SEO PowerSuite

SEO PowerSuite, specifically Rank Tracker and Website Auditor, are 2 of my most used tools, and I mean multiple clients multiple times per day. Rank Tracker also seamlessly merges with Auditor—this is actually the only enterprise toolset for which I hold more than one license. Being able to find keyword and content gaps, as well as technical issues is possibly the most useful feature of any toolset. I would say it is always wise to have an alternative rank tracker, but I trust the PowerSuite variant over the others.

SurferSEO

SurferSEO is excellent if you want to optimize your SEO content using AI to find the right word count, keyword frequency, FAQs, and headings to use in your content. It also has a great audit feature to analyze existing content and identify any areas of improvement to be made. For keyword research and AI writing, it still isn't as feature-rich as other software, but the developers are constantly upgrading and adding new features - over time I am confident that SurferSEO will become the only SEO software that anyone needs.

Cons

SEO PowerSuite

  • 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.
Brandon Stark | TrustRadius Reviewer

SurferSEO

  • Have a pricing option that is based on the number of content editors and audits that don't expire - as well as monthly/yearly subscription options.
  • The keyword research tool - isn't as advanced as SEMRush or Ahrefs, and I am not completely confident with the keyword difficulty score for each keyword.
  • The AI writing assistant isn't as good as other options such as Jasper - although it has just received a major update (which I haven't used yet).

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.

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

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.

SurferSEO

Frase gives a lot of content to use, but it doesn't give you the factors you need to rank. This is ultimately why we use SurferSEO over any other editor tool that is out there. The analytics are number one to the entire space.
