Overall Satisfaction with Screaming Frog SEO Spider

I've been using Screaming Frog SEO Spider for about a year now.

The tool is great for running a speedy SEO audit of an entire domain.

We got value out of the paid subscription after migrating a site over to a new URL format. It was useful for pinpointing all broken links which needed redirection.

I'd recommend the tool for anyone looking to get a bird's-eye view of there site's technical SEO health. I'd say it's good to have a basic understanding of technical SEO when using the tool. If you don't, I'm sure there are blog posts and downloaded content provided by Screaming Frog to guide your efforts.
  • Site wide Technical SEO analysis
  • Pinpointing broken links
  • Providing text based on page SEO details
  • Fast run time
  • Exporting features. There are good exporting features available, but when trying to export detailed information, it's hard to retrieve.
  • Positive ROI - saves a ton of time resource.
Well suited for: Site wide analysis technical SEO

Not well suited for: Someone looking for simple SEO recommendations.
