Here I will show you the main tools that I use.

Some of these are affiliate links. It doesn’t cost you any extra, but it gives me a bit of money to spend on candy, beer & women. However, I actually use every single item on this list and can personally vouch for them.

Note: If you are a beginner, then don’t go mad and get all of these right away. If you are a beginner, scroll down to the bottom for a list of the ones you need to have.


I will go into more in depth analysis in the main post section and detail what they can do & why I use them. But for now, this is a list:

  • Easy Azon
    • Easily insert Amazon affiliate code into your website, including some great extra features such as add straight to cart, which extends your cookie for up to 90 days!
    • I am now using Thirsty affiliates. The basic features are free and you can buy the extras…I am just using the free version whilst I test it out – check out the cool “Harry recommends”!I used Easy Azon on another affiliate site and it is a disaster to upgrade and caused all sorts of mischief on my site.
  • Rank XL
    • Whilst not really a tool, (it’s a course), this is probably the best course or SEO related thing I have ever spent money on. It is a bit pricey but the information is really amazing. Keep your eyes peeled for a full review.
  • I Need Articles
    • Honestly one of the best article services around. I wouldn’t class them as the most amazing content creators, but they are good enough and have already made article database to choose from. They also have the best rewriting service I have very used which is both quick, accurate and the writers are ablt to essentially create brand new articles!

      Another great part is that you get spin ready articles with each order so that you can reuse them however you wish.

  • Long Tail Pro
    • Hands down, the best keyword research tool out there. Others swear by other tools, but I personally can vouch for this one as I use it every day! Note: get the Pro / Platinum version for the Keyword Competitiveness results.
  • Thrive Themes
    • Whilst the actual themes are not so great, (IMHO), the conversion tools they offer are second to non. Create landing pages, CTA’s, sign up forms, and many other really great things to help turn your traffic into money.
  • The Hoth
    • Great way to get a starter level of links pointing to your site. If you want to go down the PBN route, you can also use it to diversify your anchor text, thus leaving your main money keywords free for your more powerful links.
  • Aweber
    • The money is in the list! I hear this all the time. I am not really into email marketing right now, but I use Aweber, ready to start collecting when I am ready. Nice, clean and easy to use. About $19 USD per month.
  • Bluehost
    • The host with the most. OK, not really, but all of my websites are hosted with them and I like their customer service. For me that is the deal breaker, for example, you have to phone GoDaddy if you have an issue, but Bluehost has a live chat feature and they really help.
  • PBNFox, otherwise kown as Digital Point PBN 
    • Where I got my first 5 PBN websites made. I rate them as they are very good, but I know hoe to make my own now so have no use for them. Great for beginners.
  • Easy Blog Network
    • The only PBN host I will ever use. Full Stop. In fact, I wish that I had found them sooner, it would have saved me a lot of hassle!
  • Keywordtool.io
    • Brilliant to get all of the Google Auto Suggestions. It also reports what questions real people are asking about your keyword which is absolute gold dust.
  • Ubersuggest
    • The uglier sister to Keywordtool.io, but just as good. It doesn’t hold anything back and will  give you endless auto suggestions.
  • Google Keyword Planner – (Just type into Google)
    • Good place to start and great to analyze your competitions main page keywords, but much better alternatives such as Long Tail Pro.
  • Fiverr
    • Great for:
      • logo’s
      • content (cheap & OK)
      • video
      • making info products more beautiful
    • Not great for:
      • links
      • anything SEO
  • Source Market
    • Like Fiverr, but for SEO. You need to keep your wits about you though because there are gems, just hidden among shit. I use it pretty much everyday.
  • Yoast SEO Plugin
  • Genesis Framework
    • The engine that this blog runs on. Simple, aesthetically pleasing and most importantly, a rock solid foundation to build upon.
