Screaming Frog

Screaming Frog SEO Spider is especially suited to staging site checks because it crawls from your desktop anything you can reach behind the firewall. If authentication is required, the tool will allow you to enter that so it can proceed with the crawling. I prefer it for small and medium-sized sites and areas of a site since it can get the crawl done quickly for rapid analysis. I can confine it to certain URL patterns if I need. I can also crawl a list of URLs and it is great at checking sitemaps because you don't want any errors in those or Google will become discouraged from using them. Large sites can be crawled with this tool, but if it takes several days, you may have to pause it for restarts of your computer or if you need the computer's power for other functions like large spreadsheets.

Well, it's affordable for business owners and anyone interested in a good step-up to boost their website performance, also great for agencies. It lacks the commercialism of Moz and SEM Rush with automated reports but you could snapshot charts and create your own.

Pros

Screaming Frog

  • Crawling client sites of up to thousands of pages. Gives you almost every tool that you need to do a proper SEO audit.
  • Custom extractions using CSSpath, Xpath, or Regex. I'm not even a techy, but their support section here is a huge help with the provided examples.
  • Customer service and support - Dan is ALWAYS very prompt to respond with helpful answers on Twitter if needed.

Ubersuggest

  • Nice clean and clear layout, that's easy to use
  • All the functions you need for basic SEO research
  • Prices for 1-3 websites are nice and on the lower end vs other tools

Cons

Screaming Frog

  • Requires Java. This isn't a huge deal as many computers already have it installed, but it's yet another 3rd party component.
  • The free version has a crawl limit of 500 pages per site. This is fine for smaller sites, but if you're running a big e-commerce site then you'll need to pay for Pro version.
  • The user interface isn't very pretty. This is an analytics tool so it doesn't really have to be, but it might be helpful for improving the overall user experience.
Justin Roodman | TrustRadius Reviewer

Ubersuggest

  • Lack of competitor analysis
  • Limited features in free version
  • Three searches provided in free version
  • Some limitation on target market

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

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

It's really easy to use. The interface is nice and tidy, and the learning curve is low. So it's a tool that's accessible for everyone. If not, there are plenty of guides in the tool itself or on the website. You can easily make lists and export data for use or to share, connect Google Drive, and go work with a team.

Screaming Frog is a relatively primitive system, and doesn't need to be supported by devs or other software. Screaming Frog does interface directly with some programs that are most needed (Google Analytics, Search Console, Page Speed Insights), so that's convenient. It isn't widely supported by other programs, but it also doesn't need to be.

Alternatives Considered

Screaming Frog

Screaming Frog SEO Spider is probably the best non-client facing SEO audit tool in terms of technical SEO. There are other tools on the market that do a more complete job of keyword tracking, competitive analysis, and backlink profiles...however, for analyzing the technical SEO health of any website, Screaming Frog is the best

Ubersuggest is much easier to use, not overly complex and much more affordable. You can get results in less than 10 minutes without much work, whereas with competitors you need to really study how to use them first.

Return on Investment

Screaming Frog

  • Increased employee efficiency - We spend many less hours tracking down and reporting simple meta tags.
  • Better Client Servicing - We are able to ensure we have a total look at a client's site before we recommend anything.
  • True Pricing Structure - We are able to more accurately predict how much help a client may need based on factors such as size of site, number of redirects, proper use of meta tags, etc.

Ubersuggest

  • It helps me to rank on Google by doing keyword research
  • It doesn't provide good competitive analysis
