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.

Pros

Ryte

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

UpCity

  • Customized marketing checklist is incredible!
  • The way UpCity verifies items in your marketing checklist (like whether you have social accounts, you're on Google, etc,) helps my business, and others, save precious time having to manually verify them yourself.
  • I love the impact scores and estimated time shown on each task to give us a feel of how much we are doing each month and what value that time spent is.
  • The "about" and "how to" section on tasks makes it very clear how to accomplish each task.

Ryte

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

Usability is mediocre: They have a dashboard to track things but they have some antiquated system of ranking companies and don’t tell you what the logic is behind it. You also have no way to combat negative ratings or respond and try to correct them.

I received little help from customer service rep, Sarah. She told me I should speak to a manager to “reset my expectations”. Apparently, all the sales promises of more traffic and increase SEO were an issue with my expectations, and not the company failing to deliver.

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

UpCity

We selected UpCity primarily because of the ongoing services they provide. The UpCity software is a simple platform that enables us to easily show progress and ROI to our clients.

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

UpCity

  • UpCity was costly for us because we were small. If we were a 10 person agency, the price would be right in line with what we need.
  • UpCity has taught us many processes we needed to continue helping our clients be successful.
