 FREE SEO Tools To Improve Your Online Marketing & Ranking

Search engine optimization or (SEO)  is paramount to getting traffic to your web page and getting a better ranking in organic search results whether for local seo or national.
Here is a look at a few top FREE SEO tools that will give your website the edge.

Google Webmaster Tools

I personally don't think there is anyone else better to improve your SEO than google. It has easy access to key metrics  it even has live support for newbies.The arsenal of tools includes 'Fetch as Goole', which allows you to view URL's in the same way as Google does. 

This is a very simple way to detect and troubleshoot poor Search Engine Optimization. You can then modify your page accordingly and even review code to make sure your site has not been hacked.

Google PageSpeed Insights (Free)

Page loading speed has become one of the most important features of any website.
Google PageSpeed Insights is a free tool that checks the speed of your site and gives suggestions to improve it. Load times are critical for the front end user experience, and the back end analytics that Google uses to rank your webpage.
Simply enter your site or blog’s URL, click the “analyze” button, and it will automatically check the speed and overall user experience of your site and provide a score.
Here’s how the scores rank:
A score of 90+ means that your site is FASTER than most other sites.
A score between 50-90 is considered AVERAGE.
A score below 50 means that your site is SLOW.
To increase your chances of ranking higher in the search results aim for a score of 90 plus. The tool checks the speed of your website on desktop and mobile. You will find out fast if your website is fast, average or slow and it also provides solutions to improve your page’s performance metrics.

Google’s search algorithm places a lot of priority on how mobile-friendly a site is.
The Mobile-Friendly Test tool is designed to help determine if your site is correctly optimized for smartphones and tablets.
You just type in your site’s URL and a few seconds later  you will see whether your website is mobile-friendly.
The tool also offers suggestions on how you can improve any issues with your website
The Page Loading Info feature lets you know if Google can properly access all the resources on a particular page and what to do if it can’t.
