    SEO software

    Is there any decent product out there if so what? or are ppl just better off doing it themselves?

    You are always better off doing it your self. Software cannot keep up with the constant changes the search engines are making. Plus the search engines are aware of their standard "tricks" and I'm sure they don't work anymore. Learning SEO isn't difficult. You just need to be able to figure out what is crappy information and what is good information.

    Software can be good for reporting but there are free tools that can do that for you as well.

    I would suggest go for the software and get the tips out of them and if you think its good do it yourself and if you think it isnt you would think a genuine one avoid it. I used WebCEO for some tips.

    i only use them every once in a while, most these days have a neat rankings tool built in so that if you have it all set up, with the push of a button you can retrieve your current rankings for multiple sites all at once, and across multiple search engines.

    Do you have an example of one of those?

    It is always better to do it manually but software like Internet Business Promoter can speed things up. It gives you a list of search engines and directories to submit to and fills out submissions forms on its own.

    there are a bunch of em around ... web ceo, SEO toolkit, SEO elite, SEO Studio, just to name a few... they all have that tool in them.
    You can download a trial (unrestricted) version of Web CEO for free, I pretty much only use it to do a rankings check though.

    The software is all nearly useless. There are only a handful of SE's worth a damn that even offer free submissions. And all the 'optimization' tricks software packages offer just don't help much at all anymore.

    Besides, relying on software will not allow you to learn anything. I am so glad I was skeptical and cheap and did it all on my own, because now I feel like I learned so much. With software, it's like somebody holding your hand. But it doesn't even work, so save the cash and do it yourself.

    I've never really used any of the software. Of course, that doesn't mean I'm not missing the boat...

    Oh and the Hitlens stats program (extra cost) that coordinates with Web Ceo is great, too. The only weakness in the program (in my opinion) is the keywords functionality.
