Neil Patel from

Neil Pate is one of the most famous SEO Experts. He is earning millions of dollars per month from his hard work.

Neil Patel uses many tools for SEO but his best and loved SEO Tools are as below.

Neil was unable to state the reason why he loves below tools so I am just guessing why he uses these SEO Tools.

  • Majestic SEO: He may be using it for competitive research and link analysis.
  • Scrapebox: This tools has a great number of features which include many advance features it may be the reason why Neil uses this tool.
  • Open Site Explorer is a perfect tool for finding the number of links and sites which are linking to a certain URL of any webpage, Neil may use this tool to find the number of links to his pages.
  • Google Analytics is the best SEO Tools and the best thing is we can find everything about our site for example, number of visitors, sessions, source of visitors and so on.
  • Ahrefs is the one of the best SEO tools when it comes to SEO and content marketting.

Rand Fishkin from Moz

Rand Fishkin is a top content writer at Moz he writes best articles on SEO.

Rand did’t state why he loves the tools so I have give my own suggestion.

  • Moz: Rand works at Moz therefore he also loves the tools of Moz.
  • Buzzsumo is a perfect tool for finding the top shared contents of any site and find who shares them. Rand may be using it to find who share his contents on social media which he creates on Moz.

Marcus Miller from Bowler Hat and Search Engine Land

Marcus Miller is an experienced SEO and PPC consultant based in Birmingham, UK. His loved topics are SEO (Local and Technical), and PPC etc.

When I asked Marcus for his loved tools he happily replied and told be below SEO Tools.

There are so many tools out there that it can be bewildering and in some cases, tools can prevent often hinder rather than help. That said the following are pretty much a part of my daily toolbox.

  • Google: seems a bit too obvious right? Google though as a range of advanced search operators and how better to find pages that Google likes than to Google them?
  • Google Search Console: another Google tool but an absolutely critical one. SEO is something of a black box activity and we don’t know how the search engine truly ranks sites yet Search Console gives us real diagnostic information from the engine. Super useful.
  • Screaming Frog: the SEO Swiss army knife and nothing is better to help get a big picture view of a site and understand crawl and technical issues.
  • Majestic SEO: the best link index in my humble opinion (although ahrefs is also awesome). Getting a handle on the links pointing to a site and competitors is important and Majestic will help you do that.
  • Moz tools have always been useful for tracking and monitoring sites and provide another window into your site and the signals surrounding that which help you rank in Google search. The renewed focus on SEO as well should mean that we see some good advancements here.

As some honorable mentions, SEMRush is cool as is Ubersuggest for keyword research.

Casandra Campbell from

  • Ahrefs: I use Ahref’s Site Explorer tool to see what keywords my competitors or similar websites are ranking for and get ideas for keywords I can target.
  • Keyword Planner: I use Keyword Planner to check search volume for keyword ideas and get more keyword ideas. I use the search volume to prioritize which keywords to target next. Keywords with a higher search volume will get targeted sooner because they present a bigger opportunity.
  • SERPs: Once I’ve prioritized keywords based on search volume, I use the search engine results pages (SERPs) to see what content is already ranking and better understand what the searcher is trying to accomplish. If I’m confident I can compete with the content that is already ranking, I look for gaps I can cover in my content to make it better.
  • Buzzsumo: I also use Buzzsumo to look for content gaps and opportunities by looking at what has been popular on social media for a specific keyword.
  • Search Console: Finally, I use Search Console to see what keywords I didn’t know I’m ranking for. I look for keywords that I’m on pages 2-10 for in the SERPs and looks for ways to reoptimize my content to target those keywords better.

