What is the best SEMRush alternative?

I've been using SEMrush for many years, but I'd love to find a new (and better tool) for my SEO needs. 

Does anybody have any recommendations?

SEMrush is a pretty decent tool, to be honest, especially for competition research.

I do however think there's a couple of tools you could explore as a SEMrush alternative

  1. Ahrefs
  2. Google's keyword planner
  3. Sistrix
  4. SearchMetrix
  5. SEOchat Tools (early days - but free)


To be honest, I use a combination of tools, personally, if I had to choose one though (forgetting about the cost) I'd choose Ahrefs.

Good advice?

I was thinking of Ahrefs. Sistrix also looks interesting, I'll do some digging - thanks!

Moz is also good - I use SEM Rush and I love it.

What is the reason you are thinking about something else?

Good advice?

Their backlink data seems a little bit behind - read here: https://backlinko.com/best-backlink-checker, I've got to say though... I do think I would miss some of their other features.

Is there a budget you are working on? 

No budget: google related search terms, keyword surfer

Low budget: Keysearch

Mid budget: KWfinder

High budget: Ahrefs

Good advice?

Serpstat is another in-depth research tool that I found in 2019. In regards to helping people identify keywords that were winning, They've done some work.

Good advice?
