Great SEO Content Writing Tool w/ Beautiful UX

PROS

I like how simple it is to write SEO-friendly content. I love the writing optimization tool that ranks your content in real-time. It's simple, straightforward. It's also nice that the group on Facebook is so open to feedback, offering training, and answering questions! Makes you feel like you're not lost in some confusing, expensive software, but rather part of a community. They allow you to connect your Google Search Console for the Content Planner tool, which is a cool feature.

CONS

It was a little challenging to figure out how to really analyze keyword trends after coming from SEMrush. I hope they will update their analytics to include more visual data/graphs, as the results are (for now) simple and linear. Simple is good for beginners but I'd love to see them expand this.

Reasons for switching to Surfer

Cost and practicality for my needs (I don't need all the advanced tools in SEMrush for my role).

Expensive but most good things are

I write better articles faster. When I have outside writers create content I make sure it's Surfer optimized as that saves me a LOT of time in dealing with their content. This tool is really necessary for my business.

PROS

Normal methods for adding keywords to blog posts leave them unreadable and really stick out. Surfer helos me to write better blog posts, articles and reviews by telling me what people want to hear about. Rather than keyword stuffing, I know which topics I need to include. The help with creating an optimized outline makes the rest of the process a dream.

CONS

There are never enough Content Editor credits for the articles I want to work on. I tend to max out my credits each month but the next tier is too much higher. Wish there was an option more in the middle. Overall this means I love the software and want more of it!

Reason for choosing Surfer

I recently purchased WriterZen to use as a supplement to Surfer but it's not even in the same league. I refunded within a few hours. Surfer is far superior at this point.

Great SEO Tool

Boost of our website visibility

PROS

Favorite features include content planning, content editor, and content audit

CONS

The keyword research feature is not my favorite, however, the keyword planner makes up for this weakness

PROS

Easy roadmap to clear, predicable SEO wins

CONS

The price can be high for the AI content, but overall the value for money outweighs the costs significantly
