Domain Registration and Hosting
Dreamhost This is the registrar I use most. It’s easy to use and includes WHOIS Privacy with the price of domain registration.
Blue Host Many A-List Bloggers swear by this host and that is why it’s included in this list. However, I don’t like to use them because they charge you an extra 10 bucks for WHOIS Privacy, making each domain registration cost about $20, twice as much as Dreamhost.
Host Gator A huge name in hosting in website hosting. I don’t personally use them much but they come highly recommended.
SEO Hosting A division of Host Gator but a completely separate and different service. If you are building multiple sites and trying to rank them for similar keywords then SEOHosting.com is what you need. They offer 5 C-Class IP Packages for $35 per month and allow you to change the IP address for each one of your domains so they don’t appear related (owned by the same person) to the search engines.
Here’s a bonus tip about SEO Hosting: if you want to host more than five sites with them then open a completely new account so the DNS nameservers are different too. That way, not only will each of your sites have different IP addresses but they will also be physically hosted on different servers (5 domains per server, different IP addresses for each individual domain).
Link Building Resources
Unique Article Wizard 67/month – The king of Article Marketing applications, this tool has been around for over half a decade and continues to be effective for many Internet Marketers.
Link Chicks This is an a la carte service where you can buy many different types of links.
Drip Feed Blasts 99/month – Up to 30,000 backlinks created per month.
Dripable 57 to 99/month – Up to 2000 forum profile and blog comment links per day.
Linx Boss Relatively higher priced but completely Done-for-You link building service.
Link Pushing These guys create multiple-tiered link wheels, all linking to one another and to your site, creating a jumbled, inter-linked mess (also known as a link pyramid but focused on avoiding any footprint)
SENuke XCr The Godfather of all-in-one SEO solutions, this software does too many things to mention here. The most impressive points about SENuke are it’s constantly updated, uses crowd sources for an ever-growing source of links and rarely crashes. A true work horse.
PR Web Great service to get your press releases syndicated to hundreds of authority news websites.
Scrapebox 97 – You know all those spam comments that you get in your WordPress Panel that make no sense? That’s Scapebox.
Then why would I include this Black Hat tool on this Resource Page? Because it can be extremely powerful and useful. For one, it will tell give you a list of sites that allow comments in your niche that you can go and manually comment on.
Linkvana One of the only Blog Networks that seems to have survived the recent Google updates and has consistently innovated and updated its service. Now includes social network linking.
Backlink Energizer A WordPress plugin that automatically and regularly builds links to your backlinks so they get indexed by the search engines.
24-7 Backlinks This is included because, as of now, they give away 1000 free backlinks just for opting in. I guess they hope that you later come back to buy but I don’t know anyone who has.
Linklicious 3 Available Plans: Free | 14.50/month | 54.50/month – Pings and gets your links indexed by Google
Keyword Research and Competitive Analysis
Market Samurai Modules include SEO Competition, Rank Tracker, Monetization, Keyword Research. The one-time payment now limits you to tracking 50 keywords once a week. If you need to track more there will be an additional monthly fee. The best part of this software is teh SEO Competition Module, in my opinion.
SE Cockpit This web application comes up with an amazing list of related keyword ideas from a single seed keyword and then will tell you the level of competition and if the exact match domain is available. This can be convenient if you’re looking to build many sites. Instead of going back and forth from the Google External Keyword Tool to your favorite registrar to see if a domain is available, this software tells you everything in one place.
Ahrefs.com Gives you amazing amount of data regarding the links pointing to any particular page on the Internet. Also gives you an accurate page and domain authority, much more accurate than the outdated Page Rank value. I only wish the ratings were from 0 to 100 like Open Site Explorer because it would be a lot easier to compare the strength of one website to another.
SEO Moz Pro A membership to SEO Moz Pro gives you access to all Open Site Explorer data and a bunch of other SEO data. They’re spider falls short because it uncovers a fraction of the backlinks that Ahrefs does. Plus, the tools inside SEO Moz Pro usually take a week to analyze your website. Used to be the best solution in its class but I believe has fallen behind.
SEO Multimedia Content Creation
Instant Article Wizard 7 for the first 7 days then 77/year – A semi-automated article creation tool. This is a great research tool that will pull relevant content for any keyword you enter and then you can easily copy and paste small tidbits of information about your topic into an article inside the software. The facts that this tool uncovers about your topic is impressive and allows you to create an article in under 10 minutes even if you know nothing about the topic. Instant Article Wizard will also spin your article, making it completely unique.
Article Builder 297/year – Created by Jonathan Leger, an SEO to keep your eye on. If you’re going to buy SENuke XCr then you should consider this as an add-on feature. This tool will create decent articles for you in a bunch of different categories and then will give you as many unique versions of that article as you want.
Much better than the Best Spinner and just below Spin Rewriter in terms of quality of output. Article Builder creates articles that are readable and do not appear to be written by a piece of software. (On a personal note, my wife who does our social bookmarking, has bookmarked Article Builder posts thinking that I wrote them). Also has the ability to auto-post unique content to your Self Hosted WordPress blogs.
The Leading Articles (formerly Ultra Spinnable Articles) monthly subscription plans to choose from – Human written articles and article rewrites. Download the article you want and as many versions of the article as you need. This is a database of content for you to use at your convenience and the number of downloads per article is limited, avoiding duplicate content being published all over the Internet.
The Best Spinner 7 for the first 7 days then 77/year – Software that automatically replaces words in your content with synonyms created hundreds of different versions with the push of a button.
Spin Rewriter Amazing, sophisticated spinning software that seems to understand the meaning of the words in your article because the synonyms it uses make sense in the surrounding context. This is the new kid on the block but very impressive.
Animoto Choose a template, upload your photos and/or videos, choose your background music and creates a great looking video in a few minutes.
Splasheo Amazing intros, outros and bottom-of-screen graphics. You simply provide your logo and any applicable copy and they create you a custom mp4 usually in about 24 hours. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Social ADR Free or 5 Different Paid Plans – The free account allows you to earn credits by bookmarking other people’s content. You post a description of your post or page and other people share it on their social accounts. Every description that gets published will be spun and unique… the closest thing to natural link building.
