01


ROUND

User Interface & User Experience (UI/UX)

Research tools handle more complex data sets, and based on that. They provide valuable well-formatted data to its user.

Considering content marketers, social media marketers, bloggers, small business owners, or an agency,they have to do a lot of work to run their business.

In this case, the tools are extra support for the business. They are supposed to be user-friendly and combine ease of use and its value to the company.

For ease of understanding, I will review both the tools user interface in two parts: the keyword Input page and the result page.

Answer The Public User Interface and Experience (UI/UX).

Keyword input page:

Heading over to the Answer The Public [dot] com, I see the search bar which states, "Discover what people are asking about."

The search bar is the tool, where you can input the keyword for your search query with two filters: location and language.

All the essential information regarding the tool is present in the navigation menu itself.

And if you are a curious person like me, scroll down, and you will find some more information about the tool and how it is helpful, what problem it solves, etc.

Search Result Page:

Now we will test the tools User Interface and User experience with our search query. In this case, I am going with WordPress hosting, location USA, language English.

Answer The Public on the Search Result page shows the result in five separate categories with an option to download the report as a .csv file.

The five categories contain different queries, questions, prepositions, comparisons, alphabetical, and related queries.

Each category is a segment where we can see the results in two different formats visualisation and data.

In the visualization option, the data is shown in tree form visual structure.

And in the data option, it is shown as a simple written format.

You can export individual categories of data as an image.

The presentation is nice and clean and easy to understand.

Very cleverly designed tree structure shows you the keywords with high priority as a darker shade of green colour.

Topic Mojo User Interface & Experience (UI/UX).

Keyword input page:

On the Topic Mojo's website, we have to log in to use the free tier.

After signing in, we have three tools on the dashboard.

  • Topic Model
  • Question Finder
  • Search Listening (launching soon)

Topic Mojo has an option to save your research work in a separate folder named workspace. You can locate the workspace in the navbar.

The user interface is simple and easy to understand.

You have to enter your search query in the search box and apply location, language as the filter.

Just below the search tool, you will find your previous searches as recent reports.

Search Result Page:

To understand the user interface, we will use both tools one by one.

Topic Model:

It says, "generate a topic model around any product or brand name."

You can enter your search query in the input area and choose the location with your preferred language as a filter.

The result page shows two basic reports about the keyword's search trend and search volume.

Just below these reports, you can see a section with multiple options: overview, videos, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Amazon, and news.

These are the different types of platforms, and you can view what is happening on Twitter, Instagram, in the news, in forums, on Amazon, and in video content on the same dashboard.

Apart from these options, there are three more options, namely tree, grouping, and queries.

All the six categories, phrases, comparison, shopping, research, question, and local, are presented in these three formats.

The tree shows a visual representation of the data in an image form.

Grouping is a written representation of the data, and you can export each category as a .csv file.

In queries, the data is distributed in tabular form with some additional SEO metrics.

Here, the cache is you have to be a subscriber of Topic Mojo's SEO addon plan to see the data behind the padlock.

For Topic Mojo users, the keyword, sentiment of the keyword, type of the keyword, and keyword source are available.

At last, you will find Interest by subregion and related topics in an appealing visual format.

Questions Finder:

It says, "Find the most asked & relevant questions around your topic from all over the web."

In the input field, type your search query with location and language as a filter.

The result page features the keyword trend report followed by a search volume report.

Below these reports, you will find data sources like Google, Quora, and Reddit.

The questions about your keyword are present in a tabular form.

Pricing

Money saved is money earned, right?

Both of the tools offer a free plan so that you can test the service before purchasing the pro plan.

Let's find the most budget-friendly tool for your needs.

Answer The Public Pricing:

Answer The Public offers two different plans.

99$ per month or 79$ per month (Best Value) if you buy an annual subscription.This plan gives you access to the pro-only features like:

  • Hide branches & suggestions
  • High resolution images
  • Priority customer support
  • Unlimited searches
  • Unlimited users
  • Compare data over time
  • 5 Search Listening Alerts

Another plan is the Expert plan which will cost you 199$ per month, including the Above features with 20 search listening alerts.

Both the plan gives you access to their education package where you will get ebooks and video courses.

Topic Mojo Pricing:

Topic Mojo offers a single plan for 69$ per month.

This plan gives you access to the following features.

  • Topic Model - Unlimited queries/month
  • Questions Finder - Unlimited queries/month
  • Workspaces - Unlimited workspaces
  • Saved Lists - Unlimited lists
  • Team Members - 5 users

If you want to use additional features like SEO metrics of the keywords.

Then you have to pay an extra 9$ per month.

Conclusion Pricing

Topic Mojo is the winner for the best value for money tool.

Here is why, even if you purchase the best plan with all the additional features of the Topic Mojo, you have to pay 78$ a month.

If you do not want the SEO add on, then it is just 69$ per month.

Also, Answer The Public does not offer a free trial for their pro-only features, so there is no way you can find it if these features are useful for you or not.

In Topic Mojo, you can use all the features up to 10 queries a month. They do not offer workspace, additional users, and a save list for free users, which does make sense.

Just for ten queries, you wouldn't need these features anyway, and these features are pretty straightforward, not something that affects the tool's core value.

Pricing score

Answer The Public - 7/10

Topic Mojo - 9/10 (Winner)
