    If you want to build an organic traffic growth machine, you can’t wait for the Google Search Console, Google Analytics or HubSpot data to roll in.

    We first learned about the popularity of SEMrush when we began our Agency Partner Program back in January. While agencies rely on Google and HubSpot to show middle of the funnel results, it’s hard to communicate the value of your SEO work without presenting competitor and ranking data from specialized SEO tools like SEMRush.

    Agencies who signed up for our program requested we create an integration for SEMrush because it tracks “the most robust set of SEO data.” They wanted to be able to communicate all of their hard work to their clients without pasting screenshots into Powerpoint. SEMRush was the key for the largest majority of them.

    Fast forward to August 2017: Marketers now use our SEMrush integration alongside Google Analytics, Search Console and HubSpot to better communicate the impact of their search and content marketing efforts.

    So, we are excited to announce our partnership with SEMrush to make it even easier to stay on top of your SEO metrics in real-time.

    Not only have we built an integration, but we’ll be working together with the SEO masters at SEMRush to improve it over time. Read below to see what we’ve built so far.

    We pull data from SEMrush’s Position Tracking and Site Audit tools, specifically.

    • The Position Tracking tool helps you track national, regional and local search engine positions for any keyword across multiple devices. You can also use it on a competitor’s site to illustrate your competitiveness on top search terms.
    • The Site Audit tool allows helps you to find and fix on-site issues and boost SEO optimization. It allows you to find errors, warnings, broken links and other flaws that may negatively affect your organic search rankings.

    How The Integration Works

    You need a Business subscription to SEMrush as well as pre-purchased API units in order to use the integration.

    You can connect multiple SEMrush Projects to Databox, so if you manage multiple domains or clients, you can separate the statistics for each. All you need is your account’s API key.

    If you need to see which data will be pulled in, check out the Position Tracking and Site Audit tools within SEMrush itself.
