What is diib?
Diib is a data and answer platform that boldly claims to give accurate suggestions for your website’s growth.
In other words, submit your site to diib and get an actionable step-by-step plan to grow your traffic and presence online.
Now, is that just baloney or is there veracity to this claim?
Let’s find out by examining diib’s awesome features
I think that “awesome” gave the truth away, no?
Diib is extremely feature rich.
And while that is helpful and makes the tool great, it’s also helpful for you to read about the crucial features only, those that really make diib tick.
They are right below!
Diib styles itself as an answer engine.
An algorithmic approach to common traffic generation problems and solutions for those problems given in a plain language even a noob can understand with ease.
Whether that’s true you’ll see for yourself by continuing to read my diib review, but just from the image above you can see how diib showed me what’s right and what’s wrong with my site.
It gave me answers I needed, and now I know exactly how to improve my site.
That’s why it’s called an “answer engine.”
Note: for this feature to work you’ll need to connect your Google Analytics account with diib.
It’s a 4-click process and diib does all the heavy lifting in the backend. You just need to grant access to your analytics to diib.
As you can see in the image above, diib takes the data from GA and presents it to you inside it’s dashboard in, and this is my opinion only, better way than Google Analytics does.
To me, GA often looks extremely cluttered, while here in diib design is clean and focus is clearly on what matters the most- metrics you need to be following to make informed and better decisions.
And it’s the same data that GA shows you, so you don’t have to worry about inaccurate information.
Also, while you can look at daily traffic and traffic fluctuations, it also pays to have a bird’s eye overview of how your site is doing.
So you can easily switch between these reporting options:
Initially, diib gives you a site health score and a bunch of suggestions you need to follow to increase your score.
When you check off these tasks from your list that score naturally increases. And the goal is to get 100% site health.
Now, if you make improvement on the task but you don’t finish it completely, diib will update itself to show how much progress you’ve made and how much more you still need to do.
So it’s giving you a sense of momentum, progress and accomplishment when maybe, at that exact time, you’re feeling really down and all you want to do is crawl under your blanket and be undisturbed by anyone.
Hey, it’s happened to me before, and I bet it happened to you too.
How about an example?
Diib tells me I have 10 spammy backlink pointing at my site.
I need to remove those ASAP. But what if I remove 5 because I’m just dead tired and want and need a break?
Well, diib will congratulate me on the job well done and gently remind me there is still stuff to do.
I love it!
diib doesn’t just tell you what to do. They tell you why you need to be doing something.
So, in my spammy backlinks report, diib explains why removing links pointing to my site (which sounds counterintuitive at first) can actually help me grow in traffic.
And it’s like that for any task, alert and objective diib spits out. I love diib’s actionable learning library and I’m sure you will too.
How to Grow Your Online Presence Using Diib?
I promised you an actionable guide to using diib to get more traffic to your site, right?
Well, I intend to keep that promise and here are the steps to take full advantage of diib and its awesome features.
Step #1- Diib Dashboard- Overview of What You Need to Fix Right Now!
In your diib dashboard you will see an alert section.
I suggest you take care of those immediately because diib identified those problems as priority fixes, meaning that fixing them will give you a near-immediate boost in traffic.
Pro tip: click on “All Alerts” button and then take care of problems by prioritizing what you can do quickly and easily.
Step #2- Objectives for Sustained Growth
This tab shows you things that are not alerts and are not urgent but you still need to take care of them to ensure traffic growth.
Reports are divided into four categories:
- Visitor Experience Objective
- Traffic Objectives
- Mobile Experience Objectives
- Social Media Objectives
Depending on the site and how many recommendations you get, I recommend you take some time and plow through these and get them done quickly and early, in one huge batch.
It will help you tremendously, especially in the long run as you’ll be basically making your site a better place to be.
SEO report is divided into three sections:
- Search Engine Indexing
Here you can see all keywords you rank for along with important metrics like search volume, position changes, paid traffic cost etc.
