5 Free Must Have SEO Tools

Unless you go the PPC route and pay for your traffic, SEO or Search Engine Optimization will play a major role in the success or failure of your website. Therefore, it’s in your best interest as a webmaster to learn everything you can about SEO and use the right SEO tools to achieve an advantage over your competition.

Needless to say, SEO or getting high rankings for your keywords is extremely competitive, especially for popular lucrative keyword phrases which bring in the big bucks. You must be at the top of your game if you want to compete.

One important factor in winning the SEO battle is using the right SEO software or tools. Major online companies use expensive software, hire SEO firms and have whole departments devoted entirely to search engine marketing – so you know your work is cut out for you.

You’re probably asking yourself how can the little guy compete against such stiff competition? Well, it is not as difficult as you might think or believe. For starters, you can use some simple SEO tools which will help give you a slight advantage if you use them properly.

Surprisingly, all of these SEO tools are free and any webmaster can take advantage of them in their ongoing SEO endeavors. I believe all webmasters must learn and master SEO in order to succeed online or get someone else to do it for them.

Over the years I have built up a passable knowledge of SEO due mainly from running 9 or 10 sites and working as a full-time online affiliate marketer. My livelihood depends on me achieving high rankings for my lucrative keywords in the search engines, mainly in Google. Also the daily running of two websites on Internet Marketing Tools has played a small part as well!

Along the way I have used countless SEO tactics and tools to try to increase my keyword rankings. Here’s a short list of my most helpful Free SEO tools that I use on a daily basis in the running of my websites:

1. SEO Book Keyword Research Tool
