The Ultimate SEO Toolbox: Best SEO Tools

Welcome to the Ultimate SEO Toolbox! This is a collection of what we think are the best SEO tools on the internet. We hope you find something new and useful!

Every good marketer, SEO and webmaster has a set of tools they can’t live without and if you’re like us, you’re always on the hunt for a better tool for just about everything.

We’ll try to keep this toolbox fresh as we find new services, software and other tips to help you get the most from your work.

* If there’s a tool that you don’t see listed but you think it should be, please shoot us an inquiry here and let us know so we can check it out. Also, if you have a tool or service of your own and would like to see if featured here, contact us and we’ll see what we can do!

Affiliate Programs

Amazon Affiliate Program– This is where most affiliate marketers start out as you can sell just about anything you can think of and consumers trust Amazon as a brand. Not only will you get a commission on what you sell but you will get a commission on everything in their shopping cart too.
Shareasale – Some of the big names you’ll find here. Everything from hosting to physical products. Pets, clothing and weight loss they have it all. These are much more niche products and you will want to spend some time finding a program that makes sense for you. Good program that tells you a lot about their vendors and their account status so you’re more likely to get paid.
JVZoo – Small network of high converting items usually all digital and some really out there products. Good for smaller creators to get selling fast and earning high commissions. Can be a little hard to navigate. Focuses a lot on email marketing. – Mostly digital products for email list marketing and blog marketing. Lots of ebooks, courses etc.
Clickbank – Very possibly one of the most popular platform for digital products. Ebooks, courses, membership sites and more available here to promote to your list or to promote your own products through their large network.
CJ Affiliate – This is probably the largest (or one of the largest) affiliate marketing platforms. There are a lot of programs to choose from. However, if you don’t make money for a while, they will threaten to deactivate your account simply because you suck! The big names have little direct contact with vendors which is annoying. We’d recommend you start elsewhere first, but if you’re on top of all the others, this can be a good place to earn revenue. :)

Fiverr Gigs

Logo Design

williamrosario – This guy does awesome $5 logos! Great for money sites or PBNs.


The Ad Twins – We did this gig for a bunch of our videos, then just changed up the keywords.

Link Building & Social Signals

CRork Service SEO Gigs – These guys are widely used in the SEO community and provide link building, social signals, article spinning, social bookmarking, web 2.0s, link wheels and more.


Siconsultants – These guys did an awesome infographic for us. We paid the rush free to get it delivered in under 24 hours which they did with no problem without sacrificing quality.
jo7654320 – We ordered an infographic from this user and it was pretty good, we would use the service again, but liked the infographic by Siconsultants better.

Off-Page SEO – Backlink Checking, Metrics, Competitor Analysis

Majestic – Where Majestic really stands out in the crowd is by providing trust flow and citation flow. Other sites will show you how many backlinks a page has but not the trust of those backlinks. If you have a domain you want to buy and it has thousands of backlinks, it the trust flow of those is ZERO, it’s probably not a good domain to buy. Or, if you aren’t ranking well, if your trust flow is low, now you see that you have opportunity to get some high-trust links to bring it up a bit.
Ahrefs – Ahrefs is consistently the best at finding new backlinks.
Moz Pro – Moz is a great indicator of domain authority. It also has some nifty keyword competitiveness tools where it will give you a percentage based on how hard a keyword is to rank for. While Moz Pro is great, if we could only have one tool of this set, it would not be Moz.
SERPWoo – SERPWoo is the greatest tool yet to help decode the serps over time. The problem with a rank tracker is it only shows your current ranking at a given moment in time. You could refresh it every 15 minutes to try to get an idea whats happening, but that’s silly really. SERPWoo allows you to see what sites are above you (assuming you’re still reaching for #1 spot) and those below you and track all this over time. It’s a great research tool to help you decide if you even want to get involved in a niche. You can also see up and coming competitors. This tool is a must have for anyone serious about SEO. We use it all day long for hundreds of keywords.

