SEO Project Management Software from Solo SEO

It can be really helpful have a full set of tools that can allow you to manage and control information related to SEO projects.

I had the chance to talk with Michael Jensen and Aaron Stewart of Solo SEO while at Pubcon a couple of weeks back, and offer some input and suggestions on their new SEO project managment software, which launched today. They already had a nice set of tools aimed at helping someone working on an SEO project collect information about their efforts, and track those carefully. But they were also willing to take notes, and listen carefully to some new ideas.

Andy Beal describes a number of the features that they offer with their Solo SEO software, and Michael Jensen talks about it more in their blog – Announcing SoloSEO.com, a new SEO Project Management solution.

I don’t normally write about products and software here, but I’m making an exception in this case because the creators of this software have shown that they are paying attention to what people within the industry are asking for, and that they are listening. And, there are some nice tools included here that make the management of SEO projects easier.

There’s a free two week demo for the software. If you try it, I’d be interested in hearing what you think.

  1. Excellent set of criticisms there, cK. And a nice answer from Solo SEO. If these folks remain this responsive, they might end up with something that will help lots of folks.

    I’d recommend to folks who might be interested in having an SEO project managment program that does what they want it to do to take the demo for a spin, and provide some feedback.

    I wrote about SoloSEO on my blog this morning and they’ve already incorporated many of the suggestions I made. Good stuff!

  3. Everyone seems to praise this software so far. I sure the people behind the software are awesome, but I’m not sold on it just yet. I maybe alone in my thoughts, but it seems over-hyped already (and it’s only been two days! Oh the power on the internet.)

  4. Hi Eric,

    Just curious, but what would it take for them to do to the software to make you want to use it?

    Incorporating some type of analytics program within it would be terrific, for one – with the ability to see if keywords you are aiming at are actually drawing traffic that leads to conversions.

    I’d also like to see the ability for multiple people to look at the same projects, and leave notes for each other, and assign tasks, provide deadlines, and track time spent on aspects of a project.

    Will this grow in that direction? I don’t know. But, I can hope.

  5. I have ideas for what I want to see, and I’ll put them out there for all to see in a post once I gather my thoughts in detail later in the week. This topic hits close to home with me because a product such as this has been in the back of my head for quite some time. For example, I do have a relationship with another software provider who’s product does different things I like and other things I don’t. It could be I just expect too much from a product, especially when it comes to a monthly fee for tools that are already available for fee elsewhere on the web. (I think I’m just gonna develop my own at this point!)

  6. I’ll be looking forward to that, Eric.

    There are a lot of free SEO tools on the web. What has me somewhat excited is the ability to keep all of the information together, and view it in a meaningful manner, without having to result to a number of spreadsheets that may not integrate the information in a helpful way. And something that is available online, that can be shared easily with others that you may be collaborating with.

  8. I am often asked by new clients what are the process steps in an SEO project and how is project management managed?

    The issues are somewhat different between a brand new website than with a website already online. and that is just one point! Is there a project management software that is geared to seo and can it be shared over the internet so that clients can see what is going on?

  9. Hi Andy,

    I’ve spent some time in the past looking for off the shelf project management software that is geared specifically for SEO with little luck in finding such a solution. The tools that Solo SEO offers are helpful, but they don’t allow you to manage a campaign step-by-step, with multiple participants, time tracking for problems, internal communication on projects, and so on.

    Building and maintaining (and updating) processes for SEO campaigns can be very unique to every SEO and agency that runs campaigns. It would be nice to have very flexible software that combines an in depth awareness of SEO with top-notch project management tools – maybe we’ll see something like that be built someday.
