SEM Marketing with SEM Rush

I recently came across a sweet tool called SEM Rush, while I was surfing for PPC marketing and keyword related tools. I do a lot of PPC marketing campaigns and I was looking for some utilities that could help me discover which keywords my competitors were using for their PPC campaigns and their keyword bids .

And no this is not illegitimate business, there are legit tools that will help you figure the keywords your competitors are using, their PPC ads and the cost per click that they pay for each keyword.

Sounds cool eh, all you need to do is replicated your ad campaigns based on the keywords and bids your competitor bids on. SEM Rush allows you to type your competitor’s url and related keywords and it ll find the keywords they are purchasing on Adwords.

SEM Rush has a keyword crawler and a large database of popular keywords (30 million), when you query your keyword or a domain search it crawls the keyword list for all the related keywords purchase and gives you detailed information on
– Organic keywords
– Competitors in Organic search
– Potential ad / traffic buyers
– Google Adwords ( Keywords )
– Competitors in Adwords
– Potential ad/ traffic sellers

I’ve taken a screen shot below using two competitors Expedia.com and Orbitz.com, you can check out the organic and PPC results that SEM Rush shows for search engine traffic price and adwords traffic price.

SEM Rush

If you are a PPC marketer, this is a must tool for your campaigns, its a smart investment that saves you time and money for your bids.

The service claims to update its data once a month, the price starts at $19.95 pm for Light (organic keywords) and Pro ( Organic + Adwords) for $49.95 . I’ve taken up the Pro version as it give me benefits of organic search as well as paid searches ( Adwords). I would advise you to test the tool and buy the relevant license based on your need. You can also test SEM Rush with their FREE limited one month trial and later on upgrade to the license version.

  • dave@home improvements December 21, 2009, 7:55 pm

    I have SEM Rush installed on my Seo for Firefox tool bar and I get a great amount of information from just the free version. The thing is I have been hesitant to get the paid version mainly just because they charge you monthly for it…I wish they would just sell it as a software for 100 bucks or something and get updates for life…

    ..I have a question though is the paid version worth it and do you think that you are making more money from it?

    Very often, people who professionally optimize websites for search engines come to a point where they focus exclusively on the big picture of site rankings and the associated link building.

    Good post and I enjoy your blog. SEMRush is a useful tool and I use the paid version. I find it great for analyzing competitors traffic by typing the URL into the search box you can see where your competitor is getting a load of their traffic.

    Thanks and keep up the great work.