The tool also has a few new great features, one of which I love is Top Organic Pages. It lets you easily see what pages are driving the most traffic to a competitor’s website.
  • SEMRush: We use SEMRush primarily for competitive pay-per-click research and onsite SEO audits. The onsite SEO audits and suggestions SEMRush provides is very helpful when prioritizing action items to improve on your website.
  • Screaming frog Is still the best onsite SEO crawler out there. If you want an easy method of looking at the meta-data of a particular site or finding broken links and 404 errors, this is the tool to use. Search Console doesn’t always uncover the errors that this tool reveals. It’s very helpful for onsite SEO optimizations.
  • Siteliner: Is the tool we use to uncover duplicate content. In my opinion, the software isn’t user-friendly but we still find it very helpful for content optimizations.
  • Accuranker: Is the rank tracking tool we currently use for our agency. It provides keyword updates within a few seconds, it’s easy to use and priced very competitively. We also like Agency Analytics and their rank tracking as well.

Umar Farooq from

Umar is a funny but hard working man. He loves videos and house of videos I mean YouTube. His blog Easy As Fart is for guides like SEO, Blogging, YouTube and Fiverr etc.

Favorite SEO Tools of Umar Farooq are as follow;

I’ve used their tools multiple times in the past and will be using in the future as well. They almost provide all the features for FREE that we see people using in PAID tools. Although their tools come with limitations of some sort, but still, I’d recommend this website to people who don’t wanna break their bank, and still want something that’s “almost” premium.

Most of us aren’t using Keyword Planner anymore. Reason? Because they updated the look we were familiar with for a LONG time! We can’t really see “exact” numbers now of searches that are happening in Google for a specific term we enter in Keyword Planner. But still, wanna know why do I use it?

Well, I use Keyword Planner to find out LSI keywords. Yes, keywords that are relevant and Google gives us in suggestions when we’re doing Keyword Research. This is the reason I’m still using it and it works GREAT for what I use it for.

Keyword Planner didn’t show us Keyword Competitiveness anyways. So why everyone’s leaving it? It still doesn’t show competitiveness, but it does show the LSI keywords that are known for “main” ranking factor in SEO.

This isn’t really a “tool” that I use to improve my website’s SEO, but it is the one that helps me keep track of the SEO performance of my website. I visit it on monthly basis to see when Moz has updated its index of URLs. Because this is when we see updates on our PA (Page Authority) and DA (Domain Authority).

Another tool from Moz that I use to check PA and DA updates, mainly. API Updates is the place to see when they’ve updated their metrics, and Open Site Explorer is the tool to check how much improvement or decrease your website has got in PA and DA. They also state the backlinks coming to any site.

You can’t just EARN from YouTube, but you can also use it for SEO purposes.

You probably knew this already, didn’t you? But you didn’t know HOW to actually use it for SEO, right?

Yep, that’s what I’m going to teach you here.

You see, Google owns YouTube, and we wanna rank in Google, right?

Google also recommends us to use Videos in our articles, right?

So, what’s the BIGGEST platform on the web to upload or host your videos?

Aah, YouTube! 🙂

So, when you wanna rank well in Google, and Google owns YouTube, and Google tells us to add videos in our articles, and we add them and upload them on YouTube.


This is where the magic happens.

When we upload it on YouTube, put our LINK in the description of the video, embed the video on our website, it is giving Google a green signal that you should rank WELL in the search. At least in a better position you’re at right now.

So yeah, that’s how it all works, doing SEO of our blogs with YouTube.

Mukesh Bhardwaj from I Tech Hacks

Mukesh is an intelligent blogger and SEO Expert having years of experience, currently he is managing his own 3 blogs. He works day and night to provide good information about technology on their blogs. His Favorite SEO Tools as as below.

