This year, my agency wrote 1,975,002 words with Surfer. The writers know exactly which words they should use, and how they should use them. They get the content length and topic suggestions which speeds up the process. Most importantly, they genuinely enjoy working with Content Editor. We would be lost without it.

Surfer is a quick yet extremely accurate way to get data-driven advice for your site. I've seen ranking gains in many different niches by applying its suggestions. Bonus: It takes the data and presents it in such a way that even beginner SEOs would understand so... you can outsource the actions as well.

Surfer’s analysis told me to delete 22,000 words of content which was...weird. So I deleted 85% of my content including 901 blog comments. 2 days after doing precisely what Surfer told me to do, I moved straight into the number 1 position.

With NLP words introduced into three, already optimized articles, we managed to reach the top five in Google search for relevant keywords. Within the first month of using Surfer, we recorded 15% organic traffic growth. Now it's an essential part of our content creation process.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions
How to get started?

To use the Surfer and Semrush integration, make sure you have an account with both Surfer and Semrush. Then, follow the steps from this Knowledge Base article.

How does the Semrush and Surfer integration work?

Semrush is integrated into one of Surfer’s products — Grow Flow.

Grow Flow is an AI-powered tool which gives users an automated, weekly batch of SEO tasks so they can grow their domain and propel their rankings!

Each week, you’ll get a list of backlinks your competitors have recently acquired. You can use these insights to adjust, update or improve your own link-building strategy.

Is the Surfer and Semrush integration free?

Yes, it’s free. However, if you don’t have an active Surfer subscription, you’ll still get ONLY ONE batch of Grow Flow tasks (for one week).

Can I connect my existing Semrush account to Surfer?

Yes!

Can I use the integration if I don’t have an active Semrush subscription?

You can! Semrush offers a freemium plan which is sufficient to make this integration work! Just log in to Surfer, try connecting it with Semrush, and register an account. You can follow the guide here.

How many backlinks of my competitors will you show me weekly?

Depending on how big your competition is, you’ll get a list of up to 20 backlinks per week.

I’m a Semrush customer. I don’t have a Surfer account. Now what?

We strongly encourage you to sign up to Surfer! However, if you just want to try out Surfer, access the freemium version of Surfer here. After you’ve created your account and created a Grow Flow project, you’ll get one batch of Grow Flow tasks for free!

Once you subscribe to one of the available plans, you’ll unlock access to Surfer’s other tools and weekly-based updates in Grow Flow.

Okay, so what can Surfer offer me as a Semrush customer?

You’ll get access to advanced on-page, content-creation, content-optimization and keyword-clustering tools.

That includes Grow Flow, an AI-powered tool which gives you an automated, weekly list of biggest-impact, yet low-effort, tasks to grow and optimize your domains!

What’s the added value of the Surfer and Semrush integration?

From now on, you no longer need to visit Semrush or Ahrefs to discover which backlinks appeared in your competitors’ indexes recently.

You’re going to get the list automatically, every week. Thanks to this integration, you will have immediate visibility into which domains started referring to your competitors.

This allows you to fine-tune your own link-building strategy, and increase your rankings.

Can I get support on the Surfer and Semrush integration?

Sure! Please contact us at [email protected] or start a chat conversation in the bottom, left-hand corner of your Surfer account.
