As a result I have been incredibly poor about putting up to posts that I have been planning. They always seem to be 99% done and that last 1% hits the limit as x approaches infinity.
My review of SEMRush is one such long overdue post. SEMRush contacted me several months ago because I am an avid user of the service and asked me if I would write a review. Since I love the product I enthusiastically said I’d do it. They even offered to comp the service for me (I guess that counts as disclosure right?). But as I tried to put together the definitive review of SEMRush while trying not to spill coffee on my computer during a trans-oceanic flight I found that I could never quite get there – besides “Thor” was always on on-demand. Then “The Hangover II” came on and I decided to channel my inner-Steve Jobs and ship like a real artist.
It was then that I read SEOBook’s review of SEMRush and decided that this SEMRush Review was just a “hobby” and perhaps I should leave the reviewing to the pros. So go read Aaron’s review. It’s great and there’s even a free SEMRush Promo Code. (I even ripped off the image on this post from them).
In the meantime here’s why I find SEMRush valuable:
- You can see a lot of keywords that a specific site ranks for. It’s hit or miss for small sites but works well for bigger ones
- You can see a lot of keywords that a specific site buys Adwords for.
- You can see sites that target similar keywords
- There’s a lot more features and they keep adding more all of the time
For you SEO consultants out there, perhaps my favorite use of SEMRush is when a prospect calls. I pull up SEMRush, type their domain in and in seconds I can blow their mind by saying things like “how much traffic are you getting for “Michele Bachmann sucking on fried butter on a stick”? or why are you buying ppc traffic for “Chuck Norris Birthday Cake”?
Anyways SEMRush is awesome. Go check it out. And don’t forget to tell them that Andrew’s lame review sent you.

I’ve just started playing with it via a trial and found it provides some unique insights that I can’t find from the public domain.
Competitor insights are great. Seeing what keywords they are doing great for provide ideas and the competition graphs show the sort of progress my clients understand.
I have a meeting tomorrow with my piers in the morning, I will be bringing this to the table. Thanking you in advance for making me look good!! What a great tool!!
Is Kelly the best high school football coach ever? Probably not. Are his players the best players ever? Again probably not. Does Coach Kelly understand the power of thinking outside the box, and developing his own strategy on the fundamentals of the game? You bet he does!
In 1984 Ben & Jerr’ys Ice Cream wanted to raise investment funds to build a new manufacturing plant. At the time they were already on their way to building a strong brand that was shipping across New England. Because of this, venture capitalists were keen to put money into their success. But both Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield had different ideas about building a business.
We have taken semrush.com’s paid subscription couple of months back and now wanted to unsubscribe and there is no way to unsubscribe the paid subscription. I did many emails to SEMRush.com about the unsubscription of paid account but did not reply single time.
They simply just want money in any way not anything else. Spammers or lawyers what should i say? don’t know.
