What SEO tools do you use as a developer?

Mary MacQuoid asked in General

I am working on a project that should be SEO-friendly at launch. I have only basic knowledge in SEO and will be grateful for any of your advice


Hello this is Gulshan Negi
Well, I use Ahrefs and other SEO tools but I like Ahrefs most because it is very easy to use and gives lots of facilities like growing search traffic, web optimization and help to boost your SEO skills. I will recommend you to use Ahrefs.


I recommend Semrush


In addition to Google Keyword Planner, I've also found that tools like Ahrefs and Moz can be super helpful for analyzing backlinks and tracking keyword rankings over time.


Sure, here are some tips to make your project SEO-friendly at launch:

Do Keyword Research: Before starting any project, do keyword research to find the most relevant and high-traffic keywords for your project. Use tools like Google Keyword Planner, SEMrush, or Ahrefs to help you identify the best keywords to target.

Optimize On-Page Elements: Ensure that your website has a clear structure, easy navigation, and optimized meta titles and descriptions, header tags, and image alt tags. Make sure the content on each page is unique and valuable to the user.

Use Clean and Searchable URLs: Use simple and meaningful URLs that are easy to read and search engine friendly. Use hyphens to separate words in your URLs instead of underscores or spaces.

Mobile Responsiveness: Ensure that your website is mobile-responsive and provides a good user experience on all devices. Google now gives preference to mobile-friendly sites, and more people are accessing websites on mobile devices than ever before.

Page Speed Optimization: Optimize your website to load quickly. Use tools like Google PageSpeed Insights to identify areas that need improvement and make necessary changes to improve site speed.

Remember, SEO is an ongoing process, and it takes time to see results. But by following these tips, you can ensure that your project is set up for success from the start.
