Hundreds of Tools For Marketers

hundreds of marketing tools

This isn’t new news by now, but I released a Google Doc with hundreds of tools that marketers can use. To make tools easier to find/use, I broke the doc down by task instead of the tools themselves.

How It’s Organized

The spreadsheet is broken into 14 categories:

  • SEO Analysis
  • Domain
  • Links
  • Keyword
  • Competitive Analysis
  • Tracking
  • Social Media
  • Spam/Hacking
  • Structured Markup
  • Developer
  • Data Visualization Tools
  • Data Sources
  • Infographic Submission Sites
  • Misc Efficiency Tools

The Doc

  • Sambarnes90

    @anniecushing:disqus Really If the guy like @randfish:disqus is going to say you thanks than it surely means that you did great great job to have it.
    Heads off-Really a great effort.
    When I first read your post I see nothing like here but seeing MR RAND at top,I think there shall surely be something worth reading.
    Click Google Doc and see a miracle collection of what every SEO professional needs.

    • http://www.annielytics.com/ Annie Cushing

      Thank you for the kind words. Rand’s share certainly did a lot to boost the visibility of the Google Doc. I was pleasantly surprised (no, shocked) to see his reference and comment. He’s awesome.

      • http://twitter.com/wahgra Zeshan Noor Wahgra

        Totally agree with you annie.I learnt a lot from MR @randfish:disqus

    Amazing….. Thanks a lot !!!!

    • http://www.annielytics.com/ Annie Cushing

      You’re very welcome! :)

  • Ovidiu Bestea

    Hi, Annie, besides providing such a comprehensive list, I’m glad you mentioned the fact that you kept the color-code of “red” for the tools that you can’t live without. Such a big list is a real help for everyone, but more helpful is the fact that you transmitted your experience with some of those tools by mentioning your preferred ones. I would like to add the FireFox add-on “SEO quake”.

    • http://www.annielytics.com/ Annie Cushing

      Thanks! I’ll try to remember to add that.

  • Bill Taylor

    Great stuff Annie, you just became my favorite SEO. I was looking for the Tab “Hacks of Google Algorithm” thats all I can see thats missing.

    • http://www.annielytics.com/ Annie Cushing

      LOL. I don’t think there are tools for that.

  • Lydia Brown

    Thank you Annie this is the most comprehensive list I have ever seen. So excited to dig into it

    • http://www.annielytics.com/ Annie Cushing

      You’re very welcome!

  • http://twitter.com/lilianwhite Lilian White

    Thanks, Annie. That’s a great job. I guess it took you years to gather, filter and select all the mentioned tools..

    • http://www.annielytics.com/ Annie Cushing

      It sure did!

  • http://twitter.com/New_Tech_World Latest Technology

    really amazing work man, Ping it http://sonyps4playstation.com/category/sony-ps4/

    That’s an intense list! Can you suggest a spreadsheet or something for organizing SEO tasks?
    Thanks again for an awesome spreadsheet :)

    • http://www.annielytics.com/ Annie Cushing

    Any Traffic Tool (to peep the traffic of competitor’s site? (apart from compete.com)

    • http://www.annielytics.com/ Annie Cushing

      Quantcast is a Compete alternative. I focus more on organic, so I use SEMRush or Searchmetrics to get an idea of organic traffic to a site.

  • http://www.eBizROI.com Rick Noel, eBiz ROI, Inc.

    Both of these Google docs are truly awesome and I see on both docs have hit the limit (apparently 50) on the number of users that get notified in the event of updates. Nicely done Annie :)

    • http://www.annielytics.com/ Annie Cushing

      Gah! I didn’t know there was a limit. Lame.

      • http://www.eBizROI.com Rick Noel, eBiz ROI, Inc.

        Trust me, the fact that you hit these limits is a sign of how wicked awesome these docs are. I will check back often and recopy as these are great resources and worth keeping tabs on. Have great weekend!

        • http://www.annielytics.com/ Annie Cushing

          Thanks! You too, Rick!

    Keep this up.

    • http://www.annielytics.com/ Annie Cushing

      Thanks! Glad you’re getting value from it. :)

    Thank you very much, Annie! I can only imagine how much time you invested in this.

    Best wishes,
    Aleks

    • http://www.annielytics.com/ Annie Cushing

      Yeah, it was quite a bit. But I love knowing that it’s helping so many marketers, so it was all worth it.

    • http://www.annielytics.com/ Annie Cushing

      It was my pleasure!

    • http://www.annielytics.com/ Annie Cushing

      I’ve commented on this three times, but it keeps disappearing.

      But it’s my pleasure to provide resources for marketers.

      • http://alekseyzuravlov.com/ Aleksey Zuravlov

        Annie, I saw previous 2 comments :)

        Now they are gone. Weird.

        Thanks!

        • http://www.annielytics.com/ Annie Cushing
          • http://www.annielytics.com/ Annie Cushing

            Haha. Of course Disqus added real html to my faux html. [shakes fist at Disqus again]

  • eChimp Digital

    Hi Annie, this is absolutely brilliant. We are giving you a virtual high five from Australia!

    • http://www.annielytics.com/ Annie Cushing

      Wahoo! An up high from Down Under!

  • http://www.computershowto.pro/ Attila Szabo

    Thank you. Great work. Could you shed some light on a percentage of impact using these has on your visitors ? And how often do you use each of these ? I’d be curios to know if a “full run” of these tools do not take more then 24 hours :)

    • http://www.annielytics.com/ Annie Cushing

      There are some I use a lot more than others. But impact is dependent on the marketers, not the tools those marketers use.

  • Jatin Chhabra

    Hi Annie, Things which I loved apart from the awesome list which you have shared, that you replied on all the answers. Well first of all thank you for sharing such a useful list as my experience in the field of digital marketing has shown that people don’t like to share too much. Would like ask a question. I have just started my digital marketing firm (Hospitality industry) and I’m a bit confused that whether I should go for courses provided by Moz or Qucksproud, as I’m still in training mode and the the projects which I have picked are financed by me.

    • http://www.annielytics.com/ Annie Cushing

      Hi Jatin,

      First, my commenters are my special guests. I try really hard to stay on top of replying. :)

      If you’re looking for courses, the best source I’d recommend is Distilled U. Very affordable and lots of great courses to go through at your own pace. http://www.distilled.net/u/ Moz is very good for tools, Q&A, and connecting with the community though.

      Good luck!

  • http://www.minayounan.com/ Mina Younan

    Thanks Annie so much for sharing this. A real link Bait indeed. I am sharing it with everybody :)

    • http://www.annielytics.com/ Annie Cushing

      Awesome! As hard as it is to believe, I didn’t share it as link bait. The first year it was out there it was just a Google Doc. I really did just share it to help marketers.

      • http://www.minayounan.com/ Mina Younan
