I have been on trials with Ahrefs, SEMrush, and more than one year with SERanking.
Ahrefs and SEMrush seem great, but they are too complicated for beginners and so I was overwhelm. Because I should be an SEO agency to be able to use it to the full potential.
SERanking was great at keyword tracking, and even a cheap SEO tool. But the keyword finding tool was not good, and it is something I have to do in a regular basis.
And when I started to use Mangools, I like it at once. Because it includes everything I need. The metrics make sense, the dashboard looks clean and not just stuffed with all kinds of statistics. Also, another plus point, Mangools elements are big with clear intentions, colorful, fresh and intuitive app-like graphics.
For my use case, I do affiliate and have a number of websites in development. So I usually have to look for keywords (mostly long tail keywords), monitor backlinks, domains authority and competitor analysis. Mangools have all of them and I can access them quick and in a productive way.
Currently, Mangools offer 5 tools.
KWFinder – Finding keyword with trends
This is by far the best keyword finder I have ever used so far.
The most helpful features of this tool:
- Keyword trending: look at the details in the right column, you can see the specific keyword trend each month
- A clear number of searches statistics
- Information of the competitors who are ranked for the same keywords and related information such as their domain authority, number of backlinks, estimation of visits per month for the keyword
- For advertising: Difficulties of PPC and CPC
- CSV exporter
This amazing keyword finder dashboard I have seen with UberSuggest, but Mangools goes further with their trending table.
Try now (this will lead you to the Mangools websitte):
Note: Sometimes I notice that the ranking difficulties change when clicked, so the competition is rather hard, everyone is targeting the keywords that everyone knows. Wish you luck in your niche!
SiteProfiler – Get an insight over a domain
This tool provides a very simple UI with sections for:
- Overview of the domain: DA, PA, Citation Flow, Trustflow, Alexa Rank, Referring IPs, Facebook shares
- A backlink profile with the number of backlinks new & lost, status (Dofollow/Nofollow ratio), referring domains, IPs, subnets, with a link to LinkMiner so that you can further investigate your links. In my use case, it is rather close to the number of backlinks I saw from Google Search Console
- Top referring domains & anchor text
- Top content that were shared
- Competitors list: this is not very much helpful and only work in some cases. Probably the system is confuse with my niche 😆
In general, it is enough to give me an understandable report about my own domains, but if I do analyzer for other websites, I would like to have other information like domain age or so.
LinkMiner – Backlinks monitor
Another great tool by the Mangool team. The most powerful feature that I found from this:
- The Link Strength (LS) metrics. They define the Link Strength here. But, sometimes I feel that it focus too much on the domain authority of the website, rather than the niche suitability of the backlink context.
- The backlink placement overview. Do you see the awesome screen simulator at the right part of the page? That’s it! It shows you at once where your link is placed. However, sometimes it misses the correct anchor and only can find that the backlink was placed to that webpage.
- CSV exporter
SERPWatcher – Keyword tracker
Simple, clean and intuitive UI. For features, in my opinion it does enough and not very much impressive over other SEO tool:
- The keyword phrase with changes, best position, searches per month
- A chart of performance over time
- Estimated visits per month with your position
- Keyword position distribution. This only cares about the keywords you imported, not your whole query lists from Google Search Console
SERPChecker – Competitor analyzer
I only use this tool one or two time, as I don’t need it much. Anyway, here is the screenshot you are waiting for.
The first disadvantage of using Mangools is that it does not have a SEO audit tool. Something like an analyzer of your on-page optimization.
Secondly, some metrics look like in development.
For example, in SiteProfiler, almost all of the time the Facebook shares number in the first section of the tool is N/A. And sometimes, it does not provide enough helpful information about a domain name that I am after / intend. Would be nice if it also says the domain age.
Another example, the LinkMiner tool sometimes misses the location where the anchor text was placed.
So, this probably not your tool if you need to do a lot of website purchases.
Mangools cannot do complex tasks like giving you the idea and mind map of your content (which SEMrush offers) or the metrics of clicks per keyword (like Ahrefs), but it is amazing at what it has.
In my opinion, the keyword finder and LinkMiner (backlinks monitor) are the top best tools.
Depending on your use cases, Mangools may be your tool or not. Anyway, I hope that this review is helpful for you if you are wondering what Mangools offers and what you can get.
If you decide to use Mangools and visit their website from my website by clicking the links (which does not cost you anything), I would get a commission. But that’s not the only reason why I wrote this article. I recommend it because I am still using it on a regular basis and still find it helpful. If you want to give it a try, click the button below.
