DIYSEO is a professional SEO company offering out its tools and services to small business owners looking to improve their search rankings. We are mostly looking at the tools on offer, but it is worth noting that DIYSEO can provide a full SEO engagement whereby their staff will orchestrate a campaign on your behalf. However, if you want to take control of matters yourself, DIYSEO is a great starting point and will soon have you moving up the search rankings.
Getting started with DIYSEO is very simple and you can get a free SEO scorecard for your site just by providing your email address. The tools are completely web based so you can access them from any location to keep track of your site's rankings. The whole application is very well designed with a customized dashboard and easy to understand reports on your site. We found everything incredibly easy to use and it's clear that this is a service aimed at complete newcomers to SEO. While this is a good thing, it is likely that as you become more experienced in SEO, you will want more advanced tools.
DIYSEO is very good at letting you track all kinds of metrics related to the SEO for your site and generating well designed reports on them. However, its distinguishing feature is the ability to generate a custom action plan with easily manageable steps to improving the search rankings for your site. Tailored to your industry and business, these plans are split into actionable tasks each with an estimate of the time it will take and an automated way of checking its success. This is an excellent way of managing SEO for a first timer and turns an, at times, difficult process into a set of easy steps.
In terms of price, DIYSEO offers great value for money. A year's subscription is around the same price as a couple of months subscription to some services. Granted, the functionality isn't quite as advanced as some other services, but as a starting point to getting into SEO it works well. With a monthly pricing model you can always upgrade to a different service when it becomes necessary too.
We would highly recommend DIYSEO to anyone looking to perform SEO on their own web site. It provides a simplified way to make sure you have done all the important things to improve your site's search rankings. The service is designed for individuals new to the world of SEO so SEO professionals looking for advanced tools may want to look elsewhere. Otherwise, a free trial is available so nothing is stopping you getting started right now.
Please note that DIY SEO has now been discontinued.
