The Big List: 80 Of The Hottest SEO, Social Media & Digital Analytics Tools For Marketers

Looking for software to help you do your job better? Look no further! Contributor John Lincoln has compiled a giant list of tools of for digital marketers.


In online marketing, having the right analytics tools and software can make a major difference. A good program can save you time and help demonstrate the value of your work to supervisors or clients.

Over the last couple of months, while preparing the syllabus for my next UC San Diego class and doing research for clients, I compiled and reviewed an extensive list of analytics programs for SEO and social media. I’m sharing what resulted in this column.

(Editor’s note: be sure to check out the 2015 Martech landscape for the latest developments in software for marketing.)

A few notes:

  • This is not a comprehensive list, but it is one of the biggest lists online and represents a solid chunk of what’s available out there. The entries aren’t in any particular order.
  • Many of the analytics programs also have some type of tool component — so you can take action on what you learn through analytics — and I included those, as well. There seems to be a natural progression in which tools add analytics elements and analytics programs add tools.
  • I did my best to include everything relevant to SEO and Social Media. If I missed a good one, make sure to let us all know in the comments.
  • I was unable to include every feature each of these analytic tools offered. The descriptions are brief and mostly come from the information offered at face value on the website, so if you’re a user and want to share info about an important feature (or about something that doesn’t work as described) please do so in a comment.
  • I don’t have any financial relationships with any of the companies mentioned here.

The Good Old Boys

Don’t forget about the core programs out there, of course. I think of these as some of the most important and haven’t mentioned them above because they’re practically a given. We love those too!

  1. Kiss Metrics
  2. Google Analytics
  3. Webmaster Tools
  4. Omniture
  5. Etc.

Summing It Up

I hope you enjoyed my list and hopefully found a new analytics program that got you excited. There are so many programs out there, it can be hard to keep up. If I missed one of your favorites let me know. Please keep in mind, I tried to stay away from programs that only have a tool component like Tweet Adder,  Screaming Frog and Xenu Link Sleuth. This was more of an analytics list.

Creating this list fascinated me. I really feel we are in the infant stages of Internet marketing analytics. Watching these programs and tools evolve is going to be very exciting. Special thanks to @DannyAtIgnite and @alyssa_ast for your help on some of the pricing research and write ups.