Rank Tracking tools

SERPBook – After trying out many rank trackers this is what we’ve settled on. It has an excellent dashboard, iseasy to read, updates multiple times a day, is reliable, and it can also track local and YouTube videos. It also integrates with Google Analytics so that you can see your website traffic over the past 30 days and compares it to the previous period.
Rank Trakr – excellent visuals, can track local rankings
Rank Ranger – beautiful dashboard, white label reports, social signals, conversion tracking, link manager
ProRankTracker – has freemium option, can track YouTube and local, good email report with useful information all in a compact email
Blackhat Community – included in paid membership
Rank Watch – free trial, keyword tools, local tracking, while label reports, email alerts, Google Analytics integration
Rank Tracker – limited free version avail. Desktop software that is great for agencies, can do white label reports, uses a lot of system resources, can run reports automatically on a schedule, email reports automatically
SERP Rank Tracker
SERP Watch
MicroSiteMasters – has freemium option, email reports aren’t that helpful

Group Buys

Susan – Susan provides great group buys, but she doesn’t just let anyone in the group. Click the link, send us a message with what tools you need, where you heard about her and your contact info. We’ll forward it on to her and she’ll respond if she has any openings.
SeoAccounts – Group buy for the major tools, Moz, Majestic, Ahrefs, Spyfu and Keyword Canine

Press Release Services

BlackHatWorld forum service – $79 – provides a solid PR service with upwards of 200 links. Can create content. Has excellent form to complete and does the rest.

On-Page SEO

On Page Optimzation Tools

Bruce Clay SEO Toolset – This isn’t a tool we do not hear others talk about the SEO community. While on-page optimization isn’t everything, this tool will compare 5-10 pages in the top 10 for any given keyword and let you know what to do on-page to be “normal”. It will tell you how long to make your titles, metas and body copy as well as what a good keyword density would be. This is great because sometimes it suggests you only need 300 words of body copy to be competitive and other times, 3000 words.

Keyword Research Tools

Keyword Canine – For those of you who have a team of people and you just prefer to use web based tools instead of desktop software, then Keyword Canine is a great solution. It’s another brain child of Jonathan Ledger who has built many tools we all know and use like The Best Spinner and Article Builder.
LongTail Pro Software – A fast and easy tool that helps you discover new keywords. If you’re like us we need help finding the golden nuggets to target. It helps to also have a competitive analysis of a word before you invest your heart and soul into chasing it. Long Tail Pro is all that in a box. Excellent tool developed by the legend Spencer Haws.
Market Samurai – Great software that helps you find and deep research new keyword ideas, competitiveness and look for opportunity. Free trial is a nice feature. Try before you commit.
SERPWoo – SERPWoo is the greatest tool yet to help decode the serps over time. SERPWoo allows you no not only do keywor research but see who is currently ranking, measure the volatility of a SERP and get better insights into who you’re up against. It’s a great tool to see if big fish are already dominating the top 10 and whether its even worth the effort to chase. You can also track them over time so you can set up keywords you’re thinking about and let the software do the work. It’s a great research tool to help you decide if you even want to get involved in a niche. You can also see up and coming competitors. This tool is a must have for anyone serious about SEO. We use it all day long for hundreds of keywords.

Video SEO

Youtube Video Optimization and Streaming Software

TubeRankJeet Software – Steal all the best tags, description length and video title from the best ranking videos FAST with this optimization software.
Content Samurai – For those that want a simple template solution for making sales videos that look great and convert great this is a simple done for you solution. Just enter the text and tweak with backgrounds or images which are included with the service and you’re done. It’s not the only way to make great sales videos, but its definitely easy!
Wirecast Streaming Software – If you want videos ranked fast, this is how to do it. Combine with the magic of TubeRankJeet to dial in your optimization and then stream your video live to Youtube for nearly instant top rankings. Excellent if you’re working in lead gen, pay per lead or doing affiliate with videos!

Loganix – Citation building + will bulk up those citations by building links to them.
whitespark-100x100Whitespark – Whitespark takes a few weeks to deliver citations but they are widely used in the SEO community.
Brightlocal – Another widely used service in the SEO industry. They will show you a report of your citations and whether they are live, pending or not yet submitted. They also show the verification required on your part to make the citation live which is great.
Localcitationservices – These guys will deliver a handful of citations for as low as $5 and while we were skeptical at first, the citations were delivered promptly (within a few days) with no problems.
PBN Butler – These guys also deliver prompt citations as well as offer a service to build links to your citations to boost them up.

Verified GMB (Google My Business) Listings

InstantGMB – Verified GMB listing for around $99.
PBN Butler – Verified GMB listing for around $99.
MapTrustPBNs – Verified GMB listing for around $99.

Link Building

Web 2.0s

FCS Networker – This is great for creating a large number of Web 2.0s, managing them all, posting to them, creating link wheels, creating link pyramids, and a lot more. At this point we are only experienced using it for creating a large network of 2.0s. There is a learning curve to this software, but we will soon write a post on how to create a large network fast with minimal errors!
RankWYZ – RankWYZ is similar to FCS Networker but runs quite a bit cheaper. We grew frustrated with the software as it was not intuitive to us but we will spend some more time with it in the future.
Scrapebox – Great for harvesting large amounts of data and is also quick at automated commenting.

