If you are serious about developing a competitive and lucrative website then you need all of the affiliate marketing tools of the trade. Here is a list of the best affiliate marketing tools which I believe that no affiliate marketer should ever be without.
Best Affiliate Marketing Tools
Not only is Market Samurai the best overall and completely free keyword tool out there (see my video on how to do keyword research with Market Samurai), but it’s got loads of other features. It’s an SEOer’s dream tool because it finds links and content for you and your blog and it enables you to find out practically everything about your major competitor’s sites so that you learn exactly what it takes to break into the top 10 in Google for your keywords of choice.

SEO Quake is the best of the internet browser plugin based internet marketing tools for your internet browser of choice. It displays real time SEO information about whatever web page you’re looking at. Market Samurai will tell you a lot of the same things, but this is much quicker if you just want a quick look at whatever site your browsing’s Alexa rank, number of links according to the different search engines, etc.