  • Google Keyword planner: This tool helps me a lot when it comes to writing an article that I have to rank in short time. Google keyword planner lets you pull monthly Google search query volume estimates for dozens of keywords in seconds. I can never understate the importance of knowing what people search for.
  • Grammarly: This one is seriously best SEO tool that I have been used since 3 months. Still confused about the difference between “there” and “their”? This tool helps me a lot to improve my reader’s readability and content quality. Any pro blogger knows that the key to online success is to write like a professional. When it comes to double checking your grammar, this free tool is the best for bloggers.
  • SEOprofiler: Keyword research can be a complicated process these days, requiring us to consider the context of our website and a range of competitor metrics such as backlinks, domain authority and page authority. How it helps me? This SEO tool helps me to find my competitors ranking and their DA and PA.
  • Smart Google Ninja Technique: This one is my favorite SEO technique to rank my latest blog posts. Sorry, i can’t reveal it here (after successful experiment it will be live). but in simple words, use your mind with like ninja warriors

Muhammad Ahmad from

  • LongTailPro is a perfect SEO tools for me. I integrate it with my free Moz account and uses it to analyze my competitors and their link easily. Not only this you can also find the Domain Authority, Page Authority and other things easily.
  • Google keyword planner: I think I don’t need to tell you why I or any other blogger uses Google Keywords Planner.
  • Moz is the best source of information about SEO and is also providing many useful SEO Tools for free. I love to use Moz for finding the DA and PA of my and other websites.
  • Yoast SEO plugin helps me to write SEO friendly blog posts easily and quickly. As you know it has many useful features which can be used for perfectly optimizing your page that’s why I love this tool.

Ben Wynkoop from

Ben is a SEO consultant from California. He provides services like link building, site’s optimization and other services of this kind. Ben’s Favorite SEO Tools as below;

  • SEMrush: At the moment, I am using SEMrush as for site audits, rank tracking (non-local clients) organic research to see discover what keywords that competitors and clients already rank for.
  • Majestic: Besides the fantastic name, I like Majestic to check backlinks. Both Majestic and ahrefs are currently the best tools to check backlinks since both have the largest indexes.
  • Ahrefs: Previously I primarily used ahrefs to check backlinks, in conjunction with Majestic, but ahrefs is looking very attractive at the moment as a multi-purpose tools since they have added many of the features offered by SEMrush. Start with ahrefs if you have a limited budget and are looking at SEMrush, Majestic, and ahrefs.
  • BuzzStream: BuzzStream is a game changer for facilitating your outreach efforts and will make a difference compared to using spreadsheets. Seriously consider BuzzStream if your strategy heavily involves outreach, whether it be for public relations, link building, or referral traffic.
  • Screaming Frog: Screaming Frog is the must for technical SEO and can be used to crawl in as many ways as Forrest Gump’s friend Bubba can prepare shrimp.

Jordan Kasteler from

Jordan has been in the field of SEO and Internet Marketing since 2001 so he has a working experience of 15 years.

Jordan has following SEO Tools;

  • SEMrush: For competitive intelligence, historical insight, keyword rankings of any site.
  • Majestic: For its comprehensive database and quality scoring capabilities.
  • Screaming Frog: For site crawl intelligence. There’s simply things you can catch with a live crawl that a tool (e.g. infinite loops) has a hard time providing.
    As a bonus, I love pairing Screaming Frog with URL Profiler for the ultimate 1-2-combo on all needed URL stats.
  • URL Profiler: For its ability to be a Swiss army knife by hooking into various APIs to populate data.
  • BuzzSumo: For the ability to see any site’s top performing content and top influencers who have shared that content.

Mohammad Abid from BiDNetwork

Many pople have a misconception about SEO Tools that, tools bring down the Quality of SEO performed (as difficult work is constantly superior to any robotization) and these tools may be against web index TOS as they send automatic queries.
So first I decided to clear on why I use SEO Tools,
I used SEO Tools to accelerate the SEO process, machines are better and quicker at gathering and handling data than we, peoples, so why not leave that for them? (Case: you can simply utilize Yahoo! to investigate your competitors’ links, then open every page and check its PR with Google toolbar and its backlinks with Yahoo. This will take you the entire day to keep running, with a decent backlink checker tool you’ll do that inside a couple of minutes).
So below are the list of Top 5 SEO Tools I personally used to perform SEO…

Ahrefs is one of the most intense suites of online networking and SEO tools that I’ve ever utilized. Ahrefs has such a large number of mind-blowing features that you can get lost and depend on basically gazing at your own links. Most SEO experts know it as a “backlink checker” that rivals Majestic tools with littler files like Moz and SEMRush. Yet, “backlink checker” horribly undersells Ahrefs as a marketing suite. And there are even more uncountable features of this tool, I will highly recommend this tool to anyone looking for the best backlink checker.

