KeywordSpy is appropriate for most Internet Market research companies. I would not suggest it for a corporate marketing department unless it's a company with a very larger budget. This is also not a tool for small freelancers even though there is a free option, to get the best benefit of KeywordSpy it's best to use most of its features and options and this can get pricey.

Searchmetrics
Searchmetrics has been helpful to me to track keyword rankings for my portals. You can track upto 50K keywords and also the ability to compare ranking comparisons on a weekly and monthly basis. So, it is very well suited for doing content analysis, Keyword analysis etc. But when it comes to technical SEO items, this tool doesn't support that and has hardly anything to contribute. This is something that they could improve or work on integrating as a feature.

  • A lot of competitor SEO research sites offer suggestions on how to improve SEO ranking or changes that could be made to page title or descriptions, but Searchmetrics is a research only product and does not offer suggestions.
  • Not sure if all of their contracts have an auto-renew, but ours did and we missed the 30-day notice to opt out and are now stuck in a new full year contract...
  • Adding mobile tracking requires a new contract and is an additional add-on

We are currently using an agency and do not need Searchmetrics services at this time. If we do need research metrics in the future, we will probably go with them. The only deterrent is that we got suckered into an additional year with them because we were a few days late on opting out of the auto-renew. Although I was very upset about getting stuck an extra year paying for services I do not need, that is probably the only issue I have with the company, so if you can avoid that, it's a pretty good product.

KeywordSpy
Most SEO and market research tools offer what KeywordSpy has but are not as detailed and in one place. Consequently, where you can do everything at KeywordSpy, with other tools you find you have to purchase multiple tools or subscriptions from different providers which also don't integrate with each other. KeywordSpy makes your research easier and more efficient.

I think Search metrics justify the cost of the tool with the kind of features it has but I would like to see more from the tool in coming years as this tool has the ability to be the #1 tool in the SEO market.

  • It had a positive impact on the ROI. As the websites rank better the revenue raised.
  • Searchmetrics Suite is an expensive product, it is too expensive for small websites.
