Google Search Console

Search console must be integrated with every website as it is crucial to get a thorough keyword analysis of webpages. It helps in improving your click-through rate and fasten the process of your post getting crawled. Its Robots.txt settings is a bit complicated, hence avoid it if you are not a technical person

Cons

ContentKing

  • None so far.
Hans Buis | TrustRadius Reviewer

Google Search Console

  • It can be a little difficult to navigate
  • More training resources would be an asset. A beginner is given the power to completely destroy a sites search results at the push of a button. Likewise it is a powerful tool to enhance search results also.
  • An option to take care of multiple versions of the same site simultaneously would be helpful. An option to use the same validation script across all versions and administer them simultaneously would be a time save (i.e. non-www, www, http://, and https:// versions of the same site).

The dashboard is comprehensive although the amount of data it provides. Alert settings page is easy to manage. And the Issues page is what I love, clear and useful design.

Google Search Console is a simple program that allows organizations to get a solid understanding of the way their site functions and how users land on it. It can be used for making critical business decisions regarding marketing budgets and that within itself is why it deserves a 10.

They are available to answer your questions through a convenient chat box module inside the app. In addition, they are very responsive over email and have many resources on their blog to improve your SEO practices. They also include resources to common set up scenarios so you can get to using ContentKing quickly.

As with all Google software, your primary source of help is their forums, their knowledge base articles, or whatever tutorials you can find on the web. Often answers on their forums are not straightforward and may not address the actual issue you're experiencing. The KB articles are typically written like instruction manuals - for better or for worse. Tutorials on the web may vary, but the odds are good someone out there had the same questions as you and was kind enough to document their experience.

Alternatives Considered

ContentKing

The difference with regular crawling tool is that ContentKing offers real time monitoring and HTTP header snapshots. You can also have issue tracking and history per URLs.

Google Search Console

We use Google Search Console in tandem with other products like Google Analytics - not in place of it. Search Console definitely provides information about organic search keywords that Google Analytics does not provide, so that's been a very helpful addition. We also use Yoast to help with optimization of pages that might be identified by Search Console. In the past, I've used tools like Moz and Screaming Frog do some similar search/ranking analysis; those do have some more unique features that help to guide next steps, but I don't think they're replacements for what Search Console provides, especially given the crawl/sitemap features.

Return on Investment

ContentKing

  • Saves huge amount of time on crawling websites individually.
  • Quick way to find wrong implementations of tags such as no-index tags etc.

Google Search Console

  • I'd say there is no business in the world that had negative ROI from GSC, since it's completely free, super easy to implement and has a great value for people with a brain. All of the companies I worked for in the last 10 years were using it and all of these companies had positive ROI.
