My favorite SEO Tools
#1
Site Explorers:
MajesticSEO - Commonly used by 'domainers' and PBN Builders as the TF metric is important in PBN considerations.
Ahrefs - Best all round site explorer if you're just looking to check links.
SEMRush - The best for general research.
OpenSiteExplorer - PA/DA etc. Useful!

Keyword Research:
LongTailPro - Most use this over Market Samurai.
Ubersuggest - Free tool that should be used in conjunction with LTP
SEMRush - Great for getting competitors keywords
Google Keyword Planner - Can't be beaten for some uses and allows the use of spintax.

SERP/Keyword Tracking:
SERPBook - Most commonly used.
Microsite Masters - A few guys here use this.
SERPWoo - If you're serious about data this is for you.

Scraping:
Scrapebox - Everyone should have this!
Gscraper - Faster than scrapebox and the ease-of-use is better, customer support isn't great though and there are some features SB has that Gscraper doesn't.

Link Building:
GSA SER - I don't know of anyone in the group using anything else right now.

Spinning:
WordAI Turing - This provides the most readable content from a spinner, uniqueness tends to be better too.
The Best Spinner - WordAI Turing is the industry standard for serious SEOers, but I know a few who prefer TBS.

Content Creation:
Kontent Machine 3 - Creates good content for spinning. Not suitable for money site content.
Article Builder - Creates good content for spinning. Not suitable for money site content.

Site Crawlers:
ScreamingFrog - When crawling a site this is my go to and many others also.
Xenu Link Sleuth - Not as good for this purpose as ScreamingFrog IMO, but can also be used for broken link building, audits etc.

Code Editors:
Notepad++ - Useful and does the job.
Sublime Text 2 - More features, better GUI than Notepad++

PBN Management:
RankWyz - Quite common and allows proxy implementation, yet it's not as secure as BHC' PBN Manager.
FCS Networker - Not tried personally, but people here use this.
RankerX - New tool!

Analytics:
Google Analytics - Standard, but keep it away from any non-legit sites.
Clicky - Good analytics solution for slightly black hat sites and all PBN sites if you need it.
Metrica Yandex

Misc:
Dropbox - Cloud storage for sync between machines.
Evernote - Keep notes in one place, web clipper etc as well.
Trello - Organization tool and collaboration tool.
OneDrive - Excel online etc.
BuzzStream - Link building outreach solution.
Blekko.com - Search engine used by outreach focused SEO's
Google Trends - Good for checking trends alongside keyword research.
Knowem.com - See what social sites brands are on. Also good for expanding presence / link building your own brands.
BrightLocal - Good for local SEO and showing you where to get citations.
