IMPORTANT: The Free option is no longer available to start after 16.12.2022. Please wait for new, improved solutions in 2023!
In this article, you will find answers to questions such as:
What is a free plan, and what does it include?
The free plan is any Surfer account that does not own an active paid subscription. As a free plan user, you will gain access to our Grow Flow tool.
On the free plan, there are two types of Grow Flow projects available, depending on the size of your domain:
You can add unlimited number of low-impression projects and up to one high-impression trial project.
Based on your Google Search Console data we check how many daily impressions you domain had within the last few days and this way we are determining the project type.
Any domain above the threshold of 100 impressions per day is considered a high-impression one.
Free plan does not include direct access to Content Editor, Audit and other Surfer tools. You will only be able to create Editors through Grow Flow.
How does a high-impression trial work?
In the trial projects, the first two batches of tasks will pop up one week after another.
After 2 weeks, the trial domain will receive tasks once per month and there will be one "Write And Publish Article" task in each task batch.
If you'd prefer getting tasks on a weekly basis - you can do so by upgrading for any of our paid plans.
What kind of tasks will I receive as a free plan user?
For your low-impression projects, you will receive only the "Write and publish an article" tasks and only one task at a time. To receive another task, you will need to complete the previous one.
High-impression trial projects include the same types of tasks as on the paid plan. There are multiple task types that aim to improve different features of your SEO performance.
How many domains can I add to my account?
You can connect unlimited number of low-impression projects.
The maximum number of high-impression websites you can connect to Grow Flow is one. If you want to add more - you can purchase any of our paid plans to extend your limits. In order to do that, simply select more domains on your Grow Flow page and you'll be redirected to a checkout, where it will automatically suggest purchasing our cheapest plan - Basic monthly.
How can I remove/change one of my Grow Flow projects?
You can reach out to our Support Team via chat or mail, and we can remove ongoing projects for you.
Please note however your Grow Flow page will always be populated with properties that are attached to linked Search Consoles.
Why I'm not able to add my website under the free plan?
If the specific domain was previously added to Surfer in the past - within any account, including your own - you cannot add it under Free plan anymore.
This is a security feature to prevent users from abusing Free plan's offering and you may need to reach out to Support if you are seeing this error.
How many Search Console accounts can I link on my free plan?
There is no said limit - please feel free to add as many as you need.
What if my low-impression project reaches 100 impressions a day?
To continue working on such a project, you will need to convert it to a high-impression one by using your one available slot or purchase a paid Surfer plan.
