It is lightweight, very efficient and can be integrated in WordPress as well. When organizations want to optimize their content online, Squirrly SEO is probably the best option. It shows you exactly what needs to be improved on your page and makes suggestions. Moreover, the Focus Pages feature scans your pages and provides you with a probability of your ranking for the specific keyword.
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.Incentivized

Up and down rankings were not always right on with the local search, but only off by one or two spotsIt 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 didIncentivized
Separate the marketing emails from the knowledge based emails.Fix it so the plugin just works... like Yoast does.Get live chat.
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.Incentivized
Whilst no live chat, you do get an answer.
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.
It just works even a no tech like me can figure it - takes a while to learn but worth it for sure
