    Wordpress's software is a must to use if you wish to start blogging. To use it, you need a domain name + web hosting service.

    Plus many Wordpress plugins for SEO. e.g: All in One SEO Pack. Social media sharing buttons - e.g: AddThis.

    For keyword research you may want to try Long tail pro. Free tools like Keywordrevealer.com also works well.

    If you're looking for additional tools for blogging. There are a lot of tools that you can use and one of them is by using email marketing softwares like MailChimp and MadMimi to manage email newsletters and promote posts. You can also use social media management tools online like Hootsuite and Buffer to schedule social media posts in advance. You can use it to promote your website's content through social media in a more organize way.

    About SEO tools, you can use Google Snippet Preview, to help you visualize and optimize what is displayed to searchers. For keyword research you can use Wordstream, and also Copyscape for you to make sure that your articles are 100% original content.

    You will be able to use some tools for free, but you can also upgrade your membership with them and enjoy all the features that each tool offers.

    About three years ago I purchased Word Press Mage. For the first couple years I didn't do too bad. However, now I find that the software is not as good as it used to be. I did pay close to $1000. Also, the support is not good as it used to be. I'm currently creating blogs by hand and do use this tool sometimes to do the initial installation of the blog, i.e. WordPress blog, then I manually update the blog. Just be careful not to spend too much money on auto creation blog software, because Google doesn't really like auto blogs from my experience.

    The biggest money in publishing is to "own your biggest advertiser."

    In other words, sell something of your own. Your service, your book, your whatever.

    Supplement with ads, etc.

    Good SEO? Focus on good social/sharing, assuming your blog has a personality.

    Focus on increasing backlinks, you can either pay someone for doing that or you can do that yourself.

    Backlinks are important for your ranking. So build quality links. Don't use tools to build links, Just make it natural, also diversify the links by various techniques. Use tools like Majestic SEO to watch your backlinks profile. All the best..!

    I suggest you buy SEO tools from SEOMoz. It's kinda expensive but if you have the budget for it, its really good. Try Social Media tools but hootsuite is free, take advantage of that. Scrapebox is a very handy tool as well.

    Better to prioritize your needs before buying tools. Do you need tools for blogging, SEO, or traffic generation?

    My plan on my blog would be a mixed news of different niches, likes games, gags, news,photography and many others. maybe hiring some article writers to write reviews and post on my blog. Is is worth it if i just hired someone to make articles for me regarding on my niches? and also planning to buy GSA search engine ranker too.

    Any suggestions on my plan? thanks in advance
