Alexa

Alexa is perfect for PR agencies tracking analytics for their client reporting -- especially if media relations is a core competency for them. We use Alexa almost exclusively for our media relations efforts and showing the reach of our media coverage, the potential of a media opportunity, and more to our clients.

Siteimprove

Siteimprove is the best value for the cost. While there are other systems that give you similar feedback, they cost a lot more and their interfaces seem dated. Siteimprove is constantly adding new features or improving their existing ones. Their customer support is fantastic and their online training and documentation is excellent.

Pros

  • It sources website analytics for most websites we're interested in tracking.
  • Each website's dashboard is easy to understand and pull numbers from.
  • We can get very nitty gritty with the numbers we're pulling or keep it simple by just pulling basic website visitor stats.

  • Integrates with many content management systems

Cons

  • Although it is easy to build an Alexa skill, in the end there is still some Java script coding involved. More instruction on that could help users finish building a skill. I had to spend a day looking up what things are for the final step. It was a bit time consuming

  • The reports can be overwhelming if not properly filtered

Alternatives Considered

We used to use Compete until it changed what it does entirely. Alexa was the best option after we did research. It is more granular in the numbers it provides too, which is good for what we do.

We have used or tested other tools that get installed on a computer or that are hosted online, but none of them offer the features that come with Siteimprove. TotalValidator Pro will check your site for accessibility issues, but it is a manual check and there is no historical reporting. I can;t remember the names of the other online solutions, but even if they offered similar features as Siteimprove, they were all very expensive .

  • I got exposed to the Web development environment of Amazon web service by learning Alexa

  • Allowing us to address accessibility concerns ensures that EVERYONE can access our content - and that is good for business.
