Brian Dean from Backlinko has produced an exhaustive list of 131 of the best SEO tools available. The best part of it is that he has actually tested all of them, and rated each one. (Quite an undertaking). He told me personally that he spent 90 hours doing the research for the post. (See the comments below the post). There is no way I have spent anywhere near that amount of time on reesearch for any post I have ever written. Some of the tools he reviews are paid or minimum cost, but many of them are also free. I have used some of them personally, and will be trying out a number of them over the next few weeks.
Brian is one of those bloggers that writes these epic posts that hundreds of people comment on, and is viewed by tens of thousands of visitors to his site. His site Backlinko has an Alexa rating of 6,863 That is pretty impressive in and of itself, but he has managed to accumulate over 2,600 backlinks to his site from sites such as Wikipedia and Huffington Post.
I guess you could say he is well qualified to answer questions about backlinking and SEO.
