If your strategy is to be found via search engines, than you need a plan with regards to your Search Engine Optimisation and to execute that plan you need tools.
A couple of tools are available for free such as Google Analytics and Search Console. But these tools don’t cover all your needs. Hence, you need to invest in some paid tools. Now there are a lot! Some offer a complete package, others have a specific function that won’t be valuable to everyone. There are great blogs out there that have made extensive comparisons where you can get lots of information.
In this post we won’t go into any details. We just want to give a shout out our favorites.
