TOP Local SEO Tools for
2014
by The HOTH
We love these tools and use them everyday. Do you have tools that you love
that you want to add to this list? Just email tools@thehoth.com!

!

Local Specific Tools
!
WhiteSpark Local Citation Finder
This is the industry standard tool and it’s awesome. Basically you can drop in
your main kw and city, it will go out and find your competitors and see what
citations they have, rank the citation sources by DA (Domain Authority) and show
you which ones you are missing. This is the tool we use in HOTH Local.

!

Local SEO Checklist
Nice and easy checklist to make sure you have the bases covered + more.

Rich Snippet Validator (Google)
Validate that rich snippets are working on your local site.

Creates schema.org microdata for your local site.

Local SEO Quick Check (Moz)

Quickly check where you stand with citations, duplicates, errors etc.

Bluementhals Local Business Category Tool
Cool tool to get all the categories you should be in on Google Places.

!

Doing Local the right way. No cookie cutter solutions. Every campaign is
customized and researched. As close to push-button local as you can get.

!

Citation Cleanup Service
If you have incorrect or inconsistent citations, we’ll clean them up for you
manually.

!
!

Keyword Research Tools
!
!
SEMRush
SEMRush is a website research tool. You can check search engine or PPC stats
on any website, see your rankings, or your competitors rankings. I love using it
for keyword jacking. Here are 2 ways you can use this tool in just a few min:

!

1. Easy Wins Method: Put in your website URL. Under Organic Research on the
left, click positions. See what you’re ranking for on page 2, re-optimize your
pages or add links (internal or external) to boost your rank.
2. Keyword Jacking Method: Get your competitors domains and run a keyword
report on them. Sort the report by kw volume, jack their keywords and either

!

add them to your existing pages or build out new pages. BOOM.

Here’s a quick example video for reference.

!

KWFinder
Quickest keyword tool ever! This will show strength values that come from
majestic (TF & CF), & Unique linking IPs for the top 10 results, as well as PR.
Awesome. You can use this in combination with all the keyword ideas you got
from Semrush (item #1).

!

UberSuggest
This is basically a google suggest scraper. Find all kinds of long tails with this
baby.

!

Backlink Analysis Tools
!
You can check the backlinks of any site with these tools. I use them for all of the
following:

!

1. Overview of what’s going on with a site (any anomalies etc)
2. Checking for over-optimization
3. Checking competitors to see if they have any good links / trying to jack
competitors links
4. Doing research on domains I’m going to buy for my PBN

!
That all being said, these 3 tools do about the same thing but each one has
strengths & weaknesses. Here’s what I think about all 3:

!

1. Ahrefs - Best at catching backlinks. Most accurate checker.

!

2. Open Site Explorer - Most commonly used statistics for judging website
power or strength, however DA & PA metrics scale with spam so you really need
to look at the actual backlinks too.

!

3. Majestic - Best for determining websites trust / strength.

!

SEOBook SEO toolbar
This kick ass little diddy will automatically run stats for you on all the websites
you visit and put an overlay in search results if you want. This is the quickest way
to check stats as you’re browsing around.

!

Moz Bulk Domain Checker for Google Docs
Want to check a bulk group of domains? With this easy tool, you can throw a
bunch of domains into a google doc and quickly get the moz DA / PA for them.

!

SEO Analytics & Tracking
!
Google Analytics
Enough Said. I just use it on all my Money sites. I don’t use it at all on any PBN
sites.

!

Serpfox

Nice & easy tool for rank tracking. Just plop in your URL, keywords and location
and it will do all the tracking for you. They have a free plan as well if you’re just
getting started.

!

Serpbook
Similar to serpfox but with nice white label and automated reporting.

!

Penalty Research
Panguin Tool
You can connect your Google Analytics account and it will display when google
updates happened so you can see if drops in traffic match any Google updates.

!

Ultimate Guide To Google Update History
All of the Google updates + what really happened + case studies.

!

Removeem Anchor Text Over Optimization Checker
Pretty self explanatory.

!
!

Brand Building
Lock My Brand
Registers your brand name on the top social media websites in the world

!

Building A PBN

!
Expireddomains.net
Great place for checking stats on upcoming auctions.

!

Waybackmachine
You always should check what a site has been used for in the past, regardless of
how good the backlinks are. Here you can see an archive of past uses.

!

Cheap-o hosting
When building a PBN, do not use SEO hosts. Use a bunch of different hosts that
are cheap, this way you can diversify your network, IPs, and it’s much harder to
get caught. Only problem is managing this can be a bit of a pain, but most of
these are very similar. All these are cheap hosts ($1-2 a month).

Other Tools

Make sure your content is original. You can use this for articles that your
outsourcers have written for you, or check clients sites to make sure they don’t
have any dupe.
