Why the Ultimate List Exists
It is our hope, if you’ve found this Ultimate List of Digital Marketing Tools, that its contents will dazzle and delight you.
Still, by the time you’re reading these words, you’re likelier to wonder something like: what’s the catch?
In other words:
What do YOU (theCLIKK) have to gain from this?
Why go to all this trouble without even asking for an email address?
The answer, friends, is that the Ultimate List of Digital Marketing Tools is an SEO magnet.
What’s an SEO magnet?
An SEO magnet is a web page or set of web pages designed to attract organic traffic from Google for specific target keywords.
That’s a mouthful, so let’s zoom out and think about what we’re doing here — “we” meaning You and Us, the consumers and producers of this content (respectively).
What are we exchanging here?
Economists knew this all along, but (as our society is beginning to learn) free stuff online isn’t truly free. Wherever you find value online, there’s some exchange happening even if you’re not handing over money.
A lot of times, if you find a resource like this one, it’s gated. You might get a peek for free, but then you have to pay for full access, whether that means paying money OR providing something like your email address. These gates can be annoying to consumers, but at least the exchange is clear and direct: you know what you’re giving up and you know what you’re getting in return.
An SEO magnet is still an exchange, but it’s indirect. You don’t have to give us anything to consume this resource because consuming this resource —is— giving us something. Namely: you are validating Google’s “trust” in this resource by lingering on our pages, by interacting with them, by linking to them, by sharing them. It takes time to build up rank, but in the long run, we stand to earn a lot more (of Google’s “free” organic traffic) if we leave the resource open and let the whole internet participate.
Sometimes you make more giving things away for free than you do selling them. 🤷🏼♂️
We can teach you how to build your own.
In full sincerity, everything written above would have been more than enough reason to build this Ultimate List.
But also, in full disclosure: we gotta practice what we preach, because we sell an on-demand workshop all about SEO magnets. The workshop is designed to give you everything you need in the span of an afternoon—from a crash-course primer in plain English all the way through a clear plan to building your own SEO magnet (with our handy guides and resources all included).
Either way, since you’re currently within an SEO magnet, we’ll share…
Three Sample Lessons
1️⃣ The content actually has to be worthwhile for readers. One key distinction about SEO magnets is that they are “playing Google’s game,” but they are NOT “gaming Google.” This isn’t hacky stuff we’re doing here; if we had shortcuts and silver bullets, we wouldn’t have bothered with all this content.
In fact, 98% of the work here is the content itself—not just because we want all these words and links here, but because we want to maximize the chances that people linger on these pages and link to them. The surest way to motivate that behavior is to build something legitimately cool and helpful for the audience.
2️⃣ This resource (like any SEO magnet) has a deliberate structure. A few things to notice:
(A) Right now, you’re on what we call the Zero Page, which is like the “home page” for this resource. It targets the keyword phrase “digital marketing tools” in both the main headline (H1) and the slug (end of the URL).
(B) This zero page is the “parent” page for all of the individual pages (with tools listed by category), which is how the slugs are able to “stack” (with the / between digital-marketing-tools and XYZ-tools-for-digital-marketers at the ends of the URLs).
(C) We’ve made sure to thoroughly inter-link these pages, both for the user experience (so it’s easy to keep browsing if you want) and for the Googlebot (so they’ll see a clear relationship between the pages in the Ultimate List resource).
3️⃣ You don’t need to be spammy to get Google’s attention. In fact, you shouldn’t be. Let’s just say this is not a “squeaky wheel gets the grease” situation. More and more, it will backfire if you try to make pages excessively “loud” for certain keywords.
To dispel a pair of common misconceptions:
(A) You don’t need to cram all the content into a single webpage to boost your SEO—and there are practical reasons not to do that in many cases. A set of pages, properly linked, can be perfectly suitable.
(B) Your target keywords do need to appear, and prominently—but beyond that, it doesn’t help you to repeat them over and over and over again.
