  • My Favorite SEO Tool. Ever.

    SEMRush is my go-to tool for keyword research, Paid positioning research, and individual keyword campaign management. I use their API for reporting in Google Sheets, I use their backlinks tool, and it always works exactly the way it's supposed to.

    Pros : The site audit and project management tools make reporting a piece of cake. If you use Adwords, or in any way want to understand your competition when trying to rank for specific keywords, this tool is a must-have.

    Cons : The backlink tool could be a bit more robust, but as it is fairly new, I would guess that it will be improved in the near-future.

    A great all-rounder with lots of insightful data

    SEMrush is one of the leaders when it comes to tracking the performance of a website, and also has a whole lot of useful insights to discover new opportunities, particularly when doing keyword research. Simply enter a keyword that you think is important in your industry and SEMrush will provide data around how often the keyword is used in search, and estimated CPC if you were to bid for it in Adwords. But the best bit is that it also gives you similar keywords that have high search volumes in order to help you make a decision on which keywords to target. This is also available across several other countries. You can also use SEMrush to track your visibility for paid or organic search, along with estimated traffic for a website over time, so it's one that I check regularly. SEMrush have built a community around the product, with a strong blog and some interesting discussions on Twitter via the #semrushchat hashtag.

    Pros : Nice clean dashboard overviews with graphs and charts to give a quick overview of a website Lots of other useful tools to check everything from backlinks to competitor research free version that is good enough to pull out some useful information Affordable, with plans starting from under $70 per month

    Cons : The site you want to check has to be fairly well established before you can get much useful data, so not very useful for small or new websites

    Great Tool for the technical user

    SEMRush is a powerful and feature rich tool for the technical marketer or SEO data nerd. It's in depth, robust, and full of actionable metrics. They do a good job of supporting their user community. Don't be fooled by the "SEM" in the title. While it does have a seamless interafce to AdWords data this tool goes well beyond SEM and into on-page, technical, and content assestment. The depths of SEMRush is almost without equal from a competitor.

    Pros : Depth of data Great community culture Agency friendly

    Cons : Lots of data means a more complex interface Could be overwhelming to those with light hearted data minds

  • SEMRush is the way to go!

    SEMRush Use Cases and Deployment ScopeBeing able to have reports that multiple teams can access is a key piece of our SEMRush usage. There isn't much data modification needed, if at all, before sending over to higher level associates and decision-makers. Always evolving, SEMRush masters one element of the search world before moving onto the next. 

    Pros : Keyword Research - a crucial piece of SEO and SEM, SEMRush makes this much easier with their easily navigable screens of data.Reporting - very user-friendly

    Cons : Support for subdomains. We have a parent company, but our territories website is housed on a subdomain. This makes it very hard to track keyword rankings, ppc campaigns etc for our "company" as opposed to the national campaigns.

    Our Web Content Firm Loves SEMRush!

    SEMRush Use Cases and Deployment ScopeOur company began using SEMRush to help us better serve our clients needs for better Internet exposure through higher search ranking and social media reach. Our core team uses it extensively to research relevant keywords, assess content performance, and develop site analysis for new clients considering our services. It has been a great tool for showing clients the progress they make by trusting our company with their web content development and social media marketing.

    Pros : SEMRush produces beautiful, easy to read analytics and data sheets that we use to customize reports for our clients. This allows us to do competitive analysis between similar clients to produce case studies of success, a great marketing tool for our company.The reports are easy to understand for non-technical clients like ours. We deal primarily with lawyers, doctors, and professionals who know they need Internet marketing but don't completely understand the jargon. SEMRush strips out the preten

    Cons : It would be nice to have a branded dashboard with our logo to link our clients to so they can track their site's growth in real time without us having to show them reports all the time.

  • Trusted by so many users around the world, SEMrush is a good service for improving SEO and SEM strategies as it offers rich data and analyzing tools to help people know about themselves and their competitors. Making good use of this service, it should be easy to come out an optimization plan which is worth the cost.

  • What do you like best?

    Well I use it mostly for keyword research to find more keywords that my client should be focusing on that they may have missed by looking at what their competitors are doing. However I think my favorite thing is the ability to find quality back-links that the competition has that my client does not have.

    What do you dislike?

    Some clients we work with have sites that are relatively new or have never really ranked for anything and in those cases SEMrush shows no data for those clients. Unless the site really is brand new I'd hope to find at least some pertinent information on the site even if it's not a lot.

    What do you like best?

    SEMrush is one of the most important tools we use for our digital marketing strategies. The number one thing I like about SEMrush is the competitor analysis - being able to see what keywords my competitors are targeting and to see what keywords are driving qualified traffic to my competitor's sites provides me with great insight and an overall advantage in the space.

    What do you dislike?

    It's hard to trust some metrics provided by third party tools. I use it for trends and analysis not specifically for hard numbers that I can allow me to quickly draw conclusions.

    What do you like best?

    What I enjoy the most about this tool is how the dashboard is constructed. It's put together in a logical sequence of how you would most likely use the tool. Just like someone searching the web, you start with a broad term to see what results you get. Sometimes there are some extremely interesting results that take you on a different path than you had originally set out on.

    What do you dislike?

    This is just a personal thing, but for my tastes, the buttons are a bit too big. I typically use large monitors with small icons and fonts since I like to have a lot of information on my screen. Other than that, I don't have any complaints.

  • One of the things I really like about SEM Rush is that it has a very defined purpose and specialises in a key area of online marketing. In a nutshell SEM Rush is all about maximising Google traffic and as such its toolkit helps with Keyword Research, Google Adwords Research & Competitor Analysis in these areas.

  • SEMRush is a great alternative to running manual ranking reports, and should be considered by every small business owner or agency still running Webposition or Advanced Web Ranking. It’s not the Taj Mahal of SEO tools, but it has a lot of great data that search marketers can use to optimize their SEO campaigns, and for a price that small business marketers and smaller agencies can afford.

  • SEMRush is definitely a service I recommend if you are serious about SEO and getting free traffic. There is no point ranking in the top 10 if nobody actually searches for the keyword phrase. You want to find and target keywords that are already proven to produce results.
