6 SEO Tools for 2020

There are hundreds of web optimization tools out there, but some are just better than others. I am not saying the other applications are not as good; a lot of them have great features. This list is our preferred search engine ranking tools. Here are the top 6 tools of the trade that we use daily:

  1. SEMRush
  2. Ubersuggest
  3. Screaming Frog SEO Spider
  4. Google Analytics
  5. Google Ads
  6. You!


SEMRush is a “go-to” for analyzing a website and digging deep into its current state. The information you get from the site analysis is a good benchmark from where to start. Every change to the site, it’s keywords, metadata, structure and content, from here on out, is crucial to monitor and check.

With tools like Position Tracking, Banklink Audit, Link Building, PPC Keyword Tool, Ad Builder, to name a few, you will be able to make informed decisions as to where to focus your efforts.

One thing I like is the ability to add your competition to the tools and compare your site against their’s gaining valuable insights into what works and what doesn’t.

We could go on and on, getting into the hundreds of little things that make you a more informed SEO master. I would suggest you try the 7-day pro trial giving you the full-blown down low on your website. If you prefer to test it, You get one free project when you sign up, so make sure it is your own.
