The only onsite SEO tool you will ever need

If you do SEO, Screaming Frog is an absolutely mandatory tool. It saves you huge amount of time and gives you a deep understanding of the website you're working on. It is super useful for the initial audit, when you want to check if the site has any major flaws. With SF you can see in a glance if there are any issues with the titles and descriptions, URL structure, internal links, meta robot tags like canonicals and noindex, if robots.txt blocks access to valuable pages, and so on. You get to see H1 and H2 headings, number of words on every page, page loading speed. You see broken links and redirects. You see images without alt tags, You can sort and filter properties, find duplicates... the list goes on. It is a perfect tool and I highly recommend it.

Pros

No bugs, very easy to use, very easy to learn, very light software (no high hardware requirements), very fast, very useful, very cheap, regular updates with new features, you buy it and you have it on your pc, not web-based.

Cons

there really isn't anything that I don't like about it.

Great Value in this Tool for My SEO Process

I have found the tools inside of Screaming Frog to be extremely powerful and easy to use in order to gain an understanding of my clients' websites. The crawls allow me to gain insight rather quickly to find weaknesses in a website so that I can address the problems and ultimately help my clients to improve their technical and on-site SEO issues.

Pros

I like how easy it is to get the comprehensive reporting done very quickly with clear action items to improve my website.

Cons

I would like more functionality and formal reporting that I can show to my client instead of having to create the reports myself from the crawls.

Reasons for choosing Screaming Frog SEO Spider

I had heard great reviews about Screaming Frog and decided to make a change because of better pricing and ease of use.

Best Crawler for Manual SEO Audit

Overall, I am really happy using the tool for conducting SEO audits. It provides 360-degree status of the website health and suggests solutions.

Pros

Screaming Frog is one of the best tools for auditing and crawling the website for finding the technical seo bottlenecks. It is easy to use, simple, yet powerful. There are different aspects to audit your site from using the software that includes technical and non-technical such as content, metadata, redirects, canonicals, etc. Truly useful.It can also be integrated with Google Search Console, Analytics, Semrush, and other tools for more powerful audit and data extraction.Visualization of structure and crawling path is just fab!

Cons

It may require a lot of data and sometimes can be sluggish as the whole operation is carried by the software on your pc.
