There are multiple tools for SEO but one must find the exact tools for doing the correct optimization. Usually, it is really complicated to do SEO work without having any sort of tools or automated services, so probably it is now very much essential for optimizers to indulge in SEO tools which will help them in optimizing their website pages and results in various search engines.  Below are some must have SEO tools which will surely help you in your SEO tasks:

1.  JustSearch’s Site Comparison Tool
JustSearch’s Site Comparison Tool. What better way of getting an indication of how much search engine optimisation your site needs than by comparing your site with one of your competitors. Enter your site and the URL of one of your competitors and you will not only get a decent amount of data but you will also be shown a radar graph of the data. The essentially represents a footprint of your site, compares to your competitor’s footprint. Probably the best SEO tool I’ve seen for a while as it paints a clear picture of what needs to be done.

2.  Backlink Watch’s Back Link Checker Tool
Backlink Watch’s Back Link Checker Tool. Most back link tools just tell you how many links you have. This tool goes a step further and looks at the anchor text, PageRank and number of out bound links on the linking page. It will also give you an indication of any abnormal flags like nofollow that have been used on the backlink. It does take some time to run, but it produces a good set of results.

3.  Dig Pagerank’s PageRank Tool
Dig Pagerank’s PageRank Tool. Useful to see your PageRank, but more than that. You can view what you PageRank is in lots of different Google data centers and see if a PageRank update is coming your way.

4.  SearchStatus Firefox Extension
SearchStatus’ Firefox Extension. A must have tool for any SEO that uses Firefox. A simple right click on on the unobtrusive icon will give you access to backlink for either the page or the domain, or even a neat little keyword density checker. The toolbar will also display PageRank, Alexa rank and Compete rank information.

5.  JustSearch’s Nortometer Tool
JustSearch’s Nortometer Tool. Odd name, but I’ve not seen much like this tool out there. The tool looks at the top results in Google for a given keyword and then matches commonly used words a phrases on each of those pages. The result is 1-4 word phrases that you should be including in your content in order to match those sites that rank highly for your keyword. It is a keyword suggestion tool that doesn’t use searching statistics.

6.  Google’s Webmaster Tools
Google’s Webmaster Tools. The brilliant Google web master tools has a few good functions that are useful to any SEO. With a built in back link checker and a header analyzer it is a good way of spotting problems in the long run.

7.  SEO for Mozilla Firefox by SEOBook.com
There is no other tool out there that could give you the amount of information that this tool does right from either the visited page or the search engine. Perfect for a quickly competitive overview. This tool will give you PageRank, cache date, domain age, backlinks in Yahoo, number of .edu links, the number of cached pages, and many other stats for any given page with a simple right click. The most amazing feature is that you can export your information directly from the SERPs to CSV.

8.   SEOmoz Ranking Checker
This tool helps you determine if you have optimized a site for country-specific search engines. SEO can be valuable for many industries if applying local or geographic optimization. Amazing tool I must say.
