$99 Gets You the Best SEO Tools & Community on the Web!

There are only two SEO related tools that I’d take the time to promote.

Ontolo’s link building tools is one, and now I’m adding SEOmoz to that list.

Marketing Pilgrim is now an official affiliate of SEOmoz because, well quite honestly, Rand Fishkin is a righteous dude! Heck, you can’t help but like everyone at SEOmoz.

Oh, and their SEO tools are among the industry’s best of breed!

Features include:

Weekly Crawls & Rank Tracking

On-Page Recommendations

Competitive Analysis

Tools include:

Open Site Explorer

Keyword Difficulty

SEOmoz Toolbar

OK, I’m going to stop here because there’s just way too much you get for just $99 a month. Yeah, that’s not a typo—$99, as in ninety-nine SEOs at a conference, ninety-nine SEOs…. ;-)

Win Copies of Scott Stratten’s “UnMarketing: Stop Marketing. Start Engaging”

Scott Stratten is not your normal marketer.

Actually, he may even take offense at being called a “marketer.” Instead, he’s known as the “UnMarketer” and his book UnMarketing: Stop Marketing. Start Engaging, just hit bookstores today.

I had the pleasure of seeing Scott keynote PubCon South and I’ve been in constant awe of this enticing, engaging, and …Canadian unmarketer ever since. His book will be a bestseller, there’s no doubt about it, and the book’s description should give you an idea why:

For generations, marketing has been hypocritical. We’ve been taught to market to others in ways we hate being marketed to (cold-calling, flyers, ads, etc.). So why do we still keep trying the same stale marketing moves?
