Best Tool for Technical SEO Audit

Overall I am very satisfied with Screaming Frog. From the day I started using Screaming Frog, I have been able to solve many more technical issues on my projects.

PROS

The best thing I like about screaming frog is its ease of use and speed. It gives a lot of technical SEO issues with all the details and their solution as well. Many of those issues other tools cannot detect, like HSTS security issues and more. For me, it's a must-have tool for a technical SEO audit.

CONS

Sometimes it does not reflect the changes even if the problem is solved on the website. Due to that, I had to re-run the tool multiple times. It happens frequently.

Its Good For Technical Seo but we have to look for another tool for Keyword Research, competitor analysis, and backlink. it would be great if they include other SEO tools

Reasons for switching to Screaming Frog SEO Spider

Fewer Options not having the option to do keyword research, backlinks audits

A big leap of faith if paying

Although it surpasses its competitors in terms of the amount of information displayed, I don0t like having to start from scratch, or for it to crawl what it shouldn't - which puts you over the 500 url limit... even on a small site.

PROS

There are so many features - most of which are available in the free version

CONS

As far as I could see - there was no way to only crawl the links I provide. I could also not locate a way to save the progress to check on another day, meaning I have to start from scratch every time. This, however, wouldn't be an issue in the paid version as far as I can see

Reason for choosing Screaming Frog SEO Spider

I went with SheerSEO instead after testing the free versions of each.

Technical SEO at your fingertips

Screaming Frog helps me quickly identifying website issues that are typically red flags for clients, allowing fast improvement while running triage on future items identified from the site crawl.

PROS

I needed to pull real-time crawls of extensive client sites. The free plan allows 500 URL's, which is a good start for small sites, but the Unlimited access from a paid plan is essential for any mid-size or enterprise sites. Easy data export into CSV for documentation or graphical manipulation. Super simple interface and navigation that isn't bloated with design complexity.

CONS

Some data fields could have include a better description of what they are pulling for values. A simple question-mark adjacent to the field would help, rather than having to hunt down documentation on their site. The user-interface hasn't been updated in ... well, ever. That could be improved, though I like the simple aesthetic, which I'm sure helps the application run quickly.

Reason for choosing Screaming Frog SEO Spider

Raw data easily exported. Quick crawls without a limit.
