Plenty of SEO Data Provided by Sheer SEO

The key to success in any number of fields is to arm yourself with the right kind of information. Day traders are constantly bombarded with data about the flood market. Scientists run experiments so they too can gather useful information that can lead to eye-opening conclusions. Search engine optimization is no exception.

When you take on the task of improving your site’s SEO, you shouldn’t just go about it in a willy-nilly fashion, throwing everything out there and hoping something sticks. You need data. You need the facts. To that end, Sheer SEO is a tool that can arm you with that kind of information. Let’s get down to today’s review and see what this package has to offer.

Automates Your SEO Efforts

When you go to the main page for this SEO software, you’ll find that the developers claim it “automates your SEO efforts.” That’s true to a certain extent, but this tool is much more geared toward providing you with the data you need so that you can focus your SEO efforts one way or another.

To get a quick sense of what you can expect from Sheer SEO, you can get a sample SEO report for your website for free. On the homepage, there is a field to enter your website address. When you do, you get a real-time report that provides all sorts of useful information, like how you are ranking for some of your target keywords and keyword phrases.

Before you even get there, it even suggests some of the keywords where you may want to rank, based on the content that is currently on your site. When you sign up for an account with Sheer SEO, you gain the ability to track other metrics and data points too.

Tracking Data Over Time

Continuing with the example of how you rank for select keywords, an account with Sheer SEO lets you see these rankings over time.

For this example, we took a look at how was ranking for the search term “make money” in the United States version of Google. As you can see, the ranking fluctuated from 4th to 6th in the last two weeks or so. As you can also see, this set of SEO tools also lets you look at current competitors and historical competitors. The kicker is that tracking the rankings is only one small part of this much larger package.

Other Tools in Sheer SEO

The overview page gives you a brief glimpse into the various tools that are at your disposal with Sheer SEO. For instance, you can also track the progression of your PageRank, as well as estimate potential traffic, inspect your main referrers, and submit your site to multiple web directories.

These aren’t just stats that tell you where you were and where you are either. The keyword density tool, for instance, can offer perspective into how you are managing your content too, giving you the opportunity to make suitable adjustments. Similarly, you can use the backlink checker or the tool for counting indexed pages.

While there are other tools that may offer similar functions, Sheer SEO will also monitor Twitter for mentions of your site, as well as track all activity related to your site on Facebook, plus check the various social bookmarking sites for mentions. There is even a utility for finding relevant blogs where you can purchase blog reviews, gaining valuable backlinks that can further improve your SEO efforts.

How Much Does It Cost?

The user interface is reasonably straightforward, navigating through the various tools using the main left sidebar. How you go about using the data provided is your own prerogative, but being armed with this data will certainly go a long way.

The pricing plans can be a little confusing, considering that there are no fewer than nine options. These range in price from free (three month trial, single domain) to $199/month (agency plan, 50 domains). You don’t get into multiple domains on a single plan until you reach the “small agency” level, though you get discounts when ordering multiple domains for the smaller accounts.

    Well, this looks very promising. I’m all for automated seo, that’s what i already do, but with something like this I would consider paying for it…free tools usually only do so much. thanks for posting this!

    1. Woah, that is a wonderful resource! Thanks for sharing!

      1. PPC Ian says:

        Seems like a really cool tool set. I have not heard of this one before. I will certainly check out Sheer SEO. The UI looks good.

  2. Interesting service, but IMHO expensive…

    1. Ya I agree that it can be quite expensive, especially for those who just started out on marketing online. So for beginners, it is still advisable to go for free tools first.

  3. Phil says:

    If you have only one site, and lots of time to gather data yourself with free tools, then I think it´s of no use. Since they don´t provide solutions.
    But … At 199$/month for 50 domains, this could be a great resource for somebody planning to start an SEO agency.

    1. Erwin Miradi says:

      Yeah I agree. This kinda tool is used for someone with massive number of domains. Because if someone only have 1 domain I don’t see any point to get help from such automated SEO tool.

      1. And people with massive number of domains…either a domain reseller, a SEO consultant or a black hat marketer

        1. Erwin Miradi says:

          But according to my experience, even the domain resellers and SEO consultants are too careful when it comes to this they would think twice for such automated SEO tool. I don’t know about the blackhat marketers though..

  4. I Eat Pianos says:

    Interesting article. It’s definitely a good idea to get SEO data first – often the best keywords are not immediately obvious or even counterintuitive. Wading through the complicated search engine waters with no prior knowledge can be intimidating and ineffective.

    1. Yup, agree that such tools are very useful for analyzing SEO information 🙂

  5. kitkupon says:

    wow! 50 domains for $199/month sounds like a gift. thanks for sharing. I should try it for sure

    1. …this is if you have many domains to play with in the first place 🙂

  6. Amani says:

    this is good for people maintaining multiple website.

    1. @Amani, agreed that this is more for SEO consultancy agencies.

  7. Justin Dupre says:

    Thanks for sharing this information. Very useful indeed.

    1. Thinks that the author loves to share such information anytime anywhere dude!

  8. fazal mayar says:

    this is definitely worth to try but it looks expensive 🙂

    1. Erwin Miradi says:

      It doesn’t only look expensive.. I think it is expensive 😀

  9. Looks expensive for a newbie! when is a good time to get this? Once you have a good following or before that?

    1. Definitely when you are already making money

      1. Erwin Miradi says:

        Yeah indeed. It’s a lot of investment you need to at least make sure you’re making enough to cover the next month’s bill.

  10. Its really worth able one would like to check it out

  11. Thanks for sharing an useful post about seo data which help us to analyst our sites

  12. thanks for sharing this useful data, which will help the seo members, todo their seo work more effectively.

  13. Erwin Miradi says:

    That looks like a great tool for automated SEO. But I personally think we don’t need any automated SEO tools if we only have one or two domains. We still can handle the SEO with our own hands. The case maybe different if we have 150 domains though.

  14. fas says:

    That is some data but lots of SEO companies are coming up off late.

  15. Lalit says:

    This seems to be an excellent tool for SEO. I am a beginner and I don’t understand much about it now and just learning from your blog and with some other blogs. I have bookmarked it and hope to come back soon.

  16. deepak says:

    Nice tool, John… thanks for sharing friend 🙂

  17. Will says:

    I do not know what i think of this tool. It has some usable features but over all it dumb down SEO to much. SEO is a science but is also an art and the art part seems lost in this software.

    1. hahaha…you sound like you are a SEO expert..willing to share your experience here?

  18. Essays says:

    This type of data tracking is not available through google webmaster tool. It looks like a well built, custom made solution for SEOs.

    1. Webmaster tools give you the bare minimum of data that Google can provide you with..the rest you have got to achieve it through other means

  19. Nick says:

    This tool seems very useful. I would go and learn more about it. I’m just start my own business selling wenger backpack . This tool might help it. Nice work, thanks.

  20. can you suggest me any tools for competitors link analysis in seo.

    1. check out with semrush tool you might get some results

  21. Sounds like it could be a useful tool mostly for tracking. Just a bit on the pricey side but then it also depends on the type of clients you are working for and the price may be worth it.

  22. Just wrote a blog post featuring 6 different SEO web apps: 6 SEO Web Applications to help boost traffic

    I think looks a bit more professional than this one

  23. Dress Making says:

    Data to be tracked in seo so that we can analysis and prepare the data
