Wonder if you could help me with something?
Basically I am a blogger, the blog has been up since early 2010. It lost 2/3rds of the traffic after the last google update. I know why, a) not enough links - a few of my posts ranked well and I was lazy b) I did use a SEO 'expert' last year and he basically pointed spammy links at the blog which has now cost me.
I am working on that but my main question is I need to get back to basics here and pay more attention to rankings and keywords.
I am looking for a paid tool that will give me good keyword research and also show me where my pages are ranking (along with any changes.) Remember though I am not a SEO expert nor that techy, I produce content that is valuable and I want to make sure I am working hard on linkbuilding (with relevant sites) and SEO.
Many thanks in advance.
