  • SeoSiteCheckup runs through a fast audit of your site, checking for proper tags and surfacing any errors that might come up.

14. Free Audio/Video Bloging Tools

  • Upload Audio files to Youtube : Audioshop.io. There is a limitation for 1 hour audio  per month and 50 files per day. But you can create multiple youtube channels to bypass this restriction. It will be great tool to test your audio file's copyright. TunesToTube is ok but not able to upload multiple files at the same time. 
  • My Suggestion: Google Chrome plug in - Nimbus Screenshot . Only thing I think it needs to improve is to have ability to record desktop and webcam together. Now, it can only record browser tab with webcam at the same time. 
  • Google Chrome Plugin - ScreenCastify - It can record Google Tab, Desktop Screen and Camera. The recorded file will be saved as webm format, and if you pay , it can be converted to MP4 format through this plug in. But it is not necessary, you also could use Chrome Plugin Video Converter (offered by movieconverter.info) to do this job. 
  • My suggestion: https://recordscreen.io/ - easy to use and no software installation required. record your cam video , audio and screen. Not able to pause or edit your recording.  no screenshot function. 
  • My suggestion: https://www.flexclip.com/ - Lots template, no watermark, no limitation on export. 
  • My favorite: Free 3D Intro/Outtro Creation Site - Panzoid
  • Fast, free screen recording - Screencast-O-Matic - It can record both WebCam and Screen.  It can be used under non-administrator local/domain account. This design is specially useful when you do not have admin account on your pc.  It does require to install a small software before it can record screens and cameras. There is a watermark at the left bottom corner. Other than that, it works pretty well as a screen recorder
  • FlashBack Express - Record Screen Software. 


15. Free Business Email Hosting
