I downloaded the show, thanks for sharing. I was actually using most of the SEO tools mentioned here, apart from a couple. Nice coverage overall, will be looking forward to next episodes too.
This post is really helpful. It is like quality check list useful at final check point. Sometimes I wonder how to learn all these 136 SEO tools. I just looked for how dofollow or nofollow would effect the SEO & SEM. I agree dofollow blogs are abused by non related comments that add nothing to the post itself. I am interested to see this topic in “SEO Concerns”. I feel explanation about this topic adds value to the forthcoming posts. Regards.
It’s one of the few toolbars I actually would install in my browser.
Many thanks for the great SEO tools not sure if you are aware of these tools but they are also pretty good www. backlinkwatch.com/index.php and www. linkdiagnosis.com
