Hey Everybody! :)
I'm updating an old list of free Local SEO tools (wow, this was written before there were nearly so many paid solutions in our industry!) and I wanted to reach out to this community to see if there are any freebies you're still regularly using. I have a small set (Blumenthal's category tool, Answer the Public, Moz Check Listing, SmartyStreets etc.) that remain on my high-use personal list. Anything cool you would add? Maybe something new from the past couple of years, or something you don't think people generally know about?

I appreciate any input, and hope everyone here has a great Thanksgiving week!

There's an almost-free tool inside of SEMrush that most people miss: an "instant SEO assessment" tool that you can use on your website as a lead generator (if you believe in such lead generators). SEMrush is far, far from free, but this little gem seems to be almost like a freebie thrown in there with all the other good stuff.

The Chrome extension works but it's a bit clumsy to use because your have to set the locale by moving a pin around on a map, not by just entering a location using a city name or zip code. There's definitely a lot more ease of use with the BrightLocal tool.
