    I'm gonna have to buy one...

    Which is better for paid SEM reports on competitors Adwords campaigns, SemRush or SpyFu?

    They're about the same price and seem very similar. I've used Semrush for organic research a lot in the past but not PPC.

    It actually depends on what do you exactly need - both tools are great :)
    If you are interested in global, world-wide research, then it's definitely SEMrush - they have 26 regional databases which include over 100 million keywords
    If it's local market you need - just track all the ads keywords in SEmrush position tracking tool and see how you and your competitors are doing. This data updates every single day, which is really handy ;)

    I used both but I prefer SEM rush over spyfu, but it looks like another member had a bad experience with spyfu:"My story,
    On January 27, 2013 I bought monthly package of $79/month and found out it's useless for me within few hours later.
    Their data is poor and sucked compared with semrush or many others (which i have used).
    Based on what they claimed here:
    i sent a refund request to all of their contact mails, not 1 but 3 mails to their support, sales, and press division.
    for the first time i got this:

    Thank you for contacting SpyFu support! We strive to answer all questions within 24 hours, except on weekends.
    If it is during our business hours (8am-5pm mountain standard) you can also reach us on livechat. Once you're logged into SpyFu the livechat link should be in the footer of most pages.

    Nothing happened and after few days i sent more mails. They just ignore it. I guess they filter and they are scared of all mails which tittle related to "refund". If not, why they dont respond to the later ones except for the first.
    It's has been 30 days.
    They just kept silent and the money too.
    i have to change my CC due to their illegal second charge of $79
    will file a report to ripoff
    Just stay away from spyfu and use your money somewhere else.

    PPC wise, I would definitely go for Spyfu since they offered me a lot more keywords when it came to stealing a competitors keywords.
