  1. Great List.

    Free keyword tools are a great start for new sites.

    However, once your site is established it’s wise to use your own server logs to gain the most reliable keyword research, which is derived from “real” traffic and “actual” keywords that trigger specific actions on your own website.

  2. Hello,

    this is a great list of tools. Please try and evaluate this tool and provide feedback:


  3. Thanks Ryan,

    I’ll have to check those out. Look forward to hearing from you again.

    In the social media space, Radian 6 at the high end of white label monitoring tools is getting hot and at a smaller price point for small businesses is Techrigy, which offers freemium services (in other words a free trial as well as webinars explaining the business case behind social media monitoring)

    Take care,

  4. The other thing is that I have little faith in Compete. I’ve actually purchased their $500 report and was pretty disappointed with how inaccurate the data was. In general, I would use as nothing more than just “another data point” – don’t make any major decisions or anything.


  5. Great point Ryan. I generally prefer the free tools and the tools under $100 per month.

    The free web traffic comparison tool that Compete offers is nice for a 60 second overview of a website in a given market ecosystem, which helps you with your search engine optimization and link building.

  6. Great List. This tool help you evaluate the importance of a URL as perceived by Yahoo and Google. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Nice post and list of tools. We’ve used most all of the tools you mentioned and have found many of them to be pretty useful. Appreciate you sharing them. SEOmoz’s LinkScape tool is nice, can think of many potential uses for that one in particular. Thought perhaps your readers would be interested in checking out the website analyzer tool we built for in-house use. It’s now offered for free on our company website. We appreciate and encourage feedback so any suggestions are welcomed.

    We also have a few other free tools on our “Tools” (/tools/) page.

  8. Some great tools. I do find that some of the free tool can be limiting, but I guess if you use a handful of them together you can get some uselful info from them which will help you with your SEO efforts.

  9. If interested, there are more free online webmaster tools to try. Visit

  10. Nice post! but you fogot about mazecore –

  11. Fantastic post,
    thanks for providing such a wonderful list of tools,these are really resourceful for me.
    I have gone through the post and i really enjoyed reading it and the discussions above.
    Very informative

  12. Nathan Ketsdever

    This is a newer tool that sorts keywords by topic/subject. However, it doesn’t give actually traffic numbers (only bar graph approximations):

  13. There are two newer paid tools, which are available on a subscription basis:
    SEO Samba and

    I believe the later, is the less expensive of the two.

  14. Excellent post

    You may want to add this one too >
