  • 20 SEO Tools You Might Not Have Heard Of, But Should Be Using

    I should be presenting at BrightonSEO today on a 20/20 slot (20 slides, 20 seconds each) talking about 20 SEO tools.

    Unfortunately I can’t be there. Sadly my dad, Jim Gibbons, passed away on Wednesday morning having battled cancer so bravely for the last year, but unfortunately his health deteriorated very quickly earlier this week. Obviously it puts things in perspective, as these things always do, but I know my dad would have loved me to do this. He was so proud of my career and paid such a great interest in everything I do, especially speaking at events like this – mainly because this isn’t something I’m naturally comfortable at doing and I’d rather not be center of attention (I’m just like him in so many ways), but I am ambitious and want to push myself and company forward by forcing myself into creating and taking these opportunities.

    So while I can’t be there today, I still wanted to share the slides with everyone who’s going along to the event.

    I love you dad, this one’s for you!

      Kevin, so sorry about your dad…
      Really nice tips summary… I would like also to add a new tool called Colibri, I found it very useful, it track my website’s position by keywords and find and monitor my competition, also monitor Twitter and Facebook mentions and Back Links or even the Page Rank, really nice dashboard where You can manage all competitor’s sites by each keyword-a great tool I think.
