Comscore Ad Metrix

Ad Metrix is well suited for teams that are directly tied to sales teams as well as teams that use DMP and other platforms to help target and retarget specific users for ads or site visits/views.
It may not be as useful if the organization is not targeting specific users or isn't interested in their consumption habits and what competitors are focusing on.

SEMrush

SEMRush is a great tool for any SEO campaign, especially if you are doing a lot of continued research on new keywords to target, if you have competitors to beat, links to acquire or monitor, etc. You can have multiple projects at one time, so it's great for a small to medium size agency that is managing multiple clients. There is a bit of a learning curve with it, but if you get in there and use it frequently, it provides a lot of value.

Pros

Comscore Ad Metrix

  • Site Analytics data - ComScore puts all of the stats you need in an easy to read dashboard. I don't need to search around like I do in Google Analytics to find out who is visiting my client's site, where they are browsing, how long they are engaging with the content. It's also really easy to integrate conversion data alongside website analytics. The webpage heat maps are also an awesome way to look at where people are engaging with the client's webpages.
  • Infographics, charts - I love how easy it is to pull a client ready chart that I can insert into a presentation for the client to show various stats pertaining to their campaigns (e.g. most visited pages, most viewed videos, MoM stats on orders/revenue/average order value.
  • Report Builder - Makes it simple to pull reports on site analytics that I can easily add filters to. I can get all the data I need in one report. I do a lot of presentation building for the clients on a monthly basis. This makes it more efficient for me to pull out sharable insights.

  • Site audits: This feature quickly identifies issues and deficiencies found on our client's websites so that we implement fixes to correct the issue(s).
  • Keyword tracking: This feature is great for letting us know what keywords are and aren't performing well for our client's site(s) vs. the competition.
  • Reporting: Reports are quick and easy to pull, and simple for the client to read and understand even if they have limited technical knowledge.

Cons

Comscore Ad Metrix

  • Deeper measurement in mobile, social and SVOD/OTT
  • Major networks are not included (e.g. Turn DMP)
  • Reach/frequency tool only allows for input of demo guarantee targeting

SEMrush

  • I'd like to see better, more customizable dashboard widgets.
  • Pricing based on how many keywords are being tracked is not a great model.
  • I'd like to see reports take into account both mobile and desktop collectively, instead of keeping them separate.

SEMRush has a slight learning curve, but everything is organized really well. Once you learn where everything is, using the software and running reports is incredibly easy. You can easily add new projects, get help for improving on-page SEO, and there are even video tutorials that walk you through the whole system if you still feel uncomfortable with it.

The staff is available pretty quickly for questions, but are not really around in-person to meet with me and my team. They are able to solve my problems online and do work sessions as needed via skype.

This is a great tool that helps you identify the keywords that are common among our competitors. Similar to the keyword gap tool, we also use Backlink Gap tool that help us in determining the backlinks our travel website competitors. It also displays the SERP results list for the specific keyword and with this tool we have already ranked 5 pages on Google's first page

Alternatives Considered

Comscore Ad Metrix

They're both fairly similar in relaying data for us on our viewers. We've used comScore longer and are able to compare specific data to one another as well as competitor sites

I have not used another product like SEMRush. Although I do not have anything to compare it to, I think this platform is the total package! Even if you are only using the Keyword Magic Tool or using Domain Overview to look at competitor metrics, this platform with provide you with more insight, clarity, and information you need to create your best campaign / marketing strategy

Return on Investment

Comscore Ad Metrix

  • I have not used the tool long enough to determine myself, but my understanding is the team has been able to drive growth and sales significantly through the use of the tool.

  • SEMRush has allowed for our marketing team to have a better focus on what keywords make sense for our pages to rank for, giving us data-backed decisions and saving us time.
  • We have also been able to easily track the changes in our organic traffic month to month, especially by keyword. Having the ability to see which keywords are providing the most value has influenced our content strategy as well as our backlink pursuits
