Agency Analytics

Agency Analytics is one of the best website rank tracking tools that I have used so far. I feel like it shows a great amount of insight into the fluctuation of ranking over time. This tool is extremely helpful for B2B marketing agencies where you need to be able to show progress to your clients. Also, the ability to see the results in a live SERPs page gets rid of the trouble of showing a client the live result when you're not next to each other.

BuzzStream

If you are running a real sizable link building campaign go for Buzzstream. It will make your project so easy and you will be able to repeat it over and over again. With the features and capabilities that it can offer, I highly recommend Buzzstream for larger and smaller organisations that are looking to run digital PR campaigns. It is a quite cheap item for the amount that it offers.

Pros

  • I love the keyword "pool" system that Agency Analytics uses. We purchase a certain number of keywords (6,000) and then we can spread those across our accounts as we see fit. If we need more keywords for another company, we can remove them from an existing one without losing them. That also means that we can change keywords, add keywords, and remove keywords instantly from reports without waiting 30 days for them to re-run.
  • The customizability of the dashboard is new and awesome. We are able to create dashboard templates to use for our clients that shows exactly what we want it to. It also allows us to add text and links to explain certain aspects that might not be readily understandable to people outside the industry.
  • I also really appreciate the ability to send clients their own logins to the site. We add clients in as users to view their own reports at any time.
  • Agency Analytics runs results all day long and allows you to hover over the result to view more information as well as click to view the result in the SERPs.

  • Keep track of websites and your pipeline. It keeps track of all of the items in a pipeline, where they are at, what stage, what level, how well they are performing online and so on.
  • Send emails, and emails in bulk with automatic personalisation.
  • Manage your campaigns through projects. Send later-reminders, reply reminders, send reminders and so on.
  • Email performance reports, so you can do A-B testing for your campaigns
  • Contact info discovery, so you only need to put a website in and it brings up all of its information for you.
  • Link Monitoring.

Cons

  • I wish that the monthly emailed reports were customizable like the dashboard and more interactive for the customer.
  • I think that there are some other things that would be neat to add, but aren't something that is "missing". For example, it would be awesome if we could have preset permissions for adding users to reports instead of needing to un-click everything we don't want the client to see.

  • The search function needs to be more accurate in returning results when searching for existing prospects the platform only display exact match results - www.websitename.com vs websitename.com. In reality, the two websites are the same prospects.
  • Customer service assistance needs to be more instantaneous when seeking out help a response can take up to 24 hours.
  • Importing large CSV files of websites takes time as well.

Buzzstream is great to help identify sites to get links from, and it makes this process so efficient, easy and personal to all, the ones who are using it and the ones that are receiving. Flawless navigation, good outlook, 10/10!

Alternatives Considered

We stopped using RavenTools because the report rendering was ridiculously slow.

Honestly, haven't used anything else for link tracking that has been nearly as successful as Buzzstream. While many other SEO tools offer help for link building, they don't track links per se. So I would say Buzzstream is one of the key tools for a digital PR that has SEO intentions. If you are running a very small campaign, just use Excel. But Buzzstream with other SEO tools, like Majestic or MozPro will create a powerful, well-rounded campaign.

Return on Investment

  • Very affordable at $99 a month. While we don't charge clients for it we only offer it for our premium, full-service accounts.
  • It makes the work we do "official" and substantiates the work we do.
  • I feel it legitimizes our SEO work.

  • It serves as a platform for one employee to find prospective contacts for another employee to do outreach.
