5 Must have tools for every Blogger

Hello bazookas, what's up? Today we will talk about some essential blogging tools. When it comes to the best, the list is never-ending. There are many marvelous tools available on the web. Hence, it is quite challenging to narrow down the entire list into top five. Anyone who is blogging, can't imagine the world without these tools. So, here are the five hand-picked tools that everyone should have.

1. Grammarly

Probably the best writing enhancement tool on the web. It can detect 250+ grammatical errors, polish your writing by giving word suggestions and plagiarism detection. Plagiarism detection helps you to ensure, that contents of your post are 100% original. While the free version offers limited options, the premium version is highly recommended as it adds up a lot more functionality.
The premium version of Grammarly provides advanced error detection, plagiarism detection, and vocabulary enhancement. It also lets you use Grammarly in MS Office.

The free version of Grammarly isn't that efficient, but the premium version can do miracles. If you are using the free version of Grammarly, then it is recommended to use it with the combination of Polishmywriting and Paperrater.

2. SEOquake

If you are using Blogger as one of your blogging platforms, then SEOquake is a great plugin for you. I know that it is nowhere near like SEO by Yoast, but it is surely a great alternative. It is available as Google Chrome extension; hence, it is quite easy to integrate it into the browser. SEOquake provides information about page rank, Google index, Alexa rank, HTML tags and many others. SEOquake is also available on different browsers like Mozilla Firefox and Opera.
I'll recommend you to use this plugin in a different browser as it will slow down your browser.

3. Prourls

Prourls is not ideal for everyone, but it is surely a life saver for those who are using affiliate marketing (especially Amazon) on their blog. It lets you merge different affiliate account into a single link. As a result, when a visitor clicks on a link from another country, Prourl will redirect him to his local shopping store i.e. to or
Everyone should give it a shot. Highly recommended!!

4. Google Keyword Planner

Finding SEO optimized keywords is the first step to writing quality posts and making your presence in Google search results. Google Keyword Planner is unquestionably the best free keyword tool available on the web. Google Keyword Planner gives you an idea about long tail keywords by providing search volume for each keyword.
Another great alternative to Google Keyword Planner is Keyword Tool.

5. Google Analytics

Last but not least, it is Google Analytics. Probably the best tool to monitor traffic on your website/Blog. Google Analytics is a free website analytic service that tracks and reports website/blog traffic.
