Advanced Web Ranking

My business works with clients from a variety of outlets, with budgets ranging from six figures down to triple digits (not kidding). There's a TON of analytical software out there, so speaking as a guy who has worked with them all (or at least quite a few) if your client is on a budget – particularly a startup – AWR is a great program to use. They've been around for a while, the desktop version is pretty bug-free and updates in real-time, and it's budget conscious.

DeepCrawl

If you are an SEO executive, or an SEO consultant, I cannot offer an example where DeepCrawl cannot be used. It is easy to use, the results that DeepCrawl gives you, not only give you insight but can affect the way that your digital projects move forward.

Pros

  • It only costs $49/month, which is great for clients that are working with limited budgets (they're cost-conscious!)
  • Its ease of use – I've worked with plenty of cloud-based rank tracking programs before, and AWR was by far one of the cleanest and easiest to navigate. I could use it on my iPad and the user-touch interface was pretty seamless.
  • The info is updated in real-time. We were able to show our clients their live data while in meetings. It made us look good, and it made our clients feel better about the service they were paying for.

  • GUI, when you run a crawl, the response is epic. It isn't just results, the results are very easy to understand.
  • Again, as pertaining to the explanation above. If you use other crawl software, it can be difficult to get insights, whereas DeepCrawl makes it easy. You can get proper insights.
  • It is so easy to put your stamp on things. DeepCrawl gives you an option as a consultant that you might not have had before, it is your backup.

Cons

  • The ability of the program to produce dashboards in web page format. While it can do this, it saves them out as HTML files on your hard drive or cloud server, which makes it super hard to share with others.
  • The cloud version is a bit more expensive, which offers the same tools as the desktop, which I found a little troublesome and it didn't make sense to me.
  • Their customer service was a little lacking. I had a couple of general questions and I was on hold for about 15 minutes...which isn't good when you're in the middle of a busy workday.

  • DeepCrawl really doesn't have too many problems, to be honest.
  • I would only say that there is a pay per use issue, it is quite expensive. But if I am honest, it is worth every penny.

Alternatives Considered

There's a ton of competition for AWR but in all honesty, if you're on a budget, I'd advise going with this one. It gets you pretty accurate results, updates their info in real time, and all for about $49/month base price. It's pretty good software for the money that you're paying

All of the products I have used have been amazing in their own way, but DeepCrawl makes it easier to put it into visuals. Sometimes when you look at results, it can be quite difficult to get something easy to understand. DeepCrawl gets rid of that, the results are so easy to comprehend. I would recommend it to any data consultant (DC).

Return on Investment

  • It stayed within our client's allotted budget (which drives more business our way down the road!)
  • Updated information in real-time assures our clients that they get the most accurate information possible, as quickly as possible.
  • It's been only slightly detrimental to my workflow (which is one little drawback of the program) sometimes I have to enlist the help of a keyword generator (because i find the one with the program a bit lacking)

  • When you have a URL and you want to understand how it is going to work on a point of view, I don't think that there is a better bit of kit, that will give you a first view.
  • The whole idea that you need to be technically proficient is blown away by DeepCrawl. It makes it easy to understand the pros and cons of your website.
  • The good thing about this product, is that they tell you how to fix your site, it is not just a 'here is your issue' it is a how you can fix your issue.
