All the SEO’s with an iPhone I need your help

With todays world of SEO’s having to be on their game so much I know I am using my iPhone more and more to help me do more of the tasks that I need to do. The idea of the little hand held computer being able for me to call up an app and do a SEO task is very exciting one for me and it also allows me to not be tied to my desk all day all the time.

I have 2 or 3 for SEO that I use but I know there are more of them out there in the iTunes store

What I need from you all to take a sec or two and add a comment below with the apps you use in your iPhone to help you with your SEO work while you are away from your desk.

Add one add ten. Add the name or a link to the app. just add your favorites. If you want also tell me why you like or don’t like the ones you use. Dose it mater if they are free or paid?

I am looking to create a list of apps that can be used for SEO work.

I want to take the list of iPhone SEO apps and break it into some categories. The list of categories I was thinking of using is:

  • Research
  • Reporting
  • Rankings
  • Analytics

Re these the right categories? Am I missing any categories? Would you add or rename any of them?

Once I have a good list I will publish the list here with some of your comments but, also pick some of the apps and writes a reviews on the ones that get the most mentions or most comments.

Thanks in advance for your help and as always thanks for reading

Check out Deep Ripples’ favorite SEO apps on the Iphone. Blogged about on SEOmoz back in December. http://www.seomoz.org/ugc/my-top-5-favorite-seo-apps-for-iphone Very convenient.

The only thing I really use on my iPhone is Shaun Inman’s Mint for real-time stats. There’s an iPhone Pepper (aka plugin) that you can add, which makes it look perfect in Safari. Then for each site you use it on, you can create an app button (aka bookmark) for it.

Interesting because I’ve been complaining about the lack of a mobile seo app for some time now.

- Google Analytics app is a must: really well built app and almost gets you as much info as if you were in your normal browser. And good to pull quick stats at meetings or whatever.

- PokeSEO: honestly not super, but basic and when the app actually works it gives you PageRank number, and approx backlinks for G/Y/B & aol and allows you to email that little report. Nothing I’d ever use for clients but quick look on the run I suppose

- EasyWhois: mostly for digging into who owns a domain and if it’s available and pulling dns &/or mx information… but they have a “webanomics” option that gives PR and some backlink info… again nothing great.

- SEO Check: I have the LITE version (and it crashes ALL the time)… so I can’t save any searches or do research on more than one KW at a time but when the app works, it’ll give you where you rank for a specific keyword… does some basic graphing too if you have the pro version. I can see this one having some potential but not right now.

I know http://authoritylabs.com is working on one too… they have one but it’s enter a domain and a KW and it’ll pull the domain’s rank for that KW… If they built it to do what the actual site does that’d ROCK so much but… not yet anyways.

@Bill 2 of those apps aren’t even in the app store anymore and one of the sites is down lol… fail
