Some tips and facts of paid SEO tools

Updated on April 13, 2013

Do we really need paid SEO tools?

With the type of economy that we have now, it is only natural to be as cost-efficient and budget-conscious as possible. However, does this also hold true for SEO purposes? The answer is quite simple – NO - in a certain sort of way.

What is SEO?

Surely a lot of people may have heard or read the term SEO at some point during their online experience. However, truly understanding its concept and importance is only familiar to the following type of web users:

  • Those who want to earn a decent amount of money on the internet
  • Those who wants their websites to be popular and famous
  • Marketing web users

SEO stands for search engine optimization and is somewhat a process whose main goal is to seemingly improve a site's visibility and presence on the search engines. SEO has numerous processes that include keyword research / utilization, concentrating promotional techniques on significant contributors of traffic sources, etc... In fact, the World Wide Web is heavily saturated with numerous SEO techniques and tips that it is quite intimidating for new players of the industry.

At this point some readers already grasped the main concept of SEO as it is actually not that hard to understand – implementing it is actually the hard part. Think of it this way: if you want to earn money on the internet through your bog or website, your site needs to be seen to be visited – and SEO is the process to do this.

Free SEO tools versus paid SEO tools –

"When you are good at something, don’t do it for free" sorry for the joker cliché but this one suits our topic quite nicely. For those who are not aware, there are various online SEO toils that are freely available – some are stand alone which basically means doing specific tasks. A good example of a free SEO tool is Google Webmaster Tools. New site owners will surely found this one extremely useful.

Of course there are also paid SEO tool versions. Naturally, consumers tend to shy away from such because should they use it when there are numerous free ones readily available. Unfortunately, this kind of mindset sort of separates who are serious and who are not in this industry. People who wanted to succeed knows that there is a reason on why paid SEO tools exists. Website owners contented in using free SEO tools may not be aware that there are certain new paid tools – like Colibri Tool, that integrate many of the core and critical aspects of SEO. This eliminates the need of using different stand-alone tools or scrutinizing closely various SEO steps and process. Using such tools also provides the benefit of faster analysis processing and consolidated reports for the user.

How to choose a reliable weir analysis tool –

If you are serious in making money on the internet through your blog and have decided going for a paid SEO tool, here are some tips to consider before signing up:

  • Check the existing clients of the company. It would be a plus if they catered or are catering to popular and reputable firms
  • Visit the website and assess the user experience. one of the key aspects of SEO is user experience (fast loading time, excellent content, visually striking, etc...) This one will say a lot about the kind of service offered by the tool and the company behind it
  • Go for those that offer free trial. It is always nice to test first the service before giving them our hard earned cash

That’s just about it. I’m not a SEO guru and most of the content published here are from personal experience and research. Good luck on your SEO endeavors and please feel free to leave a comment.

      Hi Peachpurple,

      Thank you for visiting and for the comment. For free ones, universal analytics seems like a good choice. For paid ones, will have to suggest trying out the free trial of Colibri Tool.

      By the way, am not proclaiming that I'm a SEO guru - this is only my 2nd hub for the subject matter :)

      Just found it interesting and wanting to increase the search engine visibility of my hubs - though Hubpages already does a great job on that :)