A significant TOOL for checking whether a site is up to scratch. Both (Ahrefs and MOZ) make a fundamentally the same as showing with regards to, demonstrating moment crucial SEO information about the site you’re as of now on. I use both in conjunction with each different as discover you show signs of improvement general feel for the site using both as they take a slightly different indicator.

You can use this tool even for a free of cost, but actually, you can just do a limited times research on keywords. WTT is a very amazing and helpful tool for on-page SEO and for keyword research purpose. The coolest feature of this tool is that you can even check a live SEO score of your content. If you’re looking for a keyword planner or a tool to analyze your live SEO score then WebTextTool is ideal for you.

LongTail Pro is basically a desktop application, and you’ve to install it on your device in order to use this tool. LogTail Pro is a paid SEO Tool (limited Trial for this tool is available), this tool was launched back in 2011 and now this keyword research tool is using by over 70,000 SEO Experts including me (P.S: I’m not an expert :D). This tool is simple for anybody to utilize and saves a huge amount of time with competitor analysis and keyword research.

This tool is one of the best (not at all) 😀 keyword research tool, and a good thing about this tool is that it’s totally free. This tool was launched by Google for advertisers to check competition on different keywords but it can also be used for Keyword research purpose. By using this tool you can easily check the volume of a keyword, keyword competition, Monthly average searches on any particular keyword and a suggested bid for advertisers.

  • Buffer: Social media is one of the strongest ways to reach your targeted audience. But that should be on proper timing. So the buffer is the right solution to automate your social shares.

Setting measurable goals and moving action items into an integrated CRM is a breeze, as is creating automatic forecasts based on current rankings, click-through curves, and average order values.
  • Google Search Console continues to be one of our absolute favorite places to explore and understand how Google perceives our website. We obsess over monitoring security issues, manual actions and crawl behavior, and utilize every available tool, including AMP, HREFLANG, and URL Parameter handling. We always have a tab open in our browser with Google Search Console.
  • Marin Software is an industry standard cross-publisher advertising solution that has taken at least 25% of the workload off our strategist’s plate. We use Marin to create and improve business rules for AdWords bid automation, draw insights from top-performing and low-performing areas, and really put performance attributes under the microscope. White-labeled reporting gives our clients a sense of confidence about the level of professionals they are working with, and the account strategists are the awesome second set of eyes for troubleshooting.
  • Moz offers a lightweight campaign management solution for SMB and local or regional clients. They save us and our clients a fortune in data aggregator costs and are in-tune with our business needs more than just keyword ranking obsessions. We use OpenSiteExplorer to help create a baseline using metrics we have grown to trust and rely on, which we feel closely emulate Google’s own PageRank and trust scoring criteria.
  • Google Analytics is free, which is the number one reason we love it. Second to the no-cost benefit, are the insights we garner after setting up Google Tag Manager and custom reporting, such as dynamic event tracking, which plays a major role in holistic attribution modeling. It’s great when you can tell a client where their traffic and sales came from, it’s even more exciting when you tell your client where their typical visitor first started their journey, what they clicked on, what was a waste of their time, and eventually how to streamline the conversion process by following experience in reverse.

  • SEMrush plays a critical role in uncovering aggregate keyword data across multiple competitors, where relevancy is more important than popularity when it comes to keyword rankings and conversion optimization. Likewise, AHREFS has been instrumental in uncovering intersecting link opportunities that drive traffic to competitors and not to our clients (yet), as well as finding those juice unlinked mentions to support link earning strategies.
