One of my top tools for SEO (search engine optimization) is SEM Rush. However, every research effort is followed by a manual search and comparison using other tools. Microsoft and Google are constantly releasing new tools to help businesses improve their SEO. Today I’d like to share 3 tools you can use to help your website rank higher on the web.
Google has renamed the popular analytics and data platform from Google Data Studio to Looker Studio. Our team created 14 Industry Reports on Lead Generation using Looker Studio. The reports focused on data for the 5 most populous states: California, Texas, Florida, New York and Pennsylvania. In the reports, we used data from Keyword Planner, US Census and Meta to provide marketing research that will lead you to better understand how people are searching for your products and services.
There are many use cases for Looker Studio. For our team, it’s allowed us to pull data from various sources and create reports that can help sales and management teams better understand marketing attribution and ROMS (return on marketing spend).
It’s safe to say that if you’re running paid ads without optimized landing pages, you’re likely to see poor performance. Microsoft Smart Pages was released last year. It gives advertisers the ability to create Landing Pages quickly while creating your ads.

Once you’ve created your free account you’ll want to focus on 4 key areas:
The #1 tip for getting the most out of your tool is to use it and compare the results month after month.
I also use manual searches on all Search Engines. Google’s suggestions (known as Google autocomplete) – the results that automatically appear when you type a word or phrase into the Google search box – immediately reveal results about niche audiences. They work based on popularity or similarity. So if something is trending in Google’s suggestions – it means lots of people are searching for the same topic at the same time. I don’t recommend using any Chrome extensions. You may also want to do this incognito on Firefox, while not logged into any Google products.
