How to Set Up an SEMrush Account

SEMrush, in my opinion, is one of the most important tools there is. They are considered the top research service when it comes to online marketing. The information that you can gain through their website puts you at such an advantage. Below is a simple step-by-step guide on how to create an account.

Step 1 – Go to the SEMrush homepage and click the ‘Log In‘ button. (Located in the upper right hand corner of the screen.)

Step 2 – You will be given the option to “Log in” or “Register”, Click ‘Register‘. Enter the email that you would like to be associated with the account and a password of your choice into the spaces provided. Once you have input the information into the required fields, click ‘Create my account‘.

Step 3 – You will then be asked to choose your area of interest. You may be interested in a couple of these areas, but for now just click on the most important one to you or click ‘Skip‘ if you’re not ready to decide. (Either way, you can always change your area of interest in the future.)

Step 4 – Your account has officially been activated, but, you only have limited access to the research SEMrush has to offer. To gain access to all their resources, you must upgrade your account to at least “Pro”. Click the ‘See all plans and prices‘ button below the “Upgrade” button (towards the top right corner of the screen). (The image below depicts the “Dashboard” page, not to be confused with the “SEO Dasboard”. You can always access the regular Dashboard page by clicking the SEMrush logo in the top left corner.)

Step 5 – The next page will display 3 different monthly plans:

  • Pro – $99.95 per month
  • Guru – $199.95 per month
  • Business – $399.95 per month

As the plans increase in price, there are more features that are offered as well as additional users that can gain access to the account. I suggest that you start with “Pro” to learn the program. You may find that you will never feel the need to ever upgrade your plan, but you can always do so in the future. Click ‘Subscribe‘ on the desired plan to advance to the next step.

Note: There are also annual plans if you are confident that you will want the account for at least 1 year.

  • Pro – $999.40 per year (Save $200)
  • Guru – $1999.40 per year (Save $400)
  • Business – $3999.40 per year (Save $800)

Step 6 – Now that you have selected a plan, it’s time to purchase it. To the right you can see the “Purchase Summary”, if everything looks correct, provide the following billing information:

  • Credit Card Number
  • Expiration Date
  • Card Holder (Name on the Card)
  • CVV/CVC (The 3 Digits on the Back of the Credit/Debit Card)
  • First Name
  • Last Name
  • Phone Number
  • Business Name (If Applicable)
  • Address
  • Country
  • City
  • Postal Code

Once you have inserted all the necessary information, click the ‘Terms and Conditions‘ link below. If you agree, check the box that reads ‘I agree to the Terms and Conditions‘, then click ‘Place the Order‘.

Congratulations! You now have a Pro SEMrush account. Go explore the different sections of your SEMrush dashboard. We will go much more in-depth on how to utilize SEMrush in another section of this website.
