Ultimate SEO – Focus On Strategy, Tools And Community Builds

Over the last month I’ve poured a bit of time … (everything that my clients didn’t get) into UltimateSEO.org and by chance UltimateSEO.net which was unregistered.  UltimateSEO.org was the focus because previous to my use someone else used it and built it up to a domain authority of 36.  Its taken me over six months […]

52 Tools And Counting: Mostly Free SEO Tools – I Actually Use

SEO Tools – The Ultimate List

There are actually a couple lists of tools on this page.  Check them out and come back for more in the future.  What you wont find in this list is a tool that has asked or paid or communicated with me concerning the list.  This is an honest collection of what I want to keep links too.  If you want to be on the list feel free to maybe comment?  If I find it useful and use it I’ll add a link.  Otherwise maybe someone else will like it from your comment link and they can make there own list. 🙂

Over 50 SEO Tools, Mostly Free

As I go through my SEO day I type the same addresses over and over to get to a collection of useful tools.  So I decide to post them as links once and for all, for my own benefit but also for others who may come here for a backlink indexer but find there isn’t one … but there is a list that includes one of the best.

A quick highlight of some of the tools and how I plan to build on this simple list.  First, I’ll address the second thing I noted…I plan to build the list out from its initial 52 to hopefully a hundred with the promise I’m not just adding crap tools or duplicate tools over and over.  Now as a highlight of some of the best tools on this list I’ll put some details in the coming weeks in a section below the list. There is also another mini list that includes tools for text and html below the main list.

More Tools – Text and HTML Free Tools

I’ve turned 40 today so I figured I’d make a top 40 list of tools and guides. The first one I’ll note I didn’t use for Web Design, I just used it to make a choice for me.

Web Site SEO Visualizations

Web Site SEO Visualizations

I’m a visual person as I believe most of us are which is why I am fascinated by these images of sites that I have visualized.  Green dots are working pages, blue dots are redirects and orange dots are pages that don’t exist or are forbidden.  The connecting lines represent link structure of a site.  The larger a dot the more traffic it receives.

Hostname On cPanel / WHM Server Resets To Project Name On Google Cloud Fix

So you made a WHM server on Google Cloud and before you get to use it suddenly its broken?  I feel your pain.  Not sure when this started but it seems Google Cloud auto writes over the hostname.  Usually not an issue but cPanel seems to rely upon this entry to the point when you type a FQDN like louisville.data502.com it changes to rubbish in a redirect and the site can’t be resolved.

cPanel Has A Fix.

You can see it from their site or I have the steps below.

To configure VPS deployments, many cloud hosting providers use the dhclient script, which includes the configuration of the instance’s hostname.

The dhclient script may not preserve the locally-configured hostname, so hosting providers use scripts to work around this issue. For example, Google Cloud Platform Services™ uses the google_set_hostname script.

The workaround scripts may interfere with WHM’s Change Hostname feature (WHM >> Home >> Networking Setup >> Change Hostname), which causes hostname configuration issues and a locked cPanel & WHM license.

The solution

To resolve this issue, you must create a dhclient exit hook script to set the hostname properly.
Create the set-hostname.sh file with the following contents in the /etc/dhcp/dhclient-exit-hooks.d/ directory, where hostname.example.com represents your server’s new hostname:

You can also create the file with the following command, where hostname.example.com represents your server’s new hostname: Note in the code below you should be sudo and hostname.example.com will need to be changed

mkdir -p /etc/dhcp/dhclient-exit-hooks.d/ && echo -ne ‘#!/bin/shnhostname hostname.example.comn/scripts/fixetchostsn’ > /etc/dhcp/dhclient-exit-hooks.d/zzz-set-hostname.sh && chmod +x /etc/dhcp/dhclient-exit-hooks.d/zzz-set-hostname.sh

OR You can make it in a drawn out 3 step process.

  1. #!/bin/sh
  2. hostname hostname.example.com
  3. /scripts/fixetchosts

That should keep the name as you intended.

And finally I want to say check out Ultimate SEO. Its a great site.

Free SEO Tools From A Variety Of Sites

To often you are unable to really utilize an SEO tool found on Google, they may require your contact information, only run once then require a subscription, most seem to be more a sales tool than an SEO Tool. Here are some tools that I find useful and that minimize the bull crap that can come with the most popular SEO sites.


https://smallseotools.com – lots of tools and I mean a lot. They offer 20 queries at no cost if you sign up for a free account….

Just a few of the tools available… seo toolsseo tools

 

 

 

 

 


Neilpatel.com – site offers an audit and makes general recommendations. I use it as a baseline preliminary test.


Domain Authority Checker – Domain authority represents how authoritative a website is on a scale of 0-100. It is calculated by Moz, an SEO software provider. The score is largely based on the quality of links going to a website, as well as the MozTrust and MozRank scores.

domain authority

I want to remind everyone that the url you type technically is a completely different site so as you see in the comparison of multiple addresses that lead to the same site there is variation.

My personal site will rank low … it is very new.


Moz Free Tools – several tools, requires registration then limited to 10 queries a day or so.
