In this article, we will be going to share the top 77 SEO free as-well-as paid tools that you should have to know to make your SEO more powerful and comfortable.
First, we made a list of 101 SEO tools and removed unnecessary ones. So, now we have a list of the top 77 SEO Tools and resources that may allow you to do a better SEO and compete in this Internet world.
Are you ready to read this article?
I humbly want to know your thoughts and suggestions. So kindly comment.
Let us dive into the deep sea of SEO tools in 2021.
Why did I put Google Analytics as the first tool for SEO? The reason is its performance.
Google Analytics is a free service provided by Google to analyze the data of the website. It gives you functioning to check your data like where visitors come from, is your website mobile-friendly, the most popular web pages, real-time users visited your website, which age group visits your website the most, gender, bounce rate, and much more.
You can perform A/B testing with Google Analytics by adding two different contents on your website and analyze them through Google Analytics.
From day one, you should have to use Google Analytics. It is the tool that digital marketers use to check the organic performance of the website.
In a busy schedule with the Google analytics app (For Android & iPhone and iPad), you can evaluate and maintain your website performance.
Like Google Analytics, it is also free and developed by Google. It allows you to perform better SEO practice.
When I were a beginner in this SEO world, I would confuse between Google analytics and Google webmaster. But don’t worry, I will try to make it all clear.
When Google analytics talks about the number of visitors, Google webmaster shows how many times your website has seen on search engines (Google).
Google webmaster helps us finding out all website errors and lets you know what is wrong with your site.
Google Webmaster Features
- Measure traffic and performance
- Show Coverage issues and help to fix them.
- Analyze clicks, keywords position, total impressions, avg. CTR and more.
- URL Inspection – Get details of your web-page crawl, index, and serving.
- Mobile Usability – It helps you know whether your website works properly on mobile/tablet or not.
- Sitemaps – Adding a sitemap lets Google which web page you have that they need to index.
- Manual actions – If you are flagged by manual penalties because of neglecting SEO rules, you will be notified. There is a team of Google who keeps an eye on websites that perform unwanted tasks. Like creating po#n or spammy links, adds thin contents, and more. No manual actions mean no need to worry but always check notifications related to the same.
Verify your website’s ownership by adding verification code, seems something like “<meta name=”google-site-verification” content=”xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx”/>” and you are done. It will start showing your website performance and errors so you can rectify them accordingly.
Google Tag Manager
It is one of the rich Google tools in terms of features that I do not use it.
It is free but complicated and does not recommend using bloggers and small websites that newly started their online business.
I added it to the list to give you a quick interview over this tool. I agree with the fact that Google tag manager is cool, and one should know if they are going to work in an eCommerce industry or for something big project.
Google tag manager is an upgraded version of Google Analytics that allows you to add and manage marketing tags (generating heat maps, rich snippets & tracking pixels) to get better control over your website.
There are several features in Google analytics that are not accessible without Google tag manager.
Google tag manager helps you to track the website audience, retarget them, and take steps. In short, it is a bridge between developers and marketers.
It transfers event and data towards Google analytics, extended eCommerce, and helps you to screen 3rd Party tags to understand how good your website is performing and where you need to make improvements.
Using tag manager means no more need to change website codes. Whenever you need to change your tags, you just have to open the GTM dashboard and make the changes.
If you delegated your marketing part to an outsider company, you do not need to give access to your website database to them. So, it is secure, fast, and reliable for you.
Google Page Speed Insight
Have you recently built a fascinating website to start a blog or a business?
Spent weeks or months?
Spend a lot of money?
But, is it not fast as much as you wanted?
The solution is Google PageSpeed Insight.
I know that speeding up a website is not a piece of cake but not hard with this tool.
Google Page Speed Insight is another powerful tool by Google. It leads you to know how fast a particular web page is and what you need to do to make it smooth and fast.
It gives a quick report related to web page performance on any device such as mobile, desktop, or tablet.
Here we analyzed our website webhostingreviewsx.co.uk and what we saw is this.
It scored very poorly on the Mobile version. So, we need to make favorable changes according to the requirements and suggestions.
But the website is working pretty well on the desktop version and got 80 out of 100. So now, we know where the errors are and what we need to do.
Thus, always keep in mind website speed while designing and developing it.
Note – Having a slow website leads to a higher bounce rate and ultimately affect organic ranking.
Google Keyword Planner
Within SEO or Search Engine Optimisation, keyword research is the primary task that one does. Without doing quality keyword research, you are going to the deepest part of the sea without an oxygen tank.
So, the question is, do you want more traffic?
If yes, then put more effort into keyword research.
Google put the power in your hands by giving this ravished tool. At the very starting, it was free but no more as it is mandatory to start a PPC campaign to get better features in it.
This tool has made for pay per click, but people use it for better SEO strategies.
Apart from that, if you are not aware of this lovely tool known as Keyword planner or using it, you are doing something wrong.
