SEO Is Indeed Tasking But It Could Be Fun!

As a regular reader of this blog, you know that I’m passionate about driving organic and targeted traffic using search engine optimization. Because of this, I’ve written variously on why as a blogger you must not ignore optimizing your blog for the search engines. I’ve also done a blog series on WordPress SEO sometime ago.

Unfortunately, to have optimum success with SEO you need to keep track of many things. This is where SEO is really intimidating for those not well-educated on the subject.

The good news, however, is that with SheerSEO even the average user can make sense of tracking and monitoring search rankings.

I had the opportunity of trying out SheerSEO and you can imagine my excitement using the tool. I was simply blown away by the simplicity and ease of use and that is what has given rise to this post.

A Few Quick Ways You Can Use SheerSEO

Permit me to quickly point out a few ways you can benefit from this SEO software.

1. Basic SEO Information All In One Place

The software helps you monitor most of the basic SEO data like keyword rankings, backlinks, PageRank, historical ranking data, keyword density, etc.

2. Social Media Activity Report

As you probably know social media is now an important factor in search engine optimization. With SheerSEO you can monitor your social media activities which is a good thing.

3. Automate Repetitive SEO Activities

Working to improve search engine rankings involves a few repetitive but tedious activities like directory submission and pitching of relevant bloggers for link-building requests. To ensure that your precious time is not wasted on these activities, SheerSEO automates these activities for you.

4. Enhance Your Professional Outlook

If you’re an SEO professional, SheerSEO will help you present evidence of how much your work has impacted on your clients’ rankings. The client will be able to get every detail of how the rankings have progressed since you began your work. This is good for your professional stand!

One feature of SheerSEO that truly impressed me when I tried out the software is the keyword tracking feature. I’m sure you know how important keywords are to SEO, right? Ok, SheerSEO makes it easy for you to analyze your use of a particular keyword/phrase in comparison with competing web pages.

I did a short video of how this works. Watch it:

My Only Grouse With SheerSEO

When I set out to test SheerSEO I wrongly believed I had a search engine optimization tool that would help me generate, analyze, and choose what keywords to target. But I was wrong. SheerSEO is an SEO tracking tool that helps you learn the results of what you’re already doing. This means you'll need to first implement your SEO strategy before you can use the software to know how you're faring.

I think this is an area the creators should consider in subsequent versions. Adding a feature for keyword research will truly make SheerSEO a powerful SEO tool. As it is now, where you have to DO  the necessary optimization work, like keyword research and implementation on your pages and then build backlinks, for SheerSEO to be effective is not good enough.

However, tracking and monitoring your work with simplicity is great. With your knowledge, you can save your precious time and resources and also make very important decisions that will improve your site rankings.

Your Opportunity To Try Out SheerSEO

Now, you don't have to take my word for it. You can test run SheerSEO for 60 days FREE! And in case you think this trial version will be of no use, let me tell you that it's the same fully functional software only that you'll be limited to a single domain tracking with 40 keywords, 5 guarded back-links, and 5 monthly directory submissions.

To me, that's fair enough and 60 days is enough time to decide if you need it or not. Get your 60-day free trial of this powerful now, you can appreciate me later! 🙂

Over to You: Ok, as usual, I’ll be glad to read and respond to your comments. Are you presently using any SEO tool? How about SheerSEO, ever tried it? Post your comments below.

  1. Hey Chadrack, great post and video. This sounds like a great SEO software, the standard license sounds pretty good value for money. I must check it out, thanks for the review.

      Frankly, I was blown away with when I tried it out. Right now I’m still exploring the different features. Another good thing that I’ll vouch for the software is the email alerts that you receive periodically. These let’s you know how your keywords are faring. Whenever there is a change, whether a drop or rise in ranking, you’ll know from this emails. It’s really worth trying out.

      Thanks for the comment.

  3. Chadrack,

    Is this SEO tracking tool similar to SEOmoz. I have been using it for a while now and find it pretty good. It also has heaps of toosl to help you with your campaign. Have you used it?

    Looking at our video this SheerSEO looks a lot more in depth.

    • @Ryan,

      Frankly, I have heard of SEOmoz for sometime now but have not really used it. However, even if you’re already using SEOmoz you can also try out the free version of SheerSEO and compare the two. Though the free version have less features, you may just be able to know if you really need it.

      Right now I’m still playing around with SheerSEO and I must say it’s just superb.

  4. Seems very promising SEO software, I’m going to try it for at least 60 days and then make my mind for it.

  5. Not software, but still useful tool

    • Hi Genry,

      Took a look and tried using it but must say it’s a little complicated. And frankly, I don’t think it’s really what I want to use. I’m better off with something more simple to understand. Maybe some other persons will try it out and let us know what they think.

    Search Engine Optimization (SEO)is always important. In my opinion a trial period is always imperative when deciding which SEO company to trust. You need one that will prove positive results.

  17. I am doing well at getting to the top of Google for keyword searches in the UK, however I want to rank highly overseas, namely in Africa and Asia. How can I check my ranking as if I was a user in, say, Ghana and secondly how can I improve my ranking there?

  18. I have an SEO job opportunity with a company that has 6 sites. One is the main company site that has links to the other 5 separate company product specific websites. This client would like a re-design on all sites to make the design cohesive across all properties.Thanks for this nice blog…

  19. SheerSeo has a great Rankings section that actually gives very useful information.
    For those who are searching for free seo tools, like am I, there is a web based seo tool that I just recently found: – provides very detailed website analyze and gives useful tips for improving.
