BrightEdge

Brightedge is the benchmark platform for keyword research, bar none. Beyond that, their customer and in our case agency support is unparalleled. I've never worked with a vendor or partner with this much invested in the continued use and training of their product. Our customer support team is truly a partner in our business, and in invaluable as such. Regarding new business, not only has Brightedge literally referred clients to us, but they go above and beyond to help us win new business while trusting us to recommend, sell, spec, and implement their platform with the right amount of support.

Clearscope

Our company has been implementing it for a little over 2 years, it really is a platform we trust. It has helped us increase our customer traffic and improve marketing content, despite the fact that its price is a bit high. This really does not affect the efficiency of our company at all, it helps you create a deep search for keywords, allowing your organization to create featured content, this is a tool that will help your team to increase the content made, creating a better workflow.

Cons

BrightEdge

  • The storybuilder feature isn't anything outstanding. I feel like I can get the same type of data and format from Google Data Studio.
  • I feel like the Hyperlocal feature is still very junior compared to other features. It provides you good insights, but you have to set all the data fields before you can get a picture as well as it doesn't really give you an idea of how you can improve.
  • The mobile SEO solution is a good concept, but it needs some tweaks to be better, especially when building out a mobile story builder. Some of the data isn't simple to read and the mobile keywords functions don't also account for voice searches.

  • The cost of the product is high, but it will certainly help in creating better marketing content for your organization.
  • The features and functions are excellent, there is nothing else that I dislike or feel like I need to improve.

I would renew, as I don't feel there is a product out there that would have the impact on our SEO efforts as effectively as BrightEdge. It provides the information I need and integrates with other tools like Google Webmaster Tools, to truly have the depth of information that makes their suggestions for SEO changes so valued.

Easy-to-use and intuitive design make using the BrightEdge platform a joy. Yes, I have familiarity with it and know where to go but there are definitely not a ton of extraneous bells and whistles or unnecessary tools which is part of the brilliance of their UX. Sometimes I get hung up on where keywords and keyword groups are under settings but it is typically because I am moving too quickly, and not because they've moved it.

Working in a large company with limited internal resources for SEO, BrightEdge has been incredible! The tool itself gives you everything you need and MORE but my BE team I work with has been like an extra arm to my internal team, always there to help in any way possible

For the most part it was seamless. The load time of clients was a little long, but otherwise was quite easy.

Alternatives Considered

BrightEdge

We were using agencies for this work in the past and we were not having the feedback and help that we had been expecting from them. We were just paying money with getting nothing in return. We decided to bring this in-house and because of a past relationship with BrightEdge we turned back to them and dove right in. This has been the best decision we could have made. While it does take time and has added responsibilities to our day, we now have total control over changes and fixes to our SEO strategy.

Clearscope

We were previously using MarketMuse in our department and the performance was not up to the mark, it was not providing us the service which we require. So we had to change it with Clearscope and finally, we were able to get the work done with this tool. It is one of the best SEO tools in the market.

Return on Investment

BrightEdge

  • We have seen a small increase of keywords ranked on Google since we implemented BrightEdge.
  • There has been very little ROI that we have been able to tie to BrightEdge.
  • There has been very little impact on our business objectives that can be attributed to BrightEdge.

Clearscope

  • It has been an unbeatable tool that offers our organization to improve content on a daily basis through excellent keyword analysis functions to create better content.
  • It has helped us create a better work flow, generating greater customer traffic.
