Coosto

Coosto is an excellent all platform social media management tool, in which you can do (almost) everything.
Margaret Massop | TrustRadius Reviewer

Semrush

Semrush is the ultimate keyword research tool. It has a "magic tool" that shows metrics for every keyword that is searched, and it can easily be filtered to show exactly what you're looking for, such as questions, or variants with a similar word in it. Easily export keywords from competitors into a spreadsheet or add them to a keyword manager list to stay organized.Semrush helps us create great reports for our clients as it tracks site health and technical issues, keyword positions, search engine visibility, and much more, all easily exportable to a PDF or even a custom report.

Pros

Coosto

  • Quick, easy to use SQL based search functionality.
  • Simple interface with useful predesigned measures.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Semrush

  • Competitive organic research. They do a great job of showing you what any website ranks for, what keywords they bid on in PPC, what ads they are showing display-wise, etc.
  • Organic keyword research. You can see related terms to a specific keyword and get estimated volume, historical volume trends, "difficulty" scores, etc.
  • Link analysis. They have a great suite of tools that find links to your website automatically, track links you currently have and measure their "toxicity" levels, traffic volume, etc.

Cons

Coosto

  • The dashboard is only useable in full screen, not in compartments
  • Rather expensive
Bram Koopman | TrustRadius Reviewer

Semrush

  • It would be nice to be able to track a specific URL and have that saved so I can go back and look at specific pages I want to follow, not just highest traffic or top keywords without haveing to go to the next level. Post tracking is limited to 3 at the first level.
  • Pricing is on tiers, so some features just are out of reach for a small company.
  • It has a bit of a learning curve so if you aren't ready to learn it, you might not use it.

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.

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

Coosto

Coosto is more powerful than the version of Hootsuite we used.
Margaret Massop | TrustRadius Reviewer

Semrush

We chose Semrush because of how it integrates multiple services into one subscription. Rather than having one subscription for social media, one for listing management and one for SEO, we're able to get all three of these needs met in one service. The customer service is also very good, and they are always making improvement to their platform.

Return on Investment

Coosto

  • Positive impact on communications strategies.
  • Negative impact as product is often used for collecting metrics. Most of Coosto's metrics shouldn't be used for strategic or design decisions.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Semrush

  • ROI for us is proven pretty quickly with SEMrush internally, as when we use it for our clients it supports the agency services that we offer and perform.
  • For our organization, internally, it allows us to better market ourselves, which leads to net new leads and clients.
  • The spend for this tool is minimal compared to the insights it helps us gain, so it's a no-brainer. It's been one of the software we've kept a subscription to for the longest time, and we have no plan on discontinuing it at any point.
