Chose Agency Analytics
Agency Analytics is a great value. It offers enough tools and features that are very useful, and it's a more affordable platform than other similar tools. It is missing some key depth in both SEO and reporting, which is a shame. It does do a much better job at bring digital …

If you have a Google ads PPC campaign and then I would say this is more or less essential if you want to know what your competitors are doing. You can get very useful data out of it even if you subscribe for one month. And the pricing is very reasonable. Even if you don't use Google ads, I would say this is still useful for your SEO/SMO team since it gives you a great idea of what keywords and traffic your competitors are working on.

Cons
AgencyAnalytics
  • Would like to see the stars feature to bring keywords to the top of the report have 1 click to remove all stars that were checked off previously.
  • Would love to have a feature to track how clients are ranking for keywords; currently only shows the # of keywords ranking in the top 10 positions of Google but doesn't show the actual keywords for each competitor.
  • Would extremely love to see a feature where the keywords can be viewed/filtered by position; for example page 1 of Google only, page 2 of Google only.
  • Would love to see a keyword tool to check keyword rankings or search volume for specific keywords; similar to Google's keyword planner.

  • As with any database, their keyword database has limits, so the data returned is relative to their database, not necessarily the full picture.
  • When SpyFu database or scoring chances, the data provided can spike, thus causing confusion among stakeholders, we're reporting to.

Love this tool but would like insights from all 3 major search engines not just Google. I would also like deeper understanding of the placement for local businesses on Google Places/Maps. Insight into mobile search rankings and best landing pages per industry would also help :) Overall, SpyFu is a necessity for serious search marketers.

Support Rating
AgencyAnalytics
They are always on top/ahead of the curve. There has never been a time where I haven't had the platform work professionally when I needed it. They stand behind a top-quality product. It's easy to support something when they put hard work into development and maintenance.

SpyFu comes with a link to tutorial videos. I recommend you watch them. The software is capable of so much you really need to watch the videos and learn how to get the most out of it. When I have a question 90% of the time it's there. When it isn't, and I reach out to them, support is always quick and concise.

This is my first experience with a tool like Agency Analytics because I don't have a digital marketing background. My background is in sales, but I quickly realized that Agency Analytics is a selling point for prospective and existing clients. We also use Ahrefs and Semrush, but having access to AA is extremely valuable.

I was surprised to find I preferred Semrush when it comes to keyword research. SpyFu is great (and less expensive than Semrush), but I felt the data Semrush provided was vaster than SpyFu. I was able to get more competitors spending insights in Semrush than SpyFu. Overall, I liked the ability to use both in our keyword research for both paid and organic marketing.

Return on Investment
AgencyAnalytics
  • For a small to medium size agency, the $79/month cost is reasonable, allowing for unlimited users, 10 campaigns included, and 1,000 keywords tracked.
  • It is something we can easily build into our pricing model.
  • If more is needed, the platform can scale, allowing for more keyword tracking, more campaigns, etc.

  • Helping us track our ranking.
  • It helps solve the problem of ambiguity when it comes to Google Ads. It makes the strategy more clear.
  • You can sift through lots of different online analytics to find the information, but it takes way too long. SpyFu has it all in one place!
