Rank Ranger

It is great for just tracking keyword performance. The other features are nice but are not the most useful when compared to other for robust tools. The easy-on-the-eyes interface and the fact that keyword data can be updated in less than 3 hours after a bulk upload are why this tool works for lower-maintenance websites.

SEMRush

SEMRush is a great tool for any SEO campaign, especially if you are doing a lot of continued research on new keywords to target, if you have competitors to beat, links to acquire or monitor, etc. You can have multiple projects at one time, so it's great for a small to medium size agency that is managing multiple clients. There is a bit of a learning curve with it, but if you get in there and use it frequently, it provides a lot of value.

Pros

Rank Ranger

  • Clean and easy reporting
  • White Label Dashboards and Reports
  • Customizable reports (add the graphs and widgets you need)
Sanjit Mandal | TrustRadius Reviewer

SEMRush

  • Site audits: This feature quickly identifies issues and deficiencies found on our client's websites so that we implement fixes to correct the issue(s).
  • Keyword tracking: This feature is great for letting us know what keywords are and aren't performing well for our client's site(s) vs. the competition.
  • Reporting: Reports are quick and easy to pull, and simple for the client to read and understand even if they have limited technical knowledge.

Cons

Rank Ranger

  • Their reporting dashboard/custom report features are lacking. We rely on our other tool more so for this function as a result.
  • It is not a robust tool - focusing mostly on keyword performance, it does not have other features that further help us flesh out strategic next steps based on keyword performance
Joseph Woll | TrustRadius Reviewer

SEMRush

  • I'd like to see better, more customizable dashboard widgets.
  • Pricing based on how many keywords are being tracked is not a great model.
  • I'd like to see reports take into account both mobile and desktop collectively, instead of keeping them separate.

SEMRush has a slight learning curve, but everything is organized really well. Once you learn where everything is, using the software and running reports is incredibly easy. You can easily add new projects, get help for improving on-page SEO, and there are even video tutorials that walk you through the whole system if you still feel uncomfortable with it.

Their response is a little bit slow, but they respond in between 48 hours. I feel they should respond within minutes and provide build better communications with customers. This will help customers, and by this, SEMRush can quickly gain loyal customers. They can respond through the mail by which customers or users can understand ye the query is in progress.

Alternatives Considered

Rank Ranger

It was a lower price point and serves the need of anyone looking for the biggest bang for their buck. I highly recommend it if someone needs a rank tracking software that is clean and simple to use. They have a trial and also their customer support is great, you can call if necessary, but email is very responsive too.

I have not used another product like SEMRush. Although I do not have anything to compare it to, I think this platform is the total package! Even if you are only using the Keyword Magic Tool or using Domain Overview to look at competitor metrics, this platform with provide you with more insight, clarity, and information you need to create your best campaign / marketing strategy