The value of keyword report in diib is two fold.
First, you get a list of ALL keywords you rank for in a very digestible format. No clutter, just data.
Second, you need this knowledge to improve your traffic numbers.
Well, find keywords that rank in positions 11-20 then map them to their corresponding pages and posts.
Finally, boost those posts by:
- sending more internal and external links to them;
- updating the post;
- changing the publish date so it pops back on the first of the blog where most authority resides…
The potential for rankings growth here is enormous!
Dibb captures quite a few links pointing to your site and they show them to you along with the metrics like:
- domain strength,
- anchor text
- receiving url on your site.
This is all excellent info because it is crucial to know who’s linking to you and what anchor text they’re using.
However, the problem is that diib doesn’t distinguish between followed and nofollowed links.
That limits the usability of this report and I talk more about it in the diib cons section.
Search Engine Indexing
This is a simple report that shows you all pages on your site that have a no-index tag in their headers.
So you can scan and see if you didn’t block something by mistake.
So you can then unblock it and gain an SEO boost from the newly indexed page.

diib Pros and Cons
Standing at $29.99 per month Diib is dirt cheap considering that with it you get a whole suit of tools you need to move forward online.
CON: Backlinks missing data
I like diib so here I’m forced to nitpick about it’s flaws, starting with its backlinks database.
By missing data I mean you don’t know whether a certain link is followed or not.
And you have to know that to make good decisions.
For example, should you disavow an exact match anchor link from a spammy domain?
If it’s nofollowed, then you don’t need to worry and waste your time on it.
But how would you know where it passes link juice or not?
PRO: Easy to use and grasp
Diib’s dashboard is a model of effective design and a perfect example of how to pack many features into a product, yet make it look elegant and lightweight.
CON: Doesn’t remove the need for other tools
Despite what the tool might say if you’re serious about SEO, you will need to invest in other tools too.
In things like a solid backlink checker, keyword research tool, competitor analysis software…
PRO: Always updated
diib does a daily update of your website’s scoring, so you can easily see when you do something right; and when you messed up somewhere.
CON: Not a well known tool
I admit I only recently heard of diib. This is not their fault (perhaps they could market themselves a bit better- they’ve been in business since 2012) but I like to stick with tools that have been around for awhile like SEMrush, or Ahrefs or SpyFu.
It gives me a peace of mind because older tool are obviously profitable businesses and will exist far in the future.
PRO: Data is top notch
Here’s Ahrefs report for the total number of backlinks for my site:
And here’s where diib puts me:
No tool is perfect and no two tools give identical results, but I’m impressed that diib found more links than Ahrefs.
And all reports are top notch quality like that.
PRO: Newbie friendly
People who’re interested and use diib are always going to know a thing or two about SEO and growing traffic.
But diib makes sure not to leave any stone unturned and they provide detailed instructions for everything, and topped off with links to helpful resources.
As an SEO geek always yearning for more knowledge- I respect that.
Diib is perfect for newbies and solopreneurs who don’t have the money to hire a full time SEO consultant.They can then “hire” diib to help them grow despite the lack of funds.
Diib is dirt cheap for an SEO consultant 🙂
PRO: Free 24/7 access to an experienced growth expert
When you’re really stuck on something, as a premium member you have the option to shoot an email to your dedicated growth manager.
Simply explain the problem you’re facing and they will come up for a plan to beat it.
This is free service that comes with diib PRO.
DIIB REVIEW: VERDICT
I like diib. A lot.
It offers a ton of excellent features for cheap and I wish I had it when I was starting out a few years back.
If you’re a newbie who doesn’t know left from right when it comes to SEO and generating more traffic for your business- diib is an excellent choice for you.
If you’re a pro who wants to run an online business and not do SEO all day long- then diib is also for you.
But If you’re Neil Patel or Brian Dean, then you don’t need dib because what it found today you probably fixed yesterday:)
You or one of your many team members…
So, go get diib! You won’t regret it. I promise!
