The Search Monitor is very user-friendly, easy to use and it has excellent customer support team/sales team that is really helpful in all corners. This tool has been part of my organization for the last 2 years and I can say my experience has been very exceptional, by this I mean it has been so helpful especially when it comes to marketing strategies. What I like mostly about this tool is able to capture all our advertising activity on paid search, organic search, social media, and most of all the mobile search for our brand and affiliate compliance and also for competitive Intelligence.
  • Limitless possibilities which we present our information with different graphs and charts which makes it more granular.
  • Has live search results, like I can search for our brand on different devices in different cities and I am able to see which competitors are more aggressive and bidding more in geo locations.
  • I also like this tool provides all the data we need to get trademark infringers off our SERP.
  • This tool is easy to use,easy to configure and learn how to use.
  • I was not able to set up automatic search and reports emails to the engines.
  • The UI feels a bit old and it's not so much user-friendly, and due to large data crashes more often.
The fact that there are limitless possibilities which user can present information with different graphs and charts adding different segments which makes it more granular. We are also able to discover local competitors and protect our brand in the cities and regions that has been our first priority in our business growth and development.

According to my experience The Search Monitor Tool is very easy to use, cost effective and it's been so effective and helpful in my organisation expecialy boosting our marketing strategies.The most thing that I like with this tool is that we are able to easily discover local competitors and protect our brand in the cities and regions that matters the most to our business growth and development.
  • Its a very comprehensive, easy to use tool, it has no steep learning curve, the support team is very user-friendly, and proactive 24/7.
  • We are able to monitor our SEM, SEO, Landing Pages, Social Media Accounts like Twitter, Blogs and also Ads on both Desktop and Mobile Phones.
  • This tool is easy to navigate and has all data that we need.
  • I don't like the UI it looks old and outdated even when it has been changed.
  • I also dislike that you can't set up automatic search and report emails to the engines easily.
The Search Monitor has played a major role in transforming my organisation. We had to basically switch from another vendor and we have a reason to smile. We've been able to easily track and take action on unauthorized ads and trade mark use. Its an easy to navigate tool and has also everything we need to boost our business marketing strategies in a short while.

This really essentially keeps a business ahead of its competitors and detects up and coming competition. You can submit ad violations with ease if you were just doing it yourself. It also features hourly crawling which is invaluable in today's internet landscape for online businesses. This really helps a company get better paid search results.
  • Crawling
  • Cross-devices
  • alerts
  • Great user interface
  • Different types of alerts
  • iPad better integration
It would be less appropriate for businesses that cannot afford its services. I believe that almost any company can benefit from this but it needs to make sense financially. It is really well suited for mid-large businesses who want to target consumers through search engines and wants to stay ahead of competitors and see what keyphrases and words that they are using to better suit your content.

It's been used as part of the strategy building activities for different clients at the marketing agency. We were using it to see competitors performance on the keywords we were bidding on. It was giving quite a good overview of any specific period we chose. The information gave us insights on how we should improve our bidding strategies in order to get a bigger market share. Also, the dashboard of the Search Monitor as a whole was very helpful. Our company was paying for a specific amount of keywords, which we could add to our profile and see some insights on them. We were doing this for our biggest clients back then.
  • Competitors bidding against our keywords
  • Threat analysis
  • Automatially sending alerts if specific metrics change
  • The payment plan for a number of keywords is a bit restricting.
It's well suited when it comes to analysis of competition, as well as ad copy improvement. It's good with page recommendations, keywords analytics and backlinking management. It might be not the best tool for keeping data all in one place and task management.
