    I have a site that I really want to take seriously and I need to spend some money on legit tools.

    Is this a good option for my first, or can you recommend others?

    I recommend spending your money on other tools. You can find keys for the enterprise edition of SEO PowerSuite here on BHW, so no need to spend on that.

    Just to let you know, this software is more for tracking and research for kws and sites, not sure how this will help you for your site, unless thats what your looking for?

    What activities have you already done that have given you the results that you would then expect that powersuite could provide?

    IMHO this tool is for professionals, as said above if it is going to be your first tool then I wouldn't recommend purchasing it.
    I presume you also haven't used any other tools such as GSA ser, scrapebox, etc.. So don't get excited just to jump for discount offer, use the trial version of it first and look if it can help your sites in someway, then decide purchase it or not.

    ^ Called it. Got excited, discount offer. :)

    I have a lot of other areas to focus on that's more important.

    THANK YOU!

    Great decision on your part! :) The best way to test a software or tool is to use its free version. If you're still confused after using the free version, it's time for you to ask for the opinion of people here on BHW. ;)

    SEO Spyglass is a decent tool for learning more about your competitor's sites and backlinking efforts, and Rank Tracker is helpful to keep a daily historical record of how you rank on a list of keywords, so you can see if you are making any progress. Link Assistant is basically a tool to keep all of your backlinking efforts organized into one place, so you can see which ones you've completed, which are still active, and which ones you still need to reach out for. Website Auditor and Buzz Bundle I don't use, there are plenty of free online tools to audit your pages for on-page optimizations, and I don't advertise much on social media to bother with Buzz Bundle.

    My big gripe with the program is that it's already expensive, but then on top of that, you need to pay for an additional subscription service from them to help bypass all the "Captchas" you will get hit with when trying to pull reports. It makes the program practically unusable at times. They should have included some option to simply input your own list of proxies or something like that.

    Supposedly they have some new method of getting you referring search queries back in your Google Analytics reports (since Google now hides most of them) with like a 96% accuracy, or something like that - which, if it works, might also make the software worth purchasing.

    This tool is mainly used for keyword researching and website tracking, don't know actually what your needs but for first IM tools I don't recommend it.
