The Best Free SEO Tools & Internet Marketing Software

The Best Free SEO Tools & Internet Marketing Software

best free SEO tools & softwareA lot of SEO tools & internet marketing software can be quite expensive if you’re just starting out.

But if you’re ultra-resourceful then you can take advantage of the best free SEO tools and trials that are available.

You can get everything from free email marketing services all the way through to free SEO software.

So I’ve decided to compile a list of all of the best free SEO tools and software in one place for your convenience!

Getting The Most Out Of Free SEO Tools & Software

If you are considering taking out any of the free SEO software below then you’ll want to make sure you squeeze the most out of the trial as possible.

So before you start any trial, take time to familiarise yourself with the service/software via tutorials on YouTube or from forum discussions etc.

If it is a link building software trial for example you should watch tutorials so you know how to use it before you start the trial.

You should also plan out your campaign and prepare all of the content you will need so you can make sure 100% of the trial period is spent building links and not figuring things out.

The Best Free SEO Tools & Software

I have highlighted all of the best SEO tools and trials at the top of this list.

I have also split them all into different categories to help you find what you need quickly.

My Personal Favourites

Using the free SEO tools & software below you can setup, track and monitor a tiered link building campaign.

SEOMoz (Full 30 Day Trial) – SEOMoz is one of the best SEO tools to monitor your site and link building campaigns. It does it all from rank tracking to on page recommendations and you can even use it to download all of your competitors backlinks! Check out my SEO Moz review.

SENuke XCR (Full 14 Day Trial) – SENuke XCR is a very diverse link building tool and is great for creating tier 1 links. It is quite expensive on a monthly basis though but the full 14 day free trial is great. Check out my SENuke XCR review.

GSA Search Engine Ranker (Full 5 Day Trial) – This has quickly become the swiss army knife of link building targeting over 120 platforms at the time of writing. Perfect for automating your tier 2 and 3 links! See it in action here.

Kontent Machine (Full 7 Day Trial) – The best content generator I have ever used. Generate and export content for your tier 2 and 3 campaigns in just a couple of clicks. Read my full review here.

SEO Powersuite (Free Version) – Get free versions of RankTracker, Website Auditor, SEO Spyglass and Link Assistant. Each tool is an industry leader in its own right and I have relied on this suite of tools for years. Check out my full review.

Content Creation

TheBestSpinner (Full 7 Day Trial / $7) – It really is the best spinner and I have used it personally for the past few years on a nearly daily basis. The API is used in a lot of other link building tools. Check out my advanced spinning tutorial to see it in action.

Spinner Chief (Free Version) – A close rival to TheBestSpinner but it feels clunky in comparison. Either way they have a completely free version of the software for you to enjoy!

WordAI (3 Day Trial) – These guys are the new kids on the block but claim to be able to automatically spin content without making it sound like garbage. Big claims but the trial is worth it!

Kontent Machine (Full 7 Day Trial) – The best content generator I have ever used. Generate and export content for your tier 2 and 3 campaigns in just a couple of clicks. Read my full review here.

Email Marketing

Aweber (Full 30 Day Trial / $1) – I use Aweber right here on this blog and have done so for the past few years across all of my sites. It takes the pain out of email marketing and makes staying in touch with you guys easy!

GetResponse (Full 30 Day Trial) – The rival of Aweber, GetResponse offers a similar feature set. It really is just a matter of personal preference between the two of them!

Hosting

Dreamhost (Full 14 Day Trial) – If you need hosting quickly then you can take out the 14 day trial at Dreamhost. They offer unlimited plans from $8.95 a month if you stick with them and they were my first webhost when I became a full time internet marketer.

Keyword Research

Market Samurai (Full 14 Day Trial) – The keyword research and SEO competition modules of Market Samurai are some of the best in the business and this is solely what I use the software for.

Keyword Researcher (Free Trial) – This is great for generating keyword ideas and is fantastic for coming up with Google Alerts to monitor. It doesn’t pull in any search volume numbers though.