Niche Blog Comments

Adss30 – They’re beasts at providing drip fed, fast and accurate niche blog comments. Affordable and great communication.

Full PBN Setup

PBN Fox – Top notch PBN builds from Nemanja and Crew! This team is a beast at taking over projects and delivering a ready-to-use product. They can find domains, build them out and even offer hosting management. They were part of our Done-For-You PBN Case Study and all sites they built are still indexed to this day over 1 year later.
SERP FOCUS – Reputable service for PBN builds from Michael Milas including a very exhaustive list of features some other services overlook such as fake WhoIs data and security plugins. Visit site for current pricing.
PBN Butler – PBN Butler offers full PBN setup at $50/site. We’re not sure what all that entails but we’ve been happy with their other services so we have no reason to think this would be a poor experience.
Authority Website Income – Jon Haver has his own done-for-you PBN service at $109.99/site + $9.99/site monthly cost. We’ve not used this service but it’s another option. This includes finding niche-relevant expired domains, 5 unique articles to start, host and manage the sites, and also create one new article each month.

VPS and SEO VPS Servers

PowerUpHosting – (starting at$15/mo for a 1 GB mem box with unlimited bandwidth Windows Server 12)
OffShoreVPS – (starting at $18/mo for a 3GB mem box with unlimited bandwidth w Windows 8)

Traffic and Website Analytics

Clicky – (FREE)
WP SlimStat – It’s a good idea not to install Google Analytics on all of your sites as this could leave a huge footprint. WP SlimStat is great for WordPress sites to install as a plugin. Nothing is as robust as Google Analytics but it can still give you an overview of what is going on with your site.

Content creation and Articles


Spin ReWriter – Web based spinning software that can generate everything from very high uniqueness to insane quantities of spun articles. Just load up your seed and push a button. You can preview sample articles before spinning and you can output in several different formats.
WordAI – WordAi is the first spinner that understands and replicates complex thoughts. When most spinners just change our words, WordAi understands the context. This is very good for spinning Tier 1 content with a very high uniqueness score.
The Best Spinner – If you want flat out control over spinning The Best Spinner is the way to go. We’ve used it for over a year to hand spin very high quality articles into the 300 article range with 90% originality. We’ve used it with GSA and filters to get ranked for 14k/mo search terms and have survived all algo updates no problem as the quality is so high and unique. This is a desktop software. Great for VA’s to use too.

Creation – We’ve ordered numerous articles from these guys and they’ve always delivered great articles for our PBNs and even money sites. They have some great package options. – We’ve ordered numerous articles from these guys and they’ve always delivered great articles for our PBNs and even money sites. They have some great package options.

Scraping Expired Domains


DomainBeast – I finally convinced Matt Chalk to teach me everything he knows about finding high TF relevant domains from his laptop. After paying him $1000 cash he agreed to let me share it with others. The outcome was this 6 video course where he’s tells all of his secrets. “It’s worth every penny” – Zacc Wair

Expired Domain Crawlers

Domain Miner – High capacity crawler software that can power through millions of URLs in a day and is best suited for crawling large suites like Wikipedia, Huffington Post and other large sites. Can also do large seeds lists of smaller sites like forums, directories etc. Does A LOT of the processing for you all on auto pilot as it runs an availability check and then runs moz metrics on available domains so you spend time doing minimal cleanup. – $200 / month rental.

Screaming Frog – Simplest SEO crawler I’ve seen so far. Software based crawler used to spider websites and their outbound links looking for domains which are expired.
Xenu Link Sleuth – Probably one of the oldest free SEO crawlers, but not nearly as simple to operate, nor as reliable as Screaming Frog. Still works well for those on a tiny budget, this software is free and can crawl very well! – FREE!

Scrape Cleaning Tools

URL to Domain – Super fast duplicate remover, url trimmer and cleaner all in one to bring crawled urls down to the root domain to be processed for availability. – FREE!
Namechex – Software that can do massive domain availability checks. Runs on a few different free API’s such as Dynadot and Namecheap. Is the best solution for doing huge availability checks as most tools are limited to 500, 1000 or less. Cost about $50. Use the DynaDot FREE API. It works great, it’s free and is very quick. Can bulk check 10k domains in 15 min. Just sign up for a free account and click on Domains > API to get your access code.

MOZ – For checking PA/DA

Zacc Wair on FB
George Do on FB – Great seller! Great buying experience and good reputation.

