DeepCrawl

DeepCrawl is organized very well for a full technical audit of a site. The menu on the left side is very easy to navigate, and you don't have to surf around too much to get an idea of what is plaguing a site. For a larger audit, DeepCrawl rules. Smaller audits can be tricky if you just want to know one quick thing because the crawl time can be unpredictable and difficult to project.

Screaming Frog

Screaming Frog tracks the crawl level, internal links, outbound links, title tags, and meta descriptions of the pages it crawls. It also adds HTTP status codes, title tag length, meta description length, H1, H2 tags and lengths, and canonical tags. Many of these elements are also broken into their own tabs at the top so that you can easily focus in on problem areas. You can right-click on any URL for many more options. The program is definitely valuable to anyone who is looking to gauge factors regarding SEO. However, if you are not a web designer/admin, you're going to lack an understanding of the information it provides.

Pros

DeepCrawl

  • GUI, when you run a crawl, the response is epic. It isn't just results, the results are very easy to understand.
  • Again, as pertaining to the explanation above. If you use other crawl software, it can be difficult to get insights, whereas DeepCrawl makes it easy. You can get proper insights.
  • It is so easy to put your stamp on things. DeepCrawl gives you an option as a consultant that you might not have had before, it is your backup.
James Egan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Screaming Frog

  • Crawling client sites of up to thousands of pages. Gives you almost every tool that you need to do a proper SEO audit.
  • Custom extractions using CSSpath, Xpath, or Regex. I'm not even a techy, but their support section here is a huge help with the provided examples.
  • Customer service and support - Dan is ALWAYS very prompt to respond with helpful answers on Twitter if needed.

Cons

DeepCrawl

  • Sitemap generating time often takes a few hours depending on how large your site is
  • I would like to have more suggestions to guide optimization efforts
  • Some of the initial setup for crawlers does take time
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Screaming Frog

  • Exporting one report at time to CSV or XSLX can be cumbersome and time consuming.
  • Custom extraction requires pretty in-depth knowledge of RegEx or XPath.
  • Not a very visual tool.
  • Larges sites can take up a tremendous amount of resources (RAM, space, connection).

The tool has become integrated into our teams daily workings and I have yet to find a tool other than scremaing frog to replicate all of our use cases for it. It's a great tool and we're sticking with it

Easy for me to use because I have using the product for a long time and understand the ins and outs of it. If I was a newbie, I would be completely lost. It does take some prior knowledge to operate this software and understanding of what a crawl means

I liked the platform overall. It is a good crawler. I no longer use because it's duplicate of what I get with seoClarity. I did not give it 10/10 because sometimes I had a hard time isolating site areas that I wanted and didn't get much technical support from Conductor on how to use the tool

Screaming Frog is a relatively primitive system, and doesn't need to be supported by devs or other software. Screaming Frog does interface directly with some programs that are most needed (Google Analytics, Search Console, Page Speed Insights), so that's convenient. It isn't widely supported by other programs, but it also doesn't need to be.

If the software was a little easier to use for beginners, there really wouldn't be an issue

Alternatives Considered

DeepCrawl

They have a technical component to their software, but DeepCrawl is more detailed.
Jane Phelps | TrustRadius Reviewer

Screaming Frog

Screaming Frog SEO Spider is probably the best non-client facing SEO audit tool in terms of technical SEO. There are other tools on the market that do a more complete job of keyword tracking, competitive analysis, and backlink profiles...however, for analyzing the technical SEO health of any website, Screaming Frog is the best

Return on Investment

DeepCrawl

  • The price of the tool compared to the amount of time it saves me is a staggering number.
  • With DeepCrawl I can leave no stone unturned, which helps establish Agency credibility with clients.

Screaming Frog

  • Increased employee efficiency - We spend many less hours tracking down and reporting simple meta tags.
  • Better Client Servicing - We are able to ensure we have a total look at a client's site before we recommend anything.
  • True Pricing Structure - We are able to more accurately predict how much help a client may need based on factors such as size of site, number of redirects, proper use of meta tags, etc.
