How are the Free SEO compared to the paid ones
Until this year, Bing Webmaster Tools was a non-contender. They did a massive revamp and put a lot of effort into their system, and today it is quite useful for a lot of people. Prior to 2020, their tool really didn't have a voice and was more just an interface to upload an XML file and update your Bing Listing for the business. They didn't really provide much in the way of a tool to use.Also, I find it interesting that lots of people are listing Google Search Console but nobody has mentioned Bing Webmaster Tools which actually gives just as much SEO related info and error reporting as Google does and which I actually think does it better.
Bing isn't really used much where we are from although I wish it was just something to kind settle down Google's monopoly, as I'm understanding here you are using the bing tool to assist with SEO on Google? That would be interesting because bing isn't Google they are direct competition so doing something like giving clear guidance on SEO which can hurt Adwords isn't really a problem for them if not the opposite. PS I would totally believe they are ore accurate Google skews dataI'm curious how we are defining 'SEO Tools' here, that's such a broad definition that it could include just about anything.

I think you made a good choice I have my finger in both pies but hosting wins by far - Dec 33 killed so many agencies and it will happen again and again because google hates SEO it wants you to use AdWords. They've already started trying to middleman the hosting industry.MOZ is also good name in the SEO industry. I remember there were also free tools like ninja marketing popular in old times. Don't know what happened to them because didn't followed SEO path and opted for hosting industry.
