    I do get this question often, and when you have been in search engine optimization as long as I have (at my 1st SEO gig we had to check our company keywords in search engines manually) I have reviewed a lot of SEO management tools in my past.
    In order to simplify this list, I have categorized these tools based on 4 different elements of SEO Management:

    Keyword Research:
    - Google Keyword Tool – https://adwords.google.com/o/KeywordTool
    - Google Trends – http://www.google.com/trends/
    - KeywordSpy/ SpyFu – http://www.keywordspy.com/
    - Good old’ fashion peeping – Looking through your competitors’ websites for keywords

    On-Page SEO:
    - SEO Yoast Wordpress Plug-in- http://yoast.com/wordpress/seo
    - SEO Doctor- https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/seo-doctor/

    Off-Page SEO:
    - Buzzstream – http://www.buzzstream.com/
    - SEOBook Firefox Add-on - http://tools.seobook.com/firefox/seo-for-firefox.html
    - Foxy SEO Tool Firefox Add-on - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/foxy-seo-tool/

    Keyword SERP Tracking:
    - Advanced Web Ranking (AWR) - http://www.advancedwebranking.com/
    - OpenSiteExplorer (OSE) - http://www.opensiteexplorer.org/
    - SERPTrends SEO Firefox Add-on - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/serptrends-seo-extension/
    - CCleaner - www.piriform.com/ccleaner

    These types of tools come and go daily, so if you have any recommendations, please add them!

    I use Ahrefs regularly to view link profiles. I primarily use the New/Lost Links Tab and the list of links to sites organized by anchor text. Ahrefs isn't cheap ($80/month to $500/month), but it's very useful.

    I use the SEOquake plugin for Firefox and Chrome. It will show you certain SEO parameters (that you can set in preferences) on your toolbar when you visit a website.
