Best SEO & SEM Software in 2018

The software landscape for search engine optimization (SEO) and search engine marketing (SEM) is dominated by a small number of vendors that offer a broad range of SEO & SEM solutions. Most of them focus on boosting a website's position on the Search Engine Results Page (SERP), increasing visibility through keyword analysis, rank monitoring, and backlink analysis.

Most vendors offer various solutions for keyword research, competitors’ analysis and content exploration. Others are better known for their crawling or outreach abilities.

Some vendors offer more advanced functionalities such as Google Analytics integrations, site audits, influencer outreach and even lead management. Moz Analytics, for example, has a browser extension called MozBar which is widely used to see the domain authority (DA) of a website.

The SEO & SEM software market is fairly diverse, in part due to the periodic changes to Google's search algorithms (such as Hummingbird, Panda and Penguin) that have improved mileage for high-quality content. This has left vendors with many avenues to distinguish themselves based on their whitehat SEO solutions, drawing a user base roughly proportional to the strength of their product offerings.

Search engine marketing software helps businesses improve their visibility on search engine results pages, usually via paid advertising. SEM tends to be focused on two key areas - Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and Pay Per Click (PPC) optimization. In order to ensure a low Cost Per Click (CPC) through paid SEM channels, software often combines SEO and SEM principles to fine-tune the content and architecture of a website prior to the promotion of it. Besides leading to a potential decrease of the CPC across different channels, SEM software can increase the click-through rate and quality score of search ads and assist with bid management. While SEO is primarily the practice of promoting the visibility of a web page or website in a search engine’s organic results, it can have ancillary benefits in decreasing the costs of paid channels as well. Software can help improve the ranking of all types of content, including images, videos, and written content.
