What's a Good, Free SEO Search Tool?

Discussion in 'Search Engine Optimization' started by Noitartst, Jul 1, 2022.

    Per others, I thought Moz would be a useful free tool, but if I only get ten free queries a month, I don't see how, and you never told me this. I first thought it was a height of ten queries a day, but ten a month? That's unworkable; I'm trying to enter into a groove, and start experimenting, but this is a disruption, as you can imagine.

    What can I realistically expect, from free SEO search tools? It seems most aren't good at even allowing me to practice, and it seems search tools which won't let me use them daily are next to useless. As for budgeting, I can pay $20 a year easy for a search tool, but some of these suckers demand $100 or more a month.

    Why are you not trying "Google Webmaster tools" ... as you know also that its completely free and you can get report of each query for which your site is rocking ..... You can see also that on which keywords you need some works.

    Google webmasters tool is great for your own sites, if you need a free tool like moz, there's https://neilpatel.com/ubersuggest/
    you can use it to check the keywords of your competitors.

    Hm, so those sites work for SEO keyword research? How come they aren't as discussed? Also, more to the point, how east are they to practice on? If I can't practice, how can I hope to even learn?

    And also, for Ubersuggest and Google Webmaster Tools, what specific parts of their sites do I use specifically for keyword research? I was just starting to get used to using certain areas of Moz, well, one, and then it told me I could only query ten times a month.

    Hm...when seeking out "Google Webmaster tools" I found this. Trouble is, I see no search engine on the site for keyword research. As for Ubersuggest, how exactly ought I use it? Found some Youtube tutorials, but I'm still looking 'round for advice.

    Any Ideas on Ubersuggest? Does it have any unpalatable query limitations like with Moz?

    Hm. if I bought the $29 Ubersuggest plan, would it work as well (or well enough) as the $99 Moz plan?

    As others suggested, Google webmaster tools is enlightening. Are you thinking about starting a paid service now?

    A tip:

    Put these words into your favorite non-Google search engine:

    alternative to google webmaster

    Good luck.

    I looked on Ubersuggest, to build the first post for starting a foreign policy blog. According to Ubersuggest, the volume's zilch, and difficulty's 12. That's too low, is it not?

    And no, I'm not running a paid service. I want an audience, before I sell anything. Is Google webmaster tools basically just a lot of solid info? That it?

    It's data (and not information) about your specific site, what you do with it is up to you.

    Hm. So I can use "Google Webmaster Tools" to test keywords for search volume, and keyword difficulty like Ubersuggest? If so, very good.

    How did you make that leap?

    Just log in, verify your site and see the data. It's free and takes 10 minutes.

    I'm just guessing; I'm very much stabbing in the bark, and am all too willing to admit this. Is my leap right? I done don't know!

    Well, I do believe I spent over twenty, and I wasn't even sure I found the correct link. Call me a hack cluttz, but that is what I found. My Google options in the right hand corner don't offer any analytics. You got a better suggestion, tell me,and more important gimme me better directions to the tool.

    Look at things like this - mobile experience is 100% but desktop is 0%?!! That tells me that I have work to do on this site. Core Web Vitals - desktop has no data, wtf, that doesn't look good, I have work to do. Mobile usability - is 10 good? I better find out. This site is important and I've neglected it, and Google is showing me what happens when you do that!!!

    This stuff isn't rocket science, get the data, turn that into information or actions or tasks or whatever and get the work done.

    Thank you, Sarahk. Do you have a link or directions as to how I can reach the directions you've described? (Through Google, I would presume?)

    "Add property," it says. by that, what does that mean? Insert my blog domain's name? Okay. Let the record show I did that. I inserted wordpress.com/home/stormhawksociety.wordpress.com (sans the https) and nothin' happened, maybe because I haven't fully activated my blog, but as I keep saying, I DO NOT have a reliable search tool to use, and I keep trying to find one.

    What is your mentor teaching you?
    Your domain is hxxps://stormhawksociety.wordpress.com/
    and as I, and everyone else keep saying, you have to pay for some of these services. We all like free but why should people give you free labour?
