ContentKing

The times when [ContentKing] is most useful is when working with migrations, or changing dynamic websites that you want to continuously monitor fix and rapidly resolve issues. Because you can share URLs to key issues and create segments out of them it is very easy to highlight issues. Because it isn't charged a per user level this does mean you can give access to clients and their development teams.

Google Search Console

Google Search Console is helpful to understand what terms customers search for and click onto your website from. However, it's not helpful if you're looking for deep competitive insight on search terms people are using and how that impacts your website.

Pros

ContentKing

  • Proactive monitoring of the website on a broad spectrum of on-page and technical issues.
  • Insights for page-specific action points based on different data streams.
  • Identifying technical and on-page website issues.
Jarik Oosting | TrustRadius Reviewer

Google Search Console

  • You can also submit your sitemap directly to Google and get it crawled.
  • You can also index and crawl you updated and new webpages.
  • It also displays errors that are preventing your site pages to get indexed in Google.
  • You get a list of all the keywords for which your site is ranking.
  • You can track its position, CTR and impressions.

Cons

ContentKing

  • It is a single host only, which means that if your website spans mulitple subdomains it falls down
  • It isn't as easy to control as desktop crawlers, the continuous nature means you can't just give it a set of URLs to monitor.
  • Some of the issues it highlights aren't always issues, and so you need an expert user
Gerry White | 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).

Really like the walkthrough onboarding of the app to get your bearings when you sign up. You can quickly glance at the interface and understand where everything is located and what each feature is used for. The dashboard is incredibly useful to understand the health of your site and address any persistent issues on your site quickly.

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 respond very quickly and have deep technical knowledge so they will always find a solution to your problem. They are based in Europe but are planning to open offices soon in the USA that will help with time-difference issues. If you are based in Europe, you will get an answer in 15 minutes.

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

Content King provides a much more immersive dashboard. Additionally, the reports offered by Content king give us much more granular data allowing management to see the results country site by country site. The other tool would have required us to hire an external developer to create a custom dashboard to provide reporting. This to, us made the decision easy.

Google Search Console

SEMRush is a supplementary tool we use to provide competitive analysis. While it does, or should, provide the same data that Search Console does, but I only fully trust Search Console when it comes to basic performance in Google for the sites we develop and own. SEMRush, and other products like it, does provide much more in-depth insights that can help drive business decisions, including site performance on other search engines, along putting organic and paid search performance in one spot. However, SEMRush costs money while Search Console is free.

Return on Investment

ContentKing

  • My website health score went from 700 tot 986/1,00 in three years time.
  • The authority of my website went from 1,9 to 2,6 in three years time.
  • The visitors to my website climbed from 10/day to 60/day in three years time.
Christine Bonheure | TrustRadius Reviewer

Google Search Console

  • Given that this is a free tool, the return on investment has been particularly high - we've identified and addressed a few site issues that could have meant a reduction in search traffic.
  • Our organic search traffic has been on the rise in part due to the insights gained from the search traffic analytics provided within the console.