Link Building

Article Kevo (Full 7 Day Trial) – A relatively new kid on the block Article Kevo can now submit to a wide range of platforms including article directories, web 2.0 platforms, social bookmarks, wikis, social networks and forums!

GSA Search Engine Ranker (Full 5 Day Trial) – This has quickly become the Swiss army knife of link building targeting over 120 platforms at the time of writing. Perfect for automating your tier 2 and 3 links! See it in action here.

Inspyder Backlink Monitor (Free Version) – The ultimate tool for monitoring your backlinks. Very easy to use and will automatically sort out all of your tiers for you. Check out my full review.

Link Wheel Bandit (Full 7 Day Trial) – Great tool for powering up your tier 2 links even further. Not sure why it’s called Link Wheel Bandit though as it doesn’t actually build Link Wheels, it builds Link Pyramids/Tiers. This is covered in this tutorial.

Link Assistant (Free Version) – This is part of the SEO Powersuite set of tools and is great for prospecting link partners. However I have hacked it a bit and use it to manage and automate guest posting.

Magic Submitter (Full 30 Day Trial / $4.95) – This is really the main rival to SENuke XCR and offers very similar features. It can post everything from videos to press releases and is very diverse. However the user interface is a bit tricky to get to grips with at first.

NoHandsSEO (Full 7 Day Trial) – This provides a completely automated and hands off solution to build an endless supply of links. Very easy to use and setup and supports a few different platforms.

SENuke XCR (Full 14 Day Trial) – SENuke XCR is a very diverse link building tool and is great for creating tier 1 links. It is quite expensive on a monthly basis though but the full 14 day free trial is great. Check out my SENuke XCR review.

SEO SpyGlass (Free Version) – Use this to discover your competitors backlinks and breakdown key metrics such as anchor text usage. You can also use it to monitor your own sites backlink profile.

Sick Submitter (Full 3 Day Trial) – Like SENuke XCR & Magic Submitter this is a really diverse tool that can post to a huge range of platforms which is backed up by the user forums offering scripts to post to even more sites and platforms!

SliQ Submitter (100 Submission Limit) – One of my favourite directory submitters before I replaced it with Ultimate Demon. Really easy to use and can grab you some links from high quality directories.

On Site SEO

SEOMoz (Full 30 Day Trial) – With weekly scans of your site the SEOMoz dashboard quickly identifies any on site SEO issues and advises you on how to correct them.

Website Auditor (Free Version) – Part of SEO Powersuite, you can use Website Auditor to spider your site and report any issues it finds.

Microsoft SEO Toolkit (Free) – Finally Microsoft have made a useful product! The SEO Toolkit will spider your site and report back on any issues.

Rank Tracking

Rank Tracker (Free Version) – Part of SEO Powersuite this is the best rank tracking solution period. Unlike web based services this desktop application means you own the data and you can track an unlimited amount of keywords as well as your competitors.

SEOMoz (Full 30 Day Trial) – The SEOMoz service provides weekly ranking updates and tracks your progress over time. You can also use it to monitor your competitors and benchmark your site against them.

SEO Multi Tools

These tools have a wide range of functions and don’t really fit in one category.

Market Samurai (Full 14 Day Trial) – My tool of choice for keyword and competition research but it also includes a rank tracker, domain finder, content finder, content publishing and link finder.

SEO Powersuite (Free Version) – Get free versions of RankTracker, Website Auditor, SEO Spyglass and Link Assistant. Each tool is an industry leader in its own right and I have relied on this suite of tools for years. Check out my full review.

SEOMoz (Full 30 Day Trial) – The SEOMoz team provide a range of fantastic tools to monitor your site and link building campaigns. It does it all from rank tracking to on page recommendations and you can even use it to download all of your competitors backlinks!

Internet Business Promoter (Free Version) – A fantastic piece of software that offers a range of functions such as keyword suggestions, link building and rank tracking. The best feature though is the top 10 optimiser that will look at the on page of the current top 10 results and tell you what you need to change on your site to reflect that.

