Link Research Tools

If you have any problems with your rankings or a decrease in ranking position within google it is very good to make an Link Audit with the Link Research Tools. Then you Screen all Links manually and setup your disavow-file easily. With the Link Detox Boost you gain Rankings back so fast. The last time we used it for a client, we got back the rankings within a week to 170 Positions within the Top Ten, even Position 1.

SEO PowerSuite

The software is not quite suitable for e-commerce, yet is powerful for gaining organic results.

SEO PowerSuite

  • The product was easy to use. I had no problems understanding how to use the product or setting it up.
  • SEO PowerSuite gave clear concise charts that were easy to read and helped upper level management better understand our strengths and weaknesses
  • I could pull new information about keyword rankings everyday if I needed to.

Cons

Link Research Tools

  • Not for newcomers to SEO simply because its vast array of features may hinder them.
  • Is quite pricey too; so for small businesses etc., it's probably not a viable option.
Christopher Fleming Dip DigM | TrustRadius Reviewer

SEO PowerSuite

  • Unlike most of the other high-end SEO platforms, SEO PowerSuite is not an integrated platform. PowerSuite is a suite of four individual tools. This can make learning the workflow a bit daunting. They do have the training, However, I think it could be better
  • The SEO PowerSuite set of tools are desktop applications as opposed to being a web-based platform. Depending on your machine this does take some computing power. The applications are pretty efficient but it is something to be aware of.

I gave SEO PowerSuite a two because our company did not renew our subscription. The pricing was too complicated and having multiple platforms made it more difficult to use. We dropped our subscription to SEO PowerSuite and implemented Moz. Moz gave us a full view of all of the metrics we were looking for on one web-based platform. Plus, the pricing model was simple so it was easier to get senior management to cosign on.

I have had several interactions with support at SEO PowerSuite. Each time I have been quite pleased with the response. I have interacted with billing and tools support and have found them to both be on top of things. they follow up well and they get the issue resolved in a timely manner. I have no complaints here.

Alternatives Considered

Link Research Tools

LinkResearchTools is much more advanced in analyzing links. Period. All the other mentioned tools have many useful features for SEO but LRT is definitely the way to go for backlink analysis, link building, and competition analysis. They also offer very nice and quality courses for improving SEO knowledge. I already attended one of them and I am very satisfied with the knowledge I gained.

SEO PowerSuite

SEO PowerSuite is a unique SEO software because it runs on your computer. Unlike Ahrefs or Moz, which run as SaS, this tool depends on your computer resources to crawl and gather data from the websites which can be a good thing, because your business lives on your computer. This can also be a negative thing because Google sometimes show their "captcha" since they recognize your machine as a crawler.PowerSuite recently improved their SEO SpyGlass' link index and now compete with the big dogs, such as Moz and Ahrefs and SEMrush, but not Majestic.They require you to pay a monthly fee for their "algo updates" which increases the cost of their "one time payment" marketing model.

Return on Investment

Link Research Tools

  • Building strong links results in better rankings which results in a higher ROI
  • The Link Research Tools community also had a big impact on my networking
Christiaan Bollen | TrustRadius Reviewer

SEO PowerSuite

  • One subscription for 4 packages is convenient.
  • However some clients only require one of the suite tools so the ability to buy one at a time would be good.
