SpyFu

Overall Spyfu isn't to shabby of a platform. Is the best? No. Is it the worst? Also no. But it is a good option for any ad agency that does search engine marketing, whose client focus is larger than small medium businesses. However once you get to the major enterprise size advertisers, you may have outgrown the platform.

Ubersuggest

Well, it's affordable for business owners and anyone interested in a good step-up to boost their website performance, also great for agencies. It lacks the commercialism of Moz and SEM Rush with automated reports but you could snapshot charts and create your own.

Pros

SpyFu

  • Gets info on competitor's websites. Simply putting in a domain name allows us to see what keywords they rank for organically, how much they spend on PPC and what their ads look like.
  • Finds the best keywords for our clients. By showing what keywords are going to cost, how many searches per month, etc. it allows us to plan budgets more accurately.

Ubersuggest

  • Nice clean and clear layout, that's easy to use
  • All the functions you need for basic SEO research
  • Prices for 1-3 websites are nice and on the lower end vs other tools
Mike Koolwijk | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

SpyFu

  • As with any database, their keyword database has limits, so the data returned is relative to their database, not necessarily the full picture.
  • When SpyFu database or scoring chances, the data provided can spike, thus causing confusion among stakeholders, we're reporting to.

Love this tool but would like insights from all 3 major search engines not just Google. I would also like deeper understanding of the placement for local businesses on Google Places/Maps.Insight into mobile search rankings and best landing pages per industry would also help :) Overall, SpyFu is a necessity for serious search marketers.

It's really easy to use. The interface is nice and tidy, and the learning curve is low. So it's a tool that's accessible for everyone. If not, there are plenty of guides in the tool itself or on the website. You can easily make lists and export data for use or to share, connect Google Drive, and go work with a team.

I personally think that SpyFu has great support. In my time using this product for both myself and for my clients and customers, I have not experienced any problems with SpyFu or their support for their website or their services.

Easy to use, not as expensive as competition, runs fast.

Alternatives Considered

SpyFu

I have not really used any other products. I would say it would be very difficult for something to compare and compete with Spyfu due to its ease of use, great data, and productivity levels. Fortunately I have never had any major problems and would not look for a competitive product to substitute with.

Ubersuggest is much easier to use, not overly complex and much more affordable. You can get results in less than 10 minutes without much work, whereas with competitors you need to really study how to use them first.

Return on Investment

SpyFu

  • SpyFu has had a fairly neutral ROI for our business, as it is fairly cost-effective, but doesn't necessarily provide us with significant returns.
  • SpyFu is nice to have, and I recommend using it - even if just the free version; you really can't lose anything.
  • There are other tools out there similar to SpyFu, but if you haven't tried them yet, SpyFu can be a nice, cost-effective place to get started.
Austin Voigt | TrustRadius Reviewer

Ubersuggest

  • It helps me to rank on Google by doing keyword research
  • It doesn't provide good competitive analysis
  • Their dashboard is easy to use
  • Chrome extension for directly watching any website's statistics and data
