Last year at MozCon 2013, we kept a list of all of the tools that were mentioned by speakers. At MozCon 2012, Thomas Høgenhaven started the concept: MozCon 2012 Tools. They’ve been great resources that I refer back to frequently, and this year we’re keeping track again.
So, below is a list of all of the tools mentioned at MozCon 2014, divided into the following categories:
- Content & Data Visualization Tools
- SEO Tools
- Link Building, Outreach, & PR Tools
- UX, CRO, & Design Tools
- Community & Social Media Tools
- Analytics Tools
- User Research Tools
- Business Management & Development Tools
This list will be updated in real-time (wi-fi permitting) over the next 3 days. Also, be sure to check out our highlights of the best quotes from MozCon 2014.
