If you want to cover a topic in entirety and from the angle of a reader, you should really go for it.

Read full review Pros 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.

Didn't seem useful for every single client in the way Ahrefs or Spyfu did Read full review UI Content Editor Headings at Glance Read full review Support Rating
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 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

and Frase may seem alternative to one another but we are using both of them in our workflow for different purposes. While
is best for Topic Modeling, Frase gives you edge with competitive analysis like Headings, Questions and so on. So yeah some of their features overlap each other but as I told earlier, we are using both of them in complement to each other.
