5 Free SEO Tools
In this article, I will share 5 FREE tools which can be used for improving the SEO of your website or blog.
As it is evident search engine optimization is a very much required technique in the world of digital marketing if you are aiming at organic traffic.
We usually require analytics and research tools for optimizing our content, but more often these tools and services are subscription based and if you are aware that paid versions of most of the tools are not quite friendly on the pocket.
You would require free tools to avoid running out of budget and here are 5 such tools which are popular and most often used by amateur digital marketers.
Wordstream : It is a popular keyword research tool, which returns PPC based keywords for Google and Bing search engines. It returns semantic keywords which saves a lot of effort checking for combination of keywords based on the topic. It has an export feature where you can email the list to your email ID. Though this feature is free, you may be able to perform the action up to 10 times in a day. The option for searching location based keywords assists in targeting your audience.

against 10 keywords which could be long tail keywords or short ones. This tool can help you find, how your content is performing for different keywords
and to analyse your strategy, if it is working right.
