Authoritas (formerly Analytics SEO)

This tool is particularly well suited to SEO teams that don't require a great deal of precision or specialization. For example, this tool provides a very user-friendly way to do keyword research, but might not be well suited to someone that needs exact search volumes or keyword difficulties. The tool offers a great bang for your buck, but isn't the most capable tool out there. Still great!

The Search Monitor

It's well suited when it comes to analysis of competition, as well as ad copy improvement. It's good with page recommendations, keywords analytics and backlinking management. It might be not the best tool for keeping data all in one place and task management.

Alternatives Considered

Authoritas (formerly Analytics SEO)

If price isn't a factor, Analytics SEO doesn't stack up very well to competitors like Majestic, Moz, and SEMRush. If we consider pricing, however, I would say that this tool is one of the best, if not the very best, out there. This tool is extremely powerful for how much it costs.

The Search Monitor

Search monitor gives better visibility on what competitors are doing for a bulk of keywords, while SEMRush lets you just see how strong the competition is for a specific domain/keyword.

Return on Investment

Authoritas (formerly Analytics SEO)

  • Provides great capabilities for the price.
  • Awesome for SEO beginners.
  • Not amazing for SEO experts.
Nathan Richardson | TrustRadius Reviewer

The Search Monitor

  • Positive on the side of getting information for our clients
  • Restricted by the number of keywords. We ran out of the allowed volumes and couldn't use it for all clients we had.
