Do you know how to get some of the billions of dollars in unclaimed government money? Millions of other Americans do, and they’re cashing big checks from the government that they don’t have to repay.

Every year the government and other organizations budget over $700 billion dollars in free money that they give away to people who ask for it. Guess what? That money is only getting bigger and bigger. As America continues to climb deeper in debt, the government is faced with providing more money to help people become debt free.

In addition just the free money in debt relief that the government provides, there is billions of dollars that are helping all walks of life for a variety of reasons. There are grants to help people buy their first homes, grants to help get professional training or for job seekers, grants to start a daycare center.

That’s because there is no limit to the number of grants you can apply for, and the pot of money is virtually endless.

When you search the grant database, you’ll see that it is so easy find $50,000 in free grant money to help pay for your home based business, and then you could turn around and get another $12,000 grant check to help finance a new home or go back to school. All you need to do is ask for it.

Free Local SEO Tools That Belong in Your Kit

What a lot can change in just a few years! When I wrote the original version of this post in January 2014, the local SEO industry didn’t have quite the wealth of paid tools that now exists, and many of the freebies on my previous list have been sunsetted. Definitely time for a complete refresh of the most useful free tools, widgets, and resources I know of to make marketing local businesses easier and better.

While all of the tools below are free, note that some will require you to sign up for access. Others are limited, no-cost, or trial versions that let you get a good sense of what they provide, enabling you to consider whether it might be worth it to buy into paid access. One thing you may notice: my new list of local SEO tools offers increased support for organic SEO tasks, reflective of our industry’s growing understanding of how closely linked organic and local SEO have become.

Now, let’s open this toolkit and get 2018 off to a great start!

For Research

US Census Bureau Tool Set

Looking to better understand a target community for marketing purposes? You’ll find 20+ useful resources from the US Census Bureau, including population statistics, economic data, mapping and geocoding widgets, income and language information, and much more.

Client Onboarding Questionnaire & Phone Script

Onboarding a new client? Reduce repetitious follow-ups by asking all of the right questions the first time around with this thorough questionnaire and easy-to-follow phone call script from Moz. Includes helpful tips for why you are asking each question. As local SEO veterans will tell you, a missed question can lead to unhappy (and costly) surprises down the marketing road. Be sure you have the total picture of an incoming client in clear view before you begin strategizing.

Location Information Spreadsheet

Vital when marketing multi-location businesses, this free Moz spreadsheet will ensure that you’ve got all the info at your fingertips about each locale of a company.

*Pro tip: When working with large enterprises, be certain that the data you’re inputting in this spreadsheet has been approved by all relevant departments. It’s really no fun to find out six months into a marketing campaign that there’s internal disagreement about company NAP or other features.

Local Competitive Audit Spreadsheet

Now we’re really getting down to brass tacks. When you need to look for answers to the perennial client question, “Why is that guy outranking me?”, this free Moz spreadsheet will help you document key competitive data. The end result of filling out the sheet will be two columns of stats you can compare and contrast in your quest to discover competitors’ ranking strengths and weaknesses. Need more guidance? Read my blog post in which I put this audit spreadsheet into action for two San Francisco Bay Area Chinese restaurants.

Manual GeoLocation Chrome Extension

Watch Darren Shaw demo using this tool to show how a local pack changes when a user virtually crosses a street and you’ll quickly understand how useful this Chrome extension will be in approximating the impacts of user-to-business proximity. Works well on desktop devices.

Our industry still hasn’t fully recovered from Google removing the Local Search filter from its engine in 2015, and I still live in hope that they will bring it back one day, but in the meantime, this extension gives us a good sense of how searcher location affects search results. In fact, it may even be a superior solution.

The MozBar SEO Toolbar

Local businesses in competitive markets must master traditional SEO, and the free MozBar provides a wonderful introduction to the metrics you need to look at in analyzing the organic strengths and weaknesses of clients and competitors. On-page elements, link metrics, markup, HTTP status, optimization opportunities – get the data you need at a glance with the MozBar.

Google Advanced Search Operators

Not a tool, per se, but the best tutorial I have ever seen on using Google advanced search operators to deepen your research. Dr. Pete breaks this down into 67 steps that will enable you to use these search refinements for content and title research, checking for plagiarism, technical SEO audits, and competitive intelligence. Be totally wizardly and impress your clients and teammates, simply by knowing how to format searches in smart ways.

