BrightEdge is very well suited for reporting and dashboards - it helps save time creating reports because of its automation, pulling keyword ranking information based on your keyword groups. It enables you to present data to specific audiences: e.g. share of voice for executive-level, vs. change in organic rank for working-level contributors.

Really happy so far. Makes it easy to take action every day and gives you the confidence to get started. Would be great to have more automation and analysis of content quality and creation, similar to Semrush and Jasper content writing tools.

I think BrightEdge is a great platform, simply based on the fact that you have a dedicated customer success manager with who you meet with you regularly. They are also always available via email to help create custom dashboards and answer any questions you have on the platform. Their data cube is great as well!

Our Brightedge client success team provides great insights and recommendations on how to best use the tool. They have helped us capture keyword analysis for our marketing stakeholders to help build better content or modify existing content. This type of effort would have taken our internal team months to do.

BrightEdge has been a long-standing partner with us. I have had 10 years of experience with using their platform. It is a very large robust platform that allows us to find the information we need and quickly. Unfortunately with the company being so large, they are unable to make quick changes and customers suggested enhancements as quickly as other platforms.

BrightEdge is a great tool for SEO analysis, specifically in regard to SERP ranking tracking, keyword analysis, competitive analysis, and task management. More so, the platform is constantly improving, and the BrightEdge team supports each of these initiatives with comprehensive training; on top of the regular meetings, we have to explore ways to use the platform better. It really is a partnership more than a platform.

Brightedge is the benchmark platform for keyword research, bar none. Beyond that, their customer and in our case agency support is unparalleled. I've never worked with a vendor or partner with this much invested in the continued use and training of their product. Our customer support team is truly a partner in our business, and in invaluable as such. Regarding new business, not only has Brightedge literally referred clients to us, but they go above and beyond to help us win new business while trusting us to recommend, sell, spec, and implement their platform with the right amount of support.

BrightEdge is the perfect tool for detailed analysis and works very well as keyword research, technical monitoring, and competitor analysis tool for projects that focus on a single domain at a time. While the price can be prohibitive, the overall product serves as an end-to-end platform that has everything you need to provide all aspects of SEO to your client(s). I would recommend BrightEdge as a tool for client-side marketing teams managing a single domain or agencies with sizable clients and the budget to justify an enterprise-level tool.

BrightEdge is ideal for companies providing enterprise SEO services to their clients. If you are just using it for your own, in-house SEO, it can be useful, but you may or may not need all it has to offer. It's a better tool in your arsenal when you are helping your clients (and many clients) to improve their own SEO.

I was new to BrightEdge when I joined my company last year. My BrightEdge team took the time and were dedicated to helping me understand the platform and went over and beyond to make sure I was comfortable using the platform. The onboarding and training was excellent. The platform is very user friendly once you understand the functions and learn to navigate the platform. BrightEdge is great for any company trying to understand and implement SEO strategies.

A small business or enterprise org with one or many teams can be successful especially with the support you receive from your client success manager. Keyword research, ideation for content, and many other ways to show performance after the creation and publishing of your content! Brightedge can help with all areas/workflows when it comes to onsite or offsite SEO tactics.

BrightEdge is well suited for a team that is looking to create more impactful content, written or video. If your team is only focused on social, I don't think there would be much value. We did not use the 'socially-focus' tools as much as others. Our team also managed multiple sites for different audience, and having one tool that could be helpful on all is great.

BrightEdge is a great platform for enterprise brands that want keyword visibility at a regional or national level. It may be cost prohibitive for brands that need hyper local tracking due to the nature of how BrightEdge structures its pricing by keyword.

Better suited for the enterprise business and not necessarily for the SMB, BrightEdge can do a lot for your SEO program. An intuitive platform that, if set up right, can help you manage your SEO program including keywords, pages, sites, competitors, and technical performance over time. It is the right mixture of having enough key SEO tools while keeping the platform free of unnecessary bells and whistles. It makes my visits to their platforms, sometimes dozens of different times a day, more laser-focused on the tasks at hand. If there is a need to scale, take advantage of their many best-in-breed self-optimization tools and see where they are taking the SEO world but the base package is good enough for many enterprises.

BrightEdge is especially well-suited for enterprise-level companies that have a bit more money to spend. The tool is most definitely worth it if you have a well-established SEO team that is looking to move beyond the basics and really dive into the data-driven decision-making world. BrightEdge is extremely powerful.

BrightEdge is a perfect one stop shop SEO tool. Working in Enterprise SEO I find this is my ideal tool, but could see how this tool would also be great for a smaller company or small SEO team. The tool is great for advanced SEO's as well as beginners. Being a team of one in a very large company, I've benefited greatly from using BrightEdge - the time it's saved me and the success we've seen from using this tool has been incredible!

If you are looking for an SEO tool for keyword research, monitoring organic ranking positions, competitive analysis, content topic recommendations, and keyword reporting, then BrightEdge is a very good tool. The Content IQ site audit could use some work. When letting a BrightEdge Customer Success Manager know about the differences that I was seeing, he said that there is no harm in using other tools to do site audits for comparison.

BrightEdge is well suited for organizations and teams that don't want to (or can't afford) the high costs associated with an ongoing engagement with a search agency/vendor. It provides SEO recommendations based on real search engine data, allows you to optimize your site and pages based on keywords you want to rank for, and also allows you to understand how your competitors rank for similar keywords (so you understand where the real opportunity is).

Excellent for in depth, long term SEO process. Quick wins, quick starts, easy sharing of simple metrics is less easy.
There is a bit of a learning curve at the beginning, and this can lead to giving up on the tool, as many users are not dedicated SEO experts, or don't have the time to dedicate to the tool.
