As I said before, Traffic Travis is the perfect tool for both do-it-yourself webmasters and specialized companies, because it benefits from a healthy range of competitive analysis and keyword research tools (Traffic Travis actually refers to itself as the insider’s look at SEO without the hassle of having to learn it).

At first glance, it might seem a little difficult to understand, but the interface will soon become easy to understand.

Let’s take a look at some of its features:

In order to gain a profit in the future, you absolutely have to choose a profitable keyword. This means that you will have to learn more about the competition for the phrase or keyword, the CPC score etc. The Quick competition research tool will immediately tell you if a keyword is worth pursuing or not, according to different metrics. If you were to check this manually it would probably take a few hours. All you have to do is to type the desired keyword in the search box, and Traffic Travis will return 200 hundred results for the free version, and 3000 for the PRO version. From here on you can play with different filters, or arrange them according to different criteria.

It is always good to keep a close eye on how your next-door neighbor is doing, and Traffic Travis will make sure that you can do this with only the click of a button. You will be able to discover competitor’s backlinks by pagerank, anchor text, and other metrics. This is extremely important because it will give you powerful guest posting resources for link placing.

#5 The Big Players

Similar to the Links to Competitors tool, this tool will enable you to monitor your competition. In other words, you will be informed what keywords your competitors are paying to advertise on (keywords which are paid are usually very profitable). This will save you from the trouble of having to experiment with keywords, simplify your PPC efforts and save you important time and money.

This feature will also help you to spy on your competitors and find out what methods they are using in order to rank better on SERPs.

They are displayed according to the following columns: PageRank, Age, BL (backlinks on page), BLS (backlinks on site), TBL (total backlinks). The next attributes are displayed with the help of a tick or cross and they are: DMOZ (DMOZ directory), YAHD (Yahoo Directory), Title (keyword in page title) H1 tag, DESC (keyword in page description).

Among its many features, TT also offers comprehensive reports (graphs and diagrams) that will help you explain the SEO language to non-believers and clients.
