From a Domain Overview, you can click on any of the data modules to jump into more specific reports on Semrush and continue your analysis further.

You might also perform domain analysis on a website in order to see if it’s worth approaching its owner for a link from his/her site to yours — this is because external links from high-quality websites to your content can really boost its performance in search.

There are also Metrics which are important when it comes to the Domain Overview.

Semrush Review 2021: Keyword Research

What is Keyword Research?

Keyword research is the process of finding all of the possible search engine queries which may be relevant to your business and your customers or viewers.

Keyword research includes not only finding these keywords but also sorting and prioritizing them into logical, related groups, which can then inform how you might change existing pages on your site or create new content.

Why is Keyword Research more important?

When coming to SEO standpoint the Keyword Research is the soul of a content, It will give a clear picture of which keyword you are ranking the content or if your content is correctly aligned or matched with the correct keyword.

Or else, whatever hardwork you put in making your content which is not matching a correct keyword, which it should, the whole work of yours is a merry chase.

Keyword Research also has some metrics as the Domain Overview, In this we call it ‘Keyword tools’ are:-

  • Keyword Overview
  • Keyword Magic Tool
  • Organic Traffic Insights
  • Keyword Manager

With these keywords we can get a variety of benefits.

  1. Keyword Overview

Keyword Overview tool. Simply enter a keyword. You’ll be able to see the number of searches per month, the websites that rank for it, and the keyword difficulty score. You can also see these rankings for different countries.

Keyword difficulty is expressed by a percentage.

This percentage ranges from 0–100%. Semrush breaks down these percentages into three categories:

  • Below 60%: low difficulty
  • 60%-80%: medium difficulty
  • Over 80%: high difficulty
  1. Keyword Magic tool

The Keyword Magic Tool (KMT) is the most powerful keyword research solution we offer.

It provides access to an extended database with over 17 Billion Keywords and a streamlined interface for organizing research on the go.

  • CPC and volume ( Cost per Click )
  • Keyword difficulty ( as seen )
  • Competition level
  • SERP features ( Search Engine Result Page )

Organic traffic Insights and manager are compiled in itself.

Semrush Review 2021: Rank Tracking

Rank Tracking or you can also refer to it as Position Tracking .

Over time, you’ll want to measure your SEO results.

Semrush offers a simple solution to tracking the website traffic you receive from your keywords.

The Rank Tracking tool provides this assistance.

It’s easy to set this up in Semrush — you go to its position tracker section, enter a domain name and the keyword(s) you’d like to track, and you get a report showing you how your site is currently ranking for those keywords.

The tool comes with tons of features like tagging, sorting, filtering and exporting reports that make it easy for marketers to find exactly what they’re looking for in their website’s SEO or PPC performance.

Semrush claims the rank tracking has many features in Rank tracking I listed a few:-

  • Ability to track any keyword and domain — even those not in main Semrush database
  • Track and compare multiple geographic locations or device types in a single project
  • Featured Snippet report to look for featured snippet opportunities
  • Easy local SEO tracking and local competitor discovery
  • Simple PDF reporting to share results with colleagues and clients

It not only helps to track your website, you can spy on your competitor websites too. You can also enter competitor website data into Semrush’s position tracker tool.

Which allows you to compare (again, over the time) how your site is performing for chosen keywords against those of your competitors.

Semrush Review 2021: Backlink Analysis

Before diving into the section you should know, What the heck is a Backlink?

Also referred to within SEO as Inbound ( Internal ) links or External links, backlinks are links that point from a page on one website to a page on another.

They are the links from third party sources that point to your website, in comparison to internal links that exist between two pages within your website.

Types of Backlinks

There are many types like Sponsored, UGC, Toxic, etc. But, mainly these two types of Backlinks are important, i.e.:-

  • Nofollow Links
  • Dofollow Links

Why Are Backlinks Important?

You see backlinks talked about a lot, and there is no denying that they are an important area to focus your efforts on improving. But why?

  • This will Help you to Rank higher
  • They are the one way Google Finds a New Page
  • They Boost your Trustworthiness
  • They send referral traffic to your page

This is what a Backlink is, Let’s ComeBack to Backlink Analytics.

The Backlink Analytics section in Semrush lets you enter a domain name and view a list of all the backlinks it can find to it.

You should look at two things while coming to Backlinks one is Backlink Analysis the other one is Backlink Audit.

Backlink Analysis

How accurate Semrush’s backlink analysis is, of course, depends on the size and quality of its link database.

At time of writing, Semrush claims to have a Whopping 43 trillion URLs in its link database, which if accurate compares positively with its key competitors — Ahrefs (26 trillion), Majestic SEO (10 trillion) and Moz (41 trillion).

The number of backlinks found by each tool was pretty similar, with Semrush performing better on websites with a smaller number of domains linking to them — it identified more linking domains than competing products Ahrefs or Moz.

Once you have loaded up a domain into the tool, you are ready to start gaining a deeper insight into the site’s link profile.

But on paper, Semrush’s database is larger than its key competitors, and it definitely provides you with a very comprehensive set of results that is definitely comparable to those of other leading SEO tools.

Backlink Audit

In simple terms, a backlink audit is the evaluation of all links pointing to your website.

It means you need to find them, identify the bad and good ones, and develop the right strategy to deal with them.

The core purpose of doing this is to establish the ‘toxicity’ of backlinks pointing to your site and determine its ‘site health’.

This effectively tells Google to ignore these toxic links — and, because Google penalises sites with lots of poor-quality links pointing to them, disavowing bad links can have a beneficial impact on your search rankings.

Combining our new backlink database with integrations from Google and Majestic and our toxic link evaluation , you can improve your backlink portfolio in these 5 easy steps.

Link building in Semrush

As we saw above, link building — the process of getting other sites linking to yours — is absolutely vital to the success of any SEO project, because search engines typically reward sites with more links pointing to them with higher positions in search results.

I already explained it with the Image, But again I’ll try to make you clear what Link Building is and why am I insisting again and again,

When website A links to website B, it’s a strong hint to Google’s algorithm that it deserves to rank higher for relevant keywords, and you might hear these referred to as inbound links, backlinks, external links, or, quite simply, just links.
