Ok, I get it.
You think SEO is hard, but that isn't always true.
Let me tell you this:
SEO isn't hard or easy, keywords are.
So, let me show you the best SEO tools recommended by Reddit in 2022.
You don't have to check out every Reddit post for yourself. I've done it and the funny thing?
- Google Keyword Planner
- Google Analytics
- Search Console
- Screaming Frog
- Keyword Sheeter
Now, let me explain these quickly in a non-confusing way. EASY understandable.
According to Reddit, SEMRush and Ahrefs are essential tools if you're serious about SEO. They're pricey but no matter which Reddit post about SEO tools you're going to open, you'll find one of these tools.
Well, the most important thing is, they will tell you for which keywords you're currently ranking. Now search console does the same, but SEMRush and Ahrefs are way more specific in doing that.
According to Reddit, SEMRush does a better job in terms of Keywords and AHREFS is better for Backlinks. Although a lot of Redditor's are using SEMRush.
So, with these tools, you'll be able to actually find the volume and the keywords you need to focus on.
Both tools offer a backlink profile for your page. Find out who is linking to you and who doesn't.
