Semrush Aggregated Reviews
I use SEMrush. They have two tools for this.
On Page SEO Checker which provides optimization ideas by landing page and keyword
SEO Writing Assistant, an add-on for Google Docs which lets you enter keywords you’re optimizing for and then evaluates the text and scores it (I LOVE this feature).
It might be expensive for you to give this tool to many writers… the cheapest subscription they offer is $99/mo and they charge $70 per additional user. You could potentially have them all write their content in Docs, have one person who loads the add-on for each document and then download the report and send it to them. Still clunky, but could be done with just one license.
I use SEMRUsh pretty exclusively. I typically use the Projects Dashboard to run an audit, track some keywords, use the on page checker for some quick wins, and illustrate what the value would be by improving a keyword/s position with the historical conversion rate etc. DM if you want any additional insight
Yeah I use BrightLocal, but you have to manually input keywords that you want to track rankings for. SEMrush will find them automatically — that’s the crux of this. It’s huge time saver.
I am using Semrush SEO tool for versatile use like website optimization, competitor analysis, keyword ranking, take an audit report of website, backlink analysis etc.
It is great and much helpful tool for me.
Semrush is a proper tool if you don’t like having a lot of tools, but it has its disadvantages in my opinion.
I like to use SEMrush. Its a perfect tool to do competitor analysis where you get enough of information in terms of traffic either it may be organic, ppc or through branding etc. We get clear expected results on this analysis.
I love SEMrush because it brings together features I found earlier in multiple tools. It even gives a good evaluation of the traffic & traffic sources, comparable to what you can get from a much pricier SimilarWeb. I’m really impressed by the work they’ve invested so far in the platform.
The agency I work at has a SEMrush account for most of the work we do and we just use the free Moz features like the DA toolbar extension for Chrome and the MozLocal search feature.
SEMRush is best. You don’t need any other tool.
When it comes to link building ahref is the best. For keyword research I will suggest SEMRush.
We use both, I use ahrefs more than anything. SEMrush let’s you do a competitor gap analysis more easily, but ahrefs has much more up its sleeve.
Additional key term is small. SEMrush’s analysis gets weak for large sites and anything using server render.
Semrush does changes to sites? I thought it was only a audit tool.
Well with the free version you’re limited. But the best use for semrush would be to steal keywords from your competitor and their competitors.
With the free version though, you’re not going to get far, unfortunately.
I’d say – definitely go for the free version of SEMrush, just to get a hint of what it’s all about. The SEMrush team (it seems) is now moving beyond pure SEO toolkit functionality, so for the price range, it definitely is more of a bargain than Ahrefs. As everyone else said previously – there’s a big keywords vs backlinks contest between the two tools, but if you look a bit beyond – SEMrush offers some cool features, like making link-building outreach from right within the toolkit, very cool Featured Snippets coverage, PPC, content and SMM (just as an extra). So, definitely give it a shot (although, of course, the free version will only cover the very basic needs). And then you can decide whether it’s worth spending your budget on a new tool.
Yes, SEMRush will give you better data interpretation for Keywords (Ranking Performance) and I still prefer the Website Health Audit as basis for fixing SEO related issues.
For Ahrefs they offer a different SEO focus like backlinks monitoring, content curation, keywords ranking monitoring.
So I can say these 2 tools may have some similarities of some functions, but they have separate strong suites that an SEO practitioner needs
Semrush has some pretty cool project management elements to it that can make life easy. If you use it and commit to it and the projects area you’ll have a VERY different experience than 1. the free and 2. just using the tools as needed.
If you already have Ahref, it’s a little of an overkill to get SEMrush too, unless you have the money to spare. Both tools are excellent. The biggest difference between the two is that Ahref is superior in terms of backlink database and SEMrush gets an edge when it comes to its keyword tool. Other than that, both can do pretty much the same thing without any issues. I guess, if you’re feeling that Ahref doesn’t cover you 100% you could get SEMrush but I would advise against it.

As a web agency we never could and never will be able to escape the urge of building things.
Among million other things we played with an idea of text-based games and the last piece that was missing was the story itself. So via in-house outreach platform we found two established writers that believed in the project and agreed to participate.
Shout out to Richard Abbott who wrote Fraud on Thetis and Eva Pohler who sent us a huge draft we are still reading through.
GRIN launcher is born.
It is an outreach platform that we use to establish connections with editorial teams.
They say samples of published articles look good but pricing looks even better
At some point we realised that list building, fetching contact details & outreach tech work just as well for b2b lead generation
Once, we fell in love with ecommerce, because of short feedback cycles on marketing & development efforts.
Today we ship into production inhouse SaaS project - AVOKADO - the web app for learning languages with flash cards.
The year after we built it we realised how long is the road map ahead & what resources we'd need to promote it and decided to put it on hold.
One day as we ship GRIN tech v3.0 into production we'll distrupt the language learning market with Avokado.
We love Wordpress and recently shipped two plugins into open beta for commercial sale.
