Mid-Level Complexity SEO Tool

Hi,

Looked at Advanced Web Ranking SEO Package.  I felt it was pretty complicated.  Any less intense SEO software that can give a good comparison between my website and the website I want to emulate without being overly complex?  Free or paid - either way is good, as long as it is sort of mid-level in complexity and learning curve.

Thanks!

In this type of thing you may hear the term the "art and science" of....  meaning it is part science and a good part your own artwork.   A lot of this becomes your own trial and error and what works for one may not always work for the other.  

If you have a well coded site that is semantically correct and good content (that is not copy pasted from the source you want to emulate or any online source) and that content is continually updated, you will rise.  In addition getting a few quality backlinks (not from a paid source) will help.

Sites like http://moz.com/ and http://www.seobook.com/ will have some tools for you to use and are designed for both beginners and pros.  But you still have to do your research and understand where SEO is today.    On the "art" side, this is not like paint by numbers.  

Good luck!
