The main reason people pay to get SEO done is because it can be really, really damn expensive! I’m here to challenge that, I’ll show you how to be a super efficient SEO for just $57, including a ton of free tools to get you started.
Well, ScrapeBox’s black hat world discounted version, which you can get atÂ ScrapeBox.com/BHWÂ is pretty much the ultimate SEO tool, if you’re trying toÂ check indexed backlinks,Â find guest post oppurtunitiesÂ or evenÂ build a great niche related networkÂ learn how to use ScrapeBox and you’ll be able to simplify almost every offpage SEO task. I highly suggest looking atÂ Jacob King’s Ultimate guide to ScrapeBox.
The Tools –
Ok, so now you’ve gotten ScrapeBox, let’s go over the other tools we’ll be using. Which are all free! (yay)
TrelloÂ – This is an epic tool for all your project management needs, you create a card, add your list of objectives and you can easily tick off work done manage any clients needs or projects you may have.
Google DriveÂ – As a great alternative to Office, this means you can manage everything within a single cloud based web application, just create a Spreadsheet for link management (Which we’ll get onto later) or use their Word feature for any content creation based tasks, it’s a really simple tool with some epic features!
SEORCHÂ – An OnPage tool which scans and checks your entire site (or clients site) for any SEO issues. It’s actually one of the best crawlers I’ve seen out there and lives up to even the Moz tools.
The Scenario â€“
I thought Iâ€™d run you guys through a complete scenario from start to finish.
So, youâ€™ve just got a brand new client, letâ€™s open Trello and make a new board for all our clients, then add a card with our new clients information (Phone, Name, Address, Email etcâ€¦)
So, we now have all our clients managed including all their info, any meetings we have coming up and their invoices/payments ready.
Next weâ€™re going to want to have a list of things we need to do for our clients and then have a list within that, allowing us to easily tick off any tasks we have in the works:
Running an OnPage Report â€“
Normally people would use the likes of Moz or RavenTools for onpage reports, weâ€™ll be using SEORCH however which is totally free and a really quite epic tool.
First youâ€™re going to want to fire in your clients domain and if they have a specific keyword add in the keyword as well.
It even gives us a permalink and weâ€™ve got a downloadable PDF ready to print and let us tick off any OnPage changes that need doing, we can also edit the PDF in word and make it into a white labelled report by adding our logo etcâ€¦ to the document.
Quick and easy analysis for pretty much every onpage element you can imagine!
Google Drive â€“
Next weâ€™re going to want to create all our link management spreadsheets, these are fairly easy and make tiered link tasks and general link management really easy.
I also made this into an excel file for you to easily download below, just share the post and youâ€™ll get the file to download!
Link Building â€“
ScrapeBox makes link building ridiculously easyâ€¦
As I mentioned before Jacob Kingâ€™s ScrapeBox guide is probably your best bet for most of these kind of tasks but Matthew Barby also did an epic Link Prospecting guide using ScrapeBox & BuzzStream for some serious outreach potential!
GotchSEO also did a fantastic piece on creating web 2.0 blogs for great Tier 1 links, these are also great with the likes of tumblr as an awesome social signal.
Link Indexing â€“
ScrapeBox also has 2 built in features, one for checking indexed links against Google and Bing:
As well as another for getting all your backlinks indexed, which allows mass submission to tons of different indexing services â€“
