Cons

One of the many challenges is the loss of features.

I dislike having to look around to find features I'm looking for.

When canceling the billing cycle, the usage stops, so you cannot login and use the software for the remainder that you have paid for.

Everything has been a frustrating struggle. Many features that are included with the starter level of other online SEO platforms cost extra with SEMrush.

SEMRush has been horrible to learn and work with. Nothing is intuitive or user-friendly.

It's sad that I would have to pay almost half of my subscription price just to have a second user be able to access our account.

Raven Tools

One of the Best SEO Tools

Reviewed 2 years ago

Very good! We transitioned over from SEMrush and it's a night and day difference. SEMrush is fairly complicated to use and does not cater to smaller businesses. Raven Tools gives us all of the tool necessary to perform effective SEO and detailed reporting.

Pros

I really love the ease of use for the backlink explorer as well as the way the reporting dashboard feels and displays information. It really makes our small digital marketing company look that much more professional and increases our SEO workflow and productivity.

Cons

There doesn't seem to be a way to automate reports to show last month's data over the previous month, ie month-over-month automated reports. We've tried reaching out to support on this and haven't gotten anything back in regards to if this is possible or not. It seems like a basic thing to do as there are a ton of applications for continues month-over-month reporting that doesn't have to be manually set each month. This wastes a lot of time, especially when you have dozens of clients expecting reports on the 3rd of the month.

Great SEO Tool

Reviewed 2 years ago

Raven site audit has been helpful for auditing sites and working through technical items. Overall this has been a solid tool that I've enjoyed using and having access too.

Pros

The easy to use interface and building of reports make it great! Online reports are nice for sharing too.

Cons

Lacks some of the tools I use heavily with others like SEMRush -- organic research and the keyword tool not as robust.

Great All-in-One Tool

Reviewed 2 years ago

All in all, we have been happy with our Raven experience. The reports are very customizable and visually appealing.

Pros

Being able to integrate Call Rail with Raven has been very helpful in our reporting to clients.

Cons

Being able to see the areas of the SERP where a keyword can rank (like SEMRush does) would be a beneficial feature. Additionally, some sort of topic research to aid content creators in looking into potential article keywords/topics is lacking

Nice product but the price is little high for small business.

Pros

This is one of the best Digital Marketing Tool. it's social media planner help me a lot and site daily site crawl feature is very fast and good as compared to raven tools.

Cons

plan pricing are too high if you are having only 1 or 2 sites. it's best for company with 5 or more sites.

Lightning fast intelligence about any websites or keywords that I choose to run!

Pros

The ability to plug in a website URL and quickly see (1) which keywords it is ranking for and (2) what keywords it is buying in paid search is in a word, invaluable. This has on more than one occasion helped me to secure a new client. Thus, the software has paid for itself many times over already. The Website Audit feature is very good and competitive with anything else out there -- Raven Tools, A Hrefs, MySiteAuditor, etc. The new SEO Ideas functionality is a very awesome, very promising feature that will definitely keep me renewing for another annual subscription.

Cons

The Link Audit Tool is a little weak. Not quite good enough for me to be able to let go of my A Hrefs subscription. I hope this will improve so I can cut back on my very high "Tool Overhead" costs.
