Searchmetrics

Searchmetrics has been helpful to me to track keyword rankings for my portals. You can track upto 50K keywords and also the ability to compare ranking comparisons on a weekly and monthly basis. So, it is very well suited for doing content analysis, Keyword analysis etc. But when it comes to technical SEO items, this tool doesn't support that and has hardly anything to contribute. This is something that they could improve or work on integrating as a feature.

It's best used for small to mid-sized businesses that need to track a modest number of keyword phrases - perhaps 100 to 500 - across multiple search engines, in a limited number of geographies, against three or fewer competitors. It's less useful for large enterprises or small businesses that need multiple SEO functions handled by a single tool.

Pros

Searchmetrics

  • Content optimization, give one or more keywords to Searchmetrics and the webpage you want to rank for those keywords. Searchmetrics will check your page and compare it with other web pages that rank for your given keywords.
  • Competitor research, find out what keywords your competitors are ranking for.
  • Keyword research, what keywords are you using and which keywords could be new opportunities for your project.

Cons

Searchmetrics

  • A lot of competitor SEO research sites offer suggestions on how to improve SEO ranking or changes that could be made to page title or descriptions, but Searchmetrics is a research only product and does not offer suggestions.
  • Not sure if all of their contracts have an auto-renew, but ours did and we missed the 30-day notice to opt out and are now stuck in a new full year contract...
  • Adding mobile tracking requires a new contract and is an additional add-on

  • The interface is very rudimentary, it is not an interface that we would be comfortable adding clients the ability to access.
  • All results must be pulled into other programs for inclusion in monitoring reports.
  • Adding separate keyword targets for mobile and non-mobile is cumbersome and results must be tracked separately.

      We are currently using an agency and do not need Searchmetrics services at this time. If we do need research metrics in the future, we will probably go with them. The only deterrent is that we got suckered into an additional year with them because we were a few days late on opting out of the auto-renew. Although I was very upset about getting stuck an extra year paying for services I do not need, that is probably the only issue I have with the company, so if you can avoid that, it's a pretty good product.

      This is an area where AuthorityLabs really shines. It's one of the few Martech or SEO tools vendors about whom I can honestly say I've never had a complaint about their customer support. The team there consistently responds to any questions I've had or issues I've encountered quickly, helpfully, and in a way that feels personal.

      Alternatives Considered

      Searchmetrics

      I think Search metrics justify the cost of the tool with the kind of features it has but I would like to see more from the tool in coming years as this tool has the ability to be the #1 tool in the SEO market.

      Very comparative as far as price [goes]. Some of the competitors have different features but you get trade-offs depending on who you are comfortable using.

      Return on Investment

      Searchmetrics

      • It had a positive impact on the ROI. As the websites rank better the revenue raised.
      • Searchmetrics Suite is an expensive product, it is too expensive for small websites.

      • We did not any process in terms of reporting on ROI in regards to SEO, but we only paid a very small monthly charge so it was a no-brainer to use it. It definitely helped our business.
