BrightLocal

If you are a local business owner or marketing agency catering to local businesses, BrightLocal is a must have software. It has everything you need to track your local marketing efforts and to identify opportunities to make improvements, all at a very reasonable price point. You can also create nice looking reports to send to clients which are simple to create.

DeepCrawl

It is useful for our clients to help identify where there are any issues and what improvements should be made. We are able to use all the counts of each elements to work out which to prioritise and create an action plan for our clients. If a team isn't able to implement any of the insights from within this tool, then it probably wouldn't be worth the money

Pros

BrightLocal

  • When we use BrightLocal's citation building service, I know that we're getting quality citations done right. Their staff will email you with any questions and always double check the information before creating inaccurate citations.
  • I love that BrightLocal is very quick about making changes when requested. For example, if we can't find a city on the drop-down list, you can chat them and they'll add it. Or if a report is pulling incorrectly, they'll re-run it within a reasonable timeframe.
  • BrightLocal has a lot of different reports that are easy to send to your clients. You can even add them to a web-viewable dashboard so that your client can simply bookmark a link and view their reports when they please.

DeepCrawl

  • The primary Dashboard is pretty excellent—not too much stuff to look at, just the main issues and a hierarchical breakdown of the site structure
  • I love the Broken Links tab—this is a super simple way to find what's broken so you can fix site circulation issues
  • The indexation tab is really nice too—no need to surf through thousands of URLs in a spreadsheet to assess the index

Cons

BrightLocal

  • Up and down rankings were not always right on with the local search, but only off by one or two spots
  • It felt like it was only used for local SEO, and I know there are more features, just never got to them.
  • Didn't seem useful for every single client in the way Ahrefs or Spyfu did
Jordan Comstock | TrustRadius Reviewer

DeepCrawl

  • DeepCrawl really doesn't have too many problems, to be honest.
  • I would only say that there is a pay per use issue, it is quite expensive. But if I am honest, it is worth every penny.

BrightLocal 7.5

Although their customer support has always contacted me, they have not always been helpful. Many times I've had reports or information disappear with them telling me they had no record of it, even when I had reports that the information was in there. There are times when their system did have bugs and the support was able to help me there. Overall, the support staff is there but they cannot always do much and need to wait for their development team to get back to them which often takes a long time.

I liked the platform overall. It is a good crawler. I no longer use because it's duplicate of what I get with seoClarity. I did not give it 10/10 because sometimes I had a hard time isolating site areas that I wanted and didn't get much technical support from Conductor on how to use the tool

Alternatives Considered

BrightLocal

Thryv reached out to me about 3 weeks before signing up with BrightLocal. While all of their features were impressive, there were only about 3 features that I would have used. Thryv wanted $200 per month for their service, which I found to be way overpriced for what I was wanting to use it for. I selected BrightLocal because it had the features I wanted at a lower price and then add ons. After using BrightLocal for a week and speaking with Becki, a customer service executive, I have discovered more features that I would use on BrightLocal than on Thryv.

DeepCrawl

DeepCrawl is a great tool when compared to other similar solutions. What sets it apart from the competition in my experience with it, is the convenience of the cloud. In addition to having a multitude of tools faced by a digital marketer in today's landscape from analysis of site backlinks to competition analysis.
