Honestly Speaking, all these tools have their own features, benefits, analytics, usage and popularity. Not only being a writer but being a user as well my personal recommendations is SEMRush because it has something extra which all other tools I don’t think have. 

If you are new to blogging or anything for which you need these tools for keyword research then free tools are fine in the beginning but once you grow(which I really want you to do), then you definitely need paid ones to know your competition because all the free ones will not be able to provide that proper analytics which the paid ones do.

If I left something or any other which you have in your mind, then please comment down to share your knowledge with us.    

NAMASTE 🙏 ! Have a nice day!  🙂
