SEO and Online Marketing Tools


Welcome to my list of favorite Internet Marketing Tools! I only recommend tools here that I have used and really liked. It includes a mix of free and paid tools (some of which I’m affiliate for and highly recommend).

Domain name research:

These are two great tools for domain name research! Okay, there. Now you know my secret!

  • Domize – near instant results for domain availability as you type the letters – very cool!
  • Wordoid – allows you to specificy what you want the domain to contain and it makes a variety of different domain names for you (you need to try it!)

WordPress hosts:

Get your hosting for WordPress here. You can also buy your domain names through them or go to a service like GoDaddy and just “point” the domain name to your host (note: I prefer these two hosts over GoDaddy hosting).

  • Blue Host – My favorie host (that I use today). I like the ease of use and great 24/7 phone support.
  • Host Gator – A lot of people like Host Gator and I used to use it for some of my domains.

Themes:
