The Competition

Two services comparable to ProRankTracker are SEMRush and HubSpot Marketing. Here is how the three of them compare:

 Price

ProRankTracker’s basic plan starts at $25 per user per month, and HubSpot’s entry-level plan costs $50 per user per month, making both these applications suitable for small to medium-sized businesses. SEMRush charges almost $100 per user per month for the basic plan and comes with more functionality for higher-level plans, making it ideal for larger businesses.

 Business Setting

ProRankTracker is ideal for small and mid-size companies (up to 1,000 users). HubSpot’s services are geared more towards startups and small companies, and most of their customers are businesses with fewer than 50 people. SEMRush is designed for use by professionals, and it supports deployments for 1,000+ users. It is a great tool for the likes of professional marketing departments and public relations agencies.

 User interface

ProRankTracker and HubSpot have very clean and easy-to-use user interfaces. Sort your data, apply filters, or break down search terms with just a few clicks. SEMRush, by comparison, is a little clunky and can look somewhat cluttered, and many users have said it is sometimes difficult to find certain filters and features when you first start using the product.

Final Verdict

ProRankTracker has tried to position itself as the go-to SEO and keyword research tool for businesses of all sizes, but it lacks a few features that large companies would need, such as link management and integration with Google Analytics. However, its research services, ease of use, and site audit features have made it the preferred SEO tool of thousands of global clients, and it does a great job of helping you take your search ranking initiatives to the next level.
