Overall Satisfaction with Semrush

Used to analyze client's websites and digital marketing. It is one of the main tools we use for this purpose.
The Projects feature measures key metrics for the website's physical structure, as well as traffic keywords and social media. The reports on the website give detailed info on steps to improve performance and speed. We just hand that to our developers to make the changes. The keyword and organic traffic reports give insight into the client's strengths and opportunities. The report generation feature is very functional and easy to customize or even add slides from outside Semrush. We use it for most of our client reporting. We use Semrush in our pitches to prospects. We can show them easy ways to improve their websites and marketing. I’ve been using it since 2014. I’ve tried other tools like Ahrefs and Moz but prefer Semrush.

  • Analyze the physical structure of the website and offer solutions to increase speed and performance.
  • Covers all major buckets of digital marketing and ranks against competitors.
  • Easy custom reports function.
  • Monitors websites and warns of errors and issues.
  • The keyword tool can be difficult. At times, we need to make sure words are relevant to the site being analyzed.
  • Toggle between projects features and other features could be smoother.
  • Choosing competitors should be constant by the client. Right now, you have to identify if each function should be global.
  • Projects
  • Reports
  • Competitors
  • Social media
  • Positive effect on the ROI managing client goals and expectations.
  • Website performance improvement.
  • Reports generation and customization.
Semrush has an easier interface. Even an entry-level analyst can easily navigate and compile useful data. I did not like Ahref's interface. Ahref's gave more details on certain digital marketing activities but it was not presented in an easy to use way, and clients like the reports from Semrush and the way recommendations are highlighted.

Very well suited to measure the performance of website and effectiveness of digital marketing. It can be used to help land prospects, as well as manage existing clients. Excellent at compiling reports for clients and hones in on opportunities for client's websites and marketing efforts. It had trouble sometimes with subdomains. It measures the main domain.
