It is essential to perform the best job for our clients. We have to make sure we have the best SEO tools. I have been in this industry for some time and have seen SEO software development grow from basic to advanced tools. Here is a list of what we currently like to use here at Search Focus.
Ahrefs is the most comprehensive backlink analysis tool on the market. It provides users with a wide range of metrics and data about any website or URL.
In this article, we’ll show you how to use Ahrefs to find backlinks for your and competitors’ websites. Ahrefs is one of our favourite tools for SEO. It’s easy to use, has a ton of features, and it only takes a few seconds to get an overview of any website’s backlinks.
Using a tool like Ahrefs means you don’t have to check each link individually manually. Instead, you can quickly see where each link points and what its value is (or was). For example: If I want to know if there are any broken links on my site, I can type “broken” into the search box, and it shows us all the broken links on my site.
To put it simply, this online tool is excellent for competitor spying. It can report all the backlinks your competitors have sourced, the PPC keywords they are bidding on, and even what they naturally rank for. If your job requires you to profile and source backlinks, Ahrefs.com is a must-have SEO tool. Also featured on this fantastic online tool is a content explorer showing you the most shared content on social media, a keyword suggestion tool, and domain comparison; they even have their own browser SEO toolbar so you can see results away from their website.
The Swiss army knife of data gathering. It can scrape anything, from article ideas, metadata, backlinks, DA & PA, emails, domain names, and more. This is a piece of software we have been using since the beginning.
In a nutshell, Scrapebox is a powerful scraping tool that helps you find and extract data from the internet. This could be anything from email addresses, phone numbers, social media profiles, YouTube videos, Facebook pages or even entire websites.
Scrapebox has existed for many years and is continuously updated with new features and functions. The software can build lists of emails or phone numbers for your marketing campaigns or gather information about your competitors.
Even though Scrapebox is a powerful tool, it’s straightforward. The software has a built-in tutorial that will walk you through each step of using the software, so you’ll get up and running in no time.
The main advantage of using Scrapebox is that it allows you to extract data from different websites and save them in one place. This makes it very easy to manage the extracted data and make changes when needed.
To know how this tool works, you must understand how web scraping generally works. Web scraping involves extracting information from different sources on the internet. These sources could be social media management platforms such as Facebook or Twitter, forums or even e-commerce sites like Amazon or Alibaba, where much information can be extracted easily.
It can be used to find email addresses and other contact information, scrape content from thousands of websites, find links to your or your competitor’s sites, and much more. Scrapebox also has a built-in proxy server list that allows you to perform all these tasks anonymously.
Most people will use Google’s search engine when finding email addresses or links on websites because it’s free and easy. However, this method can be very time consuming and inefficient because many websites don’t have an index page on Google. Many people turn to scrape software like Scrapebox because these programs allow them to scrape multiple sites at once and then compile all the information into one place so they can easily access it later on if needed.
SEO Content Machine
Great for scraping articles. We do not scrape articles to use as our own; we use them to gather ideas to post new content in our writing, and this piece of software can gather articles to download to your computer straight to a folder of your choice.

Bring forth Roboform, the ultimate time-saver with form filling. If you are new to SEO and planning to stick with it for a while, you had better get used to filling in forms, and this baby will help you along the way. It has one minor annoyance, though: it often pops up when you don’t need it if you forget to deactivate it when you are not using it, but other than that, it is hunky dory.

This is a browser plugin that we do use, but not as much as other SEO services tools. It has its uses, though, such as adding additional information under search engine results, such as Alexa rank, SEMrush backlinks, Webarchive age, Facebook likes and Google +1’s, view page source, Pinterest pins, Linkedin data and more. Be careful with it, though, as it queries the search engines, so if you have your Google results set to 100 results per page and have all the parameters set to auto-query, you will quickly find your IP address banned from Google for a couple of hours.