Social Media

BuzzBundle (Free Version) – Made by the same team behind SEO Powersuite, BuzzBundle makes it easier to identify & engage with your target audience online. I have grown traffic to this blog by manually doing a lot of what BuzzBundle can help to automate – read my full review here.

HootSuite (Free Version) – This is my preferred tool for managing Twitter, Facebook and Google+. You can monitor a number of search terms as well as schedule updates to go out.

SynnD (Free Version) – If you need a steady drip feed of tweets, likes, +1, social bookmarks and up votes on sites like Reddit then SynnD is for you!

TweetDeck (Free Version) – Now owned by Twitter this is a great desktop client to manage your Twitter account.

WordPress

WPRobot (Free Version) – This is widely regarded as the best auto blogging solution for WordPress. It can pull content from a ridiculous number of sources and when setup correctly can produce some high quality auto blogs. Perfect for tier 1 links ;)

Hey Matthew!
Love your blog, it gives great information!
But how does WPRobot is perfect for tier 1 links? I saw in your multi-tier guide that tier 1 should only have quality content, and with WPRobot I never managed to make the articles with good quality. not to mention it automatically spins the scraped content.
Please give me a heads-up, Thanks!

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi,

Thanks very much.

Well perhaps perfect is the wrong word but you can use it to create reasonable quality sites that are constantly getting new content. A lot of people go overboard with WP Robot but keep it simple and it can be used on an aged domain as a tiered link safely – worst case scenario you just login and remove links ^^

Hey Matt you really think Spinnerchief is clunky in comparison to TBS? I've read on BHW that allot tend to give more credit to Spinnerchief for its updates and features.. I've been wanting to ask you about this since I found out about Spinnerchief. I haven't made up my mind on which one to get yet because of this. A post on this would be awesome.. I'm sure other BHer's would enjoy that also.

Hi,

Yes I just didn't like the general look/feel/usability of it – for the most part its personal preference but I've been a TBS user since it launched :)

Hello Matt! Your list includes lots of valuable tools. There's hardly a SEO tool you missed!
I'd like to show you one more app, that can be very useful for competition research, link prospecting and complex SERP analysis. The tool is called KeySR, you probably haven't heard of it yet, since it's been launched very recently. In order to see how it works, here's a report I generated using it: http://www.keywordsearchrankings.com/keywordreport/car-rentals-dollar.com-SERP-Position-Report-3308c9ca1b.

Hello, Matt! You have done very nice job here. You've generally selected the best tools. Also I liked the way you divided these tools in their appropriate categories. I would like to suggest you one seo tool that can be placed in SEO Multi Tools category that I have been recently found about and that is http://tutor.rs. This tool has it's free version that is great, because besides generating seo reports you can also download.pdf reports and you can view site statistics (improvements) over the time.

Hi,

Thanks for your kind words :)

I checked it out but I can't seem to find what you actually get with the Free Version? Any ideas?

I'd also add SpinReWriter 3 since it has a free 5-day trial. I prefer it to TBS now.

You said that it is important to be able to remove tier 1 link. But can’t we just use the google disavow tool to remove those that we don’t want?

Reply

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Hi,

It is always better to remove the actual link, better to remove the gun from your head entirely than still have it pointing at you with the safety on.

Have a read of http://www.matthewwoodward.co.uk/tips/why-google-disavow-is-bad-news-for-seo/

Daniel Warren Reply:

Love your answer to this question Mathew! And lol Logic demands everyone should agree. I have spent the day going through your entire tutorial series, will be doing it again tomorrow as well, one question that comes to mind automatically is would you consider Press Releases individually created and posted on Google news as good tier 1 links?
Ps. I also posted your links in a few groups I am a member of, very impressive and helpful info I will be returning to your site often I believe. Thanks for the great info.

Jimmy and Matt,
With SiteExplorer.info in the recent comment, do you have any comparison of its “rank” algorithm with the Citation Flow/Trust Flow of Majestic SEO or the URL Rank/Domain Rank found in AHREFS.com?

