Semrush

Semrush is widely used by beginners and advanced marketers to run competitor backlink analysis. It is also used to run complete search engine optimization audits for clients in the sphere of digital marketing, as well as, content research, keyword research, and competitor insight across all industries for a better campaign.

ThriveHive

I believe that ThriveHives' business model is perfectly suited to smaller, but growing companies and start-ups. They have priced their services at a reasonable level for these businesses. I think ThriveHive trains their people thoroughly on the workings of search engines, so that their coaches really have a good handle on how to help you improve your internet, as well as your non-internet, presence. Additionally, since search engines continuously change and tweak their algorithms, I think ThriveHive does a good job at staying in step with the changes.

Joshua Poole | TrustRadius Reviewer

ThriveHive

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
Daniel Drummond | TrustRadius Reviewer

ThriveHive

  • While they have made great strides in their actual email content builder, it is still the largest area for improvement
  • Certain web edits can only be done by them on the back-end, which requires waiting to chat with a representative from support during regular business hours
  • Reporting could be more robust, and the ability to export those reports does not exist.

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!

Alternatives Considered

Semrush

I have some experience using Ahrefs and Moz, but I find the interface to be more user-friendly in Semrush.This is particularly useful when we show clients the tool or take screenshots directly from Semrush for client-facing documents. Once again, the Google Docs add-on for the SEO Writing Assistant is what really makes Semrush stand out over and above other tools for me.
