Likelihood to Recommend

Squirrly Limited

It is lightweight, very efficient and can be integrated in WordPress as well. When organizations want to optimize their content online, Squirrly SEO is probably the best option. It shows you exactly what needs to be improved on your page and makes suggestions. Moreover, the Focus Pages feature scans your pages and provides you with a probability of your ranking for the specific keyword.

Surfer

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.

Surfer

  • 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).

    Surfer

    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.
