Semrush

Semrush is the ultimate keyword research tool. It has a "magic tool" that shows metrics for every keyword that is searched, and it can easily be filtered to show exactly what you're looking for, such as questions, or variants with a similar word in it. Easily export keywords from competitors into a spreadsheet or add them to a keyword manager list to stay organized.Semrush helps us create great reports for our clients as it tracks site health and technical issues, keyword positions, search engine visibility, and much more, all easily exportable to a PDF or even a custom report.

SEO PowerSuite

The software is not quite suitable for e-commerce, yet is powerful for gaining organic results.

Pros

Semrush

  • Competitive organic research. They do a great job of showing you what any website ranks for, what keywords they bid on in PPC, what ads they are showing display-wise, etc.
  • Organic keyword research. You can see related terms to a specific keyword and get estimated volume, historical volume trends, "difficulty" scores, etc.
  • Link analysis. They have a great suite of tools that find links to your website automatically, track links you currently have and measure their "toxicity" levels, traffic volume, etc.

SEO PowerSuite

  • The product was easy to use. I had no problems understanding how to use the product or setting it up.
  • SEO PowerSuite gave clear concise charts that were easy to read and helped upper level management better understand our strengths and weaknesses
  • I could pull new information about keyword rankings everyday if I needed to.

Cons

Semrush

  • It would be nice to be able to track a specific URL and have that saved so I can go back and look at specific pages I want to follow, not just highest traffic or top keywords without haveing to go to the next level. Post tracking is limited to 3 at the first level.
  • Pricing is on tiers, so some features just are out of reach for a small company.
  • It has a bit of a learning curve so if you aren't ready to learn it, you might not use it.

SEO PowerSuite

  • Unlike most of the other high-end SEO platforms, SEO PowerSuite is not an integrated platform. PowerSuite is a suite of four individual tools. This can make learning the workflow a bit daunting. They do have the training, However, I think it could be better
  • The SEO PowerSuite set of tools are desktop applications as opposed to being a web-based platform. Depending on your machine this does take some computing power. The applications are pretty efficient but it is something to be aware of.

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.

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.

This is a great tool that helps you identify the keywords that are common among our competitors. Similar to the keyword gap tool, we also use Backlink Gap tool that help us in determining the backlinks our travel website competitors. It also displays the SERP results list for the specific keyword and with this tool we have already ranked 5 pages on Google's first page

I have had several interactions with support at SEO PowerSuite. Each time I have been quite pleased with the response. I have interacted with billing and tools support and have found them to both be on top of things. they follow up well and they get the issue resolved in a timely manner. I have no complaints here.

Alternatives Considered

Semrush

We chose Semrush because of how it integrates multiple services into one subscription. Rather than having one subscription for social media, one for listing management and one for SEO, we're able to get all three of these needs met in one service. The customer service is also very good, and they are always making improvement to their platform.

SEO PowerSuite

SEO PowerSuite is a unique SEO software because it runs on your computer. Unlike Ahrefs or Moz, which run as SaS, this tool depends on your computer resources to crawl and gather data from the websites which can be a good thing, because your business lives on your computer. This can also be a negative thing because Google sometimes show their "captcha" since they recognize your machine as a crawler.PowerSuite recently improved their SEO SpyGlass' link index and now compete with the big dogs, such as Moz and Ahrefs and SEMrush, but not Majestic.They require you to pay a monthly fee for their "algo updates" which increases the cost of their "one time payment" marketing model.

Return on Investment

Semrush

  • ROI for us is proven pretty quickly with SEMrush internally, as when we use it for our clients it supports the agency services that we offer and perform.
  • For our organization, internally, it allows us to better market ourselves, which leads to net new leads and clients.
  • The spend for this tool is minimal compared to the insights it helps us gain, so it's a no-brainer. It's been one of the software we've kept a subscription to for the longest time, and we have no plan on discontinuing it at any point.
Kyle Moloo | TrustRadius Reviewer

SEO PowerSuite

  • One subscription for 4 packages is convenient.
  • However some clients only require one of the suite tools so the ability to buy one at a time would be good.
