    Hello, I hope everyone has a great day!

    I am new to SEO, and I was wonder – what tool should I use if I want to rank my blog better?

    I mainly looking for a tool for :
    A. Keywords volume (accurate, preferable more accurate than google keyword planner)
    .B. keywords Competition – determine the competition of a keyword
    C. Spy on competitors – What keywords they use, how much and where do they get the backlinks from.
    D. Tracking keywords ranking and backlink

    The only problem is that most of the tool I found is really expensive ( 99$ or more), And I am not a marketing company I just have a small blog I want to rank for.

    I’m looking for free SEO tools or at least much cheaper, I don’t mind about combine a couple of tools.
    For now the chepeast I found is Ubersuggest and kwfinder…

    Do you have any recommendations? Can you share more what else I might need to rank my site better no just from what I mentioned above?

    PS. I was wonder, the competition in google keyword planner is for PPC ? (I am referring to the Low, Medium High metric they put out there).

    Thank you, people! I appreciate anyone considers helping me.


    You should sign up for Google Analytics and Google Search Console to start. Those are free and it gives you data you can analyze about your website. 2 Free tools you could check out are Ubersuggest by Neil patel (even though he gets a bad rep) and ‘s free keyword research tool (only US national data). If you have iPhone, SEOEdge is a keyword tracker for websites (It’s $12/year).


    I was going to suggest ahrefs like I always do until I read its costly for you. I can understand.

    As you need for keyword research, competitor research and keywords tracking, there are no free tool that can provide you all this things out there.

    I suggest you to use Mangool tools who gives kwfinder and other tools at budget price. I have used them when I was starting out and they are best at lower price end compared to others.


    If using WordPress Yoast will help greatly!


    Ubbersuggest is a good free keyword research tool. It does have daily limits but if you have multiple gmails you will be fine.


    This blog isn’t mine, but it outranked neil patel on a few guides. I use his methods for my clients blog.

    Each blog reaches you how to improve a blog. It’s possibly the best non-major blog on blogs, and it’s written and fun to read.

    There’s a few tools mentioned, but for a beginner I would say check it out.

    Let me know if it helped.


    – Ubersuggest for free keyword ands competitor research
    – Keywordshitter for free keyword suggestions
    – Google suite for analytics and tracking
    – Google sheets


    I love using Google analytics, search console, Moz, and Yoast or All in One SEO if you’re on WordPress!


    A free SEMrush account can do all those things, but has its limitations.


    Does anyone here use SE Ranking? It’s on the lower end of the pricing scale but still seems to offer a lot of tools 🤷‍♂️


    I’ve tried both Ahrefs and SEMrush, and for me SEMrush is the superior tool. The SEO agency that I work with has been using it for 4 years now, and we’re completely satisfied with the features. They’ve got a FREE 7-day trial, unlike Ahrefs trial which is $7.


    Use Uber suggest, although it’s not free however you can do a lot in free. Also, use kw planner.
