Agency Analytics

Agency Analytics is one of the best website rank tracking tools that I have used so far. I feel like it shows a great amount of insight into the fluctuation of ranking over time. This tool is extremely helpful for B2B marketing agencies where you need to be able to show progress to your clients. Also, the ability to see the results in a live SERPs page gets rid of the trouble of showing a client the live result when you're not next to each other.

KUKU.io

If you would like a reliable scheduling tool, KUKU.io is not the one to use. If you like to share lots of industry news, secondary content, or content from your website/blog, be aware that KUKU.io will corrupt the preview headline. You would be far better off using another scheduling tool. I have now changed to a free tool and it has all the same capabilities without this corruption issue. I also used paid ones which are equally good.

Pros

  • I love the keyword "pool" system that Agency Analytics uses. We purchase a certain number of keywords (6,000) and then we can spread those across our accounts as we see fit. If we need more keywords for another company, we can remove them from an existing one without losing them. That also means that we can change keywords, add keywords, and remove keywords instantly from reports without waiting 30 days for them to re-run.
  • The customizability of the dashboard is new and awesome. We are able to create dashboard templates to use for our clients that shows exactly what we want it to. It also allows us to add text and links to explain certain aspects that might not be readily understandable to people outside the industry.
  • I also really appreciate the ability to send clients their own logins to the site. We add clients in as users to view their own reports at any time.
  • Agency Analytics runs results all day long and allows you to hover over the result to view more information as well as click to view the result in the SERPs.

  • I wouldn't say ther are any particularly good things about KUKU.io that set them apart from any other scheduling tool.

Cons

  • I wish that the monthly emailed reports were customizable like the dashboard and more interactive for the customer.
  • I think that there are some other things that would be neat to add, but aren't something that is "missing". For example, it would be awesome if we could have preset permissions for adding users to reports instead of needing to un-click everything we don't want the client to see.

  • io corrupts headlines of articles you reshare. When you schedule a post with a URL in it, the Title of the blog post that is displayed below the picture/preview gets corrupted. So if you add any text in with the URL, that will replace the headline. I have noticed this on both LinkedIn and Twitter.
  • Very poor support team. I have found that the support team at KUKU.io are extremely rude, unwilling to help you and take a long time to reply. On some occasions I have had to message them three times in the chatbot for them to even reply. None of these times has the issue been resolved. When I reported to them that KUKU.io was corrupting headlines, at first they refused to take responsibility. Finally, they admitted it was the platforms fault but said they were not doing anything at that time to fix it.
  • Analytics are poor. The analytics suite in KUKU.io does not give you anything analytics for LinkedIn. The ones it provides for Twitter you can get directly from Twitter. So no value is added there.
  • You cannot tag LinkedIn accounts. I use HubSpot to schedule social media posts which allows you to tag companies at least. KUKU.io cannot.

The support team are extremely rude and often unresponsive. All of the issues I have reported to Kuku has been responded to with "we are not looking to resolve this issue at this time."On a few occasions, they have tried to deny the issue lies with them, before evidence has been provided. Then, they have refused to fix the issue.

Alternatives Considered

We still use BrightLocal to build citations and show our clients their Google My Business ranking placement. However, I like Agency Analytics better for their website ranking tool. I also like that Agency Analytics allows us to add clients as users to their campaign. Overall, I feel that Agency Analytics is a better website reporting tool.

I have also used: ContentStudio.io Aside from TweetDeck, all of these scheduling tools are preferable to Kuku because you can schedule posts in advance across multiple channels and accounts. If you're just using Twitter then TweetDeck is a great option to use and very reliable. Out of all of them I would recommend ContentStudio.io. You can add many accounts, across a range of platforms. You can clone posts that you would like to post more than once which not all scheduling tools offer. Here is a review of the others: Buffer - Buffer has a really nice interface. It is probably the best looking scheduling tool with the cleanest, simplest website. Sometimes I had issues with Buffer where it would stop posting and none of my scheduled posts would go out so I stopped using it. Since then, they may have fixed this issue. Zoho - I have never had any issues with posts not coming out/not coming out correctly from Zoho. However, Zoho probably has the ugliest interface. You also cannot see your posts in a 'calendar' only a list, which is very unhelpful. You also cannot clone posts. HubSpot - HubSpot supports a range of platforms (all the ones I have needed). You can tag LinkedIn company accounts which is a huge plus. It is really easy to schedule similar/the same posts across a range of platforms all at the same time.

Return on Investment

  • Very affordable at $99 a month. While we don't charge clients for it we only offer it for our premium, full-service accounts.
  • It makes the work we do "official" and substantiates the work we do.
  • I feel it legitimizes our SEO work.

  • io has crashed a few times for whole days, or been under maintenance without prior warning. This has happened on a few occasions where I have need to schedule time sensitive posts. During this time no support was available and I had to posts social media posts manually in all channels.
  • io corrupting the headline of social media posts has caused friction with clients as they were unhappy with the service. People in their network noticed the poor quality of the posts and commented that there was something wrong with them. This was an ongoing issue and happened with every single post coming out of KUKU.
  • Before this issue happened, KUKU was great for saving time because I could schedule posts in advance. This saved me hours in a day, and meant I could managed my multiple freelance and permanent roles. However, due to Kuku corrupting posts I can no longer do this.
