Planning your SEO Campaign

Consistency is very important both for onpage and offpage SEO. Consistency means publishing content on your site at the same rate each week, it means bookmarking your links at the rate, it means publishing content about your site on other websites at the same rate.

This is all just a process. When you have 2 or more sites, or if you own an SEO company where you're promoting many sites all at once, organising your SEO campaigns can get incredibly hard to manage.

So how do you do it? I thought about using Google Calendar to list all the tactics per website - but I feel that this will just get very cumbersome. Excel spreadsheets? I'd rather not.

Do you know of any software out there that can help us organise SEO campaigns? / What are you currently using?

      But what do you care right? You just want to drop your one liners on and on and on. Thats why you post here and then here stating MODS keep deleting your posts, when in fact they're cleaning your one liners...

        I own sites like the ones you're describing on a daily basis.

        Google does not care whether you update your content 10 times one week, 1 the next.

          Mike, do us all a favor: enlighten us OH MASTER! :rolleyes:

          I am sick and tired of your **** one liners always saying the same: you're the man. You don't post to share knowledge, to help users or to be friendly: you post to fill your ego... and dude, this is not a fashion show.

            Why would I give my insight in **** I've spent my time and money testing only to help competition? Yeah, that's brilliant :rolleyes:. I'll typically give direct answers, and not how I came to such an answer. That's your job.

            I don't post to fill my ego, I post to fix a lot of misconceptions. If you get butthurt over that, then oh well. That's your issue, not mine.

            Serious lols @ me not posting knowledge, though. Me posting knowledge is one of the issues you took up with in this thread.

              Wrong in every sense.

              WF is a forum, a community. Then you have a bunch of people sharing knowledge for FREE - even when people spent time and money to achieve those indications of what works.

              If you just come shooting your **** one liners to make sales, better open a WSO, otherwise, more people will realize what you do is NOT sharing knowledge - is just a bunch of **** to fill your post count and expose your siglinks so YOU can make sales.

              And I don't have a problem with you personally - my problem is your lack of respect for people that didn't ask YOU to post your one liners with no substance at all.

              Wanna post? Feel free to it. This is a public forum. But at least give substance to what you post, otherwise it's just a sales pitch.

              And for that, you have WSO's.

                Wrong again.

                You're the one who needs to stop posting one liners with NO substance at all to back up your claims. Otherwise, you're just pitching your siglink.

                  Nah, you're just acting like a little child. You're taking issue up with me because you don't like how I post. If you don't like it, again, too bad. Keep it moving.

                  Again, if I was posting my "one liners just to make sales" don't you think I'd post the URL to my WSO that I've larger profit margins on? :confused:

                    Second time you take this personally with me. Feel free to do it again. Be my guest.

                    What I don't like is people posting short one liners with NO explanations of what and why they post it.

                    And thats exactly what YOU do.

                    And I ain't going nowhere. You're the one saying WF MODS have been deleting your posts and you even go messing with them.

                    So it looks perfectly clear to me you're the one on the wrong side of the road.

                      Yep, they've been doing it for about a month or so, at least. The thread you just linked to is a post that shouldn't have been deleted. I answered the OP's question. Groupon has made prospecting that much easier.

                      If you weren't acting like a child having a fit when they don't get their way, I wouldn't tell you that you're acting like a child.

                      Let's make this simple:

                      You are having a fit because you're not getting what you want - me to post in a way that's "acceptable" for you.

                      A child has a fit when they don't get what they want.

                      So, again, you're having a fit because you're not getting what you want. Same thing a child does.

                      If you don't like it, keep it moving.

                        This is a community forum - not your house.

                        In your house you write the rules. Here you FOLLOW them. And one of the most basic rules in here is to write something meaningful in your posts - otherwise it's trash and gets deleted. And it's quite obvious YOU are the one having issues with your posts getting deleted - not me.

                        Me? I just want to read your comments on WHY you made the remarks on the top of this thread.

                        If you have them, shoot them on. If you don't don't, or you if you prefer to keep them SECRET (cause you spent money to achieve that knowledge) then I have one simple question for you:

                        Why you post, if you don't plan on give substance?

                          It's not my problem you don't believe my responses to have "substance". I don't believe in outing my secrets, nor spoon feeding. You're asking for both.

                          You don't see the irony in you pointing out the fact that this is a community forum, not my forum, but you're trying to dictate the way I post? :confused:

    Mike is right, that consistency thing isn't all that important as you'd think it is. I have sites that I havent updated or built backlinks to in over a year and they are still earning money and ranked at the top of results.

