So I have finally got around to typing up a few more notes from the SEO and Social Media Power Tools session at SMX London!
Aleyda Solis gave a great presentation in this session and shared some awesome tools that can help you be more productive when working on your SEO and Social Media campaigns. Unlike the other speakers she presented hers in the fashion of a problem and the tool/s that you can use to solve that problem. So without further ado:
