    SEO Tools

    I am going to buy a paid tools.
    But I am confused to what should I buy.

    Is Semrush good or seo profiler?
    or Majestic SEO?
    Open Site Explorer?

    I would not buy any of them! But, I'm only an SEO with 23 years experience - what would I know.

    1. Are you a professional SEO?
    2. What do you want an SEO tool to provide?
    3. If you are an amateur, don't buy before you learn the SEO basics

    I've purchased access to SEO tools in the past. I found I was better off using the free version of an SEO tool.

    Here is where you need to start your quest...

    • No SEO tool knows how G ranks web pages
    • Their projections rely on their databases. (Look them up, if they publish them. Some don't tell you - ever.)
    • Their algorithms are as secret as Google's.
    • They potentially know no more about how G ranks pages than any SEO.
    • You need to understand what their metrics mean

    ...and on goes the SEO tool nonsense.

    SEO tools can be very useful, if you know how to interpret their results and use them to save time.

    SEO power suite has good tools, keep in mind with
    any tool you need to interpret the data, the main reason to use tools is to gather the data fast, but you need to analyze it and not go by the tools telling you what to do.

    Screaming Frog is an absolute must, especially for bigger sites.
