I wanted to write a quick article sharing my favourite SEO tools. These tools help a lot in the SEO workflow, research and analysis on my daily basis.

It is amazing how choosing the right tools can really make the different when it comes to get a right SEO service done properly.

OK, without any particular order, here we go!

The nice thing is that they use their own bot which gathers information of a trillion websites, which provides with information that sometimes Google itself doesn’t show.

SEOQUAKE

seoquakeIt is a free plugin for Google Chrome that provides you with crucial SEO metrics for a specific page, along with other useful tools such as SEO Audit, which provides of an excellent Keyword density onPage report. I love to use it to find out how hard is ranking for a specific keyword, and how strong are the competitors when I do Local SEO.
