    Just seems like there would be some other options out there just as good (if not better...) for less.

    Feedback appreciated!

    It really depends. If you are playing with lot of SEO then it will make your work very easy. I use their free search because it cover my 70% work, for other 30% i don't want to spent $70 :)

    It is pretty good but why you want to buy it. Get it from fiverr. Someone sells there some 20 reports. I had bought one this month and those reports were sufficient for me to start 1 site. Its worth it but its very costly to have it

    one of the best seo tools, yes it includes one of the best in terms accuracy and simplicity too... it depends on your seo knowledge though... a tool is just a tool, unless the user can maximize the potential of the tool,it's just a tool

    true indeed.
    i'm definitely a noob when it comes to SEO (although i've been in IM now for close to 4 years..)

    looks like the learning curve isn't that high.

    i'd mainly use it for my own sites and spying on competition.

    I can see needing it... it's needing it every single week that I can't see. I only "need" it a couple months out of the year... so why pay for monthly every month is a better question. Especially when they offer no yearly great deal.

    As was mentioned, it depends on your needs. If you work in seo team/company, making a lot of things will be easier. For starters the most valuable option is to split costs with somebody.

    semrush is invaluable IMO - well worth the monthly investment for me as an SEO. No other tool can do what it does as well as it does.

    It is a great tool for finding longtail keywords. Although you wouldn't want to target them as main keywords you can write about them in blog posts. I don't have a paid account but I use therankingguys who run a report for me every month

    It doesnt check the difficulty but it tells you where a site ranks and for what keywords.

    Unbeatable KW research all day + spy on your competitor's AdWords campaigns + find KWs your site is ranking for that you can boost + competition index .... It's invaluable. If anything just shh split it between a few people shh

    If you need to monitor your stat, run some SEO analysis for a month it's ok
    but if you are not an SEO provider or individual with lots of sites to manage
    then it's basically not worth it.

    You can simply use free version of Majestic SEO, Power Suite, Openexplorer, Semrush
    and others to find your way..