VPS Rentals

Offshore VPS Rental – Fantastic service and very affordable VPS rental. Use remote desktop to access and great hardware that will run more software than just a domain scraper. Nice to have for longer scrapes so you can be anywhere doing anything while it’s running! We run 2 of them for different scrapers. Great service and support also. $15/mo for a basic VPS.


WordPress Plugins

EazyAzon – Get credit for many more Amazon sales, not just for the country you live in! If you like in the US and 50% of your traffic is too, what about the other 50%? You’re missing out on those sales! This plugin will ensure you get credit for many more countries by “localizing” the links. Also, let viewers add products straight to their shopping cart, and if they put an item in their shopping cart, you get credit if they buy within 89 days.
Simple Page Sidebars – This page is great for creating a custom sidebar for every different page if you wish. We use this to create strong silo structures and a highly-organized site.
Pretty Link Lite – Cloak and no-follow your affiliate links (or any link) with Pretty Link Lite. This is what we use on our blog. You can see how many times each link was clicked on your blog and also implement goal tracking on these links. We will write a post on exactly how to do this in the near future since we wasted a lot of time trying to figure it out.
Universal Star Rating – What’s more convincing than a 5-star rating? Not much! Add a star-rating to things on your blog or products you are trying to sell. This is guaranteed to increase your conversion rates.
TablePress – Easily create beautiful tables on your blog that can also be sorted by the viewer. Simply upload a CSV file and you’re good to go. Also easy to customize with CSS.
Magic Liquidizer – Don’t have a table on your blog that isn’t mobile-responsive! Just use this plugin and your tables will look great on mobile devices.
SumoMe – Easily collect email subscribers and grow your list with this plugin. We talk about this more under email marketing further down on this page.
WooCommerce Amazon Affiliates – Have a beautiful store right on your site with Amazon products. They do everything on your site (including picking sizes, colors, etc.) right up until checkout. This plugin can pull in multiple products straight from Amazon and even spin the content, although we don’t recommend spun content on your money site.
WordPress SEO by Yoast – This is a must-have for your blog. Easily keep track of what keywords you are targeting on each page and aim for a green light on every post for SEO. You can easily change titles, metas, plus this plugin will create a sitemap for you.
Mouseflow – This plugin will record visitors on your site so you can see how they interact with your page. You can also see a heatmap and clickmap of traffic.
Sticky Widget – Increase your conversion rates with Sticky Widget. Whatever you want people to do, ensure it stays in their view by having it be sticky in the sidebar.
Wordle – Kinda random but you can create awesome word clouds for free with this tool which can be great for featured images or whatever you want.

WordPress Themes

Free WordPress Themes – Depending on what your website is and what you want to do with it, free WordPress themes should work just fine. We mostly only use these for PBNs and rarely for money sites as they can be very limiting.
Divi by ElegantThemes – This is our favorite WordPress theme at the moment. We use it on multiple sites (money sites and client sites). It’s ridiculously easy to work with, you can easily create landing pages, there are a plethora of sexy icons to choose from, and it’s overall downright sexy. It has a page builder feature which is nice but it also marries you to the theme which is a downside.
StudioPress – This is also a reputable theme provider we have used in the past. If we weren’t using a free theme or Divi, we would jump over to StudioPress to see what they have available.
BeTheme – This is another theme that uses a page builder (Muffin Builder or Visual Composer). There are many pre-made sites that people like for lead gen. There are lots of sexy elements to use but if you want just a simple site it can be over the top.

Email Marketing

Software & Apps

ConvertKit – One thing bloggers and inbound marketers find out quickly is the quality of their email service. Convertkit understands workflow. They know emails must make sense, have systemization and create outcomes. If you have a list over 3,000 it’s priced competitively and the workflow automation is flawless. Pat Flynn just switched to ConvertKit. We’re moving that way too!
MailChimp – If you want to get an email campaign up and running quick with zero cost, MailChimp is for you! We use this on dozens of accounts and it gets the job done every time. You can quickly create templates, lists, schedule campaigns, and it integrates with many plugins. It integrates well with SumoMe so that someone can seamlessly sign up for your newsletter without you needing to lift a finger.
AWeber – (monthly)
GetResponse – (30 day trial, monthly)

List Building

SUMO ME – This is a free AWESOME plugin for WordPress! It allows viewers to easily sign up for your email newsletter among other things. You can create a sticky bar at the top of your website (featured on this blog), you can have a pop-up in the corner of your website (also featured on this blog), and you can also have a full-screen pop-up that asks viewers to sign up for your newsletter or engage in a different type of call to action.
Email Before Download Plugin – Another great way to list build is to offer a digital product in exchange for an email. By having a plugin such as this, you can do exactly that!

