Free Online SEO Tools

February 12th, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

For anyone wanting to do a bit of their own Search Engine
Optimisation, there is an abundance of free online SEO tools
available on the internet. Most of them provide some pretty
impressive statistics and information to help you optimise your
website, analyse search engine positions, research your
competitors, plus much more!

There are two ways these free online SEO tools can be used: (1)
For those who are new to the area of search engine optimisation,
these tools provide excellent insight on how a website is
performing and ranking. They can quickly highlight issues and
trends with their current website and provide a good insight as
to where optimisation work is necessary. (2) For the more
experienced search engine optimisers amongst us, these tools
will act as a complement to the more specialised SEO tools, like
WebPosition Gold or SpyderOpts. They can even be used to
supplement an SEO’s internal knowledge base and experience.

Here is a selection of some choice tools for both the novice and
the experienced search engine optimisers:

Keyword Research Tool
This helps to research appropriate words and phrases to include
in your webpage’s body text to aid promotion. It’s simple and to
use and requires the user to enter the sort of word of phrase
you wish to be found under, the tool will then suggest some
additional words and phrases you can think about using. One of
the great things about this tool is that it gives you the option
to select from a range of top search engines, e.g. Google,
Yahoo, MSN, Teoma, etc.

Keyword Analyser Tool
This tool reads the body of the page you specify and gives a
report on what words are used, and how many times they are used.
This is a valuable tool as most engines will rank your site
depending on your keyword density (which typically ranges
between 3% and 9%).

Search Engine Position Checker Tool
html This tool checks whether your website appears in the first
fifty results in major search engines for your chosen keyword or
phrase. If the URL is present, it will output what position it
occupies. As an additional feature, the tool also informs you if
any other URLs from your domain appear in the search results.

Link Popularity Tool
http://www.instantposition.com/link_popularity_check.cfm This
tool measures the total number of links or “votes” that a search
engine has found for your website. This is a pretty cool tool
because as well as tabulated data it also produces a nice graph
of the resulting data. One final key element of this tool is its
ability to compare your website to your competitors to help you
with your overall marketing strategy.

Meta Tag Generator
http://www.webmaster-toolkit.com/meta-tag-generator.shtml This
automatically generates a Meta Keyword tag by reading the page
you specify, removing common words from it, and picking the most
used words on the page. Extra weight is given to words in a
heading tag

Search Term Suggestion Tool
Displays how many times a certain keyword was searched for at
Overture.com. Shows all related searches for the entered
keyword. A good measure to use in determining frequency of
search among related keyword phrases

Search Engine Optimisation Tool
http://www.instantposition.com/seo_doctor.cfm. A very impressive
tool that tests the performance of a web site, by analysing a
page on the important elements of web page creation, such as its
title and content. It then scores the page against given
criteria for the top search engines, followed by some valuable
SEO advice to improve overall ranking. The report produced is
well laid out and easy to follow for anyone doing their own
optimisation. A freebie tool that works better than many costly
SEO tools I know!

The area of online SEO tools is an exciting area of growth as
SEO developers come up with more and more tools to represent
website positions on the internet. No doubt we will be
revisiting this area again….

    What is the best free online tool to track flight prices?
    I would like to find a free online tool/website where I can enter my departure, destination and desired dates, and that would automatically email me as soon as the price of that flight dropped for that route on any airline.
    Many thanks!
    Please note: I am based in the UK, so Farecompare and similar will not work. Also, I have specific dates that I can fly on that I want to track prices for. Many thanks!

    I think that travelocity, expedia, and orbitz all have the capability to do this function. You have to create an account and put in your desired price when they will email you. I have never heard about a site that will also take into account your actual departure dates.

    Most airlines offer that service through their website. You’d have to "subscribe" to each airline individually for the routes you desire, but it’s not that tough.

    Most people only have one to four routes they are interested in flying anyway, so it’s no big deal. I regularly get updates from American, United, and Southwest.
