Why prefer SEO Powersuite?
This would be self explanatory once I go forward to explain all its features which demonstrates its potential. Apart from that, its the pricing of the tool which is a great factor.
If you are using the cloud based tools now, they cost a minimum of $50+ per month and only allow you to work on a limited number of websites or projects on a fixed plan. On the other hand, SEO Powersuite Professional costs around $250 for lifetime and you get 4 softwares which let you perform several activities! Rather than spending a lot on these monthly, why not opt for a one stop solution?
When I heard about the pricing structure for the first time from a colleague, I proceeded to make a purchase.
Let’s discuss about what I have uncovered using these tools in detail.
Check out the below video to take a sneak peek into the software:
SEO revolves around ranking your website for specific keywords. This tool would definitely be used daily. It helps you to monitor the rankings of your websites and competitor websites. You can check up to 1000 positions for all the keywords you want to monitor on Google, yahoo and Bing. This lets you find the best profitable keywords for your SEO campaign. I am sure any cloud based rank tracker limits you to the number of keywords. On the other hand, Rank Tracker supports 593 search engines over the world to check your rankings.
Let’s do a process walk through on how to track ranks with this tool:
1.Creating a new project is as easy as any other tool. Browse to File -> New Project or press Ctrl+N. You will be prompted with a new window. Enter your website link/URL whose rank you want to check as shown below and proceed to check.
2. Connect your Google Analytics and Google Adwords accounts in this module if required. You can skip this step though.
3. Enter your keywords for which you want to monitor the rank in the next step and hit on “Next”.
4. Choose your Search Engines: In this step, you can choose the search engines on which you want to see your website ranking for the keywords. By default, you may see, Bing, Yahoo and Google chosen for USA. You can click on “Add more search engines” to choose the intended one and click on “Next”.
5. Now, the tracker should look up for rankings on the provided keywords and URL.
6. Hold your breath. As soon as the analysis is over, click on finish to see the detailed report.
Once you are on this module, you can see various functionalities on the top module like “Add more keywords, Check rankings again, Update Visits (works when connected to Analytics).
Other functions like Show competitors and Check with previous results can be put to great use to judge the difficulty of the keywords and to compare the progress.
On the bottom panel, there are graphs and statistics which show:
I. Progress Graph

2. Keyword Map:
Check all your keywords here and update keyword difficulty to analyse them. Assign keywords to specific landing pages to check rankings for inner pages rather than the home page. Sort keyword difficulty and find the best keywords to target for your campaign.
3. Keyword Research:
This is the best module of the tool. I find it great to find profitable keywords for my campaigns. You have to connect your adwords, bing, yahoo accounts etc to get the list of keywords.
Apart from that, the tool also supports or scrapes keywords from below:
- Google Autocomplete
- Google Related Searches
- Google Trends
- Google Search Console
- SEMRush (Another of my favorites for keyword research)
That’s great considering you have to manually find keywords from these sources and do a duplicate removal when doing keyword research. Once you import all the keywords, remove duplicates and check competition, you find some great keywords to proceed. Filter the keywords depending on number of searches, competition etc from the top right filtering panel. Export them to CSV clicking on the top right arrow.
4. Domain Strength:
Want to have an analysis of your domain overall performance? Well, this module brings it to you.

Last but not the least, we are down to discuss the last piece of the package, Link Assistant.
Whether its finding new sources of backlinks for your website or monitoring existing backlinks for SEO relevance, Link Assistant is the tool that comes to rescue. Building quality backlinks has been one of the primary concerns especially after the Google algorithm updates. Staying off Google’s radar is something every webmaster watches out for. Analyze the quality of the backlinks you build, keep a database of all the links and formulate further outreach strategies with Link Assistant.
I will discuss about the software in detail below:
1.Create a new project and specify your site link to discover new link building opportunities.
2. Once the analysis is completed, browse to “Look for prospects” in the top panel and click on the link opportunity you are looking among Guest Posting, Commenting, Reviews, Giveaways, Forums etc. You can also check for “Competitor backlinks” which shows you competitor backlinks which you can try to replicate. I would also suggest you to use the “Custom Search” option and do a scrape using your guest posting footprints.
3. Enter the keywords for which you want to look for opportunities. Now, give the tool some privacy to carry out its activities. 😛
Now, you can see that you have a list of prospects, their contact info and other relevant details. Check them out and pick up the most relevant ones for your outreach campaign.
Guest Outreach with Link Assistant:
As you have the list of prospects and contact info, you need to mail them to approach about guest posting.
On the left panel, there is an Email option. Click on it and subsequently on “Settings” to configure the email from which you want to send out emails. After you fill the fields, make sure to test connection to see if everything is working as intended.
Once the details have been specified, head over to the Prospects module and select any prospect. Click on “Email option” and draft a nice Subject + Content which doesn’t look spammy to be rejected by the prospect to reject your email blatantly. You can edit your templates at Preferences -> Email Preferences -> Email Templates -> Choose any among the list -> Edit.
Though mail templates are pre loaded by the tool, I would suggest to edit to your preferences. Once you are done editing, Click on “Send”.
If you want to send out bulk mails, make sure to use a good SMTP mail server and enable delays in the preferences tab.
Did you just save a hell lot of manual work? Definitely, yes.
I would again remind you to use Proxies while working on the SEO PowerSuite Tools.
That’s all about the tool. If you purchase individual SEO Powersuite Professional tools, it would cost you around $125 each mounting to $600 total. If you are purchasing all tools at once, it would be a lot cheaper and you save more than $300!!
