"Resources so valuable, your website will never be the same."

You need to get the best out of your website or blog. Let's be honest, it's not easy. However, I have found some great online tools for webmasters and bloggers that aren't widely known, but are so useful that you'd be making a mistake if you didn't check them out. Resources so valuable, your website will never be the same.

Crazyegg - Visualization of your site visitors.

Crazyegg is an unbelievably great resource for webmasters. Crazyegg allows you to visually see stats on your website. You can see where your visitors are clicking - or not clicking - as well as where hits are coming from, search phrases, what browsers your visitors are using, and more.

Serph - Track buzz around the web.

Serph is a search engine that lets you find what people are saying about a specific topic (you, your business, your blog) on the web. Great for looking up the latest buzz around the internet, brought to you by the same people who made Crazyegg.

McDar Keyword Analysis Tool - Google keyword ranking analysis.

Mcdar Keyword Tool
The McDar Keyword Tool is a good tool for finding where your website ranks on Google for a specific keyword. A lot of fun to use, and for SEOs a valuable resource to see how your SEO efforts are paying off.

Pingoat - Free automatic blog pinging.

Pingoat is a free pinging service for bloggers - it allows you to send pings to a wide variety of networks in a few easy clicks. Instead of having to tell networks that you've updated your blog manually, Pingoat will do it automatically for you.
