SEMrush Review: Details, Features & Pricing

{ object.primary_image.title }}

Here is my complete review of SEMrush . In this post you’ll see: What SEMrush does well What SEMrush doesn’t do well My opinion of SEMrush’s SEO and PPC features Whether SEMrush is worth the monthly fee A whole lot more Let’s get started. Domain Analytics This is a big picture overview of a site’s overall SEO and PPC marketing efforts. And if you want to dig deeper, you can get details on a site’s organic traffic, backlinks , PPC campaigns, engagement metrics (like bounce rate ), the site’s main competitors in Google search, and more. This report is helpful if you want to quickly see how much traffic a site gets from SEO or Google Ads . But the real value here comes from each of the detailed subreports. So let’s break down a few of these right now. Organic Research This feature is simple. Yet super powerful if you know how to use it. Organic Research tells you how much traffic a site gets from Google. And how it’s changed over the years. Yeah, it’s interesting to see how a competitor’s rankings have changed over time. But it’s not super useful. The real value in this report is the regularly-updated list of the keywords that a site ranks for in organic Google search . In my experience, reverse engineering your competitor’s keywords is one of the best keyword research strategies on the planet. And SEMrush is one of the best SEO tools on the market for this approach. That’s because SEMrush has a HUGE database of 17 billion keywords . And they update this list pretty much every day. That’s the good news. The bad news is that SEMrush’s organic traffic estimates can be pretty inaccurate at times. For example, right now SEMrush says that my website’s traffic is up 72.75%. I wish that was true 🙂 But it isn’t. This always confused me. SEMrush’s search traffic estimates would be pretty much spot on. Then, all of a sudden, it would be 2-3x off. I recently figured out why. The issue seems to be that SEMrush overestimates how many clicks a site gets on the second page of Google. For example, right now I rank on page 2 for the keyword “YouTube”. According to SEMrush’s data, that single keyword is responsible for 42.9% of my traffic. Which is simply not the case. The fact is: VERY few people …

The SEO community is always looking for new ranking factors and we have discovered over two hundred of them so far. But there may be hundreds more actually used by Google.
