10 Free and useful webmaster tools
Lee Dodd has written a post titled “10 Ways to Become a More Efficient Webmaster” where he shares 10 free tools to help you “work smarter and not harder”.
My favourite tools in his list are:
- The “Keyword Typo Generator” which is great for your PPC campaigns
- The “SEO Firefox Plugin“, which I’ve been using for a while now, and I think is probably the 4th most used FireFox extension I have.
- The “Search Engine Rankings Tracker“.
To add my own list of favourite free webmaster tools:
This let’s you edit CSS and HTML on the fly, which is a MAJOR help when trying to test and debug your blogging (or other) template. Here are some of the features:
- Inspect and edit HTML
- Tweak CSS to perfection on the fly, without having to save and reload a webpage
- Visualize CSS metrics and see how much screen real estate something is taking
- Monitor network activity and see what files are causing your page to load slowly
- Explore the DOM
A DEFINITE must.
Similar to the EarnersForum Keyword Tracker above, but it’s the one I’ve been using for about a year, so I know it, and use it OFTEN.
