This is a REAL IN-DEPTH review of the SEO Elite version 3.2 software that is currently out. Every claim I make here is 100% accurate, and you can even verify the results yourself.
I started up my Central Florida Surf Report website in January 2005. I was receiving around 40 unique visitors a day from word-of-mouth traffic. Being out of the website design business for about 2 years, I didn't even know what Google PageRank was. I had no idea that backlinks with anchor text was what ran the search engines nowadays.
After realizing this by reading on the forums over at GeekVillage I decided I better get jumping on my link campaign. I started going around the internet in search engines and e-mailing potential link partners that had the same basic content as my website.
Many of the people liked my website design and content, thus giving me a high trade link success rate. In my niche 'surfing' or 'surf reports' most of the webmasters aren't out to get money or take your search engine rankings, so it was actually a little easier getting backlinks.
For about 4 months I was manually doing this by hand and only got up to around 250 backlinks in MSN and Yahoo !. Hardly any backlinks were showing in Google, but everyone knows that Google does show the correct amount of backlinks. Even right now it shows link: www.cflwaves.com as having ONE backlink.
In June, I finally decided that I was over the process of manually finding the link partners. I started using the program Arelis and was amazed at the ease of use finding new link partners. I DID NOT like the fact that the program did not show me any of the pages PageRank though. I only used Arelis for about 3 days, getting around 25 backlinks.
I started searching around in the internet for an alternative and stumbled into SEO Elite by Brad Callen. I downloaded the demo and was amazed at the results I was getting. I had picked up about 50 backlinks in only 2 days of use. Then I saw Brad introduced the new Project 8: Find and Submit Using Link Submission Forms.
After watching Brad's tutorial videos on this new project, I IMMEDIATELY went and purchased the product. After the first day I had already picked up 50 new backlinks using this new feature.
The keyphrase that I was targeting was 'Central Florida Surf Report'. If you check MSN, I am ranked # 1. If you check Yahoo! I am ranked # 1. If you check Google I am still ranked # 3 but I am pretty sure after the next Google update I will be # 1. The cool thing about it is that since I was targeting 'Central Florida Surf Report', it eventually rolls over to 'Florida Surf Report'. On MSN I am # 1 for 'Florida Surf Report'. On Yahoo! I am # 1 for 'Florida Surf Report'. On Google I am # 15, but this should also go up the next Google update. Rolling over again, it eventually turns into 'surf report', currently on MSN I am ranked # 13 for this keyphrase. It is very exciting to watch all my work actually pay off.
My traffic has tripled since January, and this month (August) I am expecting to receive from 11,000 – 12,000 unique visitors. Pretty good for a surf report website where all I do is update the surf report daily and forecast every few days right? This website is currently earning me over $ 600 a month in AdSense revenue, and that is increasing every month.
It is important to note that not all of your traffic comes from the search engines. When you are trading links with other websites, you also receive traffic from their websites, so the more backlinks you have, overall the more people you have!
These results are all due to the SEO Elite software by Brad Callen. Now here is my detailed project by project review of his software:
Project 1: Analyze backlinks using a specified search engine
This project allows you to analyze your competitors search engine backlinks using any of the major search engines. The program will show you what anchor text people are linking to them with, the IP address of the website, the PageRank of the website, the Alexa Rank of the website, the Page Title that the link is on, how many outbound links the page has, and how many total links the page has. This project also shows you in an easy list how many PR0-10's and their percentage that are linking to the site. It is kind of hard to explain so here is the format:
PR = 0 520.1%
PR = 1 810.5%
PR = 2 1313.3%
PR = 3 4543.3%
PR = 4 2420.4%
PR = 5 1210.2%
PR = 6 43.7%
PR = 7 00.0%
PR = 8 00.0%
PR = 9 00.0%
(Not my site's statistics.)
Project 2: Find and Email High Page Rank Link Partners
This is my favorite project of the whole program. It lets you find and email people that have atleast the minimum PageRank that you specify. You can find sites based on sites that link to your competitor, based on a search term, or from a links page – such as if your competitor has a long links page, and you want them all to link to you as well.
All you have to do is start the project, then load up one of your e-mail templates, select multiple e-mail addresses from the list and SEO Elite will send an e-mail to every single one of them. None of the receivers know that you have also sent that e-mail to another person. You can also customize your site templates to include the receiver's name and website URL, so that the emails do not look machine generated.
Project 3: Analyze allinanchor, allintitle or allintext.
This project allows you to enter a keyword and analyze the top 10 ranking for allinanchor, allintitle, or allintext.
Allinanchor shows you the top number of websites with that particular keyword in their anchor text. If you are ranked # 1 for allinanchor, you should soon be ranked # 1 for that certain keyword.
Allintitle shows you the top number of websites with that particular keyword in their tags.
Allintext shows you the top number of websites with that particular keyword in the body of their webpage.
SEO Elite allows you to compare the allinanchor, allintitle, and allintext with the actual results, frame by frame.
Project 4: Verify that link partners are still linking back.
I personally do not use this feature of SEO Elite, but some of you may find it very valuable.
What you do is give SEO Elite the location of your links page, SEO Elite will then crawl the links page getting the websites out of it. SEO Elite then visits all of those pages checking to see if your link is still on their website. If it isn't the program will tell you and you can send them an e-mail asking them what happened to your link.
Project 5: Find out where your site is ranked for a given keyword (s):
This project allows you to see where you are ranked for certain keywords on every search engine. SEO Elite saves the results and shows you a comparison from the past times that you have checked. This is great to show you how much SEO Elite has helped your search engine rankings.
Project 6: Find out how many webpages are indexed.
This project allows you to enter any domain name then the program will check each major search engine and return how many pages from that domain are indexed. Great time saver.
Project 7: Find well optimized websites.
This project shows you what the top 10 are doing to get their rankings. You enter a certain keyword and it returns the top 10 and then analyzes them based on certain factors:
# of Top 10's
I also do not use this project very much at all, I think I have only used it 3 times.
Project 8: Find and submit using link submission forms.
This is the greatest project of SEO Elite next to Find and Email High PageRank partners. What this project does is allow you to enter a certain keyword, select the number of websites that you want to exchange links with, and click submit. The program will find related websites to yours that have setup an automatic link exchange script.
All you have to do is enter your information into the SEO Elite program and each website that you select to trade links with, the program will automatically fill in the required fields for every website. All you have to do is click submit! Excellent feature, and a great time saver.
Overall I think that this is the greatest SEO program on the internet today. No other program has the amount of features that SEO Elite does. I think that this is a MUST-HAVE for any webmaster trying to market their website. This program is responsible for almost every visitor that I receive on my website. I give it a 10/10.