Google Search Console

Apologies if it already seems like a no-brainer to you that you should be signed up for Google’s console that gives you analytics, alerts you to serious errors, and so much more, but local SEO is just now crossing the threshold of understanding how deeply connected it is to organic search. When playing in Google’s backyard, GSC is a must-have for businesses of every type.

BrightLocal’s Search Results Checker

This popular tool does an excellent job of replicating local search results at a city or zip code level. In some cases, it’s best to search by city (for example, when there are multiple towns covered by a single zip code), but other times, it’s better search by zip code (as in the case of a large city with multiple zip codes). The tool doesn’t have the capability to recreate user-level results, so always remember that the proximity of a given user to a business may create quite different results than what you’ll see searching at a city or zip code level. I consider this a great tool to suss out the lay of the land in a community, identifying top competitors.

Offline Conversion Tracker Form

Give this handy Whitespark form to anyone who answers your phone so that they can document the answer to the important question, “How did you hear about us?” Submitted information is saved to Whitespark’s database and tracked in Google Analytics for your future reference and analysis. For local businesses, knowledge of offline factors can be priceless. This form provides a simple point of entry into amassing real-world data.

For Content

Answer the Public

One of the best-loved keyword research tools in the digital marketing world, Answer the Public lets you enter a keyword phrase and generate a large number of questions/topics related to your search. One of the most awesome facets of this tool is that it has a.CSV download feature – perfect for instantly generating large lists of keywords that you can input into something like Moz Keyword Explorer to begin the sorting process that turns up the most powerful keywords for your content dev and on-page optimization.

Buzzsumo

Another great content inspiration tool, Buzzsumo shows you lets you enter a keyword, topic or domain name, and then shows you which pieces are getting the most social shares. For example, a search for wholefoodsmarket.com shows that a highly shared piece of content at the time of my search is about an asparagus and broccoli soup. You can also sort by content type (articles, videos, infographics, etc.). Use of Buzzsumo can help you generate topics that might be popular if covered on your website.

OSHA Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) System Search

Another interesting resource for brainstorming a wide pool of potential keywords for content dev consideration, OSHA’s SIC search returns big, comprehensive lists. Just look up your industry’s SIC code, and then enter it along with a keyword/category to get your list.

USPS Look Up a ZIP Code Widget

Working with service area businesses (SABs)? Note the second tab in the menu of this widget: Cities by zip code. When you know the zip code of a business you’re marketing you can enter it into this simple tool to get a list of every city in that zip. Now, let’s not take a wrong step here: don’t publish large blocks of zips or city names on any website, but do use this widget to be sure you know of all the communities for which an SAB might strategize content, link building, brand building, real-world relationship building, social media marketing, and PPC.

Schema/JSON-LD Generators

Rather than list a single tool here, I’m going to take the advice of my friend, schema expert David Deering, who has taught me that no one tool is perfect. In David’s opinion, there isn’t currently a schema/JSON-LD generator that does it all, which is why he continues to build this type of markup manually. That being said, if you’re new to Schema, these generators will get you started:

https://webcode.tools/json-ld-generator

http://microdatagenerator.com/generator.html

For Citations

Moz Check Listing

I can say without bias that I know of no free tool that does a better job of giving you a lightning-fast overview of the health of a local business’ listings. On the phone with a new prospect? Just plug in the name and zip and see how complete and accurate the company’s citations are on the sources that matter most, including the major local business data aggregators (Acxiom, Factual, Infogroup, Localeze) plus key platforms like Google My Business, Facebook, Yelp, YP, and more.

Literally at a glance, you can tell if inconsistencies and duplicate listings are holding a business back. It can also be used for competitive analysis, defining whether a clean or messy citation set is impacting competitors. The value of the free Check Listing tool becomes most fully realized by signing up for the paid Moz Local product, which automates aggregator-level listing management even at an enterprise level with hundreds or thousands of listings, and offers options for review monitoring, ranking analysis, and more.

