Product Details

What is CognitiveSEO?

CognitiveSEO is a suite of SEO tools for digital marketing agencies, SMBs, or solo web professionals, designed to present a complete tool suite for detecting and repairing issues that might reduce traffic to a website, as well as optimize content.


The CognitiveSEO audit tool presents a score representing a website’s overall SEO health, and provides best practice recommendations to guide content managers or webmasters towards a high performing website. Audit capabilities include backlink analysis, technical SEO audit, content analysis and optimization, keywords research and rank tracking, as well as Google-specific penalty prevention and recovery. Specifically CognitiveSEO will help the user prevent penalties due to Google’s real-time, spam prevention Penguin algorithm.


Site optimization from CognitiveSEO relies on Natural Language Processing (NLP), and aims to help content creators write content that is appealing to both readers and search engines. The vendor states their tool supports all languages and countries, and can optimize content for any type of business worldwide, on global or local search.


CognitiveSEO’s services can include customizable marketing reports, which can also be whitelabelled for marketing firms using CognitiveSEO. Reports can emphasize any areas of interest administrators choose, such as link analysis, social visibility, or rank tracking. Its Google Analytics integration enables report builders to aggregate important KPIs.


Competitive analysis is available on CognitiveSEO’s starter plan, and on its Business plan. The Business plan is accompanied with 1-on-1 onboarding and a dedicated account manager for customer success, as well as bespoke analyses and reports to suit the needs of the user.


CognitiveSEO has been operating since 2010, and is headquartered in Romania. The vendor boasts rapid growth based on adoption by SEO specialists, and companies across a variety of industries such as education, real estate, software, and ecommerce.

  • Significant ROI on marketing campaigns by boosting our application output by 25%.
  • Extensive target marketing that attracts new clients to products we specialize in through detailed keyword searching across many different websites.
  • More efficiency for each individual sales representative in-house to obtain data quicker and sort leads more effectively.
CognitiveSEO specializes in target marketing for more efficient marketing campaigns and lead generation. While I am not too familiar with other competing products, I would highly advise using CognitiveSEO above all due to the efficiency, turnaround time, and customization features to attract new leads based on specific criteria that relate to your products and daily procedures.
We have not needed to use CognitiveSEO's technical support much as are campaigns normally run quickly and successfully on our end each day. Sometimes we will reach out however if there is a question regarding keyword usage and time frame for our marketing campaigns. The technical support has been very quick and efficient when responding to our very few questions, however.

Cognitive SEO is a good tool for SEO. We mainly used it for tracking KW's and the main feature for blogging, where you can use it to score your blogs as you write them and include KWs, etc. However, for the price, it just isn't worth it. We used it for a while and although it was a good product, there are other ways of doing the same job. Although this puts it all in one easy to use place, it would not be beyond a good blogger to do this themselves with their own list of KWs.
  • Good tool for tracking KW's when writing a blog post.
  • Easy to see the KW rankings all in one place.
  • Way overpriced.
  • The tools are not entirely accurate and we found GA to still be the best source for data.
If it was half the asking price, I would be inclined to recommend it. But as it is, I cannot recommend this tool as you are better off saving your money and spending an additional 10 minutes researching and using a list of KWs.
Also, the support is very poor and does not respond for days, when you have questions. So again for the price, it is an overpriced service and a poor tool that does not fix enough of a problem. I cancelled the renewal a couple of weeks before the subscription expired and they cancelled my entire account. So I didn't even get everything I subscribed to, which for me was the final straw.

  • Positively, it does help you keep track of KW's and research when writing blogs and gives additional ideas, which saves further research into similar KW's for what FAQ questions to complete.
  • Not helpful enough to warrant the huge price tag.
They do not respond quickly to any questions or the one time I had an issue. I had resolved the issue myself before they gave a response.

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.

  • We've cleaned up link profiles which clients have appreciated
  • With the on-going link monitoring we've spent less time re-auditing link profiles
  • Anchor text monitoring also sped up our toxic review
Majestic and Ahrefs are great tools and we use them with CognitiveSEO but for different reasons. Majestic and Ahrefs have more comprehensive link databases while cognitive gives us more updated link information and more detailed link anchor text information. Cognitive also allows us to tag anchor text as different categories such as, "branded" "commercial" and "misc.".

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.

  • Beneficial performance in content optimization
  • Mitigating risk from backlink profile
  • Linkbuilding from mentions monitoring
CognitiveSEO has some unique content optimization features and backlink analysis and auditing features that set it apart from other similar tools. For the price point it's well worth experimenting with to see if you can find value in using it.
