    Hi Guys,

    I have mostly outsourced our SEO efforts – with great results. Now I wish to start tracking it to gain some better understanding on where we stand with some of the more competitive keywords.

    I was hoping I can get some word of advice on which software (desktop or saas) is recommended for managing my SEO? what I need is probably a way to test keywords, analyse our incoming links, analyse competition for specific keywords etc.

    I have seen a couple of nice SAAS solutions that do this (and much more) but am now looking for an SEO specific tool.

    Google is probably the last place to look for such tools, lol, you guys probably managed to confuse the hell out of these keywords.

    Thanks!

    I favour the tools from SEOMoz.org and SEO Powersuite in combination with some Firefox add-ons like SEOBook’s SEOToolbar, SEO for Firefox and Mozbar.

    The trouble with some tools is that they ‘measure’ competition for a search by the numbers of backlinks and/or PR of the ranking pages which is unreliable for several reasons.

    I just have the targeted keywords for sites that I monitor in an excel file or text file and check all of my rankings manually. I know many people do it, but just so you know, it is against Google terms of service to use automated software to check your search rankings. I do it manually because I like to keep an eye on what the competition are doing at the same time.

    SEO Elite used to work for checking backlinks (not so much anymore).

    Market Samurai for general keyword competition analysis then fine-tune with with a manual personal assessment.
