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.

Yext Search Experience Cloud

Yext is very well suited for a larger, multi-location business. As your organization grows it becomes more and more challenging to manually manage your online listings across the web. With Yext you simply add your location information and the sites they work with are automatically updated. For smaller businesses with only a few locations, it would be much more cost-effective to create and manage these listings yourself instead of paying a monthly fee.

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.

Yext Search Experience Cloud

  • Making sure our location data is correctly being understood by Google.
  • Taking into account best design principles for our pages layout.
  • Staying on top of Google best practices so we don't have to.
  • Building a very robust place for us to store all our location information.
  • Solid integrations with some of our other key partners, for example Olo, Punchh.
  • Being a very good partner for us, our Client Success Manager is exceptional.

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.

  • Cost. This platform offers a lot of powerful features, but it has an expensive barrier to entry.
  • Annual contracts limit flexibility for smaller companies
  • The biggest drawback is that you need to keep your subscription active or listings/citation data will revert back to what it was pre-Yext implementation

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

We are a larger company with 26 locations, so we may receive additional attention. But they are always quick to answer our calls or emails. I rarely need support as the software delivers as promised. I will say their staff thus far has been very knowledgable about Yext and some lesser-known features. For us, they really understand our needs and why I'd be asking for certain solutions.

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.

We didn't know about BirdEye until after working with Yext. Definitely excited to work with them and see how their solution stacks up. It seems to be Yext but much more robust and hopefully actually functional. The bedside manner at Yext was the most unprofessional I have ever seen in my entire career.

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

Yext Search Experience Cloud

  • Yext has absolutely strengthened our SEO performance and has driven leads that perform extremely well.
  • Yext has improved our consultation show rate because all of the clinic information for each of our locations is accurate no matter which website our clients are using to search for the clinic info.
  • Yext has allowed our organization to ensure the correct phone numbers are listed across the web, which increased the number of inbound leads that come into our Call Center.
