    Pros
    • The real-time data unmatched and Buzzsumo is continually improving their tools and dashboards every year (we've noticed that their team listens to suggestions and often implements new features based on how our industry is evolving).
    Cons
    • The price is a little steep for us. We are a small advertising agency and have a lot of tools to consider to improve our efficiency. We just wish it was a little less expensive.

    Screaming Frog

    Screaming Frog tracks the crawl level, internal links, outbound links, title tags, and meta descriptions of the pages it crawls. It also adds HTTP status codes, title tag length, meta description length, H1, H2 tags and lengths, and canonical tags. Many of these elements are also broken into their own tabs at the top so that you can easily focus in on problem areas. You can right-click on any URL for many more options. The program is definitely valuable to anyone who is looking to gauge factors regarding SEO. However, if you are not a web designer/admin, you're going to lack an understanding of the information it provides.

    Pros

    Cision

    • Monitors for client PR placements and notifies via email and Slack alerts
    • Helps us research potential journalists writing about the topics relevant to our clients
    • Displays trending web and social content clearly with relevant metrics

    Screaming Frog

    • Crawling client sites of up to thousands of pages. Gives you almost every tool that you need to do a proper SEO audit.
    • Custom extractions using CSSpath, Xpath, or Regex. I'm not even a techy, but their support section here is a huge help with the provided examples.
    • Customer service and support - Dan is ALWAYS very prompt to respond with helpful answers on Twitter if needed.

    Cons

    Cision

    • Although I think it's hard, I'd like to see it being used for other mediums as well such as Twitch, etc.
    • It could have better backlink data to include more backlinks that each content piece has.
    • One or two more pricing tiers might work.

    Screaming Frog

    • Exporting one report at time to CSV or XSLX can be cumbersome and time consuming.
    • Custom extraction requires pretty in-depth knowledge of RegEx or XPath.
    • Not a very visual tool.
    • Larges sites can take up a tremendous amount of resources (RAM, space, connection).

    Screaming Frog

    The tool has become integrated into our teams daily workings and I have yet to find a tool other than scremaing frog to replicate all of our use cases for it. It's a great tool and we're sticking with it

    Usability

    Cision

    The interface is a little clunky for me, especially on mobile. However, the directions are clear and it didn't take long for me to figure out how to use it. I just wish that things were a little more streamlined.

    Screaming Frog

    Easy for me to use because I have using the product for a long time and understand the ins and outs of it. If I was a newbie, I would be completely lost. It does take some prior knowledge to operate this software and understanding of what a crawl means

    Cision

    The support we have received over the years has been wonderful. They have definitely demonstrated excellent customer service. We find the chat support to be the quickest and most useful for the day-to-day questions. A rep always responds very timely, answers our questions, and sends a follow-up to ensure we're maintaining success

    Screaming Frog is a relatively primitive system, and doesn't need to be supported by devs or other software. Screaming Frog does interface directly with some programs that are most needed (Google Analytics, Search Console, Page Speed Insights), so that's convenient. It isn't widely supported by other programs, but it also doesn't need to be.

    Alternatives Considered

    Cision

    Buffer is a tool that can be very useful for certain uses of Twitter, but in reality, it is very limited when you want to demand a little more. The pros actually weigh a lot, but the serious limitations in several regards do not allow us to give it a higher mark.
    I consider that Buffer is a very useful tool that allows you to have an active presence on social networks without having to be glued to them all day. There are others, among which Hootsuite stands out.

    Screaming Frog SEO Spider is probably the best non-client facing SEO audit tool in terms of technical SEO. There are other tools on the market that do a more complete job of keyword tracking, competitive analysis, and backlink profiles...however, for analyzing the technical SEO health of any website, Screaming Frog is the best

    Return on Investment

    Cision

    • It has had a positive return as it has allowed us to create better content and gain popularity online.
    • Though the cost is relatively high in my opinion, it has allowed us to make better organic content than we would have paid this cost on ads.
    • Helps us find influencers for campaigns.

    Screaming Frog

    • Increased employee efficiency - We spend many less hours tracking down and reporting simple meta tags.
    • Better Client Servicing - We are able to ensure we have a total look at a client's site before we recommend anything.
    • True Pricing Structure - We are able to more accurately predict how much help a client may need based on factors such as size of site, number of redirects, proper use of meta tags, etc.
