The only onsite SEO tool you will ever need
Opmerkingen: 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.
Pluspunten: 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.
Minpunten: there really isn't anything that I don't like about it.

The Standard in Web Crawling Software and MUST have for SEO
Opmerkingen: I've used it for personal use (free version) and for work (paid version) as both a content manager and general marketer. Primary use was technical seo checks on live and staging sites as well as occasional competitor research.
Pluspunten: In short, it can do nearly anything! And best of all, the only real limit is your creativity. For example, while launching a series of localized websites in other versions of English (UK, AU, NZ) I used it's regex function to crawl our staging sites for common American spellings that had been missed (e.g. color/colour) There's TONS of support online and neat ideas for using it. Plus the latest version can run headless (i.e. via command line) so you can install it on a cloud server to do huge crawls without hogging your own internet connection or RAM. It's a must have for doing technical seo checks of your website.
-Tons of options so not everything is super easy to find, but it's an advanced tool so that's to be expected.
-Paid version is a bit expensive for ireggular users
-Yearly license model is very annoying. Would prefer a 1 time purchase and then yearly IF you want updates like other software or plugins

The best crawling tool
Opmerkingen: It helps us a lot in SEO. Helping us to identify broken links, canonicals, meta descriptions and so on. A perfect tool with a simple job.
Pluspunten: I think Screaming Frog is a most when it comes to SEO tools. I like that is easy to use, and you can crawl all the URLs of your website and the competition. Its free version works perfectly. Also, the customer support center is awesome
Minpunten: Maybe doesn't have the greatest design. And if you dont know SEO well maybe it can be confusing. It will help if they have tutorials or an expert helping out

My favourite SEO tool!

SEO audit tool
Opmerkingen: I loved the free version of the tool I used and believe it has helped me figure out some of the missing pieces of the SEO puzzle. I would recommend not using the tool blindly like I did and read up on how to optimize your crawl (filter links using regex, etc.) before using it so that you have only the information you need.
Pluspunten: The volume of information this software provides is immense. It is very easy to figure out where your website's SEO is lacking and how to fix it. It shows you pages with missing, too short, or too long metadescriptions, page titles, headings (H1 and H2), alt texts, etc. You can also see the status codes for each crawled page, the total number of incoming and outgoing links, response time, and word count. If you export the data in Excel, you can easily filter out the information you need.
Minpunten: The sheer volume of information this tool provides was a little overwhelming at the beginning, but there are a lot of ways to optimize the crawl and filter the results so that you get only the information you need. I was not aware of it when I first used the tool.

The most powerful SEO tool for technical optimization
Opmerkingen: Couldn't do properly my SEO job without it. For a serious SEO, it is a must-have tool.
Pluspunten: Lots of features, always updated with changes in SEO landscape. You can use it for scraping, find hard to see technical issues, runs faster and can manage very efficiently resources in your machine when you are processing big websites (over a million urls).
Minpunten: Some help on the software itself could be useful (actually all support and tutorials are on its website), and some visualizations options can take too much time to load.

Must-have Software for serious SEO
Pluspunten: That you can crawl pretty fast your own but also competitor websites and get all the relevant on-site insights you need with just a few clicks. A short while ago they also added nice visualization features.
Minpunten: I really cannot say here anything negative, even if you reach out to them when you have a question they are super helpful. Maybe that it will take some time if you are new to the tool, to explore all the features they offer.

Quick and easy tool for Web Devs and SEOs
Opmerkingen: Use it a couple of times a month when i need to audit and site and look for any issues from an SEO perspective.
Pluspunten: Basically it pulls apart entired websites and give you everything from the language construction ratios (HTML, JS etc), status codes, metadata and indexability. I use this tool often to discover any pages that are low value that need to be added to the robots.txt file to improve crawl budget. Also useful for identifying 404 errors and perm or temp redirects that exist.
Minpunten: No dislikes at all. It's free, easy to use and scans whole websites extremely quickly.

Pluspunten: Free for use for websites under 500 pages. This software has a lot of features that's every SEO guru need to use.
Minpunten: I wish they had easier guides on how to filter pages and how this tool can help SEO (Case Studies). Can't complain about other options.

Technical Missing Contents on Your Website
Pluspunten: I was introduced this software by our website enhancement agency which identified me many technical deficiencies in our website, such as too many keywords, missing H1, H2 and page titles. I realized that our website did not have key technical items and I am happy that now that our website has basic elements of the technical items.
Minpunten: Maybe because of our website size, it takes a bit of time to load.

Fantastic to get an overview of a site
Opmerkingen: Has helped on many sites to see where we need to improve and what is missing on the site such as H!, alt tags etc
Pluspunten: It has so many features packed into it, all for free. It is easy to use and is very in-depth spidering software
Minpunten: It is limited to crawl 500 pages (I think) which may be limiting for larger sites. Still gives a good idea about a site though

Screaming Frog SEO tool Review
Opmerkingen: The tool does its job which is all that I ask for.
Pluspunten: Has many functions that can help me evaluate a website and an effective tool to help me complete my job.
Minpunten: Not the easiest to use. It's user interface also looks pretty outdated. It could use an upgrade to the UI experience.

It works, mostly
Opmerkingen: Needed to identify thousands of pages linked across 13 websites. I thought it did that, but later found a lot missed. Not sure if that is the software or my use of it.
Pluspunten: On the surface it seems easy. Point at a domain and you get a list back. So easy to use and get what you need. I think. But see cons...
Minpunten: I didn't always feel like this was crawling every page. Maybe it is a config issue, because the interface can be confusing. Yearly license fees make it not attractive.

Lets you get in the weeds
Pluspunten: This SEO tool is about as all-encompassing as you will find. You can really dig in and find pretty much any info you'd want here. And there's great product support for all your questions... which you'll probably have for such an advanced tool.
Minpunten: This isn't for the weekend warrior SEO. It's an advanced SEO tool, so there's a definite learning curve.