Keywords Planner is a tool that allows you to check traffic over a particular keyword of a specific country with its competition level. It offers related search terms, ad group ideas, keyword suggestions, and suggested bid for PPC.
For instance, according to Keyword Planner, a keyword like Dog Training has 10k to 100k traffic with the medium competition, whereas the suggested bid is 2.07 USD.
Search words and phrases that describe your business or blog, and you will get hundreds of results related to your query that would be most relevant. You may add filters as per your requirements and get what you want.
I agree with the fact that most digital marketers say it is no more relevant tool after hiding exact monthly search volumes. But do not worry, we have already put the best alternatives of Keyword planner.
Google Trends, a tool that allows you to know what people are searching for frequently within a small-time. Using this tool, you can easily change or rectify your marketing strategies.
You can compare search volume between two or more search terms with Google trend.
Let me share my personal experience with Google Trend.
It was summertime. I was working in the VPN industry for a company, and that company wanted to focus on keywords that others are not focusing on too much, or you can say the lowest competitive keywords.
I just searched best VPN website and got results with keywords like Best VPN for School and VPN service to access school internet and so on.
Then I checked traffic of the same keywords on Keyword planner and their alternative but got no traffic. Whereas it was showing “breakout” which means search term grew by more than 5000%.
Within Google trend, you get filters option location-wise, compare up to 5 queries, share the data with others, embed that data that works in real-time, and much more.
Now, something that I learned from the Google trend is that all keywords have no same traffic all the time. Two years back, I worked for an eCommerce website dealing with gifts, flowers, teddys, chocolates, and stuffs like that.
I searched the “Valentine Day gifts delivery” on keyword planner and SEMrush a few days before Valentine’s day and got the same traffic result that I had found at Christmas. But noticed a huge difference on “Google Trend”. There was no traffic in Christmas time over the keyword “Valentine’s Day gifts delivery” but breakout at valentine’s week.
And it is obvious that expect a few, no one is going to search any seasonal keyword all the time. So, always keep this in your mind.
Before investing your time in Google Business or Google My Business which is commonly known as Google Listing, you should know about it.
GMB is best for Local SEO where their services are in a short area and having a Google listing is the best way to gain more visibility and according to Hootsuite, 70% of visitors love to connect with that business that has their local listing.
Google Business is creating your business profile on Google where you can put all the details regarding your business such as type of business or category, opening, and closing timing, upload business images, add posts, address, about yourself and allows your customers to put their reviews and much more. You can manage and optimize your business profile with GMB.
In other words, GMB’s free service allows you to make an online presence across the major search engine Google and gives you more than you never thought.
All the information you put in your GMB or Google My Business is a show on Google map as well so.
All you need to do to get a listing for your business is to create a profile on “Google My Business” and send a request to get it verified where it will take up to 12 days depends on your location to get a verification code via podcast.
Google Mobile-Friendly Test
Today, mobile is changing the whole world and the majority of the people have at least one mobile, and the world has been shifting from desktop to mobile as it is convenient and easily accessible.
According to the study, 60% of Google searches come from mobile.
You must have a website that has a good layout over mobile or should be mobile-friendly and to check the mobile-friendliness of your website, visit here
Having a mobile-friendly website means good search engine ranking and in past few years, Google has launched several algorithms for mobile version websites.
Your website should have responsive, easy to load, good structure alt tags, and much more. That is why the Google Mobile-friendly Test tool is really-really important for one who wants to get higher traffic through mobile.
So, how much you scored on Google mobile-friendly test?
How Can I forget SEMrush?
Without this tool, this list is incomplete.
So, what is SEMrush, and what we get from it?
SEMrush is a complete digital marketing toolkit and it is a tool that allows us to analyze a website’s traffic, competitors, backlinks, keywords traffic, can improve your web-page, and more. In short, it assists you to perform on-page SEO tasks and run SEO campaigns.
No problem, if you have either limited or limitless experience, SEMrush makes everything easy for you.
Is It Free or Paid?
SEMrush is available for free and paid but the major problem is it is too costly and with the free version, you can search up to 7 queries with one account.
- Check website performance
- Find valuable keywords
- Competitor analysis tool
- Backlink finder
- Traffic checker
- Position Tracking tool
- Domain Overview tool
- Display Advertising Reports
- URL Reports
Google Alerts is a tool that helps us to research a particular topic where anyone can add a keyword and get notified through “Gmail” whenever something new Google finds on their search engine.
Generally, I use it to track my competitors and it helps me a lot to know what kind of marketing strategies they are following.
For instance, let me take the same gifting industry example once again, I used to put all the keywords related to my competitors’ brand and whenever they publish something over the web and google crawled it, I get notified. That is how, I always am one step ahead of my competitors and know where they are publishing new content and which place, they are getting backlinks from.
Google provides multiple options to deliver notifications and filtrations so use it according to your needs.
