SEMRush

SEMRush is a great tool for any SEO campaign, especially if you are doing a lot of continued research on new keywords to target, if you have competitors to beat, links to acquire or monitor, etc. You can have multiple projects at one time, so it's great for a small to medium size agency that is managing multiple clients. There is a bit of a learning curve with it, but if you get in there and use it frequently, it provides a lot of value.

Cons

SEMRush

  • I'd like to see better, more customizable dashboard widgets.
  • Pricing based on how many keywords are being tracked is not a great model.
  • I'd like to see reports take into account both mobile and desktop collectively, instead of keeping them separate.

  • It could have better training materials as it was quite hard to figure out what to do the first time
  • Plus they seem not to segment their list as I get sales messages to buy

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.

Their response is a little bit slow, but they respond in between 48 hours. I feel they should respond within minutes and provide build better communications with customers. This will help customers, and by this, SEMRush can quickly gain loyal customers. They can respond through the mail by which customers or users can understand ye the query is in progress.

Alternatives Considered

SEMRush

I have not used another product like SEMRush. Although I do not have anything to compare it to, I think this platform is the total package! Even if you are only using the Keyword Magic Tool or using Domain Overview to look at competitor metrics, this platform with provide you with more insight, clarity, and information you need to create your best campaign / marketing strategy
