Looking for a debate over the best SEO tools? You’ve come to the right place.
Each of our speakers has a different perspective on the SEO tools they use and love. The best tool for a job is not the same when you work for a local company focused on promoting their own website, compared with an agency serving many clients.
You also have a different perspective on SEO tools when your job is to build them. Even within agencies, there are different opinions when you have a focused set of tools to serve your niches versus an array of tools for diverse projects.
Russ Jones (@rjonesx) of Moz, Chris Long (@gofishchris) of Go Fish Digital, Cole Watts (@cole_watts) of Waste Industries, and Lee Kennedy (@LeeLKennedy) of Coalmarch Productions – these four will debate which SEO tools are the best. You will not only learn the SEO tools they like, but also why they like those tools, and if it’s the right choice for your project requirements.
Here’s a list of the SEO tool categories discussed:
These are a few of the questions our members have been asking about SEO tools which inspired this discussion.

This presentation had a special focus on Google Analytics. However, many of these concepts apply to any tool you’re using to collect data about visitors to your website and customers buying your products or services.
Given all the various analytics platforms and mountains of data, members of the Raleigh SEO Meetup want to know:
• How do I apply this information in my business?
• What one social media site should I focus on first, why?
• How to identify the best outreach methods, timing, message, and more using split tests and other data?
• How can I use SQL databases and server logs for SEO purposes?
If you have been struggling with similar questions, this event is for you.
Lee Kennedy (@LeeLKennedy) has been working in the marketing agency world for over 6 years with a big focus on SEO, PPC, and Analytics and currently, as the Analytics Director at Coalmarch Productions, he runs the technical side of the marketing department, where a large part of the job is overseeing the setup, QA, and reporting for the 40+ Google Analytics accounts that Coalmarch manages.