Also, is there discuss of how these ranking algorithms compare to the SEOMoz authority score?

Many thanks for your ideas on which are better to use or any combination of them!

Another awesome post, Matt. Thank you.

If I was to make a video tutorial like those you make in this blog, I would make an example campaign where I prepared all the content, used the seo tools for submission and used the tracking software for monitoring the effects of the campaign in the search engines. If I… well. Maybe a blueprint would do the trick as well. Would you publish such a blue print on your site, if *somebody* made it?

Another tutorial I would like to see would be a “online marketing for Mac-users”. I know that it would be easier to just install Parallels or some windows software on a Mac and just get over it and on with my campaigns. However, I have talked to some fellow marketers who, like me, hate working with Windows os. Would you be willing to make such a curated post on sep tools for mac-fanboys? Would any of you, my fellow readers of this awesome up-and-coming seo blog, like to see Matthew make a tutorial like this as well?

Best regards

jacob Suhr Reply:

By the “make an example campaign” I meant an example campaign on a shoe string. And the blueprint would be more of a time schedule where I showed day-by-day when to active the trials on which tools to get the maximum out of them. Hope that made a little more sense. I realised that the Ultimate Guide to Tiered Backlinking shows an example campaign. But the On-A-Shoestring-campaign would be great ;o)

Sounds good to me – kind of ‘what you need to get started’ type thing and the day to day backend management of it all?

If someone made that though I wouldn’t publish it here because if someones going to go to that effort to create content, its better off on their own site.

A Mac post has been requested a couple of times and in my post ideas notebook so expect that at some point :)

Unfortunately I have little to no experience in this respect so any advice would just be educated guesses at best.

From what I understand english content/sites for the backlinks are fine for ranking german sites however I would expect that to change in the future as Google develops.

Hopefully someone with more experience can jump in and provide some advice

Hi Matthew Woodward,
I love this post. Thanks for your writing. I am a blogger and I always want to have good traffic for my blog. After reading your writing today, I realize that I will have to change some points for my blog in order not to create an attractive niche. I hope that after I created my onw niche, more readers will join it.

Hey Matthew, great list here! I have a very noobish question that i’m hoping you might answer. I’m in the very early planning stage to starting out in IM and i’m wondering where these tools should be installed. If i’m using a hosting company, can i install the tools directly to that server and work off of it via remote desktop?

You can use a windows based VPS which you remote into or just your local windows machine

Hi Matthew

I love your blog and have watched and watched and …. all the videos . (its driving my wife crazy lol) and now I’m in information overload. I probably suffer from analysis paralysis. I’m confused and keep jumping from one thing to another without actually accomplishing anything concrete. So I thought I would ask here Do you need all the tools in this list? or could you give me a list of what I need in my toolbox for maximum results. Thanks in advance

Great selection of sites Matthew. Working my way through the list.

Just out of interest do you know why the demo version of kontent machine is no longer available as i’m at that point in the tiered link building tutorial

Do you have any suggestions for alternatives?

Thanks

So this is your definition of free? Most of these aren’t free at all – just free trials. I’m really surprised no one else took you to task on this. In fact, there are a lot of very good and genuinely free tools out there and almost none of them are mentioned here.

Did you see the big section about how to squeeze as much as possible out of free trials?

Eg. if you have an onsite penalty, take the Moz trial to crawl your site and help find the problem. There is no comparable free tool for that. Thats a premium solution 100% free of charge.

I have a little query please suggest me SEO tool that full fill my demand.
I want a SEO tools that tell me which niche is popular in which country. For example i put query in SEO tool “Call of Duty” then SEO tool tell me in which country this game is famous most according to descending order and how many monthly searches for particular game. Right now i use Google Trend.

Hey Matthew,

I’ve only recently starting following you – this is a really awesome list you have put together. Would you say these are for churn and burn sites only, or when used carefully, can they be utilized for a long term SEO campaign?

Matthew Woodward Reply:

Depends on which tool, how you use it and the goals of your campaign.
