    I've just gone and added Open SEO Stats – Google Chrome Extension after seeing that suggestion. It seems like something that might come in handy for me, more a time saver as I check some of those stats separately, so it's nice to have them all in one place.

    Traffic is down to many factors, with the most popular being focused on your SEO. SEO should be used throughout your content too.
    Is your site currently up to date? Focused on SEO? Optimised for mobile? etc

    Hi,

    A lot of the mentioned are free tools, with no subscription, others however may need to be paid for with a sub to it.
