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.

Netpeak Spider

[Netpeak] Spider is a great service for:
  • Checking and monitoring big websites or e-commerce projects for technical errors on regular basis
  • Creating custom formulas for calculation of internal page ranks and building a tree view with this information
  • Get reports that include metrics for every page (performance, inbound and outbound links, indexing status)
  • Create reports that include all metrics from external SEO services like Serpstat or Similarweb for every single page of your website
It's very useful software for SEO or marketing agencies that have a lot of projects to work with, but might be overkill for small projects and companies.

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.

Netpeak Spider

  • Crawling data and metrics from every webpage on website (page structure, titles, meta tags, Google GTM & Analytics presence)
  • Building tree with calculation of internal page ranks
  • Get a report with different technical errors (404 errors, broken links, duplicated content, )
  • Performance report. Check out your page load time, server response time, extract metrics from Google Page Speed Insights
  • Checkout different metrics from external services like Serpstat, Similarweb (page ranks, keywords, traffic, etc.) for single page

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

Netpeak Spider

  • You can buy a subscription only for month or more, you can't pay for 1-2 projects
  • No version for MacOS
  • It's only desktop software, online version is not available

Support Rating

BrightLocal

BrightLocal 7.5
Based on 4 answers
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.

Alternatives Considered

BrightLocal

The price was cheaper at BrightLocal, although I have had to pay extra for things, but I like the flexibility that an al cart type program brings. I would say that Synup is easier to use and much simpler. Yext is more expensive and requires constant enrollment, but maybe the most comprehensive.

Netpeak Spider

We choose Netpeak Spider because:1. Can buy a monthly subscription and have unlimited number of websites to check.2. Price. It's affordable, especially when you have not only one project.3. Frequent updates. With every update functionality is expanding (latest update for example brought a lot of new integrations).4. Quality of reports. They are very detailed and have everything we needed for our work.
