How to get a free moz pro account?
As a SEOer, you may need a tool like moz, majestic, ahrefs, and semrush, sooner or later. These services are very expensive. In most cases, you’ll make no money by using these tools. Having a trial is important before you find a way to milk from these paid services. Unfortunately, they all request you to input a credit card to get a free trial. Among there services, I found moz is more generous than others. You can get a free moz pro account more easily and you can use it for free for 30 days, unlike 7-day trial of other similar services.
