterprise version allows you to create branded reports for clients, which means that you can easily add your company name and logo to the reports you send to your hot leads.

There’s a ton of options in this tool, so it’s well worth the cost if you’re serious about getting more clients.

How to use it to get more clients

When I first purchased the software years ago, I had this big plan to build tons of reports for local clients. That didn’t happen. The one negative about this software is that you’ll have to wait for the reports to run, especially if you have larger sites with tons of pages.

However, that’s pretty much the same for most other, similar, tools that I’ve tried (online and off). They all take time to be created, because they all rely on various resources. What I like about this one is that I can drill down specifics much easier, much similar to Raven. If I want to analyze social media, I can. Pages, links, etc. – I can keep them or remove them.

How I use this software is simple: I submit “applications” or inquiries to companies that have been looking for help, or local companies that I run across that need help.

Tip: check out sites like YellowPages.com and find companies that are already advertising there. These companies are already paying money and not quite sure what they’re doing…they could use a pro SEO to help them get more traffic.

When I find a warm lead, I run a report for them and then give them a brief summary of what I found with the report (and Screaming Frog, sometimes). I sent them the branded report and do my best to sell them on the service.

Pretty simple. For those that love SEO and want to do this full time, this is a great tool. Absolutely awesome.

You can pair this up with RankTracker once you get the client to sign in, and you can then use SEO Spyglass or SEMRush to get a better look at what they have going on with keywords, links, etc. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of Spyglass as it takes a while to run, whereas Ahrefs, Majestic, Moz and SEMRush are very fast as they already have data in there. But if you have it and want to run additional queries, it can be useful.

RankTracker takes a bit of time to run, but as long as you have Proxies you can get the data much quicker.

Summary

This programĀ is a great tool for any serious professional SEO, new or old. I’ve used a lot of tools, including Moz Pro recently, but I just can’t find anything that works as well. This program gives you everything you need to quickly create powerful, branded reports to send to your leads and clients.

What this tool does is run website audits for your client’s websites, complete with on and off-site settings to choose from. It also gives you additional tools for content analysis, domain strength and more. You can set it up to use Google Analytics as well.

Stomping The Search Engines 2 Review

I was supposed to have this posted up a few days ago, but I’ve had little time to get it going…

Originally, I was going to have a very in-depth review, but since I’m too busy – I’ll keep it brief.

Plus, they’re apparently giving it away (from what I just read on another blog, which reminded me to post this)?

www.GoStomping.com

I got my review copy of Stomping The Search Engines 2 last Friday, but didn’t get to REALLY check everything out until Saturday afternoon. Man, this stuff is crazy…

I’m a big fan of Dan Thies. The guy is brilliant. But, ALL of these guys at Stompernet are like scientific freaks or something?

Honestly, when I was going through the DVD – I thought “crap… this is going to be entirely over my head”. But, thankfully, it actually wasn’t.

All of my Internet Marketing career has been spent on learning about traffic. SEO has been the one area in which I’ve spent (by far) the most time learning. I have read so much stuff and watched so many videos – I got “certified” without even taking any practice tests or even studying.

But, I was never REALLY an expert, nor have I ever claimed to be (unlike a certain individual has claimed I did…forum clowns always bring the circus to you ;-).

I have always felt like there was so much more to learn… I was hungry for more information, and after going through Stomping The Search Engines 2 — I can honestly say that I am “full” now.

The DVD is simply amazing. No joke.

Then there’s The Net Effect, which is much like Search MarketingĀ  Standard, but seems to be more thorough. I was definitely surprised by the information they gave away in this journal.

But… the DVD is what was mind blowing.

If I didn’t recommend it – I most certainly would NOT be doing so.

I HIGHLY recommend this DVD, if you can get it! SEO should be the backbone of ANY internet Business.

www.GoStomping.com has information on it.

UPDATE: They canceled today’s launch and moved it to TOMORROW (Thursday), September 4th. Apparently they had issues with their fulfillment process…

Also, Stomping The Search Engines 2 IS FREE!

Here’s another Stomping The Search Engines 2 Review!

Niche Annihilation Review – The Truth

Alright, so you might have read my last post about my Testimonial for Niche Annihilation Method that I posted last week… I’ve been tied up throughout the weekend and even today, but the Product has officially launched today and there’s a ton of Video Bonuses that come with it.

I’ve stated that, in the past, I have RARELY given Testimonials for ANY product… phpFox was the last product I wrote a Testimonial for and that was over 2 years ago.

This product is the first one I wrote a Testimonial for since then (knowingly… there might be someone who quoted me on another product out there?)… and I ended up winning a prize because of it (although I HONESTLY did not realize there was one!). Note that I put “honestly”… that’s because I really do not want people thinking I wrote it for the prize. I really did not know there was one. My Testimonial was the honest-to-god truth. I was actually pretty happy and felt really “refreshed” when I finished the book… I felt that it hit on so many subjects that other Niche “Marketing” books talk about.

