Overall Satisfaction with SEMRush

We use SEMRush primarily for keyword research and tracking, site audits and reporting. The system is used company-wide, from the SEM department to the Account Management team. Its ease-of-use and report readability are key reasons why we use the platform.
  • Site audits: This feature quickly identifies issues and deficiencies found on our client's websites so that we implement fixes to correct the issue(s).
  • Keyword tracking: This feature is great for letting us know what keywords are and aren't performing well for our client's site(s) vs. the competition.
  • Reporting: Reports are quick and easy to pull, and simple for the client to read and understand even if they have limited technical knowledge.
  • The UI isn't the most aesthetically pleasing, but despite that the platform is still pretty easy to navigate.
  • Each user needs to have their own login, as logins cannot be shared. If a user is logged in with an account and someone else also logs in with that same account, the original user is kicked out. This seems backwards to me, as I feel it would be more logical to just let the second user know that the account is not available for use. With the current setup, the original user gets booted from the system while they're in the middle of a task with no warning.
  • It doesn't play nice with subdomains. We have some foreign language clients where the non-English site is a subdomain of the English site, and the system doesn't know how to correctly report on these sites.
  • Since implementing the platform, organic rankings for our client's sites have increased exponentially.
SEMRush is simpler and easier to use compared to other platforms, yet is just as powerful.
The platform is fantastic, but it is a bit on the pricier side. I would recommend it for mid- to large-sized agencies, but it may be out of the price range for smaller agencies.