Whitespark’s Local Citation Finder (free version)

The free version of this cool tool from our friends at Whitespark will give you a sense of how the paid version can help you discover additional places, beyond the basics, where you might want to get listed. It also analyzes your competitors’ citations.

For Reviews

The Hoth’s Online Business Review Checker Tool

You’ll have to sign up, but this free tool gives you an overview report of a local business’ reviews on a variety of platforms. This is a smart thing to do for every incoming client, to gauge reputation strengths and weaknesses. The state of a company’s reviews indicates whether it has an offline problem that needs to be corrected at a real-world structural level, or if its core challenge is a lack of strategy for simply earning a competitive number of positive reviews.

Free Review Monitoring

Need to know when a new review comes in on a major or industry-specific review site? Signing up for this free tool will send you email alerts so that you can respond quickly. Watch the little video and pay attention to its statement that the majority of unhappy customers will consider visiting a business again if it quickly resolves a complaint. Good to know!

Review Handout Generator

Another freebie from Whitespark in partnership with Phil Rozek, this very simple resource lets you enter some business info and generate a printable handout your public-facing staff can give to customers. Active review management has become a must in even moderately competitive geo-industries. How nice to have a physical asset to offer your customers to get more of those reviews rolling in!

Google Review Link Generator

Google’s local product has gone through so many iterations that finding a link to point consumers to when requesting a GMB review has been foolishly difficult at times. Whitespark helps out again, at least for brick-and-mortar businesses, with this easy widget that lets you enter your business info and generate a shareable link. Unfortunately, SABs or home-based businesses with hidden addresses can’t use this tool, but for other business models, this widget works really well.

For social

Notify

Whenever your business gets mentioned on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn, Reddit, and a variety of other platforms, Notify uses Slack or HipChat to send you an alert. By being aware of important conversations taking place about your brand, and participating in them, your business can achieve an excellent status of responsiveness. Social media has become part of the customer service environment, so a tool like this comes in very handy.

Followerwonk

A free trial is available for this app which acts as serious analytics for Twitter. If Twitter is a favorite platform in your industry, definitely give this resource a spin. Understand the characteristics of your followers, find and connect with influencers, and use data to improve your outreach.

Character Count Online

I use this ultra-basic tool all of the time for three specific tasks. Some social platforms either have character limits and don’t always have counters, or (like Google Posts) truncate your social messaging so that only a limited snippet appear at the highest interface. Just plug in your text and see the character count.

And, of course, you’ll want a character counter to be sure your on-page title tags and meta descriptions read right in the SERPs.

My third use for this counter relates to content marketing. Most publications have character count parameters for the pieces they will accept. Here on the Moz Blog, we’re not into length limits, because we believe thorough coverage is the right coverage of important topics. But, when I’m invited to blog elsewhere, I have to rein myself in and be sure I haven’t galloped past that 800-character limit. If you’ve found that to be a problem, too, a character counter can keep you on-track as you write. Whoa, horsie!

So, what did I miss?

If you’re saying to yourself right now, “I can’t believe this totally awesome free local SEO tool I use every week isn’t included,” please share it with our community in the comments. One thing I know I’d love to find a free solution for would be a tool that does review sentiment analysis. Paid solutions exist for this, but I’ve yet to encounter a freebie.

My criteria for a great tool is that it makes work better, stronger, faster… or is that the intro to The Six Million Dollar Man? Well, Steve Austin had some amazing capabilities (and a cool 70s jogging suit, to boot!), and I’m hoping you’ll feel kitted up for success, too, with this list of free tools in the year ahead.

Google SEO Tools: Free Ways To Improve Your Page Rank

Using Google SEO tools for your business is a great way to increase exposure without breaking the bank. Before you go investing thousands of dollars to improve your business website's ranking, you should consider using free Google SEO tools to your advantage.

Search engine optimization is an important aspect of modern marketing. Proper on and off page SEO can really do wonders for your business. Let's take a look at some of today's most useful Google SEO Tools.

Google Analytics

Google Analytics is a must for anyone using search engine optimization. I highly recommend that you install this plugin into your blog / website.

Google Analytics allows you to keep a close eye on your visitors' activity. The program's library of numbers and statistics allow you to identify the sources of your traffic, which aspects of your website are working well, and which areas are in need of improvement.

