The Different Features of Moz Pro

  • – The monthly volume of your chosen keyword
  • – The difficult to achieve a high ranking
  • – Organic CTR (click-through-rate)
  • – Keyword Priority Score
  • – Possible keywords to use
  • – SERP analysis

It’s easy to create keywords lists that you can categorize, prioritize and implement to improve your keyword strategy. Use Moz’s suggestions to out rank the competition and ensure your audience can find your content.

Moz Pro Fresh Web Explorer

It’s important to keep a close eye on mentions of your brand, competitors and keywords.

With this feature, you can expect to …

  • – Have the latest links to mentions of your content
  • – Track your content lifecycle
  • – Custom monitor terms over time
  • – Discover your recent mentions where you aren’t linked to; so, you can reach out to have a link in place
  • – Watch your competitor’s content by building a link target list
  • – Track the engagement on your shared content
  • – Build upon your content strategy by monitoring your mentions, shares and links

Fresh Web is the perfect way to explore new opportunities and develop your content; Moz will provide you support so you can build an even better content strategy to boost your brand awareness.

Moz Pro Site Crawl

Every site can come across a few technical issues from time-to-time, it’s a simple mistake to forget to include a meta description, or perhaps your title length is too long.

Moz will routinely crawl your site and will find issues like;

  • – Redirect issues
  • – 4xx errors
  • – Missing meta descriptions
  • – Titles too long
  • – Duplicate titles and content

Without a tool like Moz Pro, it’d be challenging to see what isn’t running smoothly on your site; it will quickly inform you of your site’s SEO performance and offer possible ways to fix any issues.

It couldn’t be any easier; progress will be tracked in a simple chart, so you can monitor your SEO success.

Moz Pro Link Explorer

This is what you can expect to see;

  • – Discovered and lost links
  • – Domain authority over time
  • – Compare your link profile compared to competitors
  • – Spam scores that shows the percentage of other sites with content like yours
  • – Judge the quality of inbound links to your website

Moz will then offer you recommendations to achieve a higher score.

Moz Pro Custom Report

Here’s what you could do with your Custom Reports;

  • – Compare results over a period to analyse progress

Is Moz Pro Worth the Money?

Short answer, yes. The lowest price plan is $99/per month which is a small price to place considering all the features Moz has to offer.

There’s a 30-day free trial you could use; familiarise yourselves with the features and by the end of the 30 days you should be able to make an informed judgement.

Moz ProWrapping it Up

SEO campaigns require continuous analysis; they aren’t a one-stop-job. They require a lot of background information, testing solutions, analysing, tweaking methods and repeating continuously. The right tools (and Moz has them all) will really help to boost your reach and get visitors to your website.

In a nutshell, Moz can handle everything SEO related. Instead of having a huge collection of accounts and software to help you with your SEO campaigns, it just makes sense to have one account, with one subscription and all your data is one place.
