Overall Satisfaction with CognitiveSEO

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"
  • 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.".
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.