While writing this part of the blog, I opened “Google Alerts” and found that I have already created an alert for my website with the keyword “XplorMedia”.
Don’t you think it is really good to track your competitors? I found it so late but not for those who just started working in the SEO world. So, use it and achieve your SEO goals.
Google Structured Data Testing Tool
Structured Data Testing Tool is another tool that belongs to Google that one should use to check web pages’ markup.
This tool is the creation to test, develop and rectify structured markups on your webpage and it helps to know Google bots about a page’s content such as whether it is related to reviews, food recipes, or any other. And this information generally uses to display your Search engine result and when I searched “Page FAQ Schema”, I got this.
The website that is marked in the image is using “PAGE FAQ schema” and the result in front of you.
Similarly, there are a lot of Structured Data Markups such as articles, reviews, Events, Movies, Products, and more.
A Quick Guide Over How To Use GSDTT
Suppose, you are selling movie tickets online.
All you have to do it, add Schema mark up for movies on a particular web-page, where Google loves “JSON-LD” and if you use JSON-ID it shows markup quickly on a search result and to confirm whether you put correct codes or not, use “Google Structured Data Testing Tool”.
I am not going to talk too much about this SEO tool because this tool is being “shut down” but I wanted to share something for beginners and in replace of it, Google has introduced “rich results”. I genuinely need to read and use this tool before writing anything over it as I had no clue about it. Maybe it is an upgraded version of the “Google Structured data testing tool” or something different. So, I sorry not to give you proper information about rich results”.
Google Disavow Tool
A Friend In Need A Friend Indeed, I assume that you’ve heard this line several times and this is the specialty of “Disavow tool”.
I know most of us to think that link penalties are outdated but believe me, it is not.
You can get penalized because of spammy links so you should always audit your backlinks and you can download your website’s backlink from various sources such as Google webmaster, Link Explorer, SEMrush, and many other tools.
I have used Disavow tool several times for our client’s websites who got penalized and wanted our help so this SEO tool is damn familiar with me and I genuinely love it as Disavow tool is part of backlinking.
On Twitter, I got following twits of random people talking about Disavow tool and links.
Whenever you feel some unnatural backlink then start auditing them as several times our competitors create them so we get panelised.
Now, the question is how can I find spammy, thin, or unnatural backlinks?
First, search on Google’s “Backlink checker” and use at least 8 to 10 websites (including Google webmaster) to get your website’s backlinks.
Categories them with Domain authority, language, spam score, and links that you haven’t created.
Make the first spreadsheet for websites from which you are getting link(s) that are different than your website’s language. Let say, your website is in English and you are getting links from Chinese websites.
You are going to Disavow almost every single backlink of the first sheet.
Now, with the help of the bulk domain authority checker tool, find DA of all websites and filter them from low to high, and put all the backlinks in the first spreadsheet which have lower domain authority than you or at least those which have the least domain authority.
Similarly, all disavow backlinks from spammy websites.
And disavow them all.
A tool to check website’s performance made by Google using open-source. Audit your website’s Performance, Accessibility, Best Practice, and SEO.
Using this tool will help you to make your website better for a higher ranking.
Bing SEO Analyzer
I know when we talk about SEO, Google is the only one that comes into our mind but the truth is that Bing is doing really well and constantly trying to compete with Google (a search engine giant).
Getting higher ranking on Bing is much easier than Google as many of us just ignore Bing’s guidelines to get better ranking.
As you can see in the above Screen Short, I have got 132 users so ignoring Bing means losing your business.
Bing SEO Analyzer is the tool that helps you to collect the information or data of your website that can help you to rank higher on Bing. This tool will show you all the errors that might affect your ranking so using it will lead you to go to a better place.
Bing Markup Validator
Bing Markup Validator works similarly as Google Structured Data Testing Tool but for Bing.com.
To use this tool, log in to your webmaster dashboard and come to the “Diagnostics & Tools” section where you will find the Markup Validator tool.
Bing Keyword Research Tool
I have already given you basic information about the Keyword planner tool above under “Google keyword planner” so you can easily understand why Bing launched the “Bing Keyword Research Tool”.
Just like Google keyword planner, Bing keyword research tool gives you traffic, CPC, ad group ideas, and related keywords information for their search engine.
Bing Webmaster & Analytics
We all know well that Google is the only option for better search results but within few years Bing is working frequently on their search engine that is why they developed their webmaster and analytics. So, if you want to check your website’s traffic coming through Bing then you need this tool as well.
Moreover, I use the majority of Bing’s SEO tools to generate more traffic.
Bing Submit URLs
Google has removed this service a few years ago where you can submit your URL and let their bots know URL’s existence so they can crawl and index it. Similarly, you can send a request to crawl your URL with the help of “Bing submit URLs” and it will be indexed in no time on Bing.
Answer The Public
Content is king and we all accept this but the major question is on which topic should I write which has less competition and enough traffic?
