SEO Tool Box
You have to learn to use the right tool for the job. Something my father instilled in me. Some tools can be used in various instances in multiple ways but often the best tool for a job is the tool specifically designed for the need that you have, all inclusive and bundled combos usually come with a sacrifice. This page provides a collection of free (or paid when noted that) SEO tools out on the web, SEO tools provided by UltimateSEO and SEO software to be run on your PC/Mac. Any tool only available on one OS is noted with an *. Jake of all trades … master of nothing. You’ve gotta experiment and use as many tools as you can find.
Can’t Live Without SEO Tools
This category is small, these are SEO Tools that you have to use, if you dont youre a fool. Many paid tools integrate with the tools here for their data.
- Search Engine Console – Google product that is not the same as Google Analytics. Totally free and invaluable for organic search traffic data.

Pricey SEO Tools

- SEOQuake – Chrome Browser Extension – Google Chrome Extension by SEMRush (SEMRush Extension)
- WebSite Auditor* – SEO Powersuite – Free options available, with poor portability. First level of paid license lacks ability to export data, limiting usefulness.
