Alli AI – Use AI to Optimise Your Website

Alli AI claims to be the first Search Engine Optimisation platform to make use of AI – but is it?

Yes, we think it probably is, although we are expecting someone to challenge that claim at any moment. In the meantime, however, lets assume that it is true. Upon what evidence do they make that claim?

Well, Alli AI does everything you need to optimise your website. It will find links, index those links and show you how to optimise your content and code, monitor and predict your traffic, watch your site for errors and so on. Alli is made by SEOs for SEOs. 

All well and good, but lets look at the system in a bit more detail. 

Alli AI gives you an AI-POWERED SEO STRATEGY

Google is constantly reviewing and investing hundreds of millions of dollars in RankBrain and the latest AI and Machine Learning technology in orer to grow their business. Now you can do the same – but for a lot less cash. As Google changes their algorithm, so you should adapt your approach. With Alli AI, your SEO strategy will be updated automatically ensuring that you are never left behind.
 

Alli AI MAKES SEO FUN AGAIN

Imagine logging on every day and knowing exactly what to do to increase your traffic as much as possible as fast as possible. That’s what this package can do for you – it uses market-leading continually update your SEO strategy and advise you as to exactly what you need to do to stay ahead of the game.

Find the low-hanging fruit, apply the 80/20 rule, however you want to describe it, whatever you want to call it, Alli finds the easiest links to build and recommends the necessary code and content changes for your website in order to boost your rankings as quickly as possible. The publishers are quick to point out that Alli AI isn’t a magic pill that can solve every SEO problem, but it is, nonetheless, pretty good. Search engine results are determined by an algorithm — basically a mathematical equation. If you adjust your website to correspond to certain variables in that equation, your rankings go up – its as simple as that.

Yes, we are on to BACKLINKS again.

Be in no doubt, just in case you were wondering, You Need Backlinks

Backlinks are, and always have been, the most important ranking factor in Google’s algorithm. We don’t expect that to change any time soon and neither do the publishers of this SEO tool. That’s why Alli is supplied with multiple AI link finding modules. Once this is installed you’re just hours away from having access to hundreds of great links to boost your site and its ranking.
 
This is, without doubt, a fresh approach to SEO and I welcome that because I’ve been doing it the old way for years so anything to make it easier and quicker would be welcome.

WooRank – SEO Tools & Reporting Platform

WooRank – SEO Tools & Reporting Platform

WooRank – SEO Tools & Reporting Platform

What is WooRank and what can it do for you?

WooRank describes itself as “a super fast, super easy-to-use SEO audit and digital marketing tool” – and it is. Trouble is, it’s one of many such tools and, as such, the decision as to which one to use is, for many marketers, a hard one to make.

Why? Well, in my opinion there are just too many of these tools out there and, at the end of the day, there is little to choose between them. Many of them offer the same, or very similar, facilities and very few have anything which makes them truly unique. Some SEO tools are free of charge, or minimal cost, whereas others, like WooRank, are not.

WooRank provides all the usual suspects when it comes to functionality – keyword research, rank tracking, SEO site audit etc etc and it does have a few nice touches which could set it apart from the crowd for some users. I particularly like their WooRank Index, see example below, which analyses which features of a website contribute most to its success and visibility – there’s a few surprises there such as the way it highlights just how relatively unimportant it is to have Social Media pages, (no I don’t mean that you shouldn’t have them, just that they are probably not as important as you might think they are when trying to rank your website in the search results). 

WooRank Review Index

WooRank isn’t cheap, it starts at £59 per month and has some fairly low limits at that price. They do offer 14 days free trial but they want your card details before you can have it so be sure to cancel before the 14 days are up or you will incur a charge.

What you should definitely do, however, is get their free Chrome extension – that will give you some great analysis of the websites you are researching at no charge – bargain.

WooRank is a competent package so far as it goes but others such as WooRank, Raven Tools and others deliver more for the same, or similar, money – see our SEO Resources Page.

rankingCoach – SEO Coaching Platform

rankingCoach – SEO Coaching Platform

Here’s a novel idea – rankingCoach – an automated online coaching system that leads you through the various tasks required to put you up at the top of the Google SERPs – Search Engine Results Pages.

Yes, they do write the name rankingCoach with a lower case “r” despite it being the first letter of the word and the fact that it is a proper noun. Here’s what the Oxford English has to say about that:

rankingCoach

They probably think that is novel and exciting but it really isn’t – eBay have been doing it for years.

