    Pros: 

    Easy Interface

    Cons: 

    Nada

    I never took SEO audits seriously until I started with the beta of Sitebulb. The interface is easy to use and the segmentation makes organizing and knowing what to focus on effortless!

    I already bought a subscription - came here to support a great product!

    Pros: 

    Nice visualisations which are easy to understand or send straight to clients.

    Covers everything from tiny to pretty big sites

    Cons: 

    Adding sharable client reports and page type segments are on the way, and I can't wait.....

    I've been using Sitebulb during the beta period, and found it really useful for any projects involving SEO, whether that's doing a quick overview and check, or a full website audit.

    I've used most of the competitors, and it seems to be the best yet for being able to run a full website crawl and analysis in a way that's easy to understand and share. Which means I can easily use it to demonstrate to clients without having to explain reams of spreadsheets (which is nice).

    Crawled urls by depth is a really nice addition to help locate bottlenecks with navigation and internal linking

  • Pros: 

    As others have mentioned the crawl visualizations are unique and super helpful for diagnosing issues with site structure

    Cons: 

    I don't have any issues with the tool but there is overlap with tools like Deep Crawl and Screaming Frog (I have started to use all three)

    The tool is really useful and affordable, and having been a part of the beta the development team was super responsive and active in getting / responding to feedback and making updates, and are obviously users / smart SEOs themselves so I'm sure the tool will continue to evolve and offer more cool / valuable features over time.

    Pros: 

    Crawl Map Visualisations, Easy to understand reports

    Cons: 

    White label Reporting for Agencies

    I've been fortunate enough to be able to test out @Sitebulb as part of the beta release and I am also a long term user of @urlprofiler (also by Gareth and Patrick)

    This is a great tool and I have had very few issues crawling sites in excess of 100k URLs

    Pros: 

    Simple to use. Easy to understand

    Cons: 

    Segmentation ;)

    Ive been using this as a beta user for some time and for the price you arent going to find anything else that points you in the right direction like sitebulb does. It makes complex technical issue easier to understand and the exports are super organised.

  • Michael J. KovisI built a Death Star with my mind.
    Pros: 

    Amazing UI. Fantastic visuals and reporting.

    Cons: 

    If you need a fast site crawl, this tool isn't for you.

    Sitebulk is easily lives up to their homepage statements of being the most "powerful website crawler with the world's most insightful reporting system".

    I've used plenty of other website crawlers, but Sitebulb has the most options to integrate with other tools like Moz, Google Analytics, Majestic, etc. Having access to all this data in one place is absolutely priceless.

    If you're not a subscriber already, you should be. Especially if you do a lot of audits and use several different tools to compile data to give your clients actionable items.

  • John-Henry ScherckPrincipal Consultant
    Pros: 

    Clean interface and really good reporting

    Cons: 

    It's a bit slower than some other crawlers

    It's a beautiful product for advanced technical SEO that you can feel confident using. It provides solid recommendations and is very easy to use. I picked it up in a matter of minutes.

  • Joona TuunanenHead of SEO & co-founder at OIKIO
    Pros: 

    Crawlmaps <3, good visualisations, covers most things you need

    Cons: 

    No custom extraction (yet), would be nice to be able to change the colors to match our agencys branding

    Started to use Sitebulb when they launched their public beta. Definitely a good alternative to other similar tools with a bit of extra (=crawlmaps). Interesting to see the evolution of this product.

  • Anthony D. NelsonDigital Strategist & Marketer
    Pros: 

    Beautiful UI. Impressive visualizations and charts make for easy reporting. Great tool for quickly assessing the SEO health of a large site.

    Cons: 

    Currently no custom extraction feature (or I missed it)

    I used Sitebulb for one month during the Beta period. Very nice product at launch that I'm certain will be updated regularly and become even more valuable over time.

  • Ade LewisCompany Director
    Pros: 

    Really, really in-depth data especially around internal link architecture

    Cons: 

    Not that I kind find :-)

    I can't recommend Sitebulb highly enough to anyone involved in SEO. It's also great for development teams to ensure that any changes made don't have an impact on site crawlability.

  • Pros: 

    Beautifully presented actionable data. Clear. Easy to use. Fast. No limits to usage. Low system resource guzzling.

    Cons: 

    One or two very minor reporting issues. Fully expect these to be fixed soon.

    I've worked with Botify, screaming frog, the link-assistant tool, seomator, raven, moz and others. I think all of them? This is very much the audit tool that I've been looking for.

  • Pros: 

    Helpful auto-generated suggestions across a range of site issues, quality crawler, excellent visualisations

    Cons: 

    None

    I've found Sitebulb to be an excellent not only crawler but technical website auditing tool. It's taken a bunch of previously seperate or manual tasks and automated the lot. Not only that it's managed to find issues on sites which I thought were pretty much sorted.

  • Pros: 

    Great tool

    Cons: 

    Can't really think of any negatives

    Fits a really useful gap between data and visualisation in the SEO world. I've been on the beta test and have loved using this product. HIghly recommend it.

  • Mark SmallwoodMarketing and SEO
    Pros: 

    Clean UI, comprehensive feature set for webmasters and SEOs

    Cons: 

    None yet

    Sitebulb is a good competitor to other tools out there like SEMRush, SERPStat, SpyFu, and so on. I wish companies would provide different pricing options--the subscription model is onerous when you are a pro and need to have a slew of specialized tools. Fortunately, Sitebulb handles many tasks that otherwise require two or more packages.

  • Pros: 

    User Interface

    Cons: 

    More detailed analyses

    Sitebulb is easy to use, even non-technical marketers can use it very easly. And also that app's using less memory than other tools which is a huge plus.

    Pros: 

    Very easy interface

    Cons: 

    The juicy bits are a little expensive for small websites

    The crawl map is a game changer!
