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.

Searchmetrics

Searchmetrics does a great job when doing optimization of your content and keywords. It is less appropriate when doing off page optimization like backlinks.

We are currently using an agency and do not need Searchmetrics services at this time. If we do need research metrics in the future, we will probably go with them. The only deterrent is that we got suckered into an additional year with them because we were a few days late on opting out of the auto-renew. Although I was very upset about getting stuck an extra year paying for services I do not need, that is probably the only issue I have with the company, so if you can avoid that, it's a pretty good product.

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.

Searchmetrics

We originally selected Searchmetrics because we got more bang for our buck. On the research end, we could do unlimited searches without the cost of the service going up. As for the historical data, we could store more trending data and do deeper research than we could with the competitor. The monthly fee was almost half (if i remember correctly, but it's been a few years) of what what we were paying before with a competitor.

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.
Brett Horton | TrustRadius Reviewer

Searchmetrics

  • It had a positive impact on the ROI. As the websites rank better the revenue raised.
  • Searchmetrics Suite is an expensive product, it is too expensive for small websites.
