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:

Easy Interface

Cons:

Nada

Thank you, and thanks for signing up!

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.

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

Director, URL Profiler
Thanks Joona :) Custom extraction is on the roadmap (we already do it in URL Profiler) but we'd like to do a more comprehensive job of helping users identify the right selectors. Changing colours is a new one! Do you mean the overall interface, or the graphs etc...?

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:

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.....

Thanks Dan. Client reports and page segments are just the beginning. Our new feature list will keep us busy until 2020!

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:

Crawl Map Visualisations, Easy to understand reports

Cons:

White label Reporting for Agencies

Share
Director, URL Profiler
Thanks Chris! We've got something in the works already for the white label reporting, watch this space. P.S. You wrote 'userprofiler'...
Cheers Chris - Looks like reports are going to get prioritised!

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.

Pros:

Simple to use. Easy to understand

Cons:

Segmentation ;)

Director, URL Profiler
Segments are on their way!

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.

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)

Director, URL Profiler
Thanks Anthony! Gareth has been busy TODAY building a new version of our content extractor. Seems a popular request :)

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:

Clean UI, comprehensive feature set for webmasters and SEOs

Cons:

None yet

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.

Pros:

Clean interface and really good reporting

Cons:

It's a bit slower than some other crawlers

Share

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:

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.

Director, URL Profiler
Thanks Dave, great to hear. If we didn't have the occasional bug, Gareth would have nothing to do... (seriously don't worry, we're on them).

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.

Pros:

Great tool

Cons:

Can't really think of any negatives

Director, URL Profiler
No negatives? Gareth, we'd better take a holiday!

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:

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)

Director, URL Profiler
Thanks Tom (and thanks for all beta feedback). I have at various stages of my career rolled with 2 or 3 crawlers that I use regularly, so I personally feel there is room for overlapping products - especially if they have different strengths.

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:

User Interface

Cons:

More detailed analyses

The crawl map is a game changer!

Pros:

Very easy interface

Cons:

The juicy bits are a little expensive for small websites

Company Director

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:

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

Cons:

Not that I kind find :-)

I built a Death Star with my mind.

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.

Pros:

Amazing UI. Fantastic visuals and reporting.

Cons:

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