Topic Suggestions performs automated research to identify publication topics that add value and relevance specific to your domain.

The suggestions take into account variable metrics to calculate what topics are worth the effort and are evergreen in being content readers want at any given time.

Broken Links automatically detects website and page errors in the last 7 days giving you the ability to hone-in on resolving active & current issues that impact your traffic and revenue.

Being able to track what type of error and how often an issue occurs gives you the leverage to make corrections and move on.

This tool makes it as easy as possible to determine the best SEO-friendly tags to use for your site.

Page Booster will track all pages from your website and determine if they are trending up, stable, or trending down. For pages trending down, Page Booster provides a list of keywords that are losing search traffic and should be worked on in order to regain lost traffic.
