Link Detox

The go-to link risk management tool
Ivan Peric | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

Link Detox

  • Clean up the link profile of a website.
  • User-friendly interface to go through a list of websites.
  • Easily create a disavow file.
Christiaan Bollen | 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.
Ari Roth | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Link Detox

  • None that I can think of.
Dragan Berak | 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

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

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

Link Detox

  • It helped me remove manual penalties which makes a huge impact on rankings
  • Keeping the websites safe for future penalty reviews and updates
  • Having the websites rank good and protect them from penalties is a big ROI
Christiaan Bollen | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.
