Screaming Frog

Screaming Frog SEO Spider is especially suited to staging site checks because it crawls from your desktop anything you can reach behind the firewall. If authentication is required, the tool will allow you to enter that so it can proceed with the crawling. I prefer it for small and medium-sized sites and areas of a site since it can get the crawl done quickly for rapid analysis. I can confine it to certain URL patterns if I need. I can also crawl a list of URLs and it is great at checking sitemaps because you don't want any errors in those or Google will become discouraged from using them. Large sites can be crawled with this tool, but if it takes several days, you may have to pause it for restarts of your computer or if you need the computer's power for other functions like large spreadsheets.

Pros

Long Tail Pro

No answers on this topic

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

Long Tail Pro

Screaming Frog

  • Requires Java. This isn't a huge deal as many computers already have it installed, but it's yet another 3rd party component.
  • The free version has a crawl limit of 500 pages per site. This is fine for smaller sites, but if you're running a big e-commerce site then you'll need to pay for Pro version.
  • The user interface isn't very pretty. This is an analytics tool so it doesn't really have to be, but it might be helpful for improving the overall user experience.

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 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