If you can learn to use Google SEO tools like analytics, you do not need to invest a ton of money in search engine optimization assistance. Using this tool † properly † will ensure that your business and website are progressing appropriately.

Google AdWords Keyword Tool

A major part of search engine optimization is keyword research. In fact, without proper keyword research, your optimization campaign will assuredly fall short.

In order to improve your page rank and accrue the traffic your business needs, you will need to target keyword phrases (or popular search terms) that are valuable. These keywords obviously need to be related to your business niche.

The ideal keyword phrases are † high † in traffic but low in SEO competition. Needless to say, it is impossible to identify quality keywords without a tool.

Luckily, Google AdWords Keyword Tool is also free. This tool is definitely among the most popular Google SEO tools available. Feel free to use this program to find keywords for both SEO terms or pay-per-click advertisement.

Google Webmaster Tools

While each of these Google SEO tools is valuable and useful in its own right, these programs are increasingly beneficial when used together. When using the keyword tool and analytics, I recommend also using Google Webmaster tools.

This specific set of tools allows you to do a number of things. First of all, Google Webmaster tools allow you to see how Google is indexing your website's content.

It will alert you if there is an issue as well. Additionally, you will be able to see which search terms are driving traffic to your website. This will help you get a better idea of ??which kind of keywords to target.

Using this Google Webmasters tool and the Google AdWords Keyword tool together can be a potent combination. Consistently reviewing the statistics provided to you by these Google SEO tools will be nothing but beneficial.

If you have the right tools, increasing your exposure online is simply a matter of effort. The concept of search engine optimization is simple, guys.

Studies clearly show that a high page ranking is exponentially more fiscally advancing for your business. Be sure to get the ball rolling with some effective Google SEO tools.

SEO Hints and Tips and Free SEO Tools

Do you realize that if you manage your website, SEO tools, and pay-per-click tools, you can literally have as many leads as you want from your website? I assume that a website should convert approximately 5% of the viewers to doers, taking some kind of action that you want them to take. So, all we have to do is make sure the website does convert viewers to doers, and then we make sure we've got the right amount of traffic arriving at the website. All quite manageable. Today, we're mainly talking about how to get traffic to your website through Search Engine Optimization, SEO.

Here is a list of the best tools I've found to do SEO and a quick review of some of the top issues for SEO. Most of these tools are either free, or can be tried for free before buying

Most search engines are looking at your site to find relevant search words. How relevant determines your temporary search engine position.

How do they determine relevancy? Although every search engine has slightly different rules, here are some of the key ideas. Keep in mind, they could change tomorrow. Search engines are continuously changing because just as soon as they determine how to find the relevant search words on your site, someone finds a way around their rules. Then search engines change the rules again.

A key word usually has to show up in each of the following areas of your site, with a density that falls within a range that search engine would like to see. They also like to see the words at a certain position in that area, usually at or near the beginning of these areas:

Areas search engines look at:

1) Meta tags (title, description, and keywords) (Note: I'm told that most search engines do not consider meta tags any longer, but I keep seeing my keywords pop up from the meta tags).

2) Body text of the site

3) Headlines

4) Alternate text behind the graphics

5) Links, and link text

How do you choose the right keywords?

Here's a big warning: Consider what people are looking for, not who you are or what your product is. For me, I would rather be found for "small business help" than for my company name, The Leader's Perspective. Obviously I want people to find me, if by chance they are looking for me by name, but just think about this:

