    "Five stars for sure!"

    July 25, 2014   |   By Marine_Strock

    Version: SEO SpyGlass 5.5.4

    Pros

    The pros are numerous, the major ones being the features: competition research, link analysis, link penalty feature. Easy to use, nice interface, stable.

    Cons

    A suggestion for future version: inbuilt proxies would help a lot

    Summary

    SEO SpyGlass is nice and simple, it does the job. Great to use for multiple projects. You can use it both to spy on your competition and keep track of your own links. There's also this nice and new link penalty feature: the software checks all your links to analyze whether they're harmful.

    This is an excellent applications, the others don't compare to it. It's easy to use and I use it daily. Consistently stable with a variety of options yet relatively easy to use.

    Well worth the price in my opinion. One of my all-time favorite programs.

    Summary

    SEO Spyglass is my favorite tool in SEO PowerSuite toolset. It pulls data on the backlinks you and your competition have. The data provided is very in-depth, especially if you have an older or larger site. Penalty link column is absolutely invaluable.

    + much more

    "don't buy this junky product SEO Spyglass -- scam!"

    May 02, 2013   |   By SpyGlassTerrible

    Version: SEO SpyGlass 5.5.4

    Pros

    This product has no pros, no redeeming qualities. It's a scam. As scamsters I'm sure the company will go bankrupt soon as their business model is silly.

    Cons

    This is marginally good at best analysis software that DOES NOT build links and the SCAM part is that even though you pay a high purchase price the software STOPS WORKING if you don't pay a HEFTY MONTHLY SUBSCRIPTION supposedly because the "search engines" have updated their algorithms, which we all know happens daily so what does that have to do with their CRAPPY SOFTWARE? who knows. DON'T BUY IT IT'S A SCAM -- SCAMMERS -- RUN AWAY NOW AND TAKE YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY WITH YOU -- SEO SPYGLASS SUCKS -- sucks I say! **** poor, weak! Run!

    Summary

    DON'T BUY IT IT'S A SCAM -- SCAMMERS -- RUN AWAY NOW AND TAKE YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY WITH YOU -- SEO SPYGLASS SUCKS -- sucks I say! **** poor, weak! Run!

    "rip off beware of having to fill out a million captchas"

    January 03, 2013   |   By sas2013

    Version: SEO SpyGlass 5.5.4

    Pros

    hmmmmmmmm what can I say

    Cons

    This program is a rip off. I paid for it and I just had to fill out about 50 Captchas to get through one website analysis. But what a surprise they sell you an anticaptcha program to deal with this problem - but you can't make it work while the program is running so if you have invested a lot of time (hours) into a large site analysis you either are forced to continue doing the Captchas or abort and start again. Why did I pay money for this? It also only pays for doing about 1000 captchas - so about 20 websites and then you get to pay again YAY

    "I use it to replicate strategies that work"

    December 27, 2012   |   By katie043

    Version: SEO SpyGlass 5.5.4

    Pros

    finds lots of links
    provides data about each one
    lets you see what links work and what don't

    Cons

    no, to my knowledge

    Summary

    I'm not sure about SEO agencies or such, but when it comes to owners of small sites like myself, it's the only SEO tool you need. I'm not that keen on checking my rankings as I don't have that many keywords and I don't have to report to anybody on them. But backlinks... that's what I'm really looking into attentively. I use SEO SpyGlass to research both links to my site and competition backlinks. I like monitoring my own link progress with SpyGlass more than with Google Webmaster Tools because there are way more factors reported on, and SpyGlass keeps them better organized. I also use it to check my competitors' backlinks. I just see what me niche fellows are doing and replicate as much as I can.

    "Read the Fine Print"

    December 20, 2012   |   By ozneilau

    Version: SEO SpyGlass 5.5.4

    Pros

    The program might work OK. I don't know because I never got it to work.

    Cons

    I purchased this program as part of SEO PowerSuite over a year ago. Unfortunately, I couldn't get the program to run and by the time I figured it out (Link Assistant closed my support request unanswered), the money back guarantee had expired. As only six months algorithm updates were included in the purchase price, the program no longer runs. Updates are expensive and I won't be wasting any more money trying to get this to work with no help from the software developer.

    Summary

    Don't waste your money.
