My 7 Favorite Free SEO Tools to Get Page 1 Rankings on Google

My 7 Favorite Free SEO Tools to Get Page #1 Rankings on Google | SEO takes too much time to do it manually, and if you unautomate a big chunk of your SEO work, you don't need to break the bank to do it. Over the last sixteen years of being a SEO, I figured out the right tools to use to help you rank number one on Google. Today, I'm going to share my seven favorite free SEO tools that'll help you get on page one of Google.

Mailchimp –
ConvertKit –
Ubersuggest –
MozBar –
Reddit –
Quora –
Yahoo! –
Panguin –
Markup Helper –
Ubersuggest Keyword Ideas –

Now, before I dive into the tools, I'm going to break down them into three main categories. They're going to be keyword research, then I'm going to go into link building, and then technical SEO.

So the tools will fit into one of those three categories. So let's first start with keyword research.

The first tool I have for you is FAQ Fox. Most people think only as keywords instead of thinking of problem.

When someone's looking for a new phone, chances are they're not satisfied with their old phone. When someone's looking up a math equation, chances are they don't know the solution, hence, they're looking it up.

FAQ Fox finds you questions that people want to be answered based on specific site that you want information from.

The second tool that I have for you is Ubersuggest Keyword Ideas. Ubersuggest has recently expanded its database from being a simple keyword tool where it has just basic terms, seed terms like marketing, to now over 1.2 million suggestions per keyword.

My favorite feature within the Keyword Ideas Report is the Comparisons Report, and the reason being is it'll give you all the keywords that are comparison-based.

Typically, when someone's searching for comparison-based keywords such as "Mailchimp versus ConvertKit," they've already determined that they're going to make a purchase.

The question is, what solution are they going to make?

Now, with Ubersuggest, it also shows you the search volume, the paid difficulty, the organic difficulty, and it even shows you all the other sites that are ranking, as well as how many backlinks they have, as well as social shares.

The second category of tools I have for you are related to link building. One of my favorite tools out there is a MozBar.

So the more authority that these sites have, and the more relevant they are, and when they link to you, it's going to do way better than, let's say, if Joe the Plumber linked to you.

See, with the MozBar, whenever you visit any website, it'll tell you their domain authority and their page authority. It's great to know which sites you should be focusing on when it comes to your link building versus which sites you need to ignore because it's just not worth the time and effort.

The next tool I have for you is Backlinks by Ubersuggest. It's another great tool!

All you have to do is go to Ubersuggest, type in a URL, click on the Backlinks button in the left navigation. When you do that, you'll see the Backlinks Report. It'll tell you the domain score of the site. It'll tell you the authority of all the URLs linking to that site. It'll even tell you the anchor text, the link growth over time, how many new links are getting over each and every single day, and how many links are losing each and every single day.

You'll even see anchor text. You'll even see things like how many no follow links a website has versus do follow, when these links first came to that site, when they link out. You'll see when the link is also lost, the exact date.

Now, what I mainly use the Ubersuggest Backlinks Report for is typing in my competitor URLs, seeing what pages on their site are popular, what's getting the most links, and I typically start from there.

The third category of tools I have for you are related to technical SEO. So let's start with the Panguin Tool.

The next tool I have for you is Structured Data Markup Helper.

Look, if you want to maximize your voice traffics, over 50% of the searches now are voice-based, this will help. If you want things like rich snippets,if you want those star ratings, you need Structure Markup.

        The data given on Ubersuggest is accurate per our data sources. Each tool has different data sources hence why you’re seeing discrepancies in the data 🙂

      Other tool : 82

      Always great info. But what are your thought on those who say if you write super valuable content optimized then Google will rank it organically on its own?

    12. Sameera Stefania December 16, 2019 at 6:43 pm #

      Interesting !

    13. Siddhant Jain December 16, 2019 at 7:12 pm #
