CognitiveSEO

CognitiveSEO is a very useful tool for any company looking to boost its marketing effort substantially. While telemarketing is an excellent way to generate new business, online marketing campaigns are crucial in today's society when it comes to prospecting for new business opportunities. Occasionally it can be difficult to reach new audiences who are in fact an appropriate fit for the products you offer. CognitiveSEO helps you target market those audiences and utilize the most out of your marketing efforts.

Google Mobile-Friendly Test

When our web design clients call us asking to update their websites to look mobile friendly to Google, then Google Mobile-Friendly Test is already the perfect solution for us to use, as Google knows their own search results best in designing their own web tools. However, if a client really has a lot of their own customers wanting a responsive design for specific devices, for example, a corporate customer that gives its employees Ipads, then Google Mobile-Friendly Test might not be as well suited.

Pros

CognitiveSEO

  • Increases Website Traction
  • Helps Build Social Media Presence
  • Helps Target Market Similar Customers of Alike Competitors
Brett Horton | TrustRadius Reviewer

Google Mobile-Friendly Test

  • The test gives you an option to test a live website or a chunk of code. This way your test your site code, even if your website is still in development.
  • The instant "green for good" is easy to see and explain.
  • The list of "page loading errors" gives you a nice explanation of loading issues that don't necessarily affect the site visibly, but are still slowing it down. This gives you a "hit list" of things to fix or look into.

Cons

CognitiveSEO

  • Exporting data is doable but a little confusing
  • The anchor text tagging is a bit cumbersome
  • Toxic link warnings can seem a little "the sky is falling"

They do not respond quickly to any questions or the one time I had an issue. I had resolved the issue myself before they gave a response

Alternatives Considered

CognitiveSEO

CognitiveSEO has some unique content optimization features and backlink analysis and auditing features that set it apart from other similar tools. For the price point it's well worth experimenting with to see if you can find value in using it.

Google Mobile-Friendly Test

The Google Mobile-Friendly Test is much better than Bing Webmaster Tools to ensure our clients' websites are mobile friendly responsive. Google's tool is created specifically for most of the online searches from the internet, and most modern devices, modern browsers, and screen resolution settings. Bing is not as technically advanced as Google and not as specific in their tools, to ensure the creation of mobile-friendly responsive devices.

Return on Investment

CognitiveSEO

  • Significant ROI on marketing campaigns by boosting our application output by 25%.
  • Extensive target marketing that attracts new clients to products we specialize in through detailed keyword searching across many different websites.
  • More efficiency for each individual sales representative in-house to obtain data quicker and sort leads more effectively.

Google Mobile-Friendly Test

  • The impact isn't necessarily measurable. I would compare it to asking a carpenter how much ROI a hammer provides when building a house. Google Mobile-Friendly Test is a free tool that is useful for website analysis and testing.
