The golden days of submission software are long behind us.
Back in the day, back when Pluto was still a planet and gasoline was fairly cheap, search engines required new sites to be submitted to them. Rapid automated submission of sites and pages within sites could help sites rank more effectively.
That’s no longer the case. Google, Yahoo, Microsoft and other top search engines will find your site on their own through inbound links. Submitting is at best unnecessary, and, in the view of some, a negative.
Directories are a different story. There are still many web directories that will give your site a link for free, and in some cases getting such a link will either drive traffic on its own or provide a modest boost in the search engines. Submission software cannot wholly automate this task, but the better submission modules can identify worthwhile directories and help expedite the task.
Pay Per Click Management Software
Pay per click campaigns can get expensive quickly.
That’s fine if the PPC search campaigns are generating a positive return on investment. It can be a business killing problem if not.
One essential for successful pay per click marketing is tracking and management of the pay per click campaigns. Once the keywords have been identified and the campaign launched, the results need to be tracked so profitable terms can be expanded upon and unprofitable terms dropped.
This software helps with that tracking and management process. Don’t run a campaign without it.

• Age of all websites
• Whether the website is in the Yahoo Directory
• Whether the website is in DMOZ.org
• Whether the website is in Wikipedia

Search engines have rules that they want webmasters and SEOs to follow. These rules don’t have the force of law, and it’s not illegal to ignore them, but search engines can and will ban your site from their results if they catch you violating them.
So called “Black Hat” SEOs are the folks who dare to defy the search engines, and violate or skirt the rules. Some consider it unethical; others consider it a friendly contest between the SEO and the algorithm twisters at the search engines.
We don’t do Black Hat SEO here at SEOSoftware.net, and we don’t recommend that you do either. Aside from the ethical questions, it’s no game for amateurs. Make a mistake, and your sites can be banned from the search engine results, for good. Do that to an SEO client who did not know that you were pushing the rules, and the results could be disastrous.
All the same, we list here some of the popular programs used by Black Hat SEOs. Use them at your peril.
SoloSEO is an online SEO (search engine optimization) project management utility created by Aaron R. Stewart and Michael D. Jensen. The project aims to help both beginner and professional users to manage their SEO campaigns by offering two services.
SoloSEO certainly sounds like a great help, but what does this tool have to offer? For $29 a month, the possibilities are quite broad. You can do anything from managing your keywords all in one place to comparing your sites’ stats up against the competition’s. The utility handles loads of things such as suggesting keywords, tracking backlinks, creating optimized pages, managing link building, analyzing the strength and quality of sites, generating comprehensive reports, monitoring active and inactive links, and so much more. The list literally goes on and on with this great SEO tool.
Not only does this utility come with a handful of great features, there is also a Tutorial feature included for SEO newbies. This feature includes things such as explanations and links for standard SEO tasks, Learning Areas, resources to help further instruct on the topic of SEO, etc. SoloSEO also allows management of up to 5 websites for $29, and adding on further websites costs $4 more a month. The creators even offer a free trial so that you can check the tool out risk-free. You’ll also find that other SEO tools focus only tend to focus on a few things while SoloSEO virtually covers the whole spectrum.
As with everything that has pros, there are also cons. The main gripe seems to be the customer service. Don’t expect to call an 800 number and receive instant assistance with an issue you may have with SoloSEO because the only form of support that Stewart and Jensen offer is through the website’s tutorial and FAQ pages as well as email.
Review & Rating
Overall, SoloSEO is great for anybody wanting to get down and dirty with SEO and maximize their profits and/or traffic from their websites. The utility offers a vast range of features that are significantly helpful to websites that are in dire need of optimization. Best of all, it’s affordable!
