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.

SurferSEO

SurferSEO is a powerful and technical SEO tool for any writer to rank on Google. It would be too much information, even overwhelming at times, for someone who has never had experience with this kind of work before, but there's tons of detailed knowledge available when it comes to understanding the features that are most relevant while still meeting your goals in mind.

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.
Joseph Miller | TrustRadius Reviewer

SurferSEO

Frase gives a lot of content to use, but it doesn't give you the factors you need to rank. This is ultimately why we use SurferSEO over any other editor tool that is out there. The analytics are number one to the entire space.
