SurferSEO

SurferSEO is a powerful and technical SEO tool for any writer to rank on Google. It would be too much information, even overwhelming at times, for someone who has never had experience with this kind of work before, but there's tons of detailed knowledge available when it comes to understanding the features that are most relevant while still meeting your goals in mind.

Great at providing content briefs as well as for seeing the types of topics that rank well competitively. It's also good with finding content that needs to be refreshed which is a super easy way to drive near term SEO results.

Joseph Kahn | TrustRadius Reviewer

Topic

  • Using the GSC data to find new, adjacent content opportunities.
  • They are using GPT-3 for title generation and would love to see it used to provide more content suggestions beyond the titles/descriptions
  • Sometimes it doesn't surface 'questions' that people are asking related to lower volume terms but not sure of a way to solve that

Alternatives Considered

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.

Topic

Topic was way less costly than MarketMuse with similar functionality. It was agnostic to CMS (WordLift is designed for Wordpress only). So it was priced well with all the functionality we needed.
