It is great if your SEO team is young and getting to learn different tools. Or if you don't have access to programmers easily, to crawl and collect some data for you.

SpyFu

Overall Spyfu isn't to shabby of a platform. Is the best? No. Is it the worst? Also no. But it is a good option for any ad agency that does search engine marketing, whose client focus is larger than small medium businesses. However once you get to the major enterprise size advertisers, you may have outgrown the platform.

Pros

Ryte

  • Helping us to prevent onpage risks
  • Find pages which we can optimize
  • Optimize our texts
  • Tracking changes
Lukas Mehnert | TrustRadius Reviewer

SpyFu

  • Gets info on competitor's websites. Simply putting in a domain name allows us to see what keywords they rank for organically, how much they spend on PPC and what their ads look like.
  • Finds the best keywords for our clients. By showing what keywords are going to cost, how many searches per month, etc. it allows us to plan budgets more accurately.

Cons

Ryte

  • Sometimes the TF*IDF analysis doesn't make much sense
  • Can be difficult to justify the cost for the value provided
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SpyFu

  • As with any database, their keyword database has limits, so the data returned is relative to their database, not necessarily the full picture.
  • When SpyFu database or scoring chances, the data provided can spike, thus causing confusion among stakeholders, we're reporting to.

Love this tool but would like insights from all 3 major search engines not just Google. I would also like deeper understanding of the placement for local businesses on Google Places/Maps.Insight into mobile search rankings and best landing pages per industry would also help :) Overall, SpyFu is a necessity for serious search marketers.

I personally think that SpyFu has great support. In my time using this product for both myself and for my clients and customers, I have not experienced any problems with SpyFu or their support for their website or their services.

Alternatives Considered

Ryte

We started using OnPage.org as it was highly recommended by some consultants. Although after using it for few months, we realized that it has very limited "exclusive" information that only this tool can provide.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SpyFu

I have not really used any other products. I would say it would be very difficult for something to compare and compete with Spyfu due to its ease of use, great data, and productivity levels. Fortunately I have never had any major problems and would not look for a competitive product to substitute with.

Return on Investment

Ryte

  • It can be hard to justify the costs Vs returns, specially if you have most of the data available via other tools
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SpyFu

  • SpyFu has had a fairly neutral ROI for our business, as it is fairly cost-effective, but doesn't necessarily provide us with significant returns.
  • SpyFu is nice to have, and I recommend using it - even if just the free version; you really can't lose anything.
  • There are other tools out there similar to SpyFu, but if you haven't tried them yet, SpyFu can be a nice, cost-effective place to get started.
