My favorite tools I am using to improve my website

Last Update: May 15, 2016

Hi there, it's been a while since I posted something. Today I would like to share my favourite tools I have picked up mainly by reading other members blogs and training tutorials.

I do hope you find them as useful as I do.


  • To get free images I use pixabay.com. I haven't used any other providers since I find the images sufficient for my needs.
  • To create my graphics for Pinterest, facebook and my articles I use canva.com. It's easy to navigate, user-friendly - just love it.
  • Well, English is my second language, so I definitely needed help with grammar, spelling, punctuation etc. So I signed up with grammarly.com. You can even join their affiliate program. I did and reviewed them on my website. Absolutely helpful in writing and editing my posts.
  • Plugins I have installed and love: SuMoMe and Yoast SEO. Especially the Yoast Seo is incredibly helpful when it comes to creating SEO friendly post. At the end of each post, there is a checklist that tells you what steps to take to improve your article.
  • Also, when I installed the Yoast SEO I created a bing/yahoo account. As a new customer/user, Bing gave me an NZ$100 voucher. I used this voucher to create a few PPC campaigns (Kyle did a training about doing a PPC campaign) . It drives traffic to my site and I even had a few Amazon Sales. And the best part it didn't cost me anything. I still got NZ$18 left. Exciting stuff.
  • Lastly, when I have spare time I go to site comments to offer comments and ultimately receive comments for my posts. Great tool for everyone I think.

Please feel free to add to the list by commenting below Would love to hear what you have found helpful when creating and building your website.

All the best

Anke

Hi Anke
What a wonderful post - a nice summary. Thanks.
I use Pixabay but still with All-In-One-SEO and often think I should give Yoast a try as people seem to rave about it.
All the best with your future development.
