Pros

Have used SEMRush for SEM keyword analysis and competitive keyword analysis. I find the tool good for doing keyword expansion. Also keyword analysis. May also be useful for SEO.

Cons

The competitive spend data wasn't exactly accurate so I wouldn't rely on it.

Value for the money

Good Tool. Many SEM marketers use it.

Pros

SEMrush is an awesome tool for search engine marketing. I use this tool to see just how viable keywords are to rank on seo and their competition with their KD score. It's pretty accurate and you can tell what will rank with no backlinks or 10-50 and then huge keywords you need lots of backlinks. It's pretty accurate on search volume as another metric to see SV for your keywords. Overall it's a good tool and gets most things you done need for SEM.

Cons

A bit not as accurate as Keyword planner on search volume and ahrefs is a bit better for backlink checking.

Value for the money

Pretty good value on the normal plan at at 99 or 199 a month. Overall solid value for a small agency to use the tool or a small company online. Generates reports too.

Pros

SEMRush is a powerful and versatile tool that we used a lot in the SEO company I worked for. It has some of the most trusted metrics as far as SEO research goes. It's also pretty easy to use, which isn't true of all the big SEO software out there. I used this a lot for researching traffic of sites when searching for places to try guest posting. We needed to find sites with certain monthly traffic levels, rather than sites that only have 1 month of high traffic (which you can view the historical traffic for).

Cons

The pricing structure is kind of annoying. If you have clients and are looking to create reports for them, pricing shoots up. If you wanted to track information for more than a few sites, pricing shoots up as well.

Value for the money

If you are just doing research and work for your own site(s), you should be able to get by on the base plan. You can do a lot with this tool, so it's definitely worth the money. However, I still prefer Ahrefs to SEMRush, even though it costs more.

Pros

I have used SEMRush for years. Very helpful insights for search. They constantly make me aware of errors on sites, what to improve upon, and give important information about warnings that could cause a problem with my sites. They do not oversell themselves. They offer true value and if you want to buy, good for you. If you do not, good for you. Truly do not pressure you so it makes you want to do business with them.

Cons

I think that not enough people are made aware of SEMRush and need help to find their service.

Value for the money

Superior value for the money!!!

Pros

SEMRush is my favorite search marketing tool. While tools like Yoast are native to WordPress, SEMRush is a website that you can use to do keyword research, competitive stalking and keep track of your backlinks and tons of other SEO/SEM metrics. Frankly, the thing that might even be the most useful is researching competitors to find keyword categories to target and backlinks to try and procure. I also love the homepage setting, where I can add a list of my competitors and track their metrics as well. This is an important tool for any search marketer -- it will help you do your job better and it will be ROI positive, guaranteed. I love it.

Cons

*The Chrome extension for SEMRush is very limited, Moz and Ahrefs have better ones. *The user interface is a little difficult to navigate, but perfectly acceptable.

Value for the money

4/5 It's a bit expensive, but so are Moz and Ahrefs too. Just a relatively expensive category.