Anyway, that’s the end of the grammar lesson, back to rankingCoach the product. What does it do?

Well, the idea is that you interact with the online auditing system and it suggests things that you can do in order to improve your site’s optimisation and get a better rank on Google and, presumably, other search engines too. From what I’ve seen the process could certainly improve the situation if the website was initially built by monkees and the content is fairly naff – you know, poor grammar, incorrect capitalisation etc. A lot of emphasis is given to the need to obtain citations from various directories and other online citation sources (Yelp etc), and I certainly don’t disagree with that, you should do it – or better still, get someone else to do it. If it is done properly the likes of MOZ and Majestic will notice it and it should improve your Citation Flow metric, which may help your Google PageRank, or then again, perhaps it won’t. No one knows for sure.

The optimisation process appears to take into account everything necessary to get a website on track to improve in the rankings. Keyword research, on page optimisation, structural or “technical” SEO and link building are all mentioned as being covered. The all-important aspect of optimisation that so many people ignore – competitive analysis – appears to have been incorporated into the product as well.

rankingcoach Ranking Coach

It is certainly a great idea and I’m sure that many small businesses could benefit from it – if they could be bothered to do it themselves rather than just pay an SEO specialist to do it for them. I’m sure that many will enjoy learning the processes involved and the joy of watching their website climb the rankings over time.

I’m not at all against the idea behind rankingCoach, I just think it unlikely that it will have much effect on a site’s overall search engine ranking unless it was in a real old mess to begin with – if the site to be optimised is actually set up properly with all the relevant meta tags etc set up, and if it has good content but still doesn’t rank very well, then the solution to the problem is likely to be much more complex. It is at times like this that we have to start straying from the simple fixes and look at how a website can be helped with more “Grey Hat” methods and I see no mention of those on the rankingCoach site.

Pricewise it all seems fairly reasonable with a single site plan starting at £24.95/month for a single project, i.e. 1 website, with additional projects priced at £19.95/month each. If you get your skates on and get the work done quickly you should only need to subscribe for a few months – the optimisation process will largely be a matter of “rinse and repeat” after that. These prices are excluding VAT.

There’s a free trial available for rankingCoach so maybe you should consider giving that a try first. Remember, it can take months to see results from some SEO work so don’t be too disappointed if you don’t get the top spot overnight.

Yoast – SEO for WordPress

Yoast – SEO for WordPress

There can be few WordPress developers out there who have not heard of Yoast. It is one of the most useful plugins for a WordPress site that I have ever found and, just to make it even more attractive, it is free of charge, at least at the entry level.

What does Yoast Do?

When you write copy for a website you want people to be able to find in on search engines when they search for whatever subject it is that you are writing about. Nowadays that means that the content has to be properly structured and optimised for the keywords or phrases that are relevant to it.

Yoast SEO For Everyone

Yoast is a tool to help authors and content writers to optimise their WordPress articles and blog posts around a “focus keyword or phrase” and it gives the finished content a rating ranging from “Needs Improvement” up to “Good”. It does this by comparing the article or post against a checklist of benchmarks including the total word count and how many times the focus keyword is mentioned in the text – this is known as the “keyword density” and Yoast looks for it to be between a minimum of 0.5% and 2.5%.

That’s just one of many checks that Yoast makes of your text. Have you used any H Tags? Have you written an effective Meta Title and Meta Description for your page or post? Search engines look at all these things and, to a greater or lesser extent, they all affect your ranking in the search engine results.

As you may have gathered by now, I’m a massive fan of Yoast. It doesn’t do anything that I couldn’t do for myself but that’s just the point – it makes sure that I do the things I should do when composing a piece of content for a client’s website or one of my own. It’s the nagging piano teacher looking over my shoulder and waiting to tell me when I hit a bum note – or miss one out altogether. I love it.

Yoast SEO Tools

Yoast is, as I have said, available as a free of charge WordPress plugin so you don’t have to think long and hard about it. Get it today and see how much more efficient and effective it makes you. There is a “Pro” version which gives you more superpowers like the ability to optimise a page for more than one focus keyword. That won’t matter to everyone but it’s great value for $79 per year.

Ladies and gentlemen, please join me in raising your glasses and drinking a toast – to Yoast!
