SEO PowerSuite Professional
(Reviewed on an
Intel Core i7-3960X Processor)
SEO PowerSuite Professional (developed by Link Assistant) is powerful
toolkit to help users get their websites on the map without spending
thousands of dollars. Interestingly enough, SEO PowerSuite is used by
some of the world's biggest companies that include giants such as
Microsoft, MasterCard and Disney.
Although a free version of some of these tools are available, they are
not as in-depth as the Professional or Enterprise version
which is needed to maximise the Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) of your
website. It's definitely a must have tool kit for all webmasters and web
that said, these tools cannot be used just once and ignored and in order
to maximise their potential for your website, some time is required to
setup the programs for your websites. The goal of SEO PowerSuite
Professional is to get your website in the top of the results of Google
which in turn may increase the number of visitors to your site.
This toolkit includes four powerful programs that include;
four tools included in the suite target a particular aspect of website
management. Rank Tracker for example checks your websites ranking and is
also a keyword research tool. WebSite Auditor is a content optimization
tool which checks your site for broken links or incorrect code.
SpyGlass is a backlink analyser and competition research tool that
allows you to investigate your competitors, compare your website to them
and of course improve your website standing. The final tool is
LinkAssistant which is a link management tool and assists your site in
obtaining strong links to increase your presence on the net.
Installation of SEO PowerSuite Professional was a breeze and once you
purchase the trial, Professional or Enterprise, you simple follow the
installation wizard which installs this set of tools to your PC. It
should also be noted that a Mac and Linux version is also available,
however this review will focus on the PC version but all three O/S platforms
offer the same powerful features.
installed, we were treated to a relatively user-friendly interface.
Fortunately there is plenty of documentation to support the user in
setting up the program for their websites and begin the much needed SEO.
The PowerSuite also checks for updates when you load the program so you
can ensure that you have the latest version or updates each time you run
be warned that some of the programs in this toolkit such as Rank Tracker
and WebSite Auditor that depending on your websites size can take awhile
to do the initial scans which unfortunately is dependent on your net
connection. Another issue is that some search engines use captcha
technologies which requires the user to type in a keyword or string of
letters. You can skip this step in these tools or purchase an additional
captcha license for "x" amount of captcha use. It's a shame that this
was not included in this suite.
Rank Tracker is the perfect place for users to find out where their
website and keyword search stands in the greater search community. It
also allows you to check every URL in your website and once setup, you
can then monitor your links. The program even recommends keywords for
your website in order to bolster your popularity which could result in
additional visits, money or purchases for sites that sell goods and
terms of setting up your website, it would have been nice if Rank
Tracker had some sort of wizard or demonstration before you enter your
URL and your keywords. To run this program on Impulse Gamer, it took
around 12 hours on an ADSL2 internet connection. A pause button or the
ability to resume your scan would have been a nifty feature of Rank
Website Auditor is another must have tool that performs a detailed audit
on your website and recommends areas of optimisation. The tool also
offers recommendations of improving your internet standing and how to
optimise it for search engines. Like Page Ranker, a pause button in
scanning your website would have been a highly valued feature as the
scan for Impulse Gamer took around 40 hours to successfully complete.
That's a lot of time...
The next tool, SEO SpyGlass is great for finding out why your website
may not be performing as well as your competitors. This tool basically
compares your website to your competitors, especially the successful
ones in order to duplicate. In essence, it gives you a detailed look
into their strategies which can then be mimicked by you. I also like how
it reports on where your competitors back links are located.
Links are what makes website popular and without links from other
websites, unless your highly specialised, most search engines will give you a very low
standing. This tool will assist users in promoting
their links and establishing strong partnerships. It's a great feature
for websites who are just starting.
the suite also comes with BuzzBundle (Trial) which allows you to check social
media such as Facebook, Blogs and Twitter for keywords in order to see
what is making the buzz in these networks. Once again, this program can
help tailor your social media presence. It should be noted that
BuzzleBundle is a limited version and the full version will be reviewed
by Impulse Gamer soon which comes with a cost of $199USD (March 2013).
Depending on the size of your website, SEO PowerSuite is the ideal tool
to give you the edge on your competitors and is a must have tool if you
want your website on the global map. For those users still deciding if
this toolkit will improve their website standing, the trial version is
perfect to give you a taste of the functionality.
professional version on the other hand is ideal for those bloggers or
