Moz Pro

Businesses looking to keep track of their web presence and utilize a tool to identify areas of opportunity. The trends tracking and competitor modeling allow businesses to be able to build an SEO strategy that they can track progress over time and fill in content gaps. This is used by our company in conjunction with our marketing automation tool and Google's web presence suite (eg. Google Analytics, Search Console, Tag Manager).

It would be less appropriate for businesses that cannot afford its services. I believe that almost any company can benefit from this but it needs to make sense financially. It is really well suited for mid-large businesses who want to target consumers through search engines and wants to stay ahead of competitors and see what keyphrases and words that they are using to better suit your content.

Pros

Moz Pro

  • It finds relevant keywords and lets you know your chance of ranking with them.
  • It helps you find content that needs work to rank better.
  • It helps you improve any technical issues with your web pages.
  • It helps you audit your current site for any technical issues.
  • It helps you keep track of your most important keywords.

  • Competitors bidding against our keywords
  • Threat analysis
  • Automatially sending alerts if specific metrics change

Cons

Moz Pro

  • Some of the auto-gen visual tables aren't all that useful for smaller companies. For instance on the Search Visibility tab, many of my clients have a tiny % of keywords in the top-10, so the table shows basically 4 overlaid flat lines. I wish we had some options to customize this table or expand the range or something.
  • I wish there were some more tools relating to the technical aspects of the site/pages. The whole tool is very keyword-oriented, which is fine, but I feel like over time this has become and will continue to be less important than technical aspects, site speed, voice search, etc.
  • There's an Anchor Text tab, but it only looks at Inbound links—I wish this feature was for on-site anchor text—this could be a much better optimization tool. Because there's nothing you can do about inbound link text.

We've been paying monthly for Moz for at least four years. We rely heavily on it for our daily work, and would need to re-engineer many of our processes if we were to cancel our subscription. I suspect we'll continue to use Moz as long as we are in business (assuming they maintain their quality).

it's easy to use once you get the hang of it and most people with any sort of background in using online tools and analytics systems can figure it out. it's just not as intuitive as it could be like google webmaster tools or Adobe (Site Catalyst)

As I have mentioned before, if you have enterprise subscription, the staff are super helpful. Moz also participated in the marketing tech conferences especially moz in seattle. These sessions are super useful in helping digital marketing analyst like me to investigate new marketing techniques, tracking leads and conversions and eventually monetize them. Their staff is not only knowledgeable in their own product but they have been around. For example Dr Peter from moz always publishes his insights and I have relied somewhat on his opinions.

Alternatives Considered

Moz Pro

Moz emerged as an industry leader with a great reputation for driving optimal SEO performance and ROI for customers. Moz' thought leadership on all things SEO gave us a lot of confidence to invest and partner with them. The wide array of product features was also something that was important to us relative to Moz' competitors. In the end, we felt there wasn't anything we couldn't do with Moz. We were also impressed with the on demand platform training and tools provided from day 1. Lastly, Moz was one of the more expensive platforms, but it wasn't the most expensive, so we felt we received great value for the overall price.

Search monitor gives better visibility on what competitors are doing for a bulk of keywords, while SEMRush lets you just see how strong the competition is for a specific domain/keyword.

Return on Investment

Moz Pro

  • Here I can easily find competitor's ranking keywords and their backlinks. It also gives you another exciting feature where you can compare two domains at the same time.
  • The thing that I don't like about this software is, that sometimes your page can take too much time for crawling.

  • Violations have been easy to submit taking less time away from the team
  • Was able to increase SEO
