Every 6-12 months, I like to review the tools I use and do some research to see if I'm missing something important or can do more for me.

What's currently on your tool belt? Rankings, local tools, citation building tools/aides, analytics tools, etc.

A lot of the tools mentioned are great! In addition to Screaming Frog for on-page issues I also you Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager from Microsoft. IIS lets you perform site analysis' and find some issues that Screaming Frog may miss. When performing analysis' on sites I always will run them in both Screaming Frog and IIS.
