Must-have on-page SEO software for any digital agency

We are an SEO agency. Surfer helps discover missing keyword opportunities, not just phrases but also singular words. This has been very helpful for many of our clients, ranging from local small businesses to national medium-sized organizations. Additionally, our top benefit is being able to run an SEO audit using the audit tool and offer a quick and free analysis for potential prospects. We have a general template setup where we focus on the most important elements in the audit ranging from the content score to page speed. Not too many agencies do this at no charge -- we do and it's been bringing us a good amount of business -- all thanks to SurferSEO!

Pros

SERP analyzer. It's a powerful tool featuring a friendly visual interface and many interesting features such as the audit and keyword density tool. Additionally being able to view SERP results based on different geographic locations is very useful.

Cons

In the keyword density tool, they once changed the relevancy descriptions from percentages to low, medium, and high. Thankfully they went back with the original percentages, which are much more accurate.

Awesome Software to Help You Surf in the SEO World

Reviewed on 2021/05/25

Pros

I like that the software is easy to use and filled with actionable tasks. Your competitors wrote more content with more relevant keywords? Well, you know how many words and what keywords to add to your page.

I also like the fact that the software keeps evolving to the user's demands. Surfer started as a basic on-page tool which then added content planner, content editor, keyword research, etc.

The interface is also easy to understand and looks beautiful. Kudos to the team who can translate complex stuff like SEO into a much simpler product which users can use easily.

Cons

I know that this software is mostly used for on page purpose. However, if in the future, it also integrates more backlink data, it can evolve into a very awesome beast and be the ultimate SEO tool.

At the moment, the backlink data is limited but it's not a deal breaker.

Reasons for Switching to Surfer

Pros

The product is easy to use. It literally makes it easy for the writer to follow keyword directions.

Cons

I don't know if you've encountered this before but for some reason it experiences some glitches that erases all the stuff I've written. Like when I'm writing a particular article, if I switch tabs or sometimes just on its own it reloads (saying that the connection was interrupted) and then all of a sudden everything is gone.

It's odd because I'm using an actual ethernet cable which makes my internet connection faster than just using a wireless one. I'm not sure why this is occurring, but it just happened again right now.

Even if I press undo over and over, the words I've written don't come back. What concerns me is that this might become a repetitive cycle, forcing me to screenshot my work all the time.

Overall, I have been extremely happy with Surfer. It has made it a lot easier to expect that I will get results from my content. One post I published instantly vaulted into the top 10, and has now settled at #7 (for a competitive keyword).

Pros

I love how easy it is to optimize blog posts. Unlike some other SEO tools, adding the keywords they recommend usually boosts the score. They also seem to have the best algorithm on the market, and I have seen decent results updating my keywords per their recommendations. It adds gamification into my content writing process, which makes it way more fun and satisfying.

Cons

I wish they had an option for pausing plans for a few moths. I'm a small business owner, and I purchased as part of their black Friday deal, so cancelling would mean I lose those perks.
