Searchmetrics is certainly one of the best enterprise seo software solutions, but their pricing model was always confusing. It was never really clear how to differentiate the Searchmetrics Essentials product vs. the Searchmetrics Suite.
Well..that is a problem of the past: Searchmetrics announced a new pricing model and a clear differentiator:
Searchmetrics essential is “just” for research, meaning you can pull visibility data, social scoring, overall rankings and so on.
The Searchmetrics suite on the other side is the enterprise model where you add your projects and analyze it over time.
We like both products and love how they now have consistant pricing.
Another news from their end is the API, which seems to be a powerful weapon after Panda and Penguin.Especially link builders now have the opportunity to run their link building efforts against the Searchmetrics score. A low score could indicate that the domain has a penalty or just doesn’t show up in the search rankings.
