Best SEO tools from Reddit (2022)

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?

Almost every Reddit post will show you the same SEO tools.(1,2,3) Free and paid. As someone who has been working with a lot of SEO WordPress pages, I can assure you, these are the best SEO tools.

Reddits best SEO tools

What are Reddit's best SEO tool recommendations?

  • SEMRush
  • KWFinder
  • Ahrefs
  • Google Keyword Planner
  • Google Analytics
  • Search Console
  • Screaming Frog
  • Keyword Sheeter

Now, let me explain these quickly in a non-confusing way. EASY understandable.

SEMRush acc. Reddit

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.

What do they do?

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.

SEMRush Reddit

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.

Because here's the thing:

Your competitor might have some nice backlinks which you don't. With SEMRush and Ahrefs, you can find these backlinks and then start sending out some backlink requests.


This is the tool if you want to know how hard it is to rank for a keyword.

And that's not it.

This tool will even tell you the keyword volume. So before you optimize your page a keyword that is not worth it, make sure to check out KWFinder.

It's one of Reddit's favorite.

Google Keyword Planner

Is actually a tool for paid search. You can check how much volume a keyword contains. And also the competition. However the competition is only for paid, the search volume is something you can use. Although it's not 100% accurate.

Google Analytics

The classic tools. Free.

Will give you insights into how many visitors are currently on your website, from where they come, and how long they stay. Perfect for every SEO.

Search Console

Is basically used to submit your page to google. You can submit sitemaps and also check what keywords you're currently ranking for.

Screaming Frog

Want to check where your H1 is a duplicate or where you have 401 internal links? Screaming Frog is a free tool with which you can do exactly that.

It's free for small pages and paid for bigger ones.

Keyword Sheeter

Remember these search queries that google suggests to you? Well, the keyword sheeter is going to "sheet" a lot of them for you. Free tool

BTW, I've also used Reddit to find the best VPN for 2021 and the best web hosting service. Make sure to check out these articles as well.