I don’t think this book is for anyone who is very successful in Affiliate Marketing or any type of Niche Marketing… I DO think this is a great resource for anyone who understands the basics of the business but who feels that they need an extra boost to get more sales. The book is currently running at $47.00 – but it’s SO much better than all of those $97 books out there being sold on Clickbank.

Check out the Sales page for Niche Annihilation Method here

Look at the Bonus section, too! There’s some great stuff in this one and it’s definitely worth the purchase if you’re not already “advanced” in the subject.

Sneaky Affiliate Cheats Review

Alright, so as you know – I HATE most ebooks. Most Ebooks on Affiliate Marketing come from Clickbank and most of them are all trash… garbage, junk, whatever. They suck.

When I first heard about Sneaky Affiliate Cheats, it was from a reader of my blog who asked about it…

Now, originally, I thought this was another Chris McNeeny book so I wasn’t interested. But then I realized it wasn’t the same guy…

So, I was curious… I took the bite.

At first, I thought “here we go again…” and was ready to close the book. But, to be honest, it started getting interesting. I found a lot of useful information in this book and I have already implemented a few of these tricks and have seen some success so far.

The book is 76 pages long, but it also comes with a few other interesting ebooks – as well as some useful videos that aren’t even listed on the Sales page (not at the time I looked). There’s 5 videos and a few were pretty intriguing.

So, what do I think about Sneaky Affiliate Cheats?

I honestly like it. I couldn’t put it down once I started getting a little deeper into it.

The price is a little steep at $77.00, but it’s definitely a good investment for those of you who are serious about Affiliate Marketing.

Is it for everyone? of course not… if you’re not serious about Affiliate Marketing, DO NOT waste your money! But if you are – the choice is yours!

PS – It also comes with an Affiliate Link Cloaker but I haven’t had time to play with it yet!

Is Day Job Killer Or Google Assassin Any Good?

Oddly enough, I just posted a blog about one irritating “Guru”, and now I’m about to explain something else…

I have gotten 7 emails over the past 3 days about Google Assassin (DJK II) and Day Job Killer (DJK I), asking me if they were worth the money.

I will say this quickly: NO.

Sure, the guy made a lot of money as an Affiliate and I do believe he’s good at what he does… but do I believe in his products? Nope! I love his Sales Letters and Copywriting ability, but I think his products are NOT worth the money. Period.

I tell people to either join Wealthy Affiliate University or to download Quit Your Day Job, although you’re going to learn A LOT more from Wealthy Affiliate due to it’s extremely helpful training program and community. Either way, you’ll save a TON of money by staying away from these other books and programs.

DJK is full of hype and disappointment, to be quite blunt. I don’t believe in half of the stuff he teaches and the rest is very, very simple information that I teach on this site…for FREE.

Why spend $97 on an ebook like that? It’s pointless.

So that’s my “review of Day Job Killer” and DJK Assassin/Google Assassin. Sorry to disappoint anyone that was hoping for a positive review of Chris McNeeny’s products, but I just can’t do it… I’m sure the guy is a nice guy and very good at Affiliate Marketing, but I feel that the products are hyped up garbage, to say the least. Affiliate Project X, DJK, Google Assassin, etc…

Just watched TheSecret.tv Video

I’ve finally got to see TheSecret Video and I have to admit… at first I figured it would be some kind of cheesy, overly repeated, money making scam or something.

But actually it had nothing to do with “making money”…well, in general. It was about the Laws of Attraction. You know “positive thinking equals positive results”, etc, etc. The same stuff you can read on Napoleon Hill’s books or hear Anthony Robbins or Brian Tracy speak about.

Compass Bank: The one bank you should absolutely NEVER do Business with

Looking to give your hard earned money away for free? Try Compass Bank! They’ve got every hidden fee in the book… so many that you will NEVER have a penny left!

So again, I’m having to deal with Compass Bank and I requested that they either take some of their fees off of my account or else all of their fees. Either way, I’m done with this bullsh*t company.

More horror stories…

Why Most Social Network Scripts Suck.

Everything posted in this post is my own Personal Opinion.
So, some of you might be here after seeing me argue with some moron (in my opinion) about how crappy his Business ethics (from what I’ve dealt with) are. Now I decided to make another post and keep it out of the forums.

I find it funny that the owner of this “certain script” claims I stole the script I purchased. Without proof of me not buying – he chose to say there was no proof of me buying… uhhhh, how did he come to this conclusion? I told him right from the start “me and my Business partner purchased the script” and yet he continues to accuse me of theft? Interesting Business Tactics!
