On-Page Search engine optimization is the backbone of your blog.
It’s really difficult to make a blog survive without following the right on-page SEO practices. Gone are the days when bloggers just used to spam and use the rank and bank strategy. It’s not really possible now. Google is building strong algorithms for the survival of the fittest.
I still believe that content is king because I have myself experienced it. I rarely make backlinks for Universal Blogging Tips but still, I managed to be on the top for 2-3 competitive keywords for almost 3 years without any backlink for that page.
Everyone wants his pages to be on the top of the search results beating their competitors. But, is it so easy nowadays?
I make sure that I am doing my on-page SEO perfectly. So, today I am going to share some free on-page SEO tools that will help you to rank with your content.
10 Free On-Page SEO Tools For Bloggers
1. Google Keyword Planner
Keyword research is considered to be the most integral part of on-page SEO. Without keyword research on-page Search Engine Optimization is incomplete. But make sure that you use more of LSI keywords than the high volume keywords. This Quora page will help you get to know about some good LSI keywords tools.
I have seen bloggers saying that Google keyword planner shows inaccurate results, do you also believe that?
It’s not really like that. Even if it’s so, you still get a pretty good clue about the competition and search volume for that keyword. Though, now they have updated Google Keyword Planner which just shows the range and not the exact searches so I solely rely on SEMrush for my keyword research and competition analysis.
I considered Google Keyword Planner as one of the best tools to search for long tail keywords but since they have started showing the range, I use first use SEMrush and then use Google Keyword Planner tool.
Generally, what people do is directly enter the keyword and click on keyword ideas where they get the common results that it is showing to all the online marketers. But you can also make a lot more out of it. Let’s see how.
The first step is to visit Google Keyword Planner and click on “Search for new Keyword and ad group ideas“.
Suppose let’s say you are going to check long tail keywords related to “Buy flowers online“. Now, what you need to do is pick up the URL of any top site that is selling flowers and is ranking good in the search results.
Enter that URL in the landing page box and don’t forget to select the targeted countries and languages. If you want traffic only from USA the remove other countries. Rest you can leave as it is because they are mainly for paid customers.
Now, click on get ideas and then click on “Keyword Ideas” and there you’ll see some new long tail keywords that nobody can find. Isn’t it amazing? 😉
