Overall Satisfaction with CognitiveSEO

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.
  • 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.

Do you think CognitiveSEO delivers good value for the price?

No

Are you happy with CognitiveSEO's feature set?

Yes

Did CognitiveSEO live up to sales and marketing promises?

No

Did implementation of CognitiveSEO go as expected?

No

Would you buy CognitiveSEO again?

No

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.
