Rank on Google's first page in 3 months
Everything needs maintenance. Vehicles, gadgets…hell, even our body needs health checkups to stay fit and healthy. So, why would it be any different for websites?
I hear you.
That’s exactly why we do site audits. To search for errors, potential threats and eliminate them before they could affect the website and cripple it.
So, how do we do it? SEO audit tools.
In this blog, we will be discussing the 10 best SEO audit tools available in the market. Let’s dive in.

One of the most widely used SEO tools around the world and my personal favorite. It has above 40 intel tools to help a digital marketer with everything. From keyword research and competitor research to content optimisation and social monitoring it’s rich in features.
But one of the biggest cons of having it is the cost. It’s relatively costlier and lately they have made certain features like top ranking pages locked away even with a paid subscription.
The tool is not entirely free but it provides a 7-day free trial. You can check out the pricing plans from the image given below.

From the infamous Niel Patel comes Ubersuggest. The tool has a wide variety of options from keyword research, competitive analysis, backlink analysis, rank tracking, etc. And the SEO Analyzer feature in it is one of the best SEO audit tools present.
The tool is free but the features available are limited and can only be used for 3 queries per day. So, if you are using it wisely, they do offer a 7-day free trial and their pricing plans are as follows.
Your requirements differ from the business you are running. You may have just started your business or are thinking of scaling or perhaps you have already reached the enterprise level and are trying to solidify your position by leveraging digital marketing.
Whatever may be the case I personally suggest you carefully scrutinize the tools I have listed here for you and choose one that is perfect for you.
If you ask me, then I would suggest those who are scaling up to choose SEMrush, Ahrefs, Oncrawl or Screaming fog. And for startups Suitejar, Ubersuggest or Deepcrawl.
PS – Google Search Console is a must no matter the type of business stage you are in as it’s not only free but also provides some deeper insights into how your website is fairing in Google.
