Great article, thank you! I agree with you that SEO is one of the most effective and affordable ways compared to other digital marketing methods. I started auditing my site with keyword targeting. But I needed an additional SEO tool or software that I could use to don't only keyword research and backlink monitoring, but also a more in-depth site audit. And I found a suitable option for this It's very convenient to always have a marketing plan in quick access, as well as to have other social tools. I think this is just a necessary measure for business owners who care about promoting their website and the business they are doing.
