We use it initially in our link auditing stage with clients and on-going for link monitoring. Cognitive SEO allows us to keep track of the toxic links that pop up and the anchor text used. We then are able to build a trend line to identify patterns of outreach wins and fails.
  • New link alerts
  • Competitive analysis
  • Toxic link reports
  • Exporting data is doable but a little confusing
  • The anchor text tagging is a bit cumbersome
  • Toxic link warnings can seem a little "the sky is falling"
When we have clients that are in a competitive landscape we need to monitor their links (live and lost) more aggressively than others. CognitiveSEO allows us to get daily alerts on new links that come in so we can review these quickly and make decisions to disavow them before these links become a problem.

CognitiveSEO Review: "A unique SEO tool in a sea of similar tools"

I primarily use the content optimization features to ensure our content is structured to perform well in search and the link auditing features to mitigate any risk of negative search engine outcomes from our organic backlink profile.
  • The link auditing features are fast and easy to use
  • The platform is constantly being improved with interesting beta features
  • The content optimization tool is clever
  • The interface can be clunky
  • It's a bit too all-in-one for me as I use other solutions for features like rank tracking and mentions
  • You are unlikely to use all the features you are paying for
It's a nice feature set for mid-size to enterprise SEO companies as well as agencies where you have dedicated SEO professionals. Probably a poor fit when SEO is only a small aspect of your overall job.
