Hey Timur, this was no joke for sure. This is an awesome list — so many great tools mentioned. Have you used it before? I tried to keep the list focused on pure SEO tools.

Fantastic List of awesome tools. You nailed it once again Brian. Never heard of Whitespark before.

Thanks so much for featuring Seed Keywords. I like everything about your website except that the reading section is way too narrow. I am aware that it is easier to read if it is a boxed layout but when it comes to a resources page like this one, a small box with a right sidebar may not be the most optimal choice. The reading section of this page is around px. Maybe you can try different layouts for different pages depending on the nature of the page or post.
Easier Reading Vs. Less Scrolling. We actually tested the lack of sidebar and it made blog posts hard to read. But it may not be the same for guides like this. Good suggestion. Brian, Can you give a more detailed explaination of quicksprout? I get to the page where i can change the google extension, but still no results. But when i change it, nothing comes up.

Thanks Nirmala. Let me know of if you really like any of the new tools you found from this guide. I LOVE the Microdata Generator tool you shared, I have never seen that one before, and have been looking for something similar for quite some time. I wonder how much will it take spanish bloggers to translate this post and make it seem as if it was their great, original idea…. Does that happen a lot, Brandon? Interesting Brandon. Well good thing your English is really good. Hi Brian, great list! I could provide you with a demo if you wish. That tool is called Source Hunter. Great list Brian.
Pitchbox is the one which i personally like for outreaching prospective bloggers in a particular niche. Thanks for sharing the list. I will look forward to trying and testing each of them. I get about 5 to 10 emails from interesting blogs, like yours. You have great headings, so I open them. How do you organize your inbox? I had to force myself to stop reading.

Many recommendations are very excplicit. Fail Brian — it is necessary to rewrite the report! Hello, Brian! I would like to recommend it to include into your list of tools. Let me know. Hey Brian, awesome job again on this article! I simply love all the SEO tips you give us.
Thanks again for another great post. I would mention Rankscanner. Just wanna let you know. Hey Micky, thanks I appreciate that. I was just writing my list of tools to help small business understand SEO a little better and give them some tools to check some things themselves. I thought I would check my email for some inspiration. OMG this list is absolutely ridiculously amazing and a perfect example of your skyscraper technique. That filtering tool is something I also think people will use more often. It makes massive lists much easier to sift through and get value from.
I LOVE what I do for a living vacation rentals but this industry is changing so fast I had to put my nose to the grindstone quickly and educate myself! Brian, your blogs and information on your site is worth a college education to me. I am SO thankful for all that you put out there! Shared everywhere. Now to roll up my SEO sleeves and get busy! This old gal has work to do! Keep me posted on how things go for you.

Congratulations for it. Thumbs up, this makes my job much easier.
This guide took a ton of effort to put together. I am a new blogger and I do not have any to add.
I just wanted to express my gratitude for the lists above which is a great help for us starting bloggers. How fast do your fingers run? Man, you never go short of good, oh wait, the best contents regarding SEO. Loved every bit of it and read like three times too, lol. But most of the time spent for this guide was in-depth research. It was really buggy and slow for me. Hey Daniel, its a plugin we developed in-house. Great list of tools. Better than majestic I could say. I am using alexa to check the traffic of a site where I want to create a backlink, but those penalty tools are really helpful because you can see the estimated traffic a site has.
Super awesome list with a ton of great resources. I will be definitely sharing this one. You always provide great value and I am sure you will continue to do so.

Incredibly comprehensive list. A pad with an R-Value of 3. I personally consider deeper shoulder season to be when it dips to around 15F. Late September or early October in the Colorado high country usually. I make do with a Z-Lite, but something with a better R-Value is preferred by many. A less expensive solution? Combine it with a thinner and light foam pad to up the R-Value.
A cheap way to increase the versatility of your sleeping pad system. I prefer this system to one big, and puncture prone, sleeping pad. More and more people are using their mobile devices as part of their backpacking toolkit. Smart devices take decent to very good photos , are useful for navigation and have many field appropriate apps.
Great post! Your advice fits me pretty closely. A pack is always Too Heavy. I love your musings. Keep it coming. You help so many of us!!! I just wanted to say I effing love you man. Your blog has been my go to source of info as I begin my backpacking journey. I love how straight forward you give information and I also have a good laugh at some of the photos.
Anyway it has been a great help to me, so from a fellow Coloradoan, Cheers! Your email address will not be published. Notify me of followup comments via e-mail. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.

Historic drawing. Activities such as: likes, comments and shares on Facebook, retweeting, favoriting and responding on Twitter or giving thumbs up or thumbs down and commenting on YouTube are reactions to the communication that are also potentially visible to friends of a user. In other words, they have viral potential. Meanwhile, Facebook and Twitter define engagement broadly, also taking into account clicks in posts and links within them , which means that the numbers of engaged users are growing quickly.
While measuring the engagement, usually we give out the number of people and a particular relative index — engagement rate or percent of engaged users. In Sotrender we also dared to differentiate various kinds of engagement. We based them on frequency and visibility. It often happens that users are more engaged by funny or emotion-provoking messages which sometimes are hard to connect with the product in any way. One should not forget that the engagement not always has positive context.
Sometimes comments and responses may be critical, and a big number of shares may also have an ironic undertone. Why engagement is significant for the communication? In other words, thanks to more engaging communication one can save money that would have to be spent to reach that many users through advertisements. It can be also argued that the viral reach is more valuable. We tend to pay more attention and place more trust in what we find out through our friends or authorities, than from the brand itself.
Trying to understand the indexes of reach and engagement better, one should proceed to the analysis of particular messages. It is easy to analyze the formal aspect, which is the type of message photos, videos, links, posts with text only and its length, as well as character of content, which involves use of some particular words and signs. The more interesting, but also more complicated are the analyses concerning the effects of different types of posts: product, contest, emotional ones etc. In order to study them it is important to define own, important categories and attribute them to posts.
It can be done for example by tagging in Sotrender. Checking out which kinds of posts are having the best viral or organic results may be crucial for your strategy and tactics of communication. A possibility of defining precisely whom we reach and engage is one of the biggest advantages of marketing in social media. Two perspectives are taken into account when analyzing the recipients of communication.
It often happens that money is being spent on tries to reach sociodemographic groups which are not engaged in communication in any way.
The second perspective is searching for particular people that are influential, active, or in a well-established relationship with the brand.
