I have been using some tools from last couple of years and recently I have got to know some more tools which can be used for successful, legitimate business online. Based on my experience I have handpicked important tools which we can use for internet market, traffic analysis etc. I’m not saying that you have to use these tools, but you can bookmark this page so whenever required you can start exploring it.
Before Google Analytics came along there weren’t really that many decent tracking tools available. We are started using this service from 2008 and have been using it ever since.
It’s completely free and one of the most powerful analytics tools on the market. It certainly isn’t 100% accurate (though no analytics tool is) and the only downside in my opinion is the delay in reporting. If you want to check the stats for today, you have to wait until tomorrow.
Get Clicky is another free analytics tool, but this one reports analytics in real-time. Instead of waiting around for Google to catch up, you can see what is happening on your website, right now. Live analytics can be a crucial tool, especially if you’re experiencing a large wave of traffic to a certain web page. When you can see what is happening in real-time, you can tweak specific pages to get the most from the visitors there. One more advantage with this tool providing asynchronous tanking code so tracking code won’t effect your site’s page loading performance. Only negative is now this website not accepting registration if more than 50k daily page views
Google Keyword tool
I like to use the Google Keywords tool which gives you an idea of how many people are searching for X (where X is your keyphrase) each month. If you market via PPC it gives you a decent estimate of the advertiser competition as well. To give you more accurate results, I recommend you select ‘All Countries and Territories’ on the left drop-down box and then when the results appear, choose ‘Exact match’ from the right hand side. Finally, click on the top of one of the column headings to see terms with the highest search volume first.
Wordtracker free Keywords
Wordtracker offer a paid keyword research tool, but their free tool is always enough for my needs. It gives far better phrases that I wouldn’t think of using or typing into the Google Keyword tool.
Google webmaster Tool
webmaster is free tool developed by google. Improve your search visibility in google search result. Using this tool you can discover the query traffic. Share your website information with google for search spider.
Do you ever find a cool article or resource online and wish you had an easy way to save it? Is your browser bookmarks bar overloaded and hard to organise? If so, then Delicious may be for you. That is, if you’re not one of the 10 million + people using it already. Owned by Yahoo, the site allows me to quickly save WebPages I find and organize them using tags
This wont apply to most people, so I’ll keep things short. iDisk is a service from Me.com (owned by Apple) which makes it very easy for me to backup my important files online. I run a Mac application called Automater which automatically copies files from a certain folder onto my iDisk at 1pm everyday. If you use Windows or just don’t want to use iDisk, then iDrive is a tool I would recommend. You can never have too many backups.
SearchStatus is a toolbar extension for Firefox and SeaMonkey that allows you to see how any and every website in the world is performing. Designed for the highly specialized needs of search engine marketers, this toolbar provides extensive search-related information about a site, all conveniently displayed in one discreet and compact toolbar.
easyComment makes it Easier to comment on blog. This plug-in will help you fill out blog comments form by entering a prefilled name, email and web homepage address on blogging platforms like WordPress, Movable Type and Dotclear among others.
httpWatch it is http and https monitoring tool without leaving the browser window. httpWatch basic is free tool, It integrate with IE and firefox easily. In Firefox you will get other good plug-in called Firebug and YSlow etc.
