Are you obsessed with some SEO tool set or software program?
Think about “software tools” more as having a very specific purpose (and there are some excellent tools to know about for sure.)
But also realize, that the single most important key to understanding SEO in ways that will quickly profit your business, is to focus on skill-building by reason of practice. It’s important to gain and possess your SEO skills first, before fiddling with tools.
Tools are nice, but there is no tool that can match the human brain for creating and implementing a brilliant and profitable high traffic, high conversion strategy.
Everyone tends to love cool tools, but I encourage you to build your SEO comfort level manually and you will gain the comfort level much faster along with a sense of understanding exactly how to optimize, without always being prompted by a tool.