  • There are not more people in the world looking for "small business help" or "business help" than could possibly be looking for my name. Those looking for my company name are those that I have probably met personally and sent them to my site. That's a small number, in comparison to the number of companies on the internet looking for help that do not have any idea who I am …. yet anyway. Here are some tools to find the right keywords.
  • Google Keyword tool – (go to Google and look up Google Keyword tool) enter keyword (s), and Google will return the number of times that keyword was searched for in the last month. It will also show you other variances of that same keyword and the number of searches for each variance. Use this to brainstorm keywords. (NOTE: I've also discovered this is a VERY useful tool to use before sending out any kind of marketing.
  • Wordtracker is another decent tool. Now, this is an even better tool. This one contains a thesaurus as well, so it will show lots of other ways people have been searching for the keywords you've typed in. This tool also has a way of measuring the RIGHT keyword that is even better than Overture for Search engine optimization.
  • Google reports the number of searches last month for that keyword, so you can find the words that have the greatest number of searches. However, Wordtracker, reports the greatest number of searches for the words with the LEAST competition.
  • When you are doing SEO it will not do you any good to go after the words that have been searched for the most if there are millions of competitive sites. It's just not likely that you COULD get a page 1 ranking among millions of sites. So, Wordtracker helps you find words that have been searched for ENOUGH to give you traffic, but at the same time have the least competition. They provide their own proprietary ranking that finds the best search words that you are likely to get a search engine position for. Just make sure that the words you end up with from that search actually are words that someone would be looking for to find you. Hint: I use Overture to find the greatest number of searches and use that for pay-per-clicks, and use Wordtracker to find the right search words for Search engine optimization. Here are some other useful tools.
  • Tools that help you Learn Search Engine optimization while guiding you through the process. Internet Business Promoter will provide not only an analysis of many of the search engine sensitive stats, but will give you almost a step-by-step how to fix your site. Although this has ended up down the list, this is probably the number one greatest tool to learn search engine optimization. http://www.axandra.com
  • Link Popularity Search engines tend to give websites that have more external links from other websites pointing at them a higher search engine ranking. Here is a free tool to track your link popularity, and to check our competition as well. http://www.checkyourlinkpopularity.com .

SEO – Free Search Engine Optimization Training

SEO or Search engine optimization is one of the most important aspects when it comes to getting your website noticed. SEO can be tricky when you are first starting out, however that's what I'm here for. I have created a getting started with SEO training that will help you figure out some of the ins and outs of SEO to hopefully take some of the mystery out of it for you.

The first thing you will need to do is to figure out what key words you would like to "target." I suggest you come up with about 10-15 strong keywords to target for each page of your website. You do not want to use to many, you want to stay focused on one key word and just use different variations of that key word to be sure to get the most out of your SEO efforts. I would recommend using Google keyword Tool.

This tool is great for optimizing your site and generating good keywords. First off its free, and it shows the number of times a keyword had been searched in the past month. Not only that but it also shows you different variations of the keyword that you searched so you can get several good ideas from using this tool.

It is also very important that when writing your keywords you do not repeat the same keywords over and over again. You need to make sure you are using different variations of the keyword. If not the search engines will more than likely flag your site for spam. For example if you are targeting SEO, you may want to use SEO, SEO marketing, search engine optimization, search engine submission, search engine optimizer, SEO tools, SEO quests, etc.

The most important place to have your keywords is in your Titles, be sure to limit your title to 15 words or less including your top keywords.

Example: SEO – Free Search Engine Optimization Training.

Now you will also want to use meta tags, several search engines do not use meta tags anymore but you do not want to skip this step, every little bit helps. When entering meta tags you will need to have a little experience with HTML. If you do not own okay I will provide some examples.

When using meta tags there are 2 main things to remember, you will need a meta description, as well as your meta tags. You will also want to make sure you place all of your tags between the and the
tags on your page. In your meta description you will not want to use more than 200 characters. This is a description of your page that the search engines will pick up, for example:

Example:

With meta key words you can go a little more in detail however you will not want to use more than 1000 characters in your meta tags. META keywords are not used as frequently by the search engines as they used to be, but there is no reason not to use them. Be sure to separate each keyword or key phrases with a comma. Remember that each of your keywords should also be present at your page for higher ranking, and to avoid being caught for spamming.

Example:

If you need help generating your meta tags I suggest using a Meta Tags Generator. When using this tool it will ask for "Meta Charset" for most sites you will use "Universal UTF-8"

After you have decided on your keywords that you are going to use, you now need content. Having relevant content on your site is crucial to SEO, and getting picked up on search engines. If your page has nothing to do with your title or your keywords you will not get a high ranking position in any search engine and you will probably be flagged for spamming. Good SEO, and learning how to optimize your site takes time. Do not rush it, take your time and put some real thought into what you are going to say and what keywords are you going to use, this will definitely pay off in the long run.

I have provided you with the basic knowledge of SEO on how to optimize your new site. If you follow what I have shown you, you will increase the traffic to your site and you will get a better ranking on search engines.
