Some Free SEO Tools

free-tag

successful SEO is largely based around collecting and collating data. Sure, there’s the content creation aspects of the field, but none of that would work without first having a strong understand of the data to base your content around. The trouble is that a lot of people view SEO as a pay to win field, but that’s just not the truth. You don’t have to pay hundreds and thousands of dollars a month to beat the competition. Does it help? Of course, throwing money at a problem will almost always fix it, but the smart SEO practitioner knows that a little bit of sweat is worth a disproportionate amount of money.

To that end, today we want to share a great list of free SEO tools with you.

 

We’d love to take credit, but the list was put together by Chuck Price and published over at Search Engine Watch. You can find the list here.

The list includes tips on everything from research to content to technical tools, all of them powerful in their own way, and all of them free.

For what it’s worth, I’d like to make an additional recommendation here: the new and improved Raventools. It’s not free, but most businesses can get away with just using the version that’s a mere $99 a month. Maybe your digital marketing budget is slim, but if you can find some way to squeeze out an extra Benjamin to get Raventools, I promise you won’t be disappointed. It’s had its issues in the past and there are a couple minor annoyances they’re still working on fixing after the overhaul, but for the money, it’s one of the best values on the market.

In case anyone is suspicious by the way, no, I’m not being paid by Raventools.

Raventools, if you’re reading this and would like to pay me, you got my number baby.
