I remember making lots of error while writing my first blog six months back. I was using a theme which was not SEO friendly, I was ranking for some random keywords. I too started commenting in another blog with no idea how many backlinks I got for that particular article. I searched for many blogs and videos on how to overcome this, then I got to know about two tools one which was free and other being paid( SEMRUSH AND SEO ANALYZER).
Slowly, I started working on the site and optimized it to great extent.


Seo Analyzer is a free tool provided by Neil Patel, which helps a lot in analyzing the blog to a great extent. It will fetch you with all data regarding the site speed, page size, errors, warnings, whether your blog is mobile friendly or not, HTML errors, image load time and size and with many other features which you can improve to get a good SEO score for the blog.

Seoptimer is both a freemium tool which helps you in improving the SEO for your blog/website. It will give you an overview of your site SEO factors like the keyword your ranking, a number of backlinks your site has, keyword consistency, header tags, amount of content, if the URL your using is user-friendly or not.

I have upgraded the PRO version of SEOPTIMER, which helps me analyze and work on the background structure of my blog. With just $29 per month, you can use many features provided by SEOPTIMER. 

The second to SEO site checker which I will recommend is SEOTESTERONLINE as most of the site checker have same orbit different feature this tool comes with free and paid versions.

Seo site checkup has both free and premium options. You can join for 14 days free trial then upgrades it so that you can use more features of this tool. I don't know how accurate it is but if you fix the problems then it will surely help your site to get optimized.

A blog ranks on top with three main factors good quality content, killer keyword and high-quality backlinks.
When it comes to backlink it is highly important to understand what your competitors in the same niche are doing to built strong backlinks.
Neil Patel ( Seo expert and Digital marketing hero) said in one of his Interview that if you want to outrank your competitors than built more links than your competitors.

Here are some free backlink checker tools that can help you achieve it:

Seoquake is a  plugin which can be added to any browser(Chrome, Mozilla, or opera) which provides data about the search term, like the number of internal and backlinks the competitor for that keyword has.

Seoquake also tells about the keyword density, social shares and links that particular landing page competitor is using.


There is a bar below the landing page, which gives all details about Alexa ranking, Facebook shares and likes, links, difficulty score, google ranking, Domain authority, page authority and many other in-depth facts about that landing page.





BUZZSUMO

If you're looking to check your competitor's social shares, may be thinking whether how many shares did the landing page holders for a particular keyword have then just go to Buzzsumo, take the top three URL of that keyword and enter it on the site. Within a few seconds, you will have all the details about on the social shares the competitor's site are having, giving you an approximate idea on how to go with your article.

Buzzsumo has a lot of filters which you can use to analyze the competitor's site. The social share counts will be from Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, Pinterest, and many other social media platform. 

 Buzzsumo highlights about the referral domain which are linking to your competitor's sites, you can connect with most of them asking for backlinks and guest posts, which in turn will double your traffic.

Seoreviewstools not only point about the social shares and backlinks but also about the number of visitors per month, returning visitors, registered members for that URL. There are a lot of compatible features which you can help you learn more about this site to know more click here.



MOZ

When it comes to top-level competitor backlink survey,  I will highly recommend you to use this freemium tool. You can give it a try for the 30-day free trial and if you want to use it after trial then I recommend you to take the PRO version of Moz. I repeat this is for both beginner and experts bloggers, it will take time to understand the algorithm for this tool but gradually you will get to know how powerful this keyword research tool can prove for your blog. 

Coming back to backlinks, you have to navigate to Link explorer, then take the competitor keyword and place in the tab as shown. Now you will get a long list of results about the competitor backlinks from different authority pages. Click on the inbound link option to know the analytical score of the Domain authority, page authority, and the linking domains. This will give you all external and internal links that competitor site has for that landing page.


You can also export the details in CSV, then shortlist the keyword accordingly.







IMAGE SELECTION AND OPTIMIZATION TOOLS


Canva is the free best image design tools, you can crop edit any image, resize the image, add text to the images, you will find the awesome layout for image, blur, sharpen and brighten any image, you will get a tons of templates for images, tons of image frames, stickers, bandages for the images.

This tool is excellent for bloggers to create eye-catching images for there blog posts. 

"AN IMAGE IS WORTH A THOUSAND WORDS". 

People like blogs which have best images relevant to the topic. For example, if you make an infographic it will get more share then a blank blog with no images. I personally use this tool for my blog and making pins for Pinterest.

Canva has the beautiful interface which is user-friendly and extremely easy to use, this is why it is most popular among bloggers, website holders, online business marketers, online entrepreneurs and other professional business persons.

pixabay

Pixabay has a collection of best images that you can use for your blog or website. 
Enter the keyword in the tab then you will get a collection of relevant images for the search term. 

Like in the pic you can see the relevant list of images for the search term beautiful birds.
You can edit the image later with Photoshop, Pixlr or Canva after you download that image from PIXABAY.

Pixlr 

pixlr


Pixlr is a free alternative to Photoshop, but here you don't need to download any software but if you can directly use it to edit any image just like Photoshop. If you don't have good knowledge about Photoshop this tool will work best for you. I have seen many Youtubers make their Youtube thumbnails using this free tools.
When it comes to header images, editing a photo, resizing the photo, decreasing the size of the pic then this tool works best for me. After you're done with the editing part then you just need to select the format for the image( JPEG OR PNG) and chose the quality according to the flexibility(see to that the quality of the image is maintained and not degraded).
When you download an image from Google, Pixabay or Canva then the original size of the image could be very large, if you directly apply that image into the WordPress or Blogger post than that can increase OR distort the blog size and increase the load time. The preferred image size for a blogging platform is less than 50 kb, to achieve this you have a best free image compression tool which can compress a large size image retaining the quality.

 Tiny png or JPEG, which can help you resize the image just by compressing an image size. All you need to do is click on upload image> select the image> click on the compress button, then Bang you have the compressed image.


OTHER HELPFUL SEO TOOLS



Grammarly comes with both free and paid. It is a very helpful tool that points out some small grammatical errors which you can modify and fix later.  Maybe the top bloggers, entrepreneurs, digital marketers, and online business holder they know how important it to their audience to give the details with less grammatical errors. I am using the free version which comes with certain limits like only the major few mistakes will be highlighted. VERY SOON, I will upgrade it to Pro version which is just $29 dollars per month.

Google analytics gives all details about the number of page views, the bounce rate for the site, the keyword which is driving traffic to a blog post, number of active users, and many other in-depth details about your the site. You have to just login with your blog or website URL then take the HTML code and place it as instructed or if you're in Blogspot platform then go to setting then to Google analytics place the UNIQUE ID. After a few hours, you will get the analytic report of your blog.
