For many years now digital marketers, such as myself, have relied upon data from Google Analytics to help us understand the activity on our websites.

Paying on results sounds like a win-win scenario but as Steve Morgan reveals there are factors to consider that mean you could end up paying with more than just your money.

Alongside the big toys such as MajesticSEO, LinkRisk and Screaming Frog there are several lesser known but super useful web tools and extensions that will make your digital marketing life easier. Of course, they won’t do the job for you but they will certainly help you do it faster and in a more efficient way.
For many business owners, making a steady profit is the main focus when it comes to paid search campaigns, but it can always be improved upon. Be it with more profitable investments or cutting the costs of current ones to increase the margin.
Although gaining search engine rankings for search terms relevant to your industry is no longer the only metric for measuring the success of SEO, the value of strong positions in these searches cannot be ignored for the vast majority of websites. More importantly, sudden drops in these positions that lead to reflective decreases in traffic to your website can have serious negative effects on the bottom line.
