ContentKing

ContentKing is well suited if your are managing different blogs or ecommerce stores and you need to keep an eye on any changes made. Good pricing structure based on the number of pages you have. You will be sure that you’re monitoring your sites effectively and staying on top of problems before they occur.

Google Trends

Google Trends is appropriate in so many scenarios, but I definitely suggest it for content ideas and inspiration. Many people utilize it after already writing their content to add in popular phrases or words, but that is not enough. The platform should be used prior and during the content creation process so that you can use the data to see what your audience/customers are interested in at the moment and create the content based on their interests. It can help, but I find it much less appropriate to use it after your article, eBook, etc. is already written. Maximize on this useful tool by ensuring the topic you're writing about is relevant in the first place before simply adding in popular keywords. An article that's written based on what's trending will be far more successful than an article that solely has popular phrases added to it.

Google Trends

  • Google Trends shows me geographic locations where a particular topic may be useful for advertising.
  • Google Trends allows me to drill down into those locations to metro and city levels where I can focus on exactly what local business clients need to know.
  • Google Trends allows me to identify and qualify search terms that my client's need to optimize their websites and social media content for.
  • Google Trends shows me what people are talking about in a specific location over a specific period of time. This is a great way to know what I should be posting on social media.

Cons

ContentKing

  • None so far.

Google Trends

  • Top charts: would be nice to include top charts for the current month.
  • Explainers: would be good to have some information buttons next to graphics and charts to show in depth what criteria go into making those charts.
  • More images: would be interesting to see trending image searches.

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 Trends is very easy to use. you just search for a certain keyword or phrase, and it tells you how often that keyword or phrase is searched, where in the world it is searched, and over the last decade, how often it is per year.

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.

I haven't needed to use any support for Google Trends. However, I've used Google's support in general and it's a hit or miss. Usually, there's a long wait or they don't understand my problem. They are the only ones that can help, so sometimes I feel stuck. They prioritize paying customers for sure.

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 Trends

I like using Google Trends because it gives you a clear visual of seasonal trends and compares multiple queries at once. However, I do prefer using other systems like SEMRush and Ahrefs because they are more detailed in the information they give you regarding your website and how specific keywords about the website in question.
