Serpstat Aggregated Reviews
Their “cheapest” (highly expensive) plan is way too limited to be of much use. I gave up on ahrefs. Too money hungry. Serpstat is decent. Their cheapest plan is also quite limited, though still useful, but at least it’s actually a reasonable price.
This isn’t free but you can get lifetime access to a custom Serpstat starter plan that’s better than Serpstat Plan A for $39
It’s worth the extra $ to use a better platform. We used SerpStat in the past and it was awful. The UI alone made using the tool a chore.
Pros of Serpstat:
+ Detailed analytics at the URL level (not only the domain level)
+ Captures all top 100 search results so you can track your position changes as well as competitors
+ Affordable pricing
+ Serpstat finds all the keywords you rank for (not only those you ask it to check for like some tools)
+ The ‘Missing Keywords’ feature shows all the keywords that competitors are ranking for but you are not. This can be conducted for URLs also!
+ Chat support is responsive and thorough
+ Serpstat has PPC ad data
Cons of Serpstat:
– No SEO toolbar/Chrome extension
– No clickstream data for more accurate keyword statistics
– Backlink and keyword databases currently aren’t as large as competitors
– No integration with Google Search Console or Google Analytics
– No way to evaluate a group of keywords (keyword lists)
– No link intersect tool
– No keyword difficulty metric
– Slow at times
I was using PS until I bought into Serpstat. No going back now. Serpstat has all the info you want on one page, unlike PS where you have to switch between programs. I compared ranking details between the two and the both were very close to actual. However PS wasn’t seeing back links as well as Serpstat.
I started using Serpstat as well and I think is a great tool. Provides accurate SERP.
Our agency recently migrated from Linkdex to SerpStat (Business plan E I think)
SerpStat is amazing in my opinion, very clean UI and easy to use, support is freakishly amazing, like they respond within 5min every time, can look at rankings in different states and geo locations (amazing for national/ multi state clients)
We also have a Ahrefs account, never used Majestic at any of the companies I’ve worked for so can’t comment on that but I would say SerpStat
Edit in accounts we’ve input into SerpStat the back link index is sometimes higher in Serpstat which I was extremely surprised at
We use SerpStat mainly for backlink monitoring. I guarantee their backlink index isn’t nearly as strong as SEMrush or Ahrefs, but we have had zero problems and it’s backlink index seems fairly strong and it’s consistent. We too use the $39/lifetime deal, couldn’t pass it up – at that price, it’s a no brained and great tool. I would, in fact, be willing to pay more and monthly to use it too.
I use SerpStat and constantly wish I had access to ahrefs or SEMrush instead.
it’s “okay” and “does the job” but there does not seem to be much development going on to add new features. You will always have to take these tools with a pinch of salt and everyone will have their favorite, but for basic “what is my competitor ranking for” and backlink tracking, it is ok.
Probably not as good as ahrefs or SEMrush (or even Moz … ::ugh! wash my mouth out!::) but for $39 it’s a good buy.

v0.1.5.1 GRIN games emerged
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.
At some point we realised that list building, fetching contact details & outreach tech work just as well for b2b lead generation
v0.1.3 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.
v0.1.2.2 King The Monk - wordpress plugin to virally grow your email list
