It is with great regret that the SEO tool WebMeUp is no longer available as a service. Please check out my review for Positionly here, an alternative to WebMeUp.
When it comes to SEO tools, there’s never a shortage of choice, I mean there are literally dozens of websites out there offering SEO tools of all kinds, from backlink analysis, keyword research, competition analysis, Google penalty checker tool, heat maps and the list goes on. For the webmaster searching for an app or a service that will do more than just analyze backlinks, there is a cool tool you can get your hands on.
I want to draw your focus on one company that is offering some really useful SEO tools to not just internet marketers, but bloggers too. The site is called WebMeUp, and a few weeks ago WebMeUp was totally new to me and I thought to myself, oh here we go again… Another SEO tool to start playing around with that promises to do this and that, but interestingly enough I’ve come to like WebMeUp and I think you will too.
The SEO landscape is a fast changing one, and these days, just doing on-page SEO and building a few backlinks simply isn’t enough to ensure better rankings. You need to be at the forefront of your SEO if you really want to take your blog or your website to the next level. The tactics that worked in 2012 and 13 doesn’t work in 2014, and what works this year I’m sure won’t work the next following year, it’s ever changing it’s fair to say.
So what’s WebMeUp all about and what do they have to offer? Let’s take a look.
Getting Started with WebMeUp
OK so to get started you’ll need to signup for a free 15 day trial (aff), which is well worth it as you get access to the standard account with everything to try out! You can signup using Facebook or just your bulk standard name and email address. Once you’re in you’ll need to add a project, then add some keywords and select which respective search engines you want to analyze, to check the position of your selected keywords.
Once you’ve created your project, the app will get to work and after a few minutes you’ll be able to start analyzing every nook and cranny of your website’s SEO data.
Key Features Of WebMeUp SEO Tools
So let’s now dive deeper and take a look at some of the key tools and features that WebMeUp has to offer.
#1 SEO Factors
We all know that a website’s SEO factors can affect it’s rankings, and bloggers work tirelessly to improve their blog’s SEO factors overall. By clicking on the SEO Factors tab you can see at a glance ‘in miscellaneous’, your blog’s vital ranking factors such as Google PageRank, Alexa ranking, visibility, Compete rank and traffic.
Other SEO factors in the category include link popularity which is very useful, clicking on this tab reveals data about Google popularity, number of total backlinks, linking domains, do-follow backlinks again which is pretty useful, and linking C-blocks.
Other features in SEO factors include information about a domain, such as the age, IP address and load time, directory listings, indexing and social media values. As you can already tell even at this stage that WebMeUp is packed with more tools than one can physically handle, but it’s all good stuff, seriously.
#2 Keywords And Rankings
The next feature we come to is the keywords and rankings analysis tools. Whether you’re an internet marketer or blogger, keyword research is essential if you want to be able to create content and rank well for specific target keywords and phrases.
The Keywords and rankings tool will not only help you research and analyze keywords, but also study approximate traffic, visits, search engine rank (Google, Yahoo and Bing), visibility, KEI (Key Efficiency Index) and much more.
#3 Pages [Site Audit and Landing Pages]
The next feature in WebMeUp is the Pages section where you have access to tools to help you generate full reports about your site and landing pages known as site audits. Now as you know getting a website audited by a reputable SEO company can set you back your life’s savings in most cases, it isn’t cheap, but with WebMeUp you can generate reports and evaluate everything about your site and pages from indexing and crawlability, redirects, encoding and technical errors, URL’s, internal link structures, on page factors and much more, and at the fraction of the cost as well.
This is essentially a valuable SEO tool if you want to keep tabs on what your Competition is doing, and in internet marketing, keeping an eye on your competition is an important process for staying ahead of the game.
The features in competitors will allow you to add your competitors website and analyze everything about their ranking success, visibility, top backlink anchors, Google popularity, social activity, SEO factors and more. From a bloggers perspective this can be seen as a valuable tool for checking what’s working for other top blogs, and incorporating some of their strategies into your own to achieve success.
#5 Backlinks [Profile and Management]
Now one of the most crucial tools in WebMeUp, and one of my favourites, is the Backlinks Profile and Management Tools. Many bloggers that have been hit by a Google algorithm or manual penalty of some sort will absolutely love this tool. By clicking on the profile tab you can begin to assess your links in ‘summary’, or dive deeper and check by domain, Google PR, Alexa and so forth. But perhaps the prize tool in this feature has to be the Link Penalty Risk checker.
Clicking on the Link Penalty Risks tab will provide you with a wealth of information about the nature and health of the backlinks pointing to your site, categorized by Dangerous, Suspicious, Neutral and Trusted.
Naturally you want to build more trusted links to your blog, so by drilling down and analyzing each risk category carefully, you can for example isolate all the dangerous links, export them in CSV for download and begin working on requesting for the removal of those links. It’s also useful if you want to generate links disavow lists to submit to Google.
The backlinks management tools allows you to add URL’s that could become potential backlinks for your blog or website, very cool.
In addition, the other features in WebMeUp SEO app include the ability to connect your Google Analytics account and pull in data into your project, social media tools for analyzing social signals, traffic from social sites and much more. The other feature I want to highlight before we end is the events tab, which allows you to create events and track their influence on your SEO results, maybe something that’s happening in the SEO world like another extravagant Google Penguin update.
Well how can I conclude WebMeUp? This is truly an awesome app with some great SEO tools and features, and I’ve only covered the tip of what you can do with these tools.
With the current price plans being so affordable, there is no reason why you shouldn’t consider using WebMeUp for your blog SEO. I mean like I said, you can literally spend your entire kids inheritance paying companies to audit your blog or website and analyse your pages, or generate reports about your backlinks profile, or study what your competitors are doing amongst other things, but why pay hundreds or thousands of dollars when for a fraction of the price, you can have all the pro tools at your fingertips to do all of those things yourself.
After test driving the 15 day trial myself, I ended up taking out a starter plan at $20 per month (aff), what a steal, highly recommended.
I hope to be able to use some of the data in my WebMeUp profile in the future when I’m creating SEO case studies, so keep an eye out. Now go and check out WebMeUp (aff).
