Screaming Frog

Screaming Frog SEO Spider is perfect for quick SEO audits to show prospective clients where their websites are falling short. It covers all the details you'd want an SEO audit tool to cover. It is probably a little confusing at first to beginner SEO's as it is fairly technical and as stated before, the GUI is not all that user friendly.

Cons

  • Sometimes a website is large enough that you can run out of memory. There is a way to fix that in the Screaming Frog platform, however I feel like it takes a programmer to figure out and configure the crawl. I wish there was an easy button!

The tool has become integrated into our teams daily workings and I have yet to find a tool other than scremaing frog to replicate all of our use cases for it. It's a great tool and we're sticking with it

Usability

Based on 2 answers
Easy for me to use because I have using the product for a long time and understand the ins and outs of it. If I was a newbie, I would be completely lost. It does take some prior knowledge to operate this software and understanding of what a crawl means

I have had very little issues with the software, most of which can be answered with the very extensive online documentation. However the few times I have had to ask for support, they have been nothing but helpful.

If the software was a little easier to use for beginners, there really wouldn't be an issue

Alternatives Considered

I use Screaming Frog because it is a very powerful tool that is not prohibitively expensive. Moz is at the same price range but has lost some of its zing because they have upped the price for individual aspects. Buy a license from SF and that is it, done and dusted. I just wish that they had more white papers and instructions, this is where Moz has the upper hand. I love Ahrefs though
