If you're just starting out in SEO or you're experienced, these free online SEO tools will help you better serve your clients.
BEST FREE ONLINE SEO EVALUATION TOOLS
One of the best free complete SEO tools online has to be SEO Group. SEO Group gives you the opportunity to conduct a free SEO evaluation on the website of your choice. Although this free tool doesn't check every SEO factor, it does evaluate most of the major issues of SEO. The graphics, data, and analysis from these SEO audit reports are very professional, certainly a great free SEO tool to use.
Web SEO Analyzer is one of the most complete free SEO online tools available. Web SEO Analyzer can review your links, keywords, SERPs, indexed pages, and much more. The upgraded version is a must have tool if you have the funds to purchase the software. If you don't, the great folks at Web SEO still gives you great reports on a website's SEO.
BEST FREE ONLINE COMPLETE SEO SOFTWARES
At Hale Associations, we found that one of the best free online complete SEO softwares is SEO Powersuite. SEO Powersuite has a variety of great free tools that you can download. This SEO software includes SEO Spyglass, which uses tools to see what your competition is doing. Link Assistant helps you create strong links with other webmasters. Buzz Bundle allows you to build a strong social media platform for clients. Website Auditor allows you check a site's links, page ranks, domain age, link values, and more. Rank Tracker gives you the tools to check your rankings and evaluate their progress.
If you choose the free version of SEO Powersuite, you'll only have limited access to these SEO tools, but their still very useful. The paid software gives you everything that you need to provide professional SEO services. You can create and save reports with the paid version, you can't with the free version. Even so, this is a great free SEO tool to use for anyone.
BEST FREE ONLINE SEO LINK ANALYSIS TOOLS
The Moz Open Site Explorer is a popular online SEO tool that is well known and used. Open Site Explorer can be used to check the quality of your links and your link structure. You can use this SEO tool for free, but it only shows so many links at a time. Another great link checking tool is Majestic SEO. Majestic SEO is my favorite free SEO and link checker tool to use. You can only use this tool a few dozen times per day, but the free version gives a lot of great details on your links.
I use to recommend Google Webmasters Tools, but at this time, you can't rely on the information provided. I'm sure Google is trying to fix this, but at this time, you can count on the numbers. If you don't have the money to buy SEO software, try using multiple free SEO tools and combining the reports for a final report. I use to do this when I first started out and you can still provide great SEO services.
