SEO PowerSuite
Chose SEO PowerSuite
SEO PowerSuite should be used WITH a tool like Semrush. The reason is the data and the ability to remain private. SEO PowerSuite makes it super easy to look at keyword sets and organize them by silos. Semrush doesn't have this capability.
Chose SEO PowerSuite
Semrush is full of useful tools it is very good because it is "cloud" or web based but very expensive. SEO PowerSuite does most of the job much cheaper.
Chose SEO PowerSuite
In many ways, SEO PowersSuite is so powerful that I keep coming back to it everytime. All other software is a. Online and b. Often limited in ways (even in the paid versions) that breaks the productivity. Not a super bad thing per-se, but if you have to work on various websites …
Chose SEO PowerSuite
It's outdated but runs locally.
The unlimited tracking of keywords is a big plus.
At the end it is still to expensive for us too make sense for any much longer.
Chose SEO PowerSuite
I chose SEO PowerSuite because it is offline and allows me more control over the data. It is also cheaper.
Chose SEO PowerSuite
It works in combination with all of them, the closest would be a combination of Ahrefs, Majestic, and Screaming Frog. However, where this tool steps up its game, is when you integrate it with Google Search Console and then tie them both into Google Data Studio. When you get …
Chose SEO PowerSuite
  1. Low price for such many features
  2. using my computer's power instead of lazy servers
  3. huge database
Chose SEO PowerSuite
Based on price and functionality SEO PowerSuite is a strong competitor to the other tools mentioned. All of these tools serve the same basic need. Each has its own advantages and disadvantages. Every one of them will get the job done. However, for site owners, freelancers …

Semrush
This is suited to plan for keywords in a single market, but it struggles when you need to consolidate several markets. It is well-suited to discover new keywords directly related to the ones being used currently to expand the content the company is creating to get better results.

After starting your online business, you have to use SEO PowerSuite to start up. You want to know where you have to go in terms of SEO journey, what keywords you need to use, who your competition is and which locations are the most important to you. Also, you need to know the power of your website, how well it performs now and how it can be improved. If you just want to start blogging for fun, about stuff that interests you and only you, you might find this program a bit over the top. It has way too many features to "just" see how many visitors you get on your website. A simple plugin will probably do the job.

Cons
Semrush
  • Extra seats can be expensive, as [an] agency with multiple team members this can be frustrating
  • Backlink data is not great, misses out a lot of backlinks (better off using a specialist backlink tool like Link research tools LRT)
  • Tracking multiple keywords, across multiple clients can be costly

  • The software is not strong with processing large amounts of data. So, it is really good for small and medium size businesses, but can be cumbersome for large projects.
  • Due to large number of settings it takes time to learn it.
  • Need to purchase proxies or captcha solution. I think those can be provides as part of the package already.

I gave SEO PowerSuite a two because our company did not renew our subscription. The pricing was too complicated and having multiple platforms made it more difficult to use. We dropped our subscription to SEO PowerSuite and implemented Moz. Moz gave us a full view of all of the metrics we were looking for on one web-based platform. Plus, the pricing model was simple so it was easier to get senior management to cosign on.

Usability

SEMRush has a slight learning curve, but everything is organized really well. Once you learn where everything is, using the software and running reports is incredibly easy. You can easily add new projects, get help for improving on-page SEO, and there are even video tutorials that walk you through the whole system if you still feel uncomfortable with it.

I'm in a FB group for Semrush paid users and it amazing! They are fast to respond, take suggestions and help with questions. I have not felt alone in using this product at all. Highly recommend their support team. When I had an issue I can jump into the group and they will help get me the right person to help or even tag their programmers to look at something that is going on. Love the group!

We have used both Ahrefs and Semrush extensively at our agency and Semrush remains the tool of choice. We find that Semrush has the largest selection of tools & features to use, with the highest accuracy, and provides top-tier analysis recommendations. It's really is the ultimate all-in-one tool when comparing other performance measurement tools in the digital marketing space.

It works in combination with all of them, the closest would be a combination of Ahrefs, Majestic, and Screaming Frog. However, where this tool steps up its game, is when you integrate it with Google Search Console and then tie them both into Google Data Studio. When you get this right, you can show your client how much money they would need to spend on PPC to get the same 'value' of traffic. This changes the way they look at optimization, now the cost of a term in PPC is also used as a reason to optimize the customer journey.
