Best free SEO reporting dashboard

We all love a good freebie sometimes, don’t we? It was really hard to choose just one favorite free SEO reporting dashboard, because there are some real diamonds amongst the rough (sometimes you do just get what you pay for). But in the end, it all came back to SEMrush.

SEMrush Domain Overview

Dashboard from SEMrush Domain Overview reporting template.

The SEMrush Domain Overview dashboard is designed to display top level domain data to show your clients, from either their website or their competitors’. When you use this template you’ll be able to pull in ranking metrics from SEMRush including:

  • Traffic 
  • Keywords 
  • Traffic cost

You can also split traffic cost across paid and organic channels. The report shows your referring domains, authority score, and backlinks over time. Two tables show your top paid and organic keywords.

We like this dashboard because it’s easy to use and it consolidates unique (and fundamental) data from SEMRush into a single dashboard.

It’s an ideal dashboard for anyone, whether an agency or consultant, who uses SEMRush regularly. Are you looking for a way to share data with clients or other third parties? Or internally, but without sharing your login details.

It’s also really useful for monitoring competitors and you can duplicate it in the one report to display data for multiple websites.

Best SEO reporting dashboards (and why they’re worth paying for)

Data Studio is mostly pretty intuitive. And if you’re in the business of SEO, you can probably build your own dashboards. 

But that’s fiddly, laborious and it just takes time. 

A lot of time.

So much goes into building a good dashboard. You’ll need to: gather the data, connect your data source, ask the right questions, build graphs and tables to answer those questions, and finally make it all come together in a visually appealing way that stands out from the competition. That can take hours or even days, sometimes. 

What are you losing in that time?

That’s why we offer high quality and affordable templates that will give you back your time (and billable hours).

Now that’s worth paying for.

You’ll be able to quickly visualize the right data just by connecting your sources, or use them as your starting point and customize as you go. 

Now—it felt a bit like choosing a favorite child—but we’ve rounded up 3 of our best SEO reporting dashboards.