    But to answer your question... i have the gigantic excel spreadsheet. I track money spent, backlinks built, schedules, etc, for every website i own.

      I tried this but it just got out of control. The main thing that I wasn't managing effectively was looking back retrospectively at tasks that I completed. Columns needed to be allocated per day... it just got out of hand.

  • To the OP! If you are looking for a software that can create you complete SEO plan, then you can consider the IBP (though it is not some scheduling software creates a good SEO plan to follow). However, it is quite expensive if you are not making enough money. If you ask me, I use simple day planner to schedule all my weekly tasks.

      Good point. In any market that we go after, we just need to do a little better than the website already ranked #1. Give it enough time and surely we'll be ranking ahead of them.

      Hi Lawrence,
      Thanks for your suggestion. I looked at IBP and WebCEO, and as you said, they are quite expensive. I'm looking at project management tools such as Basecamp and ActiveCollab - but they're not really impressing me all that much. They work more on delivering a project, such as delivering a website to a client, rather than working on a continuous project, such as the nature and process of SEO.

      I really do wonder how massive SEO firms manage their 100's of clients?

        Hey, we have created our own Project Management Script called Work Space very powerful and flexible. Every individual employee have their own login to Work Space. There are also admin for special powers. We have over 35 clients and manage them easily through Work Space.

        How our custom Work Space works?

        We put clients database and assign each client to different employees. Employees can record their daily work and tasks (Tasks button is there). We can also send emails to employees and clients directly from Work Space, which can be CC to Project Managers or CEO. Moreover, custom tasks can be assigned. At the end of week or month, we can show client reports via Work Space loging for client. That is an overview how we manage and that approx. cost us about $3500 on the development. Now we have in house technical person to look after.

        P.S: Forgot to mention it also provides complete reporting and analysis too and so much more if I type all the features, this will take quite lot of time...

      Hi Maximum117,

      Thanks for your advice. I was hoping to find out an effective way of managing many SEO campaigns at the same time?

      So for example, just say I have 10 SEO campaigns running - is the best way to manage this through a spreadsheet, or is there something better to use?

      Just trying to think of ways to remain organised.

    i donno how many of you guys actually work on your site (may b outsourcing),,,but i do,,and i can tell content and backlinks frequency does matter. If you are in competitive niche, loosening up on any of these two will cost you your rankings.you might not see rankings disappearing overnight but you will see massive changes in a 30-45 days,,,and you ll have work real hard again to get back your rankings.

      Dear Alina Albert, I think you misunderstood the thread, thread starter was not asking for a software to do SEO he was actually asking for a software with whom he can manage his SEO tasks and campaigns.

      Dear thread starter, I am not a freelance SEO. I have worked in different companies as an internet marketer. In one company I was provided with the opportunity to manage my work on software. Actually it was the package of 4 softwares knows as SEO Power Suit. This software is pretty useful to handle multiple SEO projects at one time. You can easily handle link exchange campaign check rankings of your site and competitors, backlinks of yours and your competitors with this package. But its pretty expensive btw...

The rest of the tools I really couldn't justify in paying, as I can do most of the other stuff manually, without taking too much of my time.

        But still, none of those 4 has task management.

        My problem is this: I am looking after more than 10 websites(and soon will be many more). I'm often forgetting what needs to be done on each on the sites. When was the last time Site X got bookmarked, when was the last time Site Y had article marketing done for it, etc.

        What I'm after is a way in listing all the tasks that are needed across all sites, and then view that information in a calendar format where I can clearly see what I need to do for the day. I'm not sure if this exists for us SEO'ers?

        Active Collab, Basecamp, and other project management software seems to be the closest things to this.

        They say hard work never killed anyone, but why take the chance.

    hey temporary 10 sites in one time. C'mon dude you should not look for software you actually need to think in what direction you are going? You should work on minimum 5 sites at a time or else hire someone from odesk or something like that. Look dude I might sound weird but try to realize that SEO or internet marketing is not something like data entry in which you all you need to do is submissions. Internet Marketing is a very versatile style which keeps changing. To be successful you need to do research and update your self regularly which surely needs time but if you are working on 10 sites how can your produce time for research ?

    I had the exact same problem as the OP and researched for 7 months before I realized that either the tools that did what i wanted were expensive or they did not do what i wanted.

    I ended up developing my own software for it. It is an expensive piece as I had to spend a fortune developing it.

    Temporary -- If you are interested, I can set you up with an alpha copy for you to try out. But remember this is still in alpha and hence can have bugs and the final design is not done yet.
