The heuristic algorithms are often used to find solutions to real complex world problems. In this paper, the Social Spider Algorithm (SSA) and Social Spider Optimization (SSO) which are heuristic algorithms created upon spider behaviors are considered. Performances of both algorithms are compared with each other from six different items. These are; fitness values of spider population which are obtained in different dimensions, number of candidate solution obtained in each iteration, the best value of candidate solutions obtained in each iteration, the worst value of candidate solutions obtained in each iteration, average fitness value of candidate solutions obtained in each iteration and running time of each iteration. Obtained results of SSA and SSO are applied to the Wilcoxon signed-rank test. Various unimodal, multimodal, and hybrid standard benchmark functions are studied to compare each other with the performance of SSO and SSA. Using these benchmark functions, performances of SSO and SSA are compared with well-known evolutionary and recently developed methods in the literature. Obtained results show that both heuristic algorithms have advantages to another from different aspects. Also, according to other algorithms have good performance.
