If you have a fully customized cms and have people working on the site with html and css knowledge this is the best tool ever, all specifics can be checked. Using ab tests and optimization services we identify best practices of the website and everywhere the best practices aren't implemented we find using the custom checkpoints. Aspects that cannot be automated via a quick IT solution is turned into a checkpoint and that's great!

Pros

Crownpeak DQM

Cons

Crownpeak DQM

  • It would be helpful if the Issues page under Website showed the WCAG level for each issue (A, AA, AAA). You currently have to look up the guideline to find the level.
  • There is no indicator that a page is currently being scanned. During a website scan, some of the reports are blank or missing information. Having a notification on the main page showing which websites are being scanned would be helpful.
  • Some ADA compliance items are left off, such as keyboard navigation, tabbing, etc.
  • It doesn't view the websites on mobile devices or if using a screen reader. Some pages or formatting changes depending on resolution. The DQM, from what I have seen, doesn't account for that.

Semrush

  • Extra seats can be expensive, as [an] agency with multiple team members this can be frustrating
  • Backlink data is not great, misses out a lot of backlinks (better off using a specialist backlink tool like Link research tools LRT)
  • Tracking multiple keywords, across multiple clients can be costly

I had a small learning curve in order to become fluent with the platform as it doesn't work like the other automated accessibility tools that I've used. However, once I was up to speed, I like it better than any of the other tools and find the data more useful, digestible, and relevant.

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 support is ABSOLUTELY astonishing, I myself am working [on] the services side of things and know for a fact that tickets can take some time. The team, however (Parul, Loftus, Amitsing) are doing a [wonderful] task in helping us out. And of course, there's also Lucy who's always happy to jump onto a call to [discuss] certain aspects we might have questions about. Can't grade this any different [than] 10/10.

I'm in a FB group for Semrush paid users and it amazing! They are fast to respond, take suggestions and help with questions. I have not felt alone in using this product at all. Highly recommend their support team. When I had an issue I can jump into the group and they will help get me the right person to help or even tag their programmers to look at something that is going on. Love the group!

Alternatives Considered

Crownpeak DQM

Crownpeak Digital Quality Management (DQM) has all the tools in one dashboard for all possible needs of a website to resolve SEO and other issues. Whereas WordPress is more of searching for the right plugin to assist in finding all the issues you might have a need to address.

Araceli Carrasco | TrustRadius Reviewer

Semrush

I have some experience using Ahrefs and Moz, but I find the interface to be more user-friendly in Semrush.This is particularly useful when we show clients the tool or take screenshots directly from Semrush for client-facing documents. Once again, the Google Docs add-on for the SEO Writing Assistant is what really makes Semrush stand out over and above other tools for me.

Return on Investment

Crownpeak DQM

  • When driving Customer Care, it was great to be able to add the Autofix tool to the web estate - a quick-win that really drives the accessibility agenda.
  • Building reports off the back of DQM gives senior stakeholders an understanding of the importance of usability and accessibility.
  • The gamification of league tables highlights to stakeholders the areas that need focus and budget in order to improve.

Semrush

  • We have seen our ranking goes up due to the keywords we have discovered.
  • We have seen our domain authority grow as we have discovered new backlinks.
  • We have seen less visitor errors since using the technical auditing tool to resolve problems.
