Cloud File Storage

Need some extra space to store your content? if you don't want to slow down your website or your hosting plan doesn't offer much space then maybe the options below might be the solution.

Amazon Cloud Drive

You probably didn't realize it, but a big part of Amazon's business is cloud storage and 'cloud computing'. The free account offers 5GB of storage.

Box

The free package gives you 10GB of free space . This isn’t quite as rosy as it sounds, though, due to the fact that Box limits files to 250MB. This is markedly lower than the 10GB limits of OneDrive and Dropbox, and 5TB with Google Drive. 250MB is more than adequate for most documents and spreadsheets, even hi-res photos, but it's going to be a problem for a lot of videos.

Dropbox

Dropbox is one of the only services to offer clients for Linux and Blackberry, alongside the usual Windows, Mac OS X, Android and iOS standards. There's an official Windows Phone app too. The free Basic account comes with a paltry 2GB of storage. You can gain 1GB more by setting up a mailbox account and you'll get 250MB just for taking a tour of the Dropbox basics, too. Enabling the camera to upload feature will gain you 3GB, and automatically backup your smartphone/tablet photos to the cloud.

Google Drive

In much the same way as OneDrive links into Microsoft products and iCloud to Apple, Google Drive is at the heart of the various online services that Google currently offers, and is definitely one of the best cloud storage services. You get 15GB of free space when you create a Google account - or link to an existing one. In fact, you already have a Drive account if you use Gmail, Google Calendar, or even YouTube.

Mediafire

The free account comes with 10GB of space, but this can quickly be expanded by various easy tasks. All in all, you can boost the free account up to a very respectable 50GB of space. There are a few signs that the basic account is free. Files are limited to 200MB, and you’ll see ads when sharing or downloading any files from friends.

Mega

Mega puts its security credentials front and center. Unlike some of its rivals, this service provides encryption in every part of the process. So anything you send to the cloud is encrypted locally, on-route, and on the destination server. The standard free package affords a whopping 50GB of space.

Microsoft OneDrive

OneDrive uses Microsoft’s Modern UI design. Lines are clean and you can select the boxy style or a more traditional file tree. Folders and files can be created on the web, including Office and OneNote formats thanks to tight Office Online integration. new users will get 5GB of free storage. Office 365 subscribers will be limited to 1TB.

FAQfox is a question scraper tool. I like it that you can choose the websites that FAQfox scrapes. So if there’s a particular site that your target audience hands out on,let's say Reddit, for example, you can ask the tool to only search that site.

FreshKey

FreshKey is one of the better keyword research tools I tried for this list . The tool generates lots of keyword ideas by scraping Amazon, Bing, eBay, Google Market and more. While most tools require a monthly subscription, FreshKey is a very reasonable one-time fee of only $49.

GrepWords

A solid, reasonably priced keyword research tool with an excellent question scraper. It's a great feature called “Divergent” shows you what time of the year certain keywords tend to spike. For example, if you want to see which snowboard keywords tend to perk up during winter, GrepWords will show it to you. The same with Halloween and keywords related to “costumes”.

HitTail

HitTail does two things very well.first of all, it shows you which keywords tend to bring in the most traffic for you which helps to get around the “not provided” problem. Second, it shows your keyword suggestions. I was impressed by their keyword suggestions because they showed me keywords that I never saw in other tools before.

Imforsmb.com's Bulk Keyword Generator

If you do SEO work for local clients such as plumbers and gardeners, this tool can help you find local keywords that potential customers search for. For example, if you tell the tool that your client is an electrician in Miami, it will hand you 40-ish keywords that customers might use in Google.

iSpionage

ISpionage is a keyword research tool that’s similar to SEMRush. Yes, it has some SEO-focused features. But it’s definitely geared towards PPC peeps. The “Share of Voice” feature tells you the potential organic traffic a page gets across Google, Yahoo, and Bing.

Jaaxy is an easy-to-use keyword research tool that specializes in spitting out lots of closely-related keywords. Very handy

Keyword Snatcher

This tool probably gives you more keyword ideas than any other tool on the market because it finds keywords from a bunch of different places, like Ebay, Amazon, and even Yahoo. The one downside to this tool is that it doesn’t show you how many people search for the keywords that it spits out. So you need to manually upload the keyword list into the GKP to get search volume info.

Keyword Tool Dominator

A decent keyword research tool. The tool works just like SEMRush: enter a domain name into the tool and it will show you a list of keywords that the site ranks for. But I think SEMRush is far and away the best tool for the job.

KeywordTool.io

An excellent keyword research tool that scrapes Google Autocomplete results. Although Google said they would be “restricting” access to Autocomplete, KeywordTool.io seems to have found a way around it. I just tested the tool and it brought back a bunch of excellent keyword suggestions just like it always does.

SECockpit

SECockpit is probably most advanced keyword research tool on the market. Yes, you enter a seed keyword and get suggestions like any other tool. But SECockpit can do so much more than list out a list of related keywords. It can also spit out low competition keywords. It can even show you keywords that get a minimum CPC in Adwords or show you keywords that have YouTube, Ebay or Amazon results on the first page. SECockpit also scrapes the “Searches similar to…” from the bottom of Google’s search results. This can often unearth keywords that you’d otherwise miss.

SERPStat

SerpStat is an excellent keyword brainstorming tool. Although it doesn’t give you search volume for keywords, it does hand you a huge list of unique keywords that you can upload into the Google Keyword Planner.The “Questions” feature gives you questions that people tend to ask around your topic. Very helpful.

Soovle

Soovle is a free tool that pulls autocomplete suggestions from a handful of different sources like Google, YouTube, Amazon, and Wikipedia.

SpyFu

I hadn’t used SpyFu in a long time. And I was pleasantly surprised to find that the classic PPC tool has been upgraded with a ton of new SEO-focused features. In fact, their keyword competition feature was one of the best that I came across lately. Check out their “Keyword Kombat” feature which uncovers keywords that a few of your competitor’s rank for. If those sites have similar authority to you, then it stands to reason that you can leapfrog all of them with some amazing content and link building.

Suggestion Keyword Finder

A surprisingly helpful free keyword brainstorming tool. I don't know for sure how it works, but it spits out quite a few unique keywords when I tested it. Make sure to check “Level 3” so that you get access to the largest list of keywords.

Try out the “Keyword Niche Finder” as it mashes a bunch of keywords together. When I tested this feature I noticed a handful of keywords that weren’t in any of the other keyword research tools I tried.

WordTracker

WordTracker has its own internal index of keywords. Why is this important? Well, it means you can come across long tail keywords that the GKP simply won’t show you. WordTracker also provides organic first-page competition data.Use the “Search for this Keyword” gadget as it uncovers long tail variations of a given keyword. Repeat until you’ve found the long tail keyword you want to use.