Membership Management / Restrict Content

Stand Alone

MemberMouse – Membermouse is an amazing software. Integrates with WordPress to give you full content control. It’s best feature is the sales funnel integration and save the sale. It doesn’t just help to control access, but helps you keep customers as well as offer upsells, downsells and cross sells. We’ve built a couple membership sites with MemberMouse and we’ll keep using it in the future!

Social Media Marketing


PinGroupie – Find tons of group Pinterest boards to pin your content to. That way, you have an audience when you pin. You will need to ask the board creators to invite you.


Money Site Hosting

Siteground Reseller Hosting This hosting is a little tricky, but VERY good quality for your most valuable PBNs and money sites. If you sites are below 10k/mo traffic you’re better off going with reseller hosting. You’ll pay about $4/mo for a site. Support is awesome. They bill by the year only and you’ll have to buy 5 sites. So expect to pay about $225 for 5 sites for the year. 10gb of disk space per site, unlimited data. Cpanel, WordPress and 1 click installs. Hosting on 3 continents for diversity and speed. If you have just a couple sites or you have a lot of traffic 25k+/mo then go with their monthly plan like GrowBig or GoGeek for all the same features billed monthly. High quality hosting for high quality sites.
Traffic Planet Hosting – This is who we currently host our most-important sites with. Fast SSD WordPress hosting with fast and reliable support via chat and support ticket. Email addresses included. Be sure to set your email storage high to prevent service interruption.
PowerUp Hosting

PBN Hosting

HostNine Reseller Hosting – (100 accts = $18.95/mo) be sure to find their reseller hosting page. That’s where the good deal is.
ResellerClub Hosting – Very affordable. $3.29/mo. Unlimted hosting, unlimited bandwidth. Don’t buy their reseller hosting. They don’t guarantee IP diversity. Stick with their personal accounts and don’t use too many of them as they don’t ensure they will end up on different IP addresses. Support is via email which is slow so we’d recommend this as a last addition to your network. Don’t put critical sites on this host.
Bluehost Reseller Hosting – $13.95/mo gets you unlimited sites, bandwidth, and email accounts. CDN network included. Bluehost recommends Reseller club for reseller hosting so you can simply use Bluehosts shared hosting for PBNs, but if you have a lot of domains you’ll want to maybe set up a couple different accounts to keep them separate.
Namecheap Reseller Hosting – Reseller 2 plan starts at $26.99/mo and includes unlimited accounts, 75gb of disk and 2000gb of data. WHM, Cpanel and 1 click installs are included.
Green Geek Reseller Hosting – Sprout account starts at $24.95/mo and includes unlimited domains, CPanel, WHMCS, 1 click install of popluar CMS systems
Hostgator Reseller Hosting – Aluminim plans starting at $19.96/mo includes unlimited websites, 50gb disk space and 500 gb of data. WHM/Cpanel and 1 click installs included.(Beware they try to sell you WordPress setup stuff and premium themes in their 1 click installer program. It’s pretty clever but easy to get around!)
Siteground Reseller Hosting This hosting is a little tricky, but VERY good quality for your most valuable PBNs and money sites. You’ll pay about $4/mo for a site, but de-index rates are extremely rare. Support is awesome. They bill by the year only and you’ll have to buy 5 sites. So expect to pay about $225 for 5 sites for the year. 10gb of disk space per site, unlimited data, but limited to 10k/visits/site/month. Cpanel, WordPress and 1 click installs. Hosting on 3 continents for diversity and speed. High quality hosting for high quality sites.
Godaddy Hosting Godaddy is by far the largest hosting provider in the world. That means hiding in plain sight. However it’s a little confusing. They don’t offer reseller hosting. Instead their standard hosting is “unlimited”. That’s not a full fact. They throttle your bandwidth if you use too much. Cpanel is included, easy interface, 1 click installs are all standard. $4.49/mo if you buy it yearly. Makes your cost per site below $.50/mo. Can be a little glitchy as they overload servers sometimes or if a server gets a traffic spike, so we don’t recommend it for money sites. Go with one of our money site hosts above. Stay away from their reseller program. It’s like a highly confusing affiliate program and isn’t what you might think of as reseller hosting.

CDN (Content Delivery Network) services

CLoudflare – Free account with unlimited sites. Works as a security service and as content delivery to reduce bandwidth usage. Easy to setup. Premium plans available for money and client sites too. Good support.
