Majestic SEO

Majestic is a really great tool if your company is spending considerable resources on ongoing SEO efforts. In general, Majestic isn't for beginner SEO users, but a more advanced tool to get into deep SEO tactics. I would recommend this for agencies that have a significant investment in SEO. If you're a small team or a small business looking to improve SEO for yourself or company, there are platforms that offer a variety of tools for new to moderate expertise.

Searchmetrics

Searchmetrics does a great job when doing optimization of your content and keywords. It is less appropriate when doing off page optimization like backlinks.

Pros

Majestic SEO

  • I like Majestic's own metrics Trust and Citation flow, that are very representative of the real value of the website and it's potential effect on the rankings of the website it's linking to.
  • Also, theme (topic) of the website is very useful in the backlink report. This allows to easily identify backlinks relevant to your business.
  • The index of number of backlinks that is provided by Majestic is usually a lot bigger than the indexes of their competitors.
  • Lost link tracker is very useful for tracking dropped links of your projects (you can verify and track multiple domains). This allows to keep track on how many of your ads and articles stay live and sometimes we contact publishers to tell them that their changes on the website (i.e. updates) caused our article or link to go down.

Cons

Majestic SEO

  • Its API for developers and big companies sometime don't give the actual data.
  • Rank tracker is not 100% accurate, but you can create a rough estimate by the report.
  • Backlink history is also missing some links, but I found them mostly.
  • Sometimes site explorer does not give the actual report, so you should check manually too.

Once you've grown accustomed to the depth and accuracy of Majestic's crawl, it's hard to consider paying for anything else (or settling for free options). SEMRush and MOZ can get you somewhere, but in the right hands, a tool as powerful as Majestic can do a lot for a business's link building strategy.

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.

In started when our team started to use this tool, we had trouble understanding many of its features, so its customer support team was our teacher to understand all its complicated features and also how they are used to get better results. Nowadays we are working very efficiently without any help.

Alternatives Considered

Majestic SEO

Majestic has features that most of their competitors don't. The backlink index is better than SEMRush in my opinion which also lacks being able to look at links from a range of dates. Their metrics are harder to fool when compared to Moz and I would say that AHREF's is a good competitor but each company keeps their own index of links so its good to use more than one tool

Searchmetrics

We originally selected Searchmetrics because we got more bang for our buck. On the research end, we could do unlimited searches without the cost of the service going up. As for the historical data, we could store more trending data and do deeper research than we could with the competitor. The monthly fee was almost half (if i remember correctly, but it's been a few years) of what what we were paying before with a competitor.

Return on Investment

Majestic SEO

  • ROI is difficult to ascertain in healthcare marketing, mostly due to privacy laws. Although, Majestic has improved our insight into our digital content, giving us data to work with on the primary site, which has led to an overall increase in organic search.
Sean Pomory | TrustRadius Reviewer

Searchmetrics

  • 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.
