cong-cu-seo-and-seo-tool

Don't worry, I'll show you what are the best free SEO tools:

Free SEO tools are required

Google Analytics

I will say as simple as this: Once you have SEO, you must use Google Analytics.

It gives you an overview of how users interact with your website.

Like which page is being liked the most, CTR, Bounce Rate, Pageview, Realtime….

I see many of you are not taking full advantage of the features on GA.

Google Analytics now has a new feature Insights very good (actually a long time ago)

Google-Analytics-Insights

If you are new to GA or don't understand the numbers, it is very helpful for you.

It will give some suggestions on website parameters such as:

  • Website performance week-over-week: compare basic statistics between weeks.
  • Basic Performance: Some statistics like (how many users last week)
  • Where You Get Your User From: Which channel accounts for the largest percentage
  • Understanding Trends: Changes on the website
  • Content Analytics: Which article has the most views

Insight

For example, here I choose Performance, you can see some parameters such as:

  • User this week increased or decreased compared to the previous week
  • Average Session Time
  • Bounce Rate
  • Page / Session
  • Event

For more details, click Go to report.

I believe this feature will help you have a clear view of the website, and how users are interacting.

Google Analytics also has many features to help you better understand users.

If you still find it difficult to use, use the MonsterInsights plugin for convenience.

In the near future, I will give more detailed instructions on how to use Google Analytics effectively.

Google Search Console

Just as important as Google Analytics. Google Search Console (formerly Web Master Tool).

This free SEO toolkit from Google has a lot of features like:

Notify you when any errors occur on the website (duplicate content, 404 errors, no index errors, errors on mobile, AMP ...)

The most outstanding feature of GSC is checking the "phrase" that users are searching for and clicking on your website.

On the left menu select Performace.

Google-Search-Console

The main function of Google Search Console

  • Total clicks - The total number of clicks to your website
  • Total impressions - The total number of impressions on GG search results
  • Average CTR - The ratio of mouse clicks (total clicks / total impressions)
  • Average postion - Average position on GG

Directly below you will see a list of key phrases in Tab Queries

van-tu-tu-tu

Here you will see the words with the most clicks, and impressions

Also you switch to other tabs like:

  • Pages - The page with the most clicks and impressions
  • Countries - Clicks mainly come from any country
  • Devies - The most used devices (desktop, mobile, tablet)
  • Search Appearance - How the results you display on GG (AMP article, AMP non-rich results ..)

Please check the keywords you are having the most clicks, and their position.

From this statistics will help you, see if the results are on the right track.

Or find phrases that sometimes you do not expect, are searched by users.

I will usually look for impression phrases here.

But no CTR or high click, and optimization.

Search Analytics for Sheets

Analytics-Google-Sheet

Those who have to plan or make SEO reports, will definitely like this extension.

You can sync the parameters from GSC to Google Sheet, without having to copy your hands.

Want to see Google Search Console data from more than 90 days ago?

This is very simple, use the Search Analytics for Sheets add-on.

Just add it to Google Sheets, authorize it with GSC and the add-on is ready to go.

Google Keyword Planner

First to use this SEO tool, you will need an account already running Google Adwords ads.

Choose Tools » Keyword planning tool

keyword-planner

In the past, people used this tool to research courses.

But I said before, now that's not the right way of keyword research anymore.

I rarely keyword research in this way.

Instead, I will use Google Keyword Planner as a support tool, to check the volume of that keyword.

Refer: How to research new keywords 2019

Volume is the total number of searches for that keyword in a month.

Competition is the difficulty level of the keyword (this is not accurate).

Lowest bid - highest, this one will be for those who run Adwords offline.

Actually there are quite a lot of checking tools like Ahref, SEMrush….

But I still trust Google Keyword Planner the most, because it's simply Google 😀

What I'm most interested in here is "Monthly Search Searches"

Do not SEO words with low search volume.

Depending on your field, you can estimate the amount of volume worth SEO.

Usually I will prioritize words with a search volume of 1000 or more.

You should use Google Tag Manager to install all scripts (Google Analytics, Google Search Console ..) and use them on a single dashboard.

Yoast SEO

yoast-seo-premium

After researching, keyword analysis is over. The next step will be to write content and write articles with those keyword sets.

We often call writing standard SEO articles.

Simply put together a list of techniques you can apply in articles such as:

  • Keyword must be in URL, title, meta description, H1, H2, ..
  • Keyword density will somewhere be 1-5%
  • In the article will have internal links
  • Photos with atl containing keywords
  • ……

In general, quite a lot, and to work and remember it all is too difficult.

So you need Yoast SEO to remind, as well as check these SEO standards.

I have used both Yoast SEO Premium and All in On SEO Pack.

And see Yoast SEO Premium is a very good SEO tool.

It is regularly updated, the interface is easy to use, many useful features.

Although you can download Yoast SEO Free here.

But I still recommend Yoast SEO Premium with more functions.

SEO tool: Quick On-page analysis
