Sitebulb: The Best SEO Crawler & Auditor You Never Knew About

Full disclosure, after beta testing with Patrick and the Sitebulb crew for a while, and opting to use Sitebulb as our tool of choice for auditing websites and our technical optimization software, we decided to join their affiliate program (you’ll notice my handsome face on their homepage as well). So if you want to support the SEO Brothers while also supporting Sitebulb, feel free to use this link if you’ve decided to give it a shot and I’m happy to help answer any questions you might have about it.

Auditing websites is something we take very seriously here at SEO Brothers. It needs to happen in order to put together the best possible plan of attack for any client. Because of this, it’s something that is done not only at the beginning of a new project, but also prior to putting together a proposal as it may significantly impact the scope of work that needs to be done to get the client where they want to get.

So bottom line is every project starts with an audit, and every audit starts with a site crawl.

If you haven’t heard, technical SEO is blowing up right now. With the recent confirmation of Google’s crawl budget, followed by a noticeable focus on technical SEO at SMX Advanced this year and it’s no surprise that more and more SEO firms, and in-house SEOs are sorting out and finding their preferred site crawler and audit process.

Now lets be honest. If you’ve spent any amount of time working in the SEO space, when you hear “Website Crawler” you’ll think, Screaming Frog.

It’s by far the most popular SEO spider and crawler tool out there. It does it’s job and does it well.

But look out, Screaming Frog, Sitebulb is going to gobble up your marketshare.

I mean that in the nicest way possible, because I truly respect and admire the guys over at Screaming Frog, but while their tool is popular, functional and versatile it lacks a few key elements that Sitebulb identified and improved upon.

Sitebulb perfectly bridges the gap between desktop crawlers and enterprise crawl solutions.

It’s everything you love about a desktop crawler (no limits, lots of customizations, etc.) and everything you love about an enterprise crawler like OnCrawl or Deepcrawl (data visualization, cross-metric analysis, better project management, etc.)

Needless to say, I’m a huge fan of Sitebulb. So to recap, here are the highlights of Sitebulb that I find the best:

  • Crawl data visualization
  • Cross-metric analysis
  • Project and Audit organization
  • No-limit usage due to leveraging desktop resources
  • Excellent crawl customizations
  • Scheduled / queued crawling
  • Almost daily iterations and releases so far
  • Patrick’s swearing
  • Amazing price point at only $35 USD per month.

You can’t find a tool that does all that Sitebulb does at the price that it is.

      Hey Gary, thanks for saying hi. I promise you won’t be disappointed in them – amazing software and a great team. Feel free to use an affiliate link in post if you want, I won’t stop you 🙂

    Thanks for the (short) review 🙂
    I just saw them mentioned for the first time and wanted to check them out. I hoped for a short comparison with Screaming Frog. Are you planning on doing a comparison? I use Screaming Frog (free) and bought Website Auditor. Still use Screaming Frog more. Maybe because I got used to using it….you know… Anyhow, thanks for the review, and don’t let anybody stop you for doing a comparison 😉

    I’ve been following the Sitebulb project since last year’s beta. Pretty solid product, looking forward to seeing how it evolves.

    I’m currently using Website Auditor by SEO PowerSuite for most of my Audit work. I’d be down to make a switch at some point in the future.

    Have you already made the switch to Sitebulb at SEO Brothers? How has your experience been? Any features in specific you find missing?

    We have been using Sitebulb for the past 18 months and love the reports and clear data.
